A pesar de verte apenas pocas veces mi corazón supo desde un principio que eras tú esa persona que iba a habitar en él, te vi y suspiré,te vi y pensé: Qué armonia me transmite ,desde aquel día supe que eras tú y solo tú. No importa ¿ćomo? ¿cuándo? ¿Por qué? o el tiempo para aprender a quererte sin excusas ni remordimientos,solo sé que aquí y ahora tú formas partes de mi mundo.
Amis and co. as things customers at my (fast food) job have done
Bahorel: tipped me 10$ on a 9$ meal because I made “the best fucking fries in history”
Joly: ordered our largest size (which is enough food for two-three people) with extra gravy but then added peas on top because “I’m trying to eat healthy”
Feuilly: ordered, paid, and then just. Fell asleep. Right there at the till.
Enjolras: got legitimately angry when our card machine didn’t have a tip option and got even angrier when I said I was working through New Year’s eve until 5 am. Offered to call head office and complain about it.
Cosette: also on New Year’s eve, gave all of the staff chocolate bars and thanked us for working so hard and so late
Montparnasse: came in to the shop twice a week in the summer while we had a limited time meal called the Mac Daddy and only ever ordered that. Never came in again after we got rid of it.
Combeferre: lives in the flat above the shop, comes in every week with a ceramic bowl and asks me to make his meal in it (instead of our paper boxes) to reduce waste
Jehan: reads, considers, and takes a picture of every single quote I write on the blackboard. Always asks for extra pickles.
Gavroche: had an actual laughing fit when I squeezed the cheese sauce bottle and it made farting noises
Courfeyrac: came in around 3 am on the weekend before Halloween dressed as David Bowie. Picked up a feather boa a customer had left behind, put it on and kept it
Éponine: started yelling at some idiot who was catcalling another customer. It got so heated they had to take it outside
Musichetta: nice regular who just comes in to write Instagram handles on the board, chats with us for a few minutes and leaves
Marius: apologized like five times even though I was the one who messed up the order. Tried to pay with Euros (in Canada)??
Bossuet: came in slightly drunk at 2 am on a snowy day so the shop floor was wet, fell down literally more than ten times even after I mopped
Grantaire: stared at the menu of poutines for 10 minutes, gave up and asked me “which one’s the most dank”
did I show you guys that jump-off from last week at Equita’Lyon when Uhelem de Seille and Camille Favrot ripped apart the competition by winning the FEI Ponies Jumping Trophy with a 6-seconds margin over the rest of the field
“I was floating around in the Garden of Eden, thrilled to be a human being at the Human-Be-In, knowing the world could be saved if we loved one another. I was draped in flowers, bestowed upon me by my brothers and sisters. I was laughing, loving, breathing Princess of Peace…
