An Ugly Side Of Society Has Been Unmasked, Part 11

, , , , | Right | April 11, 2021

As I’m walking in to pick up my order at a fast food place, a guy not wearing a mask shoulders past two employees, ignoring them when they call out to him. The girl at the cash register steps back and speaks calmly.

Employee: “I’m sorry, sir, but we can’t serve you without a mask.”

Customer: “I’ll wait for my food out in my car, but you can’t make me put on a mask. I want—”

Employee: “Sir, I’m not allowed to serve anyone who isn’t wearing a mask.”

Customer: *Quickly getting agitated* “You people need to learn the g**d*** law. You can’t force me to wear a mask! You’re discriminating against me because of my political beliefs! What if I had a health condition?!”

Employee: “Sir, the sign says—”

Customer: “You’re all a bunch of f****** robots!”

Everyone else was very tense, and I saw one other customer start to reach for their phone, but luckily, the guy quickly stormed out, although not before flipping everyone off with both hands.

Their Reasoning Is Crap

, , , , , | Right | April 11, 2021

I’m at a chicken restaurant. A lady a couple of tables down from mine places her baby up on the table, obviously about to change their diaper right there on the tabletop. An employee quickly hurries up before the lady can actually get started.

Employee: “Ma’am, I’m going to have to ask that you do that in the bathroom.”

Customer: “Oh, it’s fine. We’re all done eating.”

Employee: *Sounding really strained* “Yes, but people will be using the table after you.”

At that, the woman gave the employee a glare, scooped up her kid, and stomped off, I guess toward the restroom. Meanwhile, her group at the table looked shocked, like they’d never considered the idea that other people would be using the table after they were done with it.

Calling It Quits Might Not Be A Mis-Steak

, , , | Right | April 8, 2021

I begin my six-am shift at a fast food place by a busy interstate.

Me: “Good morning!”

Customer: “A steak bagel. Just the sandwich.”

Me: “Okay! That will be $4.80.”

I cash the customer out and go to the “landing zone” to collect his food. I call out his order because he walked off without his receipt and number.

Me: “Steak egg cheese bagel?”

Customer: “You said steak, egg, and cheese?”

Me: “I did.”


Me: “You didn’t specify that when you ordered it, sir, but I’ll have it remade.”

I have them remake the whole sandwich. I hand him his plain bagel.

Me: “Your plain steak bagel, sir.”

Customer: “Did you put breakfast sauce on it?”

Me: *Pauses* “You didn’t specify, again.”


Our manager comes over to talk to this dude. He tells her he ordered a steak bagel with only sauce. I turn around.

Me: “No, sir, you did not tell me that!”

My manager puts her hand in my face:

Manager: “Shut up, I got it!”

She’s apologizing for my errors, which are none.

Customer: “She must be an idiot or a druggie or both, because she can’t get a real job. I want her name and yours, and how to contact your corporate office.”

She happily obliged. I had had it at that point. I walked over and I told them both to get f***ed — him for being a complete a** for no reason and her for not defending her staff when she always told us she had our back. I grabbed my stuff and left. I will never work fast food ever again.

She Must Be Thinking In Double-Dutch

, , , | Right | April 7, 2021

I’m eating at a fast food place in Belgium. A couple next to me is discussing something in English. When it is their turn, the guy orders in Dutch, the local language.

Girl: “Did you just now order in Dutch?”

Guy: “Yes.”

Girl: “You’re an idiot; they all understand English here.”

The guy shrugged it off and I tried to process what I’d overheard.

Fast Food But Instant Complaints

, , | Right | April 6, 2021

I’m working the drive-thru. Some ladies order a side item that takes a couple of minutes to cook fresh, and although we don’t have any that were already prepared, we do have some that are around sixty seconds away from coming up. It’s hardly a long wait, but I guess these women just can’t bear sitting in their air-conditioned car for a single minute, because they sit at my window, screaming and shouting obscenities at me the whole time.

The thing is, with that window closed, I can’t hear a single thing they are saying and effectively ignore them completely. I only find out about it because the next customer in line later tells me about their behavior.

Of course, this just makes them angrier, but at least they have already mostly worn themselves out by the time their food is ready.

When I hand them their order, they look at me with a combination of shock and anger, as though I’ve just deliberately farted in a preacher’s face or something.

Customer: “I can’t believe how long that took!”

The total time they waited was MAYBE a minute and a half, with a good fifteen seconds of that spent whining. I just don’t have the patience to explain the concept of cooking food to a couple of overgrown, tantrum-throwing toddlers.

Thoroughly ignored, they drove off with expressions of shock on their very red faces, and the next customer took their place. She apologizes profusely for their behavior, while also laughing hysterically at the unexpected entertainment she had witnessed. I just smiled and shrugged because it hadn’t bothered me one bit, but if it made her day a little brighter, well…
