Category: Food & Drink

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!

Read Your Food For Thoughts

(I work Saturdays at a local pub and it tends to be a very quiet shift. The chef comes up to the bar to check the evening’s reservations just as a customer is ordering.)

Customer: “Can I have the ham and tomato baguette, but no tomato?”

(I look to the chef and he nods.)

Me: “Certainly.” *hits button for ham and tomato baguette* “What table was that?”

Customer: “Table six.”

(The chef leaves, giving me a thumbs up so I know he knows what to do.)

Me: “Okay that’s [price].”

Customer: *handing over the money* “Don’t you have to write a note?”

Me: “A note?”

Customer: “On the till, don’t you have to write a note letting the chef know?”

Me: *hands them their change* “No, he already knows.”

Customer: “How? Is he psychic?”

Me: “He was the guy that was just up here. He heard you.”

Customer: *walking away, muttering* “More fun when I thought he was psychic.”

Common Sense Just Melts Away

(A small crowd has suddenly formed in the store, so I jump on the line to help my coworker with the sandwiches. She’s already started one and tells me the customer wants a chicken bacon ranch. I make the sandwich right in front of the customer. After heating up all the meats, I have her tell me what kind of veggies she wants on it. When the last veggie is put on, this happens:)

Customer: “And tomatoes… but I wanted a melt, not a chicken bacon ranch.”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “I told the other girl I wanted a melt.”

Me: “Okay, ma’am. I’ll make you a new sandwich, but why didn’t you say anything for the last two minutes? You could see it wasn’t a melt, right?”

Customer: “Yeah, I knew it wasn’t a melt. I thought you were going to figure out it wasn’t one either.”

Hard To Drink In This Much Stupid

| Seattle, WA, USA | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I am the customer in this story. I’m in a coffee shop and there is a man in front me who has just rattled out a majorly complex iced coffee order with a myriad of flavor sauces, even going so far as to request a layer of whipped cream in the middle of the drink.)

Cashier: “All right, that’ll be [price]. Your order might take a moment.”

Customer: “That’s fine.”

(I order my own coffee, which is just a mocha latte, without whipped cream. The barista finishes my drink first, as it’s much simpler. It’s in a paper cup, as it’s hot, whereas his is being seen prepared in a clear plastic cup, as it’s iced.)

Barista: “Mocha latte for [My Name]!”

(The customer with the long order swoops in before I can grab my drink, swiping it off the counter and taking a sip immediately.)

Customer: “This is perfect! Thank you so much!”

(He then runs out the door before either of us can speak.)

Me: “Did he just..?”

Barista: “… I’ll make you another drink.”

Reached Their Tea Total

| NY, USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink

Customer: “Hello. Do you have any tea?”

Me: “Yes. Caffeinated teas: we have an English breakfast black, an  Earl Grey, and a China green. Herbal: we have mint, hibiscus, peach, and chamomile.”

Customer: “That’s too overwhelming.” *walks out*
