H2-Only A Little Bit Bigger

, , , , | Right | September 17, 2019

(A customer has just pulled up to the drive-thru speaker. This happens before I can greet them. The coworker in this story often has friends coming through the drive-thru, nearly all of whom are generally annoying.)

Customer: “[Coworker] is a f*****!” *laughter*

Coworker: “What?!”

Manager #1: “[Coworker], tell your friends to get out of the drive-thru.”

Manager #2: *to the customer in her pretending-to-be-happy while ticked off voice* “What can I get for you today?”

Customer: “A cheesy cheddar burger…”

(I start ringing it in as the second manager continues talking to them.)

Manager #2: “All right.”

Customer: “Three waters… Three big waters. Not the little tiny ones.”

(I, being on drive-thru, am assigned to make drinks for orders. Our water cups are about 12 ounces; the next size up is about 16. While I know that he means he wants large cups, I start filling the 16-ounce cups.)

Me: *to Manager #1* “If they ask, they didn’t specify how much bigger.” *wink*

(Needless to say, they were not exactly ecstatic about the “big” cups or my manager’s explanation.)
