Custumer or Costumer?

Post by Kangas on Tue Sep 11, 2012 10:16 am

Customer or Costumer? Do you know the differences?

These two words are sometimes confused, leading to quite funny outcomes. Usually the word we want to use is customer, meaning client, buyer. However if we write costumer we will end up meaning someone who makes, sells or rents costumes for theatrical productions. Quite different isn't it? Wink

These are the definitions, according to Dictionary.com

  • Customer
       
    noun
    1. a person who purchases goods or services from another; buyer; patron.
    2. Informal. a person one has to deal with: a tough customer; a cool customer.


  • Costumer
       
    noun
    1. a person who makes, sells, or rents costumes, as for theatrical productions.
    2. a clothes tree.
