    Don’t Give Him Some Sugar

    | Virginia Beach, VA, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Rude & Risque, Theme Of The Month

    (My sister and I are at a popular drive thru fast food chain for breakfast.)

    Server: “Do you want any cream or sugar for the coffee?”

    Sister: “No, thank you.”

    Server: “I thought not. You’re pretty sweet and sugary yourself.”

    (My sister is so thrown off she doesn’t know what to say, so I reach across the car for my coffee and speak up.)

    Me: “Thanks, honey!”

    (Being a guy in my 20s, he seems a little put off. As we drive off I tell my sister:)

    Me: “Next time I’ll have my coffee, hold the creep.”

    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!’)

    Playing The Name Game

    | MA, USA | Awesome Workers, Employees, Family & Kids, Food & Drink

    (It’s a Sunday, and my best friend and I are going to the movies along with his little sister. However, the theater has closed early and we instead decide to go to a restaurant nearby. We order some appetizers and are just chatting. My friend works at a grocery store and still has his polo and nametag on. He’s not one of the sharpest knives in the drawer but he’s a really good person. We notice one of the bus girls approach us.)

    Worker: “Hi. You’re [Friend], right?”

    Friend: “Yeah, how’d you know that?”

    Worker: “My name is [Worker]. Don’t you remember me?”

    Friend: “Uh…” *pulls the ‘oh, yeah’ face* “I think I actually do! How you been?”

    Worker: “I’m lying. We’ve never met before.”

    (At this point his sister and I laugh hysterically.)

    Me: “You get a high five for that!”

    Sister: “Can I shake your hand?”

    Worker: “I’m sorry. You had your nametag on and I just couldn’t resist.”

    (My friend has a really good sense of humor and appreciates a good joke. As we’re leaving, we tip the waitress and he gives an extra tip to the bus girl as well.)

    Can’t Quite Put His Finger On It

    | Phoenix, AZ, USA | Employees, Food & Drink

    (My sister and I are dining at a restaurant. We are seated next to the soda dispenser.)

    Sister: “Waiter, can I get a refill?”

    Waiter: “Sure.”

    (The waiter pinches the mouth of my sister’s glass and refills her soda. We see that because of the way he is holding the drink his fingers have touched the liquid. The waiter returns with my sister’s drink.)

    Sister: “I’m sorry, but did you put your fingers in the soda?”

    (I believe the waiter has misheard because he gives her a very puzzled look and then puts one of his fingers into her soda.)

    Me: “Um… she was saying that you put your fingers into her soda when you were refilling it.”

    Waiter: *goes wide-eyed as this dawns on him* “Oh! Sorry!”

    (He sheepishly took his finger out of the drink, then went back to the soda dispensers to get my sister a new glass, making sure to watch where his fingers ended up.)

    Not Warming Up To The Service

    | NH, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (I have ordered a large cheese pizza and a two-liter bottle of soda. When the delivery person shows up he only has the insulated pizza carrying bag.)

    Me: “Uhm… I had ordered a bottle of soda, too?”

    Driver: “Yeah, I got it.”

    (With that, he proceeds to take my now lukewarm bottle of coke and my now lukewarm pizza out of the same insulated bag.)

    Me: “Why would you put a cold bottle of coke and a hot pizza in the same insulated bag?”

    Driver: “Well, it’s easier to carry that way.”

    Me: “Don’t you think it defeats the purpose of using an insulated bag if you put hot and cold things in it together?”

    Driver: “But… it’s easier to carry!”
