Two Unrelated Things


Today I had an impatient customer. Big shock, I know. I made his drink which, while not complicated, did require me to take a little extra time to ensure I got it just right. Naturally, I didn’t meet his expectations.

“Normally I’d make you fix this but I don’t have time,” he said as he quickly walked away. I smiled and said “I’d be happy to fix it for you,” knowing it was just a gesture on my part, since he was already halfway out of the store.

As I turned to start the next drink, I heard the next customer in line say “How rude. What a douche!” I smiled at her and shrugged. “It happens.”

She smiled back and said “Don’t let it ruin your day. You’re doing just fine.”

“Thank you for saying so. I don’t let that stuff get to me too much. It really does happen a lot,” I told her.

“Can you hurry it up, please? I’m in a hurry!” she said with a smirk.

Sometimes I just love my customers.

Stop typing should of, could of or would of when what you mean is should’ve, could’ve or would’ve. Seriously. I mean it. It makes you seem stupid. You are trying to say should/could/would have. As in: “I should’ve paid more attention in school so my blog readers wouldn’t think I’m an illiterate fucking idiot.”

Yes, I know how it actually sounds when you say the word. It sounds like “of” but it’s not. It’s a contraction, you see: Could(ha)ve. You take part of the word have out and replace it with an apostrophe. Get it? Good. Now do it.

I hate when I’m reading a blog I really want to like but instead I have to leave because you can’t fucking grasp simple grammar.

    That customer was brilliant…not the moody sulky one, he was a – how we say round my parts – a knobber.

    And I hate your rants about grammar, not because I don’t agree with you (and I do wholeheartedly), but because I get very paranoid and have to go back over my posts checking to make sure I haven’t made the errors!

    • Knobber. I may have to add that to my vocabulary.

      FWIW, I haven’t noticed anything rant-worthy in your posts (save the one iffy haiku) so I don’t think you need to worry. Much.
