Here’s Hoping The Kid Doesn’t Take After His Grandfather

, , | Right | December 1, 2020

I work at a fast food restaurant in my town. I open in the wee hours of the morning to keep the store clean for all you loving customers, especially with what is going on. You’re welcome.

Around 10:30 am we start lunch and we start to get busy quickly. A lot of parents will order kids’ meals for their children and maybe a small drink or coffee for themselves; I’ve noticed this pattern. My coworker is working in the back cash/first window. She takes orders and pays out the orders to keep the drive-thru moving.

Around 11:00 am, this older gentleman comes back to the drive-thru. My coworker opens the window.

Coworker: “Is there something wrong?”

Customer: “Yes, I just ordered this kids’ meal for my grandson. He can’t play with this toy!”

The man throws the toy at [Coworker]. It is a little Black Panther toy. Our store, along with all the others worldwide, are doing a thing with Marvel and their superheroes, so the first toys of the week are Black Panther.

Coworker: “Is there something wrong with it? Is it broken? I can easily replace it for you.”

Coworker: “No, he can’t play with it because he’s African American!”

I’m not sure if my coworker gave him another toy that was available or told him that was all we had available, but she kept the line moving.
