Ordered a chicken nugget kids' meal for $3.23 (including tax). I -know- how much cash I gave the cashier. The kid had $2 left (I'm teaching him budgeting-yay!) and I gave him $2. Then he found 11 cents in his pocket. SO. We gave the cashier $4.11.
Not thinking, because the kid is talking and I'm tired, I screw up and pull away from the window before she gives me my .88 in change.
I sigh and mention it to the second window cashier, apologizing profusely...
Only to get the first window cashier (from here on out known as 'bitch') run up with a 'You gave me exact change! :D' and flaring a receipt that wasn't right. (Note: It is impossible to have given them correct change. I got $2 from the kid, $2 from my own wallet, and 11 cents from his hand. If I had given her 'exact' change, it would've ended up being $3.11, not $3.23)
Of course, after I drive away, it's easy to punch in exact change and pocket the 88 cents.
Then second window slammed the window shut on me before they gave me the kid's drink. ...It's not like it was packed. It was usual beginning-of-lunch-rush, but we're not talking about a line around the building with no parking-there were only 3 cars in drive through and maybe 5 on the lot.
After two minutes of me eyeballing the window, considering tapping on it, she opens it and looks at me confused. I blink at her and ask what had happened to the drink (politely). She stares at me... and freaks out, flailing around in the box, throwing things to look for the drink. What the hell?
Eventually she pours the kid one and we leave. Man, fuck that McDonalds. I'm never going there again.
Note: Some of you might find the .88 petty. It's still theft, in my book. Obviously I'm not going to lose sleep over it, but it still annoys me.
