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!

Reached Your Tea Total, Part 2

| Orlando, FL, USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink

Customer: “I want a full-leaf brewed tea.”

Me: “Okay, which one?”

Customer: “The full leaf one.”

Me: “We have a few different kinds, sir. We have mint, chai, English breakfast, zen, Earl Grey, China green tips, and passion tea. Which one did you want?”

Customer: “Which one is closest to mint?”

Me: “The mint.”

Customer: “No, besides that one.”

Me: “…The zen? I guess?”

Customer: “What does that one taste like?”

Me: “…Mint.”

Customer: “How much coffee is in it?”

Allergic To Common Sense, Part 4

| AB, USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink, Health & Body

(A lady orders a blueberry pineapple margarita and I bring it out. A little while later I notice her giving it to her husband and not drinking it.)

Me: “Is everything okay with the margarita?”

Lady: “Oh, yes. I am just allergic to pineapples but wanted to try it.”

Me: “Are you okay?”

Lady: “Oh yeah, it will just turn my face red.” *laughs* “It is already.”

(Sure enough her face developed a rash. She ordered and paid for a drink she knew she was allergic to!)

Not A Grain Of Sense

| DE, USA | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

(An obviously drunk customer wanders into my fragrance shop in the local farmers’ market.)

Customer: “Do you sell grain alcohol in here?”

Me: “No, sir, but there is a liquor store and a pharmacy across the street.”

Customer: “Does anyone sell grain alcohol in here?”

Me: “No, sir. It is only legal to sell that product in drugstores or liquor stores in this state.”

(I’m trying hard to convince myself that the man needs it for his child’s science experiment, or to fuel a bottle rocket. He is peering woozily at my shelves full of fragrances for men and women.)

Customer: “Can you drink any of this stuff?”
