    Starting A New Year Revolution

    , | OH, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink, Holidays, Theme Of The Month

    (It is New Year’s Day. The restaurant that I work in closes its dining room at 10 pm because of this. The manager has informed me that she’ll close it sooner if no one arrives. At 8:30 pm, a customer comes into the store, orders, then takes a seat. I go to clean a nearby table, since it is quiet.)

    Customer: “Ma’am, what time do you close?”

    Me: “We’re closing at 10 tonight. Maybe a bit sooner if it’s quiet enough.”

    (The customer gets a shocked look on her face. She starts packing up.)

    Me: “Ma’am, what’s wrong?”

    Customer: “I don’t want to hold you up! You have to go celebrate the New Year with your family!”

    (I convince her to relax and stay, since it is over an hour until we would close. However, since then, the customer comes at nights through the drive-thru, not wanting to hold up the dining room!)
