How to make a drive-thru food chain nutts!!!!

Friday, February 28, 2014

My hubs and I had to run errands today and we went to Sam's Club for a few things. We then went to Arby's for lunch. My hubs favorite place to eat, but we only go if on that side of town most the time. Anyway I ordered his food and told them I wanted 2 Beef n Cheddar WITHOUT the bun. It was rather amusing to watch them figure out HOW to manage that. Asked me several times if I wanted a double meat and what did I mean. MEAT...NO BUN!!! Oh!!! You mean JUST the meat and the cheese and sauce on the side. It really was comical. Not sure why that was so hard. Anyway...0 carbs for my lunch!!!! YES!!!! Today has been a good day and I ate quite a lot. Yet kept the carbs way down. LOVE low-carb!!! Had a lot of protein, which sometimes I don't load up on. I also sometimes do the same at Chic fil A. Get just the patty. They are much more accommodating. Y'all have a wonderful weekend.

    Just try watching them give change if they enter the wrong dollar amount....They can't count either, unless the cash register does it for them... Lol

    I work at McDonalds and we have people order that way all the time. It isn't that big of deal.

    I totally understand what you are saying. I always have to say no bun as I have to eat gluten free (Celiac disease) But usually try to order things that don't normally have a bun because they can cross contaminate and in my case that is a "bad thing."
We actually don't eat out much and not at fast food restaurants.
Glad you were able to make them understand. WOOHOO!!! Keep up your great work!!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Blessings and hugs,

    LOL Good for you!
So far as the Chick-Fil-A ... have you tried their nuggets? they're awesome... and they're *real meat*. It's one of the few fast-food places we'll go. I'm so disgusted they gave up their carrot-and-raisin salad! Those two things were my stand-bys! The bums.

    It's because kids these days have zero common sense! What, meat with no bun? Duhhhh, how do I do that? I got into an argument with the manager of a Taco Bell here years ago (when we had a TB), I got things in my order that I hadn't ordered- he informed that they were correct because he'd made them himself (he was all of 21 or 22). I siad that may indeed be the case but you made the WRONG items, I didn't order _ (don't recall what is was), I ordered _. He made what I wanted, I gave him back what I didn't and he threw the new order across the counter at me. Naturally I call the district person and ate FREE TB for a month. I like Arby's, we have no such things here, I wish we had one. When friends go out of town we often ask for Beef & Cheddars (and SAUCE) to be brought back. emoticon

  I know what you mean, I usually throw the buns away myself!
Once I ordered it that way and the manager gave me a discount!
You know I had to ring the bell on my way out!

    Hardee's mushroom burger w/o the bun really baffles them too!

    My husband eats low carb, so I know what this is like. He's got one particular McDonald's he likes, because they are used to to his JUST sausage and eggs breakfast order.
