Fast food workers get no respect

By Alice Liles
Alice’s note: This story first appeared in my blog The Bright Lights of Muleshoe on January 20, 2010. What with the frantic Christmas shopping season just coming to a close, I’ll bet there might have been more than one time you and your family had a meal at a fast-food chain on one of those shopping sprees. And it could be that one of those visits included an order gone wrong or patience on one or both sides of the counter being in short supply. So I thought this story might be food for thought, no pun intended, for those of you who did some eating out during the holidays.

We walked into a fast food chain over the weekend to be greeted by a pleasant hello from the young woman behind the counter. I placed my order for a small cheeseburger, mustard and mayonnaise, no ketchup. I knew I was in trouble when she had to ask her supervisor a question, and when she returned to the register, she had to ask me again what I wanted. She punched around on her register/computer screen a few times.
“You wanted all the vegetables, right?”
“Right.” Vegetables had not been mentioned up until then. “I don’t want any ketchup.”
“Oh, right.”
