I thought it fair to add that customer's aren't the only one's who do or say really stupid or frustrating things, as I have run into a few employees who have either made me boggle or just plain made me want to reach across the counter and strangle them.
Here's a few that I can remember.Me:(standing at the counter of Burger King)
Hi, can I get a number 1, with cheese and..hmmm...throw in a large French Fry on the side too.Worker:
I'm sorry we no longer carry French FriesMe:
What? But...you guys have always had them...I love your guys' french fries....Worker:
Yep, we no longer carry French Fries, those are for the gutless cowards. We have Freedom Fries.Me:
-.- You mean the fries that are no different from the fries before, just a different word in front of them?Worker:
They are different, they're totally for Americans dude.Me:
Can I just get some french fries please?Worker:
We no longer carry those dudeMe:
(at this point losing my patience) Look, they're the same thing, just give me the fries already. Can I just get my food without you waxing political agenda?Worker:
It's just that we no longer-
(This continued for a few more back and forths before I eventually was stopped by my friends and they ordered for me.)
Though for a shorter one I have....
(At McDonalds a couple of years ago)Me:
Hmmm, I think I'll take a large strawberry shake and two double cheeseburgers.Cashier:(whom looked haggard and worn)
Sure, you want cheese on those?Me:
Can we uhhh....forget I said that, it's been a long day.Me:
-laughs- By all means
The there was the time I spent 10 minutes on the phone arguing with this tool who said he couldn't deliver the pizza to me. Claimed I wasn't in their delivery area, nevermind they had done so several times, including two days prior. Of course I remained calm (my patience for people had increased greatly since the Freedom Fries incident) but he proceeded to get snide and snippy. I eventually lost it, much to my roommate at the time's amusement (apparently seeing me lose it and chew people out is a spectator sport for everyone around me, I must be that amusing) and chewed his ass out for a good 5 minutes and talked to the manager. Turns out I was right and the worker was a pothead moron, I was comped breadsticks and a 2 liter.
