5: The Troubling First Day
First-day jitters are rough on anyone, let alone someone starting at the drive-thru window. Reddit user rah-kooc details having to train a newbie on an awkward day “Used to work at McDonald’s back in the day. I was training a new girl and told her to hand the man at the window his drink. The window opens, and I notice the adult man driving is wearing a bib…weird, but to each their own. As the new girl reaches out her hand to pass the man his drink, he just starts vomiting on himself, violently so…there was splatter.
“The new girl stood there in shock, so I grabbed her and pulled her back. The window automatically closed and the man eventually drove away. Another weird instance is when I was handing a man a small chocolate shake, I kid you not a small monkey wearing a diaper hopped up on the man’s seat and reached out and took the shake from me. The worst part is, none of my coworkers believed me because I was the only one who saw the monkey.”
