    Size Matters, Part 6

    | San Francisco, CA, USA | Food & Drink, Top

    (A lady and her daughter walk in.)

    Me: “Hi, how may I help you?”

    Daughter: “Can I have the waffle cone with a scoop of coconut ice cream?”

    Me: “Yeah, sure. Here you go.” *hands over ice cream*

    Customer: “What sizes do you have for snow cones?”

    Me: “I have a $2 cup and a $2.50 cup.” *shows her sizes*

    Customer: “Do you have a $1.50 cup?”

    Me: “No, I have $2 and $2.50.”

    Customer: “Okay, I’ll have one exactly like my daughter’s.”

    Me: “A $2 coconut waffle cone?”

    Customer: “No, I want it in a cup…and make it strawberry.”

    Me: “So, not exactly like hers.”

    Customer: “No, I guess not. Wait…never mind. I’ll have a small snow cone.”

    Me: “Okay, what flavor?”

    Customer: “I’ll have the strawberry.”

    Me: “Okay. There you go.” *hands over the small strawberry snow cone*

    Customer: “Oh, you made it small? When I said small, I meant big! I thought you would understand.”

    Me: “No. You said small, so I gave you small.”

    Customer: “Well, I wanted the large one, but it’s okay. It was your mistake.”

    Putting A Lid On That Temper

    | Texas, USA | Food & Drink

    Me: “Hi, how are you doing today?”

    Customer: “Hey, you. Um…you got any corn dogs?”

    Me: “I’m sorry we don’t.”

    Customer: “Okay, do you have any pistachio ice cream?”

    (We’re standing right at the ice cream bar and have all the selections on display.)

    Me: “No, sir, we don’t. I’m sorry.”

    Customer: “Son of a b****! Well, do you at least have a large chocolate shake?! You have that, right?!”

    Me: “Yes, sir. Let me make that for you.”

    (I head to do this while my coworker takes the rest of his order, which is a triple dip ice cream in a cup. I come back to ring him up and notice that he’s not happy.)

    Me: “All right, that will be [price].”

    Customer: “I wanted that to go!” *points at the ice cream in the cup*

    Me: “Yes, sir, it’s in a cup. You can take it to go.”

    Customer: “You’re telling me that you’d drive with that in your car without a lid?! How stupid are you?!”

    Me: “Yes, sir, I would. I can get you a lid if you want.”

    Customer: “Well what did you think I meant by to go?!”

    Me: “Yes, sir.”

    (I get him a lid and force the ice cream to fit.)

    Customer: “Well, I hope you learned something from this!” *storms off*

    Blue Gives Me The Blues

    | New Jersey, USA |

    Customer: “What’s in the Cookie Monster?”

    Me: “It is a blue cookie dough ice cream with Oreos in it.”

    Customer: “Can you take the blue out?”

    Me: “No, we use a blue dye when we make the ice cream. It has no flavor.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay. I’ll get a different flavor because I don’t like the taste of blue.”
