, | Ohio, USA | Rude & Risque

(I am a customer at a restaurant. I’m wearing a shirt from a popular web comic. A woman, also a customer, approaches me.)

Customer: “I love your shirt!”

Me: “Aw, thanks! Are you a fan of [web comic]?”

Customer: “No, I’ve never heard of it, but your shirt is so cute. I just have to have one! Where did you get it?”

Me: “I bought it online. Do you want the name of the website?”

Customer: *suddenly huffy and angry* “Excuse me?”

Me: “Um, do you want the name of the place on the internet that I ordered the shirt from?”

Customer: “Do you think I’m stupid? Are you trying to trick me? There’s no such thing as a website with shirts on it! The only things on the internet are porn and pedophiles!”

Me: *completely speechless*

Nearby customer: “Ma’am, could you please settle down? There are children around, and I’m sure their parents don’t want them hearing about–”

Customer: “Porn and pedophiles!” *rushes out of restaurant*

We Can See Through Your Whine

| Margarita, Venezuela | Food & Drink, Top

Me: “Evening! Welcome to [restaurant]. How can I serve you?”

Customer: “I’m sorry, I don’t see the Californian wine in the menu.”

Me: “That’s because we don’t have it, miss.”

Customer: “And why is that, exactly? I am a wine lover. The Californian wine is the very best and I only drink the very best.”

Me: “Well, ma’am, because the Californian wine has a very low demand in this country, it is extremely hard to find. We have Chilean and Argentinian wine, if you like.”

Customer: “All right. I guess i’ll have to adjust to your low standards. Give me a bottle of the Chilean.”

Me: “All right, miss. Would you have Cabernet, Malbec, or Carmenerè?”

Customer: “I don’t want any of that! I just want red wine! Is it so hard to understand that?

Me: “All right, ma’am, I’ll bring you the Cabernet then.”

Customer: “I said I don’t want that? I only want red wine! Please get me the manager!”
