Chocolate Chip Slip

| Pigeon Forge, TN, USA | Food & Drink, Funny Names

(I am a cashier behind a counter at a cafe when a middle-aged man walks in.)

Me: “Yes, what can I get for you?”

Customer: “A packet of chocolate and a chip milkshake.”

Me: “Pardon?”

Customer: “Packet of chocolate and a chip milkshake!”

Me: “Don’t you mean—”

Customer: *really loudly* “A packet of chocolate and a chip milkshake! How hard is that—” *realizes* “—Sorry.”

Me: “Packet of chips and a chocolate milkshake?”

(Customer nodded and collected his food. I’ve never seen anyone rush to their table so quickly!)

Working With The Yes-Men

| Stockholm, Sweden | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I’m working at a popular café and serving customers as usual when an older man walks in.)

Customer: “I would like a sandwich, please.”

Me: “Of course, sir. What kind of bread would you like?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Me: “What kind of bread would you like, sir?”

Customer: “Yes.”

(At this point I assume he is an alcoholic so I just take a chance on which bread he wanted.)

Me: “Okay, what would you like on your sandwich, sir?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Me: “What would you like on your sandwich, sir?”

Customer: “White bread.”

(This goes on until I can finally understand what he wants.)

Me: “Goodbye, sir. Have a nice day.”

Customer: “No.”

Splitting Hairs Over The Price

| New Zealand | Food & Drink, Liars & Scammers

(A customer at my cafe comes up to the counter, scone in hand, looking angry.)

Customer: “There is a hair in my scone. I want a refund.”

Me: “I’m so sorry for that. Let me sort that out for you.”

(I return a minute later, apologizing again and giving her a refund. As she walks off several staff members look at the hair, which is sitting in the jam she spread herself, not baked in, and could only have come from her head.)

Coworker: “She was complaining about the price earlier when ordering.”

(As it turned out, she had complained but bought the scone anyway, had her fill, then placed her own hair in the jam before asking for her refund.)
