A Bag Day To Quit Bagging

| Germany | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid

Me: “Hi. I’ll take [Burger] with a large diet [Soda].”

Employee: “Sure. Will this be a takeaway?”

Me: “Yep.” *being really eco-minded and knowing they pack everything several times in this particular chain* “But I don’t need a bag for the burger.”

Employee: *looks at me dumbfounded for about 20 seconds, then grabs a bag*

Me: “Excuse me. Thank you, but I really don’t need a bag.”

Employee: *looks dumbfounded again for quite some time, then bags the burger nevertheless* “Here you go.”

(I walk out and go sit in the car. A friend who was ordering at the register next to me comes out shortly afterwards.)

Friend: “Did you really just cause a guy to bluescreen because you didn’t want a bag?”

Lettuce Start Again

, | AB, Canada | Coworkers, Food & Drink, Health & Body

(I’m working in the kitchen with a partner.)

Cashier: “Hey, [My Name] and [Coworker], that sandwich on your screen with no onions is for a customer with allergies. Make sure you wash your hands before making it.”

Me: “All right, thanks.”

(We both wash our hands. When we come back and start making the burger, a thought occurs to me.)

Me: “Wait, [Coworker], didn’t you accidentally spill onions into the lettuce while restocking the table a few minutes ago?”

Coworker: “Yeah?”

Me: “Crap. Okay, hold on, I’ll open a new bag of lettuce just to be safe.”

Coworker: *pauses, then tosses some of the old, onion-filled lettuce on the sandwich* “Eh, it’ll be fine.”

Me: *stunned*

(Before he can pass the burger to the front, I grab it off the table and wordlessly throw it in the trash, before remaking it with fresh lettuce. I hear my coworker grumbling.)

Me: “You realize we could have very well sent that person to the hospital if we let them eat that, right?”

Coworker: “I figured they were lying!”

Me: “And you felt safe taking that risk?”

Coworker: *shuts up*

Has Only Salad Between Their Ears, Part 2

| BC, Canada | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I have developed a liking for a meatless wrap offered by a popular fast food chain. I go to get one for lunch.)

Cashier: “What can I get you?”

Me: “I’ll have the Mediterranean veggie wrap, please.”

Cashier: “Crispy or grilled?”

Me: “Sorry?”

Cashier: “Crispy or grilled chicken?”

Me: “Oh, no, I wanted the veggie wrap.”

Cashier: *rolls eyes* “I KNOW. CRISPY OR GRILLED CHICKEN?”

Me: “…”

Cashier: “…OH. Veggie. Right.”

(She didn’t listen to the next guy in line either.)
