As someone who has worked in the food industry, I agree, it sucks to work until 2 am (or later). HOWEVER, if the store closes at 2 am, IT MEANS 2 AM, not 1:45 because the employees are being whiny little bitches. Hell, I have even served people after my restaurant was technically closed in the past because I recognized that good customer service=more repeat business=more hours and more money for me. Plus, what if you were the hungry customer desperately looking for a place to eat at 1:45 am? Wouldn't you be pissed to find the restaurant closed 15 minutes early because some punk ass employee just HAD to get home at EXACTLY 2 am? When you work a closing shift in a restaurant, EXPECT to be there much later than closing time and consider yourself LUCKY if you do get to leave exactly when the restaurant closes. That's how the industry works. Suck it up and do your fucking job or find another one. This is the most pathetic FML I've ever seen.

well this whole FML depends on what fast food restaurant you work at...I mean if you work at like taco bell then it really isn't too bad...cuz your just making tacos and stuff.

Op, youre dumb. You could have easily kicked out your boss for being under the influence, since most likely they will return the order in the morning after the hangover. Also if he was being unruly, you have the right to refuse service.

this would be more of an FML if the guy woulda came in, made a huge order then said "oh crap i forgot my wallet" or, after the order has ben made already, "you know what? i jus remembered i have Chipotle at home waiting for me... cancel that order." tht would be a fml. OP be lucky u have a job.. i jus got fired today lol

you would have turned away customers ten minutes before you close?? If I was one of those customers I would have filed a complaint. I work at a restaurant so I know how much it sucks, but if your sign says you are open and your door is unlocked you can't be turning down customers. ydi for being a crappy employee

Sorry OP.. I'm a server and when people walk in 5 min till close piss me off more than anything else. One, you can't finish your duties till the assholes leave. Two, the kitchen is more than likely gonna cook their entree's in a way to get them out quick.. which means their food isn't gonna be great. And three, the tip is definitely NOT worth it. Dealing with the general public is a joke. Everyone needs to at least wait tables for 6 months of their lives to appreciate what we do and go thru. And people. always tip your server! Whn you don't, they still tip out on your meal. So they're basically paying YOU to eat there!

They would still have a job and get paid if that person "didn't" show up right before their place of work closed. I'd bitch aliitle. Yes it's part of their job but it's rude of people to not respect workers. Hey I want to go home too.

If you want to go home, you should work in a different industry. It has nothing to do with respecting workers and everything to do with expecting an establishment to function during it's open hours. All of it's open hours, not just the ones convenient for the employees.

81, organizedchaos is exactly right. There are many people who can't leave the industry they work in because they are not qualified for any other right now. I am stuck working as a gas station attendant, and I've been forced to stay late because of customers as well. It's frustrating because I can't go anywhere else with the economy as terrible as it is, and I'm working toward a bachelor's degree now. Luckily, I'm not going to get fired, since my grandma runs and owns the gas station I'm working at, so I try to close when it gets close to closing time and no one else is in. Still, that's meant an extra half hour at work for me sometimes.

No, that's not gay. Being gay means having a sexual attraction to a person of the same sex, not a desire to contaminate their food. Doing so (contaminating food, not being gay) is a crime, BTW.
