Doesn’t Like His Veggies (Questioned)

| USA | Bad Behavior, Family & Kids, Food & Drink, Popular

(One of our most popular sandwiches is our BLT. Our veggies are optional, however, so some people do not get lettuce and tomato on their sandwich. We just normally ask what veggies they would like on their sandwich. A mother and her teenage son walk in and go through the usual ordering process.)

Me: “Any other sandwiches for you guys today?”

Mother: “Nope, we’re good!”

Me: *asking the son* “And veggies on your BLT?”

Son: “…”

Me: “Veggies?”

Son: *rolls eyes and speaks in a very condescending tone* “Well, lettuce and tomatoes, duh! God!”

Me: *stays silent and proceeds to put veggies on his sandwich*

Mother: “CUT THE ATTITUDE, [SON]! She’s not a mind reader! She doesn’t know what the f*** you want!”

(At that point my coworker and I had to hold back our laughter while the son slowly turned red from embarrassment.)

Teenage Customer: “Can I get a ham on wheat?”

Me: “Absolutely. Is that a six-inch or twelve-inch?”

Teenage Customer: “What’s the difference?”

Me: *speechless*

(The customer’s dad turns to his son and gives him a disgusted look.)

Customer’s Dad: “One’s bigger, a**-hole.”

Order Number One

(I used to work at a cold cut sub shop, and the names of the sandwiches are pretty straightforward — but we usually, for whatever reason, get weird variations of said sandwich names, even if the staff says it correctly. This happened more than I’d like to admit.)

Me: *as cashier* “Hello! How are you? What can I get you today?”

Older Woman: *looks at menu* “Hmmm…I’d like the number one, the Pee Pee, please.”

Me: *eyebrows slowly raise, cheerful smile keeping me from laughing* “Ah, the number one, Pepe.” *pronounced PEH-PAY* “All righty, anything else?”

Older Woman: “Yes, the Pee Pee, that’ll be all. Mmmm. That just sounds so good…”
