    I like to go to Bob Evans for breakfast on Sundays when Im on the road, which seems like most of the time. If I pay with a credit card, my company also requests that I provide an itemized list of what I ate. They probably do it because they won't pay for booze plus it probably keeps people from paying for other people's meals.

    So I go to the checkout at Bob Evans and, before I hand the girl my ticket, I say, "I need an itemized receipt as well as my credit card receipt." and I kind of wave my itemized ticket. I could immediately tell that she had no idea what the f I was talking about. She futzes around for a minute and then asks me something about a large coffee. I said no, I just need an itemized ticket. She finishes ringing me up and hands me the credit card slip that, of course, does not include the items. I look at her and say "This isn't itemized." She looked very confused. Then I said, "I need a list of what I ate." More confusion. I finally found her little glass with the itemized tickets in them and pulled one out and said, "I need one of these." It finally clicks and she hands me my itemized ticket.

    Yes, she was hispanic but she spoke English with no accent. My theory is that Bob Evans realized that she was too stupid to take orders and serve so they stuck her behind the register. Where she could take money from people. Smart move, Bob Evans. No child left behind.

    They have great biscuits and sausage gravy. Their eggs and stuff like that are fine too.

    I can't do gravy on biscuits for some reason. I just like them nice and buttered.

    This is actually the second time someone has not understood what I meant by itemized receipt. The first guy didn't know English very well and maybe this girl fooled me with her non accent.

    Maybe 21 give or take. Lots of companies require an itemized receipt so you wouldn't think this would be a foreign concept.

    No. I'm just wondering if the problem lays within her, or the Bob Evans training program

    Either way it's not something worth ranting about. But I'm just a ranter.

    I love ranting, just ask the T&B thread. That being said, she's either a dummy or a very confused dummy. Just print out the itemized receipt, sugartits. Thank you.

    I like when a bill comes to like 10.25 and I give them a 20 and a quarter and they get all anxious and discombobulated because simple math is real stressful :jj:
