Manners Are Not Selling Like Hot Cakes

, , , , , | Right | September 14, 2018

(I work in a fast food restaurant. A lady comes in with an order of hotcakes. There doesn’t seem to be anything physically wrong with them. One of the seasoned managers walks up to her.)

Manager: “Is there something I can help you with?”

Woman: “Yeah, there wasn’t any butter or syrup in my bag, and these hotcakes are cold.”

Manager: “Okay, let me fix that for you.”

(The manager attempts to grab the hotcakes from the woman to fix the order, who wrenches them back and causes the platter to bend and almost break.)

Woman: “I’m sorry, but I’m from the south where we have manners.”

(The manager lets it go and goes to get the woman new hotcakes. The front counter runner and the manager both put new hotcakes, syrup, and butter on a tray for the woman who takes them with a rude-a** smile on her face. Now, this isn’t the best way to respond, but the manager has had enough of this lady’s attitude.)

Manager: “If you were really from the south, then your mama would have smacked you for not respecting your elders.”
