I GOTTA PUT ME FIRST


Becky, the friendliest customer service person in drive thru!

Casper, the friendliest ghost!

It was a wonderful day!

I was in a wonderful mood despite my lack of sleep!

I walked onto my shift, greeted everyone “great! Now that you are here!” Steve chimed.

“You know I live to wreck your day Steve!” I replied happily.

I was so happy to work with my former drive thru team again! I missed them so much! We were laughing and having so much fun!

There was so much chaos that would have had set me off, but I was with the team that knew me best. Knew what set my temper off, what set my anxiety off. They put me at ease. To feel that relaxed? I haven’t felt like that in along time!

To joke around with them, unlike the other teams, was very cathartic! I was enjoying myself immensely!

There was a huge espresso drink order for delivery. I leaned against the counter to put on my lip balm.

“Becky!” Ems exclaimed! “What are you doing!” She started laughing. “Putting on your lip balm?!” She gestured to where she and Devs were making drinks, implying I was being lazy.

“What?!” I blinked innocently. “20 years of laziness!”

“I gotta put me first!” Ems cried dramatically.

It took me a second to realize what meme she was referring to. I burst out laughing. “I gotta put me first, Lucius! I gotta put me first!” I finished making the espresso drinks for Devs.

Devs was bewildered by Ems and my theatrics. “Really you guys!”

Over lunch, Steve was grumbling about our drive thru times “how come we are so slow? Are times are horrible! We are going to be like BK!”

I began to giggle. “BK has no customers so they have the time to hand out notes. Notes to bring customers back and to apologize for being so slow!” I replied.

(BK customers were receiving smiling notes in their orders. So they were complaining how come mcDs weren’t putting customers first. Ahem putting notes with their food. Being more customer oriented)

Steve turned to give me a look. “I wouldn’t be talking. You are as a fast as a snail! BK can give you tips on being fast!”

I burst out laughing. I was wheezing. “Oh my god, Becky!” Steve groaned. He turned back to the presenting table.

“Really Becky!” My drive thru team just shook their heads in disbelief.

“What?!” I managed to speak “it’s true, customers may complain we aren’t ‘customer oriented’ but how come they still are here?! We have to call BK to see if they are still open that’s how dead they are!”

Steve nodded his head as if contemplating what I said was something genius.

It was a wonderful day
