Toppings Topped It Off For Him

, , , , | Right | March 4, 2019

(I work at a burger joint, which offers fries, burgers, sandwiches, and hot dogs. We also have to be told what toppings you want on your burger. My jobs there range from cashiering, lobby work, back of house, french fries, and making milkshakes. Cashiering and milkshakes together is most common as whoever is on the register usually makes the shakes when there are no more orders. It is at the end of a rush. A lot of shake orders have piled up, and my coworkers are busy with their tasks. I wash my hands, put on gloves, and am just about to start on milkshakes when a customer walks in, seemingly in a hurry. I’m annoyed that I have to take another order and make the shakes wait even longer, but I take off my gloves and go to the register.)

Me: “Hello! Welcome to [Restaurant]. How can I help you?”

Customer: “Yeah I want a cheeseburger and fries.”

Me: *types in orders* “What would you like on your burger?”

Customer: *looks at me confused, an eyebrow raised* “What?”

Me: “What toppings would you like us to put on your burger?”

Customer: *looks at list of toppings on counter for a second, before looking up at me and throwing his hands up in the air* “Too complicated!”

(As he stepped out I stood there in surprise. I get being in a hurry but is it really too hard to spend a few seconds telling me what you want on a burger? And of course that made me waste more time I could have spent making the multiple milkshake orders.)
