(This one guy comes in when we are slower than normal)

Customer: I would like a chai tea with two sugars.

Coworker: Okay, one chai tea with two sugars. Anything else?

Customer: Nope, just that.

Me: -makes the tea- Here you go, one chai tea with two sugars.

Customer: Did you put honey in it?

Me: -perplexed- No, did you want honey?

Customer: Of course I wanted honey! It’s fine, I’ll just drink it in its nasty way.

Coworker: -calling after him- Sir, I can make it again!

(He’s already gone. My coworker and I glanced at one another and scratched our heads, wondering what had just happened.)

A Pizza For All Nations

, , , , , | Right | June 29, 2018

(I work at a small pizza parlor. We have six customers standing in line.)

Me: *working register* “Next customer, please!”

(The next customer walks over to my register from the line, but [Customer #2] proceeds to cut the entire line and approach my register.)

Me: *to [Customer #2]* “Sir, there’s a line. This gentleman was next.”

Customer #2: *looks at me in shock* “You’re really going to serve this [racial slur] before me?!”

([Customer #1] and I exchange glances of astonishment.)

Me: “Sir, there’s no need to use that language here. You’re going to have to go to the back of the line.”

([Customer #2] continues with racist remarks and something about being a traitor to my kind.)

Me: “Sir, if you have an issue with me treating this man with the same respect that I would have given you had you merely stepped to the back of the line, then you can leave.”

(The customer makes more comments on how I’ve been brainwashed by the [racial slurs].)

Me: “Have a nice day, sir.” *turns to [Customer #1]* “It’s on the house.”

([Customer #2] threw his arms in the air and continued screaming until the owner forced him out the door.)

Unfiltered Story #105183

, , | Unfiltered | February 9, 2018

I went to a major taco restaurant with my son. We got our food and sat down. I started to think about how much less the check was than I was expecting and so I looked at the receipt. They hadn’t charged me for my meal, so I went to the counter to pay.

Me (handing her the receipt): Hi, I wasn’t charged for my meal.
Cashier: Um, what?
Me: I want to pay. You guys forgot to charge me.
Cashier (looking frightened): Let me get my manager.
Me: Okay.

She takes my receipt to the manager and they talk animatedly for around a minute. The manager, carrying the receipt, comes over to the cash register.

Manager: We’ve actually never had anyone come back to say they weren’t charged.
Me: Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. I’m sure it affects your numbers when that happens.
Manager: What I’d like to do is give you your meal as a thank you for being such an honest person.
Me: Are you sure? I’m happy to pay!
Manager (smiling): I’m sure!
Me (smiling back): Thanks!! I’ll just save that money for the next time I come here.

The Latest Series Is Pokémon: Budgeting And Accounting

(I’m in a store that sells Pokémon cards, and I overhear this conversation between two little boys:)

Boy #1: ” Uh-oh. These ones cost more than the others!”

Boy #2: “It’s okay; I budgeted for this.”

Interview Technique Is Lacking An Interview

, , , , , , , | Working | November 8, 2017

(I have just finished an interview, so I am wearing a suit and nice shoes as well as carrying a laptop. I decide to stop in a well-known coffee shop to get a tea and a bagel. I sit down at an empty table to eat and play a game on my phone, with only a handful of customers in the store. A well-dressed woman walks up to me.)

Woman: “Hi.”

Me: “Hello?”

Woman: “Do you need a phone charger?”

Me: *confused* “No, thanks… Do you?”

(The woman shakes her head but doesn’t move. After a moment…)

Woman: “Could you move over there?” *points to a different table*

Me: *now really confused* “Uh, no? I’m fine right here.”

Woman: “You know, you aren’t making a very good first impression.”

Me: “Neither are you.”

Woman: *with a rude tone, points to clipboard in hand* “I’m marking this down, I hope you know.”

Me: “For what?”

(With a shocked expression, the woman turned around and disappeared into the back room. I figured that someone had an interview scheduled that day and the woman assumed I was the candidate. If that’s the case, it was pretty rude to not even introduce herself or ask me if I was there for the interview.)
