Getting Yourself Out Of A Pickle

, , , , , , | Right | January 16, 2023

It was a pretty slow, boring day until the phone rang and my manager picked it up. I didn’t catch all of the conversation, but it went on for a while. I guess the person on the other end was getting aggressive or something because eventually, my manager said:

Manager: “I’m hanging up.”

The same person called — I’m not exaggerating — ten more times in the span of two minutes. I think they only stopped because my manager bit the bullet and answered the phone. As I was passing by, I heard this gem.

Manager: “Well, next time you come in, we’ll be sure to give you a pickle.”

Yes, you read that right. Apparently, this guy was freaking out because he didn’t get a pickle in his to-go order. “Don’t forget the pickle” became a running joke for a while after that.
