The Ending Is All Rapped Up

, , , , , | Right Romantic | June 24, 2022

I’m working the front of house. I’m dressed smartly as the restaurant is reasonably formal — mid- to high-end food and prices. As our system is down, I’m carrying a clipboard with the reserved list, so it’s pretty obvious that I’m working.

A woman my age walks in alone; no one seems to be following her.

Me: “Good morning. Do you have a reservation?”

Woman: “Oh, no. Do I need one?”

Me: “We do have some tables available. How many are dining today?”

Woman: “Well, it’s—”

A guy dressed in a sideways cap, tracksuit, and very bright trainers (sneakers) walks in and speaks to me.

Guy: “Hey, what you talking to her for?”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Woman: *Sighs* “He works here. He was trying to find us a table.”

Guy: “Hmm, I know what these guys are like, though.”

Me: “Was it just you two today?”

Guy: “Yeah, find us a booth.”

Me: “We don’t have ‘booths’ but I can certainly find you somewhere private.”

I stuck them way back away from view. I checked on them. The guy was on his phone and it all felt very awkward. We got busy quickly, and I was asked to move on a guy out front who was disturbing our guests

Surprise, surprise, it was the guy from earlier. I could smell what he was smoking from a mile off. I eventually managed to get him to move around the corner, but he didn’t go without a fight.

I managed to miss the theatrics, but apparently, he stormed out before the bill was paid. I checked on the woman he was with, and she was pretty calm.

Turns out this was some sort of last chance/reconciliation dinner. She told me she had some amazing-sounding job offer out of the country, but he wanted to stay to work on his rap career.

I bought her a dessert. She left a tip and I wished her well.

A couple of weeks later, we got a card through the door thanking me for the support and a small note that she was on the way to the airport… alone.

I hope she does great.

Some People Take Sandwiches Way Too Seriously

, , | Right | June 24, 2022

I work in a sub shop and it’s half an hour before closing. We have a different discounted Sub Of The Day every day.

Customer: “Can I have a [Sub Of The Day]?”

Me: “I’m sorry, but we’re out of the ingredients to make that sub.”

Customer: “Oh! Then you have to give me anything I want at the same discounted price!”

Me: “That’s not how it works, sir.”

Then, he called me a b**** and said he’d be calling the police and having me arrested.

I did not get arrested.

Sure, Keep Pounding, That Worked Great The First Time

, , , | Right | June 23, 2022

We are short-staffed, so we close the lobby so we can focus on the drive-thru and getting orders out faster.

It’s just me and my two coworkers running the drive-thru. A customer parks right next to the front door and starts honking their car horn. I look over, shrug my shoulders, and keep working because it’s the lunch rush on a Saturday afternoon. Then, the woman gets out of her car, comes charging at the front door, and then pounds on the window when she finds out the door is locked.

My coworker comes over.

Coworker: “What’s going on with her?”

Me: “I don’t know, but she’s acting really crazy, and I don’t really want to let her inside.”

My coworker points to the drive-thru window to let her know that we can help her over there. Her husband comes to the door and pounds on it also. My coworker who was working in the kitchen gets fed up with them because they are not giving up and goes to see what they wanted. He comes back shaking his head.

Me: “What did they want?”

Kitchen Coworker: “A honey packet for their nuggets. All of that for some honey that we are apparently out of. Sometimes I really hate my job.”

The Couponator 35: Dog Food Day Afternoon

, , , , , | Right | June 23, 2022

I work at a pet store. Sundays are scary when the after-church crowd shows up. A customer lays a bag of dog food and eight cans of dog food on the counter. He gives me a coupon for $5 off a bag of food and fifty cents off a can of dog food.

I ring him up, and he flips out.

Customer: “You overcharged me!”

I call for the supervisor on duty. She reads the coupon.

Supervisor: “This coupon is good for fifty cents off only one can of dog food.”

Customer: “So, you are telling me that if I buy a can of dog food, go to my car, come back, and buy another can of dog food, go to my car, come back, and buy another can of dog food, that this is what I have to do to get the fifty cents off a can of dog food like the coupon says?”

Supervisor: “Well, actually, once you use a coupon, we keep it, and you can’t use it again.”

Customer: “What the h*** is this bulls***? You’re trying to get one over on me! I’d go out of business if I pulled this s*** on a customer. I am going to report you!”

Then, he left with his purchase. He had railed for so long that by the time he was done, there was a long line at the register. Everybody just looked stunned.

Quick! Hit Her With The Sales Pitch!

I work for a skincare company. I answer the phone.

Woman: “I found your number in my contacts. Why is it there?”

I take some information from her.

Me: “I have no idea why we’re in your phone, ma’am. I’ve never spoken with you, your phone number has never called our office, and your name is not in our system.”

Woman: “Well… what does your company do?”

I explain the services we offer.

Me: “Is there some skincare concern you’re looking to discuss?”

Woman: “No, not at all. None of that sounds familiar, and I’m not concerned about anything!”

Me: “Then you should probably just delete our number from your phone.”

She got angry that I was not working harder to figure out why SHE put OUR number in HER contacts list.
