Running Low On The Milk Of Human Kindness

| Working | January 17, 2014

(We have just hired two brand new servers. Because of their inexperience, they are only waiting on one table at a time each, so I am somewhat busy.)

Me: “Hey, is anyone not busy right now?”

Coworker #1: “I’m not doing anything.”

Me: “Will you make me a strawberry milkshake?”

Coworker #1: “Sure!”

(I go to the back for a few minutes, then come back and check on the milkshake.)

Me: “How’s it going?”

Coworker #1: “It’s not.”

(She shows me the milkshake, which is far too thick.)

Me: “Oh, you didn’t put nearly enough milk!”

Coworker #1: “I KNEW IT!”

Me: “…what?”

Coworker #1: “I asked [Coworker #2] if milkshakes had milk, and she said no!”

Me: “Hey, [Coworker 2]! Just so you know, milkshakes need milk!”

Coworker #2: “What?”

Me: “Milkshakes need milk! [Coworker #1] said you told her they didn’t.”

Coworker #2: “Wait, she thought I was serious?!”
