Dairy Queen Worker Gets Sly Revenge With Chicken Strips

A Dairy Queen worker shared a sneaky tactic for dealing with mean customers: they give them small chicken strips and just a little bit of fries.

This cheeky move shows that some workers find small ways to get back at rude customers without them knowing. Here’s the complete story.

The Petty Chicken Strips

In a 31-second TikTok video, a user showcases a sly revenge on impolite customers at a food establishment. They selectively choose the smallest available chicken strips, placing just four tiny pieces into a take-out box.

When it comes to adding fries, they scoop up a bunch only to deliberately shake out all but two, placing the meager serving into the box.

The video ended with them nonchalantly closing the box and positioning it on the counter, poised for the unsuspecting, discourteous customer to receive their petty yet satisfying act of retaliation.

The video has sparked various reactions from viewers. Some found the subtle retaliation amusing, with comments like “They [don’t] deserve that massive fry,” while others offered alternative petty revenge tactics, such as giving all the burnt fries.

However, not everyone agreed with the worker’s actions. Some users expressed that such actions were grounds for termination, with remarks like “You should really get fired for that,” while others warned of potential backlash from the customer.

Navigating Customer Service Challenges in Fast Food Outlets

While these instances of subtle revenge can be seen as workers taking a stand against rude customers, they also open up a dialogue about the ethical considerations in customer service. Is it justified to alter a customer’s order as a form of payback for rudeness, or should workers uphold a standard of service regardless of customer demeanor? This grey area continues to be a discussion topic among workers and customers in the service industry. Fast-food employees often encounter various challenging situations with customers, some of which may be unintentionally created by the customers.

For instance, while a customer might think they are being helpful or polite by not correcting a mistake in the order immediately, it makes it harder for the employee to fix it once the customer reaches the window.

Another seemingly polite habit that can be problematic is handing over extra money with the expectation of getting a specific change in return, which can be difficult for employees to manage, especially during busy hours.

Moreover, some customers, in an attempt to be considerate, wait at the drive-through window instead of pulling to the side or into designated parking, believing it makes things easier for employees.

However, this disrupts the flow of orders and contradicts the established system meant to enhance efficiency. Another habit that might seem courteous but can be a hindrance is ordering for a large group through the drive-through, which can slow down the service for everyone else.

Employees suggest ordering inside the restaurant or placing an order in advance. These scenarios highlight the importance of understanding and respecting the operational flow of fast-food outlets to ensure a smooth and pleasant experience for both customers and employees.
