Ordering food today:

Me - I’ll take a mushroom and Swiss burger.

Order taker - Do you want cheese on that?

Me - Yes

Order taker - American or cheddar?

Me - Do you have Swiss?

Order taker yelling to the kitchen - Do we have Swiss cheese?

Cook - Yes

Me - I’d like Swiss then.

I guess they could not fit the word cheese on the menu. You could have been requesting a Swiss citizen. Gotta be sure. Lots of folks get Cheddar on their Swiss burger I guess.

The good news is I got everything I ordered. I really tried to make it simple by ordering what was on the menu. No special requests. The biscuits and gravy, bacon and cheddar cheeseburger were no problem.

I ordered a bacon cheeseburger once and the blond order taker said, "we don't have a bacon cheeseburger." Then, "I can get you a cheeseburger with bacon though if you want that instead." I just considered it entertaining but she was serious.

Chicfila has probably the best trained work force but we seem to have found the kink in the training.
Wife likes the 12pc grilled chicken nuggets with two avocado lime ranch dressings for each 12ct ordered and i normally get her two while i am at

When busy the always have 5-6 order takers walking the drive through.

So i order a sandwich meal, 2-12ct grilled nuggets and 4 avocado lime ranch dressings.

Get to the window and pay. Get the order and only two avocado lime ranches.

I remind them that i asked for and want 4. They always start with the you only get one for each 12ct bla bla bla.

I finally lost it yesterday and cut the guy off and said i don't care. I asked for four and want four. If you charge me then charge me but i want four damnit.

Guy slow walks to the fridge and gets two more at no charge this time.

Charge if you need to but give me what ordered!!!! They haven't been trained to deal with simple things.

Ordered at Panera a Smokehouse Chicken sandwich and requested no cheese.

It was a carry out, got to the car and checked the receipt and the order.

“Smokehouse Chicken, no Chicken” is what the receipt said, checked the order, yep, no chicken!

I hate it when I’m ordering a hamburger..

Me: I’d like a hamburger with mustard, ketchup and pickle only

Cashier: would you like cheese with that?

Me: NO that’s a cheeseburger. If I wanted a CHEESEburger, I’d ask for a CHEESEburger. I want a hamburger, mustard ketchup and pickles only. (Sometimes I’ll add: don’t fuck it up)

Mrs. Mike gives me the look…

Interestingly enough, regardless of where we buy a burger, they always ask that.

Same as mine, but I always get hit with:

'Do you want the meal or the hamburger?'

The burger. If I wanted the meal, I would have asked for the meal. Duh?

Why is this so hard???

More than once I’ve asked for a cheeseburger with nothing but ketchup and had the person confirm you just want a bun with ketchup, no meat or cheese.

My last trip to Taco Bell. Line is long. I'm behind these two women who are just talking up a storm. 10 minutes later they reach the register. Oh, we have to decide what we want now. Me on low simmer behind them watching all this thinking half my lunch hour is wasted. They decide and order and stand there for another 30 seconds before it hits them they have to pay for their order. Both start digging about in their garbage bag size purses, thinking my head is going to explode if they try and write a check. People who have no clue that there are others around them just really piss me off. Did I lose it? Nope.

I feel like the day I blow my top at work is going to come sooner than later.
Last week, guy walks in and says, “I need Sakrete.”
Me, “What type?”
Idiot, “Sakrete!”
Me, “80lbs, 60lbs, fast setting, crack resistant, mortar?! What? Type?”
Idiot, “Uh...80lbs I guess.”

Fuuuuuuuuuck! Mad
