  26. 26. MIN 10Serving  The  Customer? You are a student working your way through college. You work at FatBurger on the 2pm to 11pm shift, and are the only person on duty. You are cleaning up at 10:30 when a customer approaches and orders a Double FatBurger Deluxe, with onions, cheese, and bacon and an order of fat fries. You ring up the order. The price is $6. The customer informs you that he only has $1.20. • FatBurger is high quality. Everything is cooked from scratch. • There is no pre-cooked food you were planning on throwing out. • FatBurger uses strict inventory control. Anything you take to give to the customer will be charged to your paycheck. • The clerk has not yet entered the order. Question: What do you do? What do you tell the customer? The Case Study Part 1:
  27. 27. MIN 10Serving  The  Customer? • 1. When you came to work you had noticed a squirrel that had been run over in the parking lot. Not sure why you remembered this right now, but you had. • 2. You ask the customer to wait a minute. You step outside in back and look for the squirrel. It is still there, but run over a few more times. You pick it up by the tail, but the tail falls off. Apparently the squirrel has been there for some time. You get a shovel and scrape it up. • 3. You bring the squirrel back inside, into the kitchen, out of the customer’s sight. • 4. You ask the customer to wait just a minute, that you may be able to help him. • 5. You quickly scrape as much fur off the squirrel as you can, put it in the microwave for 30 seconds while you scrounge in the trash for a partially eaten bun. You take the squirrel out, put it in the bun, cover it with sauce, and wrap it in a nice new FatBurger wrapper. • 6. You go out to the customer and give him the FatBurger/Squirrelburger and a glass of water. You take his $1.20 and wish him a good day. Question: What is wrong with that? The Case Study Part 2:
  28. 28. MIN 10Serving  The  Customer? The original story continues… The guy walked off, eating and loving the fresh meat. When he got three blocks away, though, he fell to his knees, frothing at the mouth, and collapsed. He was taken to a local hospital for food poisoning (botulism), where it took him three weeks to recover. He successfully sued FatBurger corporate for $455m and almost put them out of business. Question: What is this all about? The Case Study Part 3:
