Promotionals Promote Them To Full Crazy

, , , , , | Right | November 30, 2017

(I work at a fast food restaurant. We do promotions every few months. We just ended one of our longer running promotions. I have a bit of a line, and after a minute am able to help the next guest.)

Me: “Hi, how are you today? What can I get for you?”

Customer: “Can I get [promotional item that ended]?”

Me: “I’m sorry; we don’t carry that anymore, as it was promotional. I have [similar item] that I can offer.”

Customer: “WHAT? THIS [PROMOTIONAL ITEM] HAS BEEN HERE FOREVER! F*** YOU GUYS!”

(She then proceeded to storm out of the store, leaving everyone in the restaurant to just gaze at the door, wondering what happened.)

A rr-eally Good Example

(I am in a high school biology class. We are learning about Punnett squares.)

Teacher: “You take the Dominant D gene and the Recessive r genes and slide them down the boxes, like this, to get DD Dr Dr rr. So, in a perfect world, out of four kids, parents who both have Dr genes would have one kid that displays the recessive gene.” *looks at [Student #1]* “Like [Student #1]’s freaking family, proving theoretical genealogy. Out of four kids, his parents had three brunette girls and one ginger boy. With how randomized genes can be, it’s utterly amazing his family actually exists.”

Wanted Anything… Except THAT

Waitress: “And what would you like to drink?”

Me: “I don’t know. Anything. Surprise me.”

(She gives me this devilish smile that makes me instantly feel like I’m going to regret this.)

Waitress: “So, just to clarify: you want anything?”

Me: “Yep. Go crazy.”

Waitress: “I’ll be right back.”

(She comes back a few minutes later and sets my drink down on the table. She has made me a “root beer” float with mint chocolate chip ice cream and rainbow sprinkles, only instead of using root beer she has mixed [Dark Soda], [Lemon Lime Soda], and fruit punch. And then, once I start drinking it, I realize there is a strip of bacon torn into pieces at the bottom. It is the grossest thing I’ve ever had, but I drink it, anyway, because I really did say, “Anything.” The waitress returns later to ask how everything is.)

Waitress: “Holy crap! You actually drank that?”

Me: “Yes. If you ever see me in here after this and I ask you to surprise me again, please slap me with a menu and make me actually pick something.”

(She brought me some chocolate milk to wash the taste down and didn’t charge me for the first drink, because, apparently, the fact that I actually drank it was the funniest thing ever to her and her coworkers.)

My mom and I have just arrived at the emergency room after being sent from a local fast ER over possible appendicitis. While we are getting checked in, an older man arrives.
Man: I’m having chest pain and pain in my arm.
Nurse: We’re taking you back immediately, sir please get in this wheelchair.
Man: No thanks, I’m good to walk.
Nurse: Please sir take a seat in the wheelchair.
Man: No, I insist I’m good to walk.
My Mom: Take a damn seat in the chair. If you’re having a heart attack do you really want to be walking right now.
He sat in the chair and grumbled while they took him away.

(This takes place in a pharmacy. Patient calls in, asking if we have a certain controlled substance in stock. We don’t, and the following ensues)
Patient: “What do you mean, you don’t have it? I’ve been getting it here for years.”
(I look up the patient’s profile. They haven’t filled it since January- it’s now July)
Me: “I’m sorry sir, it looks like we don’t have it. But if you could bring in your new prescription, we could enter it into our system and order the medication in for you. The order would take about two days.”
Patient: “Two days? What do you mean? I need it now! Today!!”
Me: “Unfortunately that’s how long it would take to get this medication in.”
Patient: “Do you want me to be in pain until then?? Why don’t you have it in stock? I get it here all the time, so it should always be in stock!”
Me: “It looks like you last picked this up in January, and we’ve not had any prescriptions since then. It’s not a common medication, so it’s not something we have on automatic order if no one’s getting it.”
Patient: “BUT I GET IT!! I’VE GOTTEN THIS MEDICATION HERE FOR YEARS! WHY DON’T YOU HAVE IT? ORDER IT FOR ME RIGHT NOW!”
Me: “Unfortunately we cannot order in a controlled substance without already having the physical prescription, so I can’t order this until you bring in the prescription. We haven’t had any prescriptions for it recently, so we haven’t ordered it.”
Patient: “WHAT??? WHAT DO YOU MEAN?? I ALWAYS GET IT SO IT SHOULD ALWAYS BE IN STOCK!”
(This circular conversation went on for the next twenty minutes, and I had to hang up on him because he started cursing at me. Turns out he did bring in the prescription after my shift ended, and the pharmacist made sure to tell him not to treat his employees like that again!)
