    Five-Second-Rule Does Not A-Pie

    | Australia | Bad Behavior, Bosses & Owners, Food & Drink

    (I worked in the bars and food stalls at a big football stadium. It’s just before the gates open.)

    Coworker #1: *who works in another stall* “Everyone, I need your attention. Do not eat any of the pies for lunch today.”

    Coworker #2: “Why not?”

    Coworker #1: “I just saw [Boss] getting them out of the freezer. He dropped them on the ground. Every one of them scattered across the dirty ground. He dusted them off and put them into the warmers.”

    Toast Of Sandwiches Past

    | Vancouver, BC, Canada | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I’m calling in a take-out order to a restaurant that I order from frequently.)

    Me: “Can I please get a club sandwich on whole wheat bread?”

    Cashier: “I’m sorry; we don’t have whole wheat bread.”

    Me: “Really? Did you stop carrying it? I ordered the same thing last week, and you had whole wheat bread then.”

    Cashier: “No, we don’t have whole wheat bread. We just have whole wheat toast…”

    (I have no idea what to say to that without sounding like a smartass, so I sit in silence for a moment. I can practically hear the wheels starting to turn in her head.)

    Cashier: “Oh. I guess we can probably use that bread to make your club.”

    Me: “Sounds good.”

    Uncooked Pigs Don’t Fly With Me

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

    (My friend and I decide to eat at a Russian restaurant we have never eaten at before. We order some dumplings and a ‘Georgian sausage.’ The sausage, which is made of pork, is a very large one, which we share. It is when I cut into the center and try it that I realize it is still quite raw on the inside. We call over the waiter.)

    Me: “Excuse me, this sausage is undercooked, it’s still raw in the center.” *show the sausage*

    Waiter: “This is fine. It is cooked.”

    Me: “No, it’s not, and this sausage is made of pork, which is dangerous to serve undercooked like this.”

    Waiter: “The sausage is cooked. If you wanted it well done, you should have asked for it well done!”

    (We left without tipping, as we shouldn’t have to ask for pork to be ‘well done’!)

    Has No Problem With Their Drinking Problem

    | London, England, UK | Employees, Food & Drink, Health & Body

    (My friend is leaving to join the army and he and I both go out for a couple leaving drinks. My friend offers to buy the first round.)

    Friend: “Hiya, can I get… two ‘Irish Car-bombs,’ please.”

    (Those who don’t know what this is, it’s a half pint of Guinness served with a shot of Baileys with Jameson whiskey floated on top. The shot is dropped into the pint and then the whole thing has to be thrown back at once before the baileys curdles in the Guinness.)

    Me: “That’s it. I’m done. I hate Irish Car-bombs. LIKE, REALLY HATE THEM!”

    Friend: “Nope, you need to stay. Just this one and then were on normal drinks.”

    Me: “Fine. Let’s just get it over with.”

    (The girl behind the bar at this point has been silent.)

    Bar Girl #1: “Sorry, but what is an Irish Car bomb?”

    (My friend proceeded to explain the whole concoction in explicit detail and even help her float the whiskey on the shots. At this point a small crowd of bar staff has gathered to watch the show.)

    Me: “Dude… what have you done?! We have an audience now!”

    (At this point I think I’m safe, since I recognise the manager walking along the bar I’m hoping he will tell his staff to get back to work.)

    Manager: “What are we watching?”

    Me: “S***!”

    (As I prepare to drop the shot into the Guinness a cute girl at the bar chips in.)

    Bar Girl #2: “Good luck, sir.”

    (Never before has man been under such pressure to not screw up drinking. I drop the shot and neck the drink in what I consider record time only for more or less the whole bar to erupt into applause, young drinkers and older ones alike applauding. The guy at the bar pipes up.)

    Bar Guy: “Same again, lads?”

    Deaf-Defying Behavior, Part 2

    | FL, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Health & Body

    (My class is on a field trip to [Theme Park]. We are split into different groups. I have a fun time, but at the end of it I hear that for one of the groups there was an incident while they were at a restaurant.)

    Waitress: “What can I get for you?”

    Teacher Assistant: *makes her order*

    Waitress: “And what can I get for you?”

    Student: *looking at the menu*

    Waitress: “What can I get for you?”

    Student: *still looking at menu*

    Waitress: “Are you deaf or something?!”

    Teacher Assistant: *realizing what is going on* “Yes. She is. Now, can I speak to your manager?”
