It’s A Cottage Industry

, , , | Right | August 2, 2018

(I work in a coffee shop in cottage country. It’s the weekend of May 1st when this happens in the drive-thru.)

Customer: “Oh, my God! I was in the line-up for ten minutes! Why is this taking so long?”

Me: *looks at the line-up of cars backed out to the road* “Sir, it’s our busiest weekend of the year.”

Customer: “So?”

Me: “The store is packed, the drive-thru and inside.”

Customer: “Really?” *peers inside*

Me: “This is cottage country, and everyone is heading up for the weekend.”

Customer: “Is it?”

Me: *sighs* “Here’s your total. Have a nice day.”

Customer: “Yeah! You need to speed up; this store sucks!” *drives off*
