KRISTEN'S STORY - WINNER
McDONALD'S EMPLOYEES REVEAL MOST ANNOYING THINGS CUSTOMERS DO.
Anyone who’s worked at a fast food restaurant will tell you that customers can often be rather irritating, which can make an already thankless job even more dreadful. Well, now a group of McDonald’s workers have taken to Reddit to reveal the most annoying things customers do, and there’s a good chance you may be guilty of some of them.
Irritating customer behavior includes:
- Expecting crew members to make something that’s not on the menu - despite what you’ve heard, there isn’t a secret menu.
- Ordering complicated “special requests”
- Hacking the system to get fresh fries – people ask for fries without salt thinking they’ll get fresh ones, but employees say it’s easier to just ask for fresh fries.
- Placing a drive-thru order in a noisy car
- Dawdling by the cash register – They want to get people out fast, so once you’ve ordered step aside.
- Dumping change when it comes time to pay
- Acting condescending towards crew members
- Leaving a big mess – come on, clean up after yourself.
- Forgetting to think through your order
- Cutting the line at the drive thru
- Failing to control their kids

VALEDICTORIAN MAKES CROWD CHEER UNTIL HE TOLD THEM HE WAS KIDDING
Valedictorian Ben Bowling wanted to share some words of wisdom during his graduation speech.
And they were great words...until they weren't.
"This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google," Bowling said in his speech. "'Don't just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table.' — Donald J. Trump."
The crowd burst into applause.
"Just kidding," Bowling said. "That was Barack Obama."
The 18-year-old valedictorian said the crowd quickly went silent.
"The crowd erupted in applause and before they could even finish clapping I said I was kidding and the applause quickly died," Bowling said.
Keep in mind...this was in southeastern Kentucky.
Bowling said there was no backlash to his speech at all.
