    Mugged Of Their Green Credentials

    | NJ, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (There’s a coffee shop in the library on my college campus. There are signs advertising a school mug as a way to be more green, by using fewer paper cups. My friend goes there one day with one of these mugs.)

    Friend: “I’d like a [coffee].”

    Cashier: “That’ll be [price].”

    Friend: *handing over payment card* “I have one of these [College] mugs. Do I give it to you to fill?”

    Cashier: “Oh, no. You fill the mug yourself after we give you the drink in one of the paper cups.”

    A Recipe For Disaster

    | USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Health & Body, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (My spouse has celiac and is on a gluten-free diet. We’ve stopped into a place while driving and are trying to determine if he can eat anything. Many cream-based soups contain flour as a thickener.)

    Me: “Excuse me. Do you have an ingredient or allergen list for the broccoli cheese soup?”

    Cashier: “I don’t know what you mean by ingredients.”

    Me: “Uh… a list of what’s in the soup?”

    Cashier: “What’s IN it?”

    Me: “You know; what’s it made with?”

    Cashier: “Broccoli. Oh, and cheese.”

    Me: “And … what else?”

    Cashier: “That’s all.”

    (We didn’t eat there.)

    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!)
