Some Years Are More Golden Than Others

| New Mexico, USA | Uncategorized

(Note: I work at a restaurant where I have to wear an extremely conservative uniform with minimal makeup and jewelry. I’m serving two elderly ladies.)

Me: “Hey guys, how are y’all doing today? What can I get for you to drink?”

Customer #1: “Coffee.”

Customer #2: “Me too, please.”

Me: “Okay, I’ll have that right out for you.”

Customer #1 to #2: “Doesn’t she look like a gold digger?”

Customer #2: “I was thinking the same thing!” *to me* “Honey, are you a gold digger?”

Me: “Um, no, ma’am. I am just a waitress.”

Customer #1: “Well, come on now dear. It’s obvious that you’re a gold digger.”

Customer #2: “It’s nothing to be ashamed of! Be proud! In all my years of living, I’ve learned it’s the best thing to do–be a gold digger!”

Me: “What?”

Customer #2: “It’s okay to be a gold digger, honey. I’m sure you’re a very good one! You look like you’d be great at it.”

Customer #1: “Yes! Well, I’m glad we know that you’re a gold digger now. I’m proud of you. I’d like cream with my coffee.”

Me: “O…Okay, I’ll have that right out…”

Clarissa Kent To The Rescue

| Tennessee, USA | Uncategorized

(Note: These are very frequent customers of ours.)

Me: “Hey Mr.***. How’re you guys doing tonight?”

Customer: “Um, hi…uh…do you by any chance have a twin?”

Me: “A twin? No. Why?”

Customer: “It’s just that there’s a girl who works here and usually serves us. She looks just like you, but she wears glasses.”

Me: “Oh, that is me. I just took my glasses off.”

Customer: “No! It’s not you, I know you’re her twin! She always has glasses on! Is she here tonight? I want her to serve us. I don’t know you.”

Me: “Um, yeah, sure. Hang on…”

(I go in back, put on my glasses, and come back to their table.)

Me: “Hey Mr.***, how’re you guys doing tonight?”

Customer: “Oh ***, there you are! We we just met your twin! Why didn’t you ever tell us?”

Allergic To Honesty

, | Duluth, MN, USA | Uncategorized

Me: “Hello, thanks for calling [pizza place] how may I help you?”

Customer: “I ordered a pizza and it has green peppers and mushrooms on it.”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, but it says here that’s what you ordered.”

Customer: “No! I am allergic to green peppers! Why would I order something I’m allergic to?”

Me: “Alright, I understand. What did you intend to order?”

Customer: “Ham and pepperoni.”

Me: “Okay, we’ll have that out to you right away. Just make sure to give us the other pizza when we get there, okay?”

Fast Food For Fast Thinkers

, | Maryland, USA | Food & Drink, Geeks Rule, Top

Me: “49.”

Customer: “What’s 8 times 8?”

Me: “64.”

Customer: “E equals MC squared?”

Me: “What about it?”

Customer: “What does it mean?”

Customer: “Uhm…”

Me: “Would you like fries with that?”
