Hoping To Hear What You Want

August 13, 2012

Customer:  What kind of soft drinks do you carry?

Server:  Coke, Sprite, Diet Coke, Lemonade, and Iced Tea.

Customer:  You don’t have Mountain Dew?

Server:  Coke, Sprite, Diet Coke, Lemonade, and Iced Tea.

If you know what kind of food or drink you are looking for, just tell me. Don’t make me run through the list of things that we carry because that’s just more time that I have to spend talking to you.

    Same way with Salad Dressings!
    Server: and with that you will get a choice of our house salad with a citrus vinagette or a caesar salad
    Customer: i will take the house salad with Ranch please
    Server: Sorry sir we don’t have Ranch, just our house vinagerette
    Customer: You don’t have Ranch, what kind of place is this? Well what dressings do you have?
    Server: We have a Citrus Vinagerette, a Citrus Vinagerette and a Citrus Vinagerette. Which one would you like?
    Customer: I will take the Caesar
    Server: (Under their breath) Go figure, Jackass!

    The same rules apply to salad dressing choices. We have 13 choices, none of which are creamy Italian. If that is the only dressing you eat on your salad, why? Why? Why? Must you make me run through the ENTIRE list and then cancel your customized salad? Why? why? why?

    Greg and I must have posted simultaneously. His was not there when I initially replied. But it bears repeating. LOL!

    • LOL! This is great!!

      • javaj240 permalink

        Because it’s true. Incidentally, we just replaced our “traditional” French with Catalina. It has caused no end of confusion with the dining public.

      • Hahaha. This is cracking me up!!

  4. I nominated you for the addictive blog award. read@

    Back when I worked in fast food, it was the same with nugget sauces! We had about several different sauces and I HATED when people would ask for the whole list. “BBQ, Sweet & Sour, Hot Mustard, Honey Mustard, Ranch, Chipotle BBQ, Spicy Buffalo, Sweet Chili.” Had it memorized.

    • My favorite is when you go through the list of items, and then the person says, “Oh, so you have BBQ sauce?” instead of just asking for it in the first place.

  6. Or the: “What kind of Coke do you have?” question. That one always gets confusing….because Coke is Coke. They mean what drinks do you have, but use the universal “coke” term.
