All Hot And Bothered About The Hot Sauce

, , , | Right | July 18, 2020

I cashier at a chicken/Tex-Mex fast food restaurant. A woman and her boyfriend come in, order their food, and wait. Everything has been normal up until this point.

It’s getting near closing time so I start my cleaning for the night. I gather my supplies and go to clean the bathrooms. We have a bell out front that customers can ring on the way out as a “good experience” kind of thing. I suddenly hear the woman repeatedly ringing the bell, followed by screaming.

Customer: “HELLO?! HELLO?! DOES ANYONE WORK IN THIS PLACE? WHAT THE F***?! WHO THE H*** DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?! DON’T F****** IGNORE ME! HELLO?!”

I walk out to see the woman from before running around the lobby, causing a ruckus. Thank the heavens no other customers are in the store.

Me: “Uh, hello? Ma’am, do you need help with something?”

She ignores me and just keeps going on and on. I notice her boyfriend is seated at a table with his head in his hands.

Me: “[MANAGER]!”

The manager comes out from the back.

Manager: “Ma’am? Ma’am! What seems to be the issue?”

Customer:Well. I tried getting the attention of one of your employees but he just ignored me and disappeared into the back of the store!”

Manager: “Right… I’m going to guess he didn’t hear you—”

Customer: “I cannot believe you employ people who just ignore customers and go all willy-nilly to do whatever they please while someone is here that needs to be served!”

Manager: “Did you already place your order?”

Customer: “Yes.”

Manager: “Okay, what did you need?”

Customer: “I was going to ask for some hot sauce.”

Manager: “There’s a bin to your left that should be stocked with various condiments.”

Customer: “Well, you’re rude, too. Hard to believe, right?”

Her food comes up.

Customer: “I was going to eat this here, but since you all suck so much, I’ll be taking it home. Come on, [Boyfriend]! Let’s go!”

She turns and leaves. Her boyfriend takes a deep inhale, sighs, and stands up to leave.

Boyfriend: “I’m going to hear about this for the next few days.”

My manager subtly flipped the bird at the woman and walked away into the back of the store.
