    McDonalds sucks late at night.

    Hungry at 3 AM? Too bad, they're converting to the breakfast menu.

    Jack in the Box, however, serves everything on their menu 24/7. And they don't act like its an inconvenience to do their job.

    if you're buying food from a mcdonalds at 3:00 am you should be happy that the servers aren't actively trying to murder you

    "Oh, I'm sorry, I thought this was a place where I could get something in my belly. I didn't realize the company just pays you to sit there and scowl at potential customers."

    I'm often heading home at 3 AM and need something in my tummy for the trip. It's not like 3 AM rolls around and I head out for a burger.

    if someone is working an all-night shift at mcdonalds they do not give even the slightest of fucks about you or likely anything aside from surviving through their shift and going home

    someone working in a mcdonalds at 3am is to be pitied and someone getting pissy at mcdonalds staff at 3am is to be shunned

    I have never once gotten pissy at a food service worker at 3 AM. I save my ire for the Internet.

    look I asked for extra mayonnaise and there is very clearly only an average amount of mayonnaise on the 3rd burger and I am not leaving until I have a full refund and an apology from both your manager and the employee responsible

    This happened to me as I was visiting a friend's town -- Katrina told me to buy one of her dress designs and it became pointedly obvious that they were in cahoots.

    Thank you if you came out to San Japan! It was a great show and I remembered the Alamo as hard as I could and I THINK I got first place!

    Late night shifts at Walmart were probably really tame compared to what late night fast food employees get.

    But they were still awful.

    If I never work serving anyone food ever again, it'll be too soon.

    It was scary how many regulars you'd get who only came after 10 pm

    I mean, usually they were nice enough

    Usually

    Once I was on a register which was really outdated and just need to be replaced

    Part of that was that there was a massive space between two of the metal components, but it was just small enough that you couldn't stick your hand in

    This was the cigarette register, so I'm checking people's ID's and stuff, like you should

    A lady comes up and hands me her ID. It's one of the paper ones, because she's lost hers and is getting it replaced. I picked it up, looked at it, and then when I went to give it back to her, my fingers slipped, and it fell neatly into that space. I did everything I could to try and fish it out, apologizing profusely the entire time, but I just couldn't get at it. She told me "Oh, don't worry about" and then immediately turned around and yelled "HEY, THIS GUY JUST DROPPED MY ID" pointing at me

    I was just about ready to quit right then.

    I work in a cafe near a smallish beach in sydney. I am honestly one of the luckiest people in existence when it comes to customers not being horrible to me. It really hasn't happened much at all in the 8 or 9 months I've been working there.

    Summers starting up again, and it'll get hectic as balls soon, but for the most part, the customers remain ok. There are just more of them.

    This for me was always the worst thing about customers, how frequently they get mad or irritated or even enraged when you ask them questions you are required to ask, even if those questions are designed to help them.

    Just a few days ago I was in McDonald's. And this guy ( and then his wife) threw a fit over frech fries.
    The servers were all teenagers and they were clearly understaffed.

    I really wish I had recorded it or something.

    A couple days ago, I served two chicken sandwiches and kid's burger to a family.

    A few moments pass, then the father points to the kid's burger and asks me what I just served him.

    "It's...a burger," I reply, confused by the question.

    "But what is that?" he asks, pointing to the patty.

    "Beef."

    The father explains to me that they don't eat beef.

    Apparently, when he asked what came on a kid's burger and I told him it just came plain with cheese, he thought I meant it only came with, like, cheese and a bun.

    It did not occur to him that a burger comes with a beef patty.

    Because we can't talk back to them.

    So they can say literally anything they want and then probably get rewarded for it.

    And in a place like where I work, even though we're still kinda fast food, we're professional enough that I've never seen anyone take their revenge on someone's food.

    In my experience it feels like we are just to low for those people to even register. It doesn't occur to them that they are talking to a person being paid very little to work really hard make you happy. It doesn't matter if they verbally abuse someone to tears because they are the wait staff, not people.

    There were some people that totally made me not hate my job and made me want to help them.

    Generally elderly people.

    Like this one 60 year old guy that was covered in tattoos came in the other and he just talked to me about his tattoos and my tattoos for awhile and that was rad as shit.

    Basically "the customer is always right!" has gone from a cute little adage to sell people things to something people genuinely believe, that if they aren't getting what they think they deserve, by God, that must be the fault of the stupid kid standing in front of me.

    Especially working at a place like Walmart, where you would overhear parents telling their children to study hard, lest they become like us.

    For a not-insignificant number of people, food servers don't even seem to register as human beings.

    They don't listen to you, they don't bother trying to communicate clearly with you, and they sure as hell don't care that you can't do literally every job that needs to get done instantaneously.

    You are a robot and you are damn well gonna get treated like one.

    Thankfully, there seem to be an equal number of people who do treat you like a fellow human, so it tends to balance out.

    I've found the opposite to be true. The relatively old seem to be impatient, selfish and completely unable to cut people any slack.

    Whereas only like twice have I been yelled at over something petty by a twenty something.

    I once had someone tell me we should be put against the wall and shot because we ran out of normal fries at the very end of a day where we were not at all prepared for the amount of business we got (we still had every other side on our menu).

    Like, he was clearly joking.

    But I found the joke to be in exceptionally poor taste.

    Funnily enough, getting a job in the cafe helped me get over some heavy depression, and gave me back my sense of self-worth. Maybe it's because I'm a waiter, and I have to go up to people's tables and take their orders and I'm more directly responsible for people having a pleasant time.

    If someone asks me for something that isn't out on the sales floor 1 of 2 things generally happen.

    If you are not an ass I will try my damnedest to try to find you that thing.

    If you are an ass I will walk into the back and stand there for awhile and come back and tell you we don't have your thing.

    Though, honestly, if I could make a wish to a genie to make all customers do one thing all the time, it would be to actually read the menu.

    Why are you asking me what comes on this burger?

    The entire topping list is right underneath the name.
