ristst: hailin: I can kind of understand the condiment rage (sort of). My husband likes to dip his fries in Big Mac sauce......

/Similar CSB

The McD's in my area had incredibly nasty employees, they were nowhere near civil.  One night I went to get my daughter a Happy Meal, and the chick behind the counter was mopping with a gnarly mop.  The guy up in front of me orders ice cream, and she gets it without washing her hands (no gloves either).  I was *appalled*...she handled the ice cream cone!  Then she got water for another dude, still no washing.  When she went to get my daughter's HM, I made her wash her hands....*thoroughly* and put on gloves, while announcing loudly "not trying to be a jerk, but isn't there some kinda law about this?"  All the employees were giving me the major stinkeye, as if I was the one being an ass.  (I got her chicken nuggets, and I watched CLOSELY to see if they were gonna do something to it)

On the way out, the dude that bought the water called me over to his car.  I told him "I wouldn't drink that water if I were you, the chick did NOT wash her hands after handling the puke mop".  He says "I'm not gonna drink it, I'm from McD's CORPORATE, and I'm here to investigate this place...we've been getting major reports about the employees."  He had seen my whole incident!  He said, "Trust me on this one, HEADS WILL ROLL...you won't see *any* of these people working here as of next week."

/oh man, Kharma sometimes *rules*


Oh that is NASTY! Also it is sad you had to worry they would mess with your daughter's food. She is a CHILD for crying out loud. Degenerates.

McD's corporate is awesome though. Lots of franchise hq really don't give a damn about customers. McD's does and is always inspecting and getting on the case of franchise owners to step up. My friend owns a DQ and says he gets an annual inspection and new promotional material in the mail, but that is about all the interaction he has with DQ corporate. He knows the owner that owns most of our McD's and says he is constantly complaining he has 3 inspections a year, dozens of secret shoppers from corporate, and is required to submit monthly numbers and attend "re-training" meetings if their numbers are off more than two months in a row. Also he has to remodel practically every 3 years. My friend hasn't remodeled his DQ in ten years, he just updated the signage.

hailin: We got a coupon book full of coupons and a call from the owner apologizing profusely saying he was unaware they were charging for condiments (didn't believe him, but it was the thought that counts). Two things happened: they have never charged for Big Mac sauce again and I've never seen that manager again, but I don't frequent McD's enough so that isn't a surprise.


Line up a bunch of fast food managers and you'll be hard-pressed to find the one that's not a jerk, but I think a lot of this sort of thing happens because the job is so absurd.  Most of the employees obviously don't respect the job (they're deliberately set up for high turnover) and the customer base will include a sizeable chunk of the worst of humanity.  Even in franchises where the stores are supposedly privately owned, they're under immense cost pressures.  When a business model appeals to a screw-for-all of the lowest common denominator, Grade F meat only gets you so far.  It's not like HQ cares; they collect their cut either way.  I'm sure the condiments are dirt cheap but I'd guess most of these policies are in place because some asshole kept emptying the bin of ketchup packets or something.

Long story short, I doubt they're out to make money on charging for condiments; the idea is to keep people from walking out with half the store in their pockets.

I can kind of understand the condiment rage (sort of). My husband likes to dip his fries in Big Mac sauce. We always ordered a side of Big Mac sauce no problems for years and they would fill up a ketchup container. One time we are at a McD's and they say it will be 15 cents. Weird, but I wasn't going to argue. We get to the window, they hand us the cup, and I kid you not there was maybe a pea-sized amount of Big Mac sauce in the cup. I asked them politely if they could at least fill it to the top and she had to go get her manager. The manager comes out and says if I want it filled to the top I would need to pay .15 per squirt! Out of curiosity I told the biatchy manager okay and to fill it up. It came out to $3 for a ketchup cup of Big Mac sauce. I laughed, told her I wouldn't pay for that, and so she kicked us out for "wasting her time and resources".

Contacted McD corporate about the bizarre scenario and to their credit they hopped on the issue right away. We got a coupon book full of coupons and a call from the owner apologizing profusely saying he was unaware they were charging for condiments (didn't believe him, but it was the thought that counts). Two things happened: they have never charged for Big Mac sauce again and I've never seen that manager again, but I don't frequent McD's enough so that isn't a surprise. Either way, I was surprised how seriously our silly complaint was taken so I have nothing against McD's.

gfid: Can't they throw in the ketchup and ranch dressing or whatever the hell you want for free?


The first two packets were free.

Did people really start abusing their free condiments?

Yes.  Would you expect any different?

Broktun: Don't you just want to slam the quarter down on the counter so the person will move on??



I have paid for the customer in front of me before when they were fumbling for change and holding up the line....I just wanted cigarettes, dammit and I wanted them like 5 minutes ago.

That said, WTF?  fast food places are now charging for extra packs of condiments?  I mean, they're charging $2 for 15 cents worth of soda, about the same for 40 cents worth of ground beef, lettuce and stale soggy bread.  Can't they throw in the ketchup and ranch dressing or whatever the hell you want for free?

It is like being in the check out line at a grocery store and grandma is digging in her coin purse for exact change.  Here is a damn quarter you hag, not get out of my way.

The Pope of Manwich Village: I too get irritable when dieting.


If you need 3 packets of ranch dressing you are not dieting.

That said, what a p*ssy.  It takes a real badass to punch a 68 year old over a 25-cent packet of dressing.
