    Taking Disorders

    | MI, USA | Bosses & Owners, Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I go through the drive-thru for our dinner. When I get home, I discover my wife’s burger is wrong. I return to the store.)

    Me: “I went thru the drive-thru a few minutes ago, and this is supposed to be a hamburger, but there’s cheese on it.”

    Manager: “Sir, I am so sorry. We’ll fix that right away.” *tells cook the correct order*

    (Another customer walks up.)

    Other Customer: “Excuse me, this is not what I ordered.”

    Manager: “I’m so sorry, ma’am, let me fix that.” *tells the cook correct order*

    (A few minutes pass.)

    Manager: “Here you are, sir. Again, I’m sorry for the mistake.”

    (As I turn to leave, another customer walks up to the counter.)

    Another Customer: “Hey, I just went through the drive-thru and my order is wrong.”

    Manager: *turns to the back* “WHO’S TAKING ORDERS BACK THERE?! THIS IS RIDICULOUS!”

    Totally Stupido

    | Buffalo, NY, USA | Employees, Food & Drink

    (I am really hungry and stop by an Italian restaurant that has “to go” options. I see something I want and ask the girl at the register for it.)

    Me: “Hi, can I please get a pepperoni calzone?”

    Cashier: *looks at me like I have two heads* “I’m sorry, WHAT?”

    Me: *pointing at the item on display* “That calzone right there. I’d like that.”

    Cashier: “Um, that’s stromboli.”

    Me: “Okay. Can I get that then?”

    Cashier: “Yeah, sure. What the h*** is a calzone?”

    (Please keep in mind – Italian restaurant.)

    Revenge With Cheese

    | AB, Canada | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Food & Drink

    (A coworker needs to pop out of the office for a bit to take care of some personal matters, and he asks me to come along. We get permission from our supervisor, slip out, get his errands done, and to thank me, we hit the drive-thru of a popular fast food restaurant and he buys me lunch. We return to the office and start eating our lunch at our desks.)

    Supervisor: “Oh, is that [Fast Food Place]? I love their burgers! And it smells so good! So…where’s mine?”

    Coworker: “Oh, sorry. We didn’t think to get you any.”

    (The supervisor gets visibly angry at this.)

    Supervisor: “After all I do for you! HOW DARE YOU NOT BRING ME ANY [Fast Food Place]’s burgers?!”

    (The next day, as it gets closer to lunch time, our supervisor pops out for a bit, and comes back with a bag from that same fast food place. She starts eating at her desk.)

    Supervisor: *loud enough for the whole office to hear* “Wow! These burgers are so delicious! And I only bought for myself! Because that’s what we do in this office! We only buy burgers for ourselves because we’re all so selfish! Oh, this burger is so good! And it’s all mine! None for anyone else!”

    Coworker: “Is she really trying to make us jealous with a revenge burger?”

    Me: “I think so.”

    Family-Style And Family Friendly

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

    (I am seven. Dad is disabled and raising us alone. Money is tight. My nine-year-old sister and I beg to go to the beach and he takes us crabbing, along with a friend of ours. It starts raining and after we pull in the crab pots Dad herds us all into a chowder restaurant to warm up and we all immediately beg for soup.)

    Waitress: “Four today?”

    Dad: “Uh, yeah, one second.”

    (The waitress gathers menus and watches us, soaking wet in over-sized obviously second or third hand coats shivering while Dad counts the coins in his pockets to see what he can afford. After a minute Dad lets her lead us to a table.)

    Dad: “Four waters, and uh, three cups of chowder please.”

    Waitress: “Three?”

    Dad: *nods and looks embarrassed*

    Waitress: “Okay, that will be right out for you guys.”

    (A few minutes she returns and sets a huge pot of chowder on the table with a big plate of warm bread and a stack of bowls.)

    Waitress: “Sorry, it was easier to serve it family style. Hope you don’t mind!” *she scurries off before Dad can say anything*

    (The family style ended up working out to two bowls of soup for each of us – including Dad – and she only charged us for the three cups. I’ll never forget her kindness, and wish we could have given a tip other than some shells and a half dollar coin.)

    Menu Is On A Diet

    | Mexico City, Mexico | Bizarre/Silly, Food & Drink

    (My sister and I stop by a fast food restaurant to eat. My sister’s always been someone who dislikes eating heavy, so she orders a salad.)

    Cashier: “And what drink would you like with the salad?”

    Sister: “A diet coke, please.”

    Cashier: “Sorry, we don’t offer diet coke with the salad.”

    Sister: “You don’t?”

    Cashier: “That’s right.”

    Sister: “Then why do you have the logo for diet coke in the salad menu?”

    Cashier: “I… I don’t know.”

    Me: “You know that’s called ‘false advertisement,’ right?”

    (When I said those words, the cashier’s eyes went wide and asked us for a moment to talk with her manager. She returned soon after with the requested drink.)
