    A Smooth Operator

    , | Oakville, ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Bizarre/Silly, Employees, Food & Drink, New Hires

    (After work I go to get a cookie and a smoothie.)

    Me: “Hi, can get a [cookie] and a strawberry banana smoothie, please?”

    Employee: *throws her arms up in the air* “YAY!” *turns to the new guy she’s training* “YOU get to make a smoothie!” *turns to me* “I’ve been waiting all day for somebody to order one!”

    Me: *amused but somewhat at a loss* “Um… glad I could help with that?”

    (The new guy made a good smoothie!)

    We’ve Reached A Dirty Fork In The Road

    | CA, USA | Bad Behavior, Bosses & Owners, Food & Drink

    Dad: “Ma’am?” *waves to the waitress* “I’m sorry, but half of these utensils are filthy.”

    Waitress: “Oh, my! Here, let me go replace them for you. I’m sorry!”

    Dad: “Thank you.”

    (The waitress comes out with a new set for everyone. My dad finds out that these are just as filthy as the bunch he sent back.)

    Waitress: “Let me get the manager to figure this out.” *goes to the kitchen*

    Manager: *comes out of the kitchen, holding a handful of dripping wet utensils* “Here!” *slams his fist onto the table* “You pick which ones you want!”

    (My father left when he saw that in the middle of the utensils the manager grabbed was a slice of tomato.)

    Weight Gain Equals Job Loss

    | TX, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Employees, Food & Drink, Health & Body

    (I have always been on the small side. At this time I had just gotten over the flu, and so I was a bit skinnier than I normally am. I was really craving a chicken sandwich, so I decided to get one.)

    Me: “Can I get a chicken sandwich with no lettuce and no mayo, but add tomatoes? And a small diet coke.”

    Worker: “No.”

    Me: “Sorry?”

    Worker: “I’ll get you a large regular coke and a cheeseburger, because you need to gain weight, anorexic freak.”

    A Salted With Spit

    | PA, USA | Bad Behavior, Employees, Food & Drink, Health & Body

    (My family had finished moving furniture into my cousin’s house. Afterwards we all go out to eat at a well known restaurant. Everything is fine until after we get our food. Our salt shaker seemed to be clogged, and we flagged down a waitress to help us.)

    Dad: “Excuse me our salt shaker is clogged. Can you get us a new one?”

    (The waitress takes the salt shaker and instead of getting a new one, she blows into it, spits on it, and rubs it with a napkin.)

    Waitress: “It should be fine now.”

    (We haven’t gone back since.)

    A Silent Cry For Attention

    | USA | Coworkers, Food & Drink

    Coworker #1: “Yawning at your desk again?”

    Me: “I call it a silent scream that indicates I need more coffee to function.”

    Coworker #2: “I am going to call yawns “silent screams for coffee” from now on.”
