    Failed Question Number One

    | IN, USA | Food & Drink, Job Seekers

    (My restaurant’s policy is to give everyone who comes in for a job interview empty cup for a complimentary drink while they wait.)

    Interviewee: “Hi, I’m here for an interview at [time]?”

    Me: “All right. Here, I think I’m supposed to give you this.” *hands her a drink cup* “Sit down somewhere over there and I’ll tell a manager you’re here.”

    Interviewee: *standing there awkwardly holding the cup* “Is this for a drink or do I need to pee in it?”

    Me: “Uh, it’s for a drink.”

    Needs To Ketchup With The Order

    | Reno, NV, USA | At The Checkout, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I’m craving dessert, so I stop by a fast food place on my way home from work.)

    Me: “I’d like a regular sized chocolate shake, and a chocolate peanut butter pie, please.”

    Cashier: “All right. Pull forward, please!”

    (I do, and pay.)

    Cashier: “Would you like any sauce or ketchup with that?”

    Me: “…”

    Cashier: “…Oh, probably not. Right?”

    Me: “Probably not.”


    | USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Love/Romance

    (I’m going out for dinner with a friend while on break from work. We’re paying separately, but sitting together. Note: I’m a female; he’s a male. We go up to order, so I go first.)

    Me: “Yeah, I’d like a [Combo], for here.”

    Cashier: “Okay!” *turns to my friend* “And you?”

    Friend: “Oh, I’m paying separately.”

    Cashier: “Haha, very funny. What would you like?”

    Friend: “No, we’re separate.”

    Cashier: “What, you’re making your girlfriend buy her own dinner? What kind of man are you?!”

    Me: “The kind that’s not dating me. Can I just pay already?”

    Cashier: “No, your BOYFRIEND will pay for you.”

    (I’m tired of the cashier. I frequent this location often, so I know most of the staff, except for this cashier.)

    Me: “Get the manager.”

    Cashier: “Well, fine! Sorry for trying to get you two to act like a couple!”

    (She leaves and gets the manager, who sees me.)

    Manager: “Hey, [My Name], what’s the problem?”

    Cashier: “Her boyfriend’s saying they aren’t together and won’t pay for her food.”

    Manager: “[Cashier], hold on.” *turns to me* “What’s up?”

    Me: “She’s not listening. I’m paying for my own food; my friend’s paying for his. Can we order, please? I don’t want to be late getting back to work.”

    (The manager looks over at the cashier.)

    Manager: “[Cashier], this is the fifth time since you started. Go sit in the back. I’ll talk with you when I’m done.” *turns back to us* “I’m sorry about that.”

    (I got my food, and got back to work on time. The next time I went, the manager told me the cashier had been fired. She had apparently refused to serve couples if the girl paid for anything.)

    Separate Employees For Separate Tickets

    , | TX, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (We don’t really get a lunch break at my job. We usually call an order in somewhere so one of us can pick the order up. Since I usually don’t mind going after our meals, it’s usually me who calls the order in and goes after it. This time, we choose a fast food chain that’s popularly known in Texas. We’ve never done orders with them over the phone before, so it’s my first time to call in.)

    Employee #1: “[Burger Chain], what’s your order?”

    Me: “Hi, yeah, I have multiple orders. I need them on separate tickets. Is that possible?”

    Employee #1: “Huh? …Uh, hold on.” *mumbling on other end*

    Employee #2: “What’s your order?”

    Me: “I have three separate orders. Is it possible to do multiple transactions on separate tickets?”

    Employee #2: *pauses* “Uh, let me see. Hold on.”

    Employee #3: “[Burger Chain].”

    Me: *getting exasperated* “Is it possible to do multiple transactions and get them on separate tickets? I need them split up, because I’m paying for the orders separately. I need multiple tickets.”

    Employee #3: “Let me ask.” *muffled to someone else* “What’s multiple tickets?”

    Me: “Hello?”

    Employee #3: “Yeah, hold on.”

    Employee #4: “What are you asking for?”

    Me: *slowly* “I have multiple orders, but I need them to go on separate tickets. Can I do this over the phone?”

    Employee #4: “Oh. Yeah, you can do that. Just a sec, okay?” *passes it back to the previous employee*

    Employee #3: “What do you want to do?”

    Me: “I just need separate…” *sighs* “You know what; I’ll just come in to order.”

    Employee #3: *cheerful now* “Okay!” *hangs up*

    A Significant Dress-Down

    , | Dallas, TX, USA | Bad Behavior, Employees, Health & Body

    (I am at the soda fountain getting some water.)

    Worker: “That’s a really cute dress!”

    Me: “Thanks, I got it at [Store].”

    Worker: “Are you pregnant?”

    Me: “No!?”

    Worker: “Oh, that dress just makes you stick out a bit.”

    (This particular location now has a new one-star review…)
