    (The customer rips the lid off of the shake I just hand her and frowns.)

    Customer: “What is this?”

    Me: “That’s a vanilla shake.”

    Customer: “No it isn’t. I want a vanilla shake.”

    Me: “Well, I made it myself so I promise you it’s vanilla. Would you like me to remake it?”

    Customer: “No, I just want a vanilla shake! This doesn’t look like vanilla at all. It’s all yellow.”

    Me: “Ah, the vanilla syrup gives the shake a yellow tinge. It’s
    supposed to look like that.”

    Customer: “Oh, it’s not ME you have to convince, it’s the seven year-old in the car. He won’t be happy!”

    Customer: “Uh, yeah…can I have two whole roast chickens?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but we are all out at the moment. If you come back in 30 minutes, there will be some chickens available”

    Customer: “But what about those chickens over there?” *points at plastic display chickens*

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but those are display chickens. They are not real.”

    Customer: *raises voice* “I reckon those chickens are real and you’re just trying to keep them for yourself!”

    (The customer stabs the chicken with a plastic knife from our tray. A chunk of polystyrene is taken out.)

    Customer: “Oh, I guess you were telling the truth. I’ll come back in half an hour.”

    Customer: “When the h*** did this happen?”

    Me: “Two years ago, ma’am.”

    Customer: “I was in here last week and paid with a $100 bill.”

    Me: “Ma’am, our register wouldn’t allow us to enter $100 bills. Do you happen to have a credit card?”

    Customer: “What’s your name! I want to speak with your manager!”

    Manager: “What’s the problem?”

    Customer: “Your staff is lying by telling me he cannot accept a $50 bill. I was in here last week and paid with a $100 bill!”

    Manager: “I was on register all last week, ma’am, and I would have told you the same thing. It’s against our policy to accept bills $50 or larger.”

    Customer: “FINE!” *rips the bill in half* “HOW ABOUT NOW?”
