What in the hell is with the people who run fast food???
I started thinking about how friggin tight that fast food places are with condoms condiments.
Why would I be thinking of such a frivolous and tedious thing?
Well, today I wandered around this huge mecca that is Oak Ridge, Tennessee in a quest to forage something for lunch.
I was a tad early and was actually out during lunch rush, so every place on my route was totally jam packed and not worth the wait.
I ended up at Chick-Fil-A (one of my most favoritest places and a close runner up to Taco Hell).
Well, I ordered my regular. Kids Chicken Nugget Meal w/a Large Diet Coke.
This renders just enough deep fried goodness to get me through until I go home and make dinner for the ingrates family.
Anyhoo. I know that I’m demanding and that it’s alot to ask, but WHY OH WHY must I beg for that one extra little container of BBQ sauce?
Is it fucking gold?
I. Think. Not.
I dip my yummy criss-cross fries in it. I dip the little deep-fried nuggets in it. Hell, I’d dip my straw in it and drink it.
I LIKE CONDIMENTS.
But, the old broad who is the guardian of the sauce packets was hoarding them.
Old Broad: “Any sauces today?”
Me: “Extra BBQ, please.” (Note I was being sweet. I said PLEASE).
Old Broad threw 2 in my bag of deep fried goodness and turned around to walk away.
Me: “Ma’am? Does 2 mean you gave me one extra?”
Old Broad: “Our policy is 2 sauces for a kids meal.” She smiled sweetly.
Me: “Then can I have 2 more?”
Old Broad: Slings one more in the bag with an annoyed look on her face.
Me: Standing there staring at her. At this point it was principle.
Old Broad: Slung one more in the bag and asked, “Would you like a manager?”
Me: “No. You finally gave me my sauce. Have a great desert day.”
Then I started thinking (dangerous). Taco Hell is greedy, too. This is true, straight from a manager at Taco Hell… “It’s our policy to give 1 packet of mild, hot or fire sauce per item unless a customer specifically asks for more.”
WTF is up with fast food policies????
As much as they charge for a fucking taco nowdays, I should be able to have a case of that shit with every order as our orders are usually huge due to the kids and all of their friends.
Anyways, for spite, after going through drive through and getting an ungodly amount of crap asked for lots of sauce. I’m talking like 30 tacos and 15 burritos and other random items. The dude gave us 10 packets. He counted them out. Prick.
Did I ask for extra? Yes.
Did I get extra? Fuck no.
So, I decided to be a total bitch (surprising, eh?).
I parked the car. Emptied one of the small bags into one of the other bags. I took the freshly emptied bag and walked into the Taco Hell lobby. I grabbed every pack of mild sauce that I could shove into that bag and walked out. The kid at the counter just stood there with his mouth open.So now. At least when I go to Taco Hell, we don’t have to ask for any sauce at all.
Well, until we run out.
Other places that are tightwads:
Fazolis: tight with parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper.
Booger King: totally tight with ketchup.
Harvest Buffet: totally tight with the fortune cookies… the dicks.
Ever have any fast food annoyances of your own? Please share.
