1 Billion Served (And Eaten)

, | Texas, USA |

(I’ve just finished ringing up a customer’s order.)

Customer: “Is it too late to make the drink and fries big?”

Me: “Of course not, let me just charge it.”

Customer, to my manager: “It should be free since she didn’t offer it to me! You should offer it to everyone equally!”

Manager: “I’m sorry sir, she can’t give it to you for free. We’re all human. We all make mistakes.”

Customer: “Well, fine! Next time I want to be helped by someone who isn’t human!”

Minor Dramas Are Major For Minors

, | Indianapolis, IN, USA |

(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!”

Fowl Behavior, Part 3

, | Kelmscott, WA, USA |

Me: “Hello, sir, can I take your order?”

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.”

A Calculated Whisk

Me: “So you would like to add to chocolate shakes to your phone in order?”

Customer: “Yes, please.”

(I crack out calculator to add the two orders and sales tax.)

Customer: “Typical! Teenagers can’t solve any problems without a calculator.”

Me: “Okay then, what’s your total?”

Customer: “I don’t know. Let me see the calculator.”
