(We have a regular who comes in for special sandwiches that are made on Mondays and Fridays only. When she comes in, it’s on a Thursday and the guy who makes them at the deli isn’t there. Instead, it’s a new guy who’s still being trained.)
Customer: “Black and blue with horse sauce on the side.”
(FYI, she wants pumpernickel bread with roast beef, bleu cheese and horseradish sauce on the side.)
New Employee: “Uh, sorry? I don’t know what that is.”
Customer: *annoyed* “I want the black and blue with the horse sauce on the side.
New Employee: “Let me get someone else. I’m new, so I don’t know what that is.”
Customer: “God, are you stupid? I want the black and blue with horse sauce on the side! Is that so freaking hard to understand?
Other Employee: *overhears* “Yes, ma’am, I’ll get that made for you right now. He’s new, so he doesn’t know about our sandwich specialties.”
(Upon hearing this, the customer suddenly turns sweet and smiles.)
Customer: “OH! You’re new? How many days have you been working here?”
New Employee: “Only two days, ma’am.”
Customer: “Well, watch out for those crazies. You’re bound to get a few!”
