    Stupid Customers, like the rest of us have to eat and drink. Sadly like the rest of us, they sometimes eat with the rest of us. For every waiter, server, drive-thru operator, coffee shop barista, and restaurant manager who has had to deal with fake allergies, vegetarians who don’t know the meaning of the word and idiots who have yet to understand the concept of clearly listed ingredients, we salute you!

    Just Roll With It

    | Arizona, USA | Food & Drink

    (I wait tables at a sushi place. I’m currently serving two male customers.)

    Customer #1: *to customer #2* “Look at her eyes. Just look at them!”

    Customer #2: *to me* “Can I get a lunch combo?”

    Me: “Of course.”

    Customer #1: *to customer #2* “Did you not f***ing hear me? Look at her eyes!”

    Customer #2: *to customer #1* “I did. They’re beautiful!”

    Customer #1: *to me* “Can I have a lunch combo? Also, I love you!”

    To Whom This May (Not) Concern, Part 3

    | Canada | Food & Drink

    (There are at least 10 people in the restaurant. I am the only person manning front counter, so when I finish bagging each order, I call out what I’m holding so the customer can come pick it up.)

    Me: “Cheeseburger combo. Cheeseburger combo!”

    Customer: *raises his hand*

    Me: “Cheeseburger combo?”

    Customer: *takes bag*

    (I continue taking orders and bagging them as they come up. Two minutes later, the customer that took the cheeseburger combo comes back.)

    Customer: “Hey, this is a cheeseburger combo. I ordered a chicken burger!”

    (I take the cheeseburger combo back from him and continue bagging orders. About a minute later, he has his chicken burger.)

    Me: *gives him his chicken burger*

    Customer: *gives me a condescending look and stomps off*

    Yes, Your Royal Prawncess

    | South Carolina, USA | Food & Drink

    (I’ve just started my shift when I am called to a register. The customer is ranting about an item that is not on sale.)

    Me: “Hello, may I help you?”

    Customer: “This shrimp is not scanning right. I made a special trip for it and you people are going to be sued for false advertising!”

    Me: “I do apologize, but this is the wrong shrimp. Would you like me to get the correct one?”

    Customer: “The wrong one? No, it’s not!”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am, it is. The label and ad states the $8.39 shrimp is on sale. This is the $9.99 shrimp.”

    Customer: “I don’t care. I shouldn’t be expected to read labels! I should get anything I want because I am special!” *storms off without her shrimp*

    Eating For Free (And For Two)

    , | Durham, NC, USA | Food & Drink

    (I work at a fast food restaurant gives customers their meals for free if they have been waiting a long time. This particular day, I’ve been told to void the next couple of cars. One girl in her 20s pulls up while talking on the phone.)

    Me: “Hello! I’m sorry for your wait. Your meal is on the house.”

    Customer: “Oh, really?! That’s awesome!”

    Me: “There’s your meal! Have a great day.”

    Customer: *into her phone* “Dude, [restaurant] just gave me my food for free! Yeah, and it was like a six dollar meal!” *quietly so we can’t hear* “I might be pregnant, but this just makes up for it!”

    Not So Different, You And I

    | Florence, KY, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I’m a waiter in a very authentic, very small Japanese restaurant. I’m filling drinks at a table of four people in their mid-twenties—two guys and two girls.)

    Customer: “Um, yeah…so, I have a question.”

    Me: “Sure. What would you like to know?”

    Customer: “Yeah…so, like…um…Japanese…uh…Asians…do Asian people like dessert?”

    Me: “Well, of course they enjoy dessert. Doesn’t everyone?”

    Customer: “So, like…what do they eat, then?”

    Me: “Sweet things. Cake, ice cream, candy, and all kinds of sweets.”

    Customer: “Oh. So just like us?”

    Me: “Yes… just like us.”

    (She stares at me, unable to understand why I’m grinning in disbelief. No words are exchanged, so I walk away. As I’m walking, I hear her friend say, “Wow, he hates you.” At the end of her meal she asks for a fortune cookie.)
