    Acting Like A Complete Jerky

    | England, UK | Bad Behavior, Coworkers, Food & Drink, Liars/Scammers

    (I work with a rather attractive 20-something woman. She is okay, but gets away with murder and often gets tea or coffee brought for her as she is the only attractive woman in the office.)

    Coworker: *to me* “Wow! What’s that?”

    Me: “Oh this? It’s jerky. Really good stuff.”

    (The attractive coworker’s head pops up.)

    Coworker: “Let’s see.”

    (I throw the closed packet over.)

    Coworker: *as he throws it back* “Hmm, looks really good.”

    (The attractive coworker hasn’t stopped listening.)

    Me: “Yeah, bit pricy but tastes great. Texture is soft really good.”

    Attractive Coworker: “Are you going to share it out, then?”

    Me: *a bit put back* “Well, I wasn’t opening it yet. Maybe …later?”

    (I forget about it for a few days. The next week I open it up and leave it out of sight on my desk. I leave the office and come back to see the attractive coworker quickly walking back to her desk.)

    Me: “Hey, [Coworker], I’ve opened up the jerky. Want a piece?”

    (I can just see out of the corner of my eye the attractive coworker, stuffing something in her mouth.)

    Me: “It’s bit spicy, though.”

    (I hold the bag out to the attractive coworker, who waves me away as she is struggling to chew ‘something’.)

    Me: “…and it only gets hotter as you chew.”

    (At this point the attractive coworker’s eyes are watering at she almost dives for the bin, spitting out the jerky she stole before running out the door.)

    Coworker: “Serves her right, silly cow. She is always trying to get something for free even if she doesn’t like it.”

    (Now, every time I bring something in, I’m always quick to mention that it is a bit spicy. I haven’t caught her taking anything since.)

    Didn’t Drink This One Through

    | Auckland, New Zealand | At The Checkout, Employees, Food & Drink, Money

    (This particular sandwich restaurant has a $6 meal combo which includes a sandwich, small drink, and cookie. Separately, a sandwich and cookie come to $6.50. As a poor University student I’m trying to save money any way possible, so I usually get the combo. However, this day I already had a drink with me and didn’t need another one.)

    Me: “I’ll have the sandwich and a chocolate chip cookie please.”

    Cashier: “That comes to $6.50. Would you like to upgrade to the $6 combo and get a small drink for 50 cents less?”

    Me: “I only want the sandwich and cookie, but can I get the deal and just not have the drink?”

    Cashier: “No, you have to pay $6.50 if you’re not getting the drink.”

    Me: “Well, I’ll take the deal then and just ‘forget’ the cup.”

    Cashier: *getting frustrated* “No, you must take the cup and have a drink if you get the deal.”

    Me: “Fine. I’ll take the drink.”

    (The cashier hands me a small cup and straw.)

    Cashier: “That’s $6 please.”

    (Immediately after I paid I turned around and put the empty cup and straw in the bin next to me and walked off with the rest of my meal. He looked furious!)

    Ordered And Disordered

    | Stamford, CT, USA | Bad Behavior, Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (I ordered a pizza online from a rather well known pizza chain at about 10:15 pm. I am monitoring the progress of my order with their online ‘pizza tracker’ when it says my pizza has been delivered but I never received it. We have just had a big snowstorm here and the conditions are still pretty of slippery so I wait another 15-20 minutes before deciding to call and just get an update.)

    Me: “Yes, hi. I placed an online order about an hour ago and it is showing as delivered. I haven’t received it, so I just wanted to make sure it was just an error and see what time I should expect the delivery person?”

    Pizza Employee: “Conditions are slippery. Our drivers are running late.” *click*

    (I am a little put off but figure that I’m not the only one calling and they are probably tired. I wait until 11:15 and still no sign of the pizza. I call again, hoping to get another person who will be a little more helpful.)

    Me: “Hi, I called before about a pizza I ordered…”

    Pizza Employee: *yelling* “Roads are bad! Wait is 1 hour 40 minutes!”

    Me: “Yes, I know the roads about bad but I’m confused. My tracker says it was delivered and I am trying to figure out if it was accidentally delivered somewhere else or if it’s just because of the weather…”

    Pizza Employee: *with a palpable attitude* “Fine! Then we cancel your order!!”

    Me: “No, I didn’t say that. I don’t want to cancel it. I just want to know what is going on and when I should expect the delivery person. It’s almost 11:30 pm. Should I wait until midnight?”

    Pizza Employee: *click*

    (I am floored at how rude he is and decide to call back and actually cancel my order.)

    Me: “Hi. I just called and was HUNG UP ON while asking about the wait for my pizza. Please cancel my order. I will be writing to your corporate offices.”

    Different Pizza Employee: “Oh, okay.”

    (No apology for the other workers unacceptable behavior, nothing. The kicker? The poor delivery guy showed up with the pizza not five minutes later and it turned out they never were going to cancel my order, even though I asked them to!)

    That’s What They Both Said

    | LA, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers, Food & Drink, Rude & Risque

    (I have just got off work on the overnight shift at a big box store. I am picking up a few grocery items before heading home. Among my items are a few cucumbers. The cashier ringing me up is a lady I was friendly with when I was a cashier a few years prior.)

    Cashier: “Oh, you making a salad when you get home?”

    Me: “Yeah. I like to eat something kinda light for my ‘dinner.’ I know its seven am but it’s dinner to me!”

    Cashier: “True. Wow, these cucumbers are huge!”

    Me: “Aren’t they? And those are two of the small ones. I don’t really like the big ones. The seeds are too big.”

    Cashier: “And see, me? I like the big ones! I like a lot of seeds in mine!”

    Me: “Well, go get you some when you get off. They are huge. I’m sure they’re full of seeds. And leave some little ones for me. These big ones are too much for me.”

    Cashier: “Oh, yeah, I was just thinking I’m gonna have to go get some of these big boys.”

    (I pay and gather my bags.)

    Me: “Thanks, you have a good day. Oh, and by the way… I can’t believe we just had that conversation with straight faces!”

    Cashier: *eyes get wide and bursts out laughing*

    Not The Right Four-titude For Service

    | Brisbane, QLD, Australia | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Math & Science

    (I am at a small takeaway store with my boyfriend getting dinner. We decide on our orders and it begins time for me to place my order.)

    Me: “Hi. How are you? Can I please get a small chips and eight cheesy nuggets?”

    Cashier: “I’m sorry. We only have packs of four nuggets.”

    Me: “Yes.”

    Cashier: “So, you can order four if you would like?”

    Me: “What’s four plus four?”

    Cashier: “Eight.”

    Me: “Correct! So I would like eight cheesy nuggets.”

    Cashier: “I can’t. I’m sorry.”

    (Giving up, I asked my boyfriend to order four so I could have the eight I wanted.)
