Their Acting Is On Fire(d) Tonight

, , , , , , | Right | April 2, 2018

(It is near the end of my shift on my last day, and I am taking orders at the counter. I have been helping a customer with a thick accent which I am having trouble understanding. Although I have tried to be polite, it is obvious he is getting frustrated, and he has asked to see a manager.)

Manager: “What seems to be the problem?”

Customer: “This boy is incompetent. I have been trying to order for over ten minutes. I make over 100k, and my time is very valuable. I demand you fire him.”

Manager: “Okay. [My Name], go home. You can pick up your last paycheck on Friday.”

Me: *over-acting* “What about my wife and kids? I need this job!”

Manager: *also over-acting* “You should have thought about that before upsetting this fine gentleman who makes over 100k.”

(Mimicking Hollywood movies, I fell to my knees and yelled, “NOOOO!” to the ceiling. My manager laughed and gave me a hand up. We “bro-hugged” and I clocked out. The bewildered look on that customer’s face is one of my favorite work memories.)
