    Short Cake, Tall Order

    | Southlake, TX, USA | Food & Drink, Religion, Top

    Customer: “Excuse me?”

    Me: “Good afternoon, ma’am. How can I help you?”

    Customer: “I’d like a cake made. Can you make a cake in about 20 minutes?”

    Me: “Unfortunately, we have no available decorators at this time. I can certainly take an order for tomorrow morning, however.”

    Customer: “No! That’s unacceptable! I refuse to be treated differently just because I’m Jewish!”

    Me: “I’m also a Jew, but the issue is that I don’t have the proper training to make a cake for you at this time. I can place an order for you, but can do little more than that.”

    Customer: “No, forget it. I refuse to be discriminated like this! I’m leaving!”

    Me: “Have a nice day, and happy Hanukkah!”

    Customer: “What the h*** is Hanukkah?!”

    Should Have Gone For (M)Academia

    | California, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    Customer: “What’s in the White Chocolate Macadamia cookie?”

    Me: “White chocolate and macadamias.”

    Customer: “Oh, duh,. That was a stupid question.”

    Me: “It’s okay, people ask me all the time what kind of nuts are in the ‘Chocolate Almond Joy’.”

    Customer: “Oh yeah, ha ha! Walnuts!”

    It’s Not Just The Bread That’s Thick

    | Madison, WI, USA | Food & Drink

    Customer: “How thick do you slice my bread?”

    Me: “It depends how thick you’d like it. We have both a thin and thick slicer.” *gestures to show each thickness*

    Customer: “Are you sure that’s as thick as you slice the bread? Show me a thick slice. Maybe you got it wrong.”

    Me: “Okay, one moment.” *gets a thick slice of bread*

    Customer: “That’s it? THAT’S your thick slice? You didn’t grab the thin by mistake?”

    Me: “No, sir, I made sure to get a thick slice. I don’t have to slice it if you’d rather do it yourself.”

    Customer: “No! I shouldn’t have to slice it myself to make it filling! You should change your bread. I’m used to good, thick European bread. You shouldn’t even be called a bakery, you don’t make real bread!”

    Me: “Sorry, I don’t actually make the bread. I just sell it.”

    Customer: “Oh, and I suppose you didn’t name the company either?”

    Me: “No, I didn’t.”

    Customer: “DON’T GET SMART WITH ME!”

    The Custom-fur Is Always Right

    | Sydney, Australia |

    Customer: “Hi, I’d like to buy a lemon and lime pie please.”

    Me: “I’m sorry miss, we don’t sell those. We never have.”

    Customer: “But I was so sure. Let me just check.” *pulls out phone and dials* “Hi, darling…yes, I know, but she says they don’t sell them anymore. Okay, I’ll put you on…”

    Customer: “He’d like to talk to you.” *hands me the phone*

    Me: “Hi, sir, I’m sorry, but we don’t sell lemon and lime pies.”

    Phone: “Woof! Woof! Woof!”

    Customer, to me: “You see?!”

    The Cake Is A Lie

    | Lexington, KY, USA |

    Me: “Okay, would you like the cake to say anything?”

    Customer: “Like what?”

    Me: “Happy Birthday? Happy Tenth Birthday?”

    Customer: “Oh! Well, if you could teach it to sing ‘Happy Birthday,’ that would be great!”

    (I think the customer is joking, so I write “Happy Birthday” on the cake as usual. Later on, the customer calls in complaining that his cake didn’t sing when the candles were lit!)
