An Injustice Caused By The Police

, , , , | Right | February 12, 2019

(I work as a server at a fast food restaurant. We have a multi-lane drive-thru, and servers run out to the cars to serve them.)

Me: “Welcome to [Restaurant]. How may I help you?”

Customer: “Finally! I’ve been waiting fifteen minutes for service!”

(I know for a fact that he hasn’t been waiting nearly that long, but I don’t say anything.)

Me: “My apologies, sir. What can I get for you?”

Customer: “I want [largest family meal on our menu].”

Me: “Will that be all, sir?”

Customer: “Yes, and I want the police discount.”

(The police discount is 50% off a meal. Company policy doesn’t allow us to give it on family meals, only individual meals.)

Me: “Sir, I can’t give you the police discount on a family meal, only an individual meal.”

Customer: “But I’m a police officer.”

(The guy is in a regular car and isn’t in uniform. Whether or not he is a cop, I don’t bother asking.)

Me: “Even if that’s the case, I can’t put it on a family meal.”

Customer: “Let me speak to your manager.”

(I go inside and get one of my assistant managers, since the general manager isn’t here.)

Manager: “What seems to be the problem, sir?”

Customer: *relays his version of the story*

Manager: “Sir, we can’t give you the discount on that meal.”

(After a bit of back-and-forth between them, the dude drives off. The next day the guy comes back, conveniently while someone from corporate is at the store. I am outside when this happens, but this is how I think it went down from what I am told.)

Customer: *to the manager he talked to last time* “I want my food, and if you don’t give it to me, I will post a 45-minute video on every social media site about my horrible experience.”

(My manager gets ready to call his bluff when the corporate guy walks up.)

Corporate: “What’s the problem?”

Customer: *tells the story from the previous day and his bulls*** ultimatum*

Corporate: *to manager* “Just give him the food for free.”

Manager: *reluctantly* “Yes, sir.” *proceeds to ask the customer what he wants*

(I am a customer at a restaurant in Venice, Italy. I hear this exchange between two other customers, a pair of British tourists.)
Tourist #1: This is just terrible. The lack of English food in this city is disturbing.
Tourist #2: Such savages. Do they really expect civilized people to eat Italian food?
(They were met with dirty looks from just about every other English speaker in the restaurant)

(I work at a meat place and a person comes in)

Customer: Hi, do you have a vegan meal?

Me: I’m sorry. This is a meat place. We don’t have a vegan meal.

Customer: Well then how do you serve vegetarians???

Me: Probably go to the salad place next door.

Customer: *turns to everybody* You all act like pigs! You’ve got sauce and meat on your faces! Carnivores!!!

Me: At least we don’t behave like one.

Customer: Excuse me?

Me: Sir, you’re behaving like a carnivore.

Customer: I want to see the manager!

Me: You’re looking at him.

Customer: You’re employee refuses to give me a vegan meal!

Me: …..

(At that point, I asked him to leave, but still calling the place a carnivore.

Unable To Change Someone That Stupid

(I work in a store that is next to a fast food restaurant. One day I go to the fast food place for lunch with a coworker who really hates stupidity. My coworker places his order, and it comes to $10.35. He gives the cashier a $20 bill and ¢35 in coin. The cashier looks at him in total confusion.)

Cashier: “Why did you give me the ¢35?”

Coworker: “So you don’t have to give me any change, just the bill.”

Cashier: “You don’t want your change?”

Coworker: “You just need to give me a $10 bill now, instead of giving me a lot of coins.”

Cashier: “So, you don’t want your change?”

(This goes on for another minute.)

Coworker: *getting very frustrated* “Just type exactly what I gave you into your till.”

(She does, and the till tells her to give back $10. She gives him his change, and he gets his food and leaves, very angry. After he is gone, I hear this while I’m waiting for my food.)

Cashier: “What a moron, says he doesn’t want his change, leaving me to think I’m getting a good tip. Then leaves nothing.”

(I then saw the cashier’s coworkers shake their heads. I got my food, went back to work, and told my coworker what happened after he left. He made a complaint later on and got three free meals, and we never saw that cashier again.)

Don’t Give Starbucks Any Ideas

(After a high school camping trip, we stop at a diner to eat.)

Father: “I think I’m going to have a big cup of java.”

Friend: *excitedly* “Really? You’re really going to have java? Wow!”

Me: “You realize ‘java’ is just coffee, right?”

Friend: “Oh.”

Me: “What did you think it was?”

Friend: “One of those big fancy drinks with all the fruit and umbrellas.”
