McDonalds hires morons

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Last time my dh went to McDonalds, they screwed up his order. I called them and they said they would replace the 20 piece nuggets they didn't give us next time we came in.

Well I went today and ordered 2 20 piece nuggets at the drive thru. I got to the Window and explained about the free 20 piece. The mgr verified and said ok. They were going to charge me for 2 20 piece nuggets and give me a 3rd for free. I only wanted 2 20 pieces and had to explain it over and over to the kid at the window.

Finally he gets it and I pay for 1 of the 20 pieces. I go to the 2nd window and the girl hands me a big bag and says here's your 3 twenty piece nuggets. I again tried to explain it was only supposed to be 2 but they just didn't get it.

They finally said just take the 3 twenty pieces, so I did. Their stupidity got me extra nuggets.

One the food is prepared and you touched it they cannot resell/re-serve it so that's probably why they didn't take it back.

Our mcdonalds sucks. They always mess up our order and they force us to "park" while we wait for the food. We're on a boycott right now.

Man, I experienced some crazy shit while working there. Customers can be really assholes. Really, just because I work behind the counter doesn't mean I want to take your shitty abuse.

Oh and just know, if you're a dick your food may well be picked up off the floor a couple of times before you get it. Just saying...

Lol, this! 

While yes, there are some incredibly stupid employees, I would say that customers are the cause of incorrect or problematic orders moreso than the employees. 

Quoting Danesmommy1: I worked at McDonald's in my teens. Customers are morons too.

I hadn't touched it. I stopped reaching for the bag when she said 3 twenty piece.

You get what you pay for. McDonalds doesn't pay enough for anyone with half a brain to work there.

Most of my issues were customers with issues...... 
I always loathed the ones who cut me off when i repeated their order to them (I worked at a rest area so i had to hear people over idling diesel trucks) then come up and complain if something was wrong.
