No joke!!!

About 6 months ago, a friend of mine was spending the night at me and b/f's apartment on a Sat night. At 3am, we decide we want Jack In The Box (JITB). My b/f (who didn't go) wants an assload of tacos & I'm really craving an oreo cookie shake. We go, wait in line, & are told they are out of tacos. Lame. We go to another JITB, no tacos either.  (if i was in a bitchy mood i probably wouldnt have gone to so many but I know my b/f would have gotten mad, & we didn't hav eanything to do anyways.) 

So we go to the third JITB, which is next to a 7-11. There are a few people standing outside. We pull up, and I say what I want. I wait like 10 seconds and no one answers me. I say, "Hello?" a few times & still nothing. Okay?? So we pull up to the window, which is WIDE OPEN. I can see everywhere inside the restaurant and there is not a soul in there. I say 'Hello?' a few  more times and nothing. We sit there for an incredibly long time wondering what to do, as this has obviously never happened before and has to be the wierdest thing ever. By this time there is a car behind me, who has been there for several minutes at the speaker. I didn't want to leave because I knew that someone MUST be in there. So I roll up my window as my friend and I start wondering aloud if maybe the JITB workers were murdered, and tons of other bizarre scenarios, because why else would the window just be wide open if something sudden didn't happen? So we're sitting there thinking, and I start wondering about the people at 7-11. 

We drive away onto the main street, and I see the two people outside 7-11 smoking cigarettes, both with collared shirts. It's very dark outside, so I turn around to drive by again, and the people are walking towards JITB. I stop in the middle of the street, roll down the window and ask if they (two teenagers) work at JITB. They simply say 'yeah' like it's no big deal, and keep walking. The funny thing is they KNEW when I had first pulled up to JITB (& the other car as well) because you can see the drive thru clear as day from 7-11. I was absolutely furious at this and called the 1-800 number when I got home to see if I could leave a message because I knew I'd forget to call the next day. Of course I did...

I'm a newbie here,and I was sent over here from customers suck. ^^

My dad (visiting today) and I went over to Wafflehouse for breakfast. We got a couple of slices of toast, he got coffee and I'd already had orange juice here. More of a snack, really, than breakfast.

It came to $4.43, with tax. The tip my dad would've usually left would've been about $1-$1.25 right?

This lady never brought him (or even offered) any more coffee, never asked us if we wanted any jelly. She threw the apple butter that's standard at us (not a sling at our faces,but they bounced when they hit the counter) and what did she do the rest of the time?

She hung out with a friend over at the jukebox selecting $8 or so worth of songs. She couldn't even be arsed to give us our check. After ten minutes of being finished (we DID just get toast) and sitting there we finally went over to the cashier. It took another five minutes of her screwing with the jukebox, AFTER BEING ASKED BY A CO-WORKER TO GIVE US OUR CHECK! to finally get the check.

Her tip was still $.57.

And she glared at us for interrupting her with the jukebox. ...and no. She was not on break (we checked). Her co-worker looked as pissed as we were... and there were four other people there. Five waitresses.

Yikes much?

Though the door guy was awesome.


Okay, so this isn't really bad service, but I'm just curious if I'm the only one weirded out by the following event.

Yesterday I went to Zaxby's for lunch. For those who aren't familiar with it, it's a fast food type place that serves chicken fingers, wings, etc. As I was waiting for my to-go order, I noticed a guy and a girl who were probably in their early 20s also waiting for their food. However, they weren't wearing any shoes. After I got over my initial shock, I wondered if anyone else had noticed.

I didn't see a "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service" sign inside or outside the restaurant, but doesn't it go without saying that if you're entering any establishment, especially one that serves food, that you should wear the appropriate footwear?

None of the employees said anything to them, but this could have been because they couldn't tell they weren't wearing shoes.

I didn't say anything to management, but should I have? Would you have said anything?

(Also, if this seems more appropriate for customers_suck, which I realize it might be, let me know and I'll put it there instead.)

No Love for Southwest Airline (And TSA Sucks Too)

OK, so I was flying up to Reno yesterday (Saturday) and I got to LAX pretty much exactly two hours before my flight -- about 11:25am when my flight was at 1:25pm. This is standard for me and my husband and it's always been plenty of time before, even when the lines have been horrendous around holidays and such. This time the line to check baggage on the sidewalk with the Skycaps (which is what I usually do) was longer than I've ever seen it, seriously. Even about a year after 9/11, when people'd started flying again but the security bozos hadn't gotten their act together (so much as they ever did) and things were insane -- this was worse. I thought maybe the lines inside were shorter so I wandered in, hauling my suitcase and my laptop bag, but the lines inside were even worse, winding back and forth and around their little tape-and-stanchion maze and then way off to the other end of the terminal building and out the door, with the line heading some unknown distance in the direction of Terminal Two. OK, forget that. I go back outside and get in line.

Bank of America

Does Bank of America charge for savings accounts? 

I haven't used any BOA account for over 6 monthes, and I got a letter in the mail saying I'm overdrawn by $12.53 in my savings...how the fuck is that possible?? Do they charge? When I signed up I specifically asked her if I was going to get charged for my accounts (BOTH checking and savings) and she said no. She said they were student addounts and I would never be charged. Did I speak with an idiot? Was she lying to me? Because there was money in the acouunt (not a lot, probably five bucks) about six monthes ago, and when I opened the letter it says I'm over drawn and they are going to send me to collections. wtf?

Bridal shop woes...

Where I live, debutante balls are generally a time of excitement. Looking back on it, it was a fun night but over so quickly. Whether all the preparation and stress put into it was worth it is unquestionable, except for all the stress about my dress...

Hmm... Apologies for the lengthy post. I hope no one else who goes there has the same experience as me. It really put a lot of unnecessary stress into something that was supposed to be fun and memorable. :\
