Try Our New Three Slice Pizza

, | Syracuse, NY, USA | Food & Drink

(I am talking to a woman on the phone who is ordering a pizza.)

Customer: “How many slices come in a large pizza?”

Me: “The large comes with 12 slices.”

Customer: “Ok, I will take a large pizza, but can you cut it into 8 slices instead? I couldn’t possibly eat 12 slices.”

The Land Of The Free And Home Of The Portable Umbrella

| Anchorage, AK, USA | Food & Drink

(I am clearing off the tables on the deck of the restaurant because it has just started raining. Most people have moved inside.)

Customer: “Are you guys kicking us off the deck?”

Me: “No, sir, you are welcome to stay out here as long as you wish.”

Customer: “In that case, can you move one of the tables with the umbrellas so they cover my wife?”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but the tables are bolted down to the deck and I can’t move them.”

Customer: “The tables…they don’t move? But this is America!”

An Ate For Two Special

Customer: “Hi, I’ll have one Penne Milano.”

Me: “Okay, is there anything else I can get you?”

Customer: “Well, how can I make it feed eight?”

Me: “Perhaps you can order more than one?”

Line Is Law

| British Columbia, Canada | Food & Drink

(I am working in a buffet-style restaurant where customers line up for the food.)

Supervisor: “Can you go refill the napkins? We’re all out.”

Me: “Sure.”

(I walk over to the line wearing my work uniform and my ID card prominently displayed.)

Me: “Excuse me, I just need to refill the napkins.”

Customer: “No problem.”

Customer #2: “Why the f*** does everyone keep cutting the line?”

Me: “Sir, I work here. I am just refilling the napkins.”

Customer #2: “Well, that is no excuse! If you work here, you should know to wait your turn!”
