This Conversation Does Not Reach An Organic Conclusion

, , , , | Right | February 1, 2023

I’m working through my line at the fast food place where I work.

Me: “Hi, welcome to [Fast Food Place]. What would you like to order?”

I get one of those annoying customers who doesn’t even look at the menu until they’re being served, slowing down service while they um and ahh.

Me: “Would you like to try our new chicken sandwich? It’s quite popular right now.”

Customer: “What’s in it?”

I run through the ingredients.

Customer: “Is it locally sourced chicken?”

Me: “The chicken is from within the state.”

Customer: “Is it organic?”

Me: “I know that they’re free-range.”

Customer: “Are they frozen?”

Me: “They are frozen on their journey to our stores, yes.”

The customer considers this for a moment and then goes back to umming and ahhing over the menu.

Me: “Our classic burgers are also always a good choice.”

Customer: “Is it locally sourced beef?”

Me: *Shoulders sagging* “The beef comes from Texas.”

Customer: “Is it organic?”

Me: “I don’t know, sir.”

Customer: “And—”

Me: “Yes, they’re frozen, sir.”

Customer: “Hmm…”

He goes back to just staring at the menu. The customers behind him are getting visibly annoyed.

Me: “We also have a fish burger, sir.”

Customer: “Is it—”

Me: “It’s not locally sourced, not organic, and yes, it is frozen.”

Customer: “Hmm…”

Me: “Sir, would you let me serve the next customer while you decide?”

Customer: *Ignoring me* “So… I am a vegetarian. What would you recommend?”

Next Customer: “Are you f****** serious?!” *Joins another line*
