Unable To Change Someone That Stupid

, , , , , , , | Working | February 10, 2019

(I work in a store that is next to a fast food restaurant. One day I go to the fast food place for lunch with a coworker who really hates stupidity. My coworker places his order, and it comes to $10.35. He gives the cashier a $20 bill and ¢35 in coin. The cashier looks at him in total confusion.)

Cashier: “Why did you give me the ¢35?”

Coworker: “So you don’t have to give me any change, just the bill.”

Cashier: “You don’t want your change?”

Coworker: “You just need to give me a $10 bill now, instead of giving me a lot of coins.”

Cashier: “So, you don’t want your change?”

(This goes on for another minute.)

Coworker: *getting very frustrated* “Just type exactly what I gave you into your till.”

(She does, and the till tells her to give back $10. She gives him his change, and he gets his food and leaves, very angry. After he is gone, I hear this while I’m waiting for my food.)

Cashier: “What a moron, says he doesn’t want his change, leaving me to think I’m getting a good tip. Then leaves nothing.”

(I then saw the cashier’s coworkers shake their heads. I got my food, went back to work, and told my coworker what happened after he left. He made a complaint later on and got three free meals, and we never saw that cashier again.)

His-And-Hers Hearing Aids

(An elderly couple, at least in their 80s, comes up to the counter for two senior chicken meals we offer. It goes fairly smoothly, but it becomes evident that they’re both hard of hearing, so we have to speak slowly and loudly. At the end of the transaction, we get to witness this gem:)

Cashier: “Is that for here or to go?”

Husband: “Visa, please.”

(His wife gives him a light smack on the side with her cane, and a stern look.)

Wife: “He asked if you wanted salt or pepper! Pay attention!”
