Thems The Cakes

, | Working | June 12, 2012

(I am ordering fried chicken in the drive thru of a very popular franchise that specializes in fried chicken. I order the 12 piece meal which is $28.99 and comes with three sides and a free cake, and drive up to the window.)

Employee: “Your total $36.xx.”

Me: “Why? The menu says $28.99.”

Employee: “There’s tax on it.”

Me: “The tax is not that much.”

Employee: “The tax is $2.14.”

Me: “Yes, but that doesn’t add up to $36.”

Employee: “Yes it does, ma’am!”

Me: “No, it actually doesn’t.”

Employee: “HOLD ON!”

(A few moments later, the manager comes to the window.)

Manager: “There’s tax, ma’am.”

Me: “I’m aware of that, but the total doesn’t add up.”

Manager: “The tax is $2.14…”

Me: “Right…”

Manager: “And the meal is $28.99…”

Me: “Uh huh…”

Manager: “So your total is $36.xx.”

Me: *waits*

(I notice the light bulb go on in the manager’s face, and he presses some buttons before turning to the employee.)

Manager: *to employee* “You put in the wrong d*** cake!”
