    Making A Meal Out Of It

    | Turku, Finland | At The Checkout, Employees, Food & Drink

    (We have had a terrific, albeit busy, Sunday, making triple the amount we usually do. Due to this, me and my co-workers are a bit tired and slaphappy.)

    Customer: “Is it possible for me to get a [Product] meal?”

    Me: *deadpan* “No.”

    (The customer gets a heartbroken look on his face.)

    Me: “Oh, dear, I was only joking! I’m very sorry; we have had a very busy day and are not too sharp at the moment. Of course you can have your meal!”

    Customer: *laughing* “That’s all right. I’ve been doing inventory at my workplace for nine hours today, so I can sympathize!”

    No Knives Over The Chives

    | USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Food & Drink

    (My sister and I go out to dinner at a fast food chain. It’s almost empty, save for us and a small family. My sister gets a baked potato as a side. When we get our food, the cashier notices something.)

    Cashier: “Oh, s***! There’s no chives!”

    Sister: “Oh, that’s fine. I don’t really care for them.”

    Cashier: “What? Are you sure? We can get you something else if you want.”

    Sister: “Nah, it’s not a big deal. It’s fine how it is.”

    Cashier: “All right, uh, okay. Usually people throw a fit about this stuff.”

    Sister: “Oh yeah, I used to work at [Other Chain]. We got them all the time.”

    (The cashier insisted on refunding half my sister’s food, but she refused to accept it.)

    Po’boy Oh Boy

    | TX, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I head through the drive through of a popular fast food chain that serves fried chicken, and other items.)

    Me: “I’ll take a shrimp po’boy with fries and a Dr. Pepper.”

    Worker: “And would you like to add a drink for a dollar? Oh, ha. Right, yes?”

    Me: “…Yes.”

    Worker: “Spicy or mild?”

    (I’ve never been asked this for a shrimp po’boy before.)

    Me: “Um… mild.”

    Worker: “And what side?”

    Me: “Fries…”

    Worker: “All right, and what flavor drink?”

    Me: “Dr. Pepper…”

    Worker: “Okay, drive forward!”

    (When I get to the window:)

    Me: “That’s for the shrimp po’boy, right?”

    Worker: “Oh, yes, I’ll add that!”

    (Thankfully I got my order correctly.)

    Salesmanship Battles Are Best To Hug It Out

    | OH, USA |

    (My store has a promotion where if you donate a dollar to a charity, you get a coupon book for ice-cream. Because a lot of my coworkers don’t even attempt to sell the books, the store owner is giving prizes to the person who sells the most. The previous night, I sold 70 books, which put me past the total of my coworker, who is an older lady. The next day, she stands by my till.)

    Coworker: “Hey, [My Name].” *hugs me and starts crying*

    Me: *shocked* “What’s wrong?”

    Coworker: “Your total is higher than mine!”

    Me: “…Are you trying to get my salesmanship to rub off onto you?”

    Coworker: “Is it working?”

    Me: “Maybe.”

    A Smooth Operator

    , | Oakville, ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Bizarre/Silly, Employees, Food & Drink, New Hires

    (After work I go to get a cookie and a smoothie.)

    Me: “Hi, can get a [cookie] and a strawberry banana smoothie, please?”

    Employee: *throws her arms up in the air* “YAY!” *turns to the new guy she’s training* “YOU get to make a smoothie!” *turns to me* “I’ve been waiting all day for somebody to order one!”

    Me: *amused but somewhat at a loss* “Um… glad I could help with that?”

    (The new guy made a good smoothie!)
