October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

UV: Under Valued

| San Diego, CA, USA | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink, Uncategorized

(It is mid-afternoon and the sun is starting to directly shine in the windows. The shades are already down but some light still shines through.)

Customer: “It is way too bright. I have very sensitive eyes. You need to do something about the sun.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but the shades are already down. Would you like to move to a different table that is away from the windows?”

Customer: “No! I want you to do something about the sun!”

Me: “Sir, I really can’t control the sun.”

Customer: “You can’t do anything? I have very sensitive eyes!”

Me: “I can move you to another table.”

Customer: “No, that won’t work. How about you just stand here while I eat and block the sun?”

Date Fright

| Springville, UT, USA | Food & Drink, Movies & TV, Uncategorized

(I’m hosting and whenever I seat a table, I put an ‘X’ next to the server who got the table so that all the servers get the same amount of tables. Two women walk in.)

Me: “Hello, how many for you today?”

Woman 1: “Just the two.”

Me: *marking the next server* “Well, if you just want to follow me.”

Woman 2: “That wasn’t our name!”

Me: “What?”

Woman 2: “We didn’t have a reservation. That wasn’t us!”

Me: “Oh, I was just marking the server you’ll be having today.”

Woman 1: “Sorry, we just saw Date Night and they took someone’s reservation and almost died!”

When Life Presents A Fork, Choose The Right Way

, | Illinois, USA | Food & Drink, Liars & Scammers, Uncategorized

Customer: *walks up to the counter* “Hey, you guys forgot my fork and croutons!”

Me: “I’m sorry about that, ma’am. Here you are.”

Customer: “Well, don’t I get free food because you guys messed up?!”

Me: “You get a free fork and croutons.”

Reaching New (Faren)Heights Of Stupidity

| Manila, Philippines | Math & Science, Top, Tourists/Travel

(I overhear a tourist couple at breakfast one table over.)

Customer: “Every day! This coffee is never hot enough.”

Customer’s husband: “You’re just gonna have to get used to that. In these countries that use the Celsius scale, they boil their water at only 100 degrees.”

Can’t Keep A Good Waitress Down

| Baltimore, MD, USA | Food & Drink, Math & Science, Top

(I am working as a bartender at a restaurant. The waitress has added a 15% gratuity because the party has been large and difficult to deal with.)

Customer: “Miss? What’s this ‘gravity’ crap?! I ain’t paying for no ‘gravity!'”

Waitress: *without missing a beat* “Ma’am, that’s what holds the food to your plate.”

Customer: “Oh, alright then.” *pays the check*
