A DoorDash driver is waiting at the drive-thru to pick up an order for a customer when she overhears a conversation going on inside the restaurant between a "nice" manager and an employee that is "tired" and wants to leave early.

DoorDash Driver Captures Audio Drama Inside a Dallas Taco Bell

Brandy posted a TikTok video on her account (@brandylynn5389) on 23 May 2023 that captured the audio of what was taking place inside the Dallas, Texas Taco Bell.

The manager inside Taco Bell is talking to an employee and it is heard outside on the drive-thru speaker.

He said:

"...but if this isn't the job for you, and you wanna clock out, don't assume that you're coming back, 'cause you've been doing this all week--you leave early, I can understand... (speaking to others inside) 'He feels tired guys, he feels tired'...We all feel tired, okay? We all feel tired. You have to stay until the job is done. If you leave, you will not come back. I promise you." -Dallas Taco Bell Manager

There is a momentary pause where the employee says something off of the microphone to the manager.

The manager responds:

"No, no, no, no, no. You do this every day and I'm tired of it. No, no, no, I'm tired of it. If you leave, you will not come back. You stay until the job is done. We all leave together. That's it. Okay? -Dallas Taco Bell Manager

Comments on the TikTok Video

Brandy says what happens to the lazy employee in the comments.

She said:

"After this the guy left and walked over to the Taco Bell sign and kicked it a few times and walked off." -Brandy, DoorDash driver

In the comments to the TikTok video, user "BigToot" said:

"Props to him for confronting and standing his ground a lot of managers get promoted and have no training on proper confrontations with bad employees."

Brandy replied to the comment, "This manager seemed really nice and was having fun with the other employees."

Another person claiming to be a Taco Bell General Manager in the comments said:

"As a TB GM, I'm [expletive] exhausted. Fast food really isn’t for the weak. I had a kid last 3 hours and he spent most of it on his phone."
