What A Sweet Old Bag

, | UK | Bizarre, Crazy Requests

(During the night shift at the restaurant I work at, a customer pulls up.)

Customer: “I’ll get a cheeseburger, a small [Soda], and some chips, please.”

Me: “Okay, will that be all for today?”

Customer: *deadpan* “Well, could you dip the bag in chocolate? Can you do that?”

(I laugh, because the customer made a direct quote from comedian Tim Hawkins who has a joke about how people never eat healthily at fast food places.)

Me: “I see that you watch Tim Hawkins!”

(There is an awkward silence on the other end of the phone.)

Customer: “Uh… who’s Tim Hawkins?”

Me: “Never mind.”

Customer: “But can you dip the bag in chocolate?”

Me: “No, sir, we can’t.”

(To this day I have no idea whether it was an actual, insane request, or if somebody with a sense of humor decided to mess with my mind.)

Always Fresh Things To Complain About

| Independence, MO, USA | Family & Kids, Food & Drink

(I’m working register at night when a woman who appears to be in her early thirties comes in and orders a meal with fries and chicken nuggets. There are already fries made but we are waiting on the nuggets to finish cooking.)

Customer: “Can I get older fries and nuggets? I don’t want my daughter to burn her mouth.”

Me: “Well we can get you older fries but we have to wait on chicken nuggets to finish cooking.”

Customer: “But my daughter could burn her mouth if it’s fresh.”

Me: “You could wait a bit before giving it to her.”

(She continued to be mad about getting fresh chicken nuggets until she left. The first and only time I’ve seen someone complain about getting fresh food.)

That Will Not Be All

| Norman, OK, USA | At The Checkout, Food & Drink

(I am working drive-thru one night when we serve partial breakfast and lunch. Customer shows up in my camera and my sensor.)

Me: “Hi, how can I help you?”

(Customer ignores me but I’m used to this by now.)

Customer: “Hello?!”

Me: “Hello! Can I help you?”

Customer: “I want a biscuit and a hash brown.”

Me: “Is that gonna be all for you today?”

Customer: “Actually make it two biscuits.”

Me: “All right, will that be all?”

Customer: “Yeah!”

(She pulls around after I tell her the total and hands me her card. I swipe it and it runs through just fine.)

Customer: “Hey, don’t you have a special going on for a biscuit and a hash brown?

Me: *handing back her card and receipt* “Yes, ma’am, we are. I took the liberty of giving you that special, along with the second biscuit you wanted.”

Customer: “Can you add a second hash brown and get me the food for cheaper?”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but you’re order has already been paid for. If you want the second hash brown, it’d have to be at full price as I’d have to make a whole new order.”

(Her boyfriend in the car gets my attention, trying to speak over her.)

Customer #2: “Why don’t you give us a refund in the biscuit, and then ring up the special that way?”

Me: “I’m sorry, I can’t do that. I’m not supposed to give out refunds.”

Customer #1: “Well, why didn’t you tell me at the speaker that if I got a second hash brown, I’d be getting it cheaper?!”

Me: “That’s not what you told me you wanted…”
