    Realising The Cold Truth

    | CA, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (A waitress walks up to me and my friend.)

    Waitress: “What type of drinks will you be having this morning?”

    Me: “Can I get an iced coffee, please?”

    (The waitress pauses a moment.)

    Waitress: “I’m not sure we have iced coffee. I’m sorry, sir, is there anything else I can get you?”

    (My friend looks at me bewildered.)

    Friend: “You don’t have ice coffee here?”

    (The waitress slowly shakes her head.)

    Me: “Uh… could i just get a normal coffee, then, a glass of ice-water, and an empty cup?”

    (The waitress wrote down the order and apologized again. Obviously it was still not clicking but she was nice so I didn’t have the heart to tell her. Before we left the waitress saw the ice mixed in with my coffee in the extra glass and the look on her face said it all. My friend and I laughed the entire drive home.)

    Not Doing Some Fine Coin

    | CA, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid

    (My cashier is helping a customer and frantically waves me over to the register.)

    Cashier: “Am I allowed to accept these as payment?”

    (He holds up a US gold dollar coin.)

    Me: “Is it legal tender?”

    Cashier: “Yes?”

    Me: “Correct. Have you ever seen one of them in the till drawer before?”

    Cashier: “Yes.”

    Me: “So how do you think they got in there before?”

    Cashier: “Um… I’m not sure.”

    (I give up at this point.)

    Me: “Yes, we take them.”

    Cashier: “Oh, okay!”

    A Sandwich Infraction

    | Chicago, IL, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Math & Science

    Me: “Oh, instead of halves, could you cut that sandwich into quarters, please?”

    Cashier: “Sure. Did you want three quarters, or four quarters?”

    Me: “…”

    Change-ing Your Mind

    | Munich, Germany | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Money

    (I have some time to kill before my flight, so I decide to buy some souvenirs at the duty free shop in the airport. I get my stuff and I make my way to the cash register.)

    Cashier: “Your total is €45.90.”

    Me: “Here.” *gives a €50 note and 90 cents*

    Cashier: “This is more than you owe.”

    Me: “Yes, I am giving you the 90 cents so you can give me a €5 note instead of lots of coins.”

    Cashier: “But we do not change banknotes.”

    Me: “Well, I just want to avoid lots of coins… This way you can give me a €5 note.”

    Cashier: “I do not understand why you gave me all this money.”

    Me: “Try entering the amount I gave you in the cash register and see what is says.”

    Cashier: *enters €50.90; system says that the change is €5.00* “Oh, it worked! Here, take your €5 note… unless…”

    Me: “…unless?”

    Cashier: “…unless you prefer your change in coins?”

    Me: “…”


    | St Paul, MN, USA | Bosses & Owners, Extra Stupid

    (I’m a part of a team of receptionists for a large company. My supervisor recently had me create a test about certain information we all should know, so when I received this test recently to take, I naturally thought there was a mistake and called my lead. Note: the test in question is predominately multiple choice and true/false.)

    Me: “Hi, I just wanted to make sure I’m supposed to take this test, considering I wrote it and all.”

    Lead: “Sure! Everyone is.”

    Me: “But… I wrote it. I created all the answers.”

    Lead: “Well, why not try taking it as if you’ve never seen it before!”

    Me: “So… you want me to deliberately give the wrong answers?”

    Lead: “No, no. Just change them up! Answer them differently than you did when you made the test!”

    Me: “…Right. You know I still have the answer key, right?”

    Lead: “You can’t use that! It’d be cheating. Just take the test and send it in.”

    Me: “Okay. Whatever you say.”

    (Probably needless to say, I got all the answers right.)
