Don't Over-Sweetie Me
So I'm at the McDonalds drive-thru in Fishers for lunch this week. I am greeted by the automated, "Hi would you like to order a fruit smoothie, order when ready." I place my order. The actual person working repeats my order and says, "is everything on the screen correct, sweetie?"
Sweetie? Ok, I suppose that's cute. Yes, I reply. "Ok sweetie, pull up to the first window" she says.
That's sweetie #2. I'm on the verge of being over-sweetied at this point. I want people to be nice and I believe 100%+ in great customer service, but this sweetie business, it seems a bit over the top to me.
So, I drive on up to the window. She greets me, "That's $3.60 sweetie." Oh. No. She. Didn't.
A third sweetie. Quit it. Seriously.
I pay her and anxiously wait to see....will she?????
Oh you betya. "Thanks sweetie, pull on up."
QUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT IT!!!!!!!!! No more sweetie. So I couldn't resist. I said, "thanks a bunch sweetie, see ya next time."
I'm sure she didn't catch my sarcasm but she needed to.
