Two Too Early

| Westlock, AB, Canada | At The Checkout, Employees, Food & Drink, Time

(I pop in for lunch at a well-known fast food chain. This fast food chain switches from their breakfast menu to their lunch menu at 11 am. I check my watch to see it’s 10:58. I decide to try for lunch anyway.)

Me: “Hi! Is it too early to order a cheeseburger?”

Clerk: “We don’t start serving lunch until 11.”

Me: “But it’s literally two minutes until 11.”

Clerk: “I said we don’t start serving lunch until 11!”

Me: “Okay. In that case, I’ll be back in two minutes!”

(I go use the washroom. When i come back out, my watch says 11 am, and the menus have been switched over to the lunch menu. I go back to the same clerk.)

Me: “Hi! I’d like to order a cheeseburger.”

(I get my cheeseburger… and a death glare!)

Can’t Have Your Cake And Eat It

| OK, USA | Coworkers, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Health & Body

(I’ve been diabetic type 1 since I was eleven, but my coworkers think they know how to manage diabetes better than I do. They’re always very uneducated about diabetes, but this coworker took the cake. This happened during my break on a slow evening.)

Coworker: “I hate needles. If I had diabetes, I would eat whatever I wanted anyway!”

Me: “I would too, but I’d like keep my limbs and organs.”

Coworker: “That can happen?!”

Me: “What did you think would happen if I just stopped taking insulin?!”

Coworker: *grabs the cake I was eating* “Oh, then you CAN’T have this!”

(I told you she took the cake.)

They Are Totally Out Of Tune-a

| London, UK | Employees, Food & Drink, Lazy/Unhelpful

(I have just started a new job, and have been trying out a few local cafés for lunch. I find one I like, and start going there once or twice a week. They have a menu written on a big blackboard with various sandwiches, toasted panini sandwiches, salads, and other hot food.)

Girl: *working behind the counter* “Hello, what can I get you?”

Me: “A tuna pasta salad, please.”

Girl: “Sorry, what?”

Me: “A tuna pasta salad.”

Girl: “Tuna…? Salad…?” *looks dubious and goes to get the owner*

Owner: “Yes? What would you like?”

Me: “A tuna pasta salad…”

Owner: “Tuna? We have tuna and sweetcorn?”

Me: “No, sorry; I mean the tuna pasta salad. The one from the salad menu.” *points to blackboard*

Owner: *speaking as if he thinks I might not be understanding him* “We have tuna. Tuna and sweetcorn, for a sandwich. You want a tuna and sweetcorn sandwich?”

Me: “No, no, on your salad menu. Look, it says ‘Tuna pasta salad.’ I presume you don’t have any?”

Owner: *looks at menu* “No. We don’t have that.”

With Great Bacon, Comes Great Stupidity

| Baltimore, MD, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

(My dad and I are out and decide to get lunch at Wendy’s rather soon after the Baconator comes out.)

Drive-Thru: “Welcome to Wendy’s. Can I take your order?”

Dad: “Can I get a cheeseburger meal with a Diet Coke and a Baconator meal with a Sprite?”

Drive-Thru: “Do you want bacon on that?”

Reorder The Order In Which You Order

| Hillsboro, OR, USA | Employees, Food & Drink

(I regularly stop by a popular fast food restaurant on my way to work and I always order the same thing. This time the employee tries to remember my order before I give it.)

Employee: “Number three?”

Me: “Five.”

Employee: “Medium?”

Me: “Large.”

Employee: “Barbecue sauce?”

Me: “Sweet and sour.”

Employee: “For here?”

Me: “To go.”

Employee: *laughs*

Me: *also laughing* “By the end there I was starting to think you were doing it on purpose!”
