What is the stupidest thing someone has said to you at work?

Posted by   + Show Post

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.

Someone I knew came in to the 7-11 I was working at and says, "Oh wow! You work here?" Mind you,I'm standing behind the counter, wearing a uniform shirt. "No, they just let me come in 8 hours a day and wait on customers." shit you not, she looks at me dead serious and says, "That's so weird, they should at least pay you." She.was.not.joking.

"What does the combo plate come with?"

"Pork fried rice and a pork eggroll."

*gasps and makes a face as if I had just told them it was served with a side of steaming dog shit*

"I do NOT eat pork!"

Oh sorry, you weren't wearing your "I DON'T EAT PORK" shirt, so I couldn't tell.

I worked as a lifeguard and would get asked by people that if they drowned, if I would save them. Guys would always ask if I could do mouth to mouth on them. It was very annoying.
