Sharing Is Caring, But Blaring Can Lead To Staring

, | Courtenay, BC, Canada | Working | April 12, 2013

(My coworker and I are both waiting on chicken burgers, for which there is a three minute wait. I only need one of the burgers while my coworker needs two. One that has been made for her is up.)

Me: “Hey [coworker], because you are waiting for a second chicken burger and I only need this one, can I have this one?”

Coworker: “No.”

Me: “Well, you’re waiting on the second one. So, it would be quicker for my customer if I took this one.”

Coworker: “I said no!”

Me: “So, you’re going to make both customers wait even though I can take that one?”

Coworker: “It’s MY burger!”

Me: “Yes, but then you could have mine.”

Coworker: “I DON’T CARE! THIS ONE IS MINE! YOU CAN’T HAVE MY BURGER! IT’S MINE!”

(At this point, all our coworkers in the back are watching. The customer in the drive-through also looks horrified, and the customers in the lobby are all staring.)

Me: “Okay…”

(The other two burgers come up; as I go to take one of the two fresh ones, my coworker snatches them both up first.)

Me: “…Those were mine.”

Coworker: “Whatever! Don’t be so childish!”

(Thankfully, my manager had some words with her and I got free food for trying to keep my calm and not raging.)
