I was ever so sweet today. I was anticipating the moment when I could crush people’s dreams this afternoon.
I wonder if they found it more infuriating that I was being so sweet denying their requests, instead of being a basic bitch?
I began my onslaught at 11 when we started the $.67 hamburger sale. The deal was a customer could have up to 3. We allowed up to 10. No special grill orders. No multi-orders.
We sold 80 within 20 minutes in the drive thru alone, on the counter? I have no idea. Every order had 10 hamburgers. We went down hill. So now customers were now allowed 5.
So it began.
A customer asked for a multi-order. I asked if any of them were having the special. They both said yes. So both orders were having the special. Yep. 10 hamburgers. “No I am sorry only 5 hamburgers per person. I am afraid we can’t do multis with the special orders.” that blew their minds.
“Are you kidding me? so my friend can’t have her 5 hamburgers?” she asked.
I had to explain 3x that they were only allowed 5 burgers. They would have to come in. But then again 5 burgers PER customer. “5 burgers!”
She took the deal regardless.
A customer asked “I would like a cheeseburger no onions no pickles sub mac sauce add lettuce.”
“I am sorry no special orders on the specials today,” I replied.
“Really?” no I am making that shit up. “So I can’t have mac sauce?”
A customer asked if we still had the special. it just started today, it would end today. So yeah, of course, we still had it.
“I would like 25 cheeseburgers.”
“No, I am sorry only 5”
What took the cake for me? A customer asked what hamburger was on special today.
“Hamburger and cheeseburger,” I replied.
“I asked you what kind of burger!” he snapped.
“hamburger and a cheeseburger!” I answered. I was pretty clear.
“Oh my god! Fine! I will have a big mac and a quarter cheese!”
“Ok but those aren’t on sale are you sure you still want them?” I asked.
“Look I asked you what was on sale!” he snapped.
I looked up the tv monitor to see who this joker was. “And I told you,” I replied coldly, “hamburgers and cheeseburgers!”
“Oh fine then! a hamburger and cheeseburger!”
A woman was irritated when she learned she couldn’t have 50 hamburgers. “No only 5,” I said.
“5?” she repeated in disbelief. “well maybe you should have that in the fine print then!”
I was startled. I almost started to laugh. Since when does any customer read the fine print!!! “The limit was up to 3 but now we upped it to 5” I sighed.
It was a fun day. We sold over 1300 hamburgers/cheeseburgers in an hour and half.
