Another One
Cannibal Corpse - Hammer Smashed Face.

I used to work in McDonalds, was a cracking job, had a great laugh. In any job, you will always have the people you preferred to work with. At McDonalds, that was Marc, Pete & Tom. We weren't often all allowed on shift together, as we used to just take the piss out of the customers.

One night, I knew that P & T were going to be working, but when I got there for my close shift, I found M on front counter, as he'd taken over the shift. Thus followed a night of mayhem, involving one chav being removed from the store by his ear, after he'd been shouting all sorts of shit at his ex (who was also on shift).

The rule was always that after the store has closed, we could put our own music through the system, but at a decent volume. Once Drive-Thru closed, we could have it as loud as we pleased. Of course, decent volume simply meant we had it turned to 10, rather than 11.

On this night P had provided the music, so we were listening to some pretty extreme stuff, Nasum, Obituary, Cannibal Corpse, etc. We had a chavvy girl working drive-thru who wasn't happy with us at all, and she just kept complaining about the 'shitty music'. At one point, my favourite song comes on (as mentioned above) and so we had the music so loud, she couldn't properly hear the customer, so she shouts down to us, and we turn it down. I run down to the window, so I can apologise to the driver, and hear the chav girl apologising for the terrible music, which makes me laugh. I then protest that it's a cracking song, classic, etc.

The chavvy girl rolls her eyes, and looks back to the customer who looks at me, raises an eyebrow and asks "Is that Hammer Smashed Face?" I laughed my head off, as the drive-thru girl goes bright red. I run back down, start to make the driver's order up, and then whack the tune back up. I gave her the food, she waited for the song to finish, thanked me, and left.

Was probably the funniest shift we'd ever had.

About a year back I went to the drive through and was playing Motorhead; I turned it down to place my order but the guy asked me to turn it up as it was "the best music hed heard all day".
