Mozzarella-ella-ella-ella

| KS, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Food & Drink, Ignoring & Inattentive

(I was visiting my mom for the weekend and decided to go to a fast food place to get a late lunch. It is a well known fast food place you can either drive through or park and order from your car.)

Me: *tells my mom what I want because she’s driving*

Mom: *presses the button*

Employee #1: “Welcome to [Fast Food Place]. What can I get you?”

Mom: “Hi, I’d like a three-piece #10 meal with tater tots, ranch, and a vanilla Dr. Pepper. Can I also get a small order of mozzarella sticks?”

Employee #1: “Is that the three-piece or five-piece #10?”

Mom: “The three-piece with tater tots, ranch, and a vanilla Dr. Pepper. Also a small order of mozzarella sticks.”

Employee #1: “Would you like fries or tater tots with that?”

Mom: “Tater tots, ranch, and a vanilla Dr. Pepper. Also a small order of mozzarella sticks.”

Employee #1: “Sauce?”

Mom: “Ranch and a small vanilla Dr. Pepper. Also a small order of mozzarella sticks.”

Employee #1: “What would you like to drink?”

Mom: “A vanilla Dr. Pepper. Also a small side of mozzarella sticks.”

Employee #1: “So I’ve got the #10 three piece combo meal with tater tots, ranch, and a vanilla Dr. Pepper. Anything else?”

Mom: “A small order of mozzarella sticks, please. Nothing else.”

Employee #1: “Okay, your order is $[total].”

Employee #2: *comes out after a bit with our food* “Okay, I got a three-piece combo meal with tots, a small order of mozzarella sticks; I threw in two-or-three ranch cups for you, a vanilla Dr. Pepper, and a watermelon Pepsi.”

Me: *face-palm*

Plainly Didn’t Understand

| USA | Coworkers, Food & Drink, Ignoring & Inattentive

(I am working drive-thru sandwiches at a popular fast food place. We are in the middle of a big rush and four of the largest premium sandwiches have been special ordered plain. We have just enough cooked meat to make them. I and a coworker from front start making them. We are rapidly stacking meat and cheese she reaches over and grabs a bottle of mustard and puts it on the last meat patty before I can stop her.)

Me: “Plain! Plain! They’re plain! No anything.”

Coworker: *stops and look down in horror* “Sorry.”

(She quickly scooped the top patty off before the cheese melted to it and returned it to the grill. She then ran back upfront to work her own line. I wrapped everything I could, then had to hold the unfinished sandwiches under the warmer for two minutes till the last patty was done, all while my order line was stacking up.)

You’ve Been Had

, | Grand Jct., CO, USA | Coworkers, Rude & Risque

(I’m running the grill for both the inside and drive-thru after a very busy lunch rush. The cashier at the drive-thru — a girl with a particular reputation — is exhausted after three hours without a break. We finally get a lull in drive-thru customers.)

Cashier: “Whew! I have had it!”

Me: “Oh? How many times?”

(Everyone on the line was in stunned silence, since I’m normally very polite. After about five seconds, everyone burst out laughing.)
