Ice And A Side Of Chill Pill

, | UK | Food & Drink, Top

(Note: I am working in a drive thru.)

Me: “Hello, can I take your order?”

(I hear the customer sigh. They then carry on talking to a friend.)

Me: “Hello, can I take an order please?”

Customer: “God! One minute please! Can’t a person just have some peace without being pestered for money?”

Me: “Um, sir, you’ve driven up to the drive thru speaker. I assumed you’d wish to order. If not, you should have gone into the car park.”

Customer: “You’re being extremely rude. And how did you know I was a man?”

Me: “There is a camera facing you, sir. I didn’t mean to come across as rude, but you are causing a queue, so if you do not plan to order, please leave the queue.”

Customer: *sigh* “Fine.”

(He gives an incredibly long order, with special requests. I read the order back to him to verify that it is correct.)

Me: “Okay, if that order is complete, check the screen and come to the window.”

Customer: “God, what took you so long?! *throws change on the counter and drives off*

(Ten minutes later, he comes back.)

Customer: “I am not happy!”

Me: “What’s the problem with your order, si–”

Customer: “I specifically asked for coke with no ice, and you put it in wrong! Guess what? There’s ice in my coke!”

Me: “Sir, I read the order back to you twice and then asked you to check the screen to ensure it was correct.”

Customer: “Well you serve people everyday. You should have been able to guess from experience that I didn’t want ice. My demeanor made it very obvious!”

Cheap Like White On Rice

| Minnesota, USA | Food & Drink

(We have a customer who comes in and complains every single time to try and get his meal for free. I have seen him in action so I know to be cautious, but alas, he complains anyway.)

Customer: “What’s wrong with this rice?”

Me: “I’m not sure what you mean, sir–”

Customer: “It’s too light in color!”

Me: “Does it taste bad?”

Customer: “No, but it’s too light! It’s usually darker!”

Me: “That means it’s fresh, sir. It just came out. The longer it sits, the darker it gets.”

Customer: “This is bulls***!”

(The rice was sampled and seen to be in excellent quality, but he continued claiming it was BS until he had to be escorted out.)

Self Serve And Self Deserved

| Ohio, USA | Food & Drink

(I work at an all-you-can-eat buffet. My job is to bring drinks to the table and take away the dirty plates.)

Me: “Welcome to [restaurant name]! I’ll go ahead and get your drinks. The buffet is ready when you are.”

Customer: “Thanks!”

(I bring their drinks to the table and see that they are still there and have not gotten up to get their plates. I go about my business. About 10 minutes later, I see they are still sitting at their table with no food in front of them.)

Me: “Are you waiting on someone?”

Customer: “There you are! We’re starving! I’ll start off with chicken, corn, and mashed potatoes.”

Me: “Okay, well, the buffet is over there and you can help yourself.”

Customer: “You mean we have to get it ourselves?”

Customer #2: “Can’t you get our food for us?”

Me: “Are you disabled?”

Customer: “No, we’re not.”

Me: “The buffet is self-serve. The plates are up at the buffet.”

(Needless to say, I didn’t get a tip.)

The Count Would Be Proud

, | Eugene, OR, USA | Top

(A customer bursts into the store and slams a bag of food onto the counter and immediately starts yelling.)

Customer: “I ordered six hamburgers and I only got…”

(The customer starts pulling the burgers out one by one counting them loudly for the whole store to hear.)

Customer: “ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE!”

(Her face turns bright red as she realizes her error.)

Customer: “…six.”

(The customer quickly throws the burgers back into the bag and runs out of the store.)

Can’t Spell Without Without With

, | Winnipeg, MB, Canada | Food & Drink

(A customer pulls up in our drive thru. Note that our bacon cheeseburger is made exactly the same as our cheeseburger, except for the bacon. The bacon cheeseburger is also more expensive.)

Me: “Hi there, what can I get for you today?”

Customer: “Hi, I’d like a bacon cheeseburger with no bacon. Just mayonnaise and ketchup.”

Me: “Okay, so a cheeseburger with only mayo and ketchup.”

Customer: “No, a bacon cheeseburger with no bacon, and only mayonnaise and ketchup.”

Me: “Well, our cheeseburger is made exactly the way we make our bacon cheeseburger, except it has bacon on it and it costs more. So a bacon cheeseburger with no bacon is a cheeseburger.”

Customer: “NO! You don’t understand! I want a BACON CHEESEBURGER, with NO BACON, just mayonnaise and ketchup!”

Me: “I understand ma’am, but if I charge you for a bacon cheeseburger with no bacon, it’s more expensive than buying a cheeseburger, which is the same thing.”

Customer: “I DON’T CARE! I want a bacon cheeseburger with NO BACON! Just mayonnaise and ketchup!”

Me: “All right then.” *charges her for a bacon cheeseburger with no bacon* “That will be $*.** at the first window.”

(The customer comes up to the window and reads her receipt, looking satisfied.)

Customer: “Now, was that so hard?”
