Common Sense Just Melts Away, Part 3

| Fairbanks, AK, USA | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Popular

(I work as an assistant manager at an ice-cream shop. It is April and sunny out and a customer has come in and bought some of our ice-cream cupcakes about one and a half hours ago. A customer storms into the store and demands to talk to the manager.)

Me: “I’m the assistant manager. What can I do for you?”

Customer: “I demand that you replace my cupcakes.”

(She pulls the container with the melted cupcakes out of her bag.)

Me: “After you purchased these, did you store them in a freezer?”

Customer: “No. I left them in my car while I did my other shopping. Why would I store them in a freezer?”

Me: “Because they’re made of ice cream. That’s why they’re in a display freezer.”

(I gesture to the back of the store where our freezer sits, full of ice-cream cakes, cupcakes, and tubs of ice cream.)

Customer: “How was I to know that’s why they were in a freezer? You should tell people that they’re made of ice cream before they buy them.”

(I replace her cupcakes with new ones, making sure to tell her that they are made of ice-cream and should be kept in a freezer.)

(My family and I are out to eat, when I seen our waiter’s name is Scotty. I am a big nerd and a fan of Star Trek.)

Waiter: “Would you like some cheese on your soup, miss?”

Me: “Cheese me up, Scotty!”

(The waiter then burst out laughing and told me I made his week.)

Enough To Tip The Cup

| Philadelphia, PA, USA | Bad Behavior, Money, Popular

(I am a server at a restaurant right on a main road. It gets really busy sometimes and I am struggling to keep up. I finish taking my orders and turn to see one of my tables had a tip on it, so I grab the money and ask if I can help her with anything before she goes.)

Customer: “Yes. You forgot my to-go cup.”

(I look at her drink. It’s basically empty but I smile and turn to go get the cup.)

Customer: “See these bottom feeders? They only work for you when the money’s on the table.”

(I heard her as I was walking away and was fuming. I walked back, firmly put her to-go cup down, then looking her dead in the eye, slammed the tip back down with it and walked away to take my next table’s order. Your three dollar tip on an 80+ dollar bill was not worth my pride.)
