    Prescribe Me Whatever They’re Having!

    | USA | Employees, Extra Stupid

    (I am a home health aide picking up a prescription for my client.)

    Me: “Hello, I’m picking up a prescription for [Client].”

    Pharmacist: “All right, and what is the date of birth?”

    Me: “It’s [birth date].” *note that I’m twenties and my client is in her sixties*

    Pharmacist: “So, is this you?”

    Me: “What do you think?”

    BLT, Better Luck Tomorrow, Part 4

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

    (After viewing the menu, I order a BLT. The employee starts to make it and I move over to the register to pay.)

    Employee: “Do you wanted anything else on the sandwich?”

    Me: “Mayonnaise.”

    (When I get to the table, I open the sandwich and there is nothing on it but bacon and mayonnaise. I took it back to the counter and speak to another employee there.)

    Me: “Hi, the L and T were missing from my BLT.

    Employee #2: “You didn’t tell my coworker you wanted those items on your sandwich.”

    Me: “You mean I have to tell you I want lettuce and tomato on my bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich?”

    Employee #2: “Well, how are we supposed to know what you want on your sandwich if you don’t tell us?”

    Me: “It’s in the name of the sandwich.”

    (He eventually gave me a small bowl with lettuce and tomato, but kept insisting that it was all my fault for not asking for lettuce and tomato on my bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich. I guess I should be thankful they put the bacon on without me specifically asking!)

    Needs To Think Outside The Boxes

    | London, England, UK | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Math & Science

    (I happen to overhear this exchange between the cashier and the lady in front of me in the queue:)

    Customer: “Can I have 40 [Brand] cigarettes, please?”

    Cashier: “Sorry, we only have those in boxes of 20.”

    Your Very Own Loonie Tunes

    | Waterloo, ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Money

    Cashier #1: “Okay, your total is $5.06.”

    Me: “Here’s a $20, and I think I have a nickel around here somewhere.”

    (Canadians have recently gotten rid of the penny, so we round. I hand the cashier a $20 bill and five cents.)

    Cashier #1: “Here’s your change!” *hands me back a $10 bill and two toonies ($4)*

    Me: “…the total was $20.06, right?”

    Cashier #1: “Yup!”

    Me: “You gave me $14 change.”

    Cashier #1: “Yeah, I don’t have enough change to make the 96 cents.”

    Me: “I gave you $20.06, it cost $5.06. You gave me $14. I’m just missing $1.”

    Cashier #1: “Okay, one sec.”

    (The cashier calls over one of the two other people working the already-slow kitchen.)

    Cashier #1: “Could you get me some change?”

    (There are a couple $1 coins sitting in clear view. It’s clear he’s not understanding.)

    Me: “You know what? It’s okay; I don’t want to hold up the line.”

    Cashier #2: “Okay, no worries.”

    (Cashier #2 still proceeds to grab some money from the till, go to the back, and make small change for Cashier #1, who is doing nothing as the line grows. Cashier #2 comes back, painstakingly sorts the small change, and then Cashier #1 closes the till without giving me change. I then proceed to see one of the other staff offer my drink to someone else, realize it’s not theirs, and throw it out.)

    Me: *sighs* “Clearly, today is not my day.”

    I’m (Cashed) Out Ten Dollars

    | Stoneham, MA, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Money

    (I am finishing a sale at a store and chose to get $10 back.)

    Cashier: “The total is $2.28. Here’s your change.”

    (He hands me $8.72 and I begin to leave but quickly realize what has just happened and go back.)

    Me: “Hi, I just got change back when I wanted ten dollars back. It was a debit card.”

    Cashier: “So you don’t want your change?”

    Me: “No, I was already charged for the purchase. I would like ten dollars.”

    Cashier: *looks at the other cashier on duty* “Okay…”

    (He gave me my money and still looked confused as I walk out.)
