Two Too Early

| Westlock, AB, Canada | At The Checkout, Employees, Food & Drink, Time

(I pop in for lunch at a well-known fast food chain. This fast food chain switches from their breakfast menu to their lunch menu at 11 am. I check my watch to see it’s 10:58. I decide to try for lunch anyway.)

Me: “Hi! Is it too early to order a cheeseburger?”

Clerk: “We don’t start serving lunch until 11.”

Me: “But it’s literally two minutes until 11.”

Clerk: “I said we don’t start serving lunch until 11!”

Me: “Okay. In that case, I’ll be back in two minutes!”

(I go use the washroom. When i come back out, my watch says 11 am, and the menus have been switched over to the lunch menu. I go back to the same clerk.)

Me: “Hi! I’d like to order a cheeseburger.”

(I get my cheeseburger… and a death glare!)

(My dad and I are out and decide to get lunch at Wendy’s rather soon after the Baconator comes out.)

Drive-Thru: “Welcome to Wendy’s. Can I take your order?”

Dad: “Can I get a cheeseburger meal with a Diet Coke and a Baconator meal with a Sprite?”

Drive-Thru: “Do you want bacon on that?”

Reorder The Order In Which You Order

| Hillsboro, OR, USA | Employees, Food & Drink

(I regularly stop by a popular fast food restaurant on my way to work and I always order the same thing. This time the employee tries to remember my order before I give it.)

Employee: “Number three?”

Me: “Five.”

Employee: “Medium?”

Me: “Large.”

Employee: “Barbecue sauce?”

Me: “Sweet and sour.”

Employee: “For here?”

Me: “To go.”

Employee: *laughs*

Me: *also laughing* “By the end there I was starting to think you were doing it on purpose!”

Be Good To Your Daughters

| MO, USA | Bad Behavior, Bosses & Owners, Family & Kids

New Manager: *shouting* “Don’t f****** tell me what to do, you f****** piece of s***! I’m the f****** manager, not you!” *stomps out the back door*

Me: “[Owner’s Daughter], does he know who you are?”

Owner’s Daughter: *texting mom* “I don’t think so, but he’s about to.”

(We never saw that manager again.)

A Love/Hate Relationship With Your Boss

| Westfield, WI, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Overtime

(It’s the beginning of the slow time of year and as a result, hours are being cut and people are being sent home early. On this particular day, I’m exhausted, have a long day ahead, and am practically begging to be cut.)

Me: “Hey, so… what are the chances of me going home early?”

Manager: “You’re are NOT going anywhere! I’ll send [Coworker who finishes the same time as me but started later] home early before I send you home early.”

Me: “So, either you love me and want to keep me here, or you hate me and want me to suffer.”

Manager: “You will never know…”
