    (I’m in the drive thru and have just ordered a chicken pita sandwich. After a 5-10 minute wait, I pull up to pay.)

    Cashier: “I’m sorry; they didn’t let me know we are out of pita.”

    Me: “Oh, man, I didn’t want anything that was too greasy. What else do you have with chicken in it?”

    Cashier: “We have a chicken sourdough.”

    Me: “Ok, I’ll get that, but with no sauce.”

    (The cashier puts the order in and takes my money. I notice there are a couple of cars behind me.)

    Me: “Do you want me to pull around to the front?”

    Cashier: “You don’t have to if you don’t want to.”

    Me: “Yeah, but I’m pretty sure that the orders for the people behind me will be done before mine, so I might as well let them get their food.”

    (I pull around to the front and wait for about 5-10 minutes for my food. She brings it out to me. The sandwich has mayo on it. I go in.)

    Me: “I ordered this with no sauce because I’m allergic to mayo.”

    Cashier: “Oh, I forgot to put in no sauce!”

    (They make me another sandwich. I take it back out to the car and see no mayo, take a bite only to realize it’s beef, not chicken.)

    Me: “Um, I think at this point I should be getting my money back. This is beef. Not chicken.”

    Cashier #2: “Oh, I’m sorry.” *she goes back to the cook and tells her it’s chicken, not beef*

    Me: “AND NO SAUCE!” *I say it loudly hoping the cook would hear*

    (After another wait, the cashier brings me another sandwich.)

    Cashier #2: “Check it before you go out.”

    Me: “I was already planning to.”

    (I opened it and it was chicken, slathered in mayo. Finally, approximately an hour after I had first put in my order at the drive thru speaker, I finally had my food. And they ignored me when I asked for my money back.)

    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.”
