    You Got Their Card

    , | Auburn, AL, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (This restaurant chain recently has come out with a taco that has a seasoning from a famous line of chips. I decide to try something since they have a habit of accommodating requests.)

    Me: “Hi! I’d like to get the [Taco in soft shell separated by cheese], but can I use the [New Taco] instead of the regular?”

    Cashier: “Sure! It’s just $0.30 more.”

    (I happily pay for the difference. When I pick up my food, and take off the wrapper, I nearly bite in, and then look at it.)

    Me: “I don’t… What is this?”

    Friend: “What is it?”

    Boyfriend: “Did they leave the cardboard stand on the taco!?”

    Me: “I, uh… I guess so. Let me see what I can do.”

    (I go up to the counter, after peeling away some of the soft taco and cheese. I show it to the cashier who promptly bursts out laughing.)

    Cashier: *to the back* “Who left the d*** cardboard on the shell in the [Item I ordered]!?” *to me* “I’m sorry about that, honey. We’ll get a new one right out!”

    (I got a new one a few minutes later along with complimentary dessert. Guess someone really wasn’t paying attention after all!)

    The Schedule Of Lies

    | MI, USA | Bad Behavior, Bosses & Owners, Liars/Scammers

    (An hour before my shift, my phone rings. It’s work and I assume they want me to come in early.)

    Manager: “Hey, where are you?”

    Me: “At home, why?”

    Manager: “Your shift started an hour ago and you’re never late.”

    Me: *looks at schedule, which this manager, who is in charge of making the schedule, printed off for me* “It says I’m not scheduled for another hour.”

    Manager: “That’s not what my schedule says. If you don’t get here soon I’ll write you up.” *hangs up*

    (Figuring I got the unofficial copy of the schedule, I head in. As soon as I walk in the door, this happens:)

    Manager: “So, you really were scheduled for later but someone didn’t show up, so I lied to get you here.”

    Me: “…What?”

    (The next manager on shift sent me home early and let me take home an extra meal to make up for it. I don’t work there anymore but last I heard the manager who lied to me still does the schedule and still pulls that stunt when they’re shorthanded.)

    A Look That Could Shatter Glass

    | Germany | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior, Employees

    (I’m ordering a burger combo. The restaurant currently has a promotion for free coke glasses with each combo running, but I’m not interested in the glasses.)

    Cashier: “And here are your glasses.”

    Me: “No, thanks, I don’t want them.”

    Cashier: “All right.” *starts putting the glasses back*

    Lady Behind Me In Line: “Can I have them instead?”

    Me: “Sure!”

    Cashier: *takes the glasses back before I can take them* “No, you can’t have them. They’re for the combo only. I need to put those into the computer.”

    Me: “…All right, give me the glasses, then.”

    Cashier: “No.”

    Random Person In The Next Line: “Here you go!” *hands his combo glasses to the lady behind me*

    (The cashier looked furious.)

    Animal Madness

    | London, England, UK | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Pets & Animals

    (I go into a royal fast food restaurant near my home. When I enter, everyone behind the counter is wearing weird hats.)

    Me: “Err, what’s with the hats?”

    Cashier: “Oh, they’re wallabies. Do you want a giraffe, penguin, Martin, or duck-billed platypus?”

    Me: “Is there, like, a special going on? Because this is just completely crazy.”

    Cashier: “No, the manager’s an animal fanatic.”

    Me: “Right, anything else weird I should know about this place?”

    Cashier: “The manager buried former employees in the backyard behind us. He’s a bricklayer as well as a manager. Anyway, what would you like to eat?”

    They Are Largely To Blame

    | St. Pete, FL, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

    Me: *ordering* “And lastly, I’d like the Dr. Pepper Vanilla Float.”

    Employee: “Okay, what size?”

    Me: “The smallest size you’ve got, please.”

    Me: *picking up at the window* “Wow! This is huge, and this is the small?”

    Employee: “It’s the large.”

    Me: “Oh, remember, I ordered the smallest size.”

    Employee: “It’s the only size we have.”

    Me: *puzzled* “Then why did you ask me what size?”

    Employee: “Because we have a regular and a large.”

    Me: “Oh, then I’d like to have the regular one, please, since out of regular and large, regular is the smallest.”

    Employee: *sighing and turning to a manager* “Can you help me with a refund? She ordered the wrong thing.”
