Brain Freeze

, | Brooklyn, NY, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Popular

(I am about to order ice cream for my two young children. An older lady holding a cone rushes in front of us and pushes my three-year-old out of her way.)

Customer: “Hey, watch your kid!”

(She turns to the cashier.)

Customer: “Excuse me, but this ice cream is just so frozen it’s not even funny.”

Cashier: “I’m sorry about that, ma’am. Would you like me to get a new one?”

Customer: “Yes. And make it less frozen!”

(The cashier gets her another ice cream. She takes a lick and drops it in the nearby trashcan.)

Customer: “This is also too frozen! You have terrible service!”

Cashier: “Well, ma’am, the thing about ice cream is that it tends to freeze. The best advice I have for you is to wait until it melts.”

(The customer stomps off.)

Cashier: *to me* “You know what ice cream is, right?”

Finding Fresh Ways To Complain

| Kristiansand, Norway | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Pets & Animals, Popular

(I work at the local fish market. We keep live cod in fish tanks so that the customers can get them as fresh as possible.)

Customer: “Hello. That fish in the tank over there. Is that fresh?”

Me: “Well, yes, it’s alive.”

Customer: “I see that, but is it fresh? How long has it been living in there?”

Me: “A few days.”

Customer: “Then it’s not fresh!”

Giving You A Grilling About The Chicken

| NJ, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Popular

(I am a server at a new restaurant in my hometown, taking a customer’s order.)

Customer: *pointing to the Grilled Chicken Sandwich on the menu* “Excuse me, is there chicken in this?”

(I think she’s kidding because it says chicken, but she doesn’t smile.)

Me: “Uh, yes, ma’am, there is chicken in the Grilled Chicken Sandwich.”

Customer: “Well, it doesn’t say that anywhere. You should tell your boss to clarify the menu.”

Drawing To A Conclusion

| Finland | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Popular, Technology

(We have a self-service coffee machine, which has caused a lot of confusion with the customers about which button to press. We’ve put really clear markings to the machine to lessen the “problem,” we hid every unnecessary button with white stickers, and someone has drawn arrows on them to point at the only button a customer needs to press. We also have two different card readers at the checkout, labeled with multiple stickers so people would know which one to use.)

Customer: “This must be a joke. Are you making fun of your customers with all these markings on the coffee machine?”

Me: “I’m sorry; I guess someone has got a little carried away with the drawings. You wouldn’t believe how often people still ask what to press though.”

(Customer chuckles a little and comes to checkout to pay their stuff.)

Customer: *totally oblivious now* “So, which card reader should I use?”
