Some People Just Want To Watch The World Burn, Part 14

, , , , , | Right | February 4, 2022

One crabby old lady has gained a little reputation among us for her insane nastiness. Despite coming back again and again, she ALWAYS finds some tiny thing to raise a huge stink over.

I am taking her breakfast order in the drive-thru. She holds up her phone just as I’m taking her card and about to pay her out.

Customer: “I’ve got a $5 reward here.”

Me: “Okay, one second.”

Luckily for her, it’s not too late, so I apply the $5 reward.

Me: “That’ll be [total under $10].”

Customer: “What? That’s still too expensive!”

Me: “Well, you did order our breakfast combo with the coffee, and that includes tax.”

Customer: “That’s still too much money! Let me see the receipt.”

I pass her the receipt along with her card. She studies the fine print intently.

Customer: “Your prices shouldn’t be this high! I shouldn’t be paying this much for this kind of food! I’ll be calling corporate about this today!”

Me: “Okay.”

I hand over her food and coffee.

Customer: “Is there cream and sugar in this coffee?”

Me: “Yes, I believe so.”

Someone else prepared the coffee for me, but I trust my coworker.

Customer: “There’d better be!” *Gazing into her bag* “And there’s only one napkin in here, and no knife to spread the mustard. They never give me enough napkins here!”

The utensils and napkins are right behind me.

Me: “Hold on. I’ll grab you some.”

I give her a full knife, fork, and spoon set, along with a small handful of fresh napkins. She doesn’t thank me as she takes them. These are her final words before she drives off.

Customer: “You people are always giving me a hard time, every single time I come here!”

Me: *Biting my tongue like a piece of gum* “Have a nice day, ma’am.”

Guess some folks really have nothing better to do… and I wouldn’t want to deprive them of one of the few pleasures they’ve got left.
