    Taxing Faxing, Part 7

    | Sydney, Australia | Food & Drink

    Me: “Hi, [Cake Shop], how may I help you?”

    Caller: “Yeah hi, do you have cake boxes?”

    Me: “Like the ones we put the sold cakes into?”

    Caller: “Yeah, but do you have just plain coloured ones?”

    Me: “No, sorry, we only have ones with the company’s logo on it.”

    Caller: “Well, can you order one? I told my friend that I got a special cake shop to make the cake, but I made it, and all I need is a plain box.”

    Me: “Sorry, we can’t do that.”

    Caller: “Okay then, I’ll just get the one with a logo. Can you mail it?”

    Me: “No, that’s not store policy. Customers have to collect it themselves.”

    Caller: “Well, then just fax it to me.” *tells me his number – and before I can respond* “Thank you!” *hangs up*

    Sinfully Delicious

    | Savannah, GA, USA | Food & Drink, Religion

    (This bakery is a vintage style, family owned bakery with custom names for each product.)

    Customer: "As a man of the cloth, I know this is a weird order. But could I get a Hazel Feelgood and a Drunk Blondie?"

    Loathe Of Bread

    | Sydney, Australia | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

    (I work at a bakery that cuts bread with a machine.)

    Me: “Okay, sir, would you like me to cut your bread for you?”

    Customer: “How?”

    Me: “This machine here will cut it.”

    Customer: “You use a machine rather then cutting it by hand?!”

    Me: “Yes sir, it is quicker and gets the job done well.”

    Customer: *at this point he is getting furious* “This is outrageous! You use a machine to do a mans job! You are putting people out of their jobs! You are ruining the natural process of man and the cutting of bread.”

    Me: “I’m sorry sir, I didn’t realize. Would you like me to cut your bread by hand?”

    Customer: “No, use the machine! I’m in a big rush to get to my sister’s place. It’s her birthday, you know.”

    Gluten-Free Is Not A Cure For Gluttony

    | Chicago, IL, USA | Food & Drink

    (I work in a bakery where all the products are gluten free.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, what are these things that look like chocolate chip cookies?”

    Me: “They’re chocolate chip cookies, sir.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay. And what are these things that look like éclairs?”

    Me: “They’re éclairs.”

    Customer: “And these things that look like fruit tarts?”

    Me: “They’re fruit tarts.”

    *pause*

    Customer: “So what the h*** does ‘gluten-free’ mean?”

    Without A Cake The Birthday Boy Will Be In Tiers

    | Los Angeles, CA, USA | Family & Kids, Food & Drink

    Me: “Oh, hi. Welcome to [Bakery]. What can I do for you today?”

    Customer: “I’d like to order a 3 tiered cake for my son’s birthday party.”

    Me: “Sure, no problem. We have a design book on that table behind you where you could look at some possible designs.”

    Customer: “Okay. How long would it take you to make the cake?”

    Me: “Well it depends. If you get a simple design you might be able to pick it up by tomorrow afternoon, but if you get a more complicated design it make take 3 to 4 days.”

    Customer: “Oh. That’s not gonna work for me.”

    Me: “Why? What’s the problem?”

    (The customer’s son runs inside the bakery.)

    Customer’s son: “Dad, come on! The party starts in an hour!”
