Burger King - General
WAUSAU, WISCONSIN -- My complaint takes place over a number of visits to Burger King (all at the same restaurant) and over a couple of years. The first complaint is that on a couple of visits, I received moldy sandwiches. The second visit was just last week, at which time I ordered one of their cones. When I came to the window to pay, I gave the clerk 2 quarters, at which time she asked me if I wanted my change back. I was so taken off guard that I stammered out that I didn't. I had in mind that McDonald's does have a basket in which you can tell them to put the change in there for charity use. Anyway, I took my cone and left.
Then today really tops everything! I ordered a fish sandwich (no fries), a raspberry smoothie and a cone. When the total came up on the screen, it was for $14.+. Now I knew this couldn't be right and mentioned it to the clerk and asked her to over what I had ordered with me and the price of each thing. She said I had ordered a chicken sandwich at which time I stopped her as I had really ordered a fish sandwich. She then said, "Oh, that was for the car in front of you." OK, now that was straightened out but we aren't done yet!
I proceeded to the pick-up window with one car ahead of me that had already been there for awhile, while I was straightening things out at the order spot. I waited......and waited...and waited. By this time there were several cars lined up behind me. I finally got to the window and thought OK, finally I'll get my food and be on my way. Nope! I waited....and waited...and waited some more. It probably took me half an hour all told to get through this line!
A woman finally came to the window but did not open it and totally ignored me. I honked my horn, thinking maybe they didn't know I was there. Nope again! She completely ignored me. I again honked my horn. I think I did this 3 times. She finally opened the window and asked me what I wanted. I told her, "my food would be nice". She said, "Oh, it'll be here." Then someone did come up with the smoothie and I took it but then she wanted my money and I told her I wasn't going to do that until I had the rest of my food. She said that was OK and closed the window. Then someone else came up with the cone and attempted to give it to me and I said that I didn't want it until I had the rest of the food as it might melt while I was waiting for the fish sandwich.
He was kind of confused and turned to someone else inside the store at which time they finally produced my food, I took it and the cone and then went to pay for it. They then told me it was free for the aggravation I had endured. Now, that was fine, but I still feel something should be done about this whole thing. This shoddy service, etc. has been going on for a few years now.
