Customer Service with a Smile?


I have become addicted to Checker’s hot dogs. I know, I know… don’t judge me.

So I go to the drive-thru and order three hotdogs (they are just 99cents). I am greeted by a rude, ghetto worker.

Checkers Worker: Yeah.
Corey Keith: Excuse me.
Checkers Worker: Yeah, can I take yo order.
Corey Keith: Three hot dogs, please.
Checkers: Three chili dogs?
Corey Keith: Three hot dogs.
Checkers Worker: Huh? Nobody orders hot dogs. $3.21. Drive around.

And I drive around and wait ten minutes while the car in front of me gets three bags of food. When I finally get to the window, I am greeted by weave all over the place and two gold teeth blinging hard.

Corey Keith: How much is it?
Checkers Worker: Huh?
Corey Keith: How much is the order?

Checkers Worker: I told you 3.21.
I hand it over and take the bag.

Corey Keith: Excuse me. Can I have some ketchup?
Checkers Worker: We ain’t got no ketchup.

How can a fast food restaurant not have ketchup? I am almost sure there was ketchup in the back but she did not want to get it.

Why? Why can I not get decent customer service in my neighborhood? I know, I know… don’t tell me… some one already said it in response to my Shirley Franklin post.

Checkers sell hot dogs? Not up here they don't. I must check their menu extra carefully next time. I swear they don't...

Hey hey hey.... they *could* possibly have run out of ketchup, as impossible as it was to believe. LOL. I worked at Baskin-Robbins a while back, and we ran out of ice cream cones once; cups another time; and cherries some other time. Try to tell people who bought sundaes that they can't get their cherries! People go nuts over that! Crazy stuff.

Take it to the man: call
Henry Lenard of Checkers/MARC Public Relations, 412-471-1090, ext. 128. Tell him the date and time and the lack of ketchup and the unprofessional rudeness, lack of hygiene and unkept hairness of the situation. Then call back next day and reiterate. I got your back.

I think it's Atlanta. I have never experienced service like this until I came to Atlanta.

sidenote-I went to Burger King and they didn't have Burgers. I died laughing.

checkers hot dogs can be addictive for sure... next time you need a fix go to the opne on the corner of tenth and spring.... day shift they seem to be fresher..... but they do hit the spot

come on now Corey... $3.21 for a meal. You can't go to fast food expecting 4 star service.

C. Baptiste-Williams said...

think about how many $3.21 meals you would have to sale to pay rent... you would have an attitude too

LoL this is hilarious but shit it is fast food so and at a place like checkers it could have been a very long day by that time. Give the ghetto gurl some slack. As long as it isn't a sit down dinner and you have to tip. Shit at least she got your order right.

LMAO!! I am only surprised you didn't get shot arguing with her while someone runs off with your three hot dogs. I love Atlanta for that.
