What’s Cold Is So Hot Right Now

, | Monroe, WI, USA | Right | January 15, 2016

(I work at a very well known fast food place and am almost always the order taker and cashier during night shifts. One of my regular customers always gets the same thing: large coffee, seven creams and seven sugars. One time she said she wanted to try the iced coffee we have and wanted her usual.)

Me: “So you have hot coffee and cold coffee in on order. Makes me think of Katy Perry.”

Customer: *laughs* “You’re right; I didn’t think of that.”

Me: *jokingly* “Next time you want to order this you should ask for a ‘Katy Perry Order.’”

Customer: “I might just do that!”

(A couple nights later:)

Me: “Thank you for stopping at [Restaurant]. Order when you’re ready!”

Customer: “Yeah. I’d like one Katy Perry order, please!”

(I smile at it to this day and she still comes through with that order.)

Doesn’t Appreciate The High Five

| OH, USA | Right | January 13, 2016

(I work as a cashier. Management is cracking down on miscounted drawers, so I’ve resolved to be extra careful when counting back change. This is my first customer of the day, an older woman.)

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

Customer: “Do you have any deals right now?”

Me: “We have [deal items] for a dollar from two to five.”

Customer: “Let me get three of those and a [dessert].”

Me: “Okay, ma’am, your total is $3.99.”

(The woman rummages through her purse, and then scowls.)

Customer: “I guess I’ll just have to give you this.”

(The woman hands me a $50 bill. My eyes go wide. We don’t store any twenties at the front, and my register had just been changed, so it only has fives and ones. I start counting back her change, checking twice to make sure I hadn’t screwed up the math on such a large movement of cash. I hand her her change. The woman sneers.)

Customer: “Really? All fives?”

Should Have Covered That In A Cheesy Training Video

| WI, USA | Working | January 13, 2016

(This was at a popular fast food restaurant as my friend was trying to order.)

Friend: “Hello, I’d like a double hamburger.”

Cashier: “Right, a double cheeseburger then.”

Friend: “No, I want a double hamburger.”

Cashier: “What is that?”

Friend: “A double cheeseburger with no cheese.”

Cashier: “So a hamburger is a cheeseburger with no cheese?”

Friend: “Yes.”

Cashier: *looks bewildered at this shocking discovery*

An Alarming First Day

| USA | Working | January 12, 2016

(I am at employee orientation, which basically means sitting in a break room for two hours filling out forms while supervised by a manager. It is very quiet when an employee comes rushing in.)

Employee: “[Manager]! [Manager]! How do you turn off the alarm for the play area?”

Manager: *face-palming* “Not again.”


| Parker, CO, USA | Right | January 9, 2016

(My mom and I are going through the drive through and we gave our usual order. My mom decides she wants a little more.)

Mom: *into the speaker* “I’d also like to add a crunchy soft taco, beef with no sour cream.”

Worker: “Ok, that’ll be… Wait, what type of beef taco did you want?”

Mom: *totally oblivious to the fact that she is contradicting herself* “CRUNCHY SOFT TACO, PLEASE!”

Worker: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but it isn’t possible for a taco to be crunchy and soft.”

Mom: “Oh, whoops! Well… forget it, then.”
