    Cooked Just Like Grandma Used To

    | NS, Canada | Coworkers, Family & Kids, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive, Language & Words

    (Coworker and I are chatting about what we did the previous weekend:)

    Coworker: ”…and then we went over to my grandma’s house.”

    (The phone rings.)

    Coworker: ”Oh, just a sec.” *answering phone* ”Welcome to my grandma’s house…”

    (My coworker’s face immediately turns bright red. She quickly hands me the phone, runs out back into the kitchen, and bursts out laughing.)

    Me: *to the customer on the phone* ”Sorry about that. Welcome to [Restaurant]. How may I help you?”

    I’ll Drink To That

    | MO, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (I’ve just finished eating lunch and take my ticket to the woman at the counter, still holding my fountain drink which I have not finished.)

    Cashier: “One burger combo. Is that it?”

    Me: “Yep.”

    (I notice that she rings me up for my drink as well as my combo meal.)

    Me: “Oh, I didn’t get a refill or anything, so its part of the combo.”

    Cashier: “Drinks aren’t included in the combo.”

    Me: “Yes, they are. A combo is a burger, fries or tater tots, and a 24 oz drink.”

    (I point to the sign that is literally right behind her that lists what’s in the combo meal.)

    Me: “See?”

    (She stares at me for a moment, looking annoyed.)

    Cashier: “Fine.”

    (Without even looking at the sign she voids the order and just rings me up for my combo.)

    Acting Childish

    | Chapel Hill, NC, USA | Bad Behavior, Employees, Food & Drink

    Me: “Hey, do you think it’s okay for me to get a kids’ meal? There’s no age limit on the sign.”

    Cashier: *looking at his menu* “I don’t see why not. They’ll give you less food, though.”

    Me: “That’s fine. I don’t need a lot of food anyway.”

    (We get our number and get a table. Several minutes later, a waitress comes out with our food.)

    Waitress: “For future reference, you need to be 12 or under to order off the kids’ menu.”

    Me: “Why is that not on any of the menus, then?”

    Waitress: “…just for reference.” *walks away*

    Finally Grasped The Weighty Concept

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

    (I’m still unloading the cart when I notice something the bagger’s doing.)

    Me: “Excuse, me, I don’t think you should put the flimsy plastic clamshell of blueberries in the same bag as the 10 pound sack of potatoes.”

    Bagger: *cheerfully* “That’s okay. They’ll both fit.”

    Me: “No, the heavy potatoes will smash the blueberries.”

    (The bagger was speechless, with a look of complete shock, like that had never occurred to him before.)

    Green Food Makes Him Green

    | Tulsa, OK, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    Cashier: “What’s this?”

    Me: “That’s an artichoke.”

    Cashier: “Oh, I don’t like those.”

    Me: “How can you know? 10 seconds ago you didn’t know what it was.”

    Cashier: “Um… I don’t like green food.”
