Flirting With Disaster

, | KY, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior

(I’m a high school student working at a fast food restaurant in a very small town. One day, a girl from school comes in who is known to be a little more than friendly to guys. A fairly good looking older guy comes in after and she takes notice.)

Girl: *shakes her hips as she approaches the counter*

Me: “Hi, [Girl]! How can I help you?”

Girl: *glancing at the guy while she seductively reaches in her pocket* “An apple juice. And make it fast!” *tosses a few coins at me*

Me: *I dodge the change flying towards my face then pick them up off the floor*

Girl: *laughs* “They are so cute when they struggle for money.”

Guy: *raises and eyebrow but says nothing*

Me: “Uh, sorry, but you need 50 more cents.”

Girl: *sighs dramatically* “No, I don’t. I think you are just wanting to put a little more cash in your pocket.”

Guy: *rolls his eyes and pinches the bridge of his nose*

Me: “They are $1.25 and you only gave me 75 cents. I just need…”

Girl: “Listen here, since you are so dense and have to work to get anything, I’ll go easy on you and give you a math lesson. Two quarters, two dimes, and a nickel equals to $1.25. Now, if you please, give me my apple juice.” *looks at guy* “I have to go to the gym later.”

(I should point out that we don’t have a gym in this town.)

Guy: *looks at the girl* “Okay, this is taking so long. Anyone with a grade school education knows that two quarters, two dimes, and a nickel is only 75 cents. Now, please, give her the money and get going. I’m in a hurry. And don’t throw it at her this time. She’s obviously way smarter than you and doesn’t need to take any crap from people like you.”

Girl: *nervously digs in her pocket for the rest of the change, lays it on the counter, receives her juice, and runs out*

(She never came back again and won’t even look at me in school!)

Thinks You’re Just Winging The Orders

, | Evans, GA, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Food & Drink, Time

(I work in a fast food chain that specializes in buffalo wings. Two separate customers order wings, the first customer orders 20 wings while the customer right behind him orders five wings. At the time, we only have 10 wings prepared for instant sale, and were about halfway through cooking a new batch; an eight minute process. We decide to get the five-wing customer his wings and cook the 20 wing fresh for the second customer. We make the order in a few seconds and I hand out the order to the customer who then walks out.)

Other Customer: “Why did he get his order first?”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. We only had 10 wings ready so we didn’t have enough for your order… but we did have enough for him, so we went ahead and finished his order.”

(The customer seemed content with the answer, not replying… so I went on with my cleaning until his order came up a moment later.)

Me: “Here you are ,sir! Sorry about the wait, but we gave you all the fresh wings! Hope you enjoy!”

Customer: “Lemme ask you something… Do you like f***ing your customers?”

Me: “Uh… I’m sorry, sir. I don’t understand…”

Customer: “Why is it that you made me wait on my order and gave that guy his order first when I made my order first?”

Me: “Uh, I’m sorry, sir. As I said before we only had 10 wings a few minutes ago… We didn’t have enough to make your order… but we DID have enough for his order so we went ahead and got his order out of the way… You would have had to wait anyway because even before we made his order we didn’t have enough for you order.”

Customer: “This is discrimination!” (him, the other customer, and I are all the same race)

Me: “No, sir! It’s not! We just didn’t have enough! We only had TEN wings! You ordered TWENTY! We didn’t have enough for you! We weren’t going to ask the guy with only FIVE wings to stand around waiting when we HAD enough for his order and NOT yours!”

Customer: “I’m never eating here again!” *walks out*

Should Have Screamed For The Ice Cream

, | Australia | Food & Drink

(I’m serving an elderly woman that can’t hear very well. She has orders a meal and I don’t hear her, but I thought she said she wanted a cone as well.)

Me: “Sorry, did you want the cone with the meal?”

Customer: “No, that’s fine; that’s all.”

Me: “So you didn’t want the cone?”

Customer: “No, that’s all.”

(The customer pays and get her meal.)

Customer: “I ordered a cone with that…”

In Defiance Of The Alliance

| UK | Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(A customer calls me over to his table.)

Customer: “Do you use [popular American Brand] coffee?”

Me: “No, sir, we use [Local Brand].”

Customer: “But this is false advertising! You’re using [American Brand’s] logo! I only came here because I wanted [American Brand] coffee!”

Me: “Please show me where you read this.”

Customer: *still ranting, points at a logo on the menu*

Me: “That’s the Rainforest Alliance logo. It just means that our brand is part of the Rainforest Alliance.”

Customer: “Well… you shouldn’t be allowed to use the same picture.”

Way Off The Menu

, | UT, USA | Bad Behavior, Food & Drink

(I work at a well-known sandwich shop chain and we have a limited menu. It’s a little slow and I’m with my coworker and shift manager. A homeless man walks into our shop.)

Everyone: “Hi! Welcome to [Shop]!”

Coworker: “What can I get for you today?”

Customer: “You guys got any pastrami?”

Coworker: “I’m sorry, sir, unfortunately we only have [lists the meats on our menu].”

Customer: “What about steak?”

Coworker: “We do not sir, I’m sorry.”

Customer: “Well, what do you have here?”

Coworker: *lists all of our sandwiches and sides, which include cookies*

Customer: “Well, then can I get a turkey? And be sure to toast it.”

Coworker: “We actually don’t toast our sandwiches. They only come cold.”

Customer: “Fine. Whatever. Can I get a bowl of soup to get with that as well?”

Coworker: “Sir, again, we only have [lists side items].”

Customer: “What kind of sandwich shop is this?!”

(My manager and I have been waiting on the line to make his sandwich and hear everything.)

Manager: “Sir, [Another Sandwich shop] is just up the road. If you go there I know they have all the things you requested.”

Customer: “NO! I WANT TO EAT HERE!”

Manager: “Sir, we have told you the menu—”

Customer: “WELL, I DON’T LIKE YOUR MENU! YOU NEED MORE THINGS!”

Manager: “Sir, I have suggested another shop that can satisfy you and you rejected it. You can order something off our menu, or you can leave.”

Customer: “FINE!” *orders sandwich*

Coworker: “Would you like a cookie with that?”

Customer: “Ya, got any macadamia?”

Coworker: “We only have chocolate and oatmeal.”

Customer: “What about sugar?”

Manager: “Sir, those are our only choices.”

Customer: “This place is so stupid! Fine; I’ll have oatmeal.”

(We make his sandwich and wrap it up for him and just want him to leave.)

Customer: “This place is so stupid! I knew I should’ve gone to [Shop my manager recommended earlier].” *leaves*

Me: “He didn’t have to eat here!”

Manager: “I need a minute. I’ll be back.”

(My manager needed a few minutes to cool down before the dinner rush. Luckily we didn’t have any more incidences and we never saw him again.)
