    Customer: “Hi, I missed registration yesterday and I need to register my daughter for a beginning ballet class.”

    Customer: “Yeah, but I really want her in [my name]’s class…can you arrange that?”

    Coworker: “Well, okay let me…”

    Customer: “Where are your parents? And why didn’t they teach you any manners? You think you can just stand here, eating up this lady’s time. I have a job! I have better things to do than watch you listen to me!”

    Me: “Hi, I’m actually [my name]. You wanted to get into my class?”
