Me: “Hi welcome to [ice cream shop], how can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, I would like to order that new Thin Mint Blizzard.”

Me: “Alright, what size?”

Customer: “Small.”

Me: “Can I get you anything else?”

Customer: “I don’t want it green.”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “It’s green in this picture! I want it white! Whatever you put in there to make it green, I don’t want it.”

Me: “That would be our mint topping.”

Customer: “Mint? Ewww! No.”

Me: “So that’s one Thin MINT Cookie Blizzard with no MINT topping?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Customer: “Oh, look at all this yummy gelato!”

Me: “Yes ma’am, the front row is gelato and the back row is ice cream.”

Customer: “Okay, I want butter pecan.”

(Butter pecan is in the back row, so it’s an ice cream. I scoop it for her.)

Customer: “Well, this is just delicious. Do you have any regular ice cream and not gelato?”

Me: “Yes ma’am. Like I said before, the back row is ice cream.”

Customer: *stops eating suddenly* “What? But I wanted gelato!”

Me: “Ma’am, I told you which ones were the gelatos. I can get you something else.”

Customer: “But, but, but I wanted gelato!”

Customer’s husband: “Quit your b****in’, I’ll eat it at home.”

(A customer orders a sundae in a small banana boat. It’s two mounds of ice cream with hot fudge, pecans, whip cream, and a cherry.)

Me: “Can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, I’d like the hot fudge pecan royale. Can you make it with twist ice cream?”

Me: “Yes. ”

Customer: “That comes with whip cream, right?”

Me: “Yes it does.”

Customer: “Good. I don’t want a cherry though, they’re fattening.”

Me: “…”

(At the shop, all the flavors of gelato are plainly labeled. This particular question happened almost daily…)

Customer: “What does the Rose taste like?”

Me: “Roses.”

Customer: “No way! Let me try!”

(I hand the customer a sampler of rose-flavored gelato.)

Customer: “It tastes like lotion!”

Me: “How often do you eat lotion?!”

(I used to work at a popular ice cream store, where they mix your ice cream. We got really busy during the weekends, with lines out the door. This happened as I was going down the line asking customers for their order.)

Me: “Hello, what would you like today?”

Customer: “Are you high?”

Me: “Uh…what?”

Customer: “Your eyes are REALLY red. That’s okay, I’m cool with it…I am sure it makes this job more fun.” *grins*

Me: “Um, I’m not high. I have contacts and they make my eyes really red.”

Customer: “Oh, gotcha.” *winks*

(At this point, I am hoping I dont lose my job for something this stupid.)

Me: “So what can I get you?”

Customer: “Nothing, I am just looking.”

Lady next to customer: “I know you are not high dear, don’t panic.” *gives me a tip*
