21 of the Most Bizarre Things People Ordered at Restaurants

Despite dining out being a well-established practice, there’s always someone who acts like it’s their first time — both speaking to another human being and choosing something to eat. 

To that end, here are 23 times people ordered at a restaurant and made their server wonder, “What is wrong with you?”

I walked into the kitchen and discussed with my manager, because I had no idea how to enter that into our POS system. My manager and I

I had a lady once order a Penne With Chicken and Broccoli... a tasty dish to be sure, but the lady requested that we make it with spaghetti pasta instead of penne because she is allergic to penne.
