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!

Just Plain Stealing

| Iowa City, IA, USA | Criminal & Illegal, Food & Drink, Popular

(I am second in line at a coffee shop counter.)

Customer: “Can I please get a plain coffee, medium?”

Barista: “Sure, that’ll be [low amount].”

(The customer moves over and I am next.)

Me: “Medium pumpkin spice latte.”

(The barista takes my $5 or so and I move over with the first customer. She is standing really close to the place where the barista drops off the drink, hovering over the counter. I stand farther back to allow people to move between us to get to the seating area. Several minutes go by and the girl ahead of me leaves with a drink. I wait longer, noticing people behind me are getting their drinks before me.)

Me: *to barista making coffees* “Hello, I was wondering if you’ve made a medium pumpkin spice latte yet? I’ve been waiting for almost ten minutes.”

Barista #2: “Yes, I put that out a while ago. Is this drink not yours?”

(He gestured to the counter where a plain coffee was sitting. Apparently that girl deliberately ordered a cheap drink and stole the more expensive one when it came up so she didn’t have to pay full price.)

Sorry To Be A Burger

| South Bend, IN, USA | Family & Kids, Food & Drink

(I am at a fairly old burger-and-shake place that my siblings and I love to go to. We have just ordered and are waiting for our food.)

Waitress: “Thanks for being patient. Here are your burgers and drinks will be right over.”

Brother: *to me* “Dude, I told her I don’t want lettuce or tomatoes on my burger.”

Me: “Well, tell her when she brings the drinks.”

(The waitress comes back with the drinks.)

Brother: “Excuse me; I didn’t want the lettuce or tomatoes on my sandwich.”

Waitress: “Oh, I’m sorry about that. Just don’t eat that sandwich and I’ll bring over a new one right away.”

(While the waitress goes to get the other burger my brother eats original one. I look at him in shock. The waitress comes back with the new burger, and it looks like we are trying to scam her.)

Me: *to my brother* “I am never going to come back here with you ever again.”

Brain-Fried

| Dallas, TX, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(The office building where I work has a deli in the basement. I’m standing in line behind a coworker. It is my coworker’s turn to order.)

Deli Attendant: “May I help you?”

Coworker: “Yes. Is there chicken in the chicken fried rice?”

Deli Attendant: “…”

Me: *to coworker* “Seriously?”

Coworker: “Yeah, that’s not what I meant to say. I don’t know what I wanted to ask.”
