Okay...is it me or

are people who work for fastfood/customer service places getting stupider??? OMG...so I went to Target yesterday and I bought some stuff to do a French tip manicure, that went off without a hitch. Then I went to Dominoes(which is right across the street from Hollywood Video ) and...

Me: I would like a Medium Deep Dish pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms, and jalapenos
Her: Okay, what would you like?
Me: (roll eyes) A medium deep dish pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms, and jalapenos
Her: Okay, you want a deep dish pizza?
Me: Yes
Her: What size, large?
Me: Uh...no, a medium
Her: What would you like on that?
Me: pepperoni, mushrooms, and jalapenos
Her: We don't have jalapenos
Me: Then why are they an option on things to order?
Her: ...
Me: Uh, okay, then pepperoni and mushroom.

Then I added a quick, "with cheese, obviously" I was afraid that she would tell them JUST pepperoni and mushroom"

Me: Oh yes, and a 20 oz. Barqs
Her: Okay

So I get rung up and since it was going to take a little while I decided to walk over to Hollywood video and go get a movie. I ended up waiting in line for about 5 minutes to ask if they had a movie since I had not seen it in the comedy section. They didn't have it. Okay, quite irritating. Why don't they have a computer like a library where you can check to see if they have that movie?

So I walk over to Blockbuster. I went to the comedy section and didn't see it, but thought maybe it was in another section so waited about 10 minutes in line to ask. Hahaha...OMG if that child in front me was mine I would have back-handed her. She was damn rude and disrespectful to her mother! She storms into the store (she is in grade school) and throws out her hand and says, "I need your car keys". Her mom doesn't reply, so then she starts yelling, "I need your car keys" Her mom says, "Why?" then the daughter says, "Because the car alarm is going off!" the mom hands the daughter the car keys and the daughter snatches!!!! snatches!!! the keys from her mom and storms back out. Stupid brat.

Anyway, I finally get to the front desk and while he is looking up the movie I want I was looking at the TV and it was advertising that Blockbuster "supposedly" carries. He was unsuccessful locating my movie, so I asked, "Do you have the Chronicles of Narnia"? Since I had just seen that it was a movie that Blockbuster "claimed" to carry. He looked it up and said, "No" GOD you have got to be kidding me...Why the hell would a place taunt you with clips from a movie they don't even carry??? Honestly...it was quite disappointing.

I go back to Dominoes to get my pizza. The guy hands me my pizza and I said,

Me: I also ordered a 20 oz Barqs.
Him: Oh, uh, we don't have 20 oz Barqs
(this is unbelievable)
Me: Then why do you have it in your menu?
Him: Well, for whatever reason we only have 1 liter of Barqs

I suppose I should have been a bitch and made him give the 1 liter without extra charge but I opted for a Sprite.

(shake head) Then I asked him, "If you don't have certain items on your menu you shouldn't put them on. If you have no control over what goes on the menu and this particular branch doesn't carry that item you should let people know that you don't have it. I hate Sprite." Then I walked out.

(sigh) That's my little vent...

Did the pizza at least taste good?

At least you could understand each other.
This one time my gf tried to order chinese for delivery and she spent 20 mins on the phone just trying to tell the lady her name and address.
Think of it this way: If they were smart they'd probably have a better job. Of course I had a fast food job when I was younger, which I promptly quit when I graduated from HS.
Taco Bell and Starbucks seem to fuck my orders up all the time. and then there was the time Dominos fucked up my pizza and thought I said "extra sausage" when I said "extra sauce" Now that was a nasty pizza. I always forgive them, and usually don't get mad.. except the time taco bell took 3 tries to get our order right. My gf sends email to the company and we get free food coupons.. maybe you should try that.
