  1. I have two comments:

    1) The pizza with double pepperoni looked perfect.

    B. I want a pair of those small beer mugs.

  2. To be fair, wait staff get an awful lot of idiotic requests, and some of these, while mis-hearings, seem at least to have tried to address what the server *thought* the customer wanted. And the small beer in Germany is “ein Kleinebier” which every bar gives free of charge as a taster so you can choose which one to order.

    1. Are you actually named Edward, or are you deliberately mimicking my often overly analytical comments? If the latter, I don’t really understand what your endgame is.

      1. Perhaps “Edward” is merely a social construct, and when that presence is needed, the world conjures it into being.

    2. It’s a very good impression, I have to say. It would be easy to take your good natured pedanticism, push it up to 11 and be mean spirited about it. It didn’t occur to me for even 1 second that it wasn’t a genuine Edward.

  3. OK but I think the Bella Italia one was an improvement on the original order. I’d just shove my face in the box and go at it.

  4. Do you think the Moroccan fruit salad came with the bananas open with bites missing? If so that’s a bit unusual.

  5. If you ordered a “coffee with cream” in Australia, you’re most likely to get the same result as Germany. You see Americans we actually put real milk in our coffee.

    1. A lot of people in the US put real milk in their coffee, too. I didn’t know other people didn’t have coffee creamer though. It comes in all different flavors, you might like it.

  6. They had to have seen them putting all those pickles on that sandwich… that wasn’t a mistake. Also, ew.
    And that pepperoni pizza creeps me out somehow.

  7. When I was in the hospital, I called for lunch and asked for a cheese quesadilla…. I got cheesecake. Not a terrible mistake.

  8. I once ordered a rye and ginger (ale) from a very young server, who brought me a tumbler of rye whiskey and gin.

  9. I once went to a golf course and ordered a grilled cheese sandwich. I was in a hurry and thought, that will be quick and you can’t screw up a grilled cheese sandwich. Boy was I wrong. The girl making it used a hamburger bun and Kraft Singles. She mashed the bun down as hard as she could and proceeded to burn it. It was far and away the worst grilled cheese sandwich I’ve ever had.

  10. A few of these look like the person taking the order was either joking or stoned (the fast food ones), but c’mon people. Why would you go to another country and order something that’s non-traditional or not on the menu and expect anyone to know what you’re talking about?

  11. One time at McDonald’s I ordered a double cheeseburger hold the pickles. I got a double cheeseburger with nothing but pickles, oh and no cheese.
