The Importance Of Making Sandwiches

, , , , | Right | December 26, 2017

(I work at a well-known sandwich restaurant. I’ve been on my feet for eight hours without a break. I’m rather tired. A man in a fancy business suit walks up in a huff and looks at me funny.)

Me: “Welcome to [Restaurant].”

Customer: “Yeah, yeah.”

Me: “How are you today?”

Customer: “Tired. I’ve been working all day and only had a couple breaks.”

Me: “Yeah, I know how you feel; I’m tired, too. What can—”

Customer: “What would you know about being tired? It’s not like your job is important; you just make sandwiches for people all day. That’s not important.”

Me: *a little stunned* “Well, if my job isn’t important, then make your own sandwich.”

(I backed away from the counter and walked into the back room. The guy stood there for a good three minutes before realizing that I was not coming back. He finally left, but not before spewing out some profanity.)
