Working In Fast Food As Told By Jennifer Lawrence And Amy Schumer
Being a college student sometimes calls for desperate measures. One of those desperate measures is working in a fast food restaurant.
To make some extra cash, you got to do what you got to do. You may have loved eating there before you worked there, but trust me, that feeling will change pretty quickly. From Chick-fil-A, Subway and McDonald’s to Pizza Hut, they are all just as bad as the other to work for.
For those of you that haven’t resorted to working in fast food, here is what it’s like, told by best friends Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer.
(For those who have not yet heard, J-Law and the Schumes are actually writing a screenplay together and starring as sisters in the upcoming movie. This may be the funniest movie ever made. Check out People.com to learn more.)
When you are taking a hot guy’s order while nonchalantly trying to flirt.
Taking orders from attractive people while you have a “Chick-fil-A” visor on may be one of the most degrading things on the planet.
When a customer orders literally the grossest thing on the menu.
Sometimes you just want to tell people that they are not right in the head for eating some of the weird and disgusting stuff on the menu.
When your manager calls you to say you don’t need to come in for your shift today.
It’s one of the best feelings ever getting that call or text that you get the day off unexpectedly. Sounds like a full day of Netflix and ice cream, am I right?!
When you are forced to work a holiday and your manager asks why you’re so giggly.
Working holidays are the worst especially when you have to miss out on spending time with family and friends, but hey, if a co-worker is doing shots in the kitchen, why not? After all, it is a holiday!
When you and a co-worker see the most annoying employee get yelled at by the manager.
There is always that one employee that is a know-it-all and drives everyone crazy; sometimes it’s fun to see managers lose their cool with them.
When other employees come in the kitchen to tell you what a rude customer said to them.
Not an hour goes by without an employee telling someone about what a customer said to them. There is always a wild story about a rude customer, and it is tough dealing with them.
When you’re trying to think of an excuse for why you can’t take a coworker’s shift.
It seriously stinks when co-workers come up to you to ask if you can cover their shift one day. It sucks even more when you can’t think of a lie to get out of it.
“Uh, sorry I can’t … I have to … water my dog?”
When customers come up to you rambling off orders like you can actually understand what they are saying.
Look, we get you’re in a rush, but we cannot hear, nor understand you when you start ordering as soon as you walk in the door. Slow. Down.
When a manager asks if you can come in on your day off and you really need the money.
Sometimes you have to make the tough decision if you want to have the day off and chill for once, or make some extra money. Either one requires some type of alcohol.
When a customer insists on talking to a manager, and your manager ends up telling them exactly what you already told them.
This is probably the most annoying thing when dealing with customers.
The manger is going to tell you exactly what I just said. No, we cannot give you a refund after you ate 3/4 of the meal.
When you have to work Sunday morning and come to work still drunk from the night before.
I mean, let’s face it, you can’t always let work get in the way of your fun. This way, you probably won’t even remember half of your shift.
Just kidding, but this actually does happen more than you think at fast food jobs, and the customers can always tell, which is pretty embarrassing.
When your manager says “You can stay to close right?”
No matter where you work, mangers are always trying to get employees to stay and close. Everyone hates closing, so it’s funny they even try sometimes.
When you finally clock out for a break and your co-worker makes you bomb ass food.
These are the times when working in a fast food restaurant can pay off. Your co-workers always have your back with the weird but amazing modifications you guys learn from experimenting with the regular menu.
When you get stuck closing with the manager everyone hates.
Again, closing stinks. Cleaning up literally everything, and all the messes that were made that day is not fun. It makes it even worse when you are supervised by the strictest manger that analyzes everything you did before allowing you to leave.
Let’s face it, we all loved working in fast food.
I’m totally joking … it was horrible.
