Allergic To Common Sense, Part 3

| Cicero, IL, USA | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

(After ordering a breakfast sandwich with only sausage and cheese, a customer comes back with said sandwich with a few bites taken.)

Customer: “I can’t eat this!”

Me: “I’m sorry. Is there a problem with your order?”

Customer: “I can’t eat meat. I’m allergic.”

(Confused on why she ordered it in the first place, I offer her something else or her money back.)

Customer: “Just make me a sandwich with ham and cheese.”

Me: “Um, you just told me you’re allergic to meats.”

Customer: “Yes.”

Me: “Ham is a meat.”

Customer: “I’m allergic to that meat.” *points at sandwich*

Me: “You’re only allergic to that type of sausage?”

Customer: “Yes, that’s why I’m telling you to make me a sandwich with ham instead!”

Me: “Are you sure you just didn’t like it?”

Customer: “Are you calling me a liar?!”

Me: “Well, it’s just that our sausage is made from pork. Now you’re asking for ham.”

Customer: “What’s your point?”

Me: “Ham is a pork product. If you eat this, I may have to call a paramedic in due to your throat possibly swelling. We wouldn’t want to risk your life, miss.”

Customer: “…I didn’t like the sausage.”

Travel Plans Are Bus(t)

| UK | Bad Behavior, Tourists/Travel

(I’ve booked a seat on a coach to take me into town from the airport. It turns out to be a 12-seater minibus and it’s fully booked. I notice a woman pushing angrily to the front of the queue despite not having a ticket.)

Angry Woman: “The desk is closed! Why is the ticket desk closed?”

Bus Driver: “It’s a public holiday, ma’am, so you need to buy your ticket from the drivers. Unfortunately, most people have booked ahead and this bus was full a week ago. You’ll need to wait for the next one.”

Angry Woman: “What?! That’s absolutely ridiculous! How is it my fault if all these people are pushy and greedy? Let me on immediately!”

Bus Driver: “I’m sorry, ma’am. As I explained these people have already paid and you will need to wait for the next bus.”

Angry Woman: “I won’t have this! What if the next bus does this, too? How do you expect me to get to London? Walk?”

Bus Driver: “Sorry, ma’am. If the next bus is full I suggest you try [Major Coach Operator] two bays down. They run 53-seater coaches so they should be able to fit you in.”

Angry Woman: “This is the worst customer service I have ever seen! I am going to put in a big complaint and you will lose everything!”

Other Passenger: “Look, how is it the driver’s fault if you didn’t have the sense to buy a ticket like everyone else?”

Angry Woman: “I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO!” *storms off*

Has No Room To Maneuver

| USA | Crazy Requests, Hotels & Lodging

Lady: “I’d like a room.”

Me: “I’m sorry, we have no more.”

Lady: “What? WHY NOT?!”

Me: “Because we have run out of rooms to sell.”

Lady: “Don’t be smart!”

Me: “You want me to act dumb?”

Lady: “No! I want YOU to give ME a room!”

Me: “Look, we don’t have any more. I don’t know–.”

Lady: “Ridiculous! Absolutely ridiculous! I come in a hotel, and they don’t have rooms?! What madness is this?”

Me: “Um—”

Lady: “The whole POINT of hotels is to have rooms. Otherwise, it’s like me going into a mattress store and they have no mattresses! Or a hardware store and they have no wrenches!”

Me: “I’m sure that even hardware stores run out of wrenches every once in a while… As for the mattress stores, they have plenty of stock in their warehouse for delivery. We can’t ‘deliver’ rooms and we have no warehouse.”

Lady: “Stop being an a**!”

(She ranted and raved about the ‘insane’ idea of a hotel having no rooms, and was eventually escorted off by security, still screaming!)
