I'm Not Taking Their Bullshit Anymore!
« on: February 10, 2011, 08:53:20 PM »
The rude people at Drive Thrus.

I drive up to the speaker at a Sonic drive thru, here's what happens.

Speaker- "garbled garbled garbled order?"

Me- (I assume she sais can I take your order) "I would a Foot long Coney with Mustard and onions and medium tots with cheese."

Speaker - silence for 15 seconds.

Me- "Hello?"

Speaker - "Yesss?"

Me- "did you get that?"

Speaker- garble, garble garble.

Me- "I cant hear you!"

Speaker - "I cant hear you!" (the rude tone starts)

Me - "What do you want me to do?"

Speaker - "I want you to speak LOUDER and garble, garble garble"

Me- "I want you to speak english and stop clipping your mic cause your cutting yourself off."

Silence for another 20 or so seconds. We are at a stand off and Im not budging.

Speaker - "UH HELLO! what did you want?"

Me- "I want your manager now."

Speaker - Garble Garble Garble.

Me- "what?"

Speaker - "Garble, garble drive up."

Me- "No, Im not moving till you put your manager on this speaker"

Silence for 20 seconds

Manager on speaker - "Can I help you?" (very clearly)

Me- "Oh, so this things does work. I would like a Foot long Coney with mustard and onions and med tots with cheese. AND I want YOU not her to bring me my order and the ph# to your corporate office when I drive around."

Manager on speaker - "that will be $5.81 please drive around."

I get around to the window and talk to the manager (who is no help) while I'm being laughed at by the cook (by this time I am sure there is spit in my hotdog). I call corporate and relay the story to them. Their solution is to send me free coupons out, after I specifically told them I would never be back to Sonic. ( I just went back after a year's absence because they previoulsy pissed me off).

I'm tired of this abuse I get in the drive thrus of the world. It's not just Sonic it's all the fast food places. If they are not forgetting to put the fries in the bag or the Mayo on the burger then it's some rude twit at the speaker or window. They act like I am bothering them by ordering a burger from THEIR restaurant.

What really send me into orbit is when they forget to put something in the bag and you call them when you get home and they say "Ok, well come back up here and we will give it to you". Right. That's what I want to do, drive back and forth to McDonalds all night long.

One time I  ordered a chicken sandwich from McDonalds when I was on the highway, I unwrapped the sandwhich and there is bread and lettuce but NO FUCKIN CHICKEN! Brilliant! Who forgets to put chicken on a chicken sandwhich? So of course when I call them they tell me to come back but by this time I'm already 15 miles down the highway.

I'm not taking their bullshit anymore. I am calling corporate every single time I get miffed off at a drive thru. Mc Donalds, Burger King, Taco Bell...whoever. Bitches.

PS- they forgot to put mustard and Onions on my Coney.

You definitely got some extra protein on that coney.  Hopefully it was just spit. 

By the way, I went to Coney Island yesterday afternoon and had some of them delicious hot dogs from Nathan's (even though I've always preferred the ones from Gray's Papaya).

 I'm glad to hear we don't have all the dumb asses here in Ohio.  I went to a carryout today and my purchase was $6.36 and I handled the clerk $11.36 and she acted moritfied.  She kept trying to explain that the $10 bill was enough to pay for it.  I finally just told her to punch it into the register and I saw the big light bulb explode over her head and she asked me how I figured that out so quick.

I hate when they give you cold food or they will throw old fries back down to heat them up.  I've gotten to where I'll ask for fresh food and will tell them I don't mind waiting.  I did this at McDonald's.  I was told my chicken sandwich and fries were just made.  They were both cold and had obviously been sitting.  We try to only eat out on the weekends--sit down or fast food. 

Our Chinese take-out is awesome.  They never forget anything and it is always fresh and hot.  The lady who owns it knows my voice or number and already knows what we want when I call.  And, it isn't like we order there all the time.  If I forget to order the wonton soup or pot-stickers, she asks me whether I want them.

Good service is becoming extremely rare now days, at least around here anyway. I have to go out of the area most of the time if I want decent service (and decent food), lol. A tip for fresh fry's, order them without salt and and then get the packages of salt. They have to make them fresh as they put salt on right away usually.

Crimeny, I can't belive that you ate the hot dog (where is the vomit smiley?).

For excellent fast food window service you need to go to Chick-fil-a. They always get the order right, offer condiments and say "it will be my pleasure to see you at the window." If the line of cars gets long they have an employee with a headset come out into the parking lot and take your order.

I don't know it is the same elsewhere but at the McDonald's near my house the mornings are an informal senior men social hour. There are usually about 6-12 guys, age 50 +, who have their breakfast, read the newspaper and comment on the events of the day. The counter staff are older women who have work there for years, know everyone's order and called people by their name or "sweetie", "baby", etc. It is nice to see people socializing, even at a fast food restaurant-- kind of like a flower growing out of the concrete.

Have you ever noticed that no matter what you order (could be wonton soup only or a meal for eight) its always ready in 10 minutes?  I miss good Chinese food... here in this part of SC it does not exist.

of course they are great, they are way bigoted... lol

Here is the story that I read rescently.  D

http://news.change.org/stories/yes-chick-fil-a-says-we-explicitly-do-not-like-same-sex-couples

Bet Chick-fil-A wishes this month would end. Over the past few weeks, the restaurant chain's deep ties to the anti-gay movement have been exposed and uncovered by a number of activists, most notably Jeremy Hooper at Good As You. Whether it's Focus on the Family, the National Organization for Marriage, the Pennsylvania Family Institute, or Exodus International, Chick-fil-A ties run deep.

Of course, the President of Chick-fil-A wants gay people to share no hard feelings. The restaurant will gladly feed homosexuals gobs of chicken sandwiches, after all. But when it comes to marriage, Chick-fil-A believes strongly that same-sex couples just don't deserve equal rights.

As we wrote about a few weeks ago, Chick-fil-A's charitable arm, the WinShape Foundation, has been particularly active in the fight against marriage equality. They've hosted conferences with some of the leading opponents of gay marriage in this country. A higher up at WinShape has even praised the efforts of anti-gay activist David Blankenhorn for working against marriage equality, and for articulating a solid reason why American culture should reject same-sex couples.

Now comes some email correspondence that Good As You has shared on their blog, where the WinShape Foundation's Retreat Center -- a center run by the charitable arm of Chick-fil-A -- admits that they have a severe distaste for LGBT people.

The email correspondence goes a little something like this. Someone writes WinShape an easy question about whether their retreat center is open to LGBT people. WinShape's response:

"WinShape Retreat defines marriage from the Biblical standard as being between one man and one woman. Groups/Individuals are welcome who offer wholesome, educational conferences and programs that are compatible with Biblical values and WinShape's purpose," WinShape wrote back.

Kind of some corporate speak, right? So the activist wrote back: can you just give a clear-cut answer? And WinShape confirmed:

"We do not accept homosexual couples because of the statement in our contract."

And so it goes like this: Chick-fil-A is a restaurant where franchises frequently donate to anti-gay organizations like the Pennsylvania Family Institute, Focus on the Family and others. The restaurant's charitable arm, WinShape, holds conferences for opponents of gay marriage and praises their work. And this charitable arm's Retreat program puts a blanket ban on gay couples using their facilities, because they "do not accept homosexual couples."

Yet the President of Chick-fil-A still says that all people, including LGBT people, are treated with respect by the restaurant? Huh, what a funny definition of respect.

Meanwhile, check this story out. So the Human Rights Campaign's NOMExposed project tried to submit an equality-minded video to the Ruth Institute's "Reel Love Video Challenge." The Ruth Institute is an affiliate of the National Organization for Marriage, and they're running a contest where folks can submit videos talking about what love means. The video below was originally accepted, but then promptly booted out of the project once the Ruth Institute became aware that it actually championed equality for same-sex couples.

Here's the kicker: the Ruth Institute's "Reel Love Video Challenge" has a tie-in to Chick-fil-A's WinShape Foundation. Wouldn't it be nice to hear why the Ruth Institute and the WinShape Foundation find the below video so offensive? After all, what is love if it isn't equal?

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Willy, maybe you could always take a packed lunch with you.

Or you could also vent like I do in that passive aggressive way I enjoy, and pee all over the restroom.  Baby changing facilities are a favourite target.

I dont go to Chik-Fil-A, not necessarily because of their political stance, etc.. but merely because I dont like their sandwhiches (they are dry).

McDonalds has gotten better. Their employees seem to half way understand the concept of "getting the order correct". Now they even put a little sticker on the bag that says "Your order was double checked". At least they went through the trouble of ordering stickers. With that being said their service at the inside counter is hideous. It's like a battle everytime you step up to their counter to order. I love it when you walk up and they just stare at you (don't Social mores dictate that they should at least say hello). More times than not they can complete an entire order taking process without saying a word. No "hello", no "Thank you". Sheesh even a "Kiss my bunghole" from them would be welcome.

My experience is that Burger King is tops in drive thru service. I've never gotten a chicken sandwhich without the chicken from them. So in this day and age that ranks as an A++. Also more times than not If I go inside there is a manager working the front, sometimes even working the register.

I've come to accept the little screw-ups in drive thrus. Missing Mayo, fries turned upside down (its like they just scooped the fries into the bag and then threw an empty fry carton on top). It's almost become a game to see what they forgot. If I have someone with me we take bets on what the screw up will be. Mayo always has even odds.

Oh and the ketchup situation.  Don't even get me started on that one. Suffice to say it is quickly becoming a valubale commodity on the world market because they will only serve it to you 1 ml at a time.

We can put a man on the moon...but we cant get Mayo on our burger or Chicken on our chicken sandwhich in drive thrus.

Yes, but it's the last of my vices, It's all I have left. I dont snort ounces of cocaine daily anymore, I dont drink (much) anymore, And I gave up hooking behind the bus station. Must I give up my fast food and join a nunnery now?

Not when the employees spit/cum on them they're not!

I haven't been to a drive-thru in over twenty years. McDonalds didn't even manage to infiltrate the Rock until about ten years ago and while they have a drive-thru, I've never used it nor have I ever eaten there.

The only other internationally-known fast food joint we have here on the Rock is KFC and they only arrived about five years ago. The Manx are staunchly opposed to American fast food places - and I guess it shows.

I really don't miss any of them. I occasionally get an American fast food fix once a year or so when I'm over in Liverpool at my quarterly clinic appointments.

I worked at Arby's when I was in high school and I could just about demolish one of their roast beef sandwiches right about now. Are Arby's still going?

Oh man there is nothing like an Arby's Roast Beef Sandwich with Arbys sauce on it...Yum.  Yes, eating fast food every day can kill you.  But like anything else, moderation is the key.  I usually get fast food on average about once a month.  Once in a great while there is nothing like a McDonalds cheeseburger and fries.

When I lived in Chicago I loved the fact that I never had to lower myself to eat at those fast food restaurants , instead I could eat the same crap cooked at a privately owned mom and pop .

I love Taco Bell and almost every other fast food place . Its true I did my first shot of insulin behind a KFC .

Will,

All this fervor over a cheese coney from Sonic?  This is precisely why I avoid drive-thrus specifically, and fast food places in general.  Too many mistakes, and bad quality food.  Though I'll admit to having eaten a few toaster sandwiches from Sonic.   ;)

You may be interested in knowing that a Sonic opened in Liberty Hill about 2 years ago. You would have thought it was the opening of Taj Mahal.  Traffic was backed up for about a mile on Highway 29, because they were giving away free drinks.  Being small town Texas, of course, the line was full of 4-wheel drive pick-up trucks and duallies. 

When it's 100 degrees outside in the summer, nothing beats a Grape Slush from Sonic.

Cheers,

Henry

Wimpy's has a reputation for being pretty skanky. They have the franchise at some of the motorway rest stops run by "RoadChef" where they also have a petrol station and a shop with hugely over-priced trinkets and maps. The first and only time I ate at a Wimpy's was at a motorway stop - and I'd rather go hungry than do that again.

That bender thing is a fat pork sausage with slices along one side so you can curl bend it into the bun.


PS - No Wimpy's on the Rock either.

Now that's my down fall! Arby's Beef N Cheddar with a side of potato cakes. May have to go take a spin through their drive thru tonight.

@Buckmark - That's funny about the Sonic in Liberty Hill. Gee when I lived there all we had was the pizzaria  across the highway down from the bank. I only went there for a burger if I was real desperate. I usually just imported burgers from the Whataburger in Leander.
