So I was on my lunch today and decided to walk voer to the nearby Burger King, which I do often on my lunch break. I went in and there's this group of teenagers (yes, I know I'm one, but htey were younger than me most likely) sitting at a table jsut being generally loud and rude and stupid. So eventually, while I'm sitting there eatin, one of them says something like "They made my fries too salty!" and another one goes "Go up there and complain and they'll give yo ua free King sized fry!" And so...he did just that! :eek: HE went up there, threw a hissy fit, got his money back, and free fries! :mad: What idiots, causin a big scene, cuz there's too much salt on their fries! There can NEVER be too much salt on fries I always say!

I have one problem with salt. If I have too much, my lips go numb.:o

well, while them being loud would be annoying, if they weren't satisfied with their food, i think they did have the right to take it up and complain about it. if they went about it in a bad manner, then thats one things. but if the customer thought there were too much salt on it, then its better that he took it up and complained about it then rather than going home and posting about it on planet feedback.

Right - definitely. I think he's talking about the malicious intent of the teens though (money back AND free king size fry). What's wrong with a simple replacement OR money back? Correct me if I'm wrong here, Jaden.

Er... don't French fries in Burger King come saltless, and you add the salt yourself? :confused:

If their fries were cold or something, I'd understand. But too much salt? You can scrape that off easily, no sense in wastin fries :D They were rude about it, the boy went up to the counter and, like I said, threw a hissy fit. He was sayin stuff like "What's wrong with you?!" and just throwing an all aroudn tantrum, then he came back laughing and gave them high fives. It was obviously just a joke and a prank to them.

see, i don't like burger king french fries, so i didn't really know that you add salt to them yourself. also, i wasn't aware of how the boys talked to the employees of burger king.

I don't think you add the salt yourself :confused: Mine had salt on them when I got them. It's just they generally don't put much on them I think. I know they put salt on them at least at that Burger King. But it still doesn't matter, that behaviour is uncalled for in any situation but espescially over something as trivial as salt :rolleyes: And as I said, it was obviously jsut some big joke/prank to them from the way they were acting.

UK Burger King fries come without salt. Sounds like the US market needs its arteries unclogging... :p

Now that people are "carb careful" or some shit, some restaurants put no salt on fries.
We must rise up and defend our salty, greasy, potatoey treats.

Does that feature drooling from the mouth?

Ya'll want some french fries? I personally prefer McD's to BK anyday of the week. While I'm not a salt fan, there's only two things I have to have salt on and hot french fries are one of them (the other being Tostitos.):angel:

:shuddering at the thought:

It's bad enough that I'm 27 and am already saying stuff to my nieces and nephews like, "When I was YOUR age, gas was this much, milk cost this, and blah blah blah..."

How much worse would it get in the next 73 years?

:runaway:

Why is it everybody who throws a huge fit always gets their way?! I understand they want to keep their customers happy but then how far is too far?

And thus is the problem with today's "Customer is always right" mentality, that some will on purpose complain about small stuff, so they can get more stuff, and for free, and they know that the company would rather do that, even for a bull complaint, than get any kind of negative feedback.

Makes you proud to be human, don't it? -.-

The other day, Friday, I think...anyhoo...

The comic Ziggy was just himself looking at a sign that reads, "The customer thinks they're right."

I want that in poster size.

I used to work in Burger King. When I worked there a year ago we did put salt on the french fries. If you think those kids were bad my manager threw some kids out for having sex in a far corner. That was bad. We blocked of that part of the restaurant and no one cleaned it for a couple of days until we got a new kid that didn't know what had happened until after we got him to clean it.

That gives whole new meaning to the term "have it your way". :eek:

Right, because there are certain sections in the potato fryer where the fries aren't as salty. Those fries came from the same place, unless they had started a new batch! That kid needs to be hit with the 'D'uh" Truck.
