I was working the line and a customer comes and asks ”what kind of beans are the black beans?” And as politely as possible I say “uh… Black beans?”

Unable To Ketchup With This Incompetence

, , , , | Working | March 15, 2018

One of the cooks at our local [Fast Food Place] has repeatedly messed up my order. I finally found out why one day.

I ordered a cheeseburger, no ketchup. They handed it to me with a special order note verifying it was made with no ketchup.

At home, I unwrapped it and lifted it to take a bite. Ketchup dripped onto my shirt. The burger not only had only ketchup (not even cheese), but it had at least six times the regular amount of ketchup!

I called. The manager spoke to the cook. I could hear him yelling, “BECAUSE THAT’S THE ONLY WAY A HAMBURGER TASTES GOOD!”

I Have 20/20-Dollar Vision

(My father has been blind since he was a toddler. Before he retires he runs a small snack bar in our local city hall. Since it is not uncommon for people to lie to him about the denominations of bills he is given, he has a “verifier” machine he can run money through that tells him the amount of the currency. After I graduate, I spend my summer working for him. My father is on break, and a man approaches me with several items. He hands me a dollar bill.)

Customer: “That’s a twenty.”

Me: “No… This is a dollar.”

Customer: *becoming upset* “Well, I didn’t know you could see!” *storms out, leaving his items behind*

Me: *dumbfounded*

(I am buying a bottle of a well-known brand of carbonated water, among other things. The cashier is probably in her 40s or 50s.)

Cashier: *as she’s ringing me up* “How is this different from regular water?”

Me: “It’s just carbonated water.”

Cashier: “Oh, okay. What flavor?”

Me: “No flavor, just water.”

Cashier: “So, it’s just water?”

Me: “Carbonated water. It was served a lot when I lived in Germany, and I really liked it.”

Cashier: “You lived in Germany? Wasn’t that hard?”

Me: “It was pretty fun, actually.”

Cashier: “But they didn’t speak English, did they?”

Me: “A lot of them did, but I also learned a lot of German over there.”

Cashier: “Oh, that sounds so hard. Whenever I hear those languages on TV, it just sounds like noise. I don’t know how anyone understands it.”

Me: *taking my receipt and slowly trying to detach myself from the conversation* “Well, the Germans manage.”

(For a few years now, several doctors have suspected that I have some form of an autoimmune disease, as I’ve had problems with excessive bleeding and joint pains most of my life. I’ve just been to a specialist, who, based on the limited information I had about my family’s medical history, concluded that the odds of me having a genetic disease are limited. I’m at my GP’s office, with a list from my mother. Note: My mother and I have the same GP, and I’ve been seeing her my whole life.)

GP: “I know you mother has [Condition #1], and you’re saying her sister has it as well?”
Me: “Yes, and another one of her sisters has [Condition #2]. Then I have a cousin with [move severe Condition #1], and another cousin with [more severe Condition #2]. My grandmother had [Condition #3], which her mother died of.”
GP: “Luckily, no one dies from [Condition #3] today. Is your grandmother still alive?”
Me: “No, but she died of old age and stubbornness.”
GP *chuckling* “Right. And this is all on your mother’s side?”
Me: “Yes.”
GP: *reading through the list again* “Well, I’ll send the information to [Specialist] and we’ll see if that’ll change her diagnosis. *somewhat jokingly* Let’s hope you get most of your genes from your father’s side.”
Me: “Really? Because Dad’s epileptic; his sister had breast cancer; they both have diabetes; and grandpa thinks he’s back in the 1950’s.”
