October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

A Calculated Whisk

| Waukesha, WI, USA | Uncategorized

(A customer arrives to pick up the meal he ordered over the phone.)

Me: “So you would like to add to chocolate shakes to your phone in order?”

Customer: “Yes, please.”

(I crack out calculator to add the two orders and sales tax.)

Customer: “Typical! Teenagers can’t solve any problems without a calculator.”

Me: “Okay then, what’s your total?”

Customer: “I don’t know. Let me see the calculator.”

The Lights Are Off, But Sadly Someone’s Home

| Kentucky, USA | Uncategorized

Me: “Hi, thank you for calling [cell phone company]. How can I help you today?”

Customer: “Yeah, my phone is frozen and I can’t seem to get it do anything.”

Me: “Seems like we need to do a soft reset. Take off the back cover and look for a little hole that says reset next to it.”

Customer: “I don’t see it.”

Me: “Okay, follow the line down to it that’s next to the battery.”

Customer: “I still can’t find it.”

(After 25 minutes and several failed attempts at trying to find the reset button…)

Customer: “Oh, wait a minute…I think I know why. The lights are off in here.”

Me: “The…lights are off?”

Customer: “Give me a few moments and I’ll walk to the next room.”


| Baton Rouge, LA, USA | Uncategorized

Me: *on the drive-thru intercom* “Welcome to [coffee company]. What can I get for you today?”

Customer: “I need an ‘E’.”

(The customer immediately pulls away from the intercom.)

Me: “What the heck’s an ‘E’?”

Coworker: “Oh, that’s for [famous lawyer]. I don’t remember exactly what it is, but he always expects us to know it. He won’t explain it if you ask. Try a [incredibly complicated drink].”

(The customer refuses to make small talk, and we notice him dump his coffee out his car window as he drives away.)

Coworker: “We must not have got it right. He’ll try the location down the street next.”

The Customer Is Always Right (And Regular)

| Pennsylvania, USA | Uncategorized

Coworker: “Hello, how may I help you?”

Caller: “I just called and made an order for delivery, but please tell the driver to wait. I have to go have bowel movements.”

Coworker: “Um, sure thing, ma’am.”

(About 10 minutes go by…)

Me: “Hello, how may I help you?”

Same customer: “You can tell the driver he can bring my food to me now. I’m done with my bowel movements.”

Not Berry Bright

| Shelton, WA, USA | Uncategorized

(A customer walks up to my berry stand and motions at a pack of strawberries.)

Me: “Hello, sir. A pack is $11.”

Customer: *hands me a dollar bill*

Me: “Sorry, it’s $11 sir.”

Customer:*hands me another dollar and looks at me expectantly*

Me: “Well, I just need nine more of these.”

Customer:*hands me another dollar bill*

Me: “We’re getting there. Eight more.”

Customer: *looks at me, confused, then walks away*
