    They Have A Drinking Problem

    | Lubbock, TX, USA | Bad Behavior, Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (We have just ordered two combo meals which come with drinks. We get to the second window and receive our meals, but only one drink. Mind that both meals had their fries, and thus had been marked as combos.)

    Husband: “Ma’am, were missing a drink.”

    Server: “All right, let me get that for you, sir.”

    (We wait two minutes.)

    Server: “You’re the ones with the [someone else’s order]?”

    Us: “No, ma’am, we’re waiting on a drink.”

    (She disappears for another two minutes.)

    Server: “All right, so you’re the [other order].”

    Husband: “…No, we’re still just waiting for a drink.”

    (By now, we’ve in the drive through line for at least 10 minutes.)

    Server: “All right, well, we didn’t put the drink on the order, so—”

    Husband: “…Well, here’s my card. Charge what you need to for the drink.”

    Server: *takes the card* “No one needs that attitude, sir.”

    (My husband and I look at each other puzzled, but we give up. We get a drink and his card back and head off.)

    Husband: *takes a sip of his drink once we’re at home* “…This is the wrong drink.”


    | Phoenix, AZ, USA | Bosses & Owners, Ignoring/Inattentive, New Hires, Top

    (I am invited to interview at a popular quick service joint. I am not made aware that it will be a group interview. My interview is scheduled well before the place’s actual opening time, so naturally the doors are locked, but I can see employees inside getting ready for the day.)

    Me: *knocking gently on the door* “Hello? I’m here to see [Interviewer].”

    (Not one of the employees even look up. Another person walks up next to me.)

    Interviewee #1: “You’re here for an interview, too?”

    Me: “Yeah. What time’s yours?”

    Interviewee #1: “Nine.”

    Me: “So’s mine. I guess we’re interviewing together.”

    (It’s five minutes to nine, so we make more attempts to get the employee’s attention. Not once do they ever acknowledge us in any way. By ten past, two more interviewees have shown up.)

    Interviewee #2: “What the h***? They better not count this as late!”

    (We all decide to stick around until 9:30, and just as we start to walk away, the doors fly open.)

    Interviewer: “Where have you all been?! We were supposed to have finished by now! Why are you all late?!”

    Interviewee #1: “We weren’t late! We were out here on time, but no matter how many times we knocked on the door or asked to be let in, those employees of yours wouldn’t even look at us!”

    Interviewer: “Well that’s not my fault. You all should have tried harder!”

    Me: *losing my temper* “How? Slamming ourselves against the door? Screaming our heads off? We all knocked and spoke loud enough to be heard. Why didn’t you come out to see us when it was time?”

    Interviewer: “It’s not my job to be here on time. It’s your job. And you all failed miserably at that! You’re all lucky we’re short staffed or I’d turn you all out!”

    Me: “You know what? I don’t want to work for you. Let someone else deal with your b**** a**. Oh, and I’ll make sure to be calling into corporate about how you deal with prospective employees.”

    (The rest all murmur in agreement, and we simultaneously head for our cars.)

    Interviewer: “Fine! Leave! You’ll be sorry when you find yourself in some dead end job and on the street! I hope you rot!”

    (I flipped her off without turning around and drove away from there as fast as I could.)

    Unwanted Reaction To The Joke

    | WA, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Health & Body

    (I’m at a popular burger chain with my boyfriend. Due to allergies, I can’t have mayo. I order some food, and when I order my burger…)

    Me: “And no mayo on the [burger], please.”

    Cook: *pops out of the kitchen* “Extra mayo, then!”

    (I know he’s joking, but I give him the most dead serious look.)

    Me: “I will vomit on every surface I can if you give me mayo.”

    Cook: “…No mayo it is.”

    Only Likes Seoul Food

    , | GA, USA | Employees, Food & Drink

    (I’m the customer in this story. I am at a mall food court on a slow weekday and go to the Chinese fast food place.)

    Me: “Is [one of the entrees] any good?”

    Asian Lady Behind Counter: “I’m sorry, I don’t know. I don’t like Chinese food.”

    Me: “…”

    Asian Lady Behind Counter: “I’m Korean.”

    De-Icing The Decaf

    | GA, USA | Bosses & Owners, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (My mother and I are in a drive-thru at a popular doughnut shop where the owner usually takes the orders himself.)

    Owner: “Hello, what can I get for you?”

    Mother: “One medium iced mocha latte, one decaf—”

    Owner: “Iced mocha latte?”

    (The usual response after this is ‘we don’t do that,’ even if mocha is one of their listed flavorings for iced coffee.)

    Mother: “Yes. A medium iced latte, mocha flavored, please.”

    Owner: “How do you want that?”

    (We exchange baffled looks.)

    Me: *to mother* “Iced… with milk and chocolate?”

    Owner: *over me* “You want sugar and whipped cream?”

    Mother: “Oh. Sugar, no whipped cream.”

    Owner: “Okay. What else?”

    Mother: “An iced decaf coffee with milk and [sugar substitute], and two [special doughnuts].”

    Owner: “Okay, iced coffee and two doughnuts. So that’s one small iced mocha and one medium iced coffee with milk and [sugar substitute]?”

    Mother: “They should both be mediums, and the iced coffee should be decaf.”

    Owner: “Oh, okay. One medium iced latte with mocha and one iced decaf with cream and [sugar substitute].”

    Mother: *giving up* “Right. And two [doughnuts].”

    Owner: *cheerfully* “And two [doughnuts]. Please drive to the window!”

    (Our coffees were both larges. We just hoped that my mother’s was actually decaf. But I did learn that if you say ‘iced latte, mocha’, then they understand much faster!)
