At Walgreens we call a "code 10" to tell others that there is a 10/10 that came in
@RubbaDuck, that's literally the exact example in the walgreens training material to not do
@Evil Troy, which is where we got it from haha. It was too good of an idea. The training backfired on them.
@RubbaDuck, side of oregano for us at chipotle
@Evil Troy, nerd
@Coryls94, code red for the overnight crew at lifetime fitness.
@RubbaDuck, At Walmart we announce which cousin has arrived
@RubbaDuck, When I worked at Jimmy John's we would say we needed 20s up front
@RubbaDuck, At the supermarket chain I worked at as a teenager, we would put out a call for a Code 6 - but that meant that someone was bleeding everywhere and we needed a first-aider (and a mop), so I guess it's not quite the same.
@RubbaDuck, back when I worked construction we would yell where's my hammer?
@RubbaDuck, in the pizza place I worked at, we would yell "can I get a sauce check?"
@Nellybert , The fvck kind of death trap grocery store did you work in that there had to be a code for this shît?
@Berntley, I'm not sure if it was used often, but with the number of potentially lethal implements around (butchery knives, meat slicers, rubbish compactors, general stupidity etc) it was a good idea to have it just in case.
@Nellybert , Fair enough. From the specificity, it sounded like it was a bigger issue
@Berntley, It was the emergency call, and that generally meant it would have to be something serious & messy - and in a food shop any leaking biological fluids need to be contained & cleaned fairly quickly. The mop wasn't technically part of the required response, but it was generally accepted that the cleaner would be following close behind the first-aider.
@RubbaDuck, when I worked security we would call in a "code s10" whenever people were banging in the parking lot.
@RubbaDuck, At walmart long ago we paged a code pink
@Coryls94, "carnitas working" at my chipotle
@ImWhitee, what happens when you actually need carnitas lol
@Coryls94, "carnitas working, like actually" usually xD the side of oregano seems much better though I will try to make the switch
A guy I used to work with at Chick-fil-A years ago told me that when he first started working there some of the other guys would use the phrase MILF to refer to hot moms. Well he assumed that this was something that they had made up and one day while he was ringing up one of these hot moms he leaned over to one of his coworkers and said "MILF" while she was right in front of them. Needless to say she wasn't very happy.
Sorta ruins the point of the code if a squad of girls immediately runs out and starts staring at him though
I don't see a single comment from a feminist complaining about this, but imagine if it was reversed and a group of guys just came from the back to all stare at a girl. It would be a feminist sh!t storm
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, all of the comments are talking about how they have a code for when someone hot comes in. There is very little distinction between male or female. I don't think anyone here is having a shîtstorm at all on this one. Just good ideas being shared.
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, my comment may be feminist bait but let's see.
I was a catering roadie for many bands for 18 years. We had this smoking hot girl working for us named Carrie. The guys and I would walk around the concert looking at girls. Our code word for a hot girl was "Carrie". Sometimes we would even walk right up to them and ask if their name was Carrie because "she looked familiar". If we saw a Milf...she was "Carrie's mom"...younger girls were "Carrie's sister". Hot black or latina girls were "Carrie's cousin".
@billphoto7718, we would've liked to meet this Carrie.... Wait. She wasn't all alone at the high school prom was she? No one played any jokes on her right?
I work in a tire shop. "Whitewalls in Bay 5" means hottie in the showroom.
At my old deli we used to call out "baked chicken" if a hottie came by.
We used to say "check out this fine b!tch" at my old job
At the coffee shop I worked at the cashier would add "cinnamon sprinkles" to the order so the other worker making the drinks would see that on their screen and know what's up
My friends and I would say, "there's a fan!" at baseball games when a hot girl with big boobs and a low cut top would pass by.
This is a lie because when i walk in they never yell that out loud
@wawa86, Buddy, I've got bad news for ya... You're a lot like me.
@wawa86, no, it's a real thing. I've had it happen to me. Only many places, the code was a shriek that sounds a lot like terror given voice. Sometimes they even close the store early... then cops show up.
I used to work as a window cleaner for a small private company, and before anyone asks no we did not peep on ppl as you actually have to look AT the window to clean it properly not through it. But whenever we were doing town work or on public buildings we'd shout/say "wet cloth" as code for look at this piece of sexy coming our way. Not really a 'LAD' kinda guy but I must admit that was quite fun for some reason.
Worked in a casino for years. We'd rank by poker hands. "Pocket Queens on table four" and such.
We lifeguards do this thing where we flip our whistle over, cover the holes with our thumbs, and clap. It comes out like a sort of whistle. It's our code
At little Caesar's we called for a pizza check and another dude would come out and tell us how many "pizzas" there were it was a code to rank the hot chick one out of ten
Creamy chocolate? That sounds kinda gay, somehow...
