    Food For Thought-ful

    | Durant, OK, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink, Top

    (I work in a gift shop inside a very successful casino. Our department is very small, and has suffered a few losses of faculty leaving us shorthanded for a small period. I am working a late shift unable to take any breaks but I don’t mind it. I’m used to being on my feet, but I am feeling very hungry. A customer comes in with bags of food wanting a few candy bars.)

    Me: “Oh my gosh, that smells so good.”

    Customer: “Yeah, double cheeseburger, onion rings and chili fries! I’m feeling hungry tonight!”

    Me: “Oh man, me too! I haven’t had a chance to eat today.”

    Customer: “You haven’t? Well, why not?!”

    Me: “The store is open 24 hours, and there’s no one else here to break me. It’s only for a little while though, and my relief comes in at midnight.”

    Customer: “But that’s so long!”

    Me: “It’s not that long, but that smell sure is making me hungry!”

    Customer: “You want me to order you some food?”

    Me: “Sir, you don’t have to do that!”

    Customer: “I want to!”

    (I continue ringing him up and hand him back his change.)

    Me: *chuckles* “Alright, thank you, sir. You have a good night.”

    Customer: “You the same!”

    (The customer leaves and the offer slips my mind as I continue working. Sure enough, about an hour later a drink-girl comes in with a tray full of all the food he described! I was astounded! Thank you, sir, for your generosity!)
