Joy To The World, Except You

, , , , | Right | December 24, 2019

(I’m at a restaurant where my server is a young woman named Joy. I hear her talking to the table next to me that just came in.)

Server: “Welcome to [Restaurant]. My name is Joy; I’ll be taking care of you tonight.”

Customer: “Your name is Joy?”

Server: “Yep.”

Customer: “Are you joyful?”

Server: *being polite* “I think most of the time, but there are moments when I’m not.”

Customer: “Are you going to serve us joyfully?”

Server: “I’ll try.”

Customer: “Do you enjoy being a server?”

Server: *passing around the coasters* “It pays for college.”

Customer: “Do you like Christmas? There’s lots of joy then!”

Server: “I do like Christmas. Can I get you started with some drinks?”

Customer: “Which drink would make me the most joyful?”

(It went on and on like this. She kept her cool the entire time. I wonder if he also does this to people named Hope or Faith.)
