Should Have Gone With The First Order

, | Coruscant | April Fool's Day

(I work at a fast-food place on Coruscant. A couple of robed customers come up.)

Customer #1: “I’ll have the Boba Fettuccine pasta salad with some Sarlaactose-free dip, some Darth Tatertots, and a Grand Muffin Tarkins.”

Customer #2: “I’ll get the Obi-Wan-Kebab, a side of Chewbaklava, and some Qui-Gon-Ginger-snaps.

Me: “Okay, that all comes to 159 galactic credits.”

(The customer then does a weird hand movement.)

Customer #1: “This food is free.”

(As weird as it sounds, I feel compelled to agree with them.)

Me: “This food is free.”

Customer #2: “And you will give us coupons for future free meals.”

Me: “And I will give you coupons for future free meals.”

Customer #1: *really getting into it now* “And you will bring back the McRibba-The-Hutt—”

Customer #2: *interrupting* “Dude, c’mon. Even Yoda can’t bring that back.”

Customer #1: “Fiiiiine.” *to me* “Please let us know when our order is ready.”

Me: “Certainly, sir. I’ve put that order in for you.”

(They walk aside and I serve a few more customers, when I see that their order number has come up but not been collected. I turn to my coworker who prepared the order.)

Me: “Why didn’t those two guys collect their food?”

Coworker: “I don’t know. I called out ‘Order 66 is ready!’ but then they just went all pale and just ran out the door…”

Showing Eventual Medium Returns

| BC, Canada | At The Checkout, Food & Drink

(I am the assistant manager of a fast-food restaurant. We are currently running a promotion where you can get any size soft drink for only $1. I witness this exchange between a customer and my employee. The customer is shouting throughout this.)

Employee: “Hello, what can I get for you?”

Customer: “[Soda]!”

Employee: “Okay, just one [Soda]?”

Customer: “Diet [Soda]!”

Employee: “So that’s one diet [Soda]?”

Customer: “Yes!”

Employee: “Is that a medium size?”

Customer: “No! A [Soda] and diet [Soda]!”

Employee: “Oh, you want a [Soda] and a diet [Soda]?”

Customer: “Yes!”

Employee: “Okay, are they medium size?”

Customer: “Medium! The other large!”

Employee: “Which one?”

Customer: “Large [Soda]! Medium diet [Soda]!”

Employee: “Okay, is that all for you?”

Customer: “Yes!”

(He obtains his order and leaves.)

Me: *to employee* “That was way more complicated than it needed to be.”

This Is Why We’re In A Recession, Part 49

| TX, USA | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Money

(When a customer orders food, we write the order on a box and fill it up, call out the name of the customer, and make the transaction.)

Me: “[Name]!”

Customer: *sluggishly nods and comes over*

Me: “Hello there. Just 10 shrimp and a PowerAde?”

Customer: *not really paying much attention* “Yeah.”

Me: “All right, that’ll be $[total]. Swipe your card when you’re ready.”

Customer: *looks at pin-pad and swipes card*

Me: *bags up food and hands drink* “All right, you have a wonderful day!”

Customer: *looks at PowerAde* “Uh, I ordered a [Soda]?”

(Turned out that this guy wasn’t the name I called out, did not order shrimp whatsoever, and didn’t realize he had picked up the wrong order until the transaction was over, even after I had verbally asked him everything and he had a screen to confirm his order.)
