We’ve all got our cute tastebud quirks. Some of us enjoy slapping some crispy bacon on our waffles. Or drinking milk with roast beef. Or eating an entire block of beet chocolate on the park bench because we’re too lazy to make lunch. (All true for me, by the way. Please, don’t judge.) But some food and drink requests push the limit on strangeness and raise the bar on weirdness by a mile.

Ask anyone who’s worked in the food service industry longer than a day and they’ll talk your ear off about all the incredibly bizarre things that customers have ordered from them. That’s exactly what people did on Twitter when Kyle shared his weird request story and asked others to pitch in with their own.

While you’re scrolling down and upvoting the stories that made you say, ‘What?!’, let us know what the weirdest request you’ve ever heard from a customer was. We just hope you don’t lose your appetites, dear Pandas!

I had a guest ask for Cholula (a brand of hot sauce) for his pancakes. No butter, no syrup. Just Cholula.

Kyle’s tasty thread got a whopping 76.3k likes and over 8.5k retweets (including the normal kind and the fancy ‘quote’ kind) and opened our minds to the possibility that life on Planet Earth is much more interesting than we give it credit for.

Stories like these really make you think whether the customer’s always right. Do you just give them what they want? Do you do a double-take and look at them like they’re a green alien from Mars? Or do you outright refuse to do what you suspect might be bad for their bodies?

At the end of the day, as long as they’re perfectly polite and look like they’re able to make informed decisions, our customers really are always right. At least as far as eating and drinking strange combinations goes.

Besides, a combo that makes someone gag just from the thought of tasting it might be what someone’s body craves and needs. Our bodies, while similar in many ways, are also very different. And that’s beautiful. Watching someone order an espresso with orange flavoring might make your jaw drop and your eyes pop in wonder.

If you’re a server, barista, or barman and you find yourself overwhelmed, take a moment to breathe in, relax, throw on a smile and give the customer the best gourmet abomination they’ve ever tasted. Just smile and wave.

Haha, sounds like my mum. The only way she could eat things like sausages and steak is if they were burnt. But since she turned 50 she did a whole 180 and is no longer that fussy. She still prefers her steak well done just not burnt.

That's not screwed up. It's probably harmless fun between mates. They might put s**t on him because it's funny, and he might know to expect it and is clever enough to avoid it. It doesn't mean men are being cruel. It's just the sort of s**t men sometimes do with each other for fun, and cliche as it sounds it can build character. It's the men who can't handle it and who misinterpret it who are usually those who have issues.

That's a "bullet coffee". It's sometimes used for dieting. You drink this in the morning; the caffeine will start your metabolism (and your day) the butter (the real kind, not margarine) will give your body just enough energy not to go in starvation mode. Than first meal after that is lunch. I've tried it couple of times, it's not as disgusting as it may sound. Just velvety/creamy coffee. Perfect breakfast for light mornings/hurry. (Just don't overdo on the butter.)
