Serving Your Pie And Eating It Too

| Ohio, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink, Top

(Three teenagers come into the restaurant where I work.)

Teenage Girl #1: “Okay, so we’ll have three large fountain drinks, six orders of fries, three cookies, and one large pepperoni pizza with stuffed crust.”

Me: “Okay, that’ll be [amount].”

(They pay and sit down at a table together with their order. Much to my surprise, Teenage Girl #2 and Teenage Boy get out their own packed lunches and put them in the middle of table to share. They all eat, everyone having a bit of everything. As I sit down at a nearby table for my break, I overhear them talking.)

Teenage Girl #2: “Okay, so maybe ordering a large pizza WASN’T the greatest idea.”

Teenage Boy: “It was the extra fries that did it for me.’

Teenage Girl #1: “So what do we do with the extra pizza?

Teenage Girl #2: “The box is too big for us to lug it around.”

Teenage Boy: “Well, crap. We just wasted some money.”

Teenage Girl #2: “Wait, I have an idea!”

(She gets up, takes the box, and walks over to me while her friends watch on in confusion.)

Teenage Girl #2: “Do you like pepperoni pizza?”

Me: “Um, yeah?”

(Without another word, she drops the box in front of me and walks away. She and her friends leave the restaurant before I get a chance to say thank you. For the record, the pizza was delicious!)

(I am bagging some fish for a customer who is setting up a new tank.)

Me: “Alright, here are your fish. If you’d like to follow me, I can show you where the fish food is.”

Customer: “Fish food? You mean I have to feed them?”

Me: “Well, yes, unless you want them to die.”

Customer: “But I don’t have time to feed any pets. Don’t you have an animal I don’t have to feed?”

(I overhear a conversation between a customer and his wife as they are browsing around.)

Wife: “So, do you see anything you like?”

Husband: “No, not really.”

Wife: “Nothing? Why not?”

Husband: “Because I don’t wear clothes!”

Me: “Thank you for calling Borders. How can I help you?”

Caller: “Yeah, I’m redoing my kitchen right now and I could use some help. I’ve got all the counters and the floors and the cabinets planned, but I can’t decide what to do with the walls. I was thinking some kind of trim would be nice.”

Me: “Okay.”

Caller: *silent*

Me: “Sorry, what are you looking for?”

Caller: “Just trying to figure out what you offer.”

Me: “Uh, well, I can do a quick search on home renovation or decorating and see what we have?”

Caller: “Don’t you have samples or something?”

Me: “What?”

Caller: *sighs loudly* “SAMPLES. Can you come over and bring me some samples?”

Me: “…What?”

Caller: “Oh, good God. Samples, honey! SAM-PLES. They come in a big binder? Show all your different kinds of wallpaper?”

Me: “You know you’ve called Borders, yes?”

Caller: “Of course!”

Me: “…and you know Borders is a bookstore?”

Caller: “No. It’s a wallpaper company.”

Me: “It’s not; it’s a bookstore. We sell books.”

Caller: “ONLY books?”

Me: “That’s right.”

Caller: “Well, then why the h*** did you name it Borders? It sounds like you do wallpaper borders and trims and things!”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am. Do you want me to look up a book on wallpaper for you?”

Caller: “Can you install it if I find something I like?”

Me: “No.”

Caller: “You’re useless!” *hangs up*

We Love To See You Smile

| North Carolina, USA | Awesome Customers, Top

(I am having a terrible day at work, and haven’t smiled once. I have just finished ringing up an older couple’s order.)

Me: “Have a good day.”

Older Customer: “Do you have any paper?”

(I give the customer some receipt paper. He gets a pen, quickly scribbles something on the paper, and hands it to me.)

Older Customer: “Everyone deserves to smile.”

(The customer then walked away. I looked at it and he had drawn me a flower. I still have it. :) )
