(this happened while im eating at a local fast food i used to work at)

customer: this burger isnt cooked at all i want it remade.

manager: sorry about that sir we will get a fresh one made right away, it will be about 5-7 minutes.

the customer, after about 2 minutes returns to counter claiming it is taking too long for his food to be made. and demands a refund. the manager obliges and gives him his money back.
the customer, now getting louder and more rude, demands that another apoligy is due.  the manager states that he already apoligized and tried remaking the meal, and while that wasnt good enough for said customer, refunded his money and didnt feel another apoligy was needed.  the customer grabs his soda and storms out, but not before he runs right into a full glass window, causing his soda to explode all over his face and clothes, he drops the soda and storms out the correct door, needless to say the hole store cracked up and karma worked rather quickly that day

Not In Line And Out Of Line, Part 3

(I’m standing in line to checkout at a local home furnishings store. It’s the holidays, so naturally the line is long even though both registers are going as quickly as they can despite many customers with large, complicated orders and many items needing to be wrapped. I overhear an employee nearby arguing with another customer.)

Customer: “But I need to check out now! That girl over there said she’d be right with me! My husband’s locked himself out of the house!”

Employee: “I understand you’re in a hurry, but I can’t allow you to jump the line. These other customers have been waiting patiently.”

Customer: “But there’s an empty register!”

Employee: “I’m sorry, but that one’s down for the moment. Please go back to the end of the line. They’ll be with you as soon as possible.”

Customer: “Why can’t you just check me out now? I’m in a hurry!”

Employee: “I understand that, but so are many other people. I’m sorry, there’s nothing I can do.”

(Throughout this whole exchange, the employee’s been nothing but polite even though the argument is clearly starting to frazzle her.)

Employee: “Look, I’ll make you a deal. I’ll check you out right now if you go to every single person in the line and explain to them why you’re getting to cut all of them.”

Customer: “I’m not going to do that!”

Employee: “Then please go to the end of the line. My coworkers will be with you as soon as they can.”

Customer: “Fine! You’ve just lost a sale!” *she storms out*

(The kicker was that even though the line was long, it was moving well. In the time she’d spent arguing with the employee, she probably could’ve paid and been out the door!)

My coworker and I are closing at a well-known sandwich shop. It’s a little after 10pm, so we’re cleaning but still open. An older lady comes through the drive thru.

Customer: Hello? Can you tell me if [cafe next to us] is still open?
Coworker: I’m fairly sure they’re closed, ma’am. We’re open and can get you something, though.
Customer: What about [fast food place]? Are they still open?
Coworker: I think so.
Customer: How do I get there?

And that’s how we ended up giving a customer directions to our competitor!

(I’m reading a book to a class of four- and five-year-olds. Many of them read the book several times last fall, so I’m curious to see if any of them remember.)

Me: “There was an old lady who swallowed some leaves; I don’t know why she swallowed some leaves, perhaps she’ll—”

Class: *in unison* “DIE.”

(Sneeze. The answer was sneeze.)

(A boy and girl are going around the neighborhood, trick-or-treating. The boy is dressed as a Jedi Knight, the girl as Princess Leia. They go up to one house and ring the bell. When the door opens.)

Kids: “Trick or treat!”

Boy: “May the force be with you!”

(The homeowner pulls back the bowl of candy, and gestures with his hand at the boy.)

Adult: “These aren’t the treats you’re looking for.”

(The girl started to cry.)
