About 3 months ago, I started work at a local Burger King. Within the first 2 days, I was working up front on the cash register, which means I have the pleasure of greeting and serving food to every single customer that comes in. As you may have guessed, we see some very weird, funny, and just plain stupid stuff on a daily basis. I'd like to start sharing my stories as some of you may find some entertainment in my hardships.
To start, I'll bunch a whole lot of them together off of the top of my head and make replies for future stories. With the way things are going, I should have at least 1 story per day. Hopefully this isn't a borefest for you guys, because i definitely get a kick out of working there.
Here we go.
My first day on drive-thru and I was very disoriented. So this lady pulls up with at LEAST 3,000 coupons. So with one of those coupons, she gets an "original chicken sandwich". She specifically asked for ketchup (wtf?) on it. Since it comes with mayo and lettuce, I asked
"Would you like to remove the lettuce and mayo or keep them on?"
I get the brilliant reply of "Yes."
So I ask again. "Would you like to keep the lettuce on or have us take it off?"
I was at the front counter, and i see a gentleman walk up with a CO (corrections officer) uniform. I greet him and ask him what he would like, to which he replies "I'd like TWENTY EIGHT Whopper meals." To make my life even more difficult, nearly every Whopper was made differently (some with no pickles, some with cheese, some with light mayo, etc). So, after like 15 minutes of ringing him up, I walk to the back and see some very stressed out coworkers. Apparently, a prison bus broke down in our parking lot, so they had to feed the inmates. On that day, they dined like kings.
Today, I was wearing a headset because I was taking some drive-thru orders. Somehow, we got on the topic of one of my coworkers getting kicked in the gonads. The General Manager (The head-honcho, the boss, the big cheese, etc), who also has a headset on, says over the headset "it's not like he ever uses them anyway..."
If one more guy in a diesel trucks comes through the drive-thru and literally SCREAMS his entire order, I swear to GOD I'll flip a turtle.
I would like to declare that there is a special place in hell for everybody who comes in and orders nothing but smoothies, milkshakes, and various forms of ice cream in a cup. (The person up front has to make all smoothies, ice cream, milkshakes, ICEES, frappes, and iced coffee.)
Old ladies with coupons. That is all.
Oh, and old people that order fish sandwiches. Now, that is all.
OH, and for the asshole who keeps making a mess at the ketchup dispenser, I hope you're happy that you made a stocky, bearded, 19 year old cry a little on the inside. (Usually on the inside anyway)
STOP ORDERING 10 PIECE NUGGETS.
AND BUFFALO STRIPS. PUT THE GOD DAMN BUFFALO SAUCE ON THE STRIPS YOURSELF.
A coworker of mine told me that he has a fanclub of girls who also work at our Burger King that would happily lick whipped cream off of his nipples. I am also developing the same fanclub. Not sure if I should take them up on that offer though...
Well, that's about all I can think of so far. Let me know what you guys think. Should I make daily updates on this? If any of you guys reading this happens to work at BK, share some stories. I'd love to hear them.
