ORDER SMARTER!


Stop trying to shake down my drug empire! – me

What? Since when? – Ethan

I’m trying to run a low key operation here! You keep busting my chops! – me

How much? – Ethan

You couldn’t afford my shit – me

Really? – Ethan

$100 a gram for starters. You can’t afford it on minimum wage. – me

Breaking Bad much? Nah, just being interrupted during orders

I was in a wonderful mood today until my first order. The customer had asked for a moment.

No problem, I carried on with other tasks. “Hello? Hello? Hello? Why aren’t you taking my order? Hello?”

Annoyed, I snapped “you are not waiting on me! I am waiting on you! Please order!”

“Oh”

Another customer further antagonized me when she ordered a meal then a sausage egg muffin and OJ. “I don’t want fries”

I thought she would like a hash brown instead. So I asked her. “No I said no fries!”

“Ma’am you asked for a meal!”

“Yes, but I don’t want fries!”

I face palmed myself. “Then no meal!”

I struggled to keep my annoyance under control by chatting with my drive thru team.

A customer ordered a number four. “I didn’t want the bacon cheddar angus! I wanted the mighty!” He whined.

Ok. After he finished ordering the mighty “I want a bacon cheddar,”

There went a cup! “Sir, you do know I had that burger punched in already! Next time just keep ordering!”

there was silence. “Oh” he managed “that’s all then!”

“fucking idiots don’t waste my time with your stupidity!” I grumbled once my lane was clear. I found my drive thru team staring at me in astonishment.

“Becky!”

“I don’t play around in drive thru. Order smarter not harder! I don’t put up with stupidity!”

  1. It sounds like it’s hard to be smart in the drive thru? On the rare occasions I go to a fast food place I go inside. I spend enough time sitting in traffic. I’m not going to sit in my car in line and then try to make myself understood through a speaker. That’s simply torture for me and the order taker.

    1. It wouldn’t be hard if customers would read the cvs as they ordered. Actually read the menu. Enunciated their words. Or stop ordering their meals one at a time. IE: “then another burger meal. Then another”
      But it’s a rare occasion that a customer will order correctly.
      I rarely go thru drive thru.
      I prefer to go inside and eat.
