On Friday I went to Burger King after dropping my children off with their deadbeat dad. I ordered one of your super value combos.
I noticed that the person next to me in line got a 25 percent discount. I asked him why he got a discount. He said because he was in the US army. I immediately went to the counter and asked if registered nursed get discounts.
The employee went to ask her manager. The manager came, and when he was me he was immediately disappointed and sighed as if talking to me is a hassle. He apologized and told me that they only give discounts to police officers, firefighters and those that serve in the army. I told him that this was discrimation and that I would not be leaving until I get a discount.
He apologized and again told me that the discount was only for the following people. I told him that if I did not get a discount that I would hold up the line. He told me that he would call the police if I did not leave the line. He was being very stubborn.
He was keeping other people waiting,(including innocent starving children). To top it off the other customers were angry at me when he was the one being selfish. They told me to get out of line because the were waiting. I told them that I am a registered nurse.
I am very important to the community, as important as police officers and firefighters and this was discrimation before I left. I then cancelled my order and left. He returned my money and sarcasly said have a good day.
Burger King needs to learn customer service. I feel that I should get the money back for the meal, plus free value coupons and a gift card for the embarassment I went through.
Also you need to change your policy which discriminates against registered nurses.
Just because we make much more money than your managers does not mean we need to be treated less than human. After all we are human beings as well, just better off than your poor paid minimum wage employees who deserve this low pay because of the poor way they treat others better than them.
