I figure that a lot of us work so we can get that little extra dough to spend on music cd's, DVD's, and whatnot. I just wanted to start this thread to hear some of the zanier stories in the food distribution engineering sector Posted Image I'll eventually think of one for myself.

The best question I've ever had a customer ask me, is:

"Do you have real chocolate milk or (snidely) do you guys make it?"

Of course, I could only reply:

"Well, if you mean does it come to us pre-mixed or do we add chocolate syrup to the milk, we add chocolate syrup. But of course, you do know that even if it comes pre-mixed, someone else still had to make it since there are no such things as chocolate cows!" Posted Image

I was a waiter many moons ago... I remember going to a table with hot coffee on the tray and tripping. It went all over a woman's back !!!

This was pre-McDonalds-coffee-litigation, but I thought for sure the restaraunt and I would be sued after she recovered...

Fortunately she was wearing a sweater with a heavy shirt, and she wasn't hurt. It ended up being the mother of a waitress at the restaurant. Figures, I was desparately trying to always impress this particular waitress and get a date. It never did work out...... Although she did say I was a "nice guy". The story of my life !

A few years ago when I was a server I was waiting on this couple, obvious first date. I was patiently waiting for the "gentleman" to get off his cellular phone so that I could get their order. He's sitting there yakking away, impressing his lady friend and the phone starts to ring. I had to excuse myself and run off. Posted Image

Ha ha what a fool. I bet that was their last date together and rightfully so; he was a cellular phony. Posted Image

The obvious way out of this sticky situation is to act as if he was having a call waiting feature work. She probably never would have known the difference.

How did you keep from laughing at that guy?
