Crazy Customer Stories
Posted 21 March 2008 - 05:43 PM
I just had a customer in my shop that I'm still scratching my head about. I do vintage jewelry restoration and repair and a customer just left after dropping off earrings that she wants converted. Conversions from clip earrings to pierced is something I do on a daily basis...that isn't strange at all. But this customer wants her 40's style clip earrings converted to...clip earrings. All I could do was look at her and say "Are you sure?" So unprofessional on my part. All I could do was stare at her ears, which are pierced, and verify with her that she wanted me to rip apart these earrings just to put a new version of the same thing back on. I still don't get it.
And don't get me started with the customer who wanted me to make a replica of a Victorian mourning hair jewelry necklace with her dead dogs hair!
Is it a full moon tonight?
I'd love to hear any good crazy customer stories that you guys may have.

I had a transvestite "model" for me when I managed Victoria's Secret. That was a surprise! Don't quite know how he got the items and into the dressing room, but I asked if anyone needed anything and he threw open the door and asked if I liked.

The Drag Queens are pretty fun most of the time.

The only thing I can think of is that she watches too much Antiques Roadshow and thinks if they stay clips they will retain the collectable value...which isn't true.

Where I work now a lady once kept her dead hamster on a plate on top of the kitchen counter. She wanted to wait for a frost to bury it, it was January in western New York!

Well she passed a customer who was on the way up to my work. the crazy chic had warned her that the ice cream wasn't free. I guess that's what set her off. Who knows, maybe i am the devil! What a crazy bitch.
