    Me: “Okay.”

    Customer: “Who are you?! Where’s my juice?!”

    Me: “Um…” *looks at customer, then back at the daughter* “Are you sure?”

    Customer’s Daughter: “Trust me, the vodka is the only thing that shuts her up.”

    (I bring them the vodka.)

    Customer: “Who are you!? My juice is funny!”

    Pause For (Lack Of) Thought

    , | Waukesha, WI, USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink

    Me: “Thank you for calling [Fast Food Restaurant]. How can I help you?”

    Caller: “Yea, I’m calling about the nuts you put in my son’s ice cream.”

    Me: “Um, sir, we don’t sell ice cream here.”

    Caller: “Yeah, you did. I came in last night.”

    Me: “Sir, this is [Fast Food Restaurant]. We don’t serve ice cream here.”

    Caller: “Yeah, you do. For 49 cents. And you put nuts in my son’s ice cream! I’d like to speak to your manager!”

    Me: “You’re speaking to her.”

    Caller: “Oh, and you said you don’t serve ice cream here?”

    Me: “No sir, we don’t. I think you needed the number for [other restaurant] across the street.”

    Caller: You own both the restaurants?

    Me: “No sir, we don’t. We’re just us.”

    Caller: *long pause* “So what kind of desserts do you sell there?”

    Me: “Cinnamon Twists.”

    Caller: “I hate those things. What else you got?”

    Me: “Cinnamon Twists. That’s it.”

    Caller: “I heard you say that! What else do you have?”

    Me: “That’s it.”

    Caller: *longer pause* “Well, can you concoct something for me if I came in?”

    Me: “No, sir, we can’t do that.”

    Caller: “Oh…”

    Me: “Was there anything else you needed help with?”

    Caller: “No. Just to clarify, you don’t sell ice cream?”

    Me: “That’s right.”

    Caller: *long pause* “You should probably hang up now.”

    Seeing The Sun In A Whole New Light

    | Tromsø, Norway |

    (Our city is in Northern Norway, above the arctic circle. A tourist comes in.)

    Tourist: “Sir, can you tell when the Midnight sun goes down?”

    Me: “Well it actually doesn’t, that the point. It’s up all night.”

    Tourist: “I see. Thanks.”

    (She leaves with an expression telling me that she really doesn’t. The following day she comes back looking annoyed.)

    Tourist: “You lied to me.”

    Me: “I’m sorry madam I don’t understand?”

    Tourist: “I was up all night, and there was no midnight sun. Just the normal one I can see all day!”
