Manager: *To me* “No, don’t apologize to them.” *To the customer* “Apologize to my employee for calling her an idiot.”

Customer: “I will not! If you don’t want them called idiots, then don’t hire idiots!”

Manager: “You watch us make the sandwich in front of you, and yet you didn’t get what you ordered?”
