Balking At Your Talking

| Right | February 27, 2015

(It is morning, and all the guests are eating breakfast. Since no one is asking for service, I relax and chat with my coworker. A man and woman come up, with annoyed expressions.)

Man: “Hey, you!”

Me: “Yes? Can I help you with something?”

Man: “Yes! You can help by not talking to your friend!”

Me: “You mean, my coworker?”

Woman: “Yes! Her! You’re supposed to work here, not chit chatting! I’ll be telling your manager about you slacking off!”

Man: “What kind of service is this, where the workers just chatter on?”

Me: “Well, I was just talking with my coworker here since there was no one in line or at the counter.”

Man: “No, I don’t want you to do that! It’s very rude!”

Me: “So…  you don’t want me to talk to my coworker?”

Woman: “Yes, exactly! You are here to serve us! Nothing else! You hear me?”

(They storm off, very incensed.)

Manager: “What was that all about?”

(They did complain, and their complaints were laughed off.)
