'Old lady putting a plate full of chicken wings in her purse': All You Can Eat Buffet servers share their craziest customer stories

'Old lady putting a plate full of chicken wings in her purse': All You Can Eat Buffet servers share their craziest customer stories

Anyone who has frequented an All You Can Eat Buffet establishment knows that things can get out of hand really quickly. Customers stay far too long, they overeat, they get sick, they eat more, and servers are left to clean up after everyone. It feel like a modern version of Roman Empire mayhem. Sure, it sounds lavish and over-the-top in theory, but in practice, it's all borderline disgusting. When I was in college, we had an All You Can Eat sushi place that once a year, had a Special Discount d…

'I forgive you': 20+ Customers who ordered absurd sandwiches

While working in sandwich shops, these cashiers managed to lose their appetites. After creating some truly monstrous sandwiches, these ones were memorable enough to tell the world about. When you ask sandwich shop workers to share the “strangest order you've ever had from a customer,” you end up discovering what people's favorite ingredients are. For example, more than one person had to make sandwiches that were completely covered in olives! They're known for adding a bit of salty flavor to a s…

Karen customer gets a taste of her own medicine at the burger drive thru: 'Hold on a second PLEASE!'

Many entitled people walk through life thinking they're the main character of the universe without a single person calling them out on their nonsense. Sure, dealing with entitled people is a difficult endeavor. Why would you want to put yourself through that? Well, the truth of the matter is that it's better for humanity at large to knock these folks down a peg and remind them that they are in no way better than the rest of us. So with that in mind, it comes as no surprise to us that the local…

'My 19 topping pizza': 20 Frightfully flavored pizza pies

'My 19 topping pizza': 20 Frightfully flavored pizza pies

Pizza is one of the most universally beloved foods (with the exception of these 20 pizzas, which are not loved). Sorry not sorry, there's just no saving most of these pies from their fate: the garbage can. I'm happy for the person who ordered the 19-topping pizza (first photo!). I really am. If you want to turn your pizza into a chopped salad of sorts, that should be your prerogative. Even better, this person got all of those extra toppings for free! That's the kind of order that makes the owne…

'A lady... brought in an entire rotisserie chicken to watch "Infinity War"': 30+ Unexpected movie theater snacks that viewers snuck past concession stand employees

If you've only ever snuck candy into a movie theater , you haven't lived. These people have snuck in full meals! For many of us, sneaking candy into the movie theater is a way of life. At least in my town, it almost seemed designed that way. The movie theater was in a strip mall, and just two stores down was a dollar store that had a massive candy section at the entrance. It was such a blatant candy display that I wondered if they'd partnered with the theater or something. In reality, they were…

'Micromanage me? Go ahead': Fast food workers band together to get micromanaging shift supervisor fired

'Micromanage me? Go ahead': Fast food workers band together to get micromanaging shift supervisor fired

Sure, it takes a detail-oriented person to manage a restaurant, but some supervisors are not cut out for it simply because they are too intense. These micromanagers tend to be unable to pivot if unforeseen circumstances arise. They also tend to be extremely frustrated when employees make judgment calls and handle their tasks differently. In other words, micromanagers rarely make genuinely good bosses. Instead, the only thing they are successful at is making enemies out of the people who work fo…

'Driver ate my food': Top Food Delivery Fiascos of the Week (April 24, 2024)

'Driver ate my food': Top Food Delivery Fiascos of the Week (April 24, 2024)

There is a plethora of ways in which a food delivery order can go wrong. Sometimes, it's an honest mistake. Sometimes, it's the customer's fault. And sometimes the person delivering your food is a bit too eager and bizarre. You know, the kind of guy who messages you after the delivery is complete. Perhaps it's about getting an extra tip or maybe it's even a flirtation no one asked for. Regardless, customers and delivery drivers alike are human, which means the capacity for errors and misjudgmen…

Fast food Karen throws back-to-back tantrums, gets herself arrested: 'Karen [ended up] sitting in the backseat of the police car'

It turns out that entitled customers are willing to go far for their extra ketchup! This Karen had the audacity to throw two ridiculous tantrums at the same McDonald's establishment within a short amount of time, as if the people who witnessed the first outburst would have suddenly forgotten. The result? She ended up in the back of a police car and wound up getting into way more trouble than she anticipated. The first temper tantrum involved not having the right amount of change to pay for her…

20+ Overcooked and majorly messy food fails

Food fails happen to all of us at some point. At least, I hope they do. I burnt an entire tray of bacon yesterday, and I'm a perfectly good chef who's nearly 30 years old. I put some bacon in the oven for 14 minutes at 400 degrees, thanks to the fastest Google search results. I was also making some scrambled eggs and pancakes at the same time, and, because I live my life on hard mode apparently, frantically waving a blanket in front of the fire alarm every minute or two. Lately, the fire alarm…

20+ bizarre food delivery stories: 'A grown man [who] insisted that I refer to him as Snow White'

Who hasn't had an embarrassing late night delivery story? We all get food cravings, especially after a long day or a night out. Sometimes, it's the only time you allow yourself to eat certain things. For me, that would be cookies and McDonalds. It happens more frequently than I'd like to admit, and when it does happen, I like to destroy all the evidence of the delivery once I'm finished eating and pretend like nothing ever happened. I mean, do calories even count after 11 p.m.? Though my intent…

'She's trying to overcharge me!': Fast food employee and manager bewildered by customer who won't pay an extra penny for meal

'She's trying to overcharge me!': Fast food employee and manager bewildered by customer who won't pay an extra penny for meal

Every penny counts , according to this customer. A debate stirs up every few years over the abolishment of the penny. The humble one-cent coin is rather useless in today's day and age. Gone are the days of penny candy---even dollar stores are quickly becoming $3-$5 stores. There's very little you can purchase for a dollar, and with the current rate of inflation, there's little hope that it'll improve any time soon. Back to the penny debate: every so often, people will petition to get rid of the…

'Karen doing as Karen does': Customer demands extra extra caramel at drive thru, worker maliciously complies

Be careful what you wish for, Karen! If you're the type of person who sends a drink back at a drive thru, let's clarify a few things first, starting with what are you asking for. If it's a major modification to the menu or an innocent mistake, perhaps reconsider, especially if the line behind you lasts an eternity. This is not a Michelin star restaurant; it's a drive thru. Second of all, remember the old “you get what you get and you don't get upset” saying? That doesn't just apply to your kid,…

'I put in my 2 weeks. And this is where it got fun': General manager reprimands employee over 'neutral' workplace review

This general manager has his crews filling out customer satisfaction surveys. Yes, you read that right. This fast-food GM decided to rig his customer satisfaction ratings by getting his employees to write them! It's one of the hallmarks of super-sketchy businesses. Companies that have satisfied customers don't have to beg their employees to help them get a 5-star rating on the internet. As you might imagine, that wasn't even the only unethical behavior going on at this company. The employee who…

'Ok then, I won't talk back': Fast food manager scolds new employee for 'lazing around,' gets upset when another employee calls her out

This fast food worker could've avoided trouble, but instead, they decided to stick up for a teammate . Working in fast food means knowing exactly when you'll be busy during your shift. If you clock in at 11 AM, you can bet that the lunch rush will be starting within the hour. Some places plan for this, and add in additional staff members to help with the rush. Another popular strategy is bringing in the newest members of the team to work during the mealtime crunch. Apparently they think that le…

'We do things my way now': Entire fast-food restaurant quits to protest entitled new manager

Hire a new manager and let her run the night shift on her own terms… what could go wrong? Turns out, almost everything, according to one of the workers, u/packrat2488. Night shifts at fast-food restaurants can be wildly unpredictable. Usually, there's a steady stream of people until about 2 AM. Then, from 2 AM to 5 AM, there's almost no one around, so the workers have a few minutes to catch their breath, take a break, and then start cleaning up the place. These hours in the middle of the night…
