hey everyone...i just found this community and, let me tell you, i am very happy to have done so.
ive worked at a tcby in texas for the past 10 months, and my yogurt-serving career has definitley had its ups and downs.
so...what are your favorite (im sarcastic, i cant help it...) things customers consistently ask/or say to you?
some of mine are:
******when asked if when they said vanilla, if they wanted vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt...(and i always point to the dipping cabinent and the taylor machines) "uhh i dont know, whats the difference?"
******when asked if they would like the small, regular, or large serving of yogurt/ice cream in their waffle cone..."just give me whatever fits in there." or "just give me that one." gahhhh, all three of the sizes fit in this cone...that is why i asked you. and i planned on giving you this cone...you asked for it, remember? that is why it is in my hand. duh.
******when people say "i want white chocolate mousse." and then look at you smugly, or turn around and start chatting with someone theyre with, or walk away to get a table or use the restroom...yeah, im not sure if you know this ma'am-sir but you have to tell me what you want me to put your yogurt in. unless of course you just want me to squirt the WCM into my cupped palm and hand it to you at the register...and even then i need to know approx. how much you want so i know how to charge you. kthanks.
those are just three of the things that annoy me the most...anyone got anymore?
i promise ill post on this tonight AFTER i get home from ye ol' ice cream shoppe..
BUT THANK YOU FOR JOINING.
no one has posted here in .. ever?
we need to get it kickin again!
Yeah I think we really do need to get it kickin' :)
Yes, I definitely agree with this one: when people say "i want white chocolate mousse." and then look at you smugly, or turn around and start chatting with someone theyre with, or walk away to get a table or use the restroom...
ARGHH they can be soo annoying!
Welcome to the community. I work in a TCBY in NY, for almost 7 years!
i HATEhatehatehateHATE that crap about not telling you what they want it in .. or they'll say "small vanilla" and by default you go to make it in a cup, and they pinch a frickin fit and say "I WANTED A *CONE*.."
.. sorry lady/sir, my crystal ball is in the back because im not allowed to read it infront of customers .. therefore I HAD NO G-DING CLUE HOW YOU WANTED YOUR YOGURT DELIVERED TO YOUR PIEHOLE.
i cant stand when customers hand me back their sample cups.
or when customers tell me how much they hate a certain flavor .. how gross they think it is.
.. thanks, glad you enjoy it! be sure to come again!
when customers cant pronounce shiver/call it a blizzard/call it a "swirl this''[as read on the translite]/blech.
i know we're not ALL rocket scientists, but please. please please please, and thank you.
sigh. okay, im done being a bitter employee ;oX
EWW I HATE WHEN THEY HAND BACK TASTER CUPS!!! GROSS.
Or when they see how small a small shiver is (once you've started making it) and they then ask for a medium instead.
There are so many other things too.
yeah, used taster cups are disgusting...especially when the person sucks and slobbers all over them to get every last drop of yogurt out.
and sometimes, if they have the decency to hold on to their little sample cup, i later find them on the counter by the register, or on a table, or on the cake book stand.
we have a gazillion trash cans in the store. USE ONE.
i totally agree that we should get this community "kickin" again! i have been soooo incredibly busy with SOOOO much crap lately... but i'm glad we are gettin more members!
for the love of yogurt,

I hate it when they watch you make the whole shiver and when you get done they say "Is that Chocolate? I wanted Golden Vanilla"
Or when they come with a list of 3 shivers, a smoothie or two and a banana split. They dont really know what the person wanted on or in it, they want to call them and you close in about 30 seconds
TCBY IS THE BEST! Thank you all for working there to provide such great stuff!
Hi I work at the TCBY in rock hill and it blows - I have been there off and on since 98. Boy, we get some stupid customsers too...
