Accurate post is accurate.
Reminds me of the time a lady told me whip doesn’t melt. Or a guy yelled at me for not understanding him/hearing him because he kept talking on the phone
For those in retail.
I worked in a Lil Caesars and a woman came in and wanted a sausage pizza with no sausage, but got mad when she was given a cheese pizza.
So when I worked at fitting room in Old Navy, a woman told me that a medium top was too small, and that the large top was too large. So she asked me to find her an “x-medium”. Old Navy carries x-small, small, medium, large, x-large, 1x, 2x and 3x. There is no “x-medium”. But she insisted, so I went and found her an “x-medium” (which was just a medium in a different color but the same top, same make, same EVERYTHING) and she goes very happily, “THIS! THIS FITS ME PERFECTLY! THANK YOU SO MUCH! See, you can do anything you can set your mind to!”
I’m a waitress at a big fancy resort, and once a woman asked me for a diet water and when I told her there was no such thing she demanded to see my manager (who then also promptly told her there was no such thing and brought her regular water).
Another occasion of stupidity occurred when a woman had been brought a steak cooked too much for her liking. I offered to take it back and bring her out a new one, cooked a little less, and she said “NO this one’s fine I just want you to cook THIS one a little less.” I then had to get the chef and have him explain why you can’t UNCOOK a steak.
When I was working at dunkin donuts there was this woman in the drive-thru who asked for a lightly toasted croissant and then started complaining that the croissant was warm. And wanted her money back, so she gave me the croissant back and I gave her the money and then she tells me “now i want my new croissant” she wanted a new one for free and as she was screaming at me this guy in a biker gang covered in tattoos leans over the counter in the store and yells “ma’am let me just tell you what we’re all thinking. fuck off, you stupid cunt.” I couldn’t stop laughing and she drove away in anger.
Most of the people like in the stories above know that they’re being totally irrational, but also know that if they complain enough they’ll most likely get something free or discounted. So really most of the the nonsensical fucks are actually just cheap fucks with no shame or respect for people.
ive been working in food service since i was 15 so ive got hundreds of stories but probably the best one involved the infamous starbucks cappuccino. anyone here who is/has been a barista probably already knows where this one is going. starbucks cappuccinos are espresso shots and basically all foam. but when you order a “cappuccino” from oh lets say a gas station, youre pretty much just getting a vanilla latte. so this one time a woman comes in a orders a cappuccino. i make it for her the way starbucks makes it. she storms back in, removes the lid, scoops out a hand full of foam and throws it on the counter screaming at me for “ripping her off”. my manager tried explaining to her this is how cappuccinos are made and what she was probably looking for was a vanilla latte. we gave her a vanilla latte, called it a cappuccino, she sipped told me this is how you properly make a cappuccino proceded to call me a “burn out idiot” and left the store. the woman called the district manager on me to try and get me fired and even sent a letter to headquarters about the incident. she apparently was refunded for her drink and got a gift card plus free drink coupons as an apology. i didnt loose my job but it was put on my review as a negative which lowered my raise even though my manager said i did nothing wrong. moral of the story, the customer is almost always wrong and you will get screwed for it one way or another.
I work at a movie theater. I’ve had customers tell me to “drown their popcorn” with butter and while I give them extra butter I don’t actually go overboard with it because for one thing it’s considered a safety hazard, and later they’ll return for their refill and hand me a butter-soaked tub and ask for “more butter this time”.
ok so im just gonna reblog and add to this pile of stories because lets face it working/handling other people’s food is harder for employees because we have to deal with people wanting it a particular way and they are super anal about it….its just all around terrible ok
but anyways, i’ve been working at dunkin donuts for about 3 summers now every time i go back its always something THATS for sure….but 1 particular lady in the store amazed me that someone can be so rude just to get something free (first time experiencing it….)
So basically from 5am - 10am is rush hour for all the business men getting their morning food going on before work and working the register (only) a non-morning person customer comes to my register and orders a breakfast burrito. now let me tell you when u come to dunkin donuts for a BURRITO dont expect much because its a DONUT place that serves breakfast foods ok… I ring her up and she gets her food. leaves. comes storming back 5 mins later shoving everyone else in line out of the way, interrupts the customer i am serving to tell me that i ripped her off—the burrito is too small. i tell her that thats the size it is and its always been…shes yelling at me like she expected a chipotle sized breakfast burrito and im mind blown like wow maybe you shouldnt come to a DONUT SHOP for a BREAKFAST BURRITO????? after finishing her rant she tosses the burrito on the counter, my boss refunds her money and instead of her LEAVING (mind you the customer i was helping IS STILL FUCKING THERE WAITING TO FINISH THE ORDER) she tells me to get her another brkfst sandwich…..my boss tells her the total and she makes a BIGGER SCENE about how she had to pay for this sandwich when she should get it for free for the small burrito..
like HOLY SHIT we give you the correct order and the standard size and its not good enough so u deserve the free food when we did nothing wrong!? AHAHAHA WOOOOW
i literally told her to either pay for the 3.59 sandwich she wants or to kindly step aside so i can finish the other ladies customer because im not dealing with that (the lady in line was nice enough to let her go too like jesus). luckily that rude lady left but HOLY FUCK FOOD SERVICE SUCKS SO PLEASE BE KIND TO THE FOOD SERVICE EMPLOYEES??? idk unless their total dicks about it ya know? but still
im so sorry you guys have to deal with such terrible people
I work at Hungry Jacks (Burger King) and gosh, there are hundreds of stories I could tell you.
Aside from the usual stupidity for example asking what size meal they’d like and getting yelled at like I should automatically know to calling out a regular meal for a customer, then have them complain that they ordered a medium (asdfghjk it’s the same thing).
On one particular occasion we had a customer put a dead fly in his burger box (with one bite left in his burger) then demand an entire New meal.

In my prison, In my cage,
I feel no hate, I feel no rage,
Loneliness eates away,
Parts of me I could never save,
Shadows and Monsters lurk in the dark,
Slowly they attack my heart,
My mind is full of darkness and despair,
Is there a way out of here?
In my prison, In my cage,
I die a little more each day.
My friend tries to photobomb panorama, instead panorama makes him a god.
lol I ran in front of the middle school band director when he was taking a long-exposure pic of the field while teching for our high school and…
is this attack on titan
Do you just ever love a person so much
But not in a sexual/romantic way
You just love them so much it’s not even a friendship
It’s like they’re your sibling or a platonic soul mate
You don’t want to make out with them or do sexual things
You just want to keep them close to you and protect them and be their friend for life
