The dialogue in today’s strip is absolutely real. I heard it at a local Burger King several months ago (which just goes to show how long I’ve waited before uploading this).

Basically, the manager of this particular Burger King is a fast-food stereotype: short, overweight, balding, pasty, and greasier than the hamburgers. The poor guy was probably in his mid-thirties but looked like he was ten years older. His staff consisted entirely of teenagers, and it was easy to see that they didn’t take this guy seriously. Case in point: With his manager standing right next to him, the teen running the register told the customer in front of me that the deluxe meal “came in this bullshit.” And the manager said nothing. The register drone really did ask for a break and really did give his reason as “‘Cause I’ve been here since four, muthafucka.” To his manager. In a restaurant full of customers. And all the manager said in reply was the meekest “Watch your mouth” I’ve ever heard.

Which to me is worthy of immortalizing in a comic. :)

Not a big fan of swearing or Burger King, but this kind of makes me want to go to one if this is the sort of hilarity that goes on. Food and entertainment!

(Although when I say not a fan of swearing, some jokes just aren't funny without it)

dude i miss having bosses like that not so much that you can curse AT them but that you can curse AROUND them Blockbuster was good times when i was working there as a teen, though i wonder if the fact that half the staff was high there was part of the reason :laughing:

I've had my fair share of managers lacking in the testicular fortitude department. It's quite disappointing when grown men can't keep spotty kids in check.

Having worked for a year at a fast-food joint some time ago, I know exactly the situation you're describing. Teenagers make terrible staff. Also the GM there was a complete pushover and looked sort of like the guy in the comic. And I would be lying if I said I never screamed profanities frequently in front of customers.

My question is what time it was when you heard this.... Totally used to this. I've worked at several food places and my personal favorite was a small local cafe, if the owner caught you swearing the best you could hope for was floor duty, the worst was bleaching the ceiling.

I remember that I used to hang out ALLOT at this Subway sandwich restaurant(Till I developed glutton or wheat intolerance) to draw on my sketch book and knew all the workers and manager there at the time. One time I showed up late in the day and the manager said to me "You're late!" and I said "I wanted to be late."
A kid was there and he was all impressed and looking at me like a hero.

That would be more funny if I actually worked for them. But they never hire me even though the place was like a second home to me. I did put in applications, but they don't hire me. Oh well! Their loss! I could have been like the Good Burger guy there too. "Welcome to the Subway, home of the Subway, can I take your order."
