    Please Insert Coffee To Continue

    (While working at the drive-thru, a customer puts in a lengthy order. Before I can tell him the price, he peels out, driving up to the window.)

    Me: “That will be $21.54, please…” *I take his money* “May I please ask that you pull up just a bit? We’ll have someone run your order out to you as soon as it’s done.”

    Customer: *blank stare*

    Me: “Sir, can you please pull forward?”

    Customer: “I don’t have my order yet.”

    Me: “Sir, you had a large order. We’re going to get it for you, but some of what you asked for takes time. We’ll bring it to you. But we need to keep the line moving too.”

    Customer: *no response*

    Me: “Sir?”

    Customer: “Yes?”

    Me: “Can you please drive up?”

    Customer: “But I don’t have my order…”

    (I try to hand him the first tray of drinks, but he ignores them. Same thing goes for the sandwiches. In a last ditch effort, I hand him his coffee. He accepts the coffee but immediately drives off, leaving $18.46 in change, 4 sandwiches, and 3 frozen drinks. He never returned for the rest of his order.)

    It’s Going To Be A Long Day

    Me: “What type of internet do you have?”

    Customer: “Internet Explorer.”

    Me: “No, sorry, I meant what type of internet, like your ISP?”

    Customer: “Internet.”

    Me: “No, what type.”

    Customer: “Uh…modem?”

    Me: “What kind of modem?”

    Customer: “Black.”

    Me: “Is it plugged into a phone cable or a coaxial cable? Like a cable you’d plug into your TV.”

    Customer: “It’s plugged in to…the wall.”

    Not To La-boar The Point

    Me: “Hello, welcome to [store]. What would you like, sir?”

    Customer: “Actually, I have a question. What is ham made of?”

    Me: “It’s made of pigs.”

    Customer: “Pigs? What are pigs made of?”

    Me: “Pigs, the animal.”

    Customer: *confused look*

    Me: “Oink oink.”

    Customer: “Oh! Does that mean it’s not vegan?”

    Customer: “Hello. I bought this phone from you and I accidentally got some orange juice on it.”

    Me: “Okay, well if it didn’t get too much on it, it might be okay. Is it turning on?”

    Customer: “No.”

    (I take the phone and it has a lot of moisture damage.)

    Me: “It looks like there’s quite a lot of juice on this.”

    Customer: “Oh that’s not juice. I ran it under the tap to get the juice off!”

    This. Is. High Bar-ta.

    (I coach an Advanced Recreational group of kids aged 11-14. I’m spotting one of the boys on the high bar when his arm slips and he elbows me in the face.)

    Me: “Thanks. Please try not to do that again.”

    Child: “Sorry!” *laughs*

    (He tries it again, and elbows me in the face again. This time, my lip is bleeding so I go over to the door to spit the blood out of my mouth into the garbage. As I’m doing this, one of the dads that is watching from the lobby runs in.)

    Dad: “That was freakin’ amazing!”

    Me: “What was?”

    Dad: “From the lobby, it looked like he elbowed you in the face, you thanked him and asked him for another. Then you came and spat your blood into the garbage as a show of dominance over the rest of them. FRICKIN’ AWESOME!” *high fives me*
