    Working The Twilight Shift

    , | OH, USA | Coworkers, Geeks Rule

    (Normally, I work the evening shift at the restaurant, but today I am working an earlier shift.)

    Coworker: “[My Name], what are you doing here this early?”

    Me: “I was scheduled to work from noon.”

    Coworker: “Can vampires get up that early?”

    Me: “Hey! I do not sparkle!”

    Their Service Skills Don’t Cut (Out) The Mustard

    , | Denver, CO, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (It’s been a long day, and I just want some quick dinner so I pull into the drive-thru.)

    Me: “Can I get a pretzel burger with no mustard, please?”

    Worker: “That doesn’t come with mustard. It comes with lettuce, tomato, onion and honey mustard.”

    Me: *facepalm* “No honey mustard then, please.”

    (Sure enough, when I get home and take a bite out of my burger, it still has honey mustard on it.)

    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.)

    Needs Half A Voice Of Reason

    , | Cleveland, OH, USA | Bad Behavior, Bosses & Owners, Health & Body

    (I have lost most of my voice and go to see the doctor to make sure that I am not contagious and can safely go to work. The doctor clears me, but tells me that I should probably get some rest instead. Knowing we’ll be busy, I go to work and spend 11 hours helping customers, cleaning, and doing my regular job duties. Because it’s the holidays, we are especially busy, so I skip my lunch and dinner breaks. At the end of the night, my regular manager compliments me on my performance and gives me meal vouchers for skipping my breaks and helping out. Right after this, I get called into the general manager’s office for a chat. Note that my already hoarse voice is now just the barest whisper since I’ve been talking to customers all day and evening.)

    Me: *whispering as loudly as possible* “[General Manager], you wanted to see me? Is something wrong?”

    General Manager: “No, everything’s great. I just wanted to talk to you about your performance today.”

    Me: *thinking he’s going to compliment me* “Oh, I didn’t mind skipping my breaks or anything. We were really busy!”

    General Manager: “No, it’s not that. I’m just really disappointed in you.”

    Me: “What? Why?”

    General Manager: “How dare you come in here with half a voice. That’s not the image we want to project about [Company]!”

    Me: “But I was cleared by the doctor. I’m not contagious. Next time should I take the day off instead?”

    General Manager: “Don’t worry about it. You’re fired. Take your things and leave immediately. And you owe us $5 for your work shirt.”

    (This was only the second week the restaurant had been open, and the general manager had fired at least a dozen people for similar things so far. The website says that the company treats its employees like beloved family!)
