    Category: Funny Names

    If there’s one common mistake that all stupid customers have made, it is that simple error of getting a name wrong. Be it a product, a person, a store or a place, these simplest of gems often have the most horrific and memorable results…

    Me: “Nina! Here’s your tall hot chocolate!”

    (The customer takes it, walks away, and comes back.)

    Customer: “What was the name?”

    Me: “Nina.”

    Customer: “Oh, that’s not me.”

    Me: *looking at the line of drinks and not seeing any other hot chocolates waiting to be made* “…and you’re waiting for a hot chocolate?”

    Customer: “No, a strawberries and cream Frappuccino.”

    Me: “…”

    (I’ve recently started my first job as a cashier at a small town’s grocery store. A large, seemingly drunk man has approached my register at night.)

    Customer: “Hey! Where’s Hitler?”

    Me: “Uhm… what?”

    Customer: “You heard me! Where is Hitler?”

    Me: *thinking this is a joke of some sort* “He’s, well, dead.”

    Customer: “What? No! Not that Hitler! I mean your boss!”

    Acting Stupido

    | Dahlgren, VA, USA | Funny Names, Hotels & Lodging

    Guest: “Oh, Marla is a pretty name; but it doesn’t sound very Italian.”

    Me: “Why would I have an Italian name?”

    Guest: “You’re Italian, right? I mean, you look Italian.”

    Me: “Nope, not Italian. Mom’s Mexican and Dad is White.”

    Guest: “So, you’re kinda Italian?”

    Me: “Nope. Not kinda. Not at all.”

    Guest: “Well, you should be. You would be a pretty Italian.”

    Me: *smiles and hands them their key* “So, since I’m not Italian, I am ugly?”

    Chocolate Chip Slip

    | Pigeon Forge, TN, USA | Food & Drink, Funny Names

    (I am a cashier behind a counter at a cafe when a middle-aged man walks in.)

    Me: “Yes, what can I get for you?”

    Customer: “A packet of chocolate and a chip milkshake.”

    Me: “Pardon?”

    Customer: “Packet of chocolate and a chip milkshake!”

    Me: “Don’t you mean—”

    Customer: *really loudly* “A packet of chocolate and a chip milkshake! How hard is that—” *realizes* “—Sorry.”

    Me: “Packet of chips and a chocolate milkshake?”

    (Customer nodded and collected his food. I’ve never seen anyone rush to their table so quickly!)

    The ‘Mocha Chocolate’ Is Just The Cream On Top

    | USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Funny Names

    (I am a customer in a small local coffee shop next to a hospital. A woman in scrubs acting important cuts in front of me but being early and a regular I let it slide. She starts to order:)

    Customer: “Give me a tall grande skinny chocolate mocha frappe soy latte with cream.”

    Barista: “What was that order?”

    Customer: “Uh…” *repeats something different*

    Barista: “What size; we have small and large.”

    Customer: “What about tall grande skinny did you not understand?”

    Barista: “So that is a large mocha latte with whipped cream?”

    Customer: “No, that’s chocolate mocha!”

    Barista: “Chocolate and mocha are the same thing.”

    (At this point I laugh and the customer turns and glares at me.)

    Customer: “Fine, just make it.”

    (The barista does so.)

    Barista: “Should I close the lid or are you going to add cream?”

    Customer: “Why would you ask that?”

    Barista: “I wouldn’t want it to spill.”

    Customer: “Just give it to me.”

    (She pays and leaves, the barista is just shaking his head. I step up trying not to laugh and hand over my travel cup and cash.)

    Me: “What in the world was she actually trying to order?”

    Barista: “I don’t even know!”
