…And The Baristas Shall Inherit The Earth

| El Paso, TX, USA | Uncategorized

Me: Good morning, what can I get for you?

Customer: “Did you go to church today?”

Me: “No.”

Customer: “Why not?! It’s Sunday and you should be giving thanks to the Lord! I don’t like this… let me speak to your manager NOW.”

Me: “Ma’am, this isn’t a Christian establishment where we are required to go to church.”

Customer: “Get your manager!”

Manager: “Yes, ma’am?”

Customer: “Why don’t your employees go to church on Sunday?! This is an outrage.”

Manager: “Well, if we did there would be no one here to make your delicious coffee when you get out of church.”

Customer: “Well, I guess that’s okay. I’ll let Jesus know that you guys are helping me so that you don’t go to Hell.”

(A very angry customer brings a small bag of instant coffee to the counter.)

Customer: “HOW DARE YOU STOCK THIS?!”

Me: “Um, I’m sorry… can I help you, sir?”

Customer: “This is Australia! How dare you support some French s*** in our country?!”

Me: “Excuse me, sir?”

Customer: “THIS!” *holds the bag out* “See! Right here: ‘Proudly Supporting Jun’ar Ne’ball In Australia.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but it actually says, “Proudly supporting Junior Netball in Australia.”

Around The World In 80 Epithets

Me: “Good morning, ma’am. What can I get for you today?”

Customer: “Well hello dearie, what kind of mild coffee do you have today?”

Me: “Our light roast today is our Guatemala.”

Customer: “Oh no. I don’t want coffee made by [racial epithet].”

Me: “Um… well, our dark roast is our Ethiopian.

Customer: “I don’t want [another racial epithet] coffee either! Can’t you get me some American coffee?

Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, coffee beans don’t grow anywhere in America except Hawaii. And we don’t carry any Kona.”

Customer: “Damn [yet another racial epithet]! Don’t want any of their coffee either. I just want some good old American coffee. That’s what I got last time.”

Me: “I’m sorry. Like I said, we don’t carry any coffee grown in America. Coffee doesn’t grow in the continental United States.”

Customer: “God d*** commies!” *storms off*

The Epiphany To End All Epiphanies

| San Jose, CA, USA | Uncategorized

(A customer orders an iced drink.  They usually come out with flat lids, but we were completely out and were forced to use the dome ones instead.)

Customer: “Why does this have a round lid on it? I want my drink with a flat lid instead.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but we’re completely out of flat lids today.”

Customer: “But I want my round lid!”

Me: “I promise you, it will taste exactly the same.”

Customer: “Ooohhh…”

Behind Every Policy Is A Stupid Customer

| Rockville, MD, USA | Uncategorized

Customer: “I don’t want a lid.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but it’s company policy. I have to serve your hot beverage with a lid on.”

Customer: “This is stupid.”

Me: “We don’t want you to burn yourself–”

Customer: “Then I’ll just blame you.”

Me: “… and that would be why we have the company policy.”
