    1 Billion Served (And Eaten)

    , | Texas, USA | Uncategorized

    (I’ve just finished ringing up a customer’s order.)

    Customer: “Is it too late to make the drink and fries big?”

    Me: “Of course not, let me just charge it.”

    Customer, to my manager: “It should be free since she didn’t offer it to me! You should offer it to everyone equally!”

    Manager: “I’m sorry sir, she can’t give it to you for free. We’re all human. We all make mistakes.”

    Customer: “Well, fine! Next time I want to be helped by someone who isn’t human!”

    Customer: “My mother is taking some medication and it is making her sick. Can you stop giving it to her?”

    Me: “I’ll have to ask the pharmacist for you. What medication is it?”

    Customer: “It’s a little white pill.”

    Me: “You don’t know the name of it, sir? We do have many white pills in the pharmacy.”

    Customer: “I think it’s for her heart…or her brain.”

    (I’m a customer in the check out line. I’m buying a box of tampons for my mom, who is bedridden after surgery. One of the two customers standing behind me in line speaks up.)

    Other customer: “Ha-ha what a p****. He’s buying tampons.”

    (I ignore the two and move forwards to the cashier. She’s an attractive girl of about 20 years old.)

    Cashier: “$5.71 after the discount.”

    (I have no idea what discount she’s talking about, but I pay her and get my change.)

    Cashier: *with a smile on her face* “Here you go baby, I’m taking my break now and I’ll see you at home at 8. Just leave the tampons in my car, please.”

    (She leans over the counter and kisses me on the cheek. She then turns the light off on the register number and walks off towards the other side of the store. The two customers watched her with their jaws open and angrily walk off to another register.)

    Caller: “I’m trying to help my mother with a computer problem. Her internet keeps cutting out and just stops working without warning.”

    Me: “That’s unusual. Does the computer offer any error messages?”

    Caller: “No, that’s what’s really weird. The computer also just dies randomly.”

    Me: “The computer dies and the internet stops. Does anything else happen?”

    Caller: “She says the lights go out in this room.”

    Me: “Just that room?”

    Caller: “Yes.”

    Me: “Does she normally turn off the lights by using a wall switch?”

    Caller: “Yes, how did you know?”

    Me: “Is her computer plugged into something like a power bar, that is plugged into the same outlet as the light?”

    Caller: “Yes…oh. I’m an idiot, aren’t I?”

    The Lights Are Off, But Sadly Someone’s Home

    Fake On A Break

    | Wisconsin, USA | Uncategorized

    Me: “May I see some ID sir?”

    Customer: “Uh, yeah. Here.”

    (I take a look at the ID and am utterly speechless. It is by no means a bad fake, but the kid made one mistake when he ordered it. I motion over the bar manager, because I am utterly speechless. I hand him the fake.)

    Manager: *laughing* “Kid, your fake says you are 19!”

    (Everyone in line begins laughing, and the kid takes off. I notice at least three other people in line check the date on their licenses.)
