Cheese on a cheeseburger? Only if my hamburger can be made from ground beef.
Link Posted: 1/20/2006 11:37:50 AM EDT
My wife always orders a HAMburger with no cheese. 90% of the time they still put cheese on it.

"Cheese on my cheeseburger? How fucking dare you. Perish the thought. I shall not be hornswaggled by you and your socialist ways."



"Yes, please."

I always thought hamburger meant no cheese and cheeseburger meant with cheese.

If I order something that comes with cheese, I'll throw in, no cheese please. 50% of the time it comes back with cheese, so I check my order before I drive off. But honestly, it doesn't bother me, I just accept the fact that it will be screwed up, and when it isn't, hey! It must be my lucky day!

I wanted a cheeseburger in the worst way after I got off work the other nite, yeah it was 4am but I didnt care. I pulled up to the Jack in the Box down the street and they guy came over the speaker 'sorry, computer down, no order tonite'..........DANG, why do they need computers to make a freakin' cheeseburger.

I really like it when I go through the drive through and they ask "is this for here or to go?"

Pullupparking? WTF? It's a drive through, not a park and wait.

I got a little pissy on that one at the KFC one time. Nobody else in the drive through line behind me. I pay and then she wants me to pull over to the parking lot and wait. I say "that's alright, I'll wait right here" (since there's nobody behind me). She insists that I pull in the parking lot because apparently there is a timer that clocks me from when I arrive and then pull away. She doesn't want to screw up their delivery time. Not my problem. Work faster next time. I sit and wait to get my food. That got her all bent since it added two minutes to the timer she was trying to beat. Of course she most likely wiped my Honey BBQ Strips on the toilet seat within that two minutes. Oh well, they're still yummy.

Counting change should be a mandatory training/testing that takes place for all fast food/convenience store employees. I would not hire a person in retail if I owned a business and they had to rely on the register for counting change.

Some goobers think a plain and dry double bacon cheeseburger should come with no cheese or bacon.

When she asked if you wanted cheese, you should have said "No, just regular cheeseburgers"

I hate it when I order a coke and they say "All we have is Pepsi, is that okay?"


I always respond with "If that is all you have, I guess I have to settle."

Just tell them to hold the cheese between their knees. It worked for Jack! (well, almost.)

"On my cheeseburger? Uh...sure."

The total came to $5.40 - I handed her $6.15. I had 15 pennies & decided to swap out. She gave me a confused look and repeated the price, "Your total is $5.40."

"$5.40, yes. Just give me three quarters back, please."

A momentary pause before the light finally went on..."O...K....oh, alright. "

The drive-thru is set up to take your money at one window and pickup the food at the next. When I got to the 2nd window, a silly looking blockhead, nearly sticking his face all the way out of the tiny window says loudly (and with a smile), "Please pullupparking." "What??" "Pullupparking...you pullupparking, she bring the food."

Of course, I'm not complaining and this certainly isn't unusual for the fast food industry around here but it did stir my curiousity as to whether or not everyone else experiences this in their neighborhoods.




At the Jack in the Box near my office, I always have to pull forward and wait. JITB policy is to give the customer an antenna ball if they have to wait. I have an entire flock of the damn things rolling around the floorboards of my van.

When I get one of those confused looks, I want to say "Just punch in the numbers."

With the federal minimun wage being $5.15 an hour, it seems tacky to complain about the inconsequential stuff from fast food workers.

I ordered "A Quarterpounder with cheese - no ketchup or mustard"

They asked "A quarter punder plain?"

I said "No, I want the pickles and onions, just no ketchup and no mustard"

I received a quarterpunder with burger, bun, cheese and TARTER SAUCE!

WTF ?, OK I could see screwing up the pickle/onion thing, what with 1950's microphone technology and all (or so I would guess buy listening) but Tarter Sauce?

one time me and my friends were wanting to get some wendy's food late at night. so we walk 2 blocks down the street to the wendy's, only to find that the inside area was closed, but the drive-thru was open. so we walk around to the drive through window and try to order from there, but they say they can't serve us, because we can't just walk up to the drive-thru window, we need to be in a car to order. so we walk back, get in the car, then drive to wendy's and order at the drive through winedow. i order a milkshake, and the guy says "ok, 1 milkshake, with extra herpes HSV-1". i was like WTF? some seriously retarted people working there.

Try this one ...

When you get to the window to pay, give them a $20 bill. And when they ask you if you have anything smaller than that, reply with "No, all my $20's are the same size."

You can just watch their eyes glaze over as they try to process that.

Minimum wage has nothing to do with English fluency, intelligence, social skills, or work ethic.

You'd think so but most fast food employees are viewed as transients. Why put anything into them b/c they be replaced soon enough. At least most of them can figure out how to let the register do the change.
Link Posted: 1/20/2006 12:26:23 PM EDT
Ok, a little equal time now. I used to work at a Chick-Fil-A and we got some incredibly stupid people coming through our drive-thru.

Idiot at drive-thru "I'd like my order to go please."
Really, we thought you were going to park at the window and eat it here.

Idiot at drive-thru "I'd like a roast beef sandwich" For those of you who don't know. Chick-Fil-A does chicken and that's it.

Us: I'm sorry we don't serve roast beef.
Idiot: Well, I got one here last week.
Us: Uhhmm, you must be mistaken, we've never served roast beef.
Idiot: This is the worst customer service I've ever had. Just give me the !@#$ roast beef sandwich. I can't believe how !@#$ stupid you are. I'll never come here again!

Idiot on telephone: I got a Chicken sandwich at your restaraunt and when I got home it was hot. I burned my mouth.
Me: Sir, we do our best to serve hot, fresh food. If you find that the food is too hot, let it cool a little before you eat it.

Idiot at counter: I called in an order, is it ready?
Cashier: What's your name?
Idiot: Smith
Cashier: I'm sorry, we have no order for Smith
Idiot: Well I spoke to Wes
Cashier: Are you sure you called this store?
Idiot: Yes.

Meanwhile, I slip off to phone and call Wes at the other store. Yes, he has an order sitting there waiting on Mrs. Smith. I tell Mrs. Smith.

Her respone: Well, I know I called this store.


That's enough for now.

At Hardee's, the only burgers they sell are cheese burgers. I find it annoying to order a cheeseburger with no cheese!

It also bugs me when I order a hamburger. Hamburgers do not come with cheese, cheeseburgers come with cheese! When I order a freakin' hamburger, I don't want cheese!

My favorite fast food story was I went to a McDonald's early one morning. The drive thru was closed. Inside was an insane line of people. The manager was the only person who had shown up for work that spoke any english. She would take three or four orders, go back and tell the "I'm sure documented non-english speaking employees" how to make what was on their screen. Hand those out, and take three or four more orders.
I didn't wait long. I left.

Same thinig here if I hit McDonald's for breakfast. Line is 10 cars deep around the parking lot. It's a game to say to myself, "OK, if I got in line now, where would I have wound up if I didn't just go inside where there was 1 person in line?"

Although, I did once catch them favoring the drive up over the counter. Some bastard got my Steak-Egg-Cheese Bagel! I let the manager have it. Never went back to that one.

Someday I am going to write a thesis on the insistance of the american culture to put freaking cheese on a hamburger!

If I wanted cheese I'd order a cheeseburger!

As someone who helps out in my brother's diner, allow me to say I AVOID fast food chains as much as possible. If I can juggle the orders of 50+ people, make correct change without a register and not spill stuff on people, why CAN'T they figure out that cheeseburgers HAVE cheese on them????

Or that when you order a 'bacon cheeseburger PLAIN' it means :bacon/cheese/burger/bun, not a meat pattie wrapped in wax paper???

Or that 'ketchup only' means no onions and no pickles and no mustard but WITH ketchup because kids don't like alot of crap on their burgers?


Gah.....

On the flip side, I love when I have a large party and need help carrying the plates to the tables and the other waitress asks "who had the 2 over easy with hash and rye toast," and nobody claims it until I say, "Guy in the blue."

What??? Took us all of 8 minutes to get your party of 10's order out and you already forgot what the hell you picked???

I swear to the Good Lord Himself, my wife went through the drive-thru at McD's today and there was a piece of bark the size of a toothpick on it. It looks like a piece of splintered lumber. WTF??? She could have choked and died. I will be going back tonight to discuss it with the manager, and yes, she still has it. It doesn't surprise me, it is what I have come to expect more and more. The libs always say: "the rich keep getting richer, and the poor keep getting poorer." I say the average American is more stupid and apathetic than fifty years ago, and hence, has a lower earning potential.
