Doesn’t Smile For The Photo

, , , , | Right | September 27, 2017

(I’m alone in the one-hour photo lab during senior photo season, covering the counter, cutting prints, and managing the machines. Several hours in with nonstop customers, I’m keeping up, but you can tell I’ve been getting slammed and not enjoying it. A teenage customer has just requested his photos…)

Customer’s Friend: *whispering to the customer* “And a smile would be nice.”

(I stare him down when I return to the counter, before holding the package out to the customer. He clearly looks uncomfortable as I do this, avoiding my eye contact.)

Me: “Please. Go on. I’d love to hear more of what you think.”

(Both lowered their heads and scurried off without another word.)
