Have Mouth, Will Shovel

Me: “What can I get you today?”

Customer: “I’ll have the grinder.”

Me: “Okay, what would you like on it?”

Customer: “Whatever is on a grinder.”

Me: “Ma’am, a grinder is just another name for a sandwich–just like hoagie or sub. I need to know what you would like on it.”

Customer: “How should I know what’s on a grinder? The old place had a grinder. I ordered a grinder, and they gave me a grinder!”

Me: “So, you don’t know what kind of meat or cheese you would like?”

Customer: “Whatever is on a grinder! They made a grinder, and they put the right stuff on it! How would I know what I eat?!”

Customer: “What is in your turkey melt?”

Me: “Turkey and cheese, and any veggies you like.”

Customer: “What other meats?”

Me: “Turkey.”

Customer: “And…”

Me: “Dog?”

(The customer still ordered the turkey melt, but watched very closely to make sure dog wasn’t part of the menu.)

(A customer comes in, clearly inebriated, and orders a chili. We get it for him, he sits down but a couple of minutes later he comes back up to the counter.)

Customer: “I think my chili is still frozen.”

Me: “Are you sure? It should be quite hot.”

Customer: “I’ll show you.”

(He gets the chili and attempts to put his spoon in it.)

Me: “Sir, the lid is still on.”

One Scamwich, Coming Right Up, Part 2

(I’m supervising on a Sunday afternoon, our slowest day of the week. We’ve only been open a couple hours and have only made maybe 4 or 5 sandwiches. A customer calls in with a complaint.)

Caller: “Excuse me, I ordered a sandwich from you this morning and it is just terrible! You toasted it too much and it just fell apart when I bit into it!”

Me: “Well that’s odd, sir. If a sandwich was toasted too long it would normally burn long before it would dry out like that. What did you order?”

Caller: “Chicken.”

Me: “I can’t find your order in the system. Could you tell me what time you were here?”

Caller: “This morning sometime.”

Me: “We weren’t open this morning, sir. We open at noon on Sundays.”

Caller: “Well, maybe it was after noon then.”

Me: “Okay, well I’ve been here all day and I don’t recall serving a chicken sandwich to a gentleman today.”

Caller: “It was my wife who came in.”

Me: “I’m looking through today’s orders on the computer, and I haven’t served any chicken sandwich today. Are you sure you came to this location?”

Caller: “Yes. And it was last night. I talked to the manager and he said you’d give me a free sandwich today.”

Me: “I was the manager last night too, sir.”

Caller: “You’re not going to give me a free sandwich, are you?”

Me: “No, sir. I’m not.”

Caller: “Okay, then.” *hangs up*

Customer: “Hi, I would like a sandwich.”

Me: “Sure, what sandwich would you like?”

Customer: “I want a hot sandwich.”

Me: “Okay, do you mean heated or spicy?”

Customer: “Oh heated, I don’t like spicy. So I will have meatball.”

Me: “Sure, would that be six-inch or foot-long?”

Customer: “Uhm…whole please.”

Me: “Okay, foot-long? What type of bread?”

Customer: “White.”

Me: “We don’t have white, but we have Italian.”

Customer: “Fine, whatever. Oh, and I think my daughter wants a sandwich too.”

Me: “What type of sandwich does she want?”

Customer: “How am I supposed to know? She’s not here!”
