Employee Of The Day
I stopped into McDonald's the other day while running errands to grab a bite to eat. I had an interesting exchange with a worker there. I am guessing I appreciated her honestly more than her supervisors would. Here is our conversation. Please note she had no noticeable personality or energy.....pure "straight man".
Her: Can I help you?
Me: Double Cheeseburger please.
Her: That will be 1.29.
Me: I thought it was a dollar.
Her: It is no longer on the dollar menu. We have the McDouble now.
Me: What is that?
Her: Same thing as a double cheeseburger, but with only one piece of cheese.
Me: You're kidding me?
Me: So they want 20 cents for one piece of cheese?
Her: I guess so.
Me: Does it make that much of a difference?
Her: I don't know, I never had one.
Me: You ought to try one sometime.
Her: I would never eat the food here.
Yes.....she said that. So I bought my McDouble and left. Needless to say her lack of personality and sense of humor makes her a prime candidate to move into the exciting world of Convenience Store Cashiers.
