I work at mcdonalds. Now as an employee of this great establishment I see stupid everyday whether it be from fellow coworkers or from customers. This however, took the cake.

me: Hi, how can I help you today?
idiot: I need a cheeseburger happy meal, and a chicken selects meal.
me: would you like the 3 or 5 piece chicken selects meal?
idiot: how many come in the 5 piece?

I was so dumbfounded that I couldn't answer. She ended up ordering the three piece meal because the five piece had too many in it.

costuemrs Costumers, eh? You work at a McDonald's near a theatre?

Psst! It's 'customers', before you get too badly snarked.

And it should also be "too many", not "to many".

There's been this thing, ALL over the internet, proving that people can still read words if all the letters are mixed up (except the first and last).



That doesn't work if all the letters aren't right. Costumers=/=Customers

Sorry it was just a typo....all fixed now
9th-Dec-2006 04:33 am (UTC) - sorry...
Really? Is that why it still says "costumers"?

Hint:

Costumers means people who dress up in costumes.

Customers buy things at places that sell things.

Sorry, I'm feeling extra snarky tonight. Please continue to be a good sport. =)

The sad part is, I understood that very easily. I guess it all depends on the way you read things. I skim through most words. Which is also the reason I have to re-read a lot of things.

Oddly enough, I actually got it pretty much right away.

as a fellow former McDonalds employee, how about the one where the customer comes up and asks, completely seriously, "What kind of fruit is in the apple pie? And in the cherry?" I could possibly have understood if it had been "What variety of apples/cherries are in the pies?" but "What kind of fruit?" Thankfully I was pregnant enough that my doctor made me quit soon after that.

idiot: how many come in the 5 piece?

Three and a half, obviously!

There's less if we're using metric chicken, but that was yesterday.

This comment makes me laugh. A lot.

You know, if they allowed employees to wear something other than a mcuniform, I'd work at such a McDonald's.

It's like Tim Allen in the Santa Claus.

Tim: You know how to dial 9-1-1, right?
Kid: ...You dial 911.

I worked at McDonalds this summer and I completely sympathize. One day I was on DT and the lady asked if we had chocolate ice cream. Having only vanilla, I was compelled to answer to that effect, and she said, "Okay, do you have twist, then?"

I'm so glad I quit, that was the most soul-crushing job I will ever have.
