A New Form Of Reverse Psychology

, | CO, USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre, Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

(I am working the drive thru and we were about to close. I see a car full of high-schoolers pull up to the window and the whole car is backwards. I go see what’s going on.)

Customer: “I bet you haven’t seen a car drive backwards through your drive thru before!”

Me: “No, sure haven’t!”

Customer: “So this means we get free food then right? For being original?”

Me: “Um, no. Nice try.”

Customer: “Okay. Had to try.” *drives off in reverse*

Listen For Those Nuggets Of Information

, | UK | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I take orders in the drive-thru.)

Me: “Hi, can I take your order, please?”

Customer: “Can I have a large chicken nugget meal, please?”

Me: “Sure, what drink?”

Customer: “LARGE. CHICKEN. NUGGET. MEAL.”

Me: “Yeah. What drink?”

(The customer rolls their eyes and sighs before making some comment to the passenger about ‘kids these days.’)

Customer: “Chicken—”

Me: “Yes. I heard you say large chicken nugget meal the first time. I asked you what drink?”

Customer: *laughs* “Oh. Coke!”

Me: “Any dips?”

Customer: “COKE!”

Something Fishy Going On Here

| NY, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I work in a sandwich shop. It is just my boss and me in the shop when a customer comes in.)

Me: “Hi! What can I get for you today?”

Customer: “Hi. Could I please have a medium tuna sandwich, please?”

Me: “Tuna fish? All right.”

Customer: “Wait, it’s tuna FISH?”

(Thinking she thought I meant simply slabs of fish, I explained what our product was.)

Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t mean just pieces of fish. It’s tuna salad – albacore tuna fish mixed with mayonnaise and celery.”

Customer: “Yeah, but it’s still fish, and I hate fish. Why don’t you sub shops just have tuna? Why is it always tuna fish everywhere I go?”

(My boss had to make the woman’s sandwich, because I couldn’t fathom what was going on.)

Cashier: “Okay, here’s your receipt, sir. Your order number is 66.”

Me: “Huh. How many Order 66’s do you get through every day?”

Cashier: “Two, sometimes three.”

Me: “Wow, all those poor Jedi…”

Salad With A Side Order Of Obnoxiousness

| Jacksonville, Fl, USA | Bad Behavior, Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

(I am a waitress at a pizza restaurant. We use a number system to place orders. Each ticket gets a number to put on their table for us to bring the food to them. My boss, the cook, has two different orders of the same salad, one small for table four, and one large for table five, which is supposed to be shared.)

Boss: *handing me the large* “This one goes to table four.”

(I take the salad to the table and come back to pick up the next order.)

Boss: *handing me the small* “Actually, this one goes to four. The other one goes to five.”

Me: “I took the other one to four already!”

Boss: “Then go get it back!”

(I go over to the table with the new salad. Luckily they have not eaten it yet.)

Me: “I’m very sorry, but I gave you the wrong salad. This one’s yours.”

Customer: “What’s the difference?”

Me: “The one I gave you is a large. It’s supposed to be shared. You ordered a small. The large is for the next table over.”

Customer: “Oh, okay.”

(The customer takes the small salad from me. I reach for the large salad, and the customer picks up her fork, licks it, and sticks it in the salad.)

Customer: “You gave it to me, so it’s mine. Where’s my pizza?”

Customer At The Other Table: “We’re still going to need that salad.”

(I was speechless. I went back to my boss and told him what happened. He then yelled at me for not stopping the customer. Then he refused to make another salad. Table five came back inside to get a refund on the salad, which meant the boss had to come over. I got yelled at again for ‘not making them pay for it.’ I quit after that.)
