Some Customers Are Complete Trash

, | Australia | Right | April 24, 2017

I work part-time at a well-known fast food restaurant. After a busy lunch period, I’m in the dining room cleaning up. The floor is absolutely filthy after having some 2500 people through the doors in around two hours or so.

After changing bins and clearing tables, I sweep and mop the entire floor. While I am doing this, a female customer is watching me from a nearby table with her two small children. They eat their meals and linger for a while, with the mother continuing to watch me and the two children playing with the toys that came with their meals.

It takes me about 45 minutes to finish sweeping and mopping the floor. I finally finish the last corner and just as I’m putting the mop back in the bucket, the woman stands up with her two kids and begins to walk towards me carrying their tray. I am standing near the bins, so I think nothing of it.

They stopped next to the bins, and the mother made eye contact with me, pulled the lid off her almost full large soda and poured the entire thing on the floor, never breaking eye contact. She then dropped the cup, lid, and straw, as well as the entire tray of rubbish, onto the ground into the soda, and then proceeded to walk over it, and out of the store. I was too shocked to even respond.

Not A Co-Ed Bed

, | USA | Learning | April 21, 2017

I attend a women’s college for my undergraduate degree, and understood before moving in that there are some pretty simple rules in place for the dorms concerning guests (i.e. boys). Unfortunately, there are many freshmen students who have trouble either understanding or following the rules. I don’t mind them, but apparently some girls thought it is more important to sneak their boyfriends into the dorms instead of going three miles down the road to the co-ed state college.

Then came the night when the fire department showed up at 1:30 am, because a freshman girl tried to hide her boyfriend in her fold-up bed and he got stuck inside. They had to completely remove the bed from the wall to get him out!

Libraries: The New Google!

I work in a library.

A guy from Florida called because he found a painting in his mother in law’s garage and wanted to know what kind of turkey was in it.

Answer Your Calling

, | Salt Lake City, UT, USA | Working | April 20, 2017

I work at a large multi-national company. The culture there is that if you needed to communicate with someone, no matter if they were in your time-zone or not, you picked up the phone and called.

One evening, after I have gone home for the day, the phone rings. It is my manager, who lives and works in Australia. He is calling me, after hours, at home, to tell me that someone is going to call me, the next week, to talk with me about something. After I hang up, I tell my roommate about the call and say: “I think that an email would have been more practical and a lot less expensive.”

To this day, I have no idea what they (whoever was supposed to call) were going to talk to me about because they never did call.

The Town Suffers From Brown-Outs

, | Canada | Related | April 19, 2017

I grew up in a small town that is primarily Caucasian. When I was three years old my mom took me to a mall that had a much more diverse community. Being that young I don’t remember what happened that day but my mom will never forget that trip.

Apparently I looked around and shouted: “Mommy this is just like [Town] mall except for all the brown people!”
