Driving Through Those Orders

| ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Food & Drink

(At my coffee shop I’ve just been switched from front cash to drive-thru. I’m not really paying much attention. This is all my bad.)

Me: *sees donut and coffee on the counter and passes it out the window* “Here you go, sir. Have a nice day!”

Customer: “But—”

Me: *shuts the window*

Customer: “Excuse me?”

Me: *begins taking next order over headset*

(The customer drove away, and I looked and saw his order was still on my till. Guess who got their donut and coffee for free?)


In Soviet Russia, Mustard Spreads You

, | Cape Cod, MA, USA | Food & Drink, Ignoring & Inattentive

(My mother, sister, and I going through the drive-thru at one of our local donut/coffee shops. At this particular location, they’ve just hired new employees who happen to be Russian. I’m the driver in this situation and my mother is in the passenger’s seat.)

Employee: *in thick accent* “Hi, welcome to [Donut Shop]. How can I help you?”

Mom: “Hi, can I get three [drinks] and a [sandwich] with no mustard.”

Employee: “We don’t have lobster.”

Mom: “No, I said no mustard.”

Employee: “This is [Donut Shop]. We don’t have lobster.”

My Family: *awkward silence*


Employee: “Okay… please pull up.”

(When we got to the order window, we had to repeat our order two more times! But we laughed about it for a long time after!)


Double Doubling The Work Load

| USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Food & Drink

(I frequent a coffee shop famous for its “double double” order. This happens every time I go to one, anywhere I’ve ever been in one.)

Me: “Can I get a large double double with caramel, please?”

Cashier: *baffled* “What?”

Me: “A large coffee with two creams, two sugars, and a caramel shot, please.”

Cashier: “Okay, so that’s a large double double with caramel.”


Your Order Is On Thin Ice

| Los Angeles, CA, USA | Employees, Food & Drink

Me: “I’ll have a regular green iced tea.”

Barista: “Do you want your iced tea hot or cold?”

Me: “…Iced?”


That’s Amy-Zing

| UK | Bizarre/Silly, Employees, Food & Drink, Funny Names

Me: “I’ll have a regular latte, please.”

Employee: “And what’s the name?”

Me: “Generic name.”

(She writes it and makes my drink. When I get my coffee, she had spelled it, “Jenny-Eric”)
