How About We Read You The Riot Act

| Cape Town, South Africa | Love/Romance

Customer: “Hi, I am looking for a fashion book.”

Me: “Sure, sir. Do you know the title or any specifics?”

Customer: “No, I do not.”

Me: “I will show you the fashion section then, sir.”

(As we walk to the fashion section…)

Customer: “I don’t know why people read; it’s like a disease! I find Facebook and other things on the internet are more fun.”

Me: “I enjoy reading, sir. It’s quite stimulating and exciting.”

Customer: “So, if you read, that means you don’t have a girlfriend?”

Me: “I do have a girlfriend. We have been together a long time.”

Customer: “How does she put up with you reading?”

Me: “She enjoys reading too, sir.”

Customer: “Oh, so you two must have a very boring life together and do nothing fun!”

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*
