Just for fun!! Have you ever been to a fast food restaurant and it ran out of a particular food? Burgers, Chicken, Fish, etc.

This recently happened to me, I decided to treat myself to a Burger, from one of the few places I will go to for fast food. Got in drive-thru line, and after more than 10 minutes, finally got to the menu/order board. Placed order, THEN the "hired help" told me "Um, we are out of hamburger meat". OK, great, so I'll make another selection. Not my preferred choice, but it was late, and I was very hungry. So, I make my selection, and hear people talking in background "Do we have this?? I would have left, but the design of the drive thru does not allow for "escape". Has anyone ever ordered something at one of the fats food places, only to be told, "Sorry, we're out of food". :-(

Fast and food and not two words I put together, so no. I have too much respect for my body.

We have a chain fast food joint in town that runs out of "meat" almost daily, I'm not joking! Now they don't get a delivery truck daily so it makes you wonder what you might be eating, especially when it normally goes right through you. But needless to say I won't eat there anymore.

In my younger days I worked at BK and we started running out of things. turns out the night manager was letting the high s school kids do the inventories and things weren't being ordered. we ran out of napkins, ketchup packets, and some food items. The day manager sent someone to the near by grocery store for napkins, we had bulk ketchup to put in cups for the fries, and had to say, sorry we are out of the rest....

Hmmm... <br/>Interesting, thanks ! I "wonder" IF that's what may have happened at the BK I was trapped at. The "groan" ups pretending to be managers, and the teenagers pretending to be the "grown-up". Either way, I WON'T be going back to THAT particular location. As much as I HATE "big box stores" (w-mart) at least the BK is inside the store, no drive-thru and...

Dairy Queen was closed during business hours. The computer shut down on them. I guess it's, no shirt, no shoes, no computer, no service. I didn't add the mask, we all know to wear one. Nice poll. I hope I didn't run out of things to say.

BarryN, LOL! Well I guess the computers being shut down is a good modern reason the business can't be open. Everything is controlled by a "chip" somehow. Not like in the old days where anyone worth their weight needed to know how to actually, write out an order by hand, on a piece of paper, count money, and give change/coins&bills back. :-)
