Fast Food Workers Share Their Funniest 'Sir, This Is A Wendy's' Experience
There's an excellent Litmus Test for determining how noble a human being you are, and it starts and stops with any nearby fast food drive-thru. If you can pull up, order your food, pay, and leave without treating the employees like garbage, you're a relatively decent human being. If you, or someone you know, can't do that, odds are you probably associate with the terrible people on this list.
Reddit user, u/YangWenli1, wanted to hear about:
Fast food workers, what is your "Sir, this is a Wendy's" moment?
Let's Start Off Strong!happy homer simpson GIFGiphy
I worked at a Wendy's!
Had one guy try to order McNuggets over the speaker. When I asked what size they wanted, they got all defensive that I wouldn't call them MCnuggets.
"Fine, fine, fine, I'll take a whopper"
"...uhhh, a Dave's Double? Or Baconator?"
Needless to say, they screamed at me and zoomed off into the smogset. Worst year of my life.
What Did You Think It Was?
Worked at Burgerking around the time free WIFI was becoming a thing. My store even advertised it on the sign outside. One night some guy comes through the driver through and starts to make his order.
Customer: "...Whopper jr with a Coke, and I'll take one weefee" Manager: "Ummm sir do you mean WIFI??" C: "Yeah" M: "Sir that's wireles internet" C: (obviously confused af) "oh" drives away
Another occasion some lady wanted her meal for free. When asked why she said she was a McDonald's assistant manager. Again this was at Burgerking
Almost Got It...c
This was many years ago when I worked at a Pizza Hut. I can't recall the exact exchange now.
Police came in guns drawn yelling "Where is he?!".
"Where is who?" "The guy, the guy!!" "What guy!?" ...
Turns out the alarm was going off at Dominoes about 1/8 mile down the road.
We All Got Problems
I work at an airport in a pizza shop. We tell every guest it's going to be a 6 minute wait for the pizza, and 2 minutes later they come back and demand we rush there food because there plane is boarding. The amount of times I've been told, "Can you hurry I have a flight to catch!" Is utterly bizzare. Everyone has a flight to catch you just suck at timing out sh-t!
Look At The Sign.
I work at Dunkin Donuts and it is a real sh-tshow. My favorites:
- Once our order taking system got out of order. The cashier handed a bag with a sandwich to a girl who had ordered a box of a dozen donuts, and she took it, paid, drove away. Came back confused an hour later saying "I ordered a dozen donuts and got a sandwich instead?" So why did you take the sandwich???
- People love to order in Starbucks sizes or ask for Starbucks drinks. Whenever they say "grande" or whatever I just ask "what size?" Over and over until they get the hint. Same thing with Frappucinos, "So a frozen coffee?" Some people love to argue that we have things like Frappucinos, or nitro cold brew. Please read the menu folks.
Ma'am, Look At The Sign
I work at a chilis and when I was hosting old people would constantly come in and talk about how weird it was that we redecorated so suddenly and where did the salad bar go??
They thought we were Sizzlers which was two buildings away from us. Happened at least four times.
Seriously, Ma'am, Look At The Sign
Work at Panera.
Guest calls in from car, several people in background, all giving orders for a pick up. First order is something simple, next order is an item we don't carry. A salmon dish of some kind. I know there are some regional Paneras that have or have had salmon. We are not one of them.
So I let them know, "Hey, I'm sorry but we don't carry salmon. Maybe-" and the person on the other end of the phone cuts me off and starts getting really aggressive. "Yes you do! YOU DO!" they scream.
But I don't. We don't.
So then I'm like, "Hey, maybe you're thinking of another chain. We are very similar to-" and I start to list off some other places, and they cut me off again screaming, "I KNOW YOU HAVE F-CKING SALMON! WHAT THE F-CK! I ATE IT JUST THE OTHER DAY!"
And at this point I'm just being honest with them and say, "Hey man, I don't really need this attitude. We don't have salmon. I can't make the dish for you. You have us confused with someone else."
There's a long silence and finally someone (not the person who's been yelling) says, "Wait, this isn't *insert some totally not Panera sounding place that I don't remember here*?"
And then everyone in the car starts yelling at each other, and I hang up.
Customer service is the worst.
This Isn't The High Quality Restaurant You Think It Is
Now, working at McDonald's, every single day at the same time, 16:00 this old guy would come in and order his food, most people knew that he wanted a special order, over cook the sh-t out of the patty. Started up right when he walked in.
Anyway that's not the problem, that was easy, the problem is this dude was forgetful as all hell, and would demand a ceramic plate to eat on every time. So that's when we would explain it to him. Dude this is McDonald's, we don't have plates. And he'd usually be like oh right, right. But, Sometimes he would just rant about how we SHOULD have plates. I saw him absolutely flip the f-ck out, because a girl stepped outside the breakroom with a plate of food she brought from home. I KNEW YOU BASTARDS HAD PLATES and could not convince him otherwise ever there after.
Keep it in the breakroom is the moral of the story
...Yeahbuwha?season 3 confusion GIFGiphy
Dude came to drive thru. I open the window, "sir, how can I help you."
"I'm outa checks." He replies calmly.
"Not sure I follow you." I say.
"I'm outa checks." He says again more impatiently.
"Right, I heard you but I don't know what you want me to do about it. You can pay with cash or card too."
Dude gives me a weird look then says, "Oh this ain't the bank." And peels out away from the window.
I'm a pharmacist.
Pay Me Back For All These Pizzas I Didn't Buy
I am late to the party but anyway.
As teenager I was working at a supermarket weekends.
An older lady comes to me and shows me a frozen pizza and explains me that all the pizzas have reached the best before date and was really mad. She was demanding that I remove all the pizzas and a compensation (for what?) and so on. The date on the pizza was the production date
Sir, We Only Serve Photos Here.
I worked in a photo lab inside a Walmart, that also had a McDonalds. Everything in the photo lab was yellow. The cupboards and the walls and what not.
One day some guy walks in and orders a quarter pounder with cheese. We were like umm sorry this is a photo lab. He says oh for f sakes, I saw all the yellow and just thought you were Mcdonalds lol
We Can Only Tell You So Many Times
I worked at Panera for 6 years and I about lost it with this one.
Guy orders his food and I ask ,"do you want the apple, baguette or chips?"
He goes. "Umm, I'll take a nugget", with the most serious look ever on his face.
I still laugh about it to this day.
SERIOUSLY. Did You Look At The Sign?
Legit had an old man walk up into the Pizza Hut I worked at and ask the manager for a cheeseburger. She told him we didn't serve burgers and he goes "Well what do you have?" She looked at him dumbfounded and replied "Pizza..." His response? "Oh I don't like that I'll just take a cheeseburger."
And the cycle repeated...
We Don't Do That Here
I worked at McDonald's and I was getting yelled at by a lady that was a splitting image of Tina from Bob's Burgers. She was upset because I couldn't replicate that stupid f-cking pink drink from Starbucks. I wouldn't even know how. After a few minutes of my manager and I explaining that she's not at a f-cking Starbucks, she settled for a vanilla iced coffee. I made the drink and handed it to her personally.
She then removed an old dirty Starbucks cup from her purse, poured her fresh made drink in there and threw the McDonald's cup at me.
Who Needs The Hassle?
It wasn't me involved but I witnessed it.
I worked at Burger King when I was a teenager. We are short staffed one day, and the girl on the drive thru was on break so our manager stepped in to cover her.
He was pretty old and didn't have the best hearing, so most customers were pulling around to the window to talk to him as he was struggling to hear through the headset. Anyway this one guy rolls up to the window and shouts "I want a large big mac meal with a coke PLEASE! Is that so damn hard?!"
My manager very calmy says "my apologies sir, that won't be difficult." he leans out of the window and points down the road "there's a McDonald's about 3 miles in that direction. They'll be able to help. Have a nice day sir." Then he just closes the window and walks around the corner out of sight. I laughed so hard!!
What Else Would A Dairy Queen Serve?
Worked at a Dairy Queen. Had a lady saunter in all frustrated, bag in hand. Whipped out her receipt and without giving me much context said, "there's supped to be a Baja Blast." I told her "m'am this is for Taco Bell." She quickly said "my bad" and sped out of the restaurant. I think she was making up a story and did it in the wrong store.
Also the number of people who asked "do you serve ice cream" is way too f-ckin high
Sir, You're In A Mall...homer simpson episode 10 GIFGiphy
Was a shift manager at a McDonald's in the middle of a mall. A guy walks up to the counter with several McDonald's bags of food.
Guy: My wife came through your drive-thru and you messed up the order!
Me: Are you sure she came through our drive-thru?
Guy: Yes! She told me she came through the drive-thru, and when she got home she realized the order was wrong. Y'all need to give us our money back and give us the right food.
Me: confused while looking around the mall
Me: Did she drive through Sears or JC Penny to get here?
Guy: Looks around and finally realizes he's in the middle of a mall. Grabs the bags and huffs away.
That was the single greatest amount of human stupidity I had experienced...until I joined Reddit.
This happened at an actual Wendy's. Its a bit long but trust me, its worth it to read.
I once had a woman come through the drive through and try to order Macaroni and cheese. I politely informed her we did not have that. She insisted we did. I told her we definitely didnt. She got angry and yelled that yes we did. I told her "ma'am Ive been working here 3 years. We have NEVER had macaroni and cheese. Its not something we serve. Would you like to order something else?" Shes says "yes you f-cking do! I can see it on the menu board! Its RIGHT there right in front of me on the menu!" I tell her Im really not sure what shes looking at, but we dont have mac and cheese, and if it really does say mac and cheese on our menu board then that means someone vandalized it. She says no, its definitely part of the menu board and its real and we do have it, and she isnt leaving until she gets her mac and cheese.
Cue quite literally 10 minutes of this back and forth, all while she's holding up the drive through line. I finally got the manager to come over and deal with it after asking him for the 15th time because they dont pay me NEARLY enough to deal with that for that long.
The woman absolutely REFUSES to accept that we dont have mac n cheese. She also refuses to order anything else, and wont move her car until we give her the mac and cheese that we dont have. We have a line of cars wrapped around the building now and everyone is pissed. Its been half an hour and the line has not moved.
The manager tells her if she doesnt leave, he's gonna have to call the cops. She screams she cant understand why we're doing all this, and why we wont just serve her mac and cheese when she can CLEARLY see it on our menu board right in front of her so we DO have it and why are we lying to her?
I decided enough is enough, I exit the building, walk along the outside to the drive through order screen where this woman's car is.
I tell her to please show me on the menu where it says the words "macaroni and cheese" anywhere.
She points and confidently says "Right there!" With all the conviction of someone who is absolutely sure they just proved some big dumb idiot wrong and that they will be hailed as a hero.
I look where shes pointing.
I see it.
I sigh heavily as a bit more of my soul dies.
I compose myself and say, as politely as I possibly can:
"That is a picture of the orange slices that come with the kids meal. We do not serve mac and cheese. Please drive away before the police get here."
She looks confused, looks at the menu board again, the realization dawns on her, and she drives off without a word. I go back inside and scream in the walk-in freezer for 10 minutes.

The Thing People Would Look For First If Given A Box Of Everything They Ever Lost
As much as we might try to take care of our things, there are going to be instances where we lose things that we love.
Ironically, those lost things might be some of the most meaningful things we have in our lives.
Redditor baba_yaga_777 asked:
"If someone offered you a box of everything you ever lost, what would you look for first?"
A Mother's Brooch
"The brooch I bought for my mom's birthday when I was five years old (60 years ago)."
"I took all my money out of my bank and walked to the local Hallmark store. The nice lady took my money (probably less than $2) and wrapped up the gift."
"When my mom opened her gift, we walked back to the store 'to thank the lady for wrapping it so nicely.' It was actually so my mom could offer to pay the rest of the cost of that beautiful brooch. The lady wouldn't accept any more money, though."
"And here we are, 60 years later, and I still remember the incredible kindness of that lady."
"I don't have the brooch or my mom, but I do have this memory."
"When we left Yemen during the civil war in 1994, it was rushed and we lost a handbag that had all family photos from 15 to 20 years prior. It sucks not to have pictures of me when I was younger."
The Perfect Fit
"My swim trunks for this summer. I just got them last year and they fit me perfectly, and now I can't find them for the life of me. It p**ses me off thinking about it."
All Progress Saved
"The 'Pokémon Crystal' game that I had leveled all of my favorite characters up to Level 80. The housecleaner swiped it and my parents wouldn’t believe me. F**k you, Julie."
Lost Loved Ones
"My daughter. She was gone way too quick."
A Beloved Baby Blanket
"My childhood blankie. I have no idea what happened to it!"
"I somehow managed not to lose or destroy mine and gave it to my firstborn child. He still keeps it in his bed and turns seven soon. I think I’d ask for that too if it was lost."
Former Best Friends
"My best friend from my formative years."
"Oof, same. She was like a sister to me. She lives on the other side of the country now and, even though we grew apart, I miss how I felt when I spent time with her."
"The stuffed platypus I had when I was in elementary. Every time my mom mentions finding stuff in my grandpa's house, I ask about it."
In Exchange for Toxic Relationships
"The self-esteem that I allowed others to destroy during a phase of illness."
"High school sketchbook full of emo edgy drawings."
The Family Ring
"My mum's ring she'd been given by her Grandma that I pawned (my mum agreed at the time but always regretted it afterwards)."
"I got way, way less than its worth, since the guy took advantage of my age and desperation. The worst thing is, I can't even remember the design so can't ever have it replicated and can't ask my mum because she passed away earlier this year."
"Sure, I still love holidays but… as a kid, it was like, 'Holy mother of everliving f**k, Halloween is in THREE WEEKS? That is entirely too long. I will never be able to wait. Holy d**n.' And when it finally arrived, I'd have the night of my life."
"Now it’s like, 'Oh no. Halloween is in two days. Uh... Oh well...'"
The Sea of Lost Picks
"As a guitarist, all of my f**king picks."
Junk Drawers and Boxes
"The box I lost that had everything in it."
Quite the Conundrum
"The issue is that I can't recall what I've lost."
We've all lost things in our lives, some more important than others.
It's especially telling that at least most of us know exactly what we would seek first, before anything else that might possibly be in that box.
People Share What Their Reaction Would Be To Meeting A Naked Hiker On The Trail
There are several things that are appealing to hikers.
Being out in nature and taking in some fresh air is a huge motivation for people to get out of the house.
Getting exercise is also a factor to maintain a healthy heart.
But there could be one unexpected element to a hike that can happen hypothetically, and it's sure to raise your heartbeat.
Specifically, seeing something shocking along the hiking trail, like, say, a naked person could make for an exciting–or disturbing–hiking outing. It certainly doesn't get any more au natural than that.
Curious to hear from strangers, Redditor spenf asked:
"What would be your reaction if you encountered a nude hiker?"
These Redditors assessed the situation and saw no harm.
"I have passed two nude hikers in my 35 years of hiking. One male, one female, years and thousands of miles apart. Both said 'hello'. I said 'hello.' One mentioned the trail was washed out ahead but a second trail has been cut. I thanked them for the heads-up. Some people like the wind and sun on their skin. Both had on hiking boots. To each their own."
Sign Of Good Character
"I have. Three times! I'm an avid backpacker and you can usually find me in Yosemite, SeKi, Emigrant or Carson-Iceberg in California on any random summer weekend."
"My standard line: 'Afternoon, I didn't realize it was so cold out today!'"
"One of them didn't get the joke. The other two laughed their nude a**es off."
"Here's my reasoning. If you're naked and can laugh at a joke, you're probably not a threat."
"Depends. A hiker with hiking boots/shoes and a backpack, but otherwise nude, or a completely nude person on a hiking trail?"
"Scenario 1: I give a friendly wave and hike on."
"Scenario 2: I give a more tentative wave and hike on, maintaining a heightened awareness of my surroundings."
"I met one once. A middle aged man in ok shape. Had nice hiking boots, thick wool socks, fancy framed backpack, two walking poles, hat, sunglasses, and nothing else on."
"I said hi in a neutral voice, he replied hi in an equally neutral voice. We passed, I did not look back."
Some hikers are suspect.
"While backpacking out of Rocky Mountain National Park we encountered a dude wearing nothing but shoes and some very small shorts. He was off trail about 100' at the edge of a meadow, walking and swinging a machete. I...did not approach. He was probably a mile in from the trail head. I'm guessing drugs."
Beware Of Black Magic
"Ha! There are a lot of superstitious rumors/stories circulating around scenario 2 in India. Apparently, people who practice black magic with the sole intent of harming someone are often seen walking naked in places you don't expect people, carrying weird items."
"Either you interrupt them by disturbing them (no clue what happens next) or you run in the opposite direction."
You may want to take note.
"I live in the Bay Area and naked hikers are not uncommon."
"Good naked hiker: has appropriate shoes, a backpack or fanny pack, is hiking with intention and looks tanned and fit and like he does this regularly. Good naked hikers will give you room so you don't have to interact unless you really want to."
"Bad naked hiker: shoeless, visible sores, scrapes, or burns, moving erratically (i.e. really slow or in a zig-zag). Might be a drugged out person. Out-of-shape or pale are indications this is not normal for them and they may not have intended for this to happen."
"Exhibitionist: makes a point to make eye contact, smile at you, wave, try to involve you. Good naked hikers are usually on long, deep trails where they're less likely to encounter others, and they tend to give clothed hikers a wide breath out of a sense of respect and consent. Exhibitionists get chummy; it excites them to be seen naked."
"Also depends on the area. A deep woods area with long trails is ideal for naked hiking. Shorter and more accessible trails are less okay because there's a higher likelihood of encountering families with children."
"Also depends on if they're with friends or not. A group of naked hikers is less concerning than an individual."
"All this boils down to:"
"If you see a naked hiker, mind your own business. A good naked hiker isn't trying to bother you. A bad naked hiker is potentially dangerous. An exhibitionist wants attention so any attention paid to them will fuel them. Best thing to do is nod as you pass and carry on like you haven't even noticed."
"Edit: There are actually areas in the Bay Area where it's permitted to hike naked. Regionally, some places allow nudity. Also some places allow women to be topless so a topless female hiker might just be evening out her tan. It's best not to assume and to know the local laws before passing judgement on a person getting their nature on."
Guilty as charged.
The Name Is A Dead Giveaway
"No reaction at all, since I would be nude myself."
"Stare in disbelief. That's just very strange and coincidental for two nude hikers to run into each other."
"I guess make sure they have sunscreen also."
To each their own, but if hiking in the nude is your thing, you do you.
And just a heads up: If you're walking around in the buff and happen to be wielding a machete, you're going to make people very jittery. So maybe drop the prop.
Also, wear plenty of sunscreen.
The Absolute Hardest Parts Of Dating After Age 30
30 is the new 20.
At least, that's what a lot of people tell themselves after they pass that milestone birthday.
Even so, while age is merely a number, people still find certain things grow increasingly more challenging with each passing year.
Including, or even particularly, dating.
Those still on the hunt for love after turning 30 might grow increasingly insecure, worry that their moment has passed, or be unable to ignore the ticking of their biological clock reminding them that time might be running out to start a family.
Not to mention, playing a losing game over and over can become completely and utterly exhausting after a while.

Good Luck Getting A Good Night's Sleep...
"CPAP Machines."- Reddit
As long as you are single, finding love is one of the many things you think you might never achieve with each passing year.
However, when you do finally find that one true love, no matter when or how old you are, you will realize in no time at all it was definitely worth the wait.
Sometimes the simplest or most obvious things are the things you learn late.
I've been shopping at DSW for 20 years now, and I was literally today years old when I realized 'DSW' weren't just random letters, but stood for 'Designer Shoe Warehouse.'
Yeah, that one made me feel pretty stupid!
Luckily, I'm not the only one. Redditors know of many obvious things they only recently realized, and are eager to share.
It all started when Redditor itsochepel asked:
"What obvious thing did you recently realize?"
A House Is Not A Bed
"That birds don't live in nests. Nests are just where they keep their eggs. Birds just sleep in trees."
"Pretty much, yes. Even ground birds like chickens and quail will roost in trees when they aren't setting eggs."
"what now. this has ruined me"
"Can I offer you an nice egg in this trying time?"
Worst Kind Of Typo
"That there is a typo on my email in my resume. Somehow it went unnoticed for 6+ months..."
"I sent out resumes once saying that “I am an excellent poof reader""
"If I read that on a resume I wouldn’t be surprised if I thought it was done intentionally as a joke because it would seem too funny to be an accident."
If I Had Only Realized
"I played through nearly all of Fallout 4 (I didn’t buy the game until fairly recently) without realizing there’s a jump button. If I got trapped someplace, I just restarted from a previous save and complained about what kinda idiots didn’t make it so you can jump. But I’m the idiot."
A (Confusing?) Family Tree
"My grandson just figured out I am his mothers mother. He just can't understand why I tell him we have to ask his mom to do some things. Why can't I just tell his mom we are going to do something? I am her mom therefore her boss!"
"That’s so cute. Reminds me of when my younger niece realized that her half sister (who does not live with her) was her sister too. Just like my older niece is her sister. She was amazed. She told me “I saw daddy and Kay yesterday. We had so much fun. Did you know that Kay is my sister?!”"
"My nephew still doesn't understand that his uncle is my brother, and his mom is my sister. He'll go back and forth on it constantly. "But uncle is MOMS brother!" Yes, and just like how you have a sister, uncle and I also share a sister - your MOM.
"Additionally, my niece used to gently grab my mom's arm any time I called her mom and would go "no aunty, that's MY Gramma." Yes, I know, but she is still MY mother. "That's mommy's mom, she's my grandma. Not yours." Hunny that is because she is my mother. Your mom and I share a mother. "She is mommy's mom. Not yours." Oh you dear thing. That's not how it works."
"They're lucky they're cute lol"
"That Men's Wearhouse is a pun."
"Holy sh*t, I didn't even notice it was spelled Wearhouse cuz my mind filled in the rest."
"Also the Beatles, I recently realized"
"I'm ashamed. All my life. All my life, sitting right there in front of me...."they must've thought beetles would make a cool name because the bugs are cool. That's so RaNDOmm. HuRr""
I'd Like Some "Pepsi"
"Growing up, my grandparents religiously had a 3:00 PM “Pepsi” time. Like Tea Time, I guess, but with Pepsi. Every time we were over there, it happened. We all enjoyed a crisp, fizzy, cold Pepsi."
"At 43 years old, I was telling that story this week, when I suddenly realized theirs were most likely spiked."
There's A Difference?
"When getting an eye exam you are asked which looks better 1, or 2. If they are identical or too close to call, you have a 3rd option. The same. They never told me that."
"Every time I’ve gotten an eye exam, I’ve felt like I’m failing a test I studied for everyday lol"
Not Too Long Then
"Driving through South Dakota with my family and I was so amazed by the vast fields of livestock. I turned to my husband and asked him how long it must take for the farmer to round up all the cows each night and get them into the barns. My husband laughed so hard."
"Apparently cows don’t sleep in barns at night!"
Ohhh, That's Why!
"Soft drinks are called soft drinks bc they don’t contain alcohol. Hard drinks do."
"I used to think soft drinks only meant carbonated drinks because they felt soft and fizzy on your tongue. Then I saw it on a canister of Kool Aid and it clicked."
"Have been bartending for 16 years and learned this right now"
Named For Us
"Will smith and Jada smith named their kids after themselves. Jadan smith and Willow smith. Why I never put that together is beyond me"
"Will Smith's first son from his previous marriage was Willard too, although I think it's a family name."
"That Alucard from Castlevania just means Dracula backwards..."
"Felt so dumb for not seeing the extremely obvious"
"Let me tell you a story about Ekans and Arbok."
"Pipe cleaners aren’t just for arts and crafts."
