    Some People Are Unable To Change

    , | Sydney, NSW, Australia | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Math & Science, Money

    (I am going through the drive-thru of a burger place. The total comes to $7.20, I hand the cashier $10.20.)

    Cashier: “Here’s your change” *hands me $5 note*

    Me: “No, that’s not right” *hands back note* “I gave you $10.20 and the change is $3.”

    Cashier: *looking confused at the note* “Um, but you gave me…”

    Me: “$10.20, I get $3 change.”

    Cashier: *hands me three coins snootily* “There you are, then.”

    Me: “You gave me three $2 coins…”

    Your Voice Croaked

    , | MI, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Health & Body, Technology, Top

    (I began losing my voice during my shift and got sent home early when I started to run a fever. The next day I call out of work, but I have no voice and my work doesn’t have email.)

    Manager: “Thank you for calling [Fast Food Place]. How can I help you?”

    Me: *tries to speak*

    Manager: “…Hello?”

    Me: *croaking noises*

    Manager: “I’m sorry, I can’t— Wait, [My Name]? Is this you?”

    Me: *coughing fit*

    Manager: “Press a button if this is [My Name].”

    Me: *beeeep*

    Manager: “Press two buttons if you can’t come in to work tonight.”

    Me: *beeeep beeeep*

    Manager: *laughing* “Okay, we’ll figure it out. Feel better.”

    (Two days later I’m well enough to go back to work.)

    Manager: “Hey, [My Name]!

    Me: “Hey, boss!”

    Manager: “…beep!”

    (From then on, whenever someone called out of work, my manager would beep at them before she hung up.)

    I’ll Go With Option Number Two

    , | Kitchener, ON, Canada | Employees, Food & Drink, Language & Words

    (We have recently gotten a new dessert: a pop tart ice cream sandwich. We are supposed to suggest it at the end of the order.)

    Coworker: “Will that be everything today?”

    Customer: “Yes.”

    Coworker: “Would you like an apple pie or our new poop tart— pop tart ice cream sandwich?”

    Didn’t Do Well With Pi At School

    , | Melbourne, FL, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I’m getting lunch and have asked for two slices of pizza.)

    Cashier: “Are you sure you wouldn’t rather have a personal pan pizza? It’s one and a half slices and it’s only a dollar more.”

    Shoot First, Ask Questions Later

    , | USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Employees, Food & Drink

    (It has been a really busy day and we are backed up about 30 minutes per-order. We have about five mini pepperoni pizzas left.)

    Me: “So, this is nothing compared to how Superbowl Sunday will be?”

    Supervisor: “Nope. It’s gonna be rough.”

    Me: “Man, can I just shoot myself now?”

    Supervisor: “NO! Wait until you are outside… and you have to get me first.”

    Me: “Aw, I don’t want to hurt you.”

    (My supervisor drops three of the last pepperoni mini-pizzas.)

    Me: “Never mind. You first.”
