Deli Employees Patience Wears As Thin As Sliced Turkey

, , , , | Working | May 4, 2020

My mom goes to the deli and orders a certain type of turkey but forgets to ask for it to be sliced thin. As the girl behind the counter starts slicing it, my mom speaks up.

Mom: “Oh, could you make sure to slice that thin, please?”

The girl keeps slicing and does not acknowledge that she heard anything, so my mom, thinking she must be too far away for the girl to have heard her properly, gets the attention of another deli worker walking by.

Mom: “Could you ask her to slice that thin, please?”

Girl Cutting Turkey: “I heard you!”

Mom: “Maybe let me know that, then!”
