This is not asking much, just please do it.

2. Don't complain when your fries aren't crispy enough.

3. Order a drink carrier when you order your food.

NOT at the window. (This just makes things move smoother).

4. Don't be mad at us when your card declines and you have to use a different method of payment.

Not our fault.

5. Don't complain to or argue with employees about restaurant policies.

Also not our fault, and nothing we can do to change it, so you're really wasting time.

6. If we accidentally get your order wrong, we aren't targeting you.

We serve thousands a day and make mistakes.

7. Don't be angry when you're trying to use an expired coupon.

(?????????????????)

8. Just because we work in fast food does not mean we don't attend school or have real ambitions.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F15%2F6362010479785950611365465993_fast%2520food%25208.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=557&h=181efcde9228f0368491c86d88f5a913a41c8eca5ae93c1f837e2856b42c191e&size=980x&c=2691556492 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F15%252F6362010479785950611365465993_fast%252520food%2525208.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D557%26h%3D181efcde9228f0368491c86d88f5a913a41c8eca5ae93c1f837e2856b42c191e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2691556492%22%7D" expand=1]

(Really!!)

9. Don't get mad at us because the prices are the way they are.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F15%2F636201049299820550-1619793230_fast%2520food%25209.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=485&h=d8adaec5a499a02c7281c48a1acc11a791568f5798f87178c10d8f6488b207d9&size=980x&c=2143142385 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F15%252F636201049299820550-1619793230_fast%252520food%2525209.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D485%26h%3Dd8adaec5a499a02c7281c48a1acc11a791568f5798f87178c10d8f6488b207d9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2143142385%22%7D" expand=1]

10. If employees are supposed to make your drinks before you sit down (Chick Fil A), PLEASE WAIT TO GET THEM BEFORE YOU SIT DOWN.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F15%2F636201052379526396352300381_fast%2520food%252010.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=243&h=cb5af6c009c12051c7c008fc996c4d670e8968392db9f774a4e1a3e01256d86c&size=980x&c=3238069961 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F15%252F636201052379526396352300381_fast%252520food%25252010.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D243%26h%3Dcb5af6c009c12051c7c008fc996c4d670e8968392db9f774a4e1a3e01256d86c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3238069961%22%7D" expand=1]

Employees have to do other things and don't have time to hunt you down to deliver your drinks.

11. BE KIND.

Employees can be having a great day and it can really ruin their joy when someone is hateful. Always treat people with kindness even if you're having a rough day or if a mistake is made.

Keep these things in mind when visiting your next fast food restaurant!! I love my job, regardless of the bad rep working in fast food has.

Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side.
