Okay so I worked at a local pizza place for only like three months. It isn’t a full service restaurant, meaning the customer has to order at the register and get their own drinks, but there are still servers who carry food to tables and shit like that. There was one time where this middle age/older couple sat down and they both looked absolutely furious. Like, the guy was shaking mad, for seemingly no reason. So I say, in my kindest server voice, “is there anything I can do for y'all?” And he’s like “yes. I have been waiting 10 whole minutes for someone to take my order” (even though he’d only been there for less than 5…). I explain that he has to order at the register and he just isn’t having it. He looked at me with pure rage in his eyes. He stood up, threw his jacket down on the table, and made some angry grunting noise. I was like ok…no big deal. They’ve probably never been here before so it’s alright. I see them sitting down after they place their order. I’m walking by (with a pizza in each hand) and the guy pulls my shirt and I almost fall. He says, “Can somebody PLEASE get us some GOD DAMN PLATES???”. They didn’t even have their food yet! I tell him yes sir of course, I’ll be right back with them. I make eye contact a couple more times during the night and each time they both looked at me like I was the literal devil. When I saw that they had cleared their plates, I offered to take the mess away. The man says, “It’s about damn time!!” and gets up to leave. I say, “Bye guys, have a nice night!” And do you know what this man says to me. He turns around, looks me dead in the eye and says, “Stay in school.” Wow!! thanks so much!!!!!! Thank you, old man that I don’t know, for giving me this precious advice (and no tip). I was actually going to drop out tomorrow but thanks to you, my hope in my education has been restored! Absolutely incredible!
if any of you have doubts about floristry being fuckin wild, my boss left me and 2 of my coworkers alone with free wine on thursday night and i dont remember anything but we finished an entire 100 centerpiece vase arrangement order and i found like 10 whole minutes of video footage on my phone of us running a rose head under the sink and crying
chloe and max where up all night for research but figured out more in like the 10 minutes where max is back than the whole night you might almost think they did something else during the night ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
