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!

Not Exactly Heavy Math

| Roscoe, IL, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Math & Science

(I just finish helping someone when a young man walks up to me.)

Customer: “Do you guys sell ice cubes?”

Me: “Yes. Would you like an 8-pound bag or a 16-pound bag?”

Customer: “What’s the difference?”

Me: “The 16-pound bag holds twice as much ice cubes as the 8-pound bag.”

Customer: “Is that the heavier one?”

Paying It Fast Forward

, | Kirksville, MO, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink

(I am in the drive through lane because I am delivering a forgotten hat to a roommate that works there. I rattle off my order and pull forward. I then notice that a truck, that for whatever reason has shut down in the other drive through lane, has turned on and I am unsure whether I have accidentally cut him off.)

Me: “Uhm, I am the one with the [order].”

(The cashier takes my credit card and pushes a couple buttons.)

Me: “And could I pay for the guy-behind-me’s order? I think I cut him off.”

Cashier: “Uh… hold on.”

(She goes to the back to confer with the manager, and then pops back.)

Cashier: “Yeah, one moment.”

(She runs my card twice. I receive both receipts, deliver the hat to my roommate, get my food and then drive off. Later that night, my roommate comes home.)

Roommate: “So, apparently you set off a chain reaction. The rest of the cars in the line started to pay for the next one. [Coworker] was so relieved when it stopped! It was so confusing!”

One Man’s Chocolate Is Another Man’s Poison

| Clearwater, FL, USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink

(My boyfriend and I are walking through a store when he notices a chocolate fountain on display.)

Boyfriend: “Who would actually buy one of these? You can just rent them.”

Me: “Probably someone who entertains a lot.”

Boyfriend: “But if you owned one then your guests would never leave!”

(Another customer has overheard us and butts in.)

Random Creepy Customer: “Poison! If you poison them then they’ll never come back!”

Boyfriend: “… I guess that’s true.”

(At this point, my boyfriend quickly leads me to another aisle.)

Boyfriend: *whispering* “If you ever see that customer again, don’t eat anything she offers you!”

What The World Needs Now…

| CA, USA | At The Checkout, Family & Kids, Food & Drink

(I work at an ice cream/burger joint with a drive thru. A mother comes through with a little girl in the back seat, I have just handed the mother her order when she pulls the car up a bit so I can directly hand the little girl her ice cream.)

Me: “And here is your sundae!”

Mother: “What do you say to the nice lady?”

Little Girl: “I love you!”

Me: *embarrassed and confused* “I love you, too.”

(The mother laughs really hard while the little girl grins at me. My coworkers heard and laughed, too. She was the cutest little girl ever!)

An Out-Of-Order Order

| USA | Bad Behavior, Food & Drink

(I work in a small deli in a small town. When we get busy we run two slicers (by hand). During an extremely busy morning shift, we spend a few minutes frantically slicing meat and cheese. We’d just finished the last order when a customer comes up to the counter and starts digging through the stacked orders.)

Me: “Can I help you find something, sir?”

Customer: “A half pound of cheddar cheese.”

(I look through the orders and then turn to ask the other employee if we’ve missed the customer’s order in the rush. The customer stops me.)

Customer: “Oh, I haven’t ordered yet.”

(I smile and grabbed my deli pad to take his order as he continues.)

Customer: “I was just going to take someone else’s order.”
