Making Visit Number Two

| Wales, UK | Bad Behavior, Health & Body

(My job involves emptying the sanitary bins in women’s toilets, as well as replacing other hygiene-related matters. I’ve seen some random things left in bins, such as belts, cups, uneaten sandwiches etc. I arrive back at my yard when my boss comes up to me.)

Boss: “You’re going to have to go back to [Business] as they’ve just called saying one of their bins is full and smelling.”

Me: “It can’t be. I was there this morning.”

Boss: “I can only go by what they’ve said. Just unload the waste on your van and head over there, please.”

(I arrive on site, open up the bin, and immediately evacuate and call my boss.)

Me: “You’re not going to believe this, but someone’s actually pooped into the bin.”

Boss: “You’re joking?!”

Me: “Nope, just removed the lid and used it as a toilet.”

With No Bacon, Comes No Responsibility

, | WI, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Food & Drink

(I work at a burger joint. I’m working on making burgers, when a woman marches up and tosses her burger on the counter. I look up from my work as one of my coworkers moves over to her.)

Coworker: “Is there a problem, ma,am?”

Woman: “Yes, I ordered a bacon double cheeseburger. This doesn’t have bacon.”

(I know for a fact it does, as I was the one who made it. I also noticed she un-wrapped it, but didn’t bite into it or take it apart. My coworker signals for me, and I walk over.)

Me: “I’m sorry; I’m the one who made this. I’m sure I included bacon. Could you please check?”

(We do this so customers can’t complain if we handle their food after it’s already been made and given to them.)

Woman: *sigh* “Isn’t that your job?”

Me: “So you’re giving me permission to re-handle your food?”

Woman: “What do you think?!”

Me: “All right.”

(I open the burger up, and sure enough, there’s bacon there.)

Woman: “I want to see your manager.”

Me: “Sure, but may I ask why?”

Woman: “You ruined my burger; you shouldn’t have taken it apart to show me the bacon.”

Me: “…I’ll go get her now.”

(I got an official write-up for this! I’m sorry I was supposed to give customers x-ray vision, and have it myself.)

Refuses To Speak Starbucksian

| FL, USA | Bad Behavior, Food & Drink, Language & Words

(I’ve just finished handing off a drink to a customer at our pick-up counter. There’s a pair of ladies waiting to order at my register, and as I approach them, I overhear their conversation:)

Customer #1: “…Yeah, I just refuse to learn their language.”

(Our area has a fairly high population of non-English/English-as-a-second-language speakers. I brace myself to deal with “everyone should speak English,” until…)

Customer #2: “Really?”

Customer #1: “Yep! I just point to what I want.”

(Apparently, the ‘language’ she refuses to learn is ‘medium hot coffee with cream, please.’)
