I sure could get you a to-go bag, but they're RIGHT in front of you!

Hot Buns: "I hate it when people ask me, 'Can I get that to go?' Because the bags are right
in front of them. Now, if their hands are full, I understand. I'll do it for them. But a lot of times I have gloves on and my hands are messy, so I'll either have to get the bag messy or have to take the gloves off, and it's so easy
for them to just do it. And the bags are right there
. People don't see with their eyes."
Pet Peeve #2
"We take people's names with their orders, so it's the people who have an easy name and will say, 'Nick, N-I-C-K.' I'm like, 'Come on
! I can spell.'" Pet Peeve #3
"Some local kids come in here and try to act like we do free sodas. They just grab a cup and say, 'Aw hey, I thought you guys did free sodas.' No. We do not do 'free sodas.'"
