I went into Taco Bell in Reedsburg, WI for a quick meal as I had to pick my wife up at 6:30. There was one person in line in front of me. That should have left me 30 minutes to peruse the next door gun store. I entered at 5:45, they took the order from the guy in front of me at about 5:50. (warning sign 1) They took my order of 1 burrito at 6:02. (warning sign 2) I received my burrito at 6:31 I was about out of my mind, I know my face was red hot at about 20 minutes in, but I tried to keep my cool. It actually got to be funny later on as I had to stay just to see how long this burrito would take. There were about 4 teenagers and 1 adult working, the kids kept walking around, looking up at the monitor but not accomplishing anything. I had to savor that burrito as it must have been very carefully prepared.
We are f**cked as a society...there is way too much free money floating around.
I read a word for word meeting from a Blimpy Sub Sandwich? franchise owners, CEO telling the owners how things have drastically changed in the past few years. Blimpy sends young [spies] [employee] into the stores acting as a new hire, usually a cute young female. She talks to the employees, they tell her how they plot to run customers off so they don't have to work much. They drag ass, mess up orders, ++ hoping the person never comes back. Biggest problem is Phones, they're addicted to them and want to be paid to stand around and I-Phone on TikTak instagram, while doing as little as possible. CEO, told the owners, we're now in a very different time and place and it's not going to get better.
The last one I ordered was in Madison. Somehow, they had it to me before I walked away from the counter. The guy at the register may have been a bit slow giving me my change. In the half hour wait, I did a lot of thinking about the state of our workforce and the economy as a whole.
i went thru this last weekend at a mom & pop pizza place too 1 adult 5 kids what a mess granddaughter got her meal alot later than the rest of us and that up set me , granddaughter was 8 years old so you know how that went.
We need to go back to the old days old ways, some sag-pant punk stumbling around not working got the piss smacked out of him. Drag them to the bathroom and give them three Swirlys face down in the toilet, then tell them - now get busy boy/girl. They sas you - stomp a mudhole in their ass
Chesterwy, For example, the guy in front of me last night, while waiting for our food, told me his friend gets "Foodshare" (food stamps). He had been getting $450/month. During covid, they increased the amount, and still are, by $750 per month! He now gets $1,200/month for food from the gov! I don't know anything about this program, but assume he must have a family of 3 or 4.
I had a conversation recently with a Wendy’s District Mgr.
She used to be an employee when I was 16 yrs old working there. Now she has 38 stores.
Informed her of my very own 28 min wait at the drive thru with NOBODY in front of me. After all the wait, I figured everything would be super hot and great just for me. NOPE, both sandwiches were wrong, chicken rubbery from probably 4 hours holding, fries were soggy and room temp. Frosty was liquid.
Went inside and got one of the sandwiches fix, more fries but they were same, just blah.
District mgr told me they are being held hostage by employees who come in when they feel like it, use the covid excuse for a few days off, when they are there, zombie like state.
Anyway, I told her she needed to cut my a check for about $25,000 for all the bust ass work I did compared to these slugs. I was doing the work of 5 of these $15 hour deadasses and I was getting $3.
