Wasn’t Planning To Feed An Army Today

| USA | Food & Drink

(I am at a drive-thru where you can see the order on a screen. I am distracted for some reason and not paying close attention to the order listed.)

Me: “Hi! I would like a [Meal] with a [Drink] and an [Ice Cream].”

Worker: “Um… okay…”

(Muffled whispering in background.)

Me: “Is something wrong?”

Worker: “No, ma’am… Could you please read over your order to make sure it is correct?”

Me: *confused* “Sure…?”

(I read over the list and immediately realize the error: the machine reads that I have ordered 999 Meals, 58 Drinks, and 500 Meals I Didn’t Order!)

Me: *laughing* “OH! Oh, no, my order is [Order]!”

Worker: *laughing* “All right, then, your total is [Price]. Have a great day!”

They Cashed Out A While Ago

, | Streamwood, IL, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Money

(I go into a popular fast food place and order a chicken sandwich…)

Cashier: “Okay, swipe your card when you’re ready.”

Me: “Um, I’m paying with cash?”

(The cashier looks confused for a moment, then says hesitantly:)

Cashier: “Okay! Swipe your cash when you’re ready!”

Me: “…?”

Full Cream Ahead

| England, UK | At The Checkout, Bizarre/Silly, Food & Drink

(I go by a popular drive through to pick up some drinks; I get to the food window and find an ice-cream handed to me.)

Me: “Sorry, I didn’t ask for this.”

Worker: “Oh, sorry.” *goes to grab it*

Me: “Hang on, did I get charged for this? I didn’t get a receipt.”

Worker: “Uh…” *disappears*

(I’m waiting in the hot car for a few minutes with a half melted ice cream running down my hand.)

Manager: “What’s the problem?”

Me: “I was given this ice cream that I didn’t ask for. Before you have it back I want to know if I was charged for it.”

Manager: “Hang on.”

(He disappears again, eventually returning.)

Manager: “No, it wasn’t added to your bill.” *looking at my hand* “But have it free.” *slams the window shut*

(So thanks (I guess) for the free ice cream!)

Will Be Hearing About This For Months

, | BC, Canada | Bosses & Owners, Coworkers, Health & Body

(I’m about seven-months pregnant, although it maybe only looks like I’m five months. I walk everywhere because I don’t have a car, and my town doesn’t have transit, so I’m fairly active. The owner of the restaurant comes down for our staff meeting. I am on my break when he walks in.)

Owner: “Stand up.”

Me: “What? Why?”

Owner: “Just stand up.”

Me: *stands up*

Owner: “You’re not almost due. [Manager] said you’re almost due!”

Me: “Yeah, my due date is the middle of August.”

Owner: “No! What, is it a hamster?! I look more pregnant than you do!”

(I had to show him my ultrasound pictures. Everyone that was in the break room had a good laugh about that.)

Not Quite The Whipped Cream Of The Crop

| Canada | Food & Drink, Funny Names

(I am at a popular, worldwide fast food chain to get a quick breakfast. I have ordered my food and am starting to order my drink.)

Me: “And I’d like a small, caramel frappuccino.”

Cashier: *looks at me condescendingly* “We don’t sell frappuccinos here. What else do you want?”

Me: “I could have sworn you did? The blended iced coffee with whipped cream?”

Cashier: “Oh, you mean a frappe!”
