A Uniform Response

| Boston, MA, USA | Bizarre, Extra Stupid

Customer: “Can I get a medium vanilla soft serve?”

Me: “Yeah, no problem. Would you like toppings?”

Customer: “Yes, but I have a question; do you have to buy to work here?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “Well the apron you’re wearing is for sale here, so you have to pay to work here, right?”

Other Customer: “Um, that means you can buy the apron they wear.”

Customer: “Well, then I would have to work here.”

All The Ingredients For A Weird Interaction

| MA, USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink, Popular

(I am working the morning shift with my uncle in his small sandwich shop where most of the customers are regulars who live around town. A man I had never seen before walked in holding a bag of groceries.)

Customer: “Hi, I just moved to the area and heard this place was good. Do you guys make breakfast sandwiches here?”

Me: “Yes! We have egg and cheese with sausage, bacon, or egg.”

Customer: “Great! I’ll take a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich on an English muffin.”

(I turn around to start making the sandwich when he stops me.)

Customer: “Actually, would you mind making it with my ingredients? I have gluten-free English muffin, cage-free eggs, imported cheese, and antibiotic-free sausage in here.”

(He holds up the grocery bag and tries to hand it to me.)

Me: *confused* “So, let me get this straight. You have all the ingredients for the sandwich. You just want me to cook them for you and then sell it back to you as a sandwich?”

Customer: “Yup!”

(I look at my uncle and he just shrugs, so I take the bag, make the sandwich with his ingredients, and sell it back to him. After he leaves, I turn back to my uncle.)

Me: “Couldn’t he have just cooked this at home for free?”

(He still comes in all the time and asks us to cook various food for him.)
