Complaint / review text:
I agree with a previous posting— people in fast food are basically idiots— that's just the reality of things. But why are fast food workers so stupid that they can't comprehend simple grade school math. I can't understand why people that work in fast food are the biggest idiots in society. After going to a wendy's where I kept receiving cold hard burgers, I called back to ask if they could replace my next burger.
The guy on the phone said he could and when I went there to get the burger replaced, I told him that I was going to get a different burger this time because of the bad experiences and that I'll just pay the difference of the burger which ended up being around a dollar. He first disagreed and said that I could just replace the burger, but I insisted that I want a different burger. He then began to do the math and instead of charging me the difference for the burger, he took the difference off. After adding up everything I ordered and giving me the total I explained to him that he was incorrect in his calculations. He then began to argue telling me that I was wrong. And this guy was the "manager." This is the experience everyone I know has with these idiots who work in fast food — usually they're very arrogant, very stupid, and very uneducated and lack brainpower and mental ability of all kinds.
I just find it frustrating that even the Manager of this place couldn't do simple grade school addition and subtraction. Because the guy was so insistent and arrogant about his miscalculations and poor math skills, I just said forget it, he then insisted to give me like a nickel which he thought was the difference I was fussing about. Even though it was just a dollar, it's just the principle regarding the absolute stupidity and arrogance of these people. The guy still thought he was 'right' and that I was the one who was incorrect and that's just frustrating when you're an educated citizen who is dealing with middle aged people who are less intelligent mathematically than most 10 year olds.
This isn't just a one time thing — fast food workers are constantly proving that intellectually they are one step below others, while believing that they are actually really smart and are right in their ignorant decisions or ideas. Many fast food workers are really arrogant or maybe just angry people and tend to take their anger out on customers. I for one am just tired of dealing with their arrogance and stupidity and most of them just need to grow up, get some class, manners, customer service skills and a GOOD education...
