    For Some, Childhood Never Ends

    , | Glen Burnie, MD, USA | Food & Drink

    (While waiting for my order inside a fast food restaurant, I overhear this conversation between the employee working the drive-thru window and the customer at the speaker.)

    Employee: “Welcome to [restaurant]. How may I help you?”

    Customer: “I need a hamburger kids’ meal. Also, could you put cheese on that?”

    Employee: “Okay, so you want a cheeseburger kids’ meal?”

    Customer: “No, just a hamburger with cheese on it.”

    Employee: “Ma’am, if you put cheese on a hamburger, it becomes a cheeseburger. So, do you want a hamburger or a cheeseburger?”

    Customer: “Well, then, I guess I want a cheeseburger.”

    Employee: “Okay, and is this kids’ meal for a boy or a girl?”

    Customer: “Does it matter?”

    Employee: “Not to me, ma’am.”

    (The customer leaves the drive-thru as I leave the restaurant parking lot and she ends up behind me at a red light, happily eating her happy meal while driving.)

    Too Many Nuggets Rots Your Brain

    , | PA, USA |

    Customer: “Do you still have the fifty piece nuggets?”

    Me: “No, I’m sorry. It was a limited time product, but we still have the twenty piece.”

    Customer: “Okay, I need a minute to figure out what I want.”

    Me: “No problem. Just let me know when you’re ready.”

    *long silence*

    Customer: “Okay, that’ll be all.”

    Me: “I’m sorry?”

    Customer: “Oh, I think I forgot to order!”

    If It Looks Like A Cow And Moos Like A Cow

    , | Wisconsin, USA | Food & Drink, Pets & Animals

    (Due to difficulties returning from a petting zoo, my mother and I had a 3 month old calf riding in the front seat of our truck. We were hungry so we went thru a drive thru on our way home. After we ordered we drove up to the first window.)

    Cashier #1: “Your total is [total]. Is that a real cow?”

    Mom: “Why, yes, she is.”

    (The cashier gives my mom the change and points the animal out to her coworkers around her. We drive up to the second window.)

    Cashier #2: “Here’s your order. Is that cow real?”

    Cow: “Mooooo!”

    Mom: “As you can see, she is real and really hungry, so thank you for the hamburgers. She will really enjoy them.”

    Big Ol’ Bag Of Bagel-y Biggle Bits

    , | Sacramento, CA, USA | Food & Drink

    (I work at a pretzel place in a mall. On the posters, menu, and signs hanging in our store and outside of it, the bite-sized pieces of pretzels are called “pretzel bites”. It says that everywhere because they’re our most popular product.)

    Me: “Hi, welcome to [store]. What can I get for you today?”

    Customer: “Can I get some of your pretzel nubbins?”

    Me: “Ex-Excuse me?”

    Customer: “The nubbins. The little bits. The pretzel bagels.”

    Me: “Do…do you mean pretzel bites?”

    Customer: “Yeah, the bagel bites, or the pretzel nuggets. With salt.”

    Me: “So you want a big ol’ bag of bagel-y biggle bits, huh?”

    Customer: *offended* “Excuse you?”

    Me: “Small, medium, or large pretzel nubbins, ma’am?”

    , | CA, USA |

    (I am taking orders on a headset while also taking money at the window. A customer drives up to my speaker.)

    Me: “Hi, welcome to [restaurant]. What can I get for you today?”

    Customer: “No hablo inglés!”

    Me: “Un momento…”

    (I take the money from the customer at the window, planning to get a Spanish speaking manager as soon as I can. After a few minutes…)

    Customer: “Okay, fine! I speak English!”
