    Sandwiched Between A Manager And A Hard Place

    , | OH, USA | Bad Behavior, Bosses & Owners, Family & Kids, Health & Body

    (My brother frequents the store that I work at because he enjoys visiting me. Due to this, one manager has come to like him so much that she memorizes his order and has done her best to see to it that everyone else knows it as well. This happens when she is on vacation and another manager is on duty.)

    Mom: *drives into the drive-thru*

    Manager: “Welcome to [Store]. How may I help you?”

    Mom: “I would like [Sandwich] and um, a [Sandwich] the way [Brother] likes it.”

    Manager: “And what is that?”

    (At this point, I am scrambling to go and tell the manager what it is since I am to assist him with taking orders, however, he shoves me aside.)

    Manager: “Ma’am, you are the parent. You should know how to make [Brother]’s sandwich!”


    Manager: *rings this in* “Your total is [amount].”

    (When my mom pulls up to the window, my manager proceeds to chew her out because of her order. After she pulls away.)

    Manager: “Is that the only reason why your mom comes here only when you’re working, [My Name]? Pathetic!”

    Me: “[Manager], that is not the whole case—”

    Manager: “—and what is [Brother] now? Didn’t you say he is 18? He should learn to speak up!”

    Me: “That isn’t the problem!”

    Manager: “Then what is it?”

    Me: “[Brother] is autistic. He has problems speaking up! Especially to his parents! And my mom comes in to keep me company!”

    Manager: “He should still learn to speak up!”

    (The next day, I learned that my coworker who was on the grill reported this to the General Manager. She came to me and told me that my mom could come in and order just like that again, despite what that last manager said. That manager now refuses to serve my family when they come through the drive-thru.)

    Eating On The Fry

    , | Kalamazoo, MI, USA | Coworkers, Food & Drink

    (I work at a fast food chain. One night, I am on the register when Coworker #1 is sent on break and Coworker #2 has clocked out to go home. Coworker #2 orders some food to take home, and then heads into the bathroom to change, while Coworker #1 hangs around the counter. A customer then comes in.)

    Customer: *makes typical order, but also orders a large French fry*

    (I ring up their order, and then proceed to bag Coworker #2’s order and place it on the counter.)

    Customer: “Hey, are the fries fresh? I don’t want them to be too old.”

    (Coworker #1 takes this as a cue to open the bag with Coworker #2’s order, grab some fries out of it, and eat them.)

    Coworker #1: “These seem to be fine to me.”

    Me: *stares, shocked*

    (Needless to say I gave the customer fresh fries, and also changed out the fries for Coworker #2.)

    Breaking The (Five-Second) Rules

    , | MD, USA | Bad Behavior, Bosses & Owners, Food & Drink, Health & Body

    (I am working late shift at the pizza shop, washing dishes in the back when I hear some food fall out of the oven. The oven is a constant conveyer belt. The customer who the food is meant for walks in.)

    Me: “Hello, welcome to [Pizza Shop]. I’m sorry, sir, but we have to remake your item, because we accidentally let it drop. It will take about ten minutes.”

    Customer: “Okay, that’s fine, then.”

    (I go about taking the rest of the items out while I wait for my manager to remake the item. My manager walks in and proceeds to pick the food off the floor and try to put it in the box.)

    Me: “Hold on, you can’t do that! It’s been in the floor!”

    Manager: “So what? We do this all the time!”

    Me: “I don’t care; I’m not letting you give that to the customer!”


    (We got into an argument right in front of the customer, who pretended not to notice, which I won when my manager remade the item and I pointedly threw the old one away.)

    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.)
