Sorry that I’ve been seriously lacking on posting rants, but work has been really, well, boring. Not that I’m complaining or anything, since my manager has me working a lot more afternoon shifts, that way I don’t have to work with my Cunt coworker, but afternoons are very dead.
However, the idiots always tend to come out during the afternoons, especially on Fridays. I was called in early today, which was fine because I could always use the extra hours. But since I don’t usually start until three, I had everything done really early and then just chatted with the girl working on the gas station side and got a bit of reading done.
The first idiot happened to come through DT when I was outside getting some cookies out of the freezer. My headset dinged, and I responded with the normal “What can I get you?” speech. The woman asked me if we had any lemon filled donuts left, so I said “Let me just run inside and check for you.” No problem, until she came to the window.
Her: “I don’t think you should be allowed to smoke at work.”
Her: “You were outside smoking, which then made me wait, I think it’s ridiculous.”
Me: “Uhm. I don’t smoke, I was outside in the freezer getting cookies..”
Her: “Whatever, that’s a terrible excuse.”
And she drove off. I have never been more confused in my life. What? And even if I was a smoker, that would be none of her fucking business. What the fuck?
About an hour later, a man comes through DT and orders a large tea. No biggie, I figured that would be an easy order. But of course not. I hand him out his tea and go to collect his change when he says “This isn’t a large.”
Me: “… Yes, it is.”
Him: “No it’s not! I asked for a large!”
Me: “It is a large, sir.”
Him: “I don’t think so, Tim Horton’s larges are bigger.”
Me: “… This isn’t Tim Horton’s.”
Him: “Well, you should have the same sizes!”
And then I proceeded to hand him his change and walk away, he continued ranting for at least 3 minutes.
Now, I have a question for you guys and I hope you can help me a bit. Every week, I have lunch with my two friends at our favourite restaurant however, my one friend is the shittiest tipper ever. Now, I know that tipping isn’t mandatory, but I know what it’s like to have to live off of tips. Plus, if the service is good, they deserve a fucking tip. Last week, AwesomeGirl and I each just had small appetizers and drinks, wince we weren’t very hungry, while BadTipper had a milkshake, a full meal plus dessert. The waitress was very polite, always on top of refills and asking if we needed anything. My bill came to a little over $10, so I left 15$ and about the same with AwesomeGirl, which is fairly decent. However, and this really got me pissed. BadTipper’s bill was 25$ and how much did she leave? $25.75. Seriously
We’ve even talked to her about it before, but she told us that she just “Doesn’t tip.” When she got up to go to the washroom before we left, AwesomeGirl and I went in search of our waitress and gave her another $3, just because that’s all we had, and we apologized for our friend. The waitress thanked us profusely and said that she really appreciated it.
But I was wondering what you guys would do and what you think? Or should we just leave it? I just don’t even know.
