Category: Food & Drink

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 Drink Of The Month

| IA, USA | Food & Drink, Language & Words, Rude & Risque

(I work at a kiosk of a popular coffee chain. It’s before school, and my coworker is ringing up a girl’s order.)

Customer: “I want a peppermint mocha, but with no coffee in it.”

Coworker: “Okay, so a steamer.”

(My coworker hands me the cup and I can’t help but giggle a little.)

Coworker: “What is it?”

Me: “Oh, you wrote down PMS for the drink order.”

Coworker: *laughing* “Oh jeez, I didn’t even think about that. But that’s what it is, a peppermint mocha steamer.”

Customer: “That’s one way to start a morning.”

(I make the drink and hand it to her.)

Me: “Here’s your PMS, ma’am.”

Customer: “Don’t go PMSing now!”

Buy One, Get One Free a From Thought

, | Canada | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(A customer presents me with a buy one get one free for a burger.)

Customer: “How much would this come to?”

Me: “That’s [price].”

Customer: “Okay, and how much would it be if I didn’t use the coupon and only got one burger?”

Me: *That’s [same price].”

Customer: “But how come it’s the same price?”

Never Too Late (Or Early) To Apologize

| Canberra, ACT, Australia | Bad Behavior, Food & Drink, Love/Romance

(A young woman in her late teens approaches the counter — her face is beet red. I’m a new hire and don’t want to deal with her, as she’s clearly angry, but she catches my eye before I can hide in the back.)

Me: “Good morning, ma’am! What can I get for you today?”

(The woman glares at me, but takes a deep breath and rubs at her eyes– then holds up her hand as though she is physically restraining herself from doing anything stupid.)

Customer: “Look. My boyfriend just broke up with me and I’m really not in a good mood but I’m not angry with you and I’m really sorry you have to deal with me because I’m going to be rude and mean and you don’t deserve that. Okay? Sorry in advance.”

Me: *taken aback* “Er… all right?”

Customer: “Could I f****** get the unhealthiest f****** thing on your f****** menu, please? F***.”

(Here’s the kicker: she was much more polite than most people I dealt with that day!)
