Playing (Hunger) Games With Your Orders

| Melbourne, VIC, Australia | Food & Drink, Movies & TV

(I work at a coffee shop on my university campus. This happens way more often than it should, especially if my friends drop by when I’m working:)

Me: “All right, one regular soy mocha latte. Can I get a name for the order?”

Customer: “Primrose Everdeen.”

(A few minutes later:)

Coworker: “Okay, regular soy mocha latte for…” *he reads the name on the cup* “…aww, Christ. Primrose Everdeen?

Customer’s Friend: *at the top of her lungs* “I VOLUNTEER!”

Coworker: “You guys realise that stopped being funny last year, right?”

(I am another customer in this story standing at the drink counter stirring my coffee when two drinks come ready at the same time. Despite the drinks being different sizes, very different contents, and called out with both to a shop quiet enough to be heard easily, both customers reach for the same drink.)

Customer #1: “Yours is the grande.”

Customer #2: “Are you sure?”

Customer #1: “Yeah, I had a tall.”

Customer #2: “I guess I forgot what my regular is.”

Allergic To Common Sense, Part 3

(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.”
