Had a bit of a bad weekend this week. First of all yesterday a man asked me to change him some change so I was like okay then and gave him a tenner then he was like can I swap these two tenners for a twenty so I said sure (I checked them first to make sure they were real). Next thing I know hes stood there can I have the twenty then when I'd already given it to him... Nice try matey my co worker saw me give it you and it was the only one in the till! Then saw him try it in another shop
And today someone asked for a nail brush so I showed them and their response was that's a scrubbing brush and she started having a go at me because nail Brushes should be smaller than that. Well sorry I wasn't the one who nipped to Taiwan and told them to make it that size just to annoy you.
But then had a total gem today as well saying your going to go far in life, people like this actually make me enjoy going to work <3

I know its a late quote but I know what you mean!

Have you ever had people hand over the voucher assuming it had the cash value of £1.99. Luckily that hasn't happened for ages to me.
My new rant is about helping customers cos I'm too nice. Some woman asked for a tea with a loyalty coffee voucher and wanted to pay for a latte as well, instead I put the latte through for free, charged her for a tea, saving her 50p. "Oh why's it that much?" I explained what I'd done and she was just like "Oh right" no thanks
It's the same when some customers order and you tell them if they bought what they just ordered as a happy meal it'd be x amount cheaper but they decline. Same with breakfast when you tell people that it's actually cheaper to buy a meal than a muffin and a coffee plus they'll get a hash brown. Most people are quite chuffed at me helping them save money but some people can be pretty rude about it. Makes no sense that people would pay more to have less food. Even if they didn't want the hash brown they could still save money ordering the meal and just asking me not to give them it.
One of my very first customers on the drive through window ordered something like;
"oh can I have a fries, a big mac burger *I ask would you like a meal instead* oh no thanks just the burger and fries. The kid will have a cheeseburger too, and what are you having Jen? Ok a quarter pounder too and fries with that. Hey kid, do you want fries? Yea ok add a children's fries too. *hears a voice from the woman, "we should probably get some drinks"... LE SIGH!*. Ok ill have a regular coke, the kid will have a coke and a coffee please...
So I put it through like this; (rough prices in brackets)
medium fries (£1)
big mac burger (£3)
quarter pounder (£3)
medium fries (£1)
small fries (80p)
medium coke (£1)
small coke (80p)
big mac EVM + coke (£3.50)
Quarter EVM + coffee (£3.50)
happy meal + coke (£2)
saves about £3.60
*hey ste, what the **** are you doing up on that window?!*
Turns out the people on the front had the order ready and got confused after my voids. Saved the customer £3.60 but as usual they were completely unaware as to how much **** I caused within the kitchen
