Procedural Power Nap

, , , , | Healthy | July 2, 2018

I went in for an outpatient procedure to have a uterine ablation. They were getting me ready for the procedure, and had already given me the stuff to make me sleepy. I asked if I could use the bathroom first. I started to get sleepy and asked again to use the bathroom.

“You’re all done. We just finished the surgery.”

It was the weirdest feeling! I literally blinked and it was over!

Stupidosaurus Wrecks

(I intern at a museum in downtown Salt Lake City. It’s a really slow day, and only six customers find their way into the museum during my five-hour shift. A grandfather and his grandson come in. I’ve shown them around the museum, and I get to the science demonstrations. It’s some pretty simple stuff, like baking soda and vinegar, or other such scientific demonstrations. This exchange takes place after I’ve finished the experiments.)

Grandfather: “What dinosaur is that?” *points to a canine skeleton in the cabinet behind me*

Me: *trying not to laugh* “That’s a dog skeleton, sir.”

Grandfather: “Oh… Then, where are the dinosaurs?”

Me: “Sir, while this is a museum, we don’t have the space for such an exhibit.”

(My coworker cuts into the situation.)

Coworker: “He’s right, sir. We don’t have any fossils exhibited here right now.”

Grandfather: “Then, where is your dinosaur exhibit?”

Me: “…”

Coworker: “…”

(He continued asking me where the dinosaurs were, despite me telling him multiple times we didn’t have any. His grandson looked rather exasperated throughout the entire exchange.)

Unfiltered Story #109183

, , | Unfiltered | April 22, 2018

(As a 16 year old female, I was working at my first job as a hostess at a local steakhouse. Around lunch time a large man walks in wearing nothing but a blue button-up shirt, boxers, and shoes. He was also carrying two large cans of vegetables.)

Customer: “Can I use your guys’ restroom?”

Me:*nods and points to our restroom on the other side of the restaurant*

Customer: “Mind if I leave these here?” *Sets cans on bench in the waiting area*

Me: “Uh…”

(He then heads to the restroom while I quickly find the manager.)

Me: “Hey, [manager]! There’s a guy in our bathroom not wearing any pants.”

Manager: “I’ll take care of this, you go on back to the host stand.”

(Next thing I knew, the man was being escorted out of the restaurant by [manager].)

I Want A Hot Chocolate, But Confused

, , , , , | Right | April 10, 2018

Me: “Hey! How are you today?”

Customer: “Great! Hey, do you have hot chocolate, but like… over ice?”

Me: “We can do a chocolate milk for you, absolutely!”

Customer: “No. Hot chocolate, but over ice.”

Me: *sigh* “Yeah, we can do that for you.”

Customer: “Awesome!”

Me: “What size would you like?”

Customer: “Uh, medium.”

Me: “Okay! Anything else for you today?”

Customer: “Nope! That’ll do it!”

(I hand him his drink in a cup we typically serve hot drinks in; we make an exception for cold milk.)

Customer: *drink is already in his hand, so he’s felt the temperature, which is very well cold* “Oh, sorry, but I wanted this iced.”

Customers Come First As Long As They’re You

, , , , , | Right | April 9, 2018

(I work in a coffee shop. My coworker is on her break, leaving me alone. I am helping somebody in the lobby as a lady comes by the drive-thru.)

Me: “Thanks for choosing [Coffee Shop]; I’ll be with you in a moment.”

(I finish serving the lobby guest, and go back to talking on the headset.)

Me: “Thanks so much for your patience; I do appreciate it. What sounds good today?”

Customer: “Can I get a 16-ounce hot chai?”

Me: “Absolutely! Anything else?”

Customer: “No, that’s all.”

Me: “I’ll see you at the window!”

(The customer gets to the window.)

Customer: “I don’t see why I had to wait when there’s no one in front of me.”

Me: “I’m so sorry about the wait; I was helping someone in the lobby, and we are short-staffed at the moment.”

Customer: “There’s absolutely no reason I should be waiting like that! Customers come first!”

Me: “I’m very sorry, but, like I said, I was helping another customer in the store.”

Customer: “This is horrendous service! I’m very close with the owner and her family. I’m going to call her and see to it your employment is terminated!”

Me: *laughs* “You do that, ma’am! Have a fantastic night, and here’s your chai!”

(My coworker happens to be the owner’s daughter. I ask her about this lady.)

Coworker: “I have no idea who the f*** that lady is; she can f*** off.”

(She never did call the owner.)
