Glossy Kiss And Make-Up

| KY, USA | Coworkers, Health & Body

(It’s a slow day and most of our cleaning and stocking chores are done so we’re all talking while we have some down time. One of our coworkers pulls out a tube of lip gloss and begins applying it in the middle of the floor despite already wearing heavy makeup.)

Coworker #1: “What are you doing?”

Coworker #2: “I’m putting on lip gloss, duh.”

Coworker #1: “But why? We’re at work. Since when do we need to wear makeup?”

Coworker #2: “Well, I happen to work around people all day and I’m sure the customers feel better when I wear makeup.”

Me: “You know, our dress code actually states that heavy makeup is prohibited and that the most we should be wearing is a foundation with very small amounts of eyeliner or mascara.”

Coworker #2: “Well, I need to wear this makeup. I’ve gotten a bunch of compliments on it.” *flounces off*

Coworker #1: *to me* “A customer told me she looked like a gothic whore so I don’t think it’s working out for her.”

Gluten Intolerance Versus Gluten Ignorance, Part 2

| NY, USA | Bad Behavior, Employees, Food & Drink, Health & Body

(I always ask for no onions on my burger, but they always put onions on my burger every time, almost like they are doing it on purpose. Today I try something new.)

Me: “I would like a burger with no onions.”

Cashier: “Why not?”

Me: “I’m gluten free.” *I am not gluten intolerant*

Cashier: “Oh, I’m sorry, I’ll make sure you don’t get any onions.”

(I don’t think I was totally in the right, but they made my burger correctly!)

Not How Diabetes Works But Okay

, | MI, USA | Bosses & Owners, Food & Drink, Health & Body

(I’ve been working at a fast food restaurant for a month and a half at this point, but I have yet to learn everything. I’m making an iced coffee with flavoring when one of the managers comes over to the drink station with an order of her own.)

Manager: “That’s a lot of stuff in there. What did you put in?”

Me: “Cream, flavoring, and liquid sugar. Why?”

Manager: “Oh God, dump that out. You only put the liquid sugar in if there’s no flavoring.”

Me: “Oh, okay.”

(I dump out the concoction and start doing it correctly while my manager works on her drink.)

Manager: “That was going to have too much sugar. That was practically diabetes waiting to happen.”

Me: *without hesitation* “Like the rest of our food?”

Manager: “…Touché.”

Take A Swig Of Swine

| San Antonio, TX, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Workers, Food & Drink

(It’s the late 90s and there is a popular new sandwich. We are going through the drive-thru to get dinner, it was very late…)

Worker: “Welcome to [Fast Food Place]. What can I get you?”

Husband: “I’d like a [Popular New Sandwich] with bacon to drink.”

Worker: *without missing a beat* “Sir, we here at [Fast Food Place] can do many things, but we cannot give you bacon to drink.”

(I wish you could tip fast food workers!)

What’s The Twenty?

| Frisco, TX, USA | Bosses & Owners, Criminal/Illegal, Employees, Money

(I am out at a wings place with the family, and the total comes out around $80.)

Waitress: “Here’s your check, sir.”

(I pay with a $50 card, a $25 card, and a 20 dollar bill and the waitress runs it through and then shows us the receipt.)

Waitress: “All right, we ran your cards. Now we just need $6.11 for the rest of the meal.”

Me: “Uh, no. I gave you a $20 bill, remember? I explained everything…”

Waitress: “Oh, I’m sorry. Let me go see if I dropped it.”

(I wait around three minutes and the manager walks up.)

Manager: “Hi, my name’s [Manager] and I’m the manager here. I hear that you paid $20 bucks but the waitress is saying differently. I’ll try to go in the middle here and pay for the rest of your meal but I’m sorry about your other $15.”

Me: “No, that’s not happening. I gave it to that girl and explained how I was paying and everything. I’m not losing $15.”

(The waitress comes running.)

Waitress: “Oh! Here! I found it the trash…”

(Waitress walks off to get the new receipt.)

Manager: “Oh, uh… I’m so sorry about that.”

Me: “No… I don’t think you are, because you were just going to side with her and sit here and call me a liar. You can’t tell me that you believe her story. Unbelievable. You need to talk to her about stealing my money.”

Manager: “Yes, sir. We will definitely talk to her about it.”

(Manager walks off and Waitress comes back with receipt.)

Waitress: “Here’s your receipt. Sir, you don’t have to be so rude.”

(The waitress walks off immediately and starts fake cleaning tables.)

Me: “Are you kidding me?”
