Anxiety That Gets You Through The Day

, , , , , , | Working | November 24, 2020

I’m at our main ticket booth, and the captain for one of our private charter cruises is hanging out waiting for his guests to arrive. He witnesses my encounter with a phenomenally stupid guest and my obvious urge to beat my head against a wall.

Captain: “So, what are your coping mechanisms for dealing with wanting to yell at guests?”

Me: “The certain knowledge that if I yell at guests I’ll probably get fired.”

Coworker: “Anxiety.”

Me: “Yeah. Anxiety.”

Captain: “I’m not sure I like those answers.”
