No Extra For Extra

| Right | July 21, 2016

(I work at a certain fast food taco restaurant. Our town’s 4th of July week carnival has started and as a result, we have been busy all for my entire shift, and I have stayed an hour and a half longer than I was scheduled to. I am in the office counting down a couple of tills before leaving, but I still have my drive-thru headset on.)

Coworker: “Welcome to [Restaurant]. How can I help you?”

Customer: *orders $20 or so worth of food, including a nacho platter* “Oh, on those nachos, could I get extra nacho cheese and extra sour cream?”

Coworker: “Sure.”

(He modifies the nachos and the changes appear on the screens inside and at the drive-thru.)

Customer: “Hey, I didn’t want to be charged extra for it!”

Me: *laughing* “Quote of the night.”

(When all was said and done, our sales that day were higher than any other day in the three years I’ve worked there.)
