Reliving The Same Slice Of Life

, | Poolesville, MD, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Ignoring & Inattentive

(I go to the local pizza place.)

Me: *places order*

Cashier: “Okay, will there be anything else?”

Me: “Nope.”

Cashier: “May I have a name?”

Me: *gives name*

Cashier: “Is it for here or to go?”

Me: “For here.”

Cashier: “Will there be anything else?”

Me: “You already asked that.”

Cashier: “I’m sorry; I meant, can I have a name?”

Me: “You already asked that as well.”

Cashier: *laughing from embarrassment* “I’m sorry. I meant is that for here or to go?”

Me: *face-palming at this point* “Again, you already asked that. You are just repeating yourself.”

Cashier: “I’m so sorry. I’ve had a really long day.”

Scratch That Whole Year Off

| ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid

(I am trying to buy a scratch ticket and because I look my age I’m often asked for my ID. Because I got my driver’s license before I turned 19, it says on the license of the year I turned 19.)

Cashier: “So you’re not 19 until April…”

Me: *confused* “No, I’m 20 in…”

Cashier: *confused look*

Me: “I was born in 1996.”

Cashier: “S***, forgot it’s 2016.”

(So not only did she get my birth month wrong, but also the year, and the fact I needed to be only 18 to buy a scratch ticket. Impressive.)

Don’t Want To Cause A Latte Trouble, Part 2

| Cambridge, England, UK | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I go into a branch of a well known coffee shop.)

Me: “Tall black decaf, please.”

Barista: “Black decaf what?”

Me: “Tall black decaf coffee, please.”

Barista: “Yeah, but what kind of coffee? Cappuccino, latte?”

(I was tempted to ask for a black cappuccino but she seemed confused enough already.)
