First post, two tales of suckiness

Just went to Burger King to get some food, because there is practically nothing in the house and I can't process my paycheck until tomorrow so I can grocery-shop. Either the cashier I got was really out of it, or she just wasn't paying attention.

Me: "Hi, I'd like a medium number seven, with mayonnaise instead of the honey mustard, and I'd like it to go, please."
Her: "Did you want the meal or just the sandwich?"
Me: *thinking she just missed that one part* "The meal, thanks."
Her: "What size?"
Me: *....starting to wonder* "Medium."
Her: "And is that for here or to go?"
Me: *resisting urge to scream* "To go, please."

Honestly, woman, pay attention the first time I said it! I made sure to cover it all at once, I didn't speak hurriedly or mumble, and it was all in English. I did that to save us both some time in which you ask me those questions. Next time, pay attention to the customer instead of standing around listening to your coworkers (who were all doing absolutely nothing, by the way) chatting about whatever.

Another tale of suckiness, not mine but a school friend's. She recently quit her job. Why? One of our other schoolmates died in a car accident recently, and they wouldn't give her any time off (for ONE DAY, or even just a FEW HOURS) to go to the funeral. The kicker? One of the other employees broke up with her boyfriend and they let her have A WEEK off to "get over it."
