    Line Is Law

    | British Columbia, Canada | Food & Drink

    (I am working in a buffet-style restaurant where customers line up for the food.)

    Supervisor: “Can you go refill the napkins? We’re all out.”

    Me: “Sure.”

    (I walk over to the line wearing my work uniform and my ID card prominently displayed.)

    Me: “Excuse me, I just need to refill the napkins.”

    Customer: “No problem.”

    Customer #2: “Why the f*** does everyone keep cutting the line?”

    Me: “Sir, I work here. I am just refilling the napkins.”

    Customer #2: “Well, that is no excuse! If you work here, you should know to wait your turn!”

    Did I Steal That Out Loud

    | Bethesda, Maryland, USA | Underaged

    (Two boys around the age of 15 walk in without an adult. They order food that the average teenager cannot pay for. After they’re done eating, I come with the bill.)

    Me: “Here is the bill.”

    (They look at it. The total is about $107.)

    Boy: “That’s a lot of cash. Let’s run!”

    Me: “You better not, sir.”

    Boy: “How’d you hear us? We were using telepathy!”

    The Short, Rainbow-Colored Bridge From Injured Pride To Pride Parades

    , | Minnesota, USA | Uncategorized

    (A customer and his son approach the counter. Note that the son is no more than 11 or 12 years-old.)

    Customer: “Hey, my son has something to ask you.”

    Me: “Yes?”

    Customer’s son: “Will you wanna go out with me?”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “Come on, it’s his first time asking a girl out! If you turn him down, he might get discouraged and go gay. You don’t want to turn him gay, do you?!”

    Little Bite-Sized Lies

    , | Winnipeg, MB, Canada | Uncategorized

    (It’s 11:30 pm and the fast food restaurant I work at has already closed at 11:00 pm. I am standing at the counter finishing the cashout when a customer walks in.)

    Customer: “Hi, give me a teen burger combo.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but we’re closed now. The restaurant was only open until eleven.”

    Customer: *ignores me* “I’d like onion rings instead of fries.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I can’t make you any food right now. Everything is off and we are closed.”

    Customer: “What? That’s f***ing ridiculous! My daughter is in the hospital and I need to get something to eat!”

    Me: “I’m sorry about that, ma’am, but I can’t re-open the store for you.”

    Customer: “That’s bulls**t! What the f*** am I supposed to do now?!”

    Me: “Well, I believe there’s a another fast food restaurant just down the street that’s open 24 hours–”

    Customer: “No! No! Don’t f***ing tell me to go there! My nephew is in the hospital and I am not going to bring him food from another f***ing restaurant!”

    Me: “Ma’am, I thought it was your daughter in the hospital.”

    (The customer freezes for a moment before realizing her mistake.)

    Customer: “F*** you!” *leaves*

    May Cause Belief In Humanity To Melt Away, Part 2

    , | Dallas, TX, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (A lady orders an ice cream cone from our drive-thru window. After getting her ice cream, she comes back about 5 minutes later. Keep in mind it’s a sweltering hot day.)

    Me: “Hi, was there something else I can help you with?”

    Customer: *angrily* “I think there’s something wrong with your ice cream machine!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t believe there is. What’s wrong?”

    Customer: “My ice cream has melted!”

    Me: “Could it be because it’s 105 degrees outside?”

    Customer: *leaves in a huff*
