    Let Me Give You A Pita My Mind

    , | Ontario, Canada | Food & Drink

    Me: “Hi, there. What could I get for you?”

    Customer: “Hi. Uh, do you guys sell slices?”

    Me: “No, this is a pita shop.”

    Customer: “So you don’t have pizza?”

    Me: “No.”

    Customer: “Well, what do you have?”

    Me: “Pitas. We’re a pita shop.”

    Customer: “Well, what’s a pita?”

    Me: “It’s like a wrap.”

    Customer: “That’s gross!”

    The Year Of Spending Dangerously

    (I’m at the computer putting an order in when I notice a guest at a table adjacent to me behaving oddly.)

    Customer: *cranes his head around frantically*

    Me: “Excuse me, sir, is there anything I can do for you? I noticed you looking around—”

    Customer: “Oh! Sorry. We were just playing ‘I Spy.’”

    Somebody Took An Evolutionary Detour

    | RestaurantUK | Food & Drink, Top

    (The waitress is trying to take our orders when a customer from the next table rudely interrupts.)

    Customer: *interrupting* “Is the fish suitable for vegetarians?”

    Waitress: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “The fish. Is it suitable for vegetarians?”

    Waitress: *very politely* “No, it’s meat.”

    Customer: “But it doesn’t say that there’s any meat. It says fish and chips and peas.”

    Waitress: “The fish is meat.”

    Customer: “No, it’s not. Only mammals have meat, like cows and chickens.”

    Me: “Chickens aren’t mammals.”

    Customer: “Of course they are; they have meat! Honestly, don’t you know how rude it is to interrupt somebody else’s conversation?!”

    Great, Ambiguous Expectations

    | Santa Barbara, CA, USA |

    (A customer orders an iced coffee. I get it for her. She has a puzzled and dismayed look on her face.)

    Me: “Is there a problem, ma’am?”

    Customer: “This…wasn’t what I was expecting.”

    Me: “Well, what were you expecting?”

    Customer: “I don’t know, but this wasn’t it.”
