We’re Not Yanking Your Chain Here

, , , , | Right | January 16, 2022

When I was fifteen, I was working in the drive-thru at a fast food chain. I was handing this man his change when he grabbed my wrist and tried to yank me out of the window.

I pulled back really hard and slammed the window on his hand. He sped off without his food.

My panic attack was so bad that my manager begrudgingly sent me. I quit two days later.

Not The Worst Kind Of “Horny” Customer, I Guess

, , | Right | January 15, 2022

A customer comes through the drive-thru and talks to my coworker.

Customer: “Do you read the Bible?”

Coworker: “No, I’m not religious.”

He started yelling things like, “The end is near!” After going through the drive-thru, he went through again blowing a trumpet. If I didn’t witness it myself, I wouldn’t have believed it.

The Terrible Tuesdays

Our chicken shop runs a sweet half-price deal on Tuesdays every week. Every day of the week, without fail, this happens.

Customer: “Hi, can I get the Tuesday special?”

Me: “Sorry, it’s Wednesday.”

Customer: “Just press the button so I can have it.”

Me: “Sorry, the button is only on the register on Tuesdays.”

Customer: “What’s the difference? It’s just a day!”

Me: “Yeah, sorry, Tuesday’s the day for the special — only Tuesday. Not Wednesday.”

Customer: “Well, I got it last week!”

Me: “On Tuesday?”

Customer: “Yes, so why can’t I have it today?”

Me: “BECAUSE IT’S NOT TUESDAY!”

Every, single, day!

Too Lazy To Be Saucy

, , | Right | January 12, 2022

This morning, I was in a fast-food restaurant. Another customer was at the counter picking up her food.

Customer: “Can I have some [sauce]?”

Worker: “It’s in the bag, ma’am.”

Customer: “Well, I don’t see it and I don’t feel like looking for it!”

I was so appalled.

Making A Meal Out Of It, Part 7

, , , , , , , | Right | January 11, 2022

I’m taking a man’s order at the register. I repeat everything back to him because we’re both wearing masks and he’s particularly hard to understand.

Customer: “I’ll have two sausage and egg muffins.”

Me: *While putting in the order* “Okay, just two muffins?”

Customer: “And two hash browns.”

Me: “Two muffins, two hash browns.”

Customer: “Yes. And a coffee.”

Me: “A medium cappuccino?”

Customer: “No. Large.”

I change his order in the register to be one meal, and then an extra hash brown and an extra muffin. This will save him at least $2. He is checking the order on the customer-facing display as I enter it.

Me: “Okay, sir, I’ll put that in a meal for you; it’s a bit cheaper that way. The total’s $17.25.”

I explain what I am doing so he will know to order it that way next time, instead of just changing it myself and not telling him.

Customer: “No! I do not want a meal! All I want is what I told you.”

Me: “Sir, what you’ve ordered makes up a meal. It’s the same items but a bit cheaper for you.”

Customer: “A meal will be more expensive! I do not want a meal!”

Me: “A meal will save you a few dollars. It’s the same food but cheaper.”

Customer: “I. Do. Not. Want. A. Meal.”

Me: “Okay, if you’d prefer to pay a bit more for it, I can change it back. Your new total is $19.80.”

Customer: “Oh. Do it the other way, then.”

I was just trying to help him pay less next time he orders, but honestly, I don’t know why I bother sometimes.
