I Woke Up Today And Felt Like Complaining

| Encinitas, CA, USA | Uncategorized

Angry man: “This is ridiculous! Look how small these cones are!”

Other server: “Uh…?”

Me: “Can I help you?”

Angry man: “Yeah! Each time I come in here, the cones get smaller and smaller, and the scoops are tiny!”

Me: “Sir, those are standard sized scoops. But if you’d like, I can add on a bit more ice cream.”

Angry man: “It’s not about the ice cream! It’s the fact that you are taking money from people and making everything smaller. This is ridiculous! Don’t you feel ashamed?”

Me: “I’m sorry sir…I’ll talk to my manager about that if you’d like.”

Angry man: “Yeah, well, good!”

(He tries to toss the ice cream cone in the trash, but misses. He picks the cone up off the ground and throws it away. The other server and I try to keep from laughing.)

Angry man: “You’ve just lost a customer for life!” *stalks out, red-faced*

Me and the other server: “Wow…”

(In re-enters a customer with his son who I had just served moments before.)

Another customer: “Don’t worry about that guy. He was just screaming at someone over at the next door grocery store for not having the correct amount of bananas per bunch.”
