    Some customers can be demanding, but within reason. These customers however make some requests that go beyond demanding, beyond reasonable, beyond possible! These requests, like the customers, are crazy!

    They Won’t Stop For Muffin

    | Montreal, QC, Canada | Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I’m a cook working the breakfast shift. I notice two women sitting at the bar arguing with the waitress. We no longer serve bagels due to lack of sales and a high volume of losses, this being specified on the menu.)

    Customer #1: “So, do you guys serve like bagel sandwiches. You know like the ones at [Popular Chain Restaurant]?”

    Waitress: “I’m sorry, but those are not offered on the menu.”

    Customer #2: “But you can make it right?”

    Waitress: “Is it on the menu?”

    Customer #2: “No, but can you?”

    Waitress: “It’s not on the menu, so I”ll have to say no.”

    Customer #2: “You do make breakfast sandwiches though?”

    Waitress: “Well, that is on the menu so yes.”

    Customer #1: “Okay, so we’ll take the English muffin.”

    Waitress: “Okay.”

    Customer #1: “But I want to switch the ham for bacon.”

    Waitress: “We can do that.”

    Customer #1: “I’ll also want lettuce and tomato in it.”

    Customer #2: “At the same time we’d like to switch the English muffin for a bagel.”

    The Coupon Situation Is Fluid

    (I overhear a woman complaining down the phone:)


    (There is a pause, with the other line presumably apologizing profusely.)

    Woman: “Can I get some coupons?”

    Driving You To Not Drink

    | Fort McMurray, AB, Canada | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

    (I work at a dual restaurant; one dining room, two counters. One is a well known Canadian coffee shop; the other is a burger place. People love their coffee, so often don’t get a soft drink from my side.)

    Me: “Okay, you want a number nine with medium fries. Do you want a drink with that to make it a combo?”

    Customer: “No, my wife’s grabbing coffee from [Coffee Place].”

    (He pays, his wife grabs a table, and I go to wipe down some trays. My coworker hands off the food, but the customer just stands there staring at me.)

    Me: “Sorry, is there a problem?”

    Customer: “Yeah, don’t I get a [Soda] or something?”

    Me: “No.”

    Customer: “Well, why not?”

    Me: “Because literally less than two minutes ago you told me you didn’t want one.”

    Customer: “Well, I should get a drink for the price I paid!” *walks off*

    Next Customer: “Did he really get mad because you didn’t give him something be said he didn’t want?”

    Me: “Yup. You still wonder why people don’t like this job?”

    Total Block-Head

    | Woodbury, MN, USA | Crazy Requests, Transportation

    (The store is getting a new parking lot so there are limited spaces.)

    Customer: *runs up to the customer service desk* “The parking lot is a mess!”

    Me: “Yes, I’m aware of that.”

    Customer: “There’s not enough parking spaces for everyone! I was forced to park in the back of the lot.”

    Me: “Yes. I parked seven blocks away from the store.”

    Customer: “Oh…” *slowly walks away*

    Refunder Blunder, Part 8

    | Dallas, TX, USA | Bizarre, Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

    (A woman approaches me with a 12-pack of soda in her cart.)

    Customer: “I found the sodas in the parking lot.”

    (I’m thinking, ‘wow, nice person! She wants to give them to whoever forgot them!’ Then she says:)

    Customer: “I don’t really like the flavor, and I want to exchange them for another kind.”

    Me: “Wait, to clarify: you found some sodas in the parking lot and want to exchange them?

    Customer: “Yes.”

    Me: “Uh… I needed to ask my manager.”

    (I ask my manager out of earshot.)

    Manager: “H***, no! Is this woman out of her mind?!”

    (I ended up telling her she could keep them if she wanted, but we were certainly not going to refund or exchange them. She rolled her eyes, grumbled, and handed the sodas over.)
