(I have just started working at a new job, and the training person is trying to get our badges so we can go in and out of the building without having to bother the security staff.)

Trainer: “Let me see if I got an email from Pete. The… badge guy.”

Me: “In this world there are goodge guys and badge guys.”

Trainer: “You’re a punny one, aren’t you?”

Coworker: “That’s illegal! She’s going to the pun-itentiary!”

A co-worker was checking out a guest who had a toddler in a stroller who was playing with some hot chocolate. He was a mess. It was extremely cute. The cashier mentioned it as I stood nearby. The mom said he got hot chocolate for going potty in public. I said, “He got hot chocolate for going potty in public? Where was this when I was in college?” We all had a good laugh. The boy kept making a mess of his hot chocolate.

A Budding Order

(I am training a trainee on drive-thru, and we both get a really weird request. We work in a chicken restaurant where we sell chicken sliders.)

Trainee: “Thank you for choosing [Restaurant]! How may I help you?”

Customer: “Yes, I would like an eight-piece meal, extra crispy, with mashed potatoes and mac and cheese.”

Trainee: “Okay, anything else?”

Customer: “Yeah, and I need two of those chicken buddies. You know, the chicken buddy things that you can get?”

Trainee: “I’m sorry. Could you please repeat that?”

Customer: “Oh, I wanted to get two chicken buddies with that, too.”

Trainee: *to me* “What the heck is a chicken buddy?!”

Me: *to customer* “I’m sorry, sir, but you were looking to get two slider sandwiches?”

Customer: “Yeah, the chicken buddies.”

Me: “We carry the slider sandwiches. Is that okay?”

Customer: “Yeah, that’s fine. I’ll take that kind of chicken buddy.”

(The trainee is confused but goes back and makes the sandwiches.)

Me: “Okay, your total is [total]. Please pull around.”

(The trainee puts a bag of sandwiches on counter for me to hand out.)

Me: *to trainee* “Thanks, chicken buddy!”

(Our credit union starts charging customers fees for accounts being inactive.)

Customer: “Hi, I got charged fees and I want them all reversed. I wasn’t aware that I was being charged.”

Me: “I’m sorry; I can’t reverse the fees. We sent out letters at the beginning of the year summarizing our new fees.”

Customer: “Well, I don’t usually read mail from you, because I don’t think it’s important!”

Me: “…”

Me: “Would you like to make that a meal or would you just like the sandwich?”

Customer: “What comes with the meal?”

Me: “The same thing that has come with a fast food meal since their debut in the industry…”

There was even a PICTURE of the fries and drink that you got by purchasing a meal on the drive-thru menu board
