    The Sad State Of Kate

    | OH, USA | Employees, Ignoring/Inattentive, Language & Words

    (I’m a female with a typically male name, and people often get confused when I tell them what it is. In this instance, I’m at a restaurant where I have to give my name.)

    Employee: “And what name should I put on the order?”

    Me: “Caden.”

    Employee: “Katie?”

    Me: “C-A-D-E-N.”

    Employee: “That’s a weird way to spell Katie.”

    Make Room For A Close Working Relationship

    | USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Tourists & Travel

    (My father is a doctor, and is going out of town to a meeting along with two other doctors, one male and one female, from the hospital where he works. They arrive at the hotel where they are going to stay and the other male doctor checks in without a problem. He leaves to go to his room, and the female doctor checks in. My dad then goes up to check in, at which point its discovered that because of a technical error, my dad’s reservation was cancelled.)

    Employee: *with a worried look at the computer, then at the female doctor, then at my dad* “So, how well do you two know each other…?”

    Spanking For Attention

    | Baton Rouge, LA, USA | At The Checkout, Bosses & Owners, Employees, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I’m in line at the express lane of a local grocery store, which happens to be located right by the liquor section. The cashier on duty is a teenager and the guy ahead of me has alcohol, which she cannot sell him.)

    Cashier: “Hold on. One moment.” *turns to Coworker* “Hey, can you ring this guy through? He has some beer and I’m not allowed to do it.”

    Coworker: *ignores her and starts acting busy*

    Cashier: “Okay, then…” *getting on the intercom* “Paging [Coworker #2] to the express lane. Assistance required.”

    (Nobody comes. She pages three more times, even paging other coworkers, but no one comes. At last she spots the manager at the customer service desk and calls to him, again getting ignored.)

    Cashier: “I am so sorry everyone. I am trying.”

    Customer: “You want me to go over there and slap him on the butt?”

    Cashier: *calling the manager one last time; this time he hears her* “If he hadn’t responded just then I would’ve said yes.”

    (I hope her night got better!)

    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.)

    Providing A Stripped Down Service

    , | Dothan, AL, USA | At The Checkout, Bosses & Owners, Health & Body, Rude & Risque

    (It is 1999, and I am a cashier at a fast food restaurant in the local mall that is known for their fried chicken sandwiches. I am two months pregnant at the time. A very large woman approaches my register, wearing a skimpy two-piece outfit and accompanied by a male carrying a clutch style purse. She proceeds to order two of our most popular sandwich combos.)

    Me: “That will be [price].”

    Her: *turning to the male* “Baby, pay the lady.”

    (After searching the purse for a minute…)

    Him: “The money is not in here!”

    Her: “Yes, it is. Dump it out on the counter.”

    (He dumps the purse and the female searches with no luck.)

    Her: “Hang on. I think I put it in my bra.”

    (She digs around but comes up with no money.)

    Me: “We can also take a check.”

    Her: “I don’t use checks. I got paid last night at the club. I have the money.”

    (She starts patting herself down and when she feels her back area…)

    Her: “I found it! Must have stuck it in my panties.”

    (As she started digging into her panties, a wave of morning sickness hit me and I had to excuse myself. I ran into the kitchen area and told the manager to finish with the guest up front. When I returned, my manager was washing the money in our dish sink with sanitizing solution and told me to never do that again. He said the money was wet and smelly. Turns out the female was the star performer at the local strip club.)
