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!

Your Last (Corn) Meal

, | NJ, USA | Awesome Workers, Food & Drink

(A regular bar patron who would drink Irish coffee and run his yap is talking about French fries, when he spots me, the chef.)

Customer: “Do you put corn meal on your French fries?”

Me: “Uh… no.”

Customer: “F*** you!”

(He later died, and his repass was held in our banquet room. That day, we put corn meal on our French fries.)

Turns Out Not To Be Sweet Nothings

| NY, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Food & Drink

(I am working the register, and it has been a bit slow. A man approaches with two shirts. I ask him all the usual questions, like if he found everything and if he’d like to sign up for our rewards card, and we get to the total.)

Me: “Okay, your total is $27.94.”

Customer: *looking at the candies by the counter* “Hmm, chocolate covered blueberries?”

Me: “Yeah, I’ve had something like those before. They were weird, but pretty cool. Are you going to get those? If you are, I’ll need to add them to the total.”

Customer: “Okay, sure. And I’ll share them with you guys!”

(I look at my coworker who is standing behind me, trying to figure out if he’s serious or not. I can’t tell, so I just laugh awkwardly and add them to his purchase.)

Me: “Okay, your total now is $35.05.”

(The man swipes his credit card, and I give him his receipt. Then, he rips open the bag and offers some to me.)

Me: “Wait, you were serious?”

Customer: “Yeah! Hold out your hand and say when.”

(He gave a couple to my coworker and me, then left. They were very good, and the gesture made my night!)

Drive-Thru Has Its Hang-Ups

| VA, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Technology

(I’m a customer in line at the drive thru. I’ve just ordered and this happens with the customer behind me:)

Employee: “Welcome to [Restaurant]. May I take your order?”

(A few moments pass, and the employee repeats the greeting.)

Employee: “Welcome to [Restaurant]. May I take your order?”

Customer: “Hang on! Jesus, can’t you see I’m on the phone!?”
