Not A Very Smart Cookie

| OH, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(A customer is standing in the store looking at the case of pastries.)

Customer: “What’s a peanut butter cookie?”

Me: “It’s a cookie with peanut butter.”

Customer: “What’s a chocolate chip cookie?”

Me: “It’s a cookie with chocolate chips in it.”

Customer: “What’s the difference?”

Me: “The peanut butter cookie has peanut butter and no chocolate chips, and the chocolate chip cookie has chocolate chips and no peanut butter.”

Customer: “I don’t understand the difference.” *deliberates for a few minutes* “I’ll get one of each…”

Customer: “Can I have the [flavor] pie?”

Me: “Sure! Would you like sauce with that?”

Customer: “And it’s to eat-in please.”

Me: “Sure. Do you need tomato sauce?”

Customer: “I’ll also have a [coffee] with that.”

Me: “I’ll add that to your order. Do you need tomato sauce for the pie?”

Customer: “Make sure its skinny milk! And I’ll also have a slice of cake.”

Me: *giving up* “Sure. Was there anything else I can get you today?”

Customer: “No, thanks. That’s all.”

Me: “Okay, so that comes to [total]. Here’s your table number.”

Customer: *hands over money but doesn’t move*

Me: “Um, if you’d like to take the table number, ma’am, we’ll bring everything out for you.”

Free Of Gluten, Free Of Thought, Part 3

| Cleveland, OH, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Health & Body

(Most of the products in our bakery are dusted with flour. I am running the register when a customer walks up with a dusted loaf of bread.)

Customer: “I wanted to ask: what is this white powder on the bread?”

Me: “It’s just flour, ma’am.”

Customer: “Oh, then I can’t buy this then.”

Me: “Why not?”

Customer: “I’m buying this for my daughter, and she can’t eat gluten. Don’t you know? Flour has gluten in it.”
