“That’s what she said”

November 18th, 2008 · 201 comments

Spotted by Randi in Charlotte, North Carolina, this one’s straight out of the Michael Scott playbook.

Do not forget to say hello to our special employee of the month Janet G. She may be slow, but she trys.

    Their “special” employee of the month?
    Perhaps they are running a monthly work program.

      That’s what I am thinking, still quite a back handed compliment. In my wildest dreams someone got ahold of the managers key and re-programmed the receipt print out as a joke on a friend, which is funny to me and not sad…

    fyi – the term ‘special’ in educational lexicon refers to students with special needs, often with intellectual disabilities. Without a doubt, Janet is employed by the restaurant in a program to promote self-sufficiency. THAT SAID, the so called ‘normal’ employee who can’t spell ‘tries’ needs to be called out by the spelling police.

      My sister Janet, went to art school, in a short yellow limo.

      It took me about a week to figure it out, that art school meant ’special’ in educational lexicon refering to students with special needs, often with intellectual disabilities.

      My school, like most schools, featured the occasional attempt to integrate the special ed kids with the regular kids. Most usually in PE class. Not that that worked all that well. The non-tards would usually get annoyed by the tards on the team. “Stick him way in the back of the outfield and call him the ‘rover’ or something. You don’t need him at first base.”

      Tards? seriously? NT stands for neurotypical which most of my kids are, two are NOT neurotypical, one had ASD (translated-autism) and rode the “short bus” in early childhood. Not fond of the word retard and esp not “tard”, I know there is more class here than those statements represent.

      I think ‘special’ sounds more offensive than ‘retarded’… it’s called mental retardation, so why shouldn’t they be called retarded? OH honey, you’re just SPECIAL. That’s like saying that Santa Clause IS fucking real.

    “Special” employees. Janet is “slow”. I get it, and I’m all for helping the mentally and physically challenged secure mainstream employment. To a degree. I draw the line, however, when ty manage to find work in the food service industry. The last thing I want is Janet’s chubby, slobber-soaked fingers touching my cruller or I-Am-Sam’s big green booger plopping into my double espresso.

    Yeah, I know that there’s always a possibility that I’ll be subjecting to the malicious placement of bodily discharge by sum disgruntled hipster. I try to discourage that by tipping generously and being really nice to the staff. But being nice to “special” employees is counterproductive. They get so giddy over approval that they lose track of what they’re doing and basic concepts such as hand-washing and swallowing excess saliva every so often slips their minds.

    So bully for Janet, but never mind on that order. I’ll go up the road to Tim Horton’s where the special employees are only allowed to take out the trash and scrub the toilets.

    If every country had stores that served both Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins ice cream, our problems overseas would be quickly over.

      Amen Tripp, Caramel Eclair Sundaes can solve the economic disparity faced by the Mentally challenged of this great country. We can also count on the combined might of Baskin Robbins and Dunkin Donuts to solve the Mid East problem. Who in their right mind could blow up people eating Hot Fudge Apple Fritter Banana Splits. Now if we could figure a way to add Fried pies to this sugar laden solution, The whole world could sing in one part harmony.

    Note to all: My name is Janet and I was the recipient of a joke gone bad. My nephew placed this message at the bottom of my shop receipt without my knowledge. It was solely intended for me and not meant to insult any individual whether or not they may have challenges of any type. I apologize for his behavior and lack of thinking. As of right now, the receipt footer has been reverted to it’s original message. Lord knows we all have our own challenges, and right now, my nephew is mine. Again, I apologize to all who were offended by the message, and emphasize that it was not meant to cause harm or pain to any individuals at all. Thank you, Janet / North Tryon Dunkin Donuts & Baskin Robbins

      Janet, I think your apology is incomplete unless accompanied by an offer of a free apple cruller to one and all.

      Janet – how did you find us?

      Are you Polish?

      also, what is the message at the bottom of the receipt now?

      secondly, why the hell was your nephew able to change the receipt message? is he the manager of this Dunkin’ Donuts??

      thirdly, why the hell did you get your nephew a job where you work?

      How old is he?
      Why does he have access to the store’s systems?
      Why didn’t you have him write the apology?
      Is it because he can’t spell?
      If a tree falls in the forest, can I have a LG Hot Chocolate?

      This can all be worked out, Janet. Just see Casey in HR.

      Thanks for clearing up that he did it without your knowledge.

      ‘Cause it wouldn’t be a very good joke if he told you about it first.

      And also, could you tell us how many people did say hello to you, and what percentage of them spoke clearly and used small words?

      First off, until today, I was not aware of the change on my receipt, and unfortunately no one said hello to me or maybe it would have tipped me off. My nephew can not write the apology as he will not be alive to do so when I find him. Yes, as a family member he does have access to my computer. He lives to prank me, but got carried away this time. Sorry we do not make apple crullers Joe, but if and when we do, you will be the first one to get a free one. The original message simply stated that if you have any questions, concerns, or compliments please call me at ***, and that is what has been returned. No, I do not believe I am Polish, I am simply put an American Mutt. So then again, I could be… One of our regular customers was nice enough to give me this web address so that I could clear up the situation. So hopefully, this answers all of your questions, and now maybe we can move on to a more interesting topic. Janet

      Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions, Janet. We’re not laughing at you, we’re laughing with you.

      You might want to look into a spelling tutor for your nephew, though.

      ;)

    Okay, I won’t kill him. Would love to put him on PAN……… (I’m smiling now) But my sister would then kill me after she did him in. But I have copied all the messages making fun of his spelling etc. and forwarded them on to the little sh**. Real ego buster guys, thanks. Janet

    That is sweet… I think they probably didn’t have to point out that their employee was slow, it was probably obvious to the customer.
