Getting Themselves Into An Extra Pickle

, , , , | Right | May 14, 2018

(I am working at the drive-thru.)

Customer: “Yes, I want a hamburger with pickles.”

(Our hamburgers already come with pickles; I’ve been working long enough to interpret this as asking for extra pickles.)

Me: “Okay, one hamburger with extra pickles.”

Customer: “No, I want a hamburger with pickles.”

Me: “Oh, so, you mean you want only pickles?”

Customer: “No, I want a hamburger with pickles.”

Me: *pause* “A hamburger with extra pickles.”

(This goes back and forth for a while, until finally the customer yells at me through the headset.)

Customer: “I JUST WANT A HAMBURGER WITH PICKLES. WHY IS THAT SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND?!”

Me: *losing it* “BECAUSE THE HAMBURGER ALREADY COMES WITH PICKLES, SO YOU SAYING, ‘WITH PICKLES,’ MEANS NOTHING TO ME!”

(I can hear his realization and his passenger’s reaction.)

Customer: “Oh. Then just a regular hamburger.”

(The rest of the transaction went okay.)
