    Would You Like That For Her Or To Go

    , | Lindale, TX, USA | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink, Love/Romance

    (I am in drive-thru, using a head set to communicate with customers. A male customer pulls up.)

    Me: “Hi, how are you?”

    Customer: “I’m doing well! How are you tonight?”

    Me: “I’m good! What can I get for you?”

    (The customer places his order, but has a question that I am unable to answer. So, my manager speaks into the headset to answer him.)

    Customer: “WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GIRL?!”

    Manager: “Sir, you’ll see her at the window.”

    Customer: “WELL, BUTT OUT OF OUR CONVERSATION!”

    (The customer pulls up to window.)

    Customer: “TELL YOUR BOSS TO LEAVE US ALONE!” *glares at the window*

    Me: “Um, yes sir…”

    Bad Day LA

    , | Goshen, IN, USA | Food & Drink, Love/Romance

    (It’s my first night working drive-thru. I’m really nervous and trying to be polite to the customers. A man orders his meal and pulls up to window to pay. He looks mad. He pays me, and I give him his change and hand him his bag.)

    Me: “Have a nice day!”

    Customer: “Not with the day I’m having.”

    Me: “Yeah, we all have those kind of days.”

    Customer: “NOT with the kind of day I’m having! When your wife leaves you for a richer man, goes to California with him, and then calls you because she wants money to come home, THEN you’re having a bad day!” *screeches out of parking lot*

    Always After The Next Best Thing

    | Southampton, UK | Love/Romance

    Caller: “Is [colleague] there?”

    Me: “No, I’m afraid she’s left for the day. Is there anything I can help with?”

    Caller: “Yes, I was wondering if she had a p-word?”

    Me: “Sorry?”

    Caller: “You know, a partner? A boyfriend?”

    Me: “I’m sorry? Yes, I’m afraid she does. Is there anything else I can help with?”

    Caller: “Yes, uh, do you have a boyfriend?”

    Me: “Uh, yes, I do.”

    Caller: “Oh, right, that’s a shame. You sound like a lovely girl. Is there anyone else in your shop without a boyfriend?”

    Me: “Uh, no, I’m afraid everyone here is married.”

    Caller: “Are they all faithful?”

    Me: *speechless*
