Service With A Smile

, | Peoria, AZ, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Food & Drink

(I am working the drive thru and I’m in a good mood.)

Me: “Thank you, ma’am. Your total comes to $3.47 and a smile!”

(I smile at her.)

Customer: “Excuse me? How rude! How dare you?”

Me: “Sorry?”

Customer: “I don’t want to smile, and you can’t make me. Just give me my d*** food.”

(The customer leaves.)

Manager: “What was her problem?”

Me: “I ‘charged’ her a smile.”

Manager: “I hate drive thru.”

The New Boeing Tardis

| Chicago, IL, USA | Extra Stupid, Theme Of The Month, Transportation

(I have to catch a flight leaving at about 6 am. I show up at the self-check-in counters at 5 am, only to discover that my ticket won’t register.)

Airline Rep: “Is there a problem, ma’am?”

Me: “Uh, I think so. I’ve swiped my passport, punched in my ticket number, put in my name, and it’s not registering.”

(The airline rep takes my information and tries it herself; the machine still doesn’t register. She looks at my itinerary.)

Airline Rep: “Well, ma’am, I think your main problem is that your flight doesn’t leave until tomorrow.”

Not The Brightest Of The Bunch

| NSW, Australia | Bizarre, Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

(I am standing at the front counter next to the bowl of bananas we have for making smoothies. A customer in his mid-20s approaches the counter.)

Customer: “Hey, do you sell any bananas?”

Me: “Yes, we do have bananas. However, we cannot sell them to you as we need them for our smoothies.”

Customer: “Great! How much for one?”

Me: “They’re not for sale; we need them. There is a shopping center close by. If you go there, they can sell you bananas, and cheaply too.”

Customer: “Okay… then how much for a banana smoothie?”

Me: “That will be $4.99 for a small, and $5.99 for a large.”

Customer: “Okay… can I get a banana smoothie, but can you not ‘smoothie’ it?”
