From an RHUer:
Just quit my fast food job. Here are some things that would piss me off:
1. When a custy doesn't listen.
"Hi, how are you?" "Number 5 with a diet coke."
"What size ice cream?" "Chocolate."
"I want a hamburger. That means no cheese." No shit Sherlock.
"I'm sorry, my headset was breaking up, could you please repeat that last item?"
"Ugh, I SAID, a CCHHIICCKKENN SSAANNDDWIIICHH."
3. When people pull up to the drive thru, and I greet them anywhere from 1-3 times and get the old "HEELLOOOO???" Or honking at the speaker.
5. Stupid fucks.
Orders coke and sprite. I hand out the drinks. "Um these aren't labeled, which one is the sprite?" You dumb shit.
6. Loud people.
Let me dig through my entire car for that last nickel I owe you. Ma'am it's fine I have some left over change. No no let me get it, that wouldn't be fair to you.
8. Dive Thru Slow Pokes:
We are timed in drive thru. From the time you pull up to the speaker to the time you leave the second window, we have 2 minutes or 120 seconds. People that take their sweet time to order, dig around their duffel bag of a purse for money, and open every sandwich and pass around the food, and have a fucking picnic at the window piss us all off. And don't poor shit out at the window it attracts ants.
For people to assume retail and fast food employees are lazy slobs who don't go to college, they sure don't have room to talk when they can't figure out the coke machine. "I just want a coke." Ok press the button that says coke. Ta-da.
If you are older than a 5th grader, don't leave a mess looking like a 3 year old just ate at your table. On my last day, a bus of old farts came in and not only were rude and condescending, they left the 2nd biggest mess in our lobby I have ever seen in my 4 years of fast food. Also people that do their business all over the bathroom walls and toilets are disgusting. Are people really getting this stupid? And once someone let their hellspawn finger-paint with honey mustard on the window. Slobby messes everywhere!!! Gross! My parents would have beat me if I left a mess in a restaurant and now I see why.
11. Lazy coworkers.
Do your job, yes sometimes it's hectic but it isn't hard. Keep shit clean and stocked.
12. Custys Who Can't do math.
Why do my four 99¢ burgers cost $4.34? .99x4= 3.96. Sales tax of 9%=4.34. I don't see where you're getting the 3.99 from!! Me:???? It's second grade math!!
Coworkers who forget to type in the amount of money the customers gave and can't figure out the change. Not really annoying, but somewhat bothersome that I have been complimented on my counting skills by a customer. Again, second grade math!
I also worked in a grocery store for a year. Won't say much but here are a few things.
Stinky people. Take a damn bath!
Put your cart away! Where it goes!
Don't throw shit like groceries and money.
People who can't follow simple instructions. "Press the yellow button" *presses red button* "ok let's start over again"
If you decide you don't want something, don't leave it lying around, I will gladly take some time off of the till to put it away for you. Seriously.
Don't shit your pants in the store if you are older than 4.
(Sorry this is pretty long, but I feel better after some ranting. I try to be as polite as possible and did actually somewhat enjoy both of my jobs. I am now working at the school I attend, which is much less gross and annoying. Thank you for your time RHU.)
