Betrayed By Coffee

| Working | September 9, 2015

(I’m a new hire as a waitress. My job is to make sure the elderly residents have anything they need to eat and drink, at all times.)

Me: *going around the dining room* “Do you need anything? Can I get you some more coffee?”

All Residents: “No thanks, we’re good.”

(I stand and wait. A minute later, my supervisor spots me standing there, and storms up.)

Supervisor: “What’re you doing? We don’t pay you stand around looking pretty, understand?! You’re supposed to find out what the residents need!”

Me: “But I just asked them and they said they were fine.”

Supervisor: “Liar!”

Me: “I did. Look, they’ll tell you.” *calls out the elderly residents* “Does anyone need anything?”

Them: “No, we said we’re fine!”

Me: “See?”

Supervisor: *sputters* “Well… you’re… supposed to…”

(Suddenly, one elderly resident calls out.)

Elderly Resident: “Actually, could you give me some coffee?”

Supervisor: “Ha! See?”

Me: “…”

(Afterward, I was written up for not doing anything and ignoring the supervisor’s commands.)
