    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!”

    Their Service Skills Don’t Cut (Out) The Mustard

    , | Denver, CO, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (It’s been a long day, and I just want some quick dinner so I pull into the drive-thru.)

    Me: “Can I get a pretzel burger with no mustard, please?”

    Worker: “That doesn’t come with mustard. It comes with lettuce, tomato, onion and honey mustard.”

    Me: *facepalm* “No honey mustard then, please.”

    (Sure enough, when I get home and take a bite out of my burger, it still has honey mustard on it.)

    Having Beef With A Lack Of Chicken

    , | Mexico City, Mexico | Employees, Food & Drink

    (My parents and I have an order to go, receive it, and leave. Upon detecting something funny, we go back to complain.)

    Employee: “Was there something wrong with your order?”

    Dad: “Look at it, and you tell me.”

    Employee: *upon re-opening the wrapped burger clearly labeled ‘chicken teriyaki’’* “…There is no meat.”
