    How To Cheese Someone Off

    , | Idaho Falls, ID, USA | At The Checkout, Food & Drink

    (I am about six years old. My mom, brother, and I go to a popular fast food restaurant which is a big treat for us.)

    Mom: *to me* “Tell the lady what you would like to eat.”

    Me: “I’ll get a kids meal with a cheeseburger, please?”

    Employee: “I’m sorry; our kids meals don’t come with cheeseburgers.”

    Me: “Okay, I’ll get a kids meal with chicken nugget, then.”

    Brother: *to employee* “I’ll get a kids meal with a hamburger?”

    Employee: “Would you like cheese on your hamburger?”

    Me: “…”

    Talking Turkey About Bacon

    , | Perth, WA, Australia | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (I’m in line at Well Known Sandwich Shop, and I ask for a six-inch sub with turkey and bacon. The teenager behind the counter nods and repeats my order.)

    Attendant: “Okay, so ham and bacon.”

    Me: “No, TURKEY and bacon, thanks.”

    Attendant: “Right, ham and bacon.”

    Me: “Um, no? TURKEY” *I point to the turkey*

    Attendant: “Yeah, okay the white ham.”

    (I’m gob-smacked, and then I moved down to pay, and I advise the cashier of what I ordered, she looks confused, until the teen yells down the line.)

    Attendant: “She had the ham and bacon!”

    Human Kindness Stretches Beyond A Dollar

    , | Shreveport, LA, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Workers, Food & Drink, Money, Top

    (A bunch of my friends and I are staying after school one day to go to a school function, and we decide we were hungry. There is six of us, and between us we have eleven dollars. Luckily, there is a fast food restaurant that has a dollar menu about five minutes away by walking.)

    Cashier: “Hello and welcome to [Restaurant]. May I take your order?”

    Me: “Yes, I have eleven dollars and need to feed six people.”

    (I go through the order, which was six burgers and four large drinks, which would cover everyone if we shared. Unfortunately, it cost a dollar more than we had.)

    Friend #1: “Okay, guys, empty your pockets!”

    Friend #2: “I have 68 cents!”

    (At this time I notice a man in line with two little girls and his wallet out. He pulls out a dollar and hands it to Friend #1.)

    Me: “Oh, my god, thank you so much, sir!”

    Friend #1: “That was so nice! Thank you!”

    (I pay for the food, and then the cashier pulls out four large cups so we can fill them at the drink fountain. As I’m passing them out, I hear two more cups being placed on the counter.)

    Cashier: “Don’t say I never did anything for you. Now, have a good day.”

    (This made our day, in between the random man helping us and the extra cups so everyone could get their own. We made the function in time, too!)

    When New Hires Become New Fires, Part 2

    , | Ottawa, ON, Canada | Bad Behavior, Job Seekers

    (I’m a woman in my early 20s working as the manager at a fast food restaurant. Just before Christmas season starts, an older woman comes up and slaps a resume onto the counter in front of my coworker.)

    Woman: “Look, I want a job! Give this to your manager!”

    Coworker: “Actually, she…”

    Me: “Just went out. Just make sure your availability is on it, and we’ll pass it along.”

    Woman: “Fine! I’ll be manager soon enough, anyway!”

    Me: *barely even looks at it before throwing it out after she leaves* “If she’s going to be like that applying, I’m not going to hire her.”

    Coworker: “Thank you!”

    When New Hires Become New Fires

    Needs To Wake Up And Smell The Wrong Coffee

    , | San Francisco, CA, USA | At The Checkout, Employees

    Me: “Medium coffee with two milks, two sweeteners, please!”

    Cashier: “Hot coffee?”

    Me: “Yup, medium coffee with two milks, two sweeteners.”

    (I watch in confusion as a medium fries is added, then voided, then an ice cream added, then voided. Then, to my horror, decaf is added, and thankfully voided, before I see two medium coffees up on the little screen.)

    Cashier: “Two coffees?”

    Me: “No, one coffee. Two milks, two sweeteners.”

    Cashier: *voids the 2 coffees, adds 1*

    Cashier: “One cream, one sugar?”

    Me: “No, two milks, two sweeteners, please.”

    (I pay, and watch as he fills my coffee, adding two sugars and no milk.)

    Me: “…Thanks.”

    Friend: “He probably needed that more than you do.”
