Then, maybe I'd be spared a lot of headaches, as nobody seems to notice a few basic things they do that REALLY annoy every employee they cross. In case you are one of these clueless people, I've compiled a list of the few more memorable ones. - Don't send your kids in to pay. They don't know what they're doing. They'll screw it up. It's not cute. It's just annoying. I saw a mom once send her kid in to pay when we had a counter twice as tall as the kid. After almost half an hour, she came in to see what was taking so long and stormed out in a huff because her pizza was cold and it was ALL OUR FAULT BECAUSE WE SUCKED! Don't be this woman. - If you want it done right, watch it being done. If you leave while something is being done for you, I will assume that you want it done exactly as everyone else has it done. If you give me a long list of instructions and don't stick around to make sure I remember it, I'll probably get it wrong. I don't have a photographic memory. Retail workers don't get one implanted. Learn to see things through. - If you're not a very young and attractive person of the opposite sex than the person who's serving you, making 'cute' remarks will only get them annoyed. Friendly is one thing, but we've heard it all. You don't get it for free if it doesn't scan. I know what the weather is like outside. Friendly is one thing. Annoying is another. - There's one person in every workplace that doesn't care. This is not indicative of the entire staff, just this one person. Don't take it out on me. If you ask, I'll be happy to take it out on them. I hate them, too. - We run out of things. We don't have a matter replicator in the back. If it's anyone's fault, it's my boss's, as he does the ordering. Go yell at him or get over it. - Our primary purpose is not to make you happy. Our primary purpose is to make money. If these two goals become mutually exclusive, we'll take the money every time. Get over yourself. - If you really want us to change something that bad, talk to somebody who actually matters. I don't carry any weight, and if I did what you wanted, I'd probably be fired. We can't change to conform to your desires at the drop of a hat. - We are not crooks by nature. In fact, you're more likely to be a crook than me. If you come up with a discrepancy, check again. It's more likely your fault than ours. - Don't make a mess just because somebody gets paid to clean it up. I am that person, and I get paid to do other things, which only include cleanup when some jackass makes a mess. - *Does not apply anyplace food is cooked to order (rare, medium, etc.)* Your food is not over/undercooked. Every piece of [insert food] we cooked today was cooked in the same oven/fryer/grill for the same amount of time at the same temperature. We know the machine works, since you're the only person who has complained. This means that either you just wanted it cooked differently, meaning you shouldn't have gone for fast food, or you're just being snippy to try to get something for nothing. Either way, get over yourself. This is all I can think of. Feel free to add. Note: I'm not really very grumpy right now. I just thought this would be a bit amusing, and on some days, I actually am grumpy at some of these things.
