Memoirs of a McDonalds Employee 2006-10-28 21:34:08
So...I have been working at McDonalds as a manager for a couple years now, and in that time I have seen stupidity reach new lows. Here I will post periodically little stories of stupid people that have come through the restaurant, or very well just annoying or funny things that happen on a regular basis.
You are welcome to come and comment on the stories, and you surely can ask a question or myth you have heard about McDonalds, and I will try to answer any and all questions, so long as they are not "McDonalds sucks!" posts. I work, there, I know it does, I don't need you to tell me that, it's still fun to work with some of the people there and if you come here just to flame, kindly GTFO. Anyways, on to our first story:
Well big duh you whinny baby
So this story is short and simple: One time I had a customer who was pissed because he had a problem with his salad. He was yelling and swearing left right and center and demanded to see a manager. The problem? "My crouttons are hard and stale"...
Well I really didn't know what to say. I try to explain to him that indeed, that is what crouttons are supposed to be: stale hard bread. He wouldn't listen. obviously all the other packets of crouttons we had were the same, so he just left pissed insisting he was going to write a letter of complaint to Head Office - he did, but got told the same thing.
How stubborn can somebody be to not accept he is wrong?
Can you hear me now? - Good
This is something that happens at the DriveThru all the time. Sometimes the headsets will work perfectly, you can hear a fly buzzing around outside. The problem lies in that when they work properly, you get quite a bit of an ear injury when somebody with a diesel engine starts off their car right in your fucking ear. Or a cop car goes by. Or an ambulance...it's amazing how loud thesews things will be in your ear...yet whe it's a customer talking...
Now, sometimes we can't hear you for a number of reasons: you have anoying and loud kids in your car, they won't shutup and are yelling different sandwiches in your ear, and you get mad at us for not being able to listen.
You will sometimes have a car that is polite enough not to have the radio on too loud, but will blast it after they are done paying, right next to the paying window, and then we can't hear you, or them, or anybody else for that matter.
You whisper when you talk, or you have somebody in the far back seat trying to order, but they talk like we were there with them in the car. We can't hear you.
One of my favorites? if we tell you we will be with you in just a minute, it means shut up and we will be with you in justa minute. A lot of people ignore you and just start ordering right away. When this happens I pray it's a huge ass order just so that when you are done I will tell you like nothing has ahppened "welcome to McDonalds, how can I help you?". If you are going to get mad at me for not listening to your order, when I clearly said I would help you in a moment, it means I will not pay attention because I am busy with either a) another customer or b) I', getting your fucking food because we are so short staffed I have to do the cash, the getting of food and hand it in all by myself. Have some patience!
More DT stuff
We've had a couple not only come through DT where the chick was sitting on the guys lap and they were fucking, they ordered and drove away still at it. Similarly, we have had girls giving blowjobs while going through DT.
There was a customer that got banned from the restaurant because he would buy a milkshake, just he could throw it in the presentr's face as soon as he got it. he did this for two weeks straight.
Another moron insisted for us to give him a dine in tray through DT and refused to move if we didn't give him what he wanted. We ended up calling the cops 'cause he backed up the line and didn't budge.
There will be more coming later, if you actually read through all that, congrats, it will get better, I promise :)
