The following was emailed to me by my friends Brian and Becky. I am horrified and disgusted by what it said, and it’s more or less proof that fast food workers WILL do what they can to fuck you over. Brian and Becky were kind enough to give me permission to repost this, so read on…
Becky had a nasty little experience at the McDonalds on 4803 W 1960 this afternoon, and we felt that all of you who live in the area or may pass by should know about it.
Becky went through the drive-through lane, ordered, and when she moved forward to pay at the first window they realized that her order was incorrect, and the cashier told her to pull forward to the next window to pay. She pulled forward, gave her card to the girl, and her drinks were given to herâ€¦the drinks were incorrect and Becky realized that her order was completely messed up â€“ no problemâ€¦right? She and the cashier/drink girl discussed it and still she couldnâ€™t fix it, and proceeded to charge her for an extra drink (which Becky never got in the end). After Becky figured it was resolved she noticed that the girl still had her credit card. Becky asked for her card back and the girl DENIED EVEN HAVING IT. Becky and the girl argued about it for a minute until Becky actually pulled up a bit, got herself and the girls out of the car and went into the establishment. She asked to see the manager and demanded her card back, which was finally done without apology. Next Becky began to tell the manager about the problemsâ€¦and when she looked over at the girl who had given her problems she saw the girl SPIT INTO A DRINK â€“ A DRINK THAT WAS GOING TO BECKY!
Becky told the manager what she saw and all of a sudden the manager was â€œno compredoâ€¦no Englishâ€¦â€
She tried to argueâ€¦tried to get her money backâ€¦tried to give the food back but everyone in the store started acting like they didn’t speak English and the ones that were OBVIOUSLY English speakers refused to speak to her.
Needless to say, she threw the food out immediately and never received a penny back.
Normally little problems happen at this McDonaldsâ€¦every time we go there weâ€™ll have a problem with the toys or the size of a drink or a simple mess up and we donâ€™t really fuss much, but this time itâ€™s gone WAY too far.
I know that some might think it silly, but I really encourage each and every one of you to avoid this restaurant and let others know about it so they can help. Weâ€™ve already contacted (via email) the corporate office with the complaint.
We just thought everyone should know â€“ seems that the consequence for requiring adequate service at this McDonalds is spit in your foodâ€¦but you decideâ€¦
My personal advice for people if you encounter this situation? Don’t just threaten to contact McDonald’s corporate. Contact the police… because not only were they trying to steal Becky’s credit card, tampering with food as was described is actually a felony. Still, this helps vindicate why I don’t go to many fast food places anymore…
