I work in Fast Food. I've noticed differences between black people and white people who come through
This is coming from me, a biracial guy (half white/half black), and my personal experiences in working fast food.

Our drink options are: Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Root Beer, Dr. Pepper, Hi-C Fruit Punch, and Light Lemonade.

- Majority of black people order Hi-C Fruit Punch.
- Majority of white people order Coke/Diet Coke.

The rest of the drink options are a random toss up between the few that don't fit into the majority.

We also carry a few non-fountain drink options: Sweet tea and Un-sweet tea.

- Majority of black people who order tea order sweet tea. In fact, I can only recall two black people, in the time that I've worked there (and I always work drive-thru where the majority of the people come), order un-sweet tea.

- Majority of white people order Un-sweet tea. Although, there is more leeway within the white fast food test subjects in their selection between sweet or un-sweet tea.

Easiness of orders: (Despite the fact that anyone can be rather irritating)

- White people: Seem to be able to order more quickly and more precisely. Tend to say "Thank you" more often. Tend to complain less, and, if they do, they seem more reluctant as a sign of respect to not make a big deal of something petty. Although, are more likely to not come back if we forget a pretty obvious item; such as a drink with the combo. White people have a more pleasant ordering voice (and this makes a difference when you've had a slew of rude orders). I always feel more appreciation from white people compared to black people.

- Black people: Slow, slow, slow orderers! You may think that I'm racist but, after many encounters I have had in fast food, these are the conclusions I have made from the majority of orders I have taken. Sometimes I sense that they are intentionally taking their time just because they know they can. Also, they ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS change their order. Here is a typical conversation I have with them:
Black customer: "I'll have number.......................................................​..........................Fo---Fi--NO! number 8 combo. WAIT. I'll just go ahead and get number 4 combo."
Me: "Alright, what size would you--"
Black customer: "NO! Scratch that. Keep the number 8 combo!"
Me: "O..ok. What size?"
Black customer: "Small."
Me:"What kind of drink would you like?"
Black customer: "Fruit punch"
Me:"Anything else?"
Black customer:" Um...........................................................​.............................................................​.............. (1 minute later I hear them on the cell phone talking about something unrelated to ordering)......."
Me: "H-hello?"
Black customer: "Yeah that's it!
"Me: "Okay, your total comes to $7.56, thank you!"
Black customer:"$7.56?!?! Hell no, lemme just get your dollar menu chicken sandwhich and value fries, and that'll be all for me (they pull up without me even giving them their total)"

Black guys mumble too much. I'm constantly asking them to repeat themselves. When I ask them to repeat themselves they immediately assume I just said, "Fuck your mom!" and get all pissy. Other times, they won't even TRY to speak louder or more clearly. Then when their order comes out wrong they get pissed off. The women ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS have something wrong with their food. Our fries will have just came up and they'll honk their horn and say they want fresh fries. The meat doesn't taste right. Their soda doesn't taste right. Their fries are too salty. Their fries aren't salty enough. The sandwich bun doesn't taste right. Their chicken nugget are cold. Their chicken nuggets don't taste fresh enough. The list goes on. This goes on all night for 8 hrs, and by the time the night is over I'm ready to jump off of a cliff.

If they order a shitload of food, they will sit at the window and open every single sandwich and inspect it while there is a line of cars behind them. I rarely witness a white person complaining about their fries. Our fries are usually always fresh, so no wonder. It is like black people are never satisfied. If they order a flavored tea (that we make with un-sweet tea) they will complain that the tea isn't sweet enough.

This is only grazing the surface, if I told you everything you would be mentally worn.

What validates my experiences even more is that my manager, whom is a black man married to a black woman, agrees with me completely. He's a preacher and he's always talking about how difficult black people are. His famous line is, "Who's holding up the line? You already know!"

This can all be explained by the fact that blacks are lower SES. Even the increased attraction to sugar. Low SES is stressful and chronic stress creates sugar cravings because sugar gives a quick energy burst.

It wasn't always like this. But after something keeps happening repeatedly, you catch on. Once you catch on, you keep catching on to other things. I'm not the only one at my job who realizes this.

Re: I work in Fast Food. I've noticed differences between black people and white people who come through
This is actually really insightful. Please give us some more details.

:incrediblethread:
 Quoting: J_Tribble


1. If a white person complains, they just want what was messed up. When a black person complains, they want what was messed up and then something extra for the hassle (we're supposed to be perfect I guess).
2. If I don't speak slow enough or wait a certain amount of seconds between questions, a lot of black people pull up and complain that they didn't like the way I took their order (I guess I'm rushing them when they are taking eternity to order and there are cars wrapped around the building).
3. Black people are the only people I have heard that say they want all of their food dropped fresh at the moment they get to the window.
4. I've noticed a lot of black people like to run you. At the window, they'll ask for ketchup. When you hand them ketchup, they'll ask for an extra water. When you hand them an extra water, they'll ask for sauce and more ketchup. Then after that, they'll need more napkins. I'm not shitting you, this happens ALL the time! And it's only black people.

I know this sounds all so racist, but it's just keen observation.

OP, looks like you take over the black side of the family tree for working in Fast Food.







I don't know about the white people being more polite. I worked years doing tech support/cust service over the phone and whites were always the most irritating and difficult. Sure, they had a more pleasant tone but they were more apt to complain, expected everything to be perfect, demanded resolution instantly, quick at requesting to speak to a supervisor and just plain talked as if their words carried weight and was listened to by the CEO of the company. LOL.

Working in pizza delivery, I can confirm all of these behaviors. But it is definitely socio-economic and not cultural. If you live in a very poor white neighborhood, you will see all of this and more.

Very poor people and very wealthy people both act like this. Middle class people tend o be more polite and reasonable.

I used to work at Tim Horton's and a lot of Somalians would come through and order 10+ sugars and 10+ creams in their small coffee. I'd always ask if they'd like coffee with their sugar. Lol, that's disgusting. I know I'm not the only one that notices things like this. You have to walk in my shoes (those of you who think I'm lying) to understand.

Re: I work in Fast Food. I've noticed differences between black people and white people who come through
I never thought about it before, but you're right. And trust me I'm no racist.

When I pick a checkout queue at the supermarket there will be one with a white woman with a huge trolley full of shopping and one with black women (they never seem to shop alone) with a few things. I always go behind the white woman, because they're shopping will go through quickly with no hold-ups, packed, paid for and gone - the black women will cause a delay over one thing or another, changing an item for something else, taking forever to pay, arguing over something, then very very slowly packing their shopping and eventually strolling off. Always.

Yeah, but I mainly work with white people. One of those things that make you go HMMMMMMMMMMM. It may have something to do with my age, too. Since I'm only 19 and I'm in college, fast food seems like a nice part time job instead of just living off of government money your whole way through. I'm just speaking from experience, food service + black people = HELL.
