As If The Customer Isn’t Sour Enough

, , | Right | August 26, 2019

Customer: “Tomatoes, spinach, lettuce, vinegar…”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, we’re out of vinegar today.”

Customer: “What? Well, how can I have a sandwich without vinegar?”

Me: “Yeah, I’m sorry, we didn’t get our last shipment so—”

Customer: “I waited through that entire line and you don’t have vinegar? I don’t know if I can eat my sandwich without vinegar!”

Me: “Well, I’m sorry, we don’t have any right now—”

Customer: Why don’t you have a sign up?! This is awful. I always have vinegar on my sandwich!”

Me: “If you don’t want the sandwich we can throw it away for you; you don’t have to pay for it.”

Customer: “I want to speak to your manager!”

Me: *lying* “I’m sorry, but she’s not in at the moment. If you don’t want your sandwich we can—”

Customer: “I can’t believe you don’t have vinegar!”

(This goes on for at least five minutes. Finally, she decides to buy the sandwich anyway, and we get her to leave. She insists on having a receipt in case she wants to return it. All this is in the middle of the lunch rush. A few minutes later, she returns with the un-tasted sandwich and asks for her money back.)

Customer: “I hope you know you’ve lost a customer today!”
