Well, Wednesdays and I are arch nemesises again.
I really hate Wednesdays. Today was no exception!
- there was another LNG truck rally
- Premier Christy Clarke was in town
- Child Tax day
- 2 more fires plus they hadnt lifted the fire evacuations yet.
- and the Cult came in. (my parents church)
We were busy.
Not one person was at BK.
I was in a great mood until a customer accused me of being rude. I had asked her what her coffee was because she had said a triple triple double splenda. and she started rattling off about her damn bagel!!!
“I was asking about the coffee, what was in it!” I asked.
“You know what you are rude!” she snarked.
“I was not being rude,” I replied. “I was asking about your coffee because I wasnt sure about what you said.”
“oh I just didnt see my bagel on the screen.”
Who fucking cares! Answer my question!
That really put me in a grumpy mood. Customers have no idea how serious it is to accuse a polite order taker of being rude. They get in alot of trouble by their boss!
At that point I could have cared less if I was being polite or not.
I had greeted a customer when she pulled up to my speaker. There was silence. “Hello” i asked. Silence. Whatever. I was too busy to put up with that kind of nonsense. I tried one more time.
“Hello?” all of sudden some bitch was barking in my ear. “is anyone there?”
“Yes” I answered.
“Arent you going to take my order? Hello? Hello?”
“Yes I already asked for your order 3x!”
“Oh well I had my window up so I didnt hear you!” she replied.
Lunch was just as bad.
Customer: I want a 6 piece please.
Me: would you like a 8 piece for $2 instead of a 6 piece? A 6 piece is $6″
Me: you dont want to pay $2 instead of $6
me: 8 pieces for $2
Customer: I dont know.
Me: you dont know if you want to pay $2?
Customer: Ok I will have 8 pieces.
then the total genius that came to my window.
“Why does it say 6 pieces for 5.65”
me: because thats how much it costs.
customer: then why does the 4 piece say $1?
me: because its on sale.
Customer: I just dont understand that.
me: you dont understand what?
customer: why you wouldnt sell me the 4 piece
me: she asked you. You said no.
Customer: I did?
me: you can go now.
