    Menu Is On A Diet

    | Mexico City, Mexico | Bizarre/Silly, Food & Drink

    (My sister and I stop by a fast food restaurant to eat. My sister’s always been someone who dislikes eating heavy, so she orders a salad.)

    Cashier: “And what drink would you like with the salad?”

    Sister: “A diet coke, please.”

    Cashier: “Sorry, we don’t offer diet coke with the salad.”

    Sister: “You don’t?”

    Cashier: “That’s right.”

    Sister: “Then why do you have the logo for diet coke in the salad menu?”

    Cashier: “I… I don’t know.”

    Me: “You know that’s called ‘false advertisement,’ right?”

    (When I said those words, the cashier’s eyes went wide and asked us for a moment to talk with her manager. She returned soon after with the requested drink.)

    Don’t Quite Have The Process Down Pat(ty)

    , | Auburn, ME, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (I decide to stop by a fast food burger joint one day for a quick lunch. I don’t normally visit fast food places, so I’m not used to the menu.)

    Server: “What can I get for you today?”

    Me: “Ummm… those all look like specialty items. Is there an option for just a regular old hamburger?”

    Server: “Sure, just a plain hamburger?”

    Me: “Yes, please, and a small fries.”

    (I got my order, and carried it out to my car. When I opened up the bag, there was a small order of fries and the carton for the burger. I opened it up and found a plain hamburger inside… Plain, as in just a meat patty and no bun or anything else.)

    Getting Into A Pickle About The Burger

    , | Canada | Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I like a specific burger with extra pickles and no mustard or cheese. The workers can’t seem to understand it.  First restaurant:)

    Me: “Hello, may I please have a bacon double with no mustard, no cheese, and extra pickles?”

    Worker #1: “Sure thing!”

    (Hands me a burger with no pickles, extra mustard. Second restaurant:)

    Me: “Hi! May I have a bacon double, no mustard, no cheese, and extra pickles?”

    Worker #2: “Okay, first window.”

    (Passes me a fish burger.)

    Me: “Umm…”

    (Third restaurant:)

    Me: “Hello, May I have a bacon double, no mustard, no cheese, and extra pickles? And a vanilla frappé?”

    Worker #3: “Sure, would you like to try our new apple pies?”

    Me: “Why not?”

    Worker #3: “Okay, first window.”

    (The next worker passed me a burger, missing a patty, extra cheese, mustard, and lettuce. Lettuce doesn’t even come on the original. I also got two butter pies and a latte.)

    A Bit Light On Common Sense

    | ON, Canada | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    Order Taker: “Hi, can I take your order?”

    Me: “Yes, I’d like a chicken sandwich meal with root beer, light mayo, please.”

    Order Taker: “I’m sorry; I think we only have one kind of mayo.”

    (At this point, I decide it’s easiest to agree with her.)

    Me: “Okay. In that case, can I get the sandwich with just a little bit of mayo.”

    Order Taker: “Oh! Okay. Yeah, we can do that.”

    Missing Out A Slight Sprite Detail

    | Columbus, OH, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I’m in the drive-thru of a popular fast food chain and have just pulled up to give my order.)

    Me: “Can I get a medium #10 with a Sprite and a—”

    Employee: “A #10 with Sprite?”

    Me: “Yes, and a [Sandwich], too.”

    Employee: “A Sprite?”

    Me: “Yes.”

    Employee: “A SPRITE?”

    Me: “…Yes?”

    Employee: “A SPRITE?!”

    Me: “YES!”

    (I got a Coke.)
