I've been working at Whataburger (fast food hamburger joint) for about three and a half months now. I run the drive through pretty much. There are some things that really bother me.

1) I HATE it when a customer goes through the drive thru, orders their meal, comes up to the drive thru, and when I give it to them, they ask if they can get it inside because they have to go to the bathroom.

ARRGH! For God's sake, if you have to use the restroom, park the damn car and then go inside! Don't think you can make it going through the drive thru because you won't!

2) I hate it when people change their orders five zillion times!

All you have to do is say is "I'm not ready yet" and continue looking! Make up your mind before you order! Also, changing your orders AT the drive thru window is NOT appreciated either.


3) Orders over 4 meals ARE NOT appreciated! They clog up the drive thru line! Plus I have ten million other things to do besides handing out your food! Just go inside for GOD's sake. You'll get it faster that way.

4) There ought to be a rule about school buses stopping at fast food restaurants. They cause CHAOS! Instead of bringing the entire TEAM inside, why don't y'all just pack food to eat or have somebody go and get the food and bring it back!


5) The stereotype that most fast food workers are idiots is preposterous! In fact, I've noticed it's the customers that aren't so bright. I can't tell you how many customers have FORGOTTEN their order AFTER ordering it!!!!! Jesus Christ!


These are just some of the things that bother me at work. You'll understand it better if you have worked in a fast food restaurant and done the drive through.

Awwww, those were the good 'ole days. NOT! And for the record, there ARE quite a few idiots who work in the fast food industry . . . including the managers. Not all of them but in my experience, a good number of them are indeed complete numskulls.

I think you should add all of the above and make a huge notice for the customers to read, when they do any of the above you can tap the sign and shove a burger in thier face

My friend works at a place like that and one day she dared another girl she worked with to sing everything she said when she was taking the customers orders. Try that next time maybe it'll make it more fun

I always thought fast food sucked for deaf people. We rarely ever had any deaf or hispanic individuals come by because of the hassle it was for them to try & order something. It never failed that I was the lucky one to go & take their order because "we don't want to mess with them" because "we don't understand them." That's a good idea though, for use with anyone really. Just pull up, punch in your order, and wait for it. No need to talk to anyone!

It would beat writing your order down on a piece of paper and hoping they can read your handwriting.
