i made this post a long time in NC, but I'll do it again because why the hell not.


What is the stupidest thing someone has said to you at work? Customer, co-worker, boss, whoever.

Mine!

When I was a server, a guy said he wanted fish and chips but didn't like cod, so I suggested he try the tilapia that is served with the fish tacos.

I told him it was delicious (truth!) but slightly different from a traditional fish and chip dinner - the tilapia is fried and about the same size, but it's triangular and it's breaded as opposed to battered.

We discussed the whole tilapia-vs-cod thing at great length and he decided to go with the talapia.

He get his food and immediately sends it back because the fish "is the wrong shape."

SERIOUSLY YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS.

I was ringing one of our regular customers at the restaurant one day and he gave me a credit card.
I slid it through the machine and thw black part came off. I am freaking out thinking I managed to break his card and trying to figure out what to say and he says "I swear it's not fake".
I looked a little close at the black part that came off. It had tape on the edges. Someone had been using a fake card for a while but we had so many regulars we couldn't figure out who it was. The owners called the cops on him. But had he never opened his mouth, I would have thought it was my fault!

My maiden name is Sanchez. A coworker once asked me, "Are you Mexican or married to a Puerto Rican or something?"

Um.

Okay, here is mine. I'm a librarian. A woman approaches the desk:

Her: "I'm looking for a book"

Me: "Sure! What's the title?"

Her: "I don't know."

Me: "Okay,who is the author?"

Her: "I don't know. It's about a missing kid."

Me: "Is it fiction or non-fiction?"

Her: I don't know."

Me: "Is it a new book or an older book?"

Her: "I don't know. My co-worker was reading it the other day." *looks at me expectantly.*

Seriously?? It's not like we keep a list of everything her coworkers read!

 Oh,I remembered another one.I worked in a coffee shop for a while.Had a customer come in one day and order a "dry" french vanilla cappuccino.Not a minute after she gets it she storms up to the register wanting a refund. The excuse? "It tastes like COFFEE!"

 Really?!!?
