Fast Food Doesn’t Mean Fast Customers

, , , | Right | August 16, 2018

(I work on the drive-thru for a popular fast food restaurant. I wish I had a dollar for every time this conversation went down, for I’d be so rich I could buy an island.)

Me: “Welcome to [Restaurant]; may I take your order?”

Customer: “Hi, I’d like… uh…”

(The customer then proceeds to sit there for two minutes umming and ahhing over the menu into the speaker-box, asking about different products, asking what meals are best for the prices, wondering if there is any way to make changes to burgers to make them something else, holding up the line, and making cars wait. Then, finally, after I have answered each and every single one of those questions, often times they end up putting in an order and then cancelling, which confuses the heck out of the kitchen.)

Customer: “You know what? I’ll just have a cheeseburger. I’m not that hungry, anyway.”
