    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.)

    I’ll Go With Option Number Two

    , | Kitchener, ON, Canada | Employees, Food & Drink, Language & Words

    (We have recently gotten a new dessert: a pop tart ice cream sandwich. We are supposed to suggest it at the end of the order.)

    Coworker: “Will that be everything today?”

    Customer: “Yes.”

    Coworker: “Would you like an apple pie or our new poop tart— pop tart ice cream sandwich?”

    Treating Them Warm Gets A Cold Treat

    | Nelson, New Zealand | Awesome Workers, Employees, Family & Kids, Food & Drink

    (I am 10 years old and my brother is a year younger. My grandparents take us to a dairy to get ice creams.)

    Me: “Can I please have a scoop of vanilla and one of chocolate, please?”

    (My brother also orders. My grandparents pay and the cashier makes the ice creams and hands them to us.)

    Brother & Me: “Thank you.”

    Cashier: “Wait. Can I please have your ice creams back for a moment?”

    Me: “Okay…”

    (We hand over the ice creams. The cashier takes mine and adds an extra scoop, and then does the same for my brother.)

    Cashier: “There you go. You know, you are the only people to say ‘please’ or ‘thank you’ all day.”

    Me: “Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

    Celebration Simplification

    | Greenville, TX, USA | Employees, Food & Drink

    (For my wife’s birthday my parents and I have taken her to a restaurant.)

    Mother: *to waitress* “Do you have anything to celebrate a birthday?”

    Waitress: “Awww… Whose birthday is it?”

    Wife: “Oh, it’s mine.”

    Waitress: “Awww… It’s your birthday?”

    Wife: “Yup!”

    Waitress: “Well… Happy Birthday!”

    (Pause.)

    Waitress: *shrugs* “That’s it!”

    (We all had a great laugh over that. It has been over two decades now and we still use that line for each other’s birthday.)

    Didn’t Do Well With Pi At School

    , | Melbourne, FL, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I’m getting lunch and have asked for two slices of pizza.)

    Cashier: “Are you sure you wouldn’t rather have a personal pan pizza? It’s one and a half slices and it’s only a dollar more.”
