Try The New Telepathy Burger!

, , , | Right | March 8, 2020

(I work at a fast food restaurant. At one point, I take an order from a small group that clearly didn’t plan ahead and is figuring out what they want as they go along. Accordingly, I’m extra careful to confirm exactly what they’ll be getting before I ring them up. Later, I’m bagging another order when my boss waves me over. Someone from the group is standing at the counter with the receipt.)

Customer: “We are short a burger.”

Boss: “I’m sorry about that, ma’am. This is the young lady who took your order. Do you mind if we take a look at the slip?”

Customer: “Go ahead.”

Boss: “Okay, so, I see three [burgers], did you get those?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Boss: “And this combo, did you get that?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Boss: “And then this [sandwich], was that in there?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Boss: “So… how can I help you?”

Customer: “Well… we wanted one more burger.”

Boss: “Okay, would you like to buy one now?”

Customer: “No.”

Boss: “Okay. Well, sorry about that. Have a good day.”

(The customer leaves.)

Boss: *to me* “Did she just complain because she didn’t order what she wanted?”
