Throw In Some Goat Cheese While You’re At It

, | Australia | Bizarre, Crazy Requests, Food & Drink, Pets & Animals, Popular

(I work the night shift at a fast food restaurant making the orders. It is about 2 a.m. and my coworker is taking an order in the drive-thru at the speaker box and I’m listening in.)

Customer: *incoherent rambling with the word “goat” in there somewhere*

Coworker: “Sorry, I can’t understand you; can I take your order at the window?”

Coworker: *to me after taking their order* “They want to know if you can make a salad for their goat.”

Me: *laughing* “I guess I can do that. This is the first time I’ve made an order for a goat.”

(They had a goat in the back seat of their car and gave it the salad. On my way home from work in the morning, I found the goat tied to a power pole. As it turned out, it wasn’t their goat. Luckily, I found its owner and it got home safely.)

Coupon And On And On, Part 3

, | Canada | Extra Stupid, Popular

(An older customer walks up to my cash register and hands me a coupon. I prepare to ring it in when I notice it’s for an item I am unfamiliar with. I am about to ask my coworker next to me about it when I notice another restaurant’s logo on it.)

Me: “Sir, this is an [Other Restaurant] coupon.”

Customer: “Is it expired?”

Me: “No. It’s for a different restaurant.”

Customer: “So, it’s no good?”

Me: “I’m sure it’s good, but at [Other Restaurant].”

(He then took the coupon back, looking very confused, and walked out without saying another word.)

The Customer Isn’t Always Wrong

| NY, USA | Awesome Customers, Popular

(My mom, my sister, and I are in a doughnut shop. My mom has just tried a new coffee and discovered that she doesn’t like it.)

Mom: “Hi, I don’t really care for this drink, and I don’t want to dump it in the garbage can, because then it’ll leak on the poor garbage person. Can you pour this out in the sink?”

Worker: *obviously wary* “Sure… *takes cup*

Mom: “Thanks!”

Worker: *looks confused*

(As we leave the shop…)

Me: “I think he was expecting you to yell at him.”

Sister: “Why would she yell at him? It wasn’t his fault!”

Me: “Because sometimes, [Sister], people are irrationally angry at poor, hapless service workers.”

Mom: “I probably could have gotten a free drink if I wanted to, but I didn’t want to put him through that. It was my fault, anyway.”

Giving You A Grilling About The Chicken

| NJ, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Popular

(I am a server at a new restaurant in my hometown, taking a customer’s order.)

Customer: *pointing to the Grilled Chicken Sandwich on the menu* “Excuse me, is there chicken in this?”

(I think she’s kidding because it says chicken, but she doesn’t smile.)

Me: “Uh, yes, ma’am, there is chicken in the Grilled Chicken Sandwich.”

Customer: “Well, it doesn’t say that anywhere. You should tell your boss to clarify the menu.”

Free Of Gluten, Free Of Thought, Part 4

| CO, USA | Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Popular

(We have an open kitchen line where pizza and flatbread is thrown. Therefore, there is flour EVERYWHERE after we open. We do offer gluten free bread, though.)

Customer: “I would like a meatball grinder with gluten-free bread. I’m deathly allergic to gluten.”

Cashier: “Ma’am, we use regular bread crumbs in our meatballs. Would you like a different filling choice?”

Customer: “Oh, no. The meatballs are fine.”

(This during a rush where three of us were tossing dough and watching her inhale the flour.)
