    fast food ?????

    what would you class as "fast" when it comes to food ?

    the reason i ask is that i stood in Preston today and waited almost 15 mins to be served in a bloody McDonalds

    now i know some of you might say why i dint just go else where but i decided to hang about and see just how long it took young Becky with no ****ing manners what so ever to serve me

    so as well as thier food not being "fast" they could also maybe do with training their staff in customer service skills like "please" and "thank you"

    It's not as if they get paid sh*t money either, mind you if I worked in McDonalds I'd probably have difficulty raising a smile.

    true

    the smile i could handle not getting but when you say please and thank you to someone serving you then you would expect it back to be honest

    I find the same thing in supermarkets. I worked in one all through my uni days and I cant imagine not being polite to customers yet today it appears to be the norm.

    Why on earth would you want to eat Maccys anyway is beyond me I'd find more appetising dog turds on the street.

    Just my opinion of course. But most "fast" food places are employing ignorant school rejects and their managers do not promote the 'serve the customer with a smile' philosophy. True 'customer service' is pretty much lost these days, long gone are the days someone is greatful for purchasing from them and not someone else. Not its a case of your priviledged if you get served.

    I frequent a certain chip shop and a am normally greeted, with 'A couple of minutes on the chips' when asking for a supper. I am then delighted to be waiting 20 mins. **** me but what kind of a chip shop has no chips!!!

    Only reason I go as there is no local alternative and the food is pricey but not too shabby.

    On another note, all the staff (all ages) at my local Sainsburys are polite, friendly and helpful, which is why I go there to buy my food.

    Fast food doesnt exist, its a myth.

    Firstly its not fast and secondly its not food.

    I think companies use this saying to draw people in
