Not Very Closed-Minded, Part 33

, , , | Right | July 2, 2019

(I work at a pizza place that does orders over the phone. It’s a Saturday night and about ten minutes from our closing time — 11 pm — when we get a phone call and my coworker answers. She then comes up to me, clearly distressed, to tell me what happened.)

Coworker: “So, you know that phone call we just got?”

Me: “Yeah?”

Coworker: “Well, this lady called, but she wasn’t calling in an order. She wanted to dine in and got upset when I told her that we wouldn’t stay open just so she could come in from half an hour away and eat here.”

Me: “That’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard. You have no reason to feel bad.”

Coworker: *still a little upset because she doesn’t like people being mad at her* “Yeah, but she got so angry at me when I told her we wouldn’t stay open just for her.”

Me: “I would’ve been way more upset at you if you had told her we would.”
