    A Dangerous Mis-Steak

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

    (My family and I are ordering at a steakhouse. I have a potato allergy and I was inquiring about non-potato sides.)

    Me: “What sides do you offer that are not potatoes? I don’t see them listed on the menu.”

    Server: “Well we have steamed veggies, applesauce, steak fries, cheese sticks—”

    Me: “Steak fries are potatoes.”

    Server: “Um, no they are not. I work here. I know.”

    Me: “Uh huh… What are regular fries made of?”

    Server: “Potatoes.”

    Me: “And curly?”

    Server: “Potatoes.”

    Me: “And steak fries are not?”

    Server: *there is a long pause as you can hear the gears turning in her head* “No.”

    Me: “Okay. Well, I will have the applesauce.”

    (She left and we all cracked up. When she came back out she apologized and said she asked the cook. She had assumed they were strips of steak.)

    Managed To Come To A Conclusion

    | Dayton, OH, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid

    (My mom and dad are currently shopping at a store where my uncle is a manager. My dad and my uncle have heard all their lives that they look very much alike)

    Saleswoman: *does a double take at my dad* “Wow! Sorry, you look just like my manager!”

    My Mom: *laughing* “Yeah, there’s a reason for that!”

    Saleswoman: *completely serious* “Why, are you a manager, too?”

    Best Customer, No Question

    | MA, USA | Awesome Workers, Employees, Geography

    Associate: “Hi, any questions?”

    Me: “No, just browsing.”

    Associate: “Really? No questions? What’s my favorite color? What’s the capital of Iceland?”

    Me: “Reykjavik.”

    Associate: *high-fives me* “You are the first person to get that! You’re my favorite customer!”

    (Gotta say, I left the store feeling pretty good after that.)

    Credited With Bad Advice

    | Houston, TX, USA | Employees, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (We are a young married couple. Both of us employed and reasonably well paid, but my wife and I have hit some financial hardships due to unexpected medical bills. We go to a credit counseling service to see about consolidation and other services. After looking over our paperwork for a few minutes, the lady helping us speaks.)

    Counselor: “Well, I see what the problem is.”

    Me: “Uh, ‘problem?’”

    Counselor: “Yes. You need to make more money.”

    (We left.)

    Need To Keep Your Mouth Shut Too

    | UK | At The Checkout, Employees, Health & Body

    (I’m 15. My mum has just had another baby and I’m buying some more nappies (diapers) because we’ve run out.)

    Cashier: “You know these are for babies, love?”

    Me: “Yes, I know.”

    Cashier: “How old are you?”

    Me: “15.”

    Cashier: “Have you told your mum, love? When are you due?”

    Me: “These are for my mum… for my sister.”

    Cashier: “Teenagers these days need to keep their legs shut!”

    Me: “I’m not a bloody mum!”

    Cashier: “No need for that abuse now, dear. How is your schoolwork doing? How are you coping with the baby?”

    Me: “If you need to know, I’m a straight-A student, planning to applying to both Oxford and Yale.”

    Cashier: “And leaving your baby at home? Keep your legs shut, child!”

    Me: “You know what? I think I’ll just pop to [Competitor] for these instead, so that my Mum can change my sister.”

    Cashier: *as I walk away* “You need to keep your legs shut, girl!”
