Pizza Pit is still pretty wonderful, despite some bumps in the road. But honestly, what job is awesome all the time?
I got some stories for you today - nothing of note has really happened lately, but I was making mental notes throughout my hiatus, and thought I'd sharesies.
1. Captain Obvi-boss
My boss, whom we shall call Rude simply because he is sometimes, has all the social skills of a boulder. He doesn't really mean anything when he says stupid shit, it's just how he rolls.
For instance, my boyfriend came to collect me from work during my first week because he's a sweetheart and the bus sucks. My dude's a nerd extraordinaire, and recently dyed his hair a vivid purple. He gets comments on it all the time (because it's fucking sweet) and Rude was no exception. Boyfriend was chilling near the counter waiting for my drawer to be counted down so I could get the hell outta there, and Rude came out of the kitchen and stopped in his tracks.
"Is this your boyfriend?" he asked.
"Yep!" I replied.
"His hair is purple."
Then he just walked away.
Thanks, Rude. I hadn't noticed.
2. The Blind Leading the Blind
I posted this on the Facebook page a few days ago. A group of blind people came for lunch - apparently they're part of a national group and their chapter meets at my restaurant every month or so.
A woman and her husband came in first, followed by a man with a guide dog, and two other members. They stepped up to the counter and asked for some Braille menus, then ordered a pizza and drinks.
Our drinks are self-serve, and it took some creative directions on my part to get them the drinks they wanted. As they went to pay for their pizza, the man with the guide dog leaned in close and said "I get a discount for being handsome, right?"
He then turned to the husband and said "Well, Nick, looks like you're outta luck!" His wife piped up indignantly and said "That's my husband, and I happen to think he's the handsomest man in the world!"
"You can't see him, that's why!" the other man laughed.
She leaned in close and whispered "But I can feel him and that's so much better."
I had to walk away because I was laughing so hard that it was disturbing other customers. They really were an amazing group of people.
That's really all I got right now. I'm pretty tired lately - my hours are being increased, since one of the three counter people put in his two-week notice and I'm gonna be picking up weekends in addition to working 5 days a week. Pretty damn lame.
Loves, kisses and someone needs to hire a new counter person,
