I work at a gas station. It always bugs me a little when people hand me their money to prepay for gas, tell me a pump number, and then just walk out before I’ve even finished putting it in the system, but I had one today that really got me.
This girl comes in, can’t have been older than 17 as it was right around when the high school day ended and she looked pretty young. So, only a little younger than me, and trying to treat me like I was stupid.
Customer: Can I get $5 on– *loud noise from someone getting ice from the fountain drinks*
Me: I’m sorry, what was that?
Customer: *rolls eyes and waves the bill under my nose* ummm, $5 on pump 14? *drops it and walks out*
I then left her bill on the register and served another customer. Just as she was coming back inside to ask what was wrong (undoubtedly politely, I’m sure, as she had been nothing but), I quickly put the money on the pump. Her friend called her back to tell her it was working and she flipped her hair bitchily as she walked back to the pump. I almost regretted not waiting just one more second to see what she’d say.
We ask all our customers if they want their receipt and they usually say no, but they print out either way. Well of course since she stormed out at my apparent insolence she didn’t get her receipt. I wrote a curse on the back basically saying she’d have hearing problems for a fortnight and instead of support she would be greeted with disdain and condescension. I put it in my pocket and at the end of my shift I went to the restroom and flushed the receipt. Overkill? Probably, lol. Still satisfying. 👍
YOU DID SUCH A GOOD JOB ON MY PROMPT!Another: Trini thumps a helmet onto a little girl's head and ushers her to the 'arena.' "Alright warrior, beat the fu-" "TRINI!" Jason rolls his eyes from the outside of the playpen, the word 'SECURITY' showing through his crossed arms. Trini grumbles as the carnival owner's daughter lets out a loud laugh from her station at the water slides. Stupid Kimberly Hart and her stupid hot pink bikini bottom showing underneath her 'life guard' tank top.
