The last 4 times I have eaten at a burger joint, 1 actual restaurant and 3 fast food places, they have screwed up my order. Now, had my order been some convoluted mess I might understand but my order is ketchup only.

HOW THE FUCK CAN IT BE SO DIFFICULT TO LEAVE EVERYTHING OFF THE FUCKING BURGER AND THEN SQUIRT SOME GOD DAMNED KETCHUP ON IT?

If burgers came preloaded with lettuce, pickles, onions, mayo, mustard, ketchup I could understand how my order might be difficult. Fucking shit people... I want my fucking burger the simplest way possible yet no one can seem to get it right.

KETCHUP ONLY YOU FUCKING IDIOTS.

fast food people don't care because their jobs suck ass. A restaurant should be able to get it right though, I would think. I like my burger cooked a perfect medium, but I don't eat fast food and I'm not picky so I never seem to have any problems.

Eat what they fucking give you. Do you think they fucking care what you want? No. If I worked at a restaurant and some pissant wanted his burger done up a special way i'd rub my taint on the meat before and after cooking to ensure proper coverage. Then I would ignore whatever request they had, especially if it was "ketchup only."

Because when someone says "Ketchup only" to those people, they're thinking the customer is talking about condiments, so they put everything on the burger with only ketchup (no mustard, no mayo).

I won't gripe about some lettuce... its the pickles really. They leave that slimy juice all over the patty that wrecks the flavor of the food. Even when I pick it all off, scrape it, then re-ketchup it... all I taste is pickle juice.

I'd guess it's hard to get it that way because they've already got 10 of 'em made up the normal way sitting there under the lights. It's just easier to chuck it in the bag and go. I'll bet less than 10% of people ever go back into a restaurant and make them fix the order (I assumed fast food meant drive thru) when it's wrong. Then you run the risk of getting a burger with ketchup and spit too.

Not in the slightest. You're actually fucking up their normal routine and requiring extra work from them. When you custom order something like that, they can't just grab one off the warmer and quickly throw it in the bag. They have to go back to the cooks and ask for it to be specifically made that way. At that point, your order has been passed through several people. Each of which hate life and couldn't give 2 shits about you or your burger.

If anything, your burger should cost extra, and you should expect it to take longer than normal.

Seriously, if you're asking for a burger "with no lettuce and onions," your verbiage may be to blame. That line could be interpreted that you want no lettuce, but you do want onions. Perhaps try "no lettuce OR onions" or "no lettuce and no onions."

What's in it for them to do so? They're working a min wage job, and most likely they'll get paid the same whether they screw up 0 orders or 10 in a day. It's a product of the system. Fast food places will never pay a decent wage, and don't care about their disposable workers because there's an infinite supply of them. The company cares much more about their bottom line than they do about your customer satisfaction.

As a former waiter/bartender and witness to kitchen shenanigans; if you're complaining about your food to a guy making $8 an hour in a shitty job AND a regular at these same places. Well, then taking off a slice of tomato and lettuce is the least of your worries about what your ingesting. You're probably more intimate with burger prep staff than their boyfriend/girlfriend after a 2 hour drunk oral sex session on ecstasy.

I know going in that it's going to be a gamble. If a dish is not even in the same ballpark of what I ordered, I assume that some poor soul is getting what I ordered, so I let them know about the mix up.

Worked at popular restaurant chain for 2 years in college and the worst people to piss off are the chefs by making them do 2x the work for something trivial and petty. If something was legitimately burnt or a wrong order there was never a problem but for people just looking to be a dick...

They've had forks in their mouth that just came out of a rectum, toilet water in their pitcher, semen in the mash potatoes and they've grown very good at hiding it.

"Don't piss off the people that handle your food" is a very true statement. If you're really pissed grab the manager and tell him you're not paying and leave because once it's in the hands of the monkeys to decide justice gentleman's combat rules go out the window.

In an instance that stands out to me, I didn't get the burger how I wanted so I didn't get one at all.

Burger King had some promotional burger, and one of it's condiments was chipotle mayo. But it was some double patty and bacon monstrosity, and a whopper was more my speed. I like all things spicy [Oh, and it was a lull period with nothing in the bins, so whatever burger I ordered would be made then and there], so I asked for a whopper with the chipotle mayo instead of regular.

No.

Not even a "that'll be a quarter extra."

No.

WTF? Walked out.

OTOH, the same place [different manager on duty] last week had no problem with putting jalapenos and fire sauce from their NEW monstrosity burger on my whopper. Didn't even charge extra.

I agree, too. However, if it's a consistent problem with the drive thru, and it's just about ketchup (or mustard) on an otherwise plain burger, I'd find it worth the effort to use a packet rather than having to go back to the restaurant.

The only thing I want omitted from a burger is cheese, and that seems to be quite a chore for those in the kitchen. Even at sub shops, when I say "no cheese", they either stare at me for a minute trying to compute that someone actually doesn't want cheese, or they say "what kind?" as if "no" is some new type of cheese but they aren't sure they heard me correctly.

These discussions piss me off because I am picky about how things are served to me, but very polite, clear and concise in my orders.

And I'm not talking about sending things back, can't imagine I've done that more than 2-3 times in my entire life, actually can't recall a specific instance of EVER doing so. MoF I DO recall in college eating the less burnt half of a burnt helping of lasagna at the Olive Garden, and only complained a the end when the manager asked if everything was delicious. More meekly pointing to the burnt half on my plate.

I'm more like what's her name in 'When Harry met Sally.' I like red onions on my salad, and Outback has them but doesn't put them on there, so I ask for some to be put on there. Or at Red Robin, I love blue cheese on a burger, but they put A1 on their blue cheeseburger, so I either order that without the A1, or different burger with blue cheese instead of whatever cheese normally comes on it. I also have a habit at FF restaurants of ordering something custom [even if it's just extra onions] just to assure that I get something fresh, but I don't do that when they're slammed and have a bin full of fresh product. That kind of thing.

Its one thing to 'piss off' cooks by always sending shit back. Its another entirely to "make them do 2x the work for something trivial and petty" when all I'm doing is ordering my food in the manner I would most enjoy it.

Those people who rant and rave about a different place, or sigh when they get their food like "this will have to do :o/ those people suck in real life. You have to find some sort of contentment in every day tasks to be remotely happy in life. If you are complaining about your fries being too salty, I wonder how you are going to react when your mom gets breast cancer and dies.

Actually... if they'd give me the recipe and access to their ingredients/kitchen and a minor price reduction, I'd gladly cook my own meal.

The only thing I want omitted from a burger is cheese, and that seems to be quite a chore for those in the kitchen. Even at sub shops, when I say "no cheese", they either stare at me for a minute trying to compute that someone actually doesn't want cheese, or they say "what kind?" as if "no" is some new type of cheese but they aren't sure they heard me correctly.



“Who told you to put the cheese on? Did I tell you to put the cheese on? I didn't tell you to put the cheese on. You people with the cheese. It never ends.” –Jackie Chiles

And another thing about the cheese. Whenever I'm at someone's house and they are grilling burgers, they always seem to put cheese on every one. When I request some without cheese, they look at me like I just jammed a fork up my rectum. So they make a few without cheese - and those all get taken as soon as everything is served.

I guess its like the phenomenon where someone ordering pizza for a party always orders 1 pepperoni and 5 supreme, only to have the pepperoni gone in 1.2 seconds, and the supreme lingers like a bad fart.

These discussions piss me off because I am picky about how things are served to me, but very polite, clear and concise in my orders.

And I'm not talking about sending things back, can't imagine I've done that more than 2-3 times in my entire life, actually can't recall a specific instance of EVER doing so. MoF I DO recall in college eating the less burnt half of a burnt helping of lasagna at the Olive Garden, and only complained a the end when the manager asked if everything was delicious. More meekly pointing to the burnt half on my plate.

I'm more like what's her name in 'When Harry met Sally.' I like red onions on my salad, and Outback has them but doesn't put them on there, so I ask for some to be put on there. Or at Red Robin, I love blue cheese on a burger, but they put A1 on their blue cheeseburger, so I either order that without the A1, or different burger with blue cheese instead of whatever cheese normally comes on it. I also have a habit at FF restaurants of ordering something custom [even if it's just extra onions] just to assure that I get something fresh, but I don't do that when they're slammed and have a bin full of fresh product. That kind of thing.

Its one thing to 'piss off' cooks by always sending shit back. Its another entirely to "make them do 2x the work for something trivial and petty" when all I'm doing is ordering my food in the manner I would most enjoy it.

That's not anything I'd worry about from my experience.

There's a Wendy's near my house that I've gone to for years. They must have turned over some staff recently - lately they've started fucking up my order fairly regularly. I get a spicy chicken sandwich with cheese and honey mustard. They'll either give me the regular order one or put yellow mustard on it. Apparently there's no word for "honey mustard" in Spanish. :grr:

I realize these people aren't making jack shit (with the added bonus of being goddamn illegal aliens who don't speak a word of English), but I was there once too, and if I wasn't a fuck up back then there's no reason I should have to tolerate somebody else's fuck ups now.

I remember, back in the day, when the standard condiments available for a hot dog were ketchup, mustard, and relish.

If you wanted to get fancy, you could make a coney dog with chili, cheese, and onion. Or one of those nasty ones with sour kraut.

Order the burger plain and ask for a ketchup packet.

That is a brilliant idea! If you get a packet or three of ketchup, then you can be sure that you get how much you want on the plain burger.

Back when I used to eat at McDonald's, it took forever to get my quarter pounders with cheese and jusy ketchup and mustard, so I stopped ordering it that way and just took the onions and pickles off myself. If they have to think about what to put on or not put on it takes longer, even if there is less stuff to put on the burger.

Hmmph. When I grill my locally famous Belly-Buster Burgers (tm), all that is needed is sharp cheddar, spicy mustard, and my homemade barbecue sauce. Lettuce and a bit of red onion are fine once in a while, but my guests and I are happy with just the cheese, mustard, and barebcue sauce usually.

I just find it funny that a hot dog and some toppings are held out there as some gourmet meal that must be put together exactly "this" way.

Funny you should say that. I actually had a Kobe-beef hot-dog a few months ago. To be honest though, it didn't really taste much better than any all-beef hot-dog you can make at home. Seemed like kind of a waste to me.

I generally get pretty plain burgers as well. Cheese ketchup and mustard. It isn't a huge deal for me because there is nothing that goes on a burger that I absolutely won't eat so if it gets messed up it isn't an issue I just prefer it the other way.

The idea that it is too much to make a reasonable request that "this and this or not this" go on your burger is absurd.

Back on topic.
Personally I don't like anything on my burgers. plain, NO condoments what so ever, maybe a very tiny splash of BBQ sauce if there done on a BBQ, other than that..notta

One night I'm crusing along,(stop reading now Mr.Lane, yes this is another trucking story) about 3am, stop at a road side choak and puke, tell the waitress I want a Plain Cheesburger, fries, and coffee.
I get my order, look at it and say:

Me: Excuse me Miss, theres Ketchup, mustard and onions on my burger waitress: So, whats the problem
Me: I wanted it PLAIN,
waitress : astounded look on her face, IT IS,,,
Me: NO, it has Ketchup, mustard and onions on it, please take it back and get me a PLAIN one.
Waitress: That is a plain one, loaded means you get relish, mayo,lettus, pickles, and baccon.
Me: No, this is a cheese burger, with 3 condoments on it.
Waitress: So what do you weant me to do?
Me: Take it back, and bring me a PLAIN cheese burger
Waitress: How do YOU define plain
Me: Shaking my head in disbelief ...Meat patty and cheese, on a bun
Waitress: Thats not even a cheese burger.
Me: So what would you call it?
Waitress: I dont know, but it aint a plain cheese burger, look at the menue, it even says so!
Me: How about a coffee,black no sugar, to go instead.
Waitress: what about your plain cheesburger
Me: You dont know how to make one, so why bother wasting time ordering it.
Waitress: (no with a very snotty voice) We cook to order, you can have what ever you want, THE WAY YOU WANT
Me; Ok, I want, a hamburger, with nothing but a piece of cheese on it, NOTHING else, just meat and cheese on a bun
Waitress: I see, so you want a plain hamburger, with cheese.
Me: yes.

5 mins later, plate drops in front of me

Me: Ahhhh miss
Waitress: Yes? Is there a problem
Me: (trying not to lose it compleatly) Yeah, my hamburger has Ketchup, mustard and onions on it.
Waitress: So whats the problem?
Me: Your shitting me right? I watched you write it down. You know cook to order....
Waitress: Sir, I told you a plain burger comes that way, a loaded burger has more toppings.
Me: Ya know what, since the coffee tasted like shit, the fries never did show up, and you don't know how to "cook to order", here's a buck, for the cup of black swill I almost drank, have a good night.
Waitress: Hey, your paying for this mister, thats 2 burgers you've sent back to teh kitchen.

As I'm leaving, I look back into the kitchen, and see a cook doubled over in laughter, and another employee with tears in her eyes.
I ask em "WTF"

They look at each other, then the cook speaks up....."We told the boss she was too stupid to even work the graveyard shift, but NOOOOO would they listen to us?" Heres your order driver, have a good run, and watch for the cop sitting behind the gas station on the edge of town, as you start down the hill. He loves to write tickets to truckers, that was his wife, and she's always complaing to him about how truckers give her such a hard time at work. ".

Seems I was the 5th or 6th trucker that night since midnight who got up and left with a free meal in a to go bag.

Epiloge:
Must say after losing 45mins in that place, and leaving half pissed at human stupidity, when I finally tasted it, it was one of the best damn burgers I ever had. Toasted bun, 2 pattys, and 3 slices of cheese. And mr cop got a high single finger salute as I went by....at 5mph under the speed limit.

Normally, I agree. I don't eat onions on anything but burgers.

They add a crunchy, sweet, slightly tangy twist that is excellent. You're not getting crunch anywhere else on your burger.

Ketchup is no substitute for tomato. Your desire for ketchup on a burger is just an undeveloped appreciation for tomato. With a tomato you're getting a superior texture addition and a more balanced level of sweetness added to the flavor. Ketchup is too strong, it's high fructose corn syrup.

It should also be noted that tomatoes go well with cheese. A cheeseburger without a tomato is an even greater crime.

You're welcome.

When I eat a homemade burger, I put a tomato on both sides of the patty. HOLY SHIT that's good. A little messy, but good.

It's the most vile tasting thing imaginable. And yet everyone in my family loves them. Both sides, in-laws too. I don't get it.

If they're slimy, something's wrong.

The biggest nightmare for plain burger orderers is the dreaded "scrape off all the goodies and maybe they won't notice" burger. Ohhh, yes we do notice :#

Your view of mushrooms is pretty stupid, to be honest with you.

This is one of the tastiest things in the world and it's not slimy, nor does it grow on shit, nor is it like eating mold (which can be amazing in cheese, BTW):

Mushrooms are a fungus that grow in shit.

Sure, they are now grown somewhere other than in shit, but they are still a fungus.

Gotta disagree. Only thing in my adult life that I've nearly thrown up because of the taste was Stilton. Tasted like vomit. Moldy cheese is fuckin' gross.

I don't think I've ever seen a mushroom growing out of shit and I've been on many mushroom hunting trips when I was younger.

Used to see them everywhere in the hills above my high school.

Wrong kind of mushroom then, maybe? I don't know. Not all mushrooms are edible (some can even kill you) nor are all edible mushrooms created equal.

I do. I make it year round. The idea of certain foods being seasonal has always been silly to me. If I want something I eat it. I make other soups, like chicken and noodles in the summer too. And I have salads and use the grill in the winter. I'm like a crazy person.

There are a thousand different kinds of mushrooms.

Doesn't matter.

The first mushroom ever eaten was one growing wild in shit.

I do believe if the mushrooms are growing in shit, you dont want to eat them unless you enjoy hallucinations...

I don't know so I'll believe you since you were probably there to see it. My point is that the mushrooms we eat are not growing out of shit in the wild, at least in my experience.

If you are craving the best chili in existence, go to McGonigle's Market on 79th and Ward Parkway/State Line, and pick up a jar of Champion Select Chili Fixins. Amazing stuff, and a few people on this board will agree with me. Its just a shame more people don't have access to it.

Hmm. I used to live a block and a half from McGonigles. Great little store. I still stop in on occasion for a sammich and Magoo fries. I might have to check that out for lunch tomorrow.

Thanks
