#7 of 33 Things Your Fast Food Worker Won’t Tell You

                Avoid asking for “extra” of something, like cheese or sauce.

Avoid asking for “extra” of something, like cheese or sauce.As soon as you say “extra,” we have to enter it at the register and charge you for it. Instead, just tell us you want us to “put a good amount on there” or “not to be skimpy with it,” and we’ll load you up.

Alabama they will charge you extra for ketchup if they put it on in the back. If you ask for dipping sauces they charge .25 each if you do not have chicken nuggets or strips. They charge .75 for one extra slice of tomato.

Yea if you bought strips or nuggets they give you one sauce pack for a 10 piece . I was like really? I asked the manager if he could eat 10 nuggets with one sauce pack. Not to mention i share mine with my 2 boys. I don't mind paying for extra but .25 is ridiculous!
