With Great Bacon, Comes Great Responsibility, Part 11

, | Red Deer, AB, Canada | Bizarre, Crazy Requests, Food & Drink, Theme Of The Month

(I am taking orders on drive thru.)

Me: “Hi, welcome to [Restaurant]. What can I get for you?”

Customer: “Hey! So, I hear you guys have hickory-smoked bacon! This is true, right? You have bacon?”

Me: “Yes, we do. It can be added to any sandwich or baked goo—”

Customer: “No, no, I just want bacon. Bacon!”

Me: “Just bacon alone?”

Customer: “Yeah! Lots of bacon!”

Me: “So, would 10 slices be okay?”

Customer: “No, make it 20! 30! Lots of bacon!”

(I give him his total and he drives up to the window. I go wait by soup and sandwich for his order to be ready.)

Coworker: “30 slices of bacon on the side? On the side of what?”

Me: “…Just bacon. 30 slices of bacon.”

(My coworker stares blankly at me before wrapping 30 slices of bacon in a sandwich bag and giving it to me, shaking her head. I take the bacon to the window and my other coworker gives it to him.)

Customer: “Thanks, man! Gotta have my bacon!” *drives off*

Getting Chesty About The Law

| Rio de Janeiro, Brazil | Criminal & Illegal, Rude & Risque, Top, Tourists/Travel

(I’m an American married to a Brazilian, and I spend several months a year in Brazil. I work at a beachside stall serving beer and snacks. A pair of American tourists are in front of me, and the woman is topless, which is strictly illegal in Brazil, but many assume otherwise.)

Man: “Hi. Two cervezas and, uh, some chips. You got chips?”

Server: *in Portuguese* “Ma’am, you can’t be topless here! The police could arrest you. You need to cover up.”

Woman: “What are you talking about? I don’t speak Spanish.”

Me: “Lady, he’s telling you that you need to cover up.”

Woman: “What? Like h*** I do. This is Brazil!”

Me: “Yeah, a Catholic country that bans public nudity. You can be arrested.”

Man: “F*** off. This is Brazil. People go topless on the beach all the time.”

Me: “Well, look around at the beach. You’re the only woman in sight without a top on.”

Woman: “Mind your d*** business.” *they walk off in a huff*

Server: “I wonder if they noticed that they’re about to walk right past three police cars?”

Me: “Probably not.”

(I stood there, sipping my beer, and watched as the woman was cited for public nudity.)

Putting A Bump On Their Hump Day

, | Sydney, Australia | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink, Theme Of The Month

(We currently have a promotion for nine pieces of chicken for $9.95. This is only available on Tuesdays. This story occurs on a Wednesday afternoon. A car pulls up to drive thru window.)

Me: “Hi. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes. Can I have the Tuesday special for $9.95?”

Me: “Erm… Today is Wednesday.”

Customer: *blank stare*

Me: “I can’t sell you the $9.95 deal today.”

Customer: “Why not?”

Me: “Because it’s a special only for Tuesdays. Today is Wednesday.”

Customer: “But why can’t you do it for me?”

Me: “Because we can only do it on Tuesdays. That’s why it’s called the Tuesday special. We have another deal with ten pieces and two chips, that’s $19.95 though.”

Customer: “No, that’s too expensive. I don’t get why I can’t get a Tuesday special on a Wednesday!” *drives off*
