Do they train all fast food workers to hand you your change and then while you are trying to put your money away shove your drinks at you? I have learned to just put my money away and then turn around and get my drinks. Just about every time they stand there arms sticking out and when they see I am not pay attention to them they they shut the window and return later with my entire order. I just do not understand why they seem to be driven to hand me my drinks when they can plainly see my hands are full :spock:

I suppose they're trained to complete the transaction as quickly as possible.

I worked at an Arby's once, as a kid. Lasted one shift. I never even went back to collect that night's pay.

at a drive thru?

I give them their cash money and either wait for them to look before I give them their sodas or just stick my arm out until they are ready to take it.

Usually it seems they give me the drinks when I give them the money, and then they give me the change afterwards.

Yes at the drive thru, it is no big deal and maybe it is a local thing. It is just something that gets on my nerves a bit. I am never rude because I know they are kids and are making shit for wages.......that and I dont want them to spit on my food :D

What was so terrible about it?Other than the pitiful pay, constant disrespect, and nasty working conditions... nothing.

It was a part time job, I was 20 and had a full time job that paid about three times as much. (And the working conditions were light years better.)

I worked one shift, and said, "**** this."

As a side note, I did get another part time job working in retail. It was at "Venture", a Walmart-Target type franchise that went out of business years ago. It was much more enjoyable.

I mean the pay still sucked, but it was clean, and my coworkers were fun. Met one of my ex gf's there. Good times.

Then I noticed they had given me a Jalapeno CHICKEN sandwich instead of the Jalapeno BURGER I had ordered. I said, "you gave me jalapeno chicken but I ordered the burger"
They were like, "right, jalapeno chicken"
I said, "but I ordered the burger, but it's okay, I'll just take this chicken."
THey said, "Nah, we'll give you a burger too, wait a sec"
Bt I was like, "No, I don;t want to waste it, and besides the chicken is better for me...I think"

"really? No problem ,we'll get a burger hold on"
And I had to just drive away to keep them from giving me a burger too.

That's okay though, pay us now or pay us more later. The longer you wait the more work we'll have to do.

Have you ever ordered a Big Mac (I think that's the one) at a drive thru? Instead of being wrapped in paper, it comes in a styrofoam container box thing with a lid and when you pop open the lid, there's your sandwich lying in a bed of little lettuce shavings and you glance down quickly because you're driving and try to grab your sandwich out of the container but the sandwich kind of flops open and spills out about a hundred and fifty little lettuce shavings but this time they're on your shirt and your lap and you can't decide whether to use your left hand to flip the turn signal or start swatting away those little lettuce shavings and now the container is partially resting against the steering wheel and you've got your right hand on a sonofabitchin' renegade friggin' sandwich and one hand on the friggin' steering wheel and little goddam lettuce shavings all over the goddam place and you wind up steering with your friggin' chin for a mile or so while you wrestle like a fat lady trying on a leotard with a friggin' sandwich and a friggin' turn signal and thousands of goddam lettuce shavings that are multiplying like friggin rabbits while you try and grab them and throw the little bastards back in the container but some of the sonsabitches get friggin' caught up in the friggin' air conditioning vent breeze and friggin' start flying like little green friggin' helicopters into the back seat and you wind up saying f*ck it and throwing the container into the friggin' back seat too and finding a friggin' place to friggin' pull over so you can get out of the friggin' car and shake like a friggin' dog until all the little goddam lettuce shavings are pretty much gone from your shirt but you realize now that some of the little friggin' bastards had been dipped in special sauce and now you smell like a friggin' salad bar and look like you've just been sprayed with thousand island dressing?

I was unlucky enough to have to work at a fast food restaurant for two years during college. It was a Lion's Choice, which is kind of like an Arby's. I worked my way up to assistant manager, mostly because everyone else quit. That was an awful job.

It wasn't working with food that was the problem, though. It was the customers. When you're in a low-level service position, people think they can talk down to you. You get a lot of people who take their frustrations out on you because they know you can't do anything about it. I never quit, though. They ended up closing the store because it was losing money.

The only job I've ever quit was at a company that did telefundraising for "Friends of John Kerry" and other liberal groups. I lasted about 40 minutes before I told my supervisor I couldn't do this anymore and walked out.

They probably focus more time on making sure they use the credit/debit card machine correctly. Most people who use money are older and if they are eating fast food are probably going to die soon. Mine as well take care of the customers that are going to last longer.

worked at a dairy queen for a couple years back in high school. mostly cooked and kept soda and ice cream freezers filled up and running.

the pay was shitty, but in winter time it was never too busy. we'd take turns going back to the walk in fridge and huffing the gas out of the whipped cream cans. every week, the owner would bitch at the delivery guy about how the whipped cream was alway runny.

I worked at Hardee's when I was 16/17. I used to give my friends all kinds of extra food when they came through the drive-thru. And my friends and I, when closing the store, would take all the leftover food and trade for the leftover pizza from the Pizza Hut down the street. Fun times. Well, not really...but it seemed fun at the time.

I was gonna chastize you for being an idiot but I was an idiot at that age as well. One of our friends worked at McDonalds and drove a $50 beater. This was one of those cars where if you saw it rolling down the road your mouth dropped open in awe and wonder. One particular New Years Eve he got off his shift at the McD's & left the car there. My buddies and I were carousing looking for trouble when we saw his car parked in the dimly lit parking lot. Heh.

After we were through with his car it would have taken $15k to make it roadworthy again. I felt badly - still do but it probably didn't have but about 30 more miles left anyway. We didn't take his gas or anything. A full tank would have been worth more than the entire car.

Some friends we were, huh?

Perhaps I should rephrase. They're not cutting out their quantities of beer, they're just drinking beer at home or at a bud's party.

I won't pay ridiculous prices for beer. I sat down at BW3 a couple months ago and ordered a tall Bass. It was almost $7. Fortunately for me it was flat and I sent it back and drank a beer at home. Seven dollars is an entire six-pack. I'll drink Blvd products down at the local watering hole for $2 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There's no way I'll pay Arrowhead prices for beer - ever.

I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but I went to Taco Bell for lunch today and couldn't convince the counter girl of the definitions of left and right.

You get your food when they call out your order numbers, and they put the order numbers in a hard to find spot on the left side of their receipts. They just changed over from a system where the order number was obvious and in big letters, but that's a whole different story.

So anyway, people are having trouble finding their numbers as they're waiting, and the counter girl says, "The order number is on the right side of your ticket." She looked at me, who happened to be standing nearby, and said, "It's on the right side, right?"

I looked at my ticket. "Actually, it's on the left side."

"Are you sure?"

I showed her my ticket. "Left side."

She held it up facing me. "No, it's on the right side." She tapped the left side of the ticket, which was on her right since she was facing it toward me.

"Well, if you're reading it, it's on the left side."

She handed it back to me, looking a little confused, but then brightened when she saw me take it with my left hand. "Oh, that's it," she said. "It's on the left side for you because you're left-handed."

I swear this is true.

When you're at BW3 you gotta go with one of their Beer's of the Month. They usually have at least one choice that's good.

I don't think that is what happened but younger people move Random ass nonsense humor.

My friend points at the dad and said "you fouled him" doesn't make sense

They just changed over from a system where the order number was obvious and in big letters, but that's a whole different story.



Now I'm confused.

They spell out the numbers. I had to find "Three hundred and twenty-three" on my receipt today, for example.

They should use Roman numerals. That would be fun.

"Number C-X-L-I-V, your order's ready. C-X-L-I-V."

If I had a restaurant, I'd definitely do that.
