    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!

    AA: Angry Alcoholics

    | Burlington, VT, USA | Food & Drink

    Me: “Hello, ladies! How are you today? May I get you something to drink?”

    Customer: “No, nothing to drink. I don’t drink. Just a sweet tea, please.”

    Me: “Our iced tea is unsweetened. I can bring sugar with it, or if you like, we can make you an Arnold Palmer–”

    Customer: *angrily* “I told you I don’t drink!”

    Me: “Ma’am, an Arnold Palmer is iced tea mixed with lemonade.”

    Customer: “Oh, I’ll try that!”

    Ice And A Side Of Chill Pill

    , | UK | Food & Drink, Top

    (Note: I am working in a drive thru.)

    Me: “Hello, can I take your order?”

    (I hear the customer sigh. They then carry on talking to a friend.)

    Me: “Hello, can I take an order please?”

    Customer: “God! One minute please! Can’t a person just have some peace without being pestered for money?”

    Me: “Um, sir, you’ve driven up to the drive thru speaker. I assumed you’d wish to order. If not, you should have gone into the car park.”

    Customer: “You’re being extremely rude. And how did you know I was a man?”

    Me: “There is a camera facing you, sir. I didn’t mean to come across as rude, but you are causing a queue, so if you do not plan to order, please leave the queue.”

    Customer: *sigh* “Fine.”

    (He gives an incredibly long order, with special requests. I read the order back to him to verify that it is correct.)

    Me: “Okay, if that order is complete, check the screen and come to the window.”

    Customer: “God, what took you so long?! *throws change on the counter and drives off*

    (Ten minutes later, he comes back.)

    Customer: “I am not happy!”

    Me: “What’s the problem with your order, si–”

    Customer: “I specifically asked for coke with no ice, and you put it in wrong! Guess what? There’s ice in my coke!”

    Me: “Sir, I read the order back to you twice and then asked you to check the screen to ensure it was correct.”

    Customer: “Well you serve people everyday. You should have been able to guess from experience that I didn’t want ice. My demeanor made it very obvious!”

    Half Dumb And Half Stupid

    | Nebraska, USA | Food & Drink

    Customer: “It’s my birthday tomorrow and I want to have some chicken delivered. I want 50 pieces of chicken, half baked chicken and half fried chicken.”

    Me: “Okay, so, you want 25 pieces of baked chicken and 25 pieces of fried chicken?”

    Customer: “No, I want half baked and half fried.”

    Me: “Well, half of 50 is 25. So, you want 25 baked and 25 fried?”

    Customer: “No! I want 12 pieces of baked chicken and the rest fried chicken!”

    Cheap Like White On Rice

    | Minnesota, USA | Food & Drink

    (We have a customer who comes in and complains every single time to try and get his meal for free. I have seen him in action so I know to be cautious, but alas, he complains anyway.)

    Customer: “What’s wrong with this rice?”

    Me: “I’m not sure what you mean, sir–”

    Customer: “It’s too light in color!”

    Me: “Does it taste bad?”

    Customer: “No, but it’s too light! It’s usually darker!”

    Me: “That means it’s fresh, sir. It just came out. The longer it sits, the darker it gets.”

    Customer: “This is bulls***!”

    (The rice was sampled and seen to be in excellent quality, but he continued claiming it was BS until he had to be escorted out.)

    Self Serve And Self Deserved

    | Ohio, USA | Food & Drink

    (I work at an all-you-can-eat buffet. My job is to bring drinks to the table and take away the dirty plates.)

    Me: “Welcome to [restaurant name]! I’ll go ahead and get your drinks. The buffet is ready when you are.”

    Customer: “Thanks!”

    (I bring their drinks to the table and see that they are still there and have not gotten up to get their plates. I go about my business. About 10 minutes later, I see they are still sitting at their table with no food in front of them.)

    Me: “Are you waiting on someone?”

    Customer: “There you are! We’re starving! I’ll start off with chicken, corn, and mashed potatoes.”

    Me: “Okay, well, the buffet is over there and you can help yourself.”

    Customer: “You mean we have to get it ourselves?”

    Customer #2: “Can’t you get our food for us?”

    Me: “Are you disabled?”

    Customer: “No, we’re not.”

    Me: “The buffet is self-serve. The plates are up at the buffet.”

    (Needless to say, I didn’t get a tip.)
