That sounds like trespassing. But hey, I'm just a law-talking guy.
 
2022-05-23 6:40:14 PM  
If they tell you to leave, you kinda need to leave. Also: I wouldn't eat anything they gave you after they told you to leave.

Without a counter story to dispute the facts, the guy is entirely in the right.

He arrived in the drivethrough and made a very basic order for 2 fast food items. On a previous trip they'd forced him to wait an extremely long time for his very basic order. This time he refused to move the car until he received either his order or a refund to his credit card which he used to make the purchase. The store didn't produce his order and refused to reverse the card charge.

If anything, it makes me think that the police might actually need to investigate the restaurant for credit card fraud. Reversing the charge should have taken a minute at worst.

There's seems like there's more to this story that is being let on if an employee remembers you being a pain in the ass. The story only mentions a previous time, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's a regular nuisance

I've been on both sides of this.

Had to talk to a manager (in a drive through)  because the employee taking my order with very broken English seemed to indicate that the place didn't carry the diet soda I had ordered. The problem being that I had ordered the same diet soda earlier that day on my way to work and been told that "it doesn't display on the screen correctly" where it appears as regular sugared soda.

Maybe the guy is a jerk, but the actual problem at issue is a legitimate problem. If he's so well known that nobody wants to serve him, they should have given the refund (or even refused to serve him to begin with)  and insisted he leave. Taking his money, demanding he leave the drivethrough, and refusing to issue a proper refund is legitimately borderline theft.

It was in the UK but in the US it is pretty common to have a parking area to wait for  drive thru items to keep the line moving. The guy is just a wanker that couldn't understand a simple direction and  has nothing else to do besides complain and bother people. Bet he voted yes on Brexit

Just to be clear, I also worked in fast food for several years and actually quit my job over an incident where management decided to play fast and loose with employee responsibility while taking none for themselves. If management is forcing employees to serve hostile customers, they don't deserve the employees they have.

Possibly. But there is legal recourse the man could have taken without trespassing or being disorderly.

He should have left and done that instead of being a dick.

When I delivered pizza, 99% of my customers were nice people, even if I was a little late, which rarely happened.  The worst however were deliveries to nursing homes.  The employees that work there are singularly miserable.  I hope I die before I end up in any of those places.

Eventually I took my time taking their lunch orders out and they stopped calling.

I think everybody is missing the take-home lesson here.  Apparently, in the UK, you can get Double Sausage and Egg McMuffins.  Is that two sausage  patties and one egg or two(sausage patty and egg)?

I've not seen this in The States and now I'm curious is the Golden Haunches in Canada offer such an item.  I'll check in the AM.

Trespassing.  Typically when an officer responds, in the states where I have worked, you give the person a trespassing notice, a copy of which goes to them, a second copy goes into the police records for that address.  This is done at the request of the properties owner or a manager.

If the person then refuses to leave, they go to jail.  If they return to the property, when you run their ID, it will ping on the computer that they are trespassed from the property, and they go to jail.  I don't now if the warning eventually goes away, but I have seen trespassing orders that were several years old that were enforced.

My guess is that the manager didn't have the balls to actually ask the cops to trespass or arrest the idiot.  They were probably worried about the whole "the customer is always right" BS which doesn't count in situations where the customer is hurting your ability to conduct business with others.  They are no longer a customer but a vandal at that point, but some managers don't understand this.

It's weird, but sometimes a Trespassing Order is more useful for stopping a stalker than an actual restraining order.  It shouldn't be the case, but you can always make an arrest then and there for breaking a trespassing order, whereas a restraining order, if the stalker victim is not actually present, but it is someplace they frequent, like their place of employment, it can get tricky, especially when you know the stalker is waiting for the victim, or wants the victim to know that they were there.

Er, technically it wasn't a MAGAt this time. It was a Make Briton Jolly Good Again tit.

And his reason for being pissed doesn't hold water. I've had to sit around for a chicken sammich from them before. It literally is all of pulling over into their parking lot where it's labeled and waiting for a few minutes. Big farking whoop. Hysterically due to his temper tantrum cost him and others far more time than it would have been had he pulled his big boy pants up and done as asked.

Might have been trying to, but going about it the wrong way.  You tell him to leave, and call the police, and the police will come and tell him to leave and serve any formal trespass, and arrest if he doesn't then leave.

Seriously. I hadn't eaten the stuff in I don't even know how long but the last time I remember doing so, I had just arrived in Lahore, early 2011 and as green as very green thing indeed.

But last week the craving overtook me and why the hell not? One Filet O' Fish every other decade can't do that much damage, right? A few fries? Some brown sugar water? No sweat.

I will not detail the nearly immediate and explosive result. But I won't be doing that again anytime soon.

No he isn't.

I managed a McDonald's for 10 years. Here is the deal, sometimes things go wrong and you will have to wait much longer for your food them expected. Mistakes happen. It doesn't mean that everytime you go through its going to be a awful experience. If he is so upset and dissatisfied over waiting for his last order why the hell did he go back the next day?

I've dealt with idiots like this jackass many times. They all give you the business (I hate your service, your food is awful, etc...) But they are always back in your drive thru the next day.

Be respectful to the people who are making your food. If you have to wait a few minutes extra, grow up and deal with it. If that few minutes extra wait really pisses you off you are more then welcome to patronize another drive thru restaurant or cook your own meals.

That whole the customer is always right schtick is taken so far out of context it isn't even on the same planet.

The quote was closer to "the customer is always right in knowing what he wants".
