you should see what goes on , out here on the plains , in the brick and mortar stores.
its a crying shame that people do not take more pride in how they conduct business with the general public.
customer service, comfort , convenience, Hell just old fashioned deportment are half way out the door

Personally, I would gladly pay 10-20% more for fast food that's a higher quality and for service. The size of the meat patty on the regular cheeseburgers at all of the big 3 is totally laughable nowadays. I'd gladly pay $1.50-2 a cheeseburger if the hamburger patty was the size it used to be 5 or so years ago instead of a $1 or whatever. If I'm on the run and driving I prefer a couple of regular cheeseburgers over a 1/4 lber or other as they're easier to eat without spilling anything.

Here in the Bellingham area we have a 13.50 minimum wage and a cashier at McDonald's still takes your order.
20% more is overly optimistic.
Just to satisfy my own curiosity, I looked up the price of a "big breakfast with hotcakes" at the Bellingham WA, King Street McDonald's and the El Paso, TX Paisano Drive McDonald's.
El Paso $4.19
So, the mandatory $13.50 minimum wage and courteous smiling cashier's result in alot more than 20%. From $4.19 to $6.69 is about a 59.666% increase.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Ken226,
A 38 percent increase is still insignificant on a low priced item. If you are feeding a large family on fast food that could be a problem.
I edited my post. 38% was a guess. I actually used a calculator this time
From $4.19 to $6.69 is a 59.666% increase.
Jeeze. My basic math sucks this morning.
My wife encountered the same situation at a Wendy's in Williamsburg, Va the other day. Employee refused to take her order at the counter and insisted she use the touch screen on the other side of the restaurant. She walked out. It's depressing that people are acquiescing to this like sheep.
Do the touchscreens have pictures for their illiterate patrons? How do they deal with the visually impaired? There is always a way around this stupid stuff if you think hard enough.
The logical extension of conditioning customers to bus their own tables
What if you have coupons? I just bought a cheap lunch at Burger King, no kiosks there. We also have a sheet of Mickey Ds coupons, but we use the drive through.

Now if you'd like a good burger at a great price with very good service you can stop here:
The burgers are 95cents, beer is cold,mixed drinks are fairly mixed.
I'd rather be armed and unharmed than unarmed and harmed.
I’ve been there! Great burgers!

The self checkouts at grocery stores are awesome. They would be more useful if two things were done:
20 item limit. I hate it when someone gets in line with an overflowing cart, and struggles with every barcode.
Have some sort of ID check for alcohol purchases. Facial recognition software is good enough that it should be able to compare the photo on my license to my face. License has a barcode of sorts, scan that to confirm legitimacy.
As far as the fast food kiosks, I’m okay with them. I don’t worry about the germ factor. Door handles, tables, button on soda dispenser, etc. they’re all dirty and we touch them.
Now if I modified my food in any way, I don’t know if I would like the fast food kiosk.
I also find humor and irony in this thread. People are horrified about touching the filthy kiosk, but chime in on the “remove shoes at home” thread in defense if tracking filth through the house. I’m just baffled. Refuse to touch a public touchscreen, but don’t think twice about tracking anything and everything through your home.

Our work cafeteria just went to all digital ordering. You can order from your desk for pick up in 15 minutes. You can show up and use the touch screen. But you can't show up and use cash. You have to purchase a café debit card and then use it in the touch screen or call in. The issues we've started discovering is that once you order it is put in the queue, then put on the shelf. If you get a phone call or visitor, etc. your order sits there til you claim it. Unless someone else decides they like yours better. And it's the 'honor system' for getting your drink. What could possibly go wrong?

Seriously, that's exactly right, bet the same folks bitching about tech screens were the same ones encouraging companies to invest in the tech in order to eliminate jobs because of $15 an hour minimum laws.
Probably same ones bitching about the sub par employee level at these locations not getting orders right and now want them taking the order.
You know, "they F-you at the drive in!!" kinda comments LOL.

yesterday between jobs I decided to do the drive through at a McDonalds... only because as of late they are fast... too fast even....
I pull up to the speaker and what I get is to listen to some woman talking on the phone to a friend about her boyfriend for about a minute... I said "hello?" a couple of times but got no response and finally decided it was better to just drive off....
now here is the extra funny part.. I drive down the road about a mile and go through another Maceedees ... pull up to the speaker tell them what I want...no cars in front of me pull up to the pay window hand the woman the exact amount and then head toward the pick up window and that person has my bag of burgers already stuck out and waiting....
It’s how they hire and manage. You have to be willing to fire people even if that means you are covering some shifts. My buddy owns a pizza, sub, salad franchise. Their employees are good but they, the two owners, split their time and make a lot of appearances. It shows.
