-Once I went to McDonalds with my grandpa and I wanted 2 cheeseburgers with ketchup only. We get up to the window, they give me my burger. I look at it and there's no cheese on it, so I take it back and restate my order. I said I asked for 2 cheeseburgers with ketchup only. They give it back to me..
...they forgot the meat this time. It was only bread, cheese and ketchup. :C Needless to say my grandpa went in to complain and came out with free fries and a free drink and the correct burger order.
-I ordered a salad for a vegetarian friend and all their salads have some sort of meat on it (I talked about this dilemma with the clerk at the counter) and I asked the the cashier if I could get a caesar salad with no chicken on it. And she's like "if you want a salad with no meat on it, the cobb salad doesn't have any meat on it". I said "yes it does, cobb salad = bacon, ham, egg etc etc, that's meat". She's like "bacon isn't meat, It's bacon". So I asked for the caesar salad with no chicken. She proceeded to ask me if I wanted grilled or crispy chicken on that. *sigh*
-It took not one, not two, but three people to take my dad's order when I went with him to this Burger King. All my dad wanted was a burger just the way it came, but with an extra patty of meat. The first guy didn't "speeka zee ingles" so he brought over his manager. His MANAGER /also/ didn't speak English very well, and so they had to get another employee who spoke English but with a very thick accent. This is in Southern California so I'm not surprised but damn, deviate from the menu only slightly and you're fucked.
Jack In The Box:
-The one by my work has given me so many problems. Once, the mayonaise tasted like mint. I mean not even subtly like mint, but like someone took their gum and blended it into the mayonaise. It was foul. I would have thought it was some employee's vendetta against me if it weren't for the fact that I always try to be polite to fast food workers because I have to see them everyday and well..I worked in the food industry myself.
-Another time my sandwich tasted like coffee and was strangely soggy. I didn't order coffee so how my sandwich got into contact with coffee I have no idea.
-Another time I was in the drive thru and asked for an orange juice with my sandwich and the guy handed it to me upside down and wrapped in napkins. I thought it was really odd but didn't think much of it until I took it, turned it right side up and SPLOOSH!!! Orange juice all over my car.
See....that fucker knew that orange juice was leaky, hence why he handed it to me UPSIDE DOWN AND WRAPPED UP LIKE A CITRUS MUMMY! Real considerate asshole. I sat there in horror as I was all sticky and nasty from the OJ and he just stared at me. I told him to "don't just stand there get me some napkins, you knew it was leaky!" He looked pretty embarrassed. And no he wasn't foreign or mentally handicapped, he just didn't give a fuck.
I'm happy to say I don't eat fast food as regularly anymore.
