    Doesn’t Know Beans About The Menu, Part 2

    , | CA, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I’ve placed a lunch order online to pick up at a popular chain fast food Mexican restaurant.)

    Me: “Hi. I’m here to pick up my order. It’s under [My Name]. I placed it online.”

    Employee: “Oh, yeah. We couldn’t make it because you didn’t say what kind of meat you wanted.”

    Me: “Um, I ordered vegetarian tacos.”

    Employee: *blank stare*

    Me: “Vegetarian? As in no meat?”

    Employee: “Oh! So did you not want rice or beans either, then?”

    Me: *forehead slap*

    Underwear Is Overwhelming

    | Reno, NV, USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre/Silly, Rude & Risque, Themed Giveaway

    (I’m shopping at a large chain clothing store for essentials (shirts, pants, etc.). I gather my things and head toward the checkout where a young, attractive female cashier is working. I set my things down on the counter, and start digging through my purse for money.)

    Cashier: *begins folding clothes* “Hi. How are you today?”

    Me: “Fine, thanks. And yourself?”

    Cashier: “Doing great!”

    (The cashier picks up on of the pairs of underwear I’m purchasing and looks them over before she folds them.)

    Cashier: “Oh, these are cute!”

    Me: “Yeah. That’s why I picked them.”

    Cashier: “I don’t suppose there’s any way I’ll see them on you…”

    Me: “Umm…”

    (I have no issue with anyone’s sexual preferences, but it was such an odd come-on that I just laughed, bought my things, and left.)

    Trying To Be The Change You Want To See In The World

    | Canterbury, Kent, UK | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Math & Science, Money

    (I am at the till, paying for my goods. The bill comes to £10.02. I have a £20 note and some change.)

    Me: “Here you go.”

    (I hand over the £20 note and two penny coins, so I can get £10 change back. The cashier stares at the coins and then hands them back.)

    Cashier: “That’s too much, mate. Don’t need those.”

    (He puts the £20 note through the till before I can say anything and gives my £9.96 in coins. My wallet is bulging. Sighing, I put it away and start walking off only to hear…)

    Cashier: *to supervisor* “Can I get some more change? I’m running really low!”

    Half An Answer For Half A Dollar

    | DE, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Money, Transportation

    (I’m driving downstate from my house to visit my parents, and I don’t have an EZ Pass so I have to actually stop for tolls. This is the 10th or so time I’ve gone this route, and so far nobody’s been able to answer a simple question. I know the answer, but I tend to be very paranoid when I’m going through tolls so I like to make sure I’m right.)

    Me: “I have a bit of an odd question that nobody’s been able to answer.”

    Toll Operator: “Yeah?”

    Me: *pulling out a 50-cent coin* “The 50-cent tolls, does it work just fine with a 50-cent coin?”

    Toll Operator: *takes the 50-cent coin from my hand, then hands me two quarters* “Problem solved!”

    Me: “But that doesn’t answer the question.”

    (The toll operator proceeded to ignore me, which prompted me to just go ahead on my trip.)

    Cuts No Ice With The Cashier

    | Richfield, MN, USA | At The Checkout, Crazy Requests, Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (It is a blistering hot summer and my mother doesn’t want to get out of the car’s A/C, but we need ice. So she gives me $10 and sends me into a local liquor store to pick some up. I am 18 at the time, but only buying ice.)

    Cashier: “ID, please.”

    Me: “Uh, I just want to buy this.” *holds out the $10*

    Cashier: *visibly annoyed* “ID!”

    Me: “I know you sell liquor mostly, but I’m just here for ice. I don’t have my ID on me.”

    Cashier: “No ID, no sale!”

    Me: “Uh… okay, then.

    (I put the ice back and walked out to the car my mom laughed at me the whole way home. A few years later my 21st birthday card read ‘Congrats! You can now buy ice!’)
