The positive of this is that while I may send a complaint to corporate for this store while complimenting the woman that was trying to handle the cluster fuck going on around her, I've decided to send a raving positive for the other McDonald's I occasionally go to because no matter how busy they are, they always manage to move like a well oiled machine.
I've worked McDonald's. I know how hard is it too look that together during a lunch rush at McD's.
So my wife dropped her cell phone in the tub the other day, and we needed to get a new one because it died.
I go to the Verizon store and explain. "My wife dropped her phone in the tub, and it got wet. So I need to buy a new one."
Robert The Verizon Guy says that we can't replace it because the warranty doesn't cover water damage.
"I understand that. But I still need to buy a new phone."
"Well, sir, she's eligible for a new phone in July. You can get one for free then."
"I know, but we can't wait until July. We need a new phone NOW. I'd like to buy this same model, if I may."
"Sorry, but like I said, we cannot replace the phone under warranty. Water damage voids it."
The dude wasn't getting it, so I asked for a manager. Why can't we buy a new phone if we accidentally ruin the old one?????
The manager was HAPPY to sell me a new phone, and he therefore got the commission. Too bad that "Robert" didn't. Thanks to the awesome manager, my wife has a phone again. (She'll be more careful with this one.) I am glad that he, at least, understands the importance of good customer service. I never did learn why Robert didn't want to sell us a new phone, but it doesn't matter now.
So....Monday I called my doctor's office and left a message on the prescription refill line about my upcoming pain pill refill.
Tuesday I get a call from my doctor's nurse. My doctor is out of town and won't be back until Thursday. Nurse knows I'm out of pills and asks if I will be ok. I tell her I should be fine, as long as he authorizes my refill first thing Thursday morning when he gets in. Nurse tells me no problem and she'll put my file on the top of the pile.
Thursday rolls around. I wait and wait and wait. I call my pharmacy to see if they've received authorization. Nope. I call the doctor's office. Receptionist checks, and nope, doctor hasn't gotten to it yet. (This is Thursday afternoon, btw.)
Thursday comes and goes, no pills. By that time, I'm hurting like hell. I'm having difficulty walking, standing, sitting...pretty much doing anything hurts.
So this morning, I call again. I get the same person I talked to yesterday. She apologizes and tells me he will definitely get to it today. I will have my refill by the time they close. Ok..no problem.
I wait a few hours and then I call my pharmacy to see if they have my refill. Nope. Nothing yet.
By this time, I've had it. I helped my parents move today. I can't stand up straight. I can't walk. I'm almost in tears.
I call the doctor's office again. I get someone different this time. I explain the situation and tell her how I'm 3 days over due, the whole situation on how I can't even move blah blah blah.
Her response? He's not going to get to it today.
Well then why the fuck have his nurses told me that I was going to have my meds by now?!? She got pissed off and told me that I just need to quit calling and take it easy, he'll get to it when he gets to it.
Ex-fucking-scuse me?!? I'm at my breaking point and she tells me to take it easy!?!
ARG! Hopefully they will be open tomorrow for their normal Saturday hours. I'm going to call and they better get me my meds or I'm going to raise some serious hell.
So, bit of background. Been having a really shitty day. Found out I was lied to by an asst manager on a power trip about getting a job that I really needed and had a fight with my brother just an hour before I went to Wendy's. On to the suck.
Pulled up to the drive-thru, ordered, and proceeded to have to correct them twice because they were ringing me up wrong. Normal for some drive-thrus. Then I get up to the first window and thats where the "fun" began.
Me as myself DTLoD - Drive-Thru Lady of Doom
DTLoD - *opens window and holds out hand* $5.10 Me - *holds out $10.10* Here you go, $10.10. *smile, smile* DTLoD - *closes window and ignores me* Me - *waves for attention* DTLoD - *wave sme on then finally opens the window with an annoyed look* Me - I haven't gotten my change. DTLoD - *evil look* You gave me a 5! Me - I gave you a 10.
I admit I snapped at her, but I didn't yell. Just raised my voice.
DTLoD - You don't have to yell! Me - I'm sorry. I shouldn't have snapped at you. DTLoD - *go away asshole look* Me - I did give you a 10 however. DTLoD - *pulls out a 5 and thrusts it at me* It's not a big deal. *snappy, bitch tone*
Not the worst suck in the world, but the whole time she was giving this look that just pissed me off. And the tone she took with me was unforgivable. I want to at least report this to her manager, but don't know if the fact that I did snap at her would hurt my credibility.
