    BLT, Better Luck Tomorrow, Part 2

    | Edmonton, AB, Canada | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I’m at the coffee/sandwich shop next door to where I work. The barista at the till is sort of new, but I assumed she had a good handle on things by now.)

    Me: “Hello, I’d like a BLT.”

    Barista: “So, sausage on that, right?”

    Me: “That would make it an SLT.”

    Barista: “No, it’s a BLT. Says so on the board.”

    (A few seconds pass.)

    Barista: “…Oh, I get it! The bacon kind, then.”

    Troubleshooting Has Bad Aim

    | VA, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Technology

    (I call my Internet provider because my service is off-line. I navigate through an automated menu that has me confirm my service is totally dead and I am unable to get online. I’m put on hold to wait for a technician.)

    Recorded Message: “While you wait, you may review our troubleshooting tips online at www. …”

    Me: *to myself* “WHY did I just spend two minutes confirming my Internet was off-line?”

    Vegetarians Often Go Without

    , | Fort Wayne, IN, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I am a vegetarian, and often order my meals without meat. I go through a popular fast food drive through to order one of their popular breakfast sandwiches and specify what needs altered.)

    Me: “Hey there! I’d like a [popular breakfast sandwich] without meat, and a large orange juice, please.”

    Worker: “A [popular breakfast sandwich]?”

    Me: “Yep! Without meat.”

    Worker: “Do you want it without Canadian bacon or without sausage?”

    Me: “… Whatever’s cheaper?”

    Denial Is Demanding

    | NSW, Australia | Employees, Extra Stupid

    (We’re on holiday. I walk into the only shop open within walking distance, opposite where we’re staying, to buy a lighter.)

    Employee: “No, we don’t have any. Ugh, people keep coming in all day asking for them and I keep having to explain we don’t have any demand for them!”

    Not Well Versed In Pillow Talk

    | Sudbury, ON, Canada | Employees, Extra Stupid

    (I’m looking at pillows when I notice that one of the display units don’t match any of the others.)

    Me: “Excuse me. I’m looking for this pillow, but none of these pillows seem to match. Am I missing it, or is it sold out?”

    Employee: “Let me see… Ah, it’s probably this one!”

    (I can see from the box that it’s not.)

    Me: “Actually, that doesn’t look right. I’m looking for the one with this bubble wrap gel. That one is more of a foam sheet.”

    Employee: “Hmm. Only way to tell for sure is to take it out of the box!”

    (Despite the picture on the side clearly showing the layers of the pillow, the employee begins to open the box and unzip the pillow case. The inside pillow is still cased inside a thin white fabric. )

    Employee: “See!”

    Me: “I don’t think so. The layer is blue, but it’s a different material than this bubbly one.”

    Employee: “Nah. Its just looks that way. Here I’ll take it out of the case… Should just zip open… No zip, huh… Okay, then.”

    (The employee then begins to tear the fabric open and claw at the foam.)

    Employee: “Huh. Guess you’re right. Ask up front if they know.”

    (The employee then threw the opened box, pillow case, and ripped pillow on top of the boxes and walked away.)
