    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!

    Half Cooked For The Half Minded

    | Sydney, Australia | Food & Drink

    Customer: “Excuse me, I’d like half a chicken please.”

    Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, we seem to be out. The next load should be ready in about 15-20 minutes.”

    Customer: “But I just want a half, not a whole one!”

    Me: “I’m sorry about the wait. As soon as they finish cooking, I will cut you one straight away.”

    Customer: “But I just want a half! Can’t you just get one out of the oven now and cut it for me?”

    Me: “Um, no. If I took one out early and cut it, it wouldn’t be cooked in the middle.”

    Customer: “But I only want a half chicken! It should take less time to cook than a whole one!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but I have to wait for them to finish. I promise I will cut you one straight away.”

    Customer: “I don’t understand why you’re making this so difficult for me to buy half a chicken!” *storms off*

    The Lost And Eaten

    , | Kansas City, MO, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (Sometimes, customers call the store when their order is wrong. This one was a little bit more special.)

    Manager: “How can I help you today?”

    Customer: “I didn’t get my food!”

    Manager: “What do you mean?”

    Customer: “When I came through the drive-thru, I got my food. But when I got home it was gone!”

    Manager: “Let me get this straight. You got your food at the window?”

    Customer: “Yes!”

    Manager: “And it was in your car when you left?”

    Customer: “Yes!”

    Manager: “And it was gone when you got home?”

    Customer: “It wasn’t there anymore.”

    Manager: “So between here and home, you lost your food? How do you expect us to fix it?”

    Customer: *hangs up*

    Perverted Product Previews

    | Connecticut, USA | Food & Drink

    (I am a food service specialist in a deli.)

    Me: “Hi, can I help you?”

    Customer: “I want a quarter pound of American cheese.”

    Me: “How is this sliced?”

    Customer: “Don’t show me the slice! And I don’t want a sample, either!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir, it’s just our policy.”

    Customer: “Well, that’s a stupid policy. If I were the manager, I would get rid of that.”

    Me: “Well, most people like to see the slice so they can make sure it’s what they like.”

    Customer: “What did you say? Most people want to see the slice? Well, that’s just sick!”

    Self-Serve Sashimi

    | Philadelphia, PA, USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink

    (I work at a co-op food store and it’s not uncommon for people to eat an apple or something while they shop and pay for it at the register. A woman comes to the check out line and I notice an empty raw fish package.)

    Customer: *trying to be discrete* “Oh…um…I’m also paying for this.”

    (She holds up the empty raw fish package.)

    Me: “Uh, excuse me, did…did you eat that?”

    Customer: “Keep it down! I don’t want the entire store to know!”

    Well, It’s The Sponge’s Day Off

    | Ord, NE, USA | Food & Drink

    (It’s my first time running drive-through. The floor manager and one or two other employees also have their headsets on.)

    Me: “Welcome to [restaurant]. What can I get you?”

    Customer: “I will have a chicken sandwich, and my grandson will have a Crabby Patty kids meal.”

    (The floor manager’s jaw drops. The other employees burst out laughing.)

    Me: *trying not to laugh* “Ma’am, we don’t have Crabby Patties. Those are off of a kids’ TV show.”

    Customer: “Oh…well, do you have anything like it?”
