Miracle On Placebo Street

, , , , | | Right | February 26, 2008

(I am a waiter at a ’50s style dinner in a mall restaurant. A customer asks me to turn the heat up.)

Customer: “It’s a little cold in here. Could you turn the heat up?”

Me: “I would love to, but the restaurant is open to the mall and we have no control over the mall temperature.”

Customer: “Could you please just try?”

Me: “I would love to, but there is no way–”

Customer: “I would really appreciate it if you would just try.”

Me: “I’ll be right back and see what I can do.”

(I then proceed to walk into the back house and munch on some onion rings. After a few minutes pass, I walk out.)

Me: “How’s that?”

Customer: “Much better!”

Me:: “Hi, welcome to *** Donuts, what can I get you?”

Customer:: “Hi, I’ll have a barbarian cream!”

Me:: “…a what?”

Customer: “A barbarian cream!”

Me: “…you mean a Bavarian cream?”

Customer: “Yeah, that!”

Who Needs Brains When You Have Money

| | Right | February 19, 2008

( I worked as a waiter at a country club with a bunch of really “Old Money” snobs. )

Me: “We have a steak (of some kind, I don’t remember). And dude does it sound good!”

Old Money: “Ahem! Excuse me! Did you just say dude?”

Me: “Why yes sir. I did, I was just saying how good this dish sounds.”

Old Money: “Well, excuse me young man. Dude AIN’T a word.”

(At this point I’m thinking…are you seriously trying to debate this with an English Major by saying “Ain’t?”)

Me: “Well sir, actually it is. A dude is a rich old man, like yourself, from the East who thinks they can live on a ranch in the West. And just for the record sir! ‘Ain’t’ is NOT a word! ”

(Needless to say, I wasn’t allowed to wait that Old Man or his family at the Country Club ever again.)

Alignment, Lawful Good; Wisdom, -6

Customer: “Yes, do your combo meals come with a Coke?”

Me: “Yes ma’am, they come with fries and a drink.”

Customer: “But what if I wanted something other than Coke?”

Me: “Well, you fill your drink yourself around the corner over there, so you can get whatever you want.”

Customer: “Oh, okay.” *customer places order*

Me: *sets out tray with receipt on top*

Customer: *looks at receipt, suddenly frowns* “Hey, it says ‘Coke’ on here for a drink. I didn’t order a Coke!”

Me: “That just means you ordered a drink.”

Customer: “But I didn’t want a Coke!”

Me: “That’s fine, ma’am. You can put whatever you’d like in your drink at the drink machines back there.”


Me: “All of the soft drinks are the same prices. It doesn’t matter what it says on the receipt.”

Customer: “Oh…” *leaves with her cup and fills her drink*

Coworkers: *laugh for the next ten minutes*

A Burger, Made Entirely Of Cheese

| | Right | February 16, 2008

Me: “Hi, how can I help?”

Lady: “Yes I’d like a hamburger please…”

Me: “Okay.”

Lady: “…with cheese on.”

Me: “Okay, so you would like a cheeseburger then?”

Lady: “No, I’d like a hamburger with cheese on.”

Me: “Yes, that would in fact be a cheeseburger.”

Lady: “But it says on your menu that you do hamburgers.”

Me: “Yes, we do, but you asked for cheese on it, so that is a cheeseburger.”

Lady: *getting angry now* “Look, I just want a hamburger with cheese on!”

Me: *calls over my shoulder* “One hamburger with cheese!”

(Sound of giggling in the back.)
