9:45 am - Signs, signs, everywhere a sign

What are you thoughts on the humurous signs some BKs have up? For example, the one that says people who like mayo are smooth operator types.

Anyone know what happened to the King? His crazy plastic face is gone. This is a good thing.

9:50 am - It's Been One of Those Nights....

C: Customer
M: Me (night shift manager/most awesomest being on the planet)

To begin with, I had a guy ask for a 2 Double Stackers, a 4-piece Chicken Tender, and a Mocha Joe. I told him the price, which what somewhere around $10. He immediately says:

C: No, NO! I want just the sandwich, not the meal!
M: *annoyed silence* (There was no meal entered) So, you want 2 Double Stackers, a 4 piece, and a Mocha Joe?
C: Yeah.
M: That'll be, $10.
C: I don't want 2 Double Stackers!
M: Do you mean that you want the Buck Double?
C: No, I want the DOUBLE STACKER! (Dumb ass friend chimes in, making it almost impossible to hear.)
M: Can only one of you speak?
C: Can I just come up to the window?
M: Please.
[guy pulls up to the window, and is, to my surprise, completely sober (being the night shift, I get a lot of drunk and or high people)]
[I read him back his order, and he STILL says he wants Double Stackers, but I give him Buck Doubles instead]

He didn't come back, complaining of a wrong order, so I'm assuming he was really just a dumb ass.

I had a lady pull up at 5:06 am (After I'd switched all the menus to the Breakfast side) and try to order a Double Whopper. I told her that we are not serving the item at the moment. Then, she asked me if we were serving breakfast with a stank ass attitude. I didn't speak for, like, 30 seconds. Was she serious? Could she not just look at the menu and see that there are only breakfast items available, and the items she requested aren't even on it?

The next time someone pulls up to the DT windows and parks 3 feet away, and has the audacity to not even try to meet me halfway to grab their food, is getting their shit thrown at them.

The next time someone, as I'm handing them their food, lifts a finger to make me wait so they can take food requests from someone on the other end, I'm telling them that, NO. YOU *CAN'T* HAVE ANOTHER/EXTRA ORDER OF ANYTHING! TAKE YOUR CRAP AND GO.

Also, my cook fell asleep in the bathroom. I had to make an order myself. It was my first time making a burger. I hope that lady didn't get a fucked up kids meal.

current mood: awake

There is no use for a subject.  I just got the internet back.  I'm an asst. manager now...and I thought my job had eaten my life before, how sadly wrong I was.

I used to work at a mall location, and once I was done with my management training, got moved to one of our busiest full service stores.  Apparently they thought I was that good.  It was hard to get used to, but I did.

Anyway, our GM decided he was going to hire some YOUNG kids...you know, the 14 and 15 year olds who really can't do much of anything due to the department of labor (one of them is his son, so he can basically run broiler, specials, anything except for CUTTING A SANDWICH IN HALF).  He promised he would never schedule them together.  BZZT! Wrong.  And I'm the one who gets to deal with 2 minor minors, 1 regular minor, and 1 person who knows drive thru on the day before Easter, with kids meals being 99 cents with a value meal purchase.  MORON.

It was a bad day, to say the least.

I'm sure I'll be back with more later.

11:18 pm - It's funny since I created this community

The first time I go to BK in since forever, I get bit by a mosquito three times on the neck. And a rude teenager yelled at us to go around his friend's car.

I said "Veggie whooper" instead of "BK Veggie burger" and I was served a whooper bun with whooper dressing.  No where on the menu was "Veggie Whooper" listed, nor could I find "Veggie Whooper" by doing a search at Burgerking.com.  I've been ordering BK veggie burgers by calling them "Veggie Whoopers" and have never had this happen.  I don't know why they didn't infer "veggie whooper" to mean "veggie burger", like everywhere else.

5:02 pm - To An Asswad

You came to our BK drive-thru, yelled "WHOPPER!" and drove off. How very funny and original you are. You are a pioneer of comedy, for you see, nobody has ever done that to us before, ever. Your originality is a beacon of hope in an otherwise ruined world.

2:42 pm - Fiction

Has Burger King ever appeared in popular fiction? Under the big names, like Stephen King, Dean Koontz or other recognizable names.

I've seen Pulp Fiction.

P.S. Yes, it's me the Mod. Wheee!

1:23 pm - it's just a bag

I will admit it is a dumb rule, but it's a rule nonetheless and I don't feel like getting bitched out by my RM so I follow it. And I am really sorry, dear customer if you do not want your coffee to come in a small bag when you order it at the drive-thru, but it's how it is done.

M- Me :)
O- Old Guy
S- Co-worker (who stayed calm, cool and collected thru the whole exchange)

I already rang him up and he was at the window paying. I go to hand him his coffee...

M- Here you go sir, have a ni-
O- (refusing to take the bag with the coffee in it) Take it out of the bag please?
M- I'm sorry, I can't.
O- Yes, you can. I do not want the bag in my car.
M- (points to the sign) It says here that all single hot drink orders must be placed in a small bag. It's the rule sir.
O- I am not taking it until you take it out of the bag!
M- And I am explaining to you that it *has* to come this way.
O- I do not want the bag in my car. It makes a mess. Just give me the coffee.
M- Sir, if you do not want the bag in your car, then take the coffee out and give me the bag back, I will be more than glad to throw it out for you.
O- Just give me the fucking coffee!!!
M- Look, this is my job. I think the rule is stupid, but I have to follow it. I will get into trouble over it, and since it's that dumb, I'd rather not-
O- Look, the customer is always right so give me my coffee without the bag!
M- The customer is always right except in this case when you are asking me to break rule-
O- I don't care if you get into trouble or get fired, I just want my coffee!
S- (walks over) What's going on over here?
O- This guy will not give me my coffee!
S- Okay (she grabs the bag from me and hands it to the guy) Here is your coffee
O- I don't want that fucking bag! I've been coming here for years they always give it to me without a bag!
S- Sir, it is just a bag! It's not the end of the world! There is no ue for that language!
O- I want my money back!
S- Certainly! (she goes thru the drawer and refunds his .53 cent Senior Coffee) Here you are- have a lovely day!
O- I am never coming back here. You just lost a customer! I'm going to the competiton across the street- they do not have idiots and niggars working there!
S- Okay, now if you ever do come back here- I am calling the fucking cops on you- you are not allowed to come back, have a nice day!
(She goes to slam the window but he puts his hand in the way and stops her)
O- I just told you I will not be coming back- and I am calling your office and having you fired for using that tone with me- I can treat you however I want and you *have* to be nice to me, I am the customer.
S- Sir, I just told you we do not want your business. We will not suffer from you not getting a senior coffee. Now, please leave, and have a nice day.

And he left and has not come back since (this was about a month ago), and we havent gotten any word on him calling the office.

Recap: Burger King Specialty Master

We get all kinds at our store. It's a pitfall of being in a decently-sized city in the middle of farm country, right next to our largest competitor and on the same highway as nearly every other place in town.

Naturally, I get some memorable ones.

1: 'I'll have a number whatever-that-is'Collapse )

2: Do you need a map to the window?Collapse )

3: When have we ever had it?Collapse )

4: The perils of farm countryCollapse )

5: Cheese is offensiveCollapse )

6: Return of the Mighty Mighty AsswadsCollapse )

And that's all of that. I've probably forgotten more stories than I'll ever tell, but I know I can't be the only one dealing with these experiences.

1:46 pm - better and better
serf75 yesterday I go in and find out that one of the asst managers boyfriends hogtied (throat, hands and feet)his 5 year old stepniece while he was supposed to be babysitting some kids. he was sent to jail($25000 bond) for child abuse.

11:50 am - bkslave
serf75 I have worked at a BK in Wilmington,NC (805 s college rd location) since Sept. last year. Even if half or all of this guys story is false,I can personally testify that a lot WORSE has gone on in my store. One asst manager was let go for hitting on underage girls. He even wrote a nasty letter to one girl ( which we all got to read)which was what got him fired. One of the morning crew doesn't have any teeth(rotted).There is rampant stealing and illegal activity not to mention the often unsanitary conditions. I have worked with 3 people that are now currently in jail. Not to mention the ones on probation or parole( one guy was involved in a drug related homicide),who usually get high or come in high. The pervert asst manager also got pepper sprayed while in the store by an ex-underage girlfriend. these are just some of the highlights( ALL TRUE) that I have witnessed firsthand during my time with the king.

Come by and see me if you dont believe me. Ask for wesley

10:21 am - Scary Commercials

The description for this group mentioned that we could post comments about how scary the commercials are... I saw this video as the most relevant comment that one could make on the subject:


Now the world will finally understand why I'm terrified of The King

10:41 am - Stupid BK Dream

I had a dream I stopped by a Burger King, which was a converted Subway. And all the employees lived in the back. And the customers were extras from 'Deliverance'. Some days I wish I knew why my brain dreamnt these things.

Job recap: Burger King Specialty Master

Got to work on Wednesday in less-than-perfect spirits. That's normal for me - I tire of work. Not twenty minutes into my shift, an old woman pulls up to our drive-through speaker and...

"Do you have buffalo wing salads?"

Now, where people get some of their ideas as to what we have is beyond me. I know some of the things they ask for are things we used to have, some are things other stores have, and some are just... inexplicable. (At least it helps to cheer me up.) But no, we don't. So, wasting no time in confounding us further, she asks...

"How much are your potato bowls?"

...Ibuhguhwhuuuuuhh? Oh, I get it - she thinks we're KFC because, you know, KFC is NEXT DOOR. In plain sight.

That's what sucks about our location - we're situated between a KFC and a McD's. Whether we get these confused people because they're just flustered, or if they're honestly too simple to notice the difference, I'm not sure. All I know is that we don't have anything made out of potatoes except the fries, and I'm not even too sure about those.

Job recap: BK kitchen person - Master of Specialty Board

Oh what fun I've been having. Customers are making my life miserable. And why is that, you ask?

Because they're idiots and cockmonglers.

Some choice examples of cockmonglery:

The woman who, after hearing our automated question about our Halloween Treat Sheets (8 bucks worth of stuff for $1), asked in the bitchiest tone possible, "How long are you going to keep asking me that?"
The assflap who comes by pretty much every day, orders a sandwich and a drink, and adds re the drink, in the most annoyingly superior tone, "and I'm a senior". Order a freakin' SENIOR DRINK, then.
The guy who, after being asked the Treat Sheet question, said, "I have no idea what you're talking about." Gee, that reflects worse upon you than us, you know.

And idiots? Oh, today, there were many. See, we ran completely out of Original Chicken patties before I came to work today. Our general manager, in a fit of brilliance, decided to suggest substituting Tendercrisp for OC in all cases, even in the case of the Italian Chicken Sandwich. Now, for those unaware, a Tendercrisp takes SIX MINUTES to make. Six minutes from cooler to warming pan. Six minutes we don't have when there's a line. And using twice as many makes things worse.

But thw worst part was one woman who, after ordering an Italian chicken and being told we had no Original Chicken, proceeded to order a #9.

An Original Chicken sandwich.


But it's all worth it to get entertaining customers. The best example of entertaining customers? Some older woman who came by last Sunday (I think it was Sunday) and ordered, and I quote, "A Jr. Whopper with no sour cream."

We don't even have sour cream anywhere in our store. Anywhere. I assumed she meant "no mayo", so I left the mayo off. And she didn't come back.

I must be adept at reading the minds of crazy old people who, to paraphrase Professor Membrane, like to order INSANE THINGS!
