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!

Talking Turkey About Cold Cuts

| Charleston, SC, USA | Food & Drink, Money

(It is just after one of the months where all of our sandwiches were $5. The promotion is over, so now only a few regular sandwiches are $5. I ring up a woman’s foot-long turkey sub and the total came out to about $6.)

Female Customer: “No, it’s supposed to be $5.”

Me: “Oh, no, I’m sorry. That promotion is over. The prices are back to normal.”

Female Customer: “But that sign says cold cuts are $5.”

Me: “No, it says the cold cut combo is $5.”

Female Customer: “Turkey is a cold cut.”

Me: “Okay, but it’s not a cold cut combo. That’s a completely different sandwich.”

Female Customer: “Turkey is a cold cut!”

Me: “…”

Female Customer: “You’re just trying to trick all of us! Turkey is a cold cut!”

(She then proceeded to storm off without her sandwich and yelled at me she hoped I was happy I had lost her business. Yeah, the person making $7.25 really cares about the store losing a customer.)

Maybe They Were Cream-Filled?

| OH, USA | Food & Drink, Rude & Risque

(We are having yard sale at our house, where I am selling all kinds of things including chocolate molds for making different types of chocolate candies. A very nice and friendly elderly lady approaches me to chat about them.)

Lady: “You know, I used to have to buy chocolate by the 100 lb. bag because I made and sold so much candy.”

Me: “Wow, sounds like you were pretty busy with it!”

Lady: “Oh, yes, I had a room in my home dedicated to it. Most of my customers were my coworkers at [Local Plant].”

Me: “How nice.”

(I’m trying to be polite but I’ve got to be available for others to ask questions or make purchases.)

Lady: “I used to make chocolate penises.”

Me: “How ni— Wait, what?”

Lady: “Penises. I made a birthday cake covered with chocolate penises for a coworker. It said, ‘here’s the beef!’ Ha! Penises! Can you imagine?”

Thinks You’re Just Winging The Orders

, | Evans, GA, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Food & Drink, Time

(I work in a fast food chain that specializes in buffalo wings. Two separate customers order wings, the first customer orders 20 wings while the customer right behind him orders five wings. At the time, we only have 10 wings prepared for instant sale, and were about halfway through cooking a new batch; an eight minute process. We decide to get the five-wing customer his wings and cook the 20 wing fresh for the second customer. We make the order in a few seconds and I hand out the order to the customer who then walks out.)

Other Customer: “Why did he get his order first?”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. We only had 10 wings ready so we didn’t have enough for your order… but we did have enough for him, so we went ahead and finished his order.”

(The customer seemed content with the answer, not replying… so I went on with my cleaning until his order came up a moment later.)

Me: “Here you are ,sir! Sorry about the wait, but we gave you all the fresh wings! Hope you enjoy!”

Customer: “Lemme ask you something… Do you like f***ing your customers?”

Me: “Uh… I’m sorry, sir. I don’t understand…”

Customer: “Why is it that you made me wait on my order and gave that guy his order first when I made my order first?”

Me: “Uh, I’m sorry, sir. As I said before we only had 10 wings a few minutes ago… We didn’t have enough to make your order… but we DID have enough for his order so we went ahead and got his order out of the way… You would have had to wait anyway because even before we made his order we didn’t have enough for you order.”

Customer: “This is discrimination!” (him, the other customer, and I are all the same race)

Me: “No, sir! It’s not! We just didn’t have enough! We only had TEN wings! You ordered TWENTY! We didn’t have enough for you! We weren’t going to ask the guy with only FIVE wings to stand around waiting when we HAD enough for his order and NOT yours!”

Customer: “I’m never eating here again!” *walks out*
