    A Look That Could Shatter Glass

    | Germany | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Employees

    (I’m ordering a burger combo. The restaurant currently has a promotion for free coke glasses with each combo running, but I’m not interested in the glasses.)

    Cashier: “And here are your glasses.”

    Me: “No, thanks, I don’t want them.”

    Cashier: “All right.” *starts putting the glasses back*

    Lady Behind Me In Line: “Can I have them instead?”

    Me: “Sure!”

    Cashier: *takes the glasses back before I can take them* “No, you can’t have them. They’re for the combo only. I need to put those into the computer.”

    Me: “…All right, give me the glasses, then.”

    Cashier: “No.”

    Random Person In The Next Line: “Here you go!” *hands his combo glasses to the lady behind me*

    (The cashier looked furious.)

    Animal Madness

    | London, England, UK | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Pets & Animals

    (I go into a royal fast food restaurant near my home. When I enter, everyone behind the counter is wearing weird hats.)

    Me: “Err, what’s with the hats?”

    Cashier: “Oh, they’re wallabies. Do you want a giraffe, penguin, Martin, or duck-billed platypus?”

    Me: “Is there, like, a special going on? Because this is just completely crazy.”

    Cashier: “No, the manager’s an animal fanatic.”

    Me: “Right, anything else weird I should know about this place?”

    Cashier: “The manager buried former employees in the backyard behind us. He’s a bricklayer as well as a manager. Anyway, what would you like to eat?”

    They Are Largely To Blame

    | St. Pete, FL, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    Me: *ordering* “And lastly, I’d like the Dr. Pepper Vanilla Float.”

    Employee: “Okay, what size?”

    Me: “The smallest size you’ve got, please.”

    Me: *picking up at the window* “Wow! This is huge, and this is the small?”

    Employee: “It’s the large.”

    Me: “Oh, remember, I ordered the smallest size.”

    Employee: “It’s the only size we have.”

    Me: *puzzled* “Then why did you ask me what size?”

    Employee: “Because we have a regular and a large.”

    Me: “Oh, then I’d like to have the regular one, please, since out of regular and large, regular is the smallest.”

    Employee: *sighing and turning to a manager* “Can you help me with a refund? She ordered the wrong thing.”

    Beginning To Get Cheesed Off

    | CA, USA | Employees, Food & Drink

    (I’m on a road trip with my mother and a friend and have stopped in to get an early lunch at a fast food restaurant. I’m pretty shy and I usually let someone else order for me but my mom has gone to a different place and my friend is as shy as me.)

    Me: “Can I get a six-inch cheese sandwich?”

    Employee: “Sure what else do you want on it?”

    Me: “Nothing, just cheese.”

    Employee: *looks at me like I’ve grown a second head* “Seriously? You are so weird; I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone order that before.”

    Me: “Yep, just cheese.” *I smile awkwardly as I’m starting to get extremely uncomfortable*

    Employee: *proceeds to make my sandwich but continues making comments about it* “I get a lot of strange orders but I think this is the strangest.”

    (I’m wondering if she’s ever heard of a grilled cheese, or even a quesadilla for that matter.)

    Employee: “Like, are you sure you don’t want anything else?”

    Me: *starting to wonder if she’s on something* “Yes, I’m sure.”

    (A few comments later, my friend and I finally got out, both thoroughly confused.)

    Working The Twilight Shift

    , | OH, USA | Coworkers, Geeks Rule

    (Normally, I work the evening shift at the restaurant, but today I am working an earlier shift.)

    Coworker: “[My Name], what are you doing here this early?”

    Me: “I was scheduled to work from noon.”

    Coworker: “Can vampires get up that early?”

    Me: “Hey! I do not sparkle!”
