i worked at mcdonald's once in my life - and once it crossed the counter it can't come back. didn't use all your creamers? no i can't take them back we would take them from the customer but they had to go straight to the trash. forgot to put cheese on your burger? we had to give you a whole new burger, can't take your burger back and slap some cheese on it.
i could take the coffee pot out into the dining room and freshen up their coffee, but their cup could not come back across the counter to get re-filled and handed back.
When i worked at a supermarket deli - same thing - we could NOT take their container. nor did we have paper as an option for wrapping the meats and cheeses. currently only one of our supermarkets has paper, but you have to ask for it bc it costs the store more.
