    Trash Talking The Trash

    | Fargo, ND, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Language & Words

    (My dad and I walk into a diner. It has easily the worst food and service we’ve ever had. It comes time to pay the bill.)

    Dad: “So how much do you want for this garbage?”

    Waitress: “Don’t call our s***, garbage!”

    Me: “We stand corrected!”

    (She didn’t get it.)

    A Watered-Down Service

    | Cebu, Philippines | Bad Behavior, Coworkers, Food & Drink, Top

    (There’s a certain coworker that has been ignoring and annoying the customers. One night, we’re very packed and I see a young woman come in. The following is a conversation between them:)

    Woman: “Hi. Can I get a table over by the window?”

    Coworker: *ignores her*

    Woman: “Excuse me. Could I get the table over by the window, please?”

    Coworker: *continues to ignore her*

    (By now, the woman is slightly irritated but manages to keep calm. After a few minutes of ignoring her, the worker finally gives her the table.)

    Coworker: *mumbling* “What do you wanna eat?”

    Woman: “Excuse me?”

    Coworker: *sighs dramatically* “Are you f***ing deaf, lady? I asked you what you want to eat. Are you gonna tell me or not?”

    (The woman has a look of anger but instead grins and I’ll never forget what she does next.)

    Woman: *smiling to me* “Miss? Yes, you. Could you bring that glass of water over here?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am.”

    Woman: “Here’s one on the house, a**hole!”

    (She tosses the water in his face, completely catching him off guard. I try my best not to laugh as she picks up her purse and leaves. The coworker shouts profanities at her while someone fetches the manager. After my statement against him, the manager fires him.)

    Dollars To Donuts She Will Get The Order Wrong

    | Richmond, VA, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I am the only customer in the store.)

    Employee: “Hi, what can I get you today?”

    Me: “I’d like a bacon, egg, and cheese on a croissant, please.”

    Employee: “A bacon, egg, and cheese on a…?”

    Me: “Croissant. And can I also get a chocolate kreme donut?”

    (The employee starts ringing up my order, and then takes my money. I am turned around looking at their bags of coffee while she grabs my donut and bags it. She hands me the bag and then goes to start my sandwich.)

    Employee: “And you didn’t want cheese on that, right?”

    Me: “No, I wanted cheese.”

    (She starts making my sandwich and I see her pull sausage out of the fridge.)

    Me: “I’m sorry. I said I wanted bacon.”

    Employee: “Oh, I could have sworn you said sausage.”

    (She finishes making my sandwich correctly and then hands it to me. It’s not until I get to work that I open the bag with my donut and notice she gave me the wrong one. I called the manager later on to say that I would be more understanding if I hadn’t been the only customer this girl had!)

    Spilled Karma

    | Denver, CO, USA | Coworkers, Food & Drink, Movies & TV

    (About an hour before, my coworker spilled a strawberry smoothie all over the front of himself, soaking his shirt, pants, and the floor. I tease him about it mercilessly. Then, when I am helping another server get drinks for a table, I managed to catch the edge of the spout on the lip of the glass, knocking it over and spilling soda all over my pants. I walk into the kitchen laughing hysterically.)

    Me: “So, [Coworker], I can’t make fun of you for spilling that smoothie anymore. I just knocked a soda onto my pants.”

    Coworker: *laughs* “It looks like you peed your pants!”

    Me: “Speak for yourself!”

    Coworker: “Well, you’re not cool until you pee your pants!”

    Me: *laughing hysterically* “Was that a Billy Madison reference?”

    Just Came Up With It From Scratch

    | USA | Bosses & Owners, Coworkers, Food & Drink, Health & Body

    (I work in the drive-thru at a fast food restaurant. On my second day, I come in covered in bandages. I had fallen while jogging, resulting in very bad scrapes on my arms, hands, and face. My manager looks up in alarm.)

    Manager: “[My Name], are we beating you up already?”

    Me: “Just a little accident.”

    Manager: “Wait, this is perfect. Let me introduce you to the guys you didn’t meet yesterday.”

    Me: “Okay.”

    Manager: *introducing me to a new guy* “This is [My Name]. She’s going to be working the drive-thru.”

    New Guy: “Nice to meet you. What happened?”

    Manager: “I’m using her as an example. This is what happens when you talk back to your manager! I don’t mess around. Get back to work!”
