    I’ll Go With Option Number Two

    , | Kitchener, ON, Canada | Employees, Food & Drink, Language & Words

    (We have recently gotten a new dessert: a pop tart ice cream sandwich. We are supposed to suggest it at the end of the order.)

    Coworker: “Will that be everything today?”

    Customer: “Yes.”

    Coworker: “Would you like an apple pie or our new poop tart— pop tart ice cream sandwich?”

    Didn’t Do Well With Pi At School

    , | Melbourne, FL, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I’m getting lunch and have asked for two slices of pizza.)

    Cashier: “Are you sure you wouldn’t rather have a personal pan pizza? It’s one and a half slices and it’s only a dollar more.”

    Shoot First, Ask Questions Later

    , | USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Employees, Food & Drink

    (It has been a really busy day and we are backed up about 30 minutes per-order. We have about five mini pepperoni pizzas left.)

    Me: “So, this is nothing compared to how Superbowl Sunday will be?”

    Supervisor: “Nope. It’s gonna be rough.”

    Me: “Man, can I just shoot myself now?”

    Supervisor: “NO! Wait until you are outside… and you have to get me first.”

    Me: “Aw, I don’t want to hurt you.”

    (My supervisor drops three of the last pepperoni mini-pizzas.)

    Me: “Never mind. You first.”

    Late Down To The Lockdown

    , | AK, USA | Bosses & Owners, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I’m one of three people working the opening shift. Since the two managers arrive first, they’re supposed to unlock the doors every day for us employees. On this particular morning, the front door is locked. I go around back to the employee entrance and find it is also locked. A few attempts at knocking prove fruitless, so I finally come around to the drive-through window, where I can see the managers and vaguely hear a conversation.)

    Manager #1: *checking the clock* “Where’s [My Name]? She’s five minutes late! She’s NEVER late!”

    (At this point, I knock on the window.)

    Manager #1: “[Manager #2], you get it. Tell them we’re a little short today.”

    Manager #2: *looking out the window and waving at me* “Say, [Manager #1]? Are you SURE you unlocked all the doors today?”

    Manager #1: “Sure I did! Why?”

    Manager #2: “Because [My Name] is standing right outside this window.”

    Needs To Wakey Flakey

    , | USA | Bosses & Owners, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (The manager on duty is a bit flaky and we often have to remind her of things that she is supposed to be doing. One day she talks to a customer at the counter then walks away. Ten minutes later she still hasn’t returned and we start calling for her.)

    Me: “Oh, there you are! The counter has been calling you for almost 10 minutes.”

    Manager: “Well, you need to tell them to quit yelling because it’s disturbing to the customers!”

    Me: “Okay… What do you want me to tell the lady that’s still waiting for you?”

    Manager: “What lady?”

    Me: “The one on counter? You told her you would be back over 10 minutes ago.”

    Manager: “Oh, God! I completely forgot!”

    (She quickly gets the customer sorted and then turns back to us with a glare.)

    Manager: “Why didn’t anyone say anything to me?!”

    Coworker: “Why do you think we were screaming for you?”

    (We didn’t get in trouble but she was still blaming us all day.)
