(I am ordering coffee at a coffee shop located on my community college campus.)
Barista: “Hey, [My Name]. I love that bracelet you’re wearing!”
(The barista points to the silicone rainbow wristband on my right wrist.)
Customer Behind Me: “Where did you get it?”
Me: “It was from a group that gave them out a couple years back. But they’re not doing them any more, due to financial problems.”
Customer Behind Me: “Oh, so I couldn’t get one?”
Me: “No, sorry.”
(The customer keeps eyeing the wristband as we wait for our drinks. It’s slightly strange but I don’t say anything.)
Barista: “[My Name], latte’s up!”
Me: “Thanks, [Barista’s Name]. You have a good—”
(As I reach for my drink, the customer behind me steps forward and starts actually pulling on my arm to get the wristband off. I’m right handed and my HOT drink ends up spilling all over the floor and her.)
Customer Behind Me: “I HATE ALL OF YOU! F*** THIS!”
(The customer runs away, while the barista and I just kind of blink for a while.)
Barista: “I have no words right now. I’ll make you another drink.”
(I am in line waiting to be checked out for some items. The customer ahead of me has paid for his merchandise. As he takes his change he strikes up a conversation between himself and the young female clerk.)
Customer: “I was wondering, are you going to be open on Thanksgiving? I know some stores are starting to do that.”
Clerk: *sighs* “Yes, sir. We’re open until 8 pm.”
Customer: “Well, that’s certainly some bull-s*** right there!”
Clerk: *laughing* “I’m not allowed to comment, sir.”
Customer: “Well, I am. Please tell your boss you got some resoundingly negative feedback from a customer over that. And, while you’re at it, tell him the same customer gave you a resoundingly POSITIVE feedback on your service. You’re a very nice young lady. I hope you prosper in life.”
(The customer then walks out, leaving the clerk and I to look at each other in mutual confusion.)
Clerk: “Well, that apparently just happened.”
