SOMEONE WANTED TO CATCH THESE HANDS


Today I started my shift early.

I was on front counter thankfully 😅

We were busy. I was the only person on window. 12 deliveries, plus orders all at once! Good thing I didn’t have to assemble any of it!

Anti-maskers were coming to my register. The gall they had! One lady glared at me “other people aren’t wearing one”

“Other people are sitting down to eat!” I snapped.

The woman struggled to put on her mask “do you really think a mask is going to save you from COVID?” She sneered.

My gaze went cold. “Yeah actually I do!” I shot back “thanks bro!”

She huffed and stormed off.

Wearing a mask for five minutes to order food ain’t going to kill you. You are not medically exempt from wearing a mask just because you don’t want to wear a mask!

My morning progressed nicely until tourists came in. “I want a jr chicken meal” he ordered. I politely informed him we have breakfast and he could have a chicken muffin meal if he’d like.

“I said a jr chicken meal!” He raised his voice.

“It’s breakfast”

He was incredulous. “It’s 10:30!”

My cheerfulness began to fade. “It’s breakfast.”

He even showed me his phone. 10:30. “And?” I sighed. “It’s still breakfast”

“Are you serious right now?!” He demanded. “are you joking?!”

Which was his mistake. It was as if the restaurant got colder. I swear to Gawd, that is my pet peeve. Do not ever ask if I am joking when I am taking an order!

I fixed him with an icy glare. “I don’t joke around.” I answered coldly.

The guy’s reaction was priceless! He was so stunned that I dared to talk back. He looked at me, looked back at his friend “is she for real?” He pointed at me. “This is bullshit!”

“How is it bullshit?!” I asked in resignation. “You were told numerous times that it was breakfast yet you insist on lunch!”

My managers plus the regional manager were eavesdropping, my mouth didn’t care. Come at me with attitude, when I am being polite I will slap you back with the same attitude!

“I don’t want breakfast!” He went on “I wanted a jr chicken!”

“Please order breakfast or move so your friend can order”

His friend laughed, but the guy was so flabbergasted that he couldn’t have his way!

My day was wonderful! aside from the chaos up front!

It was stress free, pain free, drama free!
