Just a short and sweet one for today!
On Friday (good Friday) I worked at my previous job at the fish and chip shop. In Australia, that is the busiest day of the year for fish and chips because people don't eat meat on good Friday. Not because they're even religious, half of them don't know why. So that means everyone gets fish and chips.
Now at my store we are very good at getting food out quickly. Even at our busiest we are normally about a 20 minute wait to get your food. We are FAST.
At 5pm Friday it was a 20 minute wait. Which was already ten times busier than normal for that time. Within 15 minutes our wait time went up to 1hr 30 min. It stayed that way for the next 3 hours. We took the phone off the hook because it was too much to cope with.
We did not get one single complaint. One or two small grumbles, but nothing serious. Everyone that ordered in store was happy to wait. One of our customers even filled up our drink fridge while she was waiting! She bought us chocolate the next day to say happy Easter.
I honestly love the customers we have at the fish and chip shop. They made the night bearable. So thank you, you amazing patient people.
