Would You Like Brains With That

, | England, UK | Food & Drink

(Our store usually sells side orders with several meals: three hot and one cold. One night, both of our microwaves have broken so we can only offer coleslaw.)

Me: “Unfortunately all our hot sides are gone today. I’m afraid I can only offer you coleslaw or extra fries as options.”

Customer: “Can I swap the coleslaw for a gravy?”

Me: “I’m afraid not; all our hot sides are unavailable. Are you okay with coleslaw or extra fries?”

Customer: “Oh, no hot sides…can I have beans, then?”

Me: “No. Sorry, as I mentioned you can only choose from coleslaw or extra fries. So, which would you like?”

Customer: “I don’t really like coleslaw or fries…can I have a corn instead?”

Me: “Um, no, you can’t. As I’ve already explained, we don’t have any hot side orders: just coleslaw or extra fries today. I’m sorry about that.”

Customer: “Well, you should have said something, then!”

Messy Customers


Serving Your Pie And Eating It Too

| Ohio, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink, Top

(Three teenagers come into the restaurant where I work.)

Teenage Girl #1: “Okay, so we’ll have three large fountain drinks, six orders of fries, three cookies, and one large pepperoni pizza with stuffed crust.”

Me: “Okay, that’ll be [amount].”

(They pay and sit down at a table together with their order. Much to my surprise, Teenage Girl #2 and Teenage Boy get out their own packed lunches and put them in the middle of table to share. They all eat, everyone having a bit of everything. As I sit down at a nearby table for my break, I overhear them talking.)

Teenage Girl #2: “Okay, so maybe ordering a large pizza WASN’T the greatest idea.”

Teenage Boy: “It was the extra fries that did it for me.’

Teenage Girl #1: “So what do we do with the extra pizza?

Teenage Girl #2: “The box is too big for us to lug it around.”

Teenage Boy: “Well, crap. We just wasted some money.”

Teenage Girl #2: “Wait, I have an idea!”

(She gets up, takes the box, and walks over to me while her friends watch on in confusion.)

Teenage Girl #2: “Do you like pepperoni pizza?”

Me: “Um, yeah?”

(Without another word, she drops the box in front of me and walks away. She and her friends leave the restaurant before I get a chance to say thank you. For the record, the pizza was delicious!)

How About A Chia Pet Instead, Part 2

| Louisiana, USA | Pets & Animals

(I am bagging some fish for a customer who is setting up a new tank.)

Me: “Alright, here are your fish. If you’d like to follow me, I can show you where the fish food is.”

Customer: “Fish food? You mean I have to feed them?”

Me: “Well, yes, unless you want them to die.”

Customer: “But I don’t have time to feed any pets. Don’t you have an animal I don’t have to feed?”

The Customer’s New Clothes

| AZ, USA | Uncategorized

(I overhear a conversation between a customer and his wife as they are browsing around.)

Wife: “So, do you see anything you like?”

Husband: “No, not really.”

Wife: “Nothing? Why not?”

Husband: “Because I don’t wear clothes!”
