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.
