I’m hungry eat enough to pizza, sushi, salad, drink boba tea, cold brew and iced coffee! Not that I could, tho!
I’m crashing. My energy is flatlined and I am so happy I don’t have any adult responsibilities!
We were so busy! So short staffed that a manager had to take window, run his own order and make his own drinks!
Meanwhile, we had to shut down skip the dishes delivery! Had no stock. No smoothies and McCafés. (Yippee!!!)
It was madness! At one point I was taking orders for window and drive thru at the same time!
“You wanted a large size big Mac meal?” I asked the customer. He nodded. Just then a customer pulled up to my speaker.
“Hi may take your order” I greeted the customer and waited for front counter customer to complete his transaction. He just stood there and stared at me.
I gestured to the Interac pad “there you are”
“Ok sir that’s two decafs” I went on my mic.
“So my meal is large size?” The counter customer asked.
I narrowed my eyes “yes” I gestured again to the pad.
“I’m sorry sir you said black”
“Is. My. Meal. Large. Sized?!”
I took off my headset, my expression thunderous “sir I clarified your order! I answered your question twice. I said yes! Are we having a problem here? Please pay and move on!”
He was so stunned. he was a classic case of a person dropped as a baby!
I was surprised how well the afternoon went, compared to yesterday. I suppose I was feeling a little better.
That was until the cash person had to go the bathroom. There was no one to take over for her. There was nothing more annoying than having to wait to use the bathroom! Especially if one had a shy bladder! I wasn’t about to ask a manager if she could go. It would just create drama! I sighed. That meant we would be just down another person.
I told her she could go.
“Becky? Hello? I have to go to the bathroom!”
“Yes you can go to the bathroom”
Silence. “Becky! I really have to go! Is someone going to take over for me?!”
I was becoming frustrated now. She asked three more times. “Oh my gulay?! You need to listen when people talk to you!” I shouted “go to the bathroom!”
“So I can go!”
I nearly threw my headset. I was swearing in Tagalog and French. The girls are looking at me. They were also frustrated because now they were doing the jobs of two more people!
“I said go to the bathroom!”
“Oh so I can go”
She was gone nearly half hour!
It was a crazy day! I just realized today was only Thursday!!!
One more day!
