Road trip may set you back ~450 miles due North. Since it is breakfast, you'd have to leave early.
Hellman's used to be the only kind that we would buy. Then we tasted Duke's. Now I wait for Publix to have it on the "buy one, get one" list, and then I grab a few.

450 Miles north, that would put it around Newberry SC? We can do that.

Slightly off topic, but just as annoying as not giving you the right order is this. They hand your bills and coins in one pile. The coins are on top of the bills, where they slide off to the ground, or you have to carefully balance the coins on the bills as you pull your change into your car. Is it that hard to take an extra 10 seconds to give you the coins, then the bills? This drives me NUTS!!

And this, boys and girls, is why we pay with a credit card, or even better, Apple Pay (or the Android equivalent).

I cannot recall the last time a cashier counted my change back. It is a lost art.

You’re right on using plastic, V-Tail.

When I see a pile coming at me I go crocodile and ask them to hand me one thing at a time. At a Backyard had the lady manage to get my card, straw, drink, receipt and ketchup all in her mitt and reach out the window.

Uh, no.

Ask them “what can I get for $5?”

I've just given up. When the cashier at Publix or at the drive thru hands me the change, bills, receipt and straw all at once, I just take it in my left hand and, in the grocery, stuff it in my left front pocket and in the truck, drop it in the space behind the door pull handle/thingee (no idea what you call that), and humbly drive or walk away.

I tell myself I'm smart enough to pick my fights, but, really, I'm just beaten.

A guy I used to work for would go into a fast food place, put a five dollar bill down on the counter, and say "Just give me some food."

"Sir, you have to tell us what you want."

"It doesn't matter. You're not going to give me what I ask for, anyway."

I don't go to McDonalds often, but I have noticed the last 2 times I ordered fries, I got medium, not small.

Yes it was. It was typical of this guy. Chip on his shoulder. Almost enough to make me quit, but the work was enjoyable, the pay was excellent, and I only had to see him for a couple of hours each month while we worked out my teaching schedule.

While out on an adventure yesterday I ended up at a Chick Fil A to get my son some carryout. We have very few Chick Fil A's in Michigan.This one happened to be in Toledo Oh,62 miles from home. Drive thru, girl takes order and CC with Ipad,2nd stop get receipt,3rd stop get food. Combined I wasn't in the drive thru 2-2 1/2 minutes. Had I not been stuffed from a BBQ meal just before I probably would have been forced to try the peach milkshake. Instead it gives me a reason to visit again.



I'd rather be armed and unharmed than unarmed and harmed.

I always order:

Give me the McFatty, just the sandwhich.

Seems to work.

Go again, get the Peach shake. I had a 3 mile walk ahead of me after lunch (90+° humid walking on hot asphalt) so I got the Peach shake. Excellent, with small bits of peach mixed in.



I may not be that good looking, or athletic, or funny, or talented, or smart...
Shoot, I forgot where I was going with this, but I do know that I love bacon.

The way to deal with this is simple- expect to be asked these kinds of questions and deflect them as politely as you can. Don't get me wrong- this kind of thing annoys me, too, but taking it out on some minimum wage schmoe is not the cure.


Thank you Para. I always hate reading posts about people who intentionally screw with minimum wage employees. Yeah, the girl behind the register isn’t good at math. If she was she probably wouldn’t be ringing up groceries for 8 bucks an hour. I don’t want to do it myself, nor do I want to pay 10 bucks for a loaf of bread so that the store can hire people with bachelors degrees in mathematics to work the line.

You want $50 cheeseburger service? Go to a place with $50 cheeseburgers.



+2 for the comments,

Thanks


when I was in the grocery business, folks always complaining about the help,

actually had a few folks complain about the special needs folks we employed, comments that were just amazingly rude and honestly stupid,

had one complainer ask me to hire his kid, since he was so awesome and would be better than those I had employed,
so I did,

when he was cut loose a month or so later, for a good cause, the guy was pissed,

seems his kid was not as great as he had told me he was, and I reminded him, politely, of that, after he got thru with his minor tirade,


dealing with people looks really easy from the outside, however some folks (customers and retailers) seem to want to make it harder than it needs to be

We have a CFA very close to our house and another just a bit farther away. In the mornings and up till noon, (I've never been to either one after noon) they have from one to three "kids" outside on the walkway leading to the drive-thru. You give your order (they have a small menu with them, though I always know what I want), they repeat back your order, give you the price and you pay them if you are using a card, phone, etc. If cash, you pay at the pick up window. Fast and I've never had any problem.

I like it, and I really like the employees. I've have been going long enough several recognize me and exchange pleasantries.

I'm sometimes pretty cynical about the "younger" generation and I suppose that's pretty common, but these young people make me think, talking to them briefly about their lives, college, plans, that maybe we'll survive this idiocy the left seems determined to implant in our country.

I always say "nuggets only" or "sandwich only"

If I ask for meal I make that clear too.
