    Original Story

    Finger Lickin’ Good Parenting

    , | Windsor, CA, USA |

    (A man walks up to our hot case with his wife and two little girls.)

    Me: “Hi! How may I help you?”

    Customer: “Hi – we wanted to get some chicken strips.”

    (As I am taking his order, I notice his daughters licking the hot case glass.)

    Me: “Excuse me sir, but your daughters are licking the glass.”

    Customer: “Yeah.”

    Me: “Well…aside from the fact that the glass is hot, we cleaned it this morning with a chemical cleaner to wash off a layer of grease build-up.”

    Customer: “So?”

    Me: “The chemical we used is a known carcinogen. I might suggest that you stop your daughters from ingesting it.”

    Customer: “Look, lady. You’ve obviously never been a parent. When you have kids, you’ll learn that it’s MUCH easier to just let your kids do whatever they want.”

    It Was Only A Suggestion

    , | Norcross, GA, USA |

    Me: “All right sir, here’s your meal.”

    Customer: “Thanks a lot!”

    Me: “Have a nice day.”

    Customer: *serious* “Don’t tell me what to do!”

    Land That I Love

    | Seattle, WA, USA |

    (I received this call from a customer requesting web site support.)

    Customer: “I want to order from you, but it says that my state is ‘Invalid’!”

    Me: “What state are you putting in?”

    Customer: “‘The Great State Of Texas’!”

    Me: “Are you putting that whole phrase in the box?”

    Customer: “Well, it ran out of room after the ‘t’ and the ‘h’.”

    Me: “When you put in the state on our site, you need to use the 2-letter state code set up by the United States Post Office.”

    Customer: “What do you mean by that?”

    Me: “The United States Post Office has a code for each state and territory of the United States. Texas would be ‘TX’.”

    Customer: “WHAT?! HOW ARE THEY GOING TO KNOW TO SEND IT TO THE GREAT STATE OF TEXAS IF IT ONLY SAYS ‘TX’?! MY ORDER WOULD BE LOST!”

    Me: “Actually, I’m pretty sure that the United States Post Office would know that ‘TX’ is ‘The Great State Of Texas’….”

    Customer: *types it in* “Oh, look at that – it worked. Can you hold on for a second? I want to call the Post Master of our town and confirm this….”
