I’m at a park with my 8-year old daughter. There is a pond that has several cattails. We’re feeding some ducks when a man squeals in delight.)

Man: “YES!”

(The man excitedly runs over to the cattails at the edge of the pond.)

Man: “They finally made CORN DOG PLANTS!” *runs over to me* “Hey lady! Look! They finally made CORN DOG PLANTS! Isn’t that amazing!?”

Me: “Um, I don’t mean to disappoint you, sir, but those  are cattails. They have nothing to do with corn dogs.”

(Hearing this, the man becomes crestfallen.)

Man: *deflated* “Oh…”

It’s happy hour at the bar I work at, we’re serving a regular we know well for being confrontational normally, and even worse when he gets drunk, but he never actually goes so far as to swing or do anything to incite something past words so we haven’t seen fit to kick him out, we also get people from a nearby military base pretty often, so you’d have to be an idiot to seriously pick a fight. I’m working the bar and see the regular is nearing his point and has gone to pick on someone who, to my horror, is an obvious amputee I haven’t seen before.

Regular: “Come on stumpy, come at me, I’ll even give you the first swing! Or are you gonna show me you’re half the man you used to be!”

The new guy grunts. Obviously annoyed but not wanting trouble he continues to ignore him, then the regular throws his drink in his face.

Regular: “Hey, what’s that on your finger, a wedding band? You even got the d*** to please her anymore? Tell ya what, you give me your address and I’ll go-”

Before anyone can react, the regular is on the floor bleeding from his mouth unconscious, the new guy wipes off his knuckles, sits down like nothing ever happened and goes back to his drink. At this point the soldiers in the bar are going OORAH, when one of them turns to me.

Other regular: “Guy over there is the toughest damn soldier I’ve met, lost his arm to a bomb and still managed to kill the guys that attacked his squad before getting rescued.”

I see the new guy pull out a piece of paper, write something on it, and slip it into the regular’s pocket. When the regular came to it was in the back of an ambulance. The regular was banned for attacking both a veteran and a disabled person as well as jailed for assault. And as for what was written on the note? According to the Vet it was; “What does it say about you that I could still kick your ass with one arm and one punch?”

(When I was 19, I worked in a well-known video game store in my local mall to gather some extra funds. One day, everything is going swimmingly until a man in about his 30s walks in at about 7:30 PM.)
Me: “Welcome to

, how are you doing?”
Customer: “Shut up.”
Me: “Excuse me?”
Customer: (annoyed) “I said shut up!”
(I ignore him for a couple of  minutes, when the annoyed customer comes and slams a copy of a PS4 game onto the counter.)
Customer: “I want this for free!”
Me: “No.”
Customer: “I said I want it for FREE!”
Me: “I said no.”
Customer: “THAT’S IT!”
(The agitated customer then flung the case at my face, screaming profanity at me.)
Customer: (screaming) “I WANT THAT PS4 GAME FOR FREE, YOU C****! F*** YOU, N*****!”
(He attempts to jump over the counter to attack, but fails and falls over, knocking over batteries, headphones, and a Nintendo 3DS display in the process.)
Customer: “F*** YOU, B****! I WANT A MANAGER, NOW!”
(My manager runs in to find out what happened)
Manager: “What the h*** is going on in here?”
Customer: “He attacked me! He threw a game at me and pushed me into a display!”
Manager: “[My name], is that true?”
Me: “Not at all. HE was the one who threw the game, then jumped to attack and knocked over the display.”
Customer: “You have ZERO proof I did that! The customer is ALWAYS RIGHT!”
Me: “Actually, we have security cameras, and we also have several witnesses who can give testimony.”
(We go into the security camera room, and the footage shows everything; the man throwing the game, trying to jump over the counter, and knocking over the 3DS display.)
Manager: “Hmm. It turns out [My name] was right.”
(The customer at this point begins to throw a hissy fit, not listening to us at all.)
Customer: “BUT THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT! HE DIDN’T GIVE ME MY FREE GAME! THAT FOOTAGE WAS EDITED!”
(The manager and I at this point, have had enough, and kick him out. The man was eventually arrested for assault and disturbing the peace. Fast-forward a few years later. I have since resigned from my job for a better-paying one. After my shift, I was sitting in my apartment reading when I got a call from my manager at my video game store job. He tells me to come visit for a surprise. I arrive about ten minutes later.)
Manager: “Hello, [My name]. Remember this guy?” (points to a man)
(I looked over, and it was the man that attacked me a few years ago.)
Manager: “He walked by this afternoon when I recognized him and I called him over here. He has something to say to you.”
Customer: “I-I’m s-s-s…”
Manager: “Come on. Say it.”
Customer: “I’m sorry I threw the game at you and tried to beat you up.”
(After he apologized, I the manager gave me a free $35 Nintendo eShop gift card and sent me on my way. Nowadays, I occasionally drop by the video game store, sometimes to buy a game, or to talk to my manager. We usually have a laugh about the whole “free game” fiasco, and if I have kids, I am definitely telling them about this!)

Fry Me A River

(I am a manager at a popular fast food restaurant. A customer comes up to the register and I take the order because I sent the cashier to get something for another customer.)

Me: “Welcome to [Restaurant]! How may I help you?”

Customer: “Give me three [signature sandwiches].”

Me: “Would you like to make those meals, with fries and drinks, or just the sandwiches?”

Customer: “Just the sandwiches, and three [sodas].”

(I repeat the order, take her money, get her order together, and hand it to her on a tray.)

Customer: “Where are my fries?”

Me: “I am sorry, but you did not order fries.”

Customer: “I ordered the meals.”

Me: “I asked you if you wanted meals, and you said that you only wanted the sandwiches and drinks. If you want, I can get you fries, and just charge you the difference between what you paid and the price of the meals.”

Customer: “You should have known I wanted fries. I am not paying more for them. GIVE ME MY FRIES!”

Me: “If you want fries, you will have to pay for them. I am not a mind reader.”

Customer: “GIVE ME MY FRIES, NOW! I WANTED FRIES AND YOU DIDN’T GET THEM FOR ME! I DESERVE THEM FOR FREE! THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT!”

Me: “Ma’am, I asked you if you wanted fries and you said you only wanted the sandwiches and drinks. I will not give you free food because you didn’t order what you wanted.”

Customer: “THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT!”

Me: “Not here, you’re not!”

(I just silently stared at her while she looked at me in shock, and then looked embarrassed and slunk away.)

(On the phone with a customer)

Customer: Can I get the boneless chicken?

Me: Sure. What size would you like?

Customer: 8. And can I get those mild?

Me: Actually, we don’t put sauce on our boneless chicken. I CAN give you a side sipping cup for mild, will that…

Customer: I KNOW you put sauce on your boneless!

Me: Excuse me?

Customer: My neighbor said you put sauce on your boneless! Why is that so hard? What kind of wing place doesn’t put sauce on their wings? You put it on my neighbor’s wings?

Me: Well, we aren’t actually a wing place. We are a pizza place that happens to sell wings. And if your neighbor got sauce on his boneless then I am sorry for the miscommunication but that is not something we typically do for our boneless. It makes the breading soggy.

Customer: Well I want mild on my wings!

Me: Okay, ma’am, 8 mild boneless wings. Anything else I can get for you?

Customer: Oh, and can you make sure those are tossed?

Me: Well since we dont usually put sauce on our boneless we don’t have a real way to toss them, so…

Customer: *sighs loudly* *hangs up*
