Taco Bell

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
This is true. The other day, my Mom went to Taco Bell. She asked for minimal lettuce on her taco. The kid behind the counter said "I'm sorry, but the only kind we have is iceberg."

That reminded me of another Taco Bell story. Years ago, when the first Taco Bell opened in my hometown, my brother went to try it for the first time. The cashier put a cup up on the counter after he placed his order (for his drink). My brother thought it was a tip cup, so he stuck a dollar in it.

That reminds me of the time that I went to a large Pet Supply store and asked a young clerk if they carried "Innova."

She said " No, we don't sell cars here."

Innova is a cat food.
A Nova is a car.

That's like the story going around about the customer that asked the counter clerk for "a half dozen chicken nuggets" and was told that "Sorry, they only come in packs of six and twelve." Makes you think it could possibly be true!

That reminds me of another one. 2-3 years ago I read that a cashier at Food Lion accepted a $200.00 bill and gave the customer change!

Hehehe, only iceberg. Heheheh. One time at Subway, I asked for "light lettuce" and they said they only have normal lettuce. I said, "okay, well just don't put a lot on it"

I worked at a store called Wacamaw Linen in Charleston SC 1984-1987 (approx). Once I had a customer ask if the beach towels were the kind for laying in the sun or the kind for drying off after swimming. I told her you could use them for both. My boss asked me why I didn't sell her 2 beach towels!

Then there was the person that wanted to know how much to water the artificial plant. When told it was artificial, they said, "I know", but still insisted they needed to know how much to water it!

Yikes! Sounds like some of the people I work with!!!
I actually had a girl who tried to weigh some cabbage by putting the scale on TOP of the cabbage then wondered why it wasn't working.
I had another incident with the same girl who honestly came up and asked me how to turn on the hot water in the sink in the back room. She was a piece of work, let me tell you!
Oh yeah here's a great one for you: I tell my cook one night to make sure he washes his baskets out really good ( because of all the oil and cheese and over all gunk that gets on it during the day) and he proceeds to say"why? they will just be used and dirtied again tomorrow. I think my mouth hit the floor on that one.
Yes, yes alot of restaurant workers are not the most intelligent group in the world let me tell you!!!!!!
But on the flip side, some of the customers make you wonder about their intelligence also. But I won't hijack the thread that way....

I was laughing my butt off and reading aloud to the rest of the office staff!

You should have heard me, reading them to myself here the first time I saw them. Anyone peeking in the window would have seriously think I'd finally lost my mind!
