Choose Your Burger Battles

, , , | Right | November 8, 2020

I work at the pickup window and hand out food and drinks to drive-thru customers. I have literally just clocked in, and I hand the woman at the window her food. She looks through the bag for a second and then turns to me.

Customer: “You forgot my burger.”

Me: “I’m not seeing a burger on your order. Are you sure you ordered it?”

Customer: “YES! Here, I’ll show you my receipt.”

She digs through her glove box and pulls out a receipt. She scans over it then looks at me with a smug grin. The customer is pointing at nothing in particular on the receipt:

Customer: “See, honey. It’s right here. Now, why don’t you be a good boy and fetch me the burger you forgot?”

There’s no burger on the receipt but I just want her to leave.

Me: “Right, so sorry, ma’am, I’ll just grab that real quick.”

I tell my coworkers to make a plain hamburger; I don’t know if she wanted a plain hamburger but that’s what she’s getting.

Me: “Okay, here’s that burger you ordered.”

Customer: “Yep.”

Me: “Have a nice day, ma’am.”

She flipped the bird and burned rubber out of our parking lot. I closed the window and audibly sighed.
