23 Stories About Customers Who Were Dumber Than The Burgers They Ordered

| Right | May 28, 2020

Dear readers,

Today is International Burger Day! There’s nothing quite like a piece of greasy meat and tangy sauces combined with melted cheese, crispy lettuce, a thick cut of tomato, and some pickles for kick – preferably consumed at 4 am, from a drive-thru!

However you enjoy them (or not!) – let us take a moment to think about the employees whose job it is to get those burgers into our hands, and some of the terrible, weird, or just downright stupidity they have to deal with when the customer can’t seem to tell the difference between a hamburger and a cheeseburger.

We’ve sizzled through our archives to serve up 23 stories of burger-themed face-palms, with a side of head-desks! We hope you enjoy!
