Parenting Isn’t A Cake Walk

| Hamilton, ON, Canada | Right | February 27, 2012

(A mother and her son are sampling several kinds of ice cream, trying to decide what kind of ice cream cake they want. Note that all flavors are clearly labelled with their contents.)

Customer: “Are there nuts in the pralines ‘n’ cream ice cream? My son is allergic to nuts.”

Me: “Yes, pralines are nuts. You did not tell me he has a nut allergy. How’s your son, is he okay? Should I call an ambulance? Do you need help?”

Customer: “So, about my cake…I’m still not really sure what flavors I want. How can I order my cake now? My son’s face is getting itchy.”

Me: “You should probably just go ahead and take him to the hospital. Can I call someone? Do you want to use my phone? How’s your son doing?”

Customer: “Yes, I should probably go to the hospital, but then, how will I order my cake? I want this cake. What should I do?”

Me: “Take a card and call us with a phone order later. You should get your son some help!”

Customer: “But, about my cake…”

(She finally takes him to the hospital. Luckily, it is close by!)

Be Careful What You Ask For, Part 5

| West Orange, NJ, USA | Right | November 15, 2011

(This takes place a few months before I leave for college. A lot of the kids working at the store are leaving for college soon, too. One of my coworkers has written “Tips for college kids” on the tip jar. A young mother walks in with her kids on a slow afternoon. After she reads the tip jar, this exchange happens.)

Customer: “Tips for college kids…I have a good tip. Stay away from tequila.”

Me: “Why’s that, ma’am?”

Customer: “I went through a lot of margaritas my freshman year. Now I can’t even look at tequila without feeling sick. Just stay away from it!”

Me: “Don’t worry ma’am. I’ll stick to vodka.”

(And yes, she did leave a nice tip!)
