Annoying In Increasing Orders Of Magnitude

, , , , , | Right | March 13, 2018

(I am at a fast food restaurant that calls out order numbers when they’re ready.)

Employee: “412.”

Customer: “Is this mine?”

Employee: “Are you order number 412?”

Customer: “No.”

Employee: “Then it’s not yours.”

(This conversation repeats verbatim for the next four orders and I can tell the employee is losing his patience.)

Employee: “What is your order number, ma’am?”

Customer: “I don’t know.”

(The employee is able to find her order, which is the next one up. When she takes her order and leaves, the employee sighs in relief.)

Employee: “418.” *my order*

Me: “Is this mine?”

(He got a chuckle out of that. Keep being awesome, service employees; we appreciate it more than you know.)

Unfiltered Story #107069

, , | Unfiltered | March 13, 2018

(I work at a fast food restaurant where we have half price shakes throughout the summer after 8 pm. It’s mid October and the deal ended August 31. A customer comes in around 8:30 pm.)

Me: “Hi! Welcome to [restaurant]! My name is [My Name]! What can I get for you tonight?”

Customer: “Yeah, I’d like [about eight different shakes].”

Me: “Okay! What size would you like for those?”

Customer: “They’ll all be medium.”

Me: “Alright! Anything else tonight?”

Customer: “No that’s it.”

Me: “Okay! Your total is going to be [total]! Thank you for choosing [restaurant]! Well have it right out.”

Customer: “Excuse me?! Shakes are half price after eight o’clock.”

Me: “Oh. I’m sorry but that deal actually ended in August.”

Customer: “What?! I was here LAST NIGHT and my shakes were all half off. I want to speak to a manager RIGHT NOW!”

Me: *wants to bang head on the wall*

Waiting For Wicked Wings Is Widiculous

, , , , , | Right | March 9, 2018

(I am lining up at popular southern-style fried chicken chain to place our order when this exchange occurs:)

Staff: “I’m sorry, sir, but there will be a five-minute wait for Wicked Wings.”

Customer: “What?! Five minutes! Why the hell would it take five minutes?!”

Staff: “We don’t keep a lot pre-cooked, so it’s always fresh for our valued customers like you, sir.”

Customer: “Well, I’m not waiting.”

Staff: “I can replace the wings with regular chicken pieces for you, sir.”

Customer: “NO! I want Wicked Wings.”

Staff: “So, there will be a five-minute wait on the wings, sir—”

Customer: “I’M NOT WAITING!”

Staff: “Like I said, I can substitute regular pieces for you.”


Staff: “I… I don’t know what to tell you, sir. Either you wait for wings or accept a substitution. I can’t bend time.”

Customer: *turns almost purple from anger* “HOW DARE YOU SPEAK TO ME LIKE THAT?! GET ME YOUR MANAGER!”

(By this time everyone has had it with this idiot man-child, but it’s a little kid who speaks up. The kid behind me says to his mum:)

Kid: “You would smack my bum if I shouted like that, Mum.”

Mum: “Yes. Yes, I would.”

(That’s all it took for me. I laughed so much I snorted, and idiot man-child left without ordering his food. I let the kid and his mum go ahead of me because I still couldn’t compose myself to place an order. Well done, little kid. And idiot man-child, thank you for making me laugh harder than I have in a long time.)

I Have 20/20-Dollar Vision

, , , , | Right | March 9, 2018

(My father has been blind since he was a toddler. Before he retires he runs a small snack bar in our local city hall. Since it is not uncommon for people to lie to him about the denominations of bills he is given, he has a “verifier” machine he can run money through that tells him the amount of the currency. After I graduate, I spend my summer working for him. My father is on break, and a man approaches me with several items. He hands me a dollar bill.)

Customer: “That’s a twenty.”

Me: “No… This is a dollar.”

Customer: *becoming upset* “Well, I didn’t know you could see!” *storms out, leaving his items behind*

Me: *dumbfounded*

Shaking Things Up With Your Order

, , , , , , | Working | March 7, 2018

(I only live a few minutes away from my work, so I stop there frequently for a bite to eat. The previous night, when I was working, the machine that handles all of the mochas, lattes, etc., was broken, so I keep that in mind when I find a coupon with a deal giving you a free coffee drink when you buy a big sandwich. After I pull up to the speaker and get the greeting…)

Me: “Is your coffee machine working?”

Coworker: “Yes.”

Me: “Okay, I’d like to get [sandwich] and a mint mocha.”

(I get the total, pay at the first window, and go to the second window to get my food. I get my sandwich, but when my second coworker hands me my drink…)

Me: “Uh, I asked for a mint mocha, not a mint shake.”

(My second coworker looks a little confused, and the shift manager comes over to see what the deal is.)

Me: “I asked for a mocha, not a shake.” *holds up the wrong drink*

Manager: “Oh, the machine is broken.”

Me: “I even asked if it was working before I ordered.”

Manager: “I don’t have the smartest people on my shift today.” *walks away*

(I drove home with my correct sandwich and incorrect drink, still a little confused. I went to the survey website and gave my two cents about my experience, but I really couldn’t get too annoyed, as it was a free drink.)
