    Salad With A Side Order Of Obnoxiousness

    | Jacksonville, Fl, USA | Bad Behavior, Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

    (I am a waitress at a pizza restaurant. We use a number system to place orders. Each ticket gets a number to put on their table for us to bring the food to them. My boss, the cook, has two different orders of the same salad, one small for table four, and one large for table five, which is supposed to be shared.)

    Boss: *handing me the large* “This one goes to table four.”

    (I take the salad to the table and come back to pick up the next order.)

    Boss: *handing me the small* “Actually, this one goes to four. The other one goes to five.”

    Me: “I took the other one to four already!”

    Boss: “Then go get it back!”

    (I go over to the table with the new salad. Luckily they have not eaten it yet.)

    Me: “I’m very sorry, but I gave you the wrong salad. This one’s yours.”

    Customer: “What’s the difference?”

    Me: “The one I gave you is a large. It’s supposed to be shared. You ordered a small. The large is for the next table over.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay.”

    (The customer takes the small salad from me. I reach for the large salad, and the customer picks up her fork, licks it, and sticks it in the salad.)

    Customer: “You gave it to me, so it’s mine. Where’s my pizza?”

    Customer At The Other Table: “We’re still going to need that salad.”

    (I was speechless. I went back to my boss and told him what happened. He then yelled at me for not stopping the customer. Then he refused to make another salad. Table five came back inside to get a refund on the salad, which meant the boss had to come over. I got yelled at again for ‘not making them pay for it.’ I quit after that.)

    Like Getting Blood From A Stone

    | Miami, FL, USA | Bad Behavior, Health & Body

    (My friend and I are walking into a store with a blood drive van parked up front.)

    Recruiter: “Hi! Would you like to donate blood? It could save a life!”

    Friend: “Sorry. I don’t believe in helping others.”

    Cut Cut-Throat

    | Fresno, CA, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Family & Kids

    (I am processing a layaway for a customer. She is a bit rude with me but I proceed with a smile. The customer has multiple items in her cart.)

    Me: “Hi. Were you thinking of putting in a layaway today, or were you going to place a final payment on a previous layaway?”

    Customer #1: *rudely* “I have about 20 items in my cart. Does it look like I am going to make a final payment?”

    Me: “Oh, I apologize. I was not sure if you were finished shopping.”

    Customer #1: “Well, I am.”

    Me: “Okay. Have you done a layaway with us before?”

    Customer #1: “Yes, I sure have.”

    Me: “May I have your number please?”

    Customer #1: *tells her number*

    (While she is telling her number, another customer comes up to the side.)

    Customer #2: “Hey, are my items still here?”

    Me: “Sure are. Just let me know when you are ready and I will come help you out.”

    Customer #1: “Excuse me, but I will have my layaway processed first. You do not have to be rude and cut in front of me like I am invisible!”

    Customer #2: “Oh, no. I am sorry. I was making sure my stuff was still there.”

    Customer #1: “Well, move!”

    (Customer #2 walks away in shock.)

    Customer #1: “Geez! Some people think they can just cut!”

    Me: “I am sorry, but that was my mother.”

    Empty Threats Over Full Coffee

    | Los Angeles, CA, USA | Bad Behavior, Food & Drink

    (I’m currently a greeter, but whenever there’s a line for a movie I go help take tickets. We’re near the end of the line when I see a woman with a large coffee cup that’s not from our cafe.)

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but we don’t allow outside food or drink.”

    Customer: “But you don’t serve coffee here.”

    Me: “Actually, ma’am, we have a cafe just on the other side of the concessions.”

    Customer: “Well, their coffee’s crap.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but I can’t let you bring that into the theater.”

    (The customer SPIKES her full coffee cup into the nearby garbage can.)

    Customer: “I’m never buying any food from you again!”

    (She storms into the theater. My coworker, who finished the line while I was dealing with the customer, looks at me.)

    Coworker: “What kind of threat was that? She’s not buying anything from us NOW!”

    First Day Back And Already Pooped

    | USA | Bad Behavior, Health & Body

    (A customer runs in.)

    Customer: *breathlessly* “Where’s your bathroom?”

    Me: “Down the hall to the right.”

    Customer: *runs off*

    (I see him a few minutes later, walking back.)

    Customer: “Thanks… Uh, could you tell the person who cleans the bathrooms that I’m sorry?”

    Me: *confused* “That you’re sorry?”

    Customer: “Yes I tried to hold it in but… I didn’t make it in time.” *leaves*

    (I go to the men’s bathroom and take a peek. Feces are everywhere, on the walls, on the floor, on the mirror. It looks like an explosion. I close the door. Sometime later the bathroom cleaner walks in.)

    Bathroom Cleaner: “Hey, [My Name]. Good afternoon.”

    Me: “Hey. Oh, before you go—”

    (Too late, she’s already opened the door to the men’s.)

    Bathroom Cleaner: “WHAT THE H*** HAPPENED HERE?”

    Me: “Er, well…” *explains*

    Bathroom Cleaner: “Geez! I just got back from vacation, to feces on the wall!”
