This Customer Has A Latte Problems, Part 2

| Orlando, FL, USA | Crazy Requests, Food & Drink

(I sell and prepare often pricey coffee from another well known company. We sell baked goods as well, including sandwiches.)

Me: “How can I help you today?”

Customer: “Do you have any turkey sandwiches?”

Me: *looking at the case, it features ham, sausage, bacon, and a vegetarian option as well* “Sorry, those are the only options we have available. Will one of them be okay?”

Customer: “I guess but can you customize the sandwich for me at least. I don’t like croissants.”

Me: “Unfortunately the sandwiches are prepackaged so we can’t do that but we can remove anything that you like from any one that you choose.”

Customer: “Fine, the bacon gouda with no bacon and no cheese. And a cappuccino as well.”

(After the order is paid for and received they come back.)

Customer: “My sandwich was fine but there is no milk in my cappuccino. It’s all foam.”

Me: “Cappuccinos are mostly foam and only half milk.”

Customer: “That’s not true. It’s supposed to be the other way around.”

Me: “Then you want a latte.”

Customer: “NO! It’s a cappuccino!”

(This back and forth went on for a bit, so in the end I made a latte with the code of a cappuccino and the customer walked away happy in their ignorance.)

Mayo-No-No

| CA, USA | Family & Kids, Food & Drink, Health & Body

(I am working the register at a sandwich shop at a theme park. A customer walks in with her mother.)

Me: “Hello, what can I get for you today?”

Customer: “Do y’all have turkey sandwiches?”

Me: “Yes, we do. It comes with your choice of chips, salad, or fruit.”

Customer: “Salad. I am on a diet so I can’t have any fat. By the way is your bread on the turkey sandwich fat free?”

Me: “Yes, I believe so. I can go ask our chef if you would like.”

Customer: “No, it’s okay. I think you are right. Is your turkey fat free?”

Me: “Yes, our turkey is lean, cooked and sliced right here.”

Customer: “Oh, that sounds good. Also are your tomatoes fat free?”

(At this point, the coworkers around me and this woman’s mother are stifling laughs.)

Me: “Yes… they are definitely fat free.”

Customer: *to her mother* “See, ma, I am doing this diet thing right.”

Me: “Might I mention that we have a mustard sauce on our sandwich that is not fat free, and includes mayo. Would you like me to get you one without it?”

Customer: “No. How can you eat a sandwich without mayo?”

The Biggest Space Is Between Their Ears

| Orlando, FL, USA | Bizarre, Tourists/Travel

(I work at a certain mountain based sci-fi rollercoaster in a magical themed park run by a mouse. Every night at 10 pm, we have a fireworks show. One night, I am standing at greeter position. Five minutes before the fireworks show; I am approached by a guest.)

Me: “Hello, ma’am, how could I be of assistance?”

Guest: “Yeah, could you tell me what’s in here?” *pointing at the building containing the rollercoaster*

Me: “Oh, yes, that’s [Space-themed Roller Coaster Mountain]. It’s an indoor rollercoaster. The wait time is currently—”

Guest: “Wait, so, it’s not for the fireworks?”

Me: “Afraid not. The fireworks will be visible from out here, though, if you wanted to see them.”

Guest: “I really thought there was some special viewing area up there for the fireworks.”

Me: *looking at the giant concrete structure with no platforms, windows, or balconies* “Unfortunately not, friend. In fact once inside you’ll be completely unable to see the fireworks, seeing as the whole thing is indoors.”

Guest: “Oh. Wait why are there people going in then?”

Me: “Well, they’re going in to ride the rollercoaster.”

Guest: “But the fireworks are about to start.”

Me: “They won’t be watching the fireworks.”

Guest: “But why? They start in five minutes!”

Me: “I guess they don’t want to see them then.”

Guest: *after a long pause* “Well, that’s really stupid, then.”

(Without any hesitation, the guest then proceeded to get in line for the ride, and walked into the building.)
