(This takes place while the customer is ordering at the drive-through speaker.)

Me: “Is that all?”

Customer: “No, I also want a Dr. Pepper on the side.”

No Sudden Gender Changes, Please

, | Washington, USA | Food & Drink

(Another employee and I are working the drive-thru and we both are able to talk to customers at the speaker box.)

Male coworker: “Hi, what can I get for you?”

Customer: “Well, I’ll take a number two and a number seven.”

(At this point, my coworker has to talk to another customer, so I finish talking to the customer. I am a woman.)

Me: “Okay, and what would you like to drink with those?”

Customer: “Wh-What happened to the MAN I was talking to?”

Me: “I’m sorry… he was helping another customer for a moment. Did you not want to talk to me?”

Customer: “That’s just rude and confusing for the customer!”

Practice What You Preach (Please)

| Massachusetts, USA | Family & Kids, Top

(I’m serving a mother and her two children.)

Me: “Are you ready to order?”

Mother: “Tell the lady what you would like.”

Son: “I’ll have the chicken fingers.”

Mother: “Say please!”

Son: *sheepishly* “Please.”

Mother: “And what would you like?”

Daughter: “A hot dog!”

Mother: “Say please!”

Daughter: “Please.”

Mother: “And I’ll have the fried clams.”

(She never did say “please”.)

Involuntarily Voluntary Or Voluntarily Involuntary

| Edmonton, AB, Canada | Food & Drink, Health & Body

(This happens to me while I am working as a cashier at a popular fast food place. A big, stereotypical jock teen in a football sweater comes up to my till.)

Me: “Hi, what can I get you today?”

Customer: “I’d like two apple pies, please.”

Me: “Sure, hang on a second.”

(I ring up the order and gives him the pies.)

Customer: “There’s something wrong…”

Me: “What?”

Customer: “I s*** my pants.”

Me: *shocked* “Wait, what?”

Customer: “I S*** MY PANTS!” *continues screaming and walks out of the store*

Always Exorcise Before Eating

| Pennsylvania, USA | Food & Drink

(I’m serving a lady who has come in with her two grandsons. While they are waiting for their food to come from the
kitchen, she flags me down.)

Customer: “Excuse me, could I have another glass of water?”

Me: “Sure! I’ll bring that right over for you.”

(I walk over to the waitress’ station, get her a glass of water, and bring it back.)

Customer: *in a creepy, fake child’s voice* “Thank you, mommy!”

(I walk away as quickly as possible. Even her grandsons look confused. For the rest of the night, though, she acts completely normal, as if nothing happened.)
