Notable Guests and Incidents From my Career at Chick-Fil-A
  • Elderly woman in the drive thru that insisted her meal should be free because the total cost was the same as her birth year. 
  • Obligatory group of shirtless frat boys. 
  • Guy who pulled me aside and demanded to know if we wash our floors with grease because the (freshly mopped) bathroom floor was slippery. 
  • Soccer mom that intentionally poured a large strawberry milkshake onto her son’s head as punishment. She asked for a new one.
  • Kid that stood on a table and sung Let It Go uninterrupted from start to finish. She received a standing ovation from everyone in the restaurant.
  • Teenage girl that paid for a to-go order, about $45 total, entirely in singles. 
  • College-age girl that asked if it was true that we were handing out free sandwiches to gays and, if so, if she could have one. I told her we weren’t doing that promotion at our location, but I’d buy her a sandwich if she gave me her number. She politely declined. 
  • Prank caller asking if we wanted to buy weed. The manager replied by saying we had a guy that sold to us for 10$/quarter and to call back when he could match that
  • Multiple instances of kids pooping in the playplace.
  • Another prank caller asking if we sold burgers. The manager (a different one) told them there was a Five Guys across the street, so why on earth bother looking for a burger here anyway?
  • That time Arthur Darville came in.
  • Drive thru guest who regularly asks, very specifically, for “coke zero, NOT diet coke with extra ice’
  • A basketball team from a local high school got banned for using their trays to slide down the slide.
  • This happened to be the same night that the staff all stayed an extra 20 minutes after the doors were locked and took turns using a tray to slide down the slide. 
  • Guy with a southern accent that addressed me as “you with the tits,” shoved his sweet tea under my nose for a refill and then, upon noticing my murderous expression, said, “Service with a smile, darlin’,” winked, and walked out.
  • Woman who told me in a watery voice, upon observing my name tag, that her recently deceased daughter’s name was Emily too. She comes back and chats with me occasionally. 
  • My coworker, Tyquan once finished his conversation with the guests by saying “Love, Peace, and Chicken Grease!” It is now a meme and basically all of our customers know him. 
  • That time I was explaining to one of the girls what Rocky Horror Picture Show was and this elderly couple leaned across the counter with wide eyes and exclaimed “You’ve never heard of Rocky Horror!?” And proceeded to yell their favorite audience participation lines. 
  • Guy who’s on the security staff of a local college frequently comes through the drive thru on his segway. We are all on a first name basis with him.
  • A skinny fuckboy who consistently, for over two years, has always come in wearing a trilby, carrying a copy of hamlet, and ordering “Coca-Cola” instead of coke. 
  • Some redneck-type guy with no front teeth that asked me if almost everybody on the staff is “saved” (they are.) He then asked me how old I was and if I was a nice Christian gal (I’m not).
  • Guy who geek-checked me for my Keyblade necklace. He didn’t play the spinoffs.
  • I went into the low fridge one day and the stack of juice boxes had toppled over, basically burying everything else. I asked the manager what happened, and he looked at me dead in the face and said “it was an appleanche.” 
  • Stoners calling to ask if we delivered.
  • Guy who said, in a deadass tone: “If you guys call it Chick-Fil-A because the staff is all chicks why don’t y’all wear more revealing shirts?” And I honestly didn’t even know what to do because a) our staff is not all women and b) Sir do you realize that this is a heavily Christian establishment I mean christ.
  • Unknown guest who left me several napkins with pictures drawn on them, labelled “tip.” To date it is the third tip I’ve ever gotten and by far the best.
  • That time we traded four large strip trays for eight cases of White Castle.
  • Woman in the drive thru that demanded to speak with the owner because we told her that she could not get six large cups of ice for free and would have to pay for a bag of ice instead.
  • Guy in a full replica batman cosplay. He came in, walked around, took some pictures with people, and left.
  • There was a baby boomer that screamed literally right in my face because his nuggets were cold. I had shit to do though and his breath with nasty so after six whole minutes of this (I timed it) I burst into tears and told him it was just my first day. Later the manager told me that she saw the whole thing and that she almost peed herself from laughing so hard and that I wasn’t allowed to do that anymore. 

And finally…

  • Prank caller asking if we could do a birthday party for 52 lesbians.

I mean in general I think that it’s really funny that Ezor is so often described as friendly and nice when… 

She’s really… not.

Ezor really isn’t the resident innocent sweetheart out of the team. She has a very ebullient disposition, and part of it is sincere- she really is peppy and expressive.

She’s just also someone with what feels like a massive load of bitterness lurking not particularly deep below the surface.

A friend of mine actually described her as coming across like someone who in the past hated her situation but had nothing she could do about it, and I think that fits a lot, because Ezor really does feel… like she’s pulling off the customer service personality just to throw it in people’s faces exactly how unpleasant she feels like being.

I’d actually say there’s kind of a rough divide between Ezor and Zethrid who seem to genuinely enjoy having and using an advantage (consider Ezor’s wicked smirk above and her whole attitude towards the leader of Puig) and Narti and Acxa who are much more indifferent means-to-an-end about it.

I don’t think Ezor’s an awful person through and through because I’d chalk all of Lotor’s team as somewhere on the antihero side of a shade of gray, but Ezor is not the Resident Sweetheart Nice Gal. She’s nice all right… but only to the people who are already on her side.

Otherwise, she tends to give a very approachable impression, but in context, it kinda betrays the lurking vindictive edge. For example she’s the only one not scowling when the generals reveal they have Throk surrounded but Ezor’s smile in that context, one she wears fairly frequently, does not say “Hi, I’m here to be your friend!”

To me, that face says “my boss is about to destroy you and one of the last things you’ll hear is me loudly, passive-aggressively eating popcorn while I watch.”

I’ve seen a lot of people compare her to Ty Lee from A:TLA and I get that vibe too, but, Ezor has… a lot more edge to her. Ty Lee was terrifyingly competent too, yeah, but she was also fundamentally a pretty sweet and happy person who was in her debut appearance strong-armed into joining Azula’s hunt for the avatar since she didn’t really want to leave her peaceful job.

Somehow, I don’t feel like Ezor was perfectly happy somewhere else before she met Lotor.

“Darkiplier VS Antisepticeye” is Mark’s Effort to Take Back Control From Dark: A Theory

(Disclaimer: I know nothing about any of Jack’s egos, so this is entirely about Mark’s. Disclaimer 2, Electric Boogaloo: I had my Frosted Mini Wheats like two hours late today, and that threw off my groove, so I’m sorry if I’m less eloquent than usual. Disclaimer III- This Time, It’s Personal: The only reason this isn’t under a read more is because someone told me to do that last time, but they weren’t very nice about it, so now I’m being petty. I’m sorry for being the worst. I still love you guys, though.)

In my last theory, we discussed the possibility that Dark is trying to take back control through more subtle means this time, and that he has a plan that we didn’t get to see during Markiplier TV. He’s been slowly giving hints of his existence in videos, teasing just enough to get people talking. He hasn’t revealed himself outright in any videos since Markiplier TV; he hasn’t denied being in them, either. 

Remember this interaction between @markiplier and @hufflepufftrax?

Mark quickly dispels rumors about Darkiplier when they’re not true. Why, then, would he not clear the air during the chaos of World’s Quietest Let’s Play 4, or any other video that has stirred up the community a great deal more than this photo ever did? The logical train of thought, then, is that these really were Dark appearances and we are supposed to know it. So, if Dark has been going about this so carefully all along, why would he reveal himself by sharing the spotlight in a comedy sketch? The short answer is that he wouldn’t. The reality is… say it with me now… it’s just Mark impersonating Dark!

Yeah, I know, no shock there. You’ve been hearing that since the video dropped. I talked about it when answering an ask, which I’m screenshotting and dropping below for your convenience, because I’m just a nice gal like that.

So now we have to ask, why would Mark do this? If Dark really is starting to take back control, this would be a dangerous time to pull a stunt like this, wouldn’t it? Well, it makes sense when you consider the fact that Mark has all but run out of options. 

Every time Dark is hinted at, the community goes wild. It doesn’t matter how subtle the hint may be- if the lights in the background of a video are red and blue, someone will point it out. Someone will draw him. Someone will get excited. And then, over time, everyone will get excited. 

Even if Mark tried to warn us, it only fueled the fire. Reaching out for help, trying to tell us that Dark is here– it is exactly what Dark wants. So Mark now has to try a different tactic. The only way that Dark can lose at this point is if he loses his allure to the viewers, and the only way to do that is to use his own method against him: Dark is pretending to be Mark, and now Mark is pretending to be Dark in order to discredit him. More specifically, he’s trying to get Dark out of the way, impersonate him, and make a fool out of him. That sounds… familiar, doesn’t it? Have we heard that somewhere before?

What if I change up the tense a little and word it a bit more like this?

“Pushed aside. Replaced. Mocked.”

That rings a few more bells, doesn’t it?

When we put all of these things together, a picture starts to form: Mark kept Dark at bay for years by making him a joke, but then he made the mistake of letting down his guard. Letting him back in. Now, Mark is fighting back using the only method that he has ever known to work. Why wouldn’t it this time? Making silly edits, taking over Mark’s twitter with edgy, emo poetry… it was enough to dissuade the community last time. So what could make it fail now? How could humor no longer be sufficient to drive Dark away?

The key difference this time is that Dark is not simply a wisp of a presence like he was years ago. He can’t be laughed off anymore. He is here. He is real. He is powerful. He does not like to be mocked, and this action from Mark will most definitely have consequences.

And the blame for that, really, falls on all of us. As Mark said all those years ago, we made Dark real.  Back then, he had to resort to humor to keep Dark at bay, because none of us would listen to him when he warned us. Now, history’s repeating itself,  but the outcome isn’t so sure this time. We learned nothing in the process. Now Dark has become too strong, because we, the viewers, keep letting him back in. Mark tries to tell us that Dark is here and we are thrilled about it.

So, really, the question isn’t, “Why would Mark do this?”

The question is, 

Why didn’t we listen?

67 with Eponine/Cosette! Pretty pleaaase~

“Stop being so cute.”

Hogwarts AU because, again, I can.

If Eponine was little less proud and competitive, she’d admit that the Hufflepuff common room was way more comfortable than the Slytherin dungeon. It was warmer, for one thing, which, in the middle of winter, could not be overlooked. Situated below the lake, the Slytherin common room fostered a lot of colds and runny noses. Slytherins were known to flood the hospital wing as soon as the temperature dropped in October. 

Another thing the Hufflepuff common room had over the Slytherin’s was Cosette Fauchelevent.

Now, the old “Thou shalt not bring a non-Slytherin into the Dungeon” rule was widely overlooked. Enjolras smugled in countless of his friends almost daily. So did Montparnasse, though his company was more selective, and though he tried to be discreet about it, he really wasn’t fooling anyone.

But why bring Cosette to the Slytherin Dungeon when Eponine could spend a cozy evening drinking hot cocoa wrapped in a warm plaid? The fact that she could also avoid smug looks from Montpanasse and Claquesous also factored in that equation.

Eponine was sitting on a bed opposite Cosette’s, who was currently sticking her tongue to a muggle device. A picture taking device, not unlike those used in the magical world, except the photographs did not move.

“How can muggle know what’s happening on the photo if it doesn’t move?” Eponine asked, as Cosette was fanning the lastest picture for the colours to dry.

“There’s often  a caption under it that explains it all.”

“Don’t muggles get bored? I mean… It’s a little bit weird, no?”

“I like it,” Cosette shrugs. “It’s like a snapshot of someone’s life. One second, and pouf! It’s gone. But the memory of that second remains. You’re a second older, but that’s a second of your life you can carry around with you. It’s a little spark of immortality.”

Eponine chuckled and nudged Cosette’s leg with her shoe.

“Someone’s been hanging out with Jehan,” she teased, though she shouldn’t help herself but smile and look at Cosette.

A bright light flashed before her eyes, and before Eponine understood what had happened, Cosette was fanning yet another small picture.

“Oh no!”

“Oh yes!”

There was one flash, then another. Laughing, Eponine hid her face behind her hands.

“Stop taking pictures.”

“Stop being so cute.”

Truth was, Eponine disliked muggle motionless pictures because she had no control over them. What if she looked bad on it? She couldn’t adjust the angle, the picture was already taken! What if those picuted showed the truth?

Cosette put her device down and looked at the new photographs she had just taken. A bright smile dug little dimples in her cheeks.

“They’re wonderful! Can i keep one? I’ll put it with the others!”

“I-Yeah, sure.”

“Can we take one together?”

“Depends, can I burn it if it looks terrible?” Eponine said wryly.

“Nonsense, you always looks gorgeous.”

Cosette popped on the bed beside Eponine and cast a spell on the device to make it levitate in front of them. Right before the flash, Cosette kissed her cheek, and Eponine could have sworn the outline of her lips had left an invisible, yet burning mark.

She looked at the picture, her heart knocking dangerously in her chest.

“Can I keep it?” Eponine asked, her voice suddenly higher pitched than usual. “I really like it.”

“Of course, of course! I really like it too.”

So just because Mary has some good qualities, I should be okay with Joseph and her staying in their unhappy and unfulfilling marriage?
Mary has shown to be a loving person to her friends but none of that love was given to her husband and children. If Mary was shown to be a good mother and wife instead of a neglectful alcoholic mother, I would have been like “Okay it’s pretty shitty that Joseph would cheat on her and I feel kinda guilty for trying to break up a marriage.” 

I get that it’s bad to try and break up a marriage and being a homewrecker. I wouldn’t have minded, though, if Joseph’s end was to stop seeing the MC to finalize his divorce and start dating when everything has settle, but they decided to keep Joseph in a shitty marriage because Mary is sometimes a nice gal. And it’s not fair for Mary either because it’s obvious that she’s unhappy too, whether it’s because she doesn’t love Joseph or because Joseph doesn’t love her. 

I don’t necessary need MC to be together with Joseph in the end, but I would have liked to see Joseph going through the process of having a happy life without putting on a facade for the Maple Bay community. 

And why not give us the option of helping Joseph instead of simple fucking him on his boat? They made MC and Joseph into bad people without an option to take the moral high ground. 

I don’t regret buying the game because I love these characters, but I’m disappointed that more thought wasn’t put into Joseph and his end. It’s not right to break up a marriage, but it’s not right to think that a gay man should remain in a broken marriage with a woman simple because Mary is kinda okay. 

This is your daily reminder

That Gal Gadot never supported Palestinian genocide.

Always believed in coexisting

Worked as a fitness instructor during her time in the military

It is mandatory for devout people of the Jewish faith, especially Israelites, to join as an Israeli commando. She is equivalent to an American who wants to join the Army after high school.  And don’t say guilty by association because that shit never works with religion. Don’t take away the fact that this is going to be the first successful female superhero movie and kids are gonna look up to that. DO NOT TAKE THIS AWAY FROM KIDS BECAUSE YOU DON’T AGREE WITH POLITICS. Anyway thank you and have a nice day. 

Slow Hands

(A Smutty-ish Steve One Shot)

A/N: I should be getting ready for work, I should be writing It’s a Buck Girl Thing but it’s Steve’s birthday and the poor lad needs some loving! It’s quite smutty and inspired by Niall Horan’s Slow Hands

A/N 2: I wrote it quickly this morning and only checked it once so apologies for any mistakes!

Summary: After the events of Civil War, and Bucky gone, Steve does not want to celebrate. He wants to feel like a normal guy, meet a nice gal, have his way with her. He’s in Wakanda and it’s the 4th of July and everyone’s down to celebrate.

Warnings: Smutty undertones. Pet names. Steve’s neck.

Word count: 2.5k

The media for the past few years: Marvel needs to make a superhero female led film. Marvel has no excuse. We need to see female representation after all the flak Whedon’s Black Widow got along with Marvel’s noticeable lack of female leads.

DC: okay, since no one else is doing it and the media and comics fans alike are demanding a superhero lead film, let’s make the first female lead superhero movie with the most iconic female superhero in history- Wonder Woman! Here you go, it has an Israeli Jew playing Wonder Woman, a female director Patty Jenkins (that Marvel mistreated and dropped from Thor because they’re idiots and the jokes on them now), a diverse cast of Amazons, and it’s coming out next year :D

The media: … . .

Marvel: finally we’re announcing a currently popular white fav and super young Brie Larson to play Captain Marvel in 2019. also let’s push this back for our yellowface and other white movies. we don’t have a director yet but we are looking for a “female” to direct a lady movie ;). We’re so close….to making this movie….3 years from now…and 2 years after Wonder Woman’s movie…. :)

The media: Wow, Marvel was right to make us wait all these years for the first female led superhero film!

Me:
