Today, while working at McDonald's a car full of obnoxious teens came through. They had made a $30 order, and handed me a tin of small change, claiming that on a McDonald's ad they saw that we, employees, liked counting change. I had to count out $30 in spare change during a rush period at work. FML
you should have said "fuck you, and come back with cash"...or, you should have gotten your manager to say that instead...i've done that as a manager because bringing in a tin of uncounted change and expecting the clerk to count it for you is just plain rude. it holds up the line behind you and makes everyone unhappy.
The OP does NOT deserve that shit just because they work at a job you don't think is glamorous. Get over your fucking selves. Actually the OP should be praised for having the patience to work at a job like that. Public service jobs like that are the HARDEST ones out there, and people should have a lot more respect for those who do it. Numbers 6 and 14, and anyone else who thinks someone "deserves" to be treated horribly because they work at a job like McDonald's, you make me fucking sick. I hope all your food and drink gets spit in when you treat people that way at their job. At least these people are working hard, doing what they have to do to get by. Grow the fuck up and quit judging them.
Now to the OP... You didn't HAVE to count that money did you? Some managers would tell brats like that to quit wasting time and come back when they had real money. A couple dollars is one thing, but 30 is ridiculous. And their comment is what pushed it over the line. If I were you, I definitely would've told the manager so they could deal with it. Restaurants have a right to refuse service to anyone, so if they're causing problems like that - for you and the other customers who were waiting behind them - the store would've had every right to tell them to leave. Good luck in the future, hope you can find something better.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
