This happened last year on April Fool's day. Like any other store, we get prank calls on that day and just go along with it. Some of them are pretty funny and give us a much needed laugh.
One I recieved that really wasn't a prank, just a result of the customer mumbling over the phone:
Woman: *mumbling* Do you have small talking ferrets?
Me: Talking ferrets?
Woman: *still mumbling* Yes, I'd like to buy a small talking ferret, a green and blue one.
Me : LOL, very funny, but I'm afraid we don't sell blue and green talking ferrets. We do have brown and white ones that go "Eeeeeee"
Woman: *now shouting and sounding much clearer* I saw them the other day, small PARROTS, I just wanted to know if they talk! Are you a moron?
Um, no they don't talk. I'm sorry, I thought you were a prank caller asking for small talking ferrets.
She hung up.
I still feel embarrassed about it, but the SM only laughed when I told him later that night. Apparently he got the same call from what I assume was the same woman, and he thought she was saying "Ferrets" too.
I bet that women will probably never call us again, since it seems to her that two of the employees are out of their minds.
