One of the many, many reasons I left the Golden Arches had to do with their half-assed approach to enforcing policies and the obvious favouritism. My store was in the middle of the city, and we closed well after public transport finished. Now as a responsible male adult I couldn't, in good conscience, allow the young girls we hired to walk home, at midnight, through some of the shadier parts of the city.
So I would always give them lifts home. Nothing inappropriate ever happened, it was just me being a decent human being not wanting to get our girls raped and/or murdered. So after doing this for months guess what happens, if you guessed I was commended for using initiative and keeping the staff safe then you're a moron. If you guessed I was reprimanded for "fraternizing" with the staff, ding ding ding get yourself a drink. That's right, for being a decent person and keeping our staff safe I was reprimanded.
However the other managers who would go clubbing with the staff and even sleep with them which was a well known fact, not a word was said. My suspicion was that it was because I was the second most expensive manager in the state and I was one of the newest managers having taken 3 months to go from hire to manager. I didn't stay long after that.
Now from pizza hell. Despite having three guys attempt to rob me 2 weeks after I started work, I continued to be one of the best drivers there. (The attempted robbers got 2 pizzas that I dropped and trod on, when they came at me, and 2 bottles of coke.)
Anyway one night we get a call from someone saying he has a coupon for a price we know is only valid on one night a week. Of course it's not that night. He is told he will have to provide the coupon because he keeps insisting it's valid. Anyway I take the delivery because I'm the only driver willing to deal with this crap. I tell him I need the coupon and lo and behold he has cut out just the price of the coupon. None of the details, not even leaving the store name on it. Luckily our coupons for selected days are colour coded so I know it's for only one day and it's not that day. I tell him so, and he keeps carrying on that it is valid and he's not paying more etc.
Then says he has to pay by card. Our store never has done card payment on delivery so I tell him he'll have to call the store to do it. He rings the store, and when the person answers he tells them he has to pay for his delivery, but then starts saying he has a coupon despite me telling him it is not valid, and I won't accept it.
I cut him off and tell him again it's not valid at which point he asks the person to call him back saying he hasn't got much credit. As soon as he gets off the phone he rounds on me carrying on and saying something along the lines of, "Shut the fuck up cunt I've got a coupon."
I, showing great restraint for me, say, "Have a good night," and walk off with his pizzas.
As I get back in my car I hear his wife come out saying, "What's going on?"
His reply, "He's leaving with the fucking pizzas!"
And her response made it all worth it; "It's because you couldn't keep your fucking mouth shut you dumb fuck!"
I get back to the store only to find out he'd complained to the manager claiming I tried to steal his phone. Which we laughed about and promptly barred him from ordering ever again.
