Stupid Customers, like the rest of us have to eat and drink. Sadly like the rest of us, they sometimes eat with the rest of us. For every waiter, server, drive-thru operator, coffee shop barista, and restaurant manager who has had to deal with fake allergies, vegetarians who don’t know the meaning of the word and idiots who have yet to understand the concept of clearly listed ingredients, we salute you!

The Only Weight I Want To Lose Is The One Behind Me

| MI, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Food & Drink, Popular

(I am a customer in this story. I also am only 14, and look really young. I’m in line by myself.)

Me: *to cashier* “Hi! Can I have a kid soft serve and a small chili cheese fry?”

Woman Behind Me: “NO!”

Me: “…”

Cashier: “Well, what do you want?”

Me: “…I want a kids soft serve and a small chili cheese fry.”

Woman Behind Me: “I told you, no!” *to cashier* “Make that a large ice cream, and a double chili cheese fry. Also, get her a large sundae.”

Me: “But… I don’t want that!”

Woman: “Just get it.”

(The cashier leaves to make the food, while I’m in shock.)

Woman Behind Me: “So, how old are you? 10?”

Me: “I’m 14…”

Woman: “Pshh. Already counting calories? Trying to lose weight?”

Me: “…”

(The cashier comes out, holding the sundae, large ice cream, and a double order of fries.)

Me: “I can’t pay for this…”

Woman: “Kids these days, making adults pay for everything they want. Wait here. I’ll get more money.” *she walks away*

Me: “Can I have my food now?”

Cashier: “What do you mean?”

Me: “My food, not what that lady ordered.”

Cashier: “Listen, your mom knows what you should eat. Listen to her.”

Me: “I have never met that lady before.”

Cashier: *awkward pause* “I’ll change your order…”

My Carrot Top Complaint

| Savannah, GA, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Hotels & Lodging

(I’m working as a server, checking in on guests who have already received their meal.)

Me: “Hey, how is everything?”

Customer: “Oh, yes, everything was good. Except…” *she points to an orange wedge in her fruit cup* “I do not like this carrot piece.”

Me: “Carrot? You mean orange?”

Customer: “Yes, it is orange! But it is still not a very good carrot!”

Me: “…I can’t argue that, ma’am.”

Showing Eventual Medium Returns

| BC, Canada | At The Checkout, Food & Drink

(I am the assistant manager of a fast-food restaurant. We are currently running a promotion where you can get any size soft drink for only $1. I witness this exchange between a customer and my employee. The customer is shouting throughout this.)

Employee: “Hello, what can I get for you?”

Customer: “[Soda]!”

Employee: “Okay, just one [Soda]?”

Customer: “Diet [Soda]!”

Employee: “So that’s one diet [Soda]?”

Customer: “Yes!”

Employee: “Is that a medium size?”

Customer: “No! A [Soda] and diet [Soda]!”

Employee: “Oh, you want a [Soda] and a diet [Soda]?”

Customer: “Yes!”

Employee: “Okay, are they medium size?”

Customer: “Medium! The other large!”

Employee: “Which one?”

Customer: “Large [Soda]! Medium diet [Soda]!”

Employee: “Okay, is that all for you?”

Customer: “Yes!”

(He obtains his order and leaves.)

Me: *to employee* “That was way more complicated than it needed to be.”
