A Combo Of Errors

, , , , | Right | March 9, 2020

(One of my friends has recently gotten a job at a fast food restaurant that I have worked at for almost a year. I am in the kitchen and she is in the drive-thru but I am helping her with any questions she might have.)

Friend: “Hello, what can I get you today?”

Angry-Sounding Man: “I want the number three meal, large size.”

Friend: “All right, and what to drink with that, sir?”

Angry-Sounding Man: “I don’t want a drink.”

(It takes my friend a moment to say anything and I can tell she’s confused. I remind her that she can’t ring up a meal without a drink.)

Friend: “I’m sorry, sir, but you can’t get a meal without a drink.”

Angry-Sounding Man: *sounding even angrier* “I don’t want a drink and you can’t make me get one! I want the meal without the drink and I’m gonna get it.”

Friend: “I’m sorry, sir, if you don’t want the drink I’ll have to ring it up separately.”

(The man said that was okay but then got to her window and asked her to change it to the meal without the drink. I guess he didn’t realize it was the same person… although she was the only one taking orders and the only one wearing a headset.)
