I pulled up to the speaker at a local fast-food restaurant and ordered a barbecue chicken sandwich “without mayonnaise, please.” The clerk said, rather condescendingly, “The barbecue chicken sandwich doesn’t have mayo, ma’am. It comes with barbecue sauce.”

I drove up to the window; the clerk took my money and then, as I watched, she suddenly yelled to the cook in the back, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” I heard the cook yell, “What?” She said, “That’s a barbecue chicken sandwich! Why are you putting mayo on it?!” The cook yelled, “Well, what are you SUPPOSED to put on a barbecue chicken sandwich?”

When the clerk came back to the window, I said, “That’s why I order it without mayo.”

The Write-Up Is Complimentary

(Two young girls approach me and ask to use our store phone to call their parents since their phone died. I let them dial but since they are calling long distance it doesn’t work. The only way to contact their parents is on their dead cell phones so I give the girls my phone charger and let them charge it behind the counter. They go on a few rides and come back, thanking me profoundly. A few days later my team lead approaches me.)

Team Lead: “Two girls left you a good reviews on Tuesday.”

Me: “Oh, really? Wow, I’ve never gotten that before.”

Team Lead: “Yes, but they say you let them charge their phone behind the counter?”

Me: “Oh, yes.” *explains situation*

Team Lead: “Okay, I see, but we’re still not allowed to do that. I’m going to have to write you up!”

Me: “But what about their compliments? No harm was done and I made their day!”

Team Lead: “It’s the rules, sorry.”

(So I was written up BUT I was also awarded by my supervisor two free tickets as a reward for the compliments. Way to confuse your workers.)

Keeping Manners Fast Effective

(I am 15, and getting out of the car that I drove on Tomorrowland Speedway. I proceed to thank the employee that is helping me get out of the car.)

Employee: “Have a good day.”

Me: “Thanks. You, too.”

Employee: “I’m sorry, what did you say?”

Me: “I said thanks. You have a good day, too.”

(He smiles, and seems more cheery. Later on, I’m waiting at the front of the ride for my mom to get my sister in her stroller, and the same employee sees me.)

Employee: *walks over* “Hey, you’re the super nice kid!”

(He proceeds to write a fast-pass out for my whole family to use at any ride, any time, as well as giving everyone in my party cool little “driver’s licenses.”)

Me: *surprised* “Thank you so much!”

Employee: “No problem.” *to my mom* “He’s a good kid.”

(The employee, whose name I noticed was Raul, walked off. Wherever you are, Raul, I want to thank you for showing me that manners still matter!)

This Is Ending ‘Up’ Badly

(I’m working in a small thrift store where we sell items for generally pretty cheap when a middle-aged man walks in and starts shopping.)

Customer: *puts a jacket on the counter* “I need you to check the price of this now.”

Me: *after scanning the item* “Okay, sir, this jacket comes up to 19.99.”

Customer: “19.99? The rack says 3.99, though.”

Me: “It’s a 3.99 and up rack so the prices could vary.”

Customer: “It says 3.99, though.”

Me: “It’s a 3.99 and up rack, sir.”

Customer: *walks over and grabs five more identical jackets* “Price check these.”

Me: “These are all of the same jacket they’ll all be the same price.”

Customer: “But it says 3.99.”

Me: “It’s an ‘and-up’ rack; the prices vary.”

Customer: “So it’s now 3.99?”

Me: “No, sir.”

Customer: “Hmm, okay…” *dumps everything on the counter and walks out*

I don’t know why, but while I was in third grade I had two umbrellas in my book-bag. They were the kinds that pop out at the push of a button. We were riding home on the school bus and it was raining heavily outside. My friend who was seated next to me was concern about the fact that she did not have an umbrella. I felt that sense I had two, I can lend her one. One of them was almost brand new. The other was older. In deciding, I felt that it would be polite to lend my friend the new one.

She got off at her stop before my stop came. As I was about to get off, I first pointed my umbrella out to open it. I pushed the button.

It did what it was suppose to. It did open up. Except that it kept going like I had a trick umbrella like the Penguin. I had to run out into the rain the re-attach it to the base. The kids on the bus laughed at my expense. Even I had to laugh. I realized at that moment that it was a good thing I lent my friend the new one.
