So I get my ten late (as per usual). I had rushed out of the house this morning so I didn’t grab my usual fruit to munch on my ten.
I need something to eat, so I decide to order a couple strawberry and cream pies, because they are delicious.
One of my coworkers is taking orders. There is one person in front of me. And another person off to the side waiting for his food.
He then proceeds to have a conversation with the customer waiting for his food. And takes two orders out into lobby to hand to people. Not people who have trouble moving or getting up. Perfectly able bodied people. I know this, because they are regulars so I’ve seen often when I am up front.
He takes FOREVER to actually take the customer’s order in front of me (thankfully another good natured regular), and then wanders off for another two minutes getting an different order out instead of taking my order, despite the fact he knows I’m on a ten.
It’s just…UGH. Do you’re goddamn job! Front counter can be annoying even if you’re running for yourself, but it’s not hard! You shouldn’t have to take three minutes getting out an order that’s three small items! If you’re waiting on grill, you then take more orders not dick around and do other things!
I want to be able to sit down and unwind a little on my ten. Not spending it waiting for most of it and having to eat my food at the last minute.
At that point I didn’t even care, and took a longer break once I FINALLY got my two pies.
It literally took my coworker almost six minutes to take two orders (one being my two pies, another being a single, small coffee), and hand out that food, plus two burritos and a hash brown.
And he had the audacity, to say to a manager who told him that he needed to hurry up, that “hey, I’m the fastest guy you have up front.”
A coworker in grill heard that as well, looked up to me to see me waiting still, and just slowly shook his head, sympathizing with me.
Thankfully the manager on duty didn’t say anything to me when I came back from my break. They knew perfectly well why.
