    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.”

    Kill The Bill, Double The Trouble

    , | Ohio, USA |

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but we cannot accept $50 bills. It’s against our security policy.”

    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?”

    When Stupidity Hits The Pint Of No Return

    | New York, NY, USA |

    Customer: “I see you changed your sizes?”

    Me: “Yeah, we had to change it from pint and quart because too many people were asking which was bigger. Now we’ve got large and small.”

    Customer: “They can’t tell by the price?”

    Me: “Maybe they aren’t stressing it in schools anymore.”

    (A second customer walks in and looks at a menu for a second.)

    Customer: “But that is sad, kids don’t know which is bigger.”

    Customer #2: “What’s bigger?”

    Me: “Pint or a quart.”

    Customer #2: “That’s pathetic.”

    (A few moments of silence pass.)

    Customer #2: “So, which is bigger, the large or the small?”

    Doesn’t Know Their A(merican)B(orn)C(hinese)’s

    | Greenville, SC, USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling [Chinese restaurant], how can I help you?”

    Customer: “Yes, I’d like an order for delivery.”

    Me: “Okay, if you’ll just give me your-”

    Customer: *cutting me off* “Is this a real Chinese restaurant?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am.”

    Customer: “I’ve just never heard any one talk like you at a Chinese restaurant. I’m just making sure Americans aren’t cooking my Chinese food!”

    How About Some Dessert Instead

    | Ireland |

    (I have a table of four foreign business-men. One of them looks very sad.)

    Sad customer: “And also, you bring me tea because this country is very cold and I am sick.”

    Me: “I’m sorry you’re not well. Of course I’ll bring you some tea.”

    Sad customer: “…and then you marry me, because no-one will marry me.”
