I’ll Have A Burger With A Side Of Fries And Precognition

, , , | Right | February 12, 2020

(I’m training a new girl on the register, so even though I’m there, I’m not directly dealing with customers. I’m just making sure she’s doing everything correctly and answering questions. A lady walks up to our register and orders her food.)

Customer: “I’m also going to be ordering food to go; should I order it now or later?”

Me: “Well, you can order it now, and we’ll wrap that part to go and it will all be on one ticket, or you can order it before you leave.”

Customer: “I might wait until later. How busy will you be?”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but I can’t predict the future.”

(It actually came out of my mouth before I had the chance to stop it, but it’s the truth! And when she ordered the to-go order, there wasn’t anyone else in line.)
