don’t get me wrong, i love my job…but sometimes i just get so bummed out that some folks seem to think that getting their caffeinated beverage prepared in the exact (and ridiculous) way in which they demand is more important than treating the human beings (you know, me and my co-workers) serving them with respect and a little bit of grace. i will never understand how such trivial things can make people be such assholes.
coffee is a fucking luxury, folks. nobody needs it. if i were preparing your one meal of the day and i accidentally dumped poison into it, then sure…get mad at me.
but don’t act like a dick because your au lait “doesn’t taste as strong as it usually does”. you’ll be fine, i promise.
if i fuck up your drink, i am more than happy to remake it for you, because that is my job. all i ask is that you ask nicely…it’s like, a super simple concept. also remember that i work at one of the busiest shops in the city, and memorial day is one of the busiest days of the year for businesses providing a food service…so cut us some slack. we wake up at 5am every day to do this job, and deal with assholes on an all too regular basis…and we just have to brush it off and serve you with a smile. please understand how exhausting this is. the fact is, most people couldn’t do it.
i need a nap.
it was just absolutely perfect.
the summer heat, spending time with my oldest friend and having good conversation, being in the place i grew up…and for an afternoon, feeling like i have my old life back. it felt almost as if the events of (nearly) six years ago never even happened…like things were whole and everything was as it should be. or, as i wish they were.
it’s a feeling that is not healthy to actively seek after, but when it comes to you without any effort on your part…i think it’s okay to enjoy it while you can. i just haven’t felt at home in my own life in so, so long…and today, i did. what a wonderful feeling.
SO NOW FACEBOOK CHAT TELLS ME WHEN SOMEONE HAS SEEN THE STUPID SHIT THAT I WROTE
SO I KNOW HOW LONG IT TAKES THEM TO RESPOND TO THE STUPID SHIT THAT I WROTE
AND THE WHOLE TIME I JUST GET TO SIT THERE AND WISH “MAN I REALLY WISH I HADN’T WRITTEN THAT STUPID SHIT”
THANKS AGAIN FB
