(One of my best friends and I work at an ice rink. It’s the end of the last session and I’m waiting around for her to finish cutting the ice so we can go home. There are only about 5 customers still in the rink so I decide to have a bit of fun. As she finishes I turn on the announcement speaker.)

Me: (Friend), you didn’t do a very good job cutting the ice. You’ve missed several spots. This is not acceptable. Please return to the office immediately.

(My friend laughs and flips me the bird. As she is walking back to the office she stops to pick up some rubbish.

Me: *Through the speaker* (Friend), this is taking far too long. Come back to the office now!

(She finishes picking up the rubbish but stops to talk to another employee. I’m trying really hard not to burst out laughing as I turn on the speaker again.)

Me: (Friend), stop talking to (coworker) and do your job!

(Suddenly one of the customers starts yelling)

Customer: STOP YELLING AT HER! SHE IS DOING HER DAMN JOB! JUST LEAVE HER ALONE!

(I’m momentarily shocked before I completely lose it. My friend comes into the office and gives me a punch in the arm.)

Friend: You’re such a bitch!

Me: Oh my god, did you hear that lady out there? She thought I was being serious! She was getting so angry at me!

Friend: Well at least someone thinks I’m doing a good job!

(We had a good laugh before leaving to get dinner)
