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.)
