    Customer Service?!?!?!

    I just have to share this experience because I found it irritating.

    I went thought the Carl's Jr. drive through on a Friday at 2 in the afternoon, placed my order and drove to the window. I paid my $6.92 total with a five and a pair of ones. The girl at the window hands me a nickel and states "I am out of pennies and owe you three cents." OK so at this point I think she will go to another register to get the pennies. She goes and hands me my shake and then goes to get my burger and fires, and pennies I assume. AS I am waiting I get the feeling that I for some reason get to pay 3 more cents then everyone else so I reach into my change stash in my car and get 2 pennies. She comes back with my burger and no pennies and asks if I want ketchup. I say yes. She comes back with some ketchup and I now assume that she is not going to go out of her way to get me my 3 cents. I hand her the two pennies and she just stares at me for a second then says..... "no, I owe you 3 cents." My reply.... "I know, I will give you these two pennies, then you will owe me 5 cents, or a nickel. It takes her about 5 seconds and I swear I can here the gears grinding as she processes this information. (must have gone to a LAUSD public school) Needless to say I got my nickel.

    Now I know some of you are thinking "dude, its only 3 cents". Most of the time I would agree with you but the total lack of effort to find 3 pennies and I wasn't even asked it if was OK if I didn't get the pennies. Her assumption that I didn't care was off putting to say the least. That and what store runs out of pennies at 2 in the afternoon? That and was the store out of pennies or just her register?

    I will admit to being a stickler about customer service and have noticed a decline in the past few years at least locally. (Southern California) I have worked in the food service industry and other service industries so its not like I don't see things from the other side. Now I admit my standards for Carl's Jr are not high at all, hell I am happy when my order is correct considering I had a friend get a burger missing the patty once, but this irritated me.

    Does anyone else have wonderful customer service stories?

    Sounds to me like you are a huge donkey for caring about this in the first place, let alone start a thread about it. 98% of the people who read this agree with me.

    Because even though it says a coin will buy it, you are supposed to act like you aren't cheap and give them a dollar!
