I went to a fast food restaurant this morning. They have three french toast sticks for a dollar.

Me: I want two orders of the french toast sticks, please

The cashier puts in my order and it comes up as $6.

Me: No, should be $2 plus tax. I wanted two orders of the french toast sticks. They are three sticks for one dollar. So, $2 for six sticks.

She then rings me up for 18 sticks, which came up as $6 again!

Me: NO, NO! I want TWO orders of the french toast sticks. It is $2!

She was so confused and could not understand what I was trying to order. I finally had to talk to the manager. He had no problems understanding what I wanted to order.

 

Fast(Food) Becoming A Problem

, , , , , , | Working | June 28, 2017

(I very rarely hit up fast food restaurants as I don’t care for their food. I had to rush out the door this morning, though, and decide to grab some breakfast as I have a long day ahead of me.)

Me: “Hello! Can I get a number 10, the two-sausage breakfast burritos, please?”

Worker: “A number 2? Okay.”

Me: “No, sorry, a number 10.”

Worker: “Oh. Okay. We have ranch, bbq, and honey mustard. What kind of sauce would you like?”

Me: “For the burritos? Hot sauce, if you have any.”

Worker: “Hot or mild?”

Me: “Hot, please.”

Worker: “Mild?”

Me: *just wanting to get out of here at this point* “Mild is fine.”

Worker: “What to drink?”

Me: “An iced coffee with sugar free vanilla, please.”

Worker: “A caramel coffee. Anything else?”

Me: “No, sorry, an iced coffee with sugar free vanilla… That’s everything.”

Worker: “Okay, your total is [amount much higher than the menu price].”

Me: *hits head on steering wheel*

Digital Video Dumdums

, , , , , | Right | May 29, 2017

(I used to work for a relatively popular video rental chain prior to it going out of business. I am pulling up my own account to see if I am about to have an overdue rental of my own. A customer in her late-40s or early-50s has been browsing the rentals.)

Customer: *approaches my coworker with a sealed new movie* “Hi, I’d like to buy this.”

Coworker: “Yes, ma’am, no problem. Just to let you know, we do have extremely high-quality used versions of this exact movie, and for what you’re paying for it new, you could get three used movies.”

Customer: “Oh, no, I don’t buy used movies.”

Coworker: “That’s understandable. Sometimes the quality of the DVD isn’t what you’d hoped, scratches, yadda ya.”

Customer: “Oh, no, not that. I just don’t want my DVD player to get a virus.”

(At this point, I stop what I’m doing, because I cannot possibly have heard that. I turn my head just a bit to look at her. Customer has the most serious expression I’ve ever seen, and my coworker is currently trying to see if she’s being legitimate.)

Coworker: “DVD… viruses?”

Customer: “Yes, like computer viruses. You don’t know what sort of nastiness people let get into their DVD player, and I don’t want mine getting corrupted by anything!”

(At this point, I have to turn away from the register I’m on, because I’m about to start chuckling, and I would prefer not to be rude. I busy myself with the rental drop box while my coworker continues the struggle.)

Coworker: “…absolutely, ma’am. Those DVD viruses can be an absolute hassle, and you’re doing well to keep yourself protected.”

(He finishes ringing her up as I finally get myself in check.)

Coworker: “You have a wonderful day, ma’am.”

Customer: “You too, young man!”

(She leaves. We just look at each other.)

Me: “If I hadn’t been here, I’d never believe this.”
