If The Brew Fits…

| California, USA | Uncategorized

(We’ve run out of flat lids for our large cold drinks, so we’re using the domed ones instead.)

Coworker: “I have a large iced green tea ready.”

Customer: “Does it LOOK like I want whipped cream on that!?”

Coworker: “I’m really sorry, ma’am, but unfortunately we are all out of the flat lids for the venti sized drinks. I have to put a dome lid–”

(The customer points to small-sized flat lids.)

Customer: “Those are flat lids!”

Coworker: “Actually, those only fit our small iced cups.”

(The customer rolls her eyes, grabs a small flat lid, and tries to put it on her large cup. Because it’s smaller, the lid falls into her drink and spills tea all over the counter.)

Customer: “WHY WON’T THIS FIT!?”

(At the theme park where I work, a teenage guest gets out of line and marches up to me at my spot greeting people.)

Guest: “There are two birds back there fighting in the bushes. You should go stop them.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but we don’t really have any control over nature.”

Guest: “But they’re fighting. One of them could get hurt.”

Me: “I’m sure they’ll sort it out soon and fly off.”

Other guest: “Those birds aren’t fighting…they’re ‘dating’.”

(The guest thinks about it for a moment.)

Guest: “What?! And you’re just going to let them do it in front of everyone? This is a FAMILY park. Oh my God!”

(While working at a well-known clothing store, a customer walks up to my cash register empty handed.)

Me: “Did you find everything you needed today?”

Customer: “I’ve been in here for fifteen minutes and nobody gave me a table yet.”

Me: “…What?”

Customer: “Yeah. I’ve been here for fifteen minutes and nobody sat me down.”

Me: “We have a couch over by the fitting rooms if you’d like to have a seat.”

Customer: “You don’t have any tables? What about booths?”

Me: “Um…we don’t have anything like that here.”

Customer: “Is this a new type of restaurant or something?”

Me: “No, this is a clothing store; we sell clothes. That’s why we have lots of clothing here and no kitchen.”

Customer: “Oh…why didn’t anybody tell me?”

Me: “Did you ask someone?”

Customer: “No!” *storms out of the store*
