The Customer Isn’t Always Wrong

| NY, USA | Awesome Customers, Popular

(My mom, my sister, and I are in a doughnut shop. My mom has just tried a new coffee and discovered that she doesn’t like it.)

Mom: “Hi, I don’t really care for this drink, and I don’t want to dump it in the garbage can, because then it’ll leak on the poor garbage person. Can you pour this out in the sink?”

Worker: *obviously wary* “Sure… *takes cup*

Mom: “Thanks!”

Worker: *looks confused*

(As we leave the shop…)

Me: “I think he was expecting you to yell at him.”

Sister: “Why would she yell at him? It wasn’t his fault!”

Me: “Because sometimes, [Sister], people are irrationally angry at poor, hapless service workers.”

Mom: “I probably could have gotten a free drink if I wanted to, but I didn’t want to put him through that. It was my fault, anyway.”

Giving You A Grilling About The Chicken

| NJ, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Popular

(I am a server at a new restaurant in my hometown, taking a customer’s order.)

Customer: *pointing to the Grilled Chicken Sandwich on the menu* “Excuse me, is there chicken in this?”

(I think she’s kidding because it says chicken, but she doesn’t smile.)

Me: “Uh, yes, ma’am, there is chicken in the Grilled Chicken Sandwich.”

Customer: “Well, it doesn’t say that anywhere. You should tell your boss to clarify the menu.”

Free Of Gluten, Free Of Thought, Part 4

| CO, USA | Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Popular

(We have an open kitchen line where pizza and flatbread is thrown. Therefore, there is flour EVERYWHERE after we open. We do offer gluten free bread, though.)

Customer: “I would like a meatball grinder with gluten-free bread. I’m deathly allergic to gluten.”

Cashier: “Ma’am, we use regular bread crumbs in our meatballs. Would you like a different filling choice?”

Customer: “Oh, no. The meatballs are fine.”

(This during a rush where three of us were tossing dough and watching her inhale the flour.)
