VorGuy is a teacher - I get "delegated" to do a lot of shopping for him - like picking up food for 27 people for lunch during a summer training event for returning students (who will be training the new students when school starts in the fall).
I order food for 27 people, hand over the "tax-free" letter - only to find out that they don't know how to "do" that on the cash register, so they "discount" it by the amount of the tax. Which means VorGuy will not get reimbursed for the total paid, but the total minus the sales tax that is still showing ($3 here and $3 there adds up over eight days of training when it comes out of the teacher's pocket & has to have paperwork filed for reimbursement).
Then they start serving food and end up five servings short........VorGuy has to take the receipt & run back to the chicken place to get MORE servings - extending lunch by twenty extra minutes (travel time, sorting out time, and eating time after he gets back with the extra chicken).
Which is why I will be going to a different Popeye's chicken for next Tuesday's lunches......there are three in short range driving distance. I hope to find one that can COUNT the pieces of chicken to make sure that all 54 pieces are there in a 27 serving order AND can handle ringing up a tax free order correctly.
I will be going back to that store - but not for any orders larger than TWO Tuesday specials - because I know that they haven't messed up any of the orders on days when that was ALL I was ordering....
This is the ONLY place that hasn't had a "tax free" button or something else set up to click to stop the sales tax from being added - out of quite a few that I've either set up for the students to eat THERE during a field trip, picked up food for take out for this kind of summer school, ordered catering for an awards banquet, or picked up ten pizzas for a "party". I've been "put in charge" of arranging for food for about seven years now. I've set up things at McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, two or three pizza buffet places, Olive Garden (catering for a banquet), a couple of BBQ places (catering for banquets), Kroger (deli for lunches, cakes for events & parties, misc. supplies for various events), Wal*Mart (misc. supplies), and at least one Chinese place (two banquets). ALL of them were able to handle the sales tax not being charged & printing up the sales receipt so that the monies spent could be properly set up for reimbursement for the full amount....just not this ONE location.
