Me: “Hi, welcome to [fast food restaurant]; what can I get you?”

Customer: “I want the [discontinued sandwich].”

Me: “Oh, I’m really sorry, we actually don’t have that anymore—”

Customer: “WHAT!? I can’t believe this! I’m going to sue you! You can’t just stop serving things!”

Me: “Uh…”

Customer: *drives around to the window* “You better start giving me a BUNCH of free food! I’m calling my lawyer! This is an outrage!”

Me: *slowly closes the drive thru window as the guy continues to yell about how he’s going to sue the crap out of us for running out of a limite-time promotion* “Well. That just happened.”

Can’t Help Those Who Won’t Help Themselves

(I work in an arcade.)

Coworker: “Uh, [My Name], we need you for customer service.”

Me: *walks up to customer* “Hi! How can I help you, ma’am?”

Customer: “I just want to say that I am very upset right now. I had to stand in line for 15 minutes to get my tickets. I counted, and you had seven other employees behind the counter doing nothing.”

Me: “Well, ma’am, we only have our one register, and one person working at a time. Also, I don’t have seven employees working. We just had this one girl back here, since I had the other two employees with me.”

Customer: “You should not try to argue with a customer! There were seven people with green shirts back there doing nothing. I wasn’t this mad until I spoke with you!”

Me: “Okay, well, if there’s nothing else—”

Customer: “I just wanted to explain that I was angry about the line, and you’re making excuses. If I hit you in the arm, you wouldn’t care about my excuses!”

Me: *refraining from laughter* “Yes, you are correct. I was just trying to explain how the policies work with who takes tickets.”


Me: “My name is [My Name], and here is my general manager’s card. I’m sorry I cannot help you, or help that we have a line.”

It’s Gonna Be A Long And Lonely Christmas Without Me

(My husband and I are going through our ornaments and picking the ones that we would like to put on the Christmas tree.)

Me: *holds up a personalized ornament from when I was younger* “Look! This one says ‘Best Friends Forever’ but only has my name on it!”

Husband: “You are an introvert. You are your own best friend!”

You Have No Experiences Except This Bad One

(I’ve been to a few job interviews so far and still can’t get my first job. I’m fresh out of high school.)

Manager: “On your application, it states that you have no job experience.”

Me: “That is correct. I’ve been focused on my school work.”

Manager: “Well, I don’t hire people who don’t have any experience as a server or cashier. I need you to have at least a year of experience.”

(I am too stunned to say anything. Why would you ask me to come here if you weren’t even going to give me a job?)

Manager: “I know I asked you to come here for a job interview, but that’s because I just want to see who you are.”

(He goes through the rest of the questions and I just internally scream.)

Manager: “Well, it was nice meeting you, [My Name]. Hopefully I will see an application from you again.”

(I never did apply there again.)

Your Understanding Is Broken

(My son isn’t yet four years old. My husband’s stepmother is in the hospital, and his dad picks my son up from daycare. They are discussing this on the ride home.)

Son: “Nana broke her leg!”

Me: “Yes, she did, but the doctor is fixing her up, right?”

Son: “Yep, she’s in the hospital, and the doctor is going to put her broken leg back on!”

(I laughed, but I guess at four years old, the phrase “broken leg” could be confusing!)
