Have it your way, jerk

July 14th, 2009 · 205 comments

A message from your friendly fast food worker, Corey in Mount Pleasant, Michigan: “Sometimes, food service customers do not fully appreciate the people/work that goes into making their orders. It’s thought that spitting in someone’s sandwich is routine, but we often find the secret messages to be more satisfying.”

FUCK YOU burgers

      My sister loves the Schmolverines (even though she’s not even from that state), her boss is a Shmuckeye supporter. They get into fights that would give the Greek Gods a run for their money. We’re talking tossing of tissue boxes at each other. One time he even locked her out of the building until she admitted that the Shmuckeyes were better than the Schmolverines.

      You know, I watched it on TV once, and American football always struck me as an incredibly nerdy game. The colossal amount of statistics and standing around in a huddle to discuss tactics — mid-game even! — all classic traits of games designed for nerds. All they need to do is introduce a rule for rolling a d20 to decide which team starts off and we’re in business!

      I do have to note that UM lost to Appalachian State two years ago, and I’d bet that that team would face adversity in the MAC.

    • #7.1   claw71 bang

      They probably ordered at the drive-thru window. It was a family of seven and it took them 30 minutes to figure out what they wanted. After much indecision and several orders being rescinded they ended up getting exactly the same thing. The “fuck you” burgers are mild when you consider the fact that the gangbangers stuck two cars behind them are going to pull up along side of their minivan on the freeway and bust mad caps in them.

      If I was the manager and some customer had no problem with the amount of condiment, but was upset because it looked a lot like a letter, I would tell them to get out of my face and go get a life.

Well what sizes do you have? Okay hmmm. How big is the supersize? Oh, wow. No, gimme the medium. And okay, what do you have to drink? Let’s see…”

      “Number 6 with a Sprite”

      True story: When I worked at McD’s, we had a regular customer, a woman with lavender hair, who insisted we make her hamburgers square, like at that other place. Her reason? She liked to tear off the corners and give them to her dog. No matter how many times we explained our frozen discs could not be formed into squares, she would still insist every time.

    BULLSHIT!

    That’s right I’m calling bullshit on this entire submission. There’s no way this is real. Seriously, people, when is the last time you ordered a burger from any fast food place that wasn’t swimming in condiments?

    Hey, I’d happily eat the “F” in that “fuck you” train if that’s the only way I can get a sandwich that doesn’t have a pint of ketchup on it but I know that’s jusdt not going to happen because people who work in fast food don’t care enough to do something like this unless they think it will get them published on PAN.

      its not a bs post actually. i hadnt known about passive aggressive notes until long after participating and taking this photo. the ketchup was placed on the bottom of the bun mid-sandwich because thats how i felt at the time. i submitted it much later on..with only that small hope that someone might actually find it as equally enjoyable as we did that evening.

      thanks though ;)

      BK recently added a burger with spicy onions on it and the commercial implied that the onions were angry because apparently they were sexually abused as children. The onions then chose to take out their anger and frustration on your mouth(because they were spicy).

    You know…I worked in fast food for a couple of years, and the food prep people really *DON’T* have it as bad as this person is suggesting. Sure every once in a while you get a douchebag who makes your day miserable, but honestly how hard is it to hold the pickles every 5th burger?

    Although I do have to thank the person for making his passive-aggressiveness harmless. Nothing wrong with getting out some anger if it’s not going to hurt anybody. That’s definitely better than defiling someone’s food, and the satisfaction of doing it is identical IMO.

    And for the record, I never spit in anyone’s food. Ever. I had some coworkers who occasionally liked to employ in that kind of asshattery–though coughing on food was generally their worst offense–and it disgusted me beyond belief. No karma in the universe is worth the momentary satisfaction of hawking a loogey in someone’s sandwich.

      I totally agree with you. Not saying that fast food is a good career choice or anything, but working at Mickey D’s for a couple years during high school is kind of a character-building experience. I never did anything worse than putting WAAY too much salt on one asshole’s burger. Oh, and also, BEWARE when you ask for a burger “well done.” Oh, you’ll get it well done, my friend. Trust me on that. Or, “extra extra” of anything. Oh, you will get your extra extra ketchup, don’t you worry. It may be difficult to find the meat in there, but hey, you asked for it!

      But anyway, I never saw any worker spit or spooge in anyone’s food. I would still happily eat at McD’s if I didn’t think the food sucks. I am not scared that it’s been adulterated by the workers.

    The reason there isn’t enough ketchup is because the customer was screaming through the drive-thru that, “You people better not be piling on all the ketchup to get away with undercooking my burgers, dadgumit!” The sentiment was repeated three or four times, each time louder, as though the customer thought the employee was deaf. Also, notice the almost-empty condiment bins? That’s because the jerkface that wanted seven special order burgers (“I SAID LIGHT KETCHUP! DID YOU GET THAT? DON’T BE BURNING MY BURGERS AND COVERING IT UP WITH YOUR STUPID KETCHUP!”), eight shakes, five orders of fries with no salt (“I want them no salt so I know you made them fresh. You people always try to give me the old, soggy fries. Haw haw haw! Oh, and could I get some salt packets?”)? He came in two minutes before closing time.

    I wasn’t there, but having spent four years of my youth working in fast food, this was a scenario that played out many, many times.

    The buns spell out F-U-C-K-X-O-U, Xou being the snippy little woman from the nail salon. She always orders seven bacon cheeseburgers, sans bacon. Don’t you dare call them “cheeseburgers”, though. You have to say they are bacon cheeseburgers with no bacon or she’ll start shrieking that you’ve gotting her order wrong.

    If the losers who work in BK would put down their joints and stop venting their anger at customers (who pay their wages), they could go to vo-tech school and get some training for something useful, then people would appreciate them. At least they have jobs, the ingrates. A monkey could serve that crap and with a better attitude and clearer skin.

      GK,”Vo-Tech” is short for “Vocational/Technical School”. Often called “Trade School”.

      There one can learn a trade such as automobile mechanics or plumbing or electrical work.
      It’s for the kids that are not destined for college careers.

    I right now work in a fast food restaurant, and it’s not because I’m lazy or lack an education. I graduated from college and haven’t been able to find employment in my field (social welfare and justice). Quit assuming that fast food workers are lazy or retarded for working in fast food, the economy sucks and hurts a lot of college educated people.

    As for the note, I fully understand, because sometimes customers are legitimately stupid. We recently fixed up automated greeters in the drive thru so that it could suggestive sell certain menu items.. however, before, they all had female voices, thus more easily ignored, but now this one had a male voice. I’m taking an order at another speaker (we have 2 of them that people can order from) when someone approaches my window.

    Me: Ma’am, I didn’t take your order yet.
    Woman: But I gave my order to that nice gentleman!
    Me: Ma’am, that was an automated greeter.
    Woman: Oh, well you should still have my order, I already gave it to someone!
    Me: …..

      It’s basically an off shoot of Social Work. I was dumb in college and got excited about this relatively new major that had cropped up, and by the time I realized that maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to go with a major that was only created because my university (a Catholic one to boot) decided to drop the actual Social Work major (I’m guessing to save money or something) and only created this one after someone complained of the hypocrisy, I had already completed about 3/4 of the requirements necessary to graduate, and since I was relying on only myself to pay for college, didn’t really see a point in staying longer and racking up more bills.

      I’d suppose technically I could possibly work as a social worker that takes kids away from homes…. but that’s actually pretty hazardous. Been at least one social worker killed within the past year while out at a house to remove children from their home…

      I will not deny that fast food workers probably deal with more than their share of stupid people, but I really don’t think rolling your eyes at a woman who responded to one of those annoying automated greeters best makes your point. Your business went out of its way to make people believe they were talking to a real person, so I don’t see where you can act all superior that some people fall for it.

      I am decidedly not stupid, and the first time I encountered an automatic greeter in a drive thru, I was a bit confused myself.

      I just don’t do “drive-thru”. You can’t really know just how loudly to speak…and there’s too much pressure to know your order…NOW…from the cars behind you and the pimple asking if he may take your order.
      I prefer to go inside and ponder my wants, so I walk the whole 15 yards from the parking lot to the counter.

      Old-fashioned you say? I suppose so, but I’m not so pressed for time that I need food delivered directly into my car window.

      That, and I just don’t like “thru” being considered a fucking word!

    • #34.6   Q

      All the automated greeter is there to do is to suggestive sell an item to a customer, usually an expensive item. It says nothing after that. If someone were to actually start taking your order, your order would show up on the screen that is outside just to ensure that the order is rung up correctly, the total would be given, both on the screen and verbally, and you would be directed to the first window. It’s also standardized for the 7 other restaurants in the town that I live in as well. And the same thing is starting to be the case at fast food places that bother to update their equipment on a somewhat regular basis (i.e. Wendy’s, or Burger King, or McDonald’s, etc). There’s such a redundancy in showing a customer that their order was rung up and in verbally telling them that their order was rung up that I honestly think that people responding to an automated greeter, thinking it’s a real person, and then getting confused when they get to the window is a sign of people just not paying attention… and if they can’t bother to pay attention and realize that greeter sounds like one of those “Your number is not in service” voices, what else can’t they bother to pay attention to?

      Plus there’s the fact that it’s a male voice speaking when most of the people who end up working in fast food around here are female, and from what I have seen, people did not respond to the female automated greeter like they are doing to the male automated greeter….. >.>

    They never understand no cheese. I get cheese even when I don’t mention it, and it’s not actually a part of the item. (Regular Whopper for instance)

      i’m not sure anyone ever said the actual job functions were difficult. more so, making every order under 2:30….for both busy dining rooms and busy drive-thrus. whilst you have some asshat manager barking about how the temps need to be done. the tomatoes need to be sliced and how the girl on front cash doesnt smile enough.

      the duties are easy. but stack everything up. demand a fast time. deal with douche bag managers. and then throw in an irritable customer that doesnt have any idea what they want…..

      thats when you get a ‘Fuck You’ burger set.

      I worked in fast food. Yes it was crappy. Yes I couldn’t wait to leave. Yes, I was lucky to have that job at the time. So you know what I did? Shut my mouth, did my job and went home, kept looking for a better job and got the hell out of there. Only someone who expected to be at that job for a long time would take it so personal enough to write derogatory comments on hamburger buns. Sheesh, it’s just a stupid temporary job. If you’re there for longer than two or three years, you’ve got problems.

      Eh, it depends on why you stay there. Only reason for me that I haven’t actively searched for a new job as of late is because I’m 7 months along and it’d seem unfair to other workers at a new job location to hire someone new and then have them leave for a time for maternity leave.

      Working in fast food, I know it’s not really that hard or that demanding of a job, and yet I suppose that’s because I’m actually efficient at it to the point of impatience with other people because I don’t see how it’s so hard for them. It’s a physically demanding job, sure, and does require some mental capacity, but yeah, it’s not that *hard* (I still feel sad at the time I quickly corrected a customer’s order by adding something and she was impressed, because other people normally would sit there for a minute and be stuck… depressing). I also wouldn’t say, though, that only someone who expected to be there a long time would write a message like that– not everyone is like you.
