Setting: Taco Bell drive-through.
Me: “I’ll have a #1 with a normal taco and a Diet –”
TB: “Okay, I have a #1 with a soft taco and a Diet Pepsi. Anything else?”
Me (annoyed): “No. Listen, please.”
TB (pause): “I’m sorry. Go ahead.”
Me: “A #1, with a normal taco instead of a Taco Supreme, and a Diet Pepsi.”
The drive-through operator apologized again. I pulled to the window, where I apologized for snapping.
I’ve worked fast food. I know it can be tough. But is it too much for me to expect them to listen to my order?
