At the In'N'Out Burger (INOB) the other day:

 

Me: Hi

Them:  Welcome Sir, can I take your order?"

Me:  I'd like a number three, animal style, the fries well done with no salt please.

Them:  Repeats the order perfectly, including the secret menu items.  "Will that be for here?"

Me:  Yes.

Them:  Hands me a paper cup,  "Thank you sir, your number is 36, and is there anything else I can do?"

Me:  "No thank you."

 

AT the CVS drugstore the other day:

 

Me:  Hi, can you tell me where the Total cereal that is on sale might be?"

Them:  Huh?

Mr: Breakfast cereal?

Them:  Scratching of chin. "I think it's on aisle six, but maybe you oughta look."

Me:  Thanks

Them:  No Problem (the Dude ending was understood and therefore silent.)

 

Now for the part that I did not mention:  The young lady at INOB was all of 17, a child of Spanish-speaking parents (I assume since the store was in a very Spanish speaking area of Salinas CA).  She had been given customer service instructions and followed them--the hallmark of an excellent business.  The CVS man was thirty, and should have known better.  PS I found the cereal after some searching.

    Anadyr:

     

    I grew up on INOB in the San Gabriel Valley. Back then they only employed men, no women allowed behind the counter. Ah, the good old days.

      Never knew that Harry Snyder was that way, but now the company is run by his granddaughter!

        I was at one time a spell checker at the M&M factory.

    Love In-N-Out Burgers!  Wish they were on the East coast!
