Trending In The Wrong Direction

| UK | Uncategorized

(I work at a fairly indie bar. We have a lot of real ales on tap, which we serve in special old-fashioned mugs.)

Me: “Here you go,sir. One [name of ale].”

Customer: “This mug has a short straw on the bottom.”

Me: “That’s okay, I can take it off.” *moving to pull it away*

Customer: “Nah, you can leave it on. I want to start a new fashion trend!”

Me: *laughing* “Okay, I’ll leave it for you. That comes to [total].”

Customer: *hands over money* “Actually, I better take it off. The missis might get jealous I started a new trend and she didn’t!”

Obviously, He Needs Food For Thought

(I work in a large, well-known used bookstore. We offer complimentary coffee and doughnuts to our patrons, but we do not have a cafe or serve any other food. The bookshelves are extremely obvious and numerous. A middle-aged man enters.)

Customer: “I’ll have a medium hot dog to go.”

Me: *laughing* “Sorry, sir! We’re fresh out of hot dogs!”

Customer: *rolling his eyes and heaving a big sigh* “Okay, then what else do you have?”

Me: “Um, we have coffee and doughnuts.”

Customer: “That’s it? You don’t have any sandwiches or anything? What kind of a restaurant is this?”

Me: “We’re a bookstore.”

Customer: “A bookstore!? But I’m hungry!”

Me: “Well, like I said, we do have coffee and doughnuts–”

Customer: “Forget it! I’ll find another restaurant. This is ridiculous!”

(A very attractive woman approaches me at my office desk.)

Customer: “Where can I find the condoms…oh, never mind. I see them.”

(She walks over, grabs a bottle of ketchup, and checks out.)

Me: “Thank you for calling [store]. How may I help you?”

Caller: “Five boxes, dozen donuts each, right now.”

Me: “Okay, is there any specific–”

(Suddenly, I hear a woman screaming in the background.)

Woman: “Donuts! NOW!”

(The caller gets back on the phone.)

Caller: “Whatever flavors you have. Five dozen donuts A-S-A-motherf***ing-P!”

Me: “Um, alright, that’ll be [price]. How much change should our deliveryman bring?”

Caller: “I will give your delivery guy all the money I have in the house! Just get him here before my wife sits on me and hits me with the freakin’ remote control!”

Don’t Mind The Behind

(I’m a hostess at a restaurant. Many of the employees wear headsets to communicate with each other. It’s a busy Friday night and I’m walking an English gentleman over to his table.)

Customer: “Excuse me, why do you have a red light on your backside?”

(I look around and realize what he’s talking about.)

Me: “Oh, it’s my headset. The light just indicates that it is on.”

Customer: “Oh, okay.”

(I drop him off at his table and leave laughing. Later, the server for his table comes up to me…)

Server: “He asked me, ‘Do you have a red bottom too?'”
