    Having Beef With A Lack Of Chicken

    , | Mexico City, Mexico | Employees, Food & Drink

    (My parents and I have an order to go, receive it, and leave. Upon detecting something funny, we go back to complain.)

    Employee: “Was there something wrong with your order?”

    Dad: “Look at it, and you tell me.”

    Employee: *upon re-opening the wrapped burger clearly labeled ‘chicken teriyaki’’* “…There is no meat.”

    An Extra-Large ‘Helping’

    , | TX, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Workers, Food & Drink

    (I’m in the drive-thru for a Mexican food fast food place and just pulled up to the speaker box, which has a screen below that displays the order.)

    Employee: “Welcome to [Fast Food]! My name is [Employee]. Can I take your order?”

    (I give me order and notice he put the drink in wrong, putting in an ‘XL’ drink when I just wanted a ‘L.’)

    Employee: “Does everything look right on the screen?”

    Me: “Actually no, I wanted a large not an extra large.”

    Employee: “Oh, sorry. Let me fix that for you.”

    (It changes to the large drink I wanted on the screen.)

    Employee: “Does it look correct now?”

    Me: “Yes, it does.” *jokingly* “Though, if you want to you can give me an XL for the price of a large.”

    Employee: *chuckling* “That’ll be [Price]. Please pull up to the second window.”

    (I wait a little bit in line, but when I make it to the second window and hand him my card, I get handed an XL drink.)

    Employee: *smiling* “I went ahead and got you that extra large for the price of a large.”

    Me: “You didn’t have to have to do that.”

    Employee: “No, you help me out quite a bit at [Place where I work]. It’s the least I can do.”

    Me: “Okay…”

    (It’s so nice when employees are willing to help out each other in the field of customer service… Now if only the customers helped us out in return.)

    We Have A Sale Of Excess Gas

    | Chicago, IL, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Health & Body

    (I am visiting my sister at her department store. Like many other big department stores they do the occasional sale announcements to encourage people to buy up their excess inventory. Today my sister is doing it along with one of the other managers.)

    Sister: *over the intercom* “Attention shoppers, we have a new sale—” *only instead of the word ‘sale’ a large belch comes out*

    (There is a pause while she looks like a deer caught in the headlights and slowly puts the phone back down.)

    Other Manager: “Could I get a recording of that? I kinda want that as my ring tone.”

    My Religious Knowledge Is A Bit Crusty

    | Frankfurt, Germany | Coworkers, Food & Drink, Religion

    (We are discussing a large project in a workshop and just found out that a supplier has messed up and is not quite delivering the competency that we were looking for.)

    Coworker: “And they did not even do [task]! JESUS CHRIST!”

    Intern: “What does Jesus have to do with that?”

    Coworker: “Don’t you know Jesus?”

    Intern: “No.”

    Coworker: *without missing a beat* “Jesus, the guy who owns the bakery down the street. Long hair. Beard. A really cool guy.”

    Me: “He sells great buns, too!”

    Intern: *without missing a beat* “Then, he should be called Jesus CRUST!”

    (We all cracked up after that. Got rid of a good deal of tension, too!)

    The Cookie Crumbled Nicely Today

    | USA | Awesome Workers, Bosses & Owners, Food & Drink

    (I’m having an awful day, and the first half of my shift only makes my mood worse. By break, I’m about ready to cry. My manager rings me out for food, and I realized I’ve forgotten to add something to the order.)

    Me: “Uh… [Manager]… can you ring me out for a cookie?”

    Manager: “For you?”

    Me: “Yeah…”

    Manager: “Just grab one. Or two. You’ve been looking upset all day; you probably need something to cheer up with.”

    (I smiled for the first time all day and was a lot better for the second half of my shift.)
