His Heart Just Wasn’t In It

, , , , , , | Right | June 9, 2010

(A customer looks like he is in a huge hurry. After five minutes of looking at the menu, he orders a grilled sandwich.)

Me: “It will take a little longer for the grilling.”

Customer: “I only have five minutes.”

Me: “Well, I suggest you not get it grilled because it will take about eight minutes.”

Customer: “I want it grilled and I want it in five minutes!”

(After five minutes of the customer pacing up and down, he comes up to the counter.)

Customer: “I need the sandwich now!”

Me: “Okay, it’s being wrapped up for you sir.”

Customer: “I am a heart surgeon, and I have a critical patient that I’m supposed to be operating on right now! I was supposed to be there a half-hour ago!”

(I give him his sandwich and he hurries out the door. Five minutes later, he rushes back through the door.)

Customer: “I need extra Russian dressing!”
