I was out late visiting my family and stopped on my way home at McDonalds to grab a couple double cheeseburgers for my hubby before heading home and an order of fries. I went inside because the last time I got fries they were stone cold and nasty. Mind you it's about 3 am in a store that has been 24 hours for a very short time so they've still got quite a few kinks to work out. I had to make my order with three girl using receipt paper and figuring out the total with tax the old fashioned way. Not that much of an issue. I got a drink and stood to the side because a fairly large group came in behind me. This one guy started right in on berating the staff and managers. The girl apologized for the inconvenience and explained that the drawers were being counted (poor planning on managements part IMO, but whatever). This guy kept on and on because he wanted an ice cream machine too and couldn't have in because the machine was down (cleaning mode). The girl finished his order and went back to the back to get the tax info. It's at about five minutes listening to this ass that I started getting really annoyed. I'm standing at the counter sipping on my drink (the chocolate chip frappes are good, but the chocolate chips get in the way) when his buddy asks rudely if I worked there. I looked at him looked down at my clothes and said "seriously? Are you stupid? I am wearing a hot pink hoodie, jeans and shoes that's would fall on my as walking on that floor in 2.5 seconds. What in your right mind makes you think for half a second that I work here?" His mouth opened and closed like a fish which was funny. Head douche started running his mouth at me which didn't end well for him. I unleashed every single Bitch thing I ever wanted to say to an asshole customer that I ever wanted to when I worked at McDonalds 7 years ago as a teenager. Told him first of all you should never piss off someone that has anything to do with your food because food tampering is only illegal if you get caught. Second off these people are working their asses off to give you the food that your lazy ass doesn't want to cook at three am. Third the ice cream machine goes into a cleaning mode every single night at around midnight so that people don't get sick off of ice cream, it has always been that way. Finished by telling him that being a Dick probably won't get him far in life so he might want to think about readjusting his attitude because one of these days he will cross a person that doesn't give a flying fuck about what they say or do to him, but if he has a complaint to take it up with corporate. About that time the manager set my food on the counter and smiled at me. The girls that were with him told him that I was right.
I am sick and tired of people that think it's okay to treat people in the food service (any service for that matter) like the person trending to their wants and needs like they are dog shit on the bottom of their shoe. They are people.
Anon because of this sours I don't want hate mail in my inbox.
