    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!

    Driving All Night Will Burn Rubber

    | New Brunswick, Canada | Food & Drink, Rude & Risque

    (A couple in a car comes through the drive through.)

    Me: “Hello, [Store Name], may I take your order?”

    Customer: “Do you know of anywhere around here that is open at this time of night, and sells condoms?”

    Me: “No, I’m sorry, everything is closed.”

    Customer: “Alright, thanks.”

    (The customer drives away, and comes back 15 minutes later.)

    Me: “Hello, [Store Name], may I take your order?”

    Customer: “Hi, could I have a blueberry muffin wrapped in lots and lots of plastic wrap?”

    The Frozen Wastes

    | Canada | Food & Drink, Rude & Risque, Top

    Customer: “Hello dear. Could you tell me where the bathrooms are?”

    Me: “Towards the back of the restaurant, behind the bar.”

    Customer: “Thank you.”

    (The customer goes away for a time and comes to find me later.)

    Customer: “Thank you again, dear, but you may want to change your bathroom decor. It looks a lot like a freezer.”

    Me: “Ma’am, our bathrooms look nothing like a freezer. They are normal bathrooms.”

    Customer: “Oh dear…”

    Not The Brightest Idea

    | Iowa, USA | Food & Drink

    Customer: “Can you turn this light off?” *points to the light hanging over the table*

    Me: “I’m sorry, but all the lights are connected. I can take the bulb out, but I would need to get a towel because it’s hot.”

    Customer: “Okay.”

    (I return under a minute later with a towel to see the light off.)

    Customer: “I took care of it.”

    (After clearing the table, I see she broke the bulb and put the glass pieces in her salad.)

    Drive Hoo

    | Atlanta, GA, USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink, Top

    Me: “Welcome to [Fast-Food Restaurant], how may I help you?”

    Customer: “I’ll take a number 1, 5, and 12.”

    Me: “Alright, that’ll be $12.09.”

    Customer: “Woohoo!”

    (The customer drives to the window.)

    Me: “That’s $12.09.”

    Customer: “Woohoo!”

    *pause*

    Me: “$12.09.”

    Customer: “Woohoo!”

    Me: “12.”

    Customer: “Woo!”

    Me: “09.”

    Customer: “Hoo!”

    Me: “12.09″

    Customer: “Woohoo!”

    Me: “…09.12″

    Customer: “Hoowoo!”

    Me: “90.21″

    Customer: “Ooh-oow!”

    Me: “Well played, sir.”

    No Pancakes? How Waffle!

    | Springfield, MO, USA | Food & Drink

    Me: “Hi, thanks for choosing [name of restaurant]. What can I get for you today?”

    Customer: “You guys serve breakfast all day?”

    Me: “Yes sir.”

    Customer: “Do you serve pancakes?”

    Me: “No, sir. Just waffles.”

    Customer: “Well, I don’t like waffles. Can you just make this one exception?”

    Me: “Well, sir I can’t go against code and grill you up a regular pancake but I’ll tell you what: I can make you a pancake with these awesome little holes used to trap syrup on top so it cant escape off the side.”

    Customer: “Really!? You would do that for me? I’ll take two!”
