    (We have recently just hired a new person, who I am working with today. I’m making friendly conversation.)

    Me: “So, how do you like working in a hotel so far?”

    New Hire: “It’s great! I’ve been working for about two days already and everything seems to be going well. Learning lots of stuff.”

    Me: “That’s great! We really needed someone to work the day shifts. So, what do you like about the job so far?”

    New Hire: “Well—”

    (Just then, a customer comes up to the front desk and we both look at him.)

    Me: “Hi! Can I—”

    Customer: *to new hire* “F*** YOU!”

    (The customer flips both middle fingers at both of us and cackles at our dumbfounded expressions, and then leaves.)

    New Hire: “Well, um… as I was saying, uh…”

    Me: “Yeah, you’re going to meet lots of those crazy people here. They’ll make you want to run out of here, screaming!”

    (Fortunately, the hew hire didn’t run away screaming, and he’s been a great addition for two years now!)
