I’m out of the loop, what’s going on
Nah dont do it that means my next blizzard is free
What happens if it actually falls? Do you get a replacement or do you get an extra one with your replacement?
That deadpan expression perfectly encapsulates how we actually felt about this sort of thing. Source: that was my job after high school for a whole minute.
It's such a weird display of showmanship because neither party is entertained by it. It's like some corporate guy thought it was a great idea overestimating how much anybody actually cares.
As someone who used to work at a Dairy Queen in highschool, you lose more toppings than you think doing this.
Ok, so as a former high school DQ employee, my store didn't do this unless someone asked us. But I was always warned never to attempt it with a Banana Split Blizzard because they're runny af (choc syrup, pineapple, strawberry, bananas). It doesn't sound like it would be, but keep in mind that they use that compote stuff for "fruit" so it's a lot of liquids. Esp when someone orders a small. I guess there were a couple spills before I got there, so my manager put the kabash on the flips.
Working at dairy queen was the best and worst job ever. Despised my gossipy, middle aged, been-working-here-since-highschool coworkers. Loved making product and miracle day. Hated cleaning the bathrooms though, pubes EVERYWHERE
and if you dont flip it oh my
wage slavery would be funnier if it wasn't so real
There was a time where the worker did it for my nephew and it ended up sliding out and getting all over the cash register. I near pissed myself as it happened
Last time I went to Dairy Queen I ordered a blizzard and the worker flipped it and everything fell all over him and all the rest of the employees turned, started clapping and the manager came out and said “nice job Jacob”
Can confirm- am the ice cream
I had an employee flip it, it fell out on her shirt, she cursed really loud in front of my 10 year old self.
I hated doing this when I was at Dairy Queen in high school.
Probably the best was when i was doing drive through and I did it for a guy because he asked me to. He took it in his hand then turned to his kid squeezed the cup and flipped it to show his kids he could do it too...
Spilled all over his seats and I got caught laughing.
Someone burned down our Dairy Queen
For me it's always: God, I Hope They Don't Do The Thing. Please, Please, PLEEEASE. Don't Do The Thing. I'm Sure You Made It Fine Except The Oreo Didn't Make It All The Way To The Bottom, Which I have Come To Accept As The Natural Order Of Things. Really. Don't. Do. The. Thing.
Them: Does The Thing.
It’s absurd that there are people who work for $7.25/hour
Upside down so you know it's thick!
I'd like that right side up, thanks.
i always tell them please dont do that cus I honestly dont care and want my icecream as soon as possible
This shits funny
Funny story, our local DQ adopted this last year and when my mom experienced it for the first time in the drive-thru she was SO confused and told the worker “uh, can you put a lid on it?” And looked at me and said “what are they even doing?” And I explained it laughing hysterically, she had no idea
One time when I was getting a blizzard the DQ employee tried to flip it and ended up dropping it lol
For the longest time I was so confused as to why they were flipping it upside down. When you're a little kid you don't understand stuff like that or care that it's really thick lol.
I gotta confess that I have done this ungodly thing
Once I bought a blizzard and when she flipped it it fell right out the cup...I couldn't help but laugh
I wanna send this to my brother cause he works there but he's 35 and it will make him sad
I've always thought that this shit was dumb and was so confused as to why they did it up until recently.
I worked at a dairy queen in high school for a while. I once saw a coworker do this out the drive through window handing it to the customer in her car. It was a banana split blizzard with hot fudge mixed in... Apparently the hot fudge loosens up the icecream and it all went into the customer's lap. Never again.
one time my friend ordered a blizzard and went to the bathroom and didnt come back before they finished making it. the poor kid working didnt know what to do since she wasnt around to see him flip it so he just flipped it for the rest of us standing in line. i think it counted.
And most of the time we flip it super quick, because, WHOOPS, we used too much cocoa fudge, so its actually runny!
If they don't flip it over you get it for free I think
The DQ close to me never flips it. I don’t want to be that guy that bitches about it or demands a free one even though that’s the policy. Just hurts my heart a little when they don’t do the thing but still tastes good
If they don’t flip it upside down then you get a free blizzard.
What is this sorcery? The DQ in my town and surrounding towns have never done this before
Holy shit this was actually me lmao
I dont get it
No don't do the thing! I always feel a rush of dread and anxiety when they flip the blizzard.
I knew a girl who worked at Dairy Queen and she loved turning the blizzard upside down
“UpSidE dOwN ThIcC!”
Once I had a really thick blizzard and I was sat at a table with my friends and flipped it over my head to show them and some guy saw me do it from another table and decided to copy me and the whole blizzard fell out onto his head. I think about it a lot.
I like this meme but it feels a little too close to the "say it bart" Simpsons meme
My DQ doesn’t do it ಥ_ಥ
