Entitled To The Laws Of Thermodynamics

(A customer who came through the drive-thru has returned with his bag of food, and is an obvious complainer the second he walks in the door.)

Me: “Hello, can I help you with something?”

Customer: “Yes, I came through the drive-thru about twenty minutes ago. I took my food all the way home, and it’s barely warm!”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry, but if you don’t mind me asking, how far is it to your house from here?”

Customer: “It’s about a ten-minute drive, so I’ve had to drive twenty minutes! I think I should get some free food.”

Me: “I’m sorry for the inconvenience, but in ten minutes, the food loses a lot of its heat. I can give you new food, but unless you eat it here, it’s still going to be quite cold by the time you get home.”

Customer: “But I don’t want to eat it here! I want to eat it at home.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but the food won’t stay hot if you have to take it that far. I’m happy to replace your current food, though, because that won’t be any good anymore.”

Customer: “Fine… but give me a free ice cream cone.”

Me: “Sorry?”

Customer: “For all the inconvenience. Jeez.”

(He ended up calling the store again later that night, whining about it being cold. The managers gave him the reason, but he simply wouldn’t accept it.)
