Telling The Time Has Clocked Out

, , , , | Right | July 9, 2018

(I’m working at a restaurant. The phone rings with a customer who wants to place a to-go order. At the end of conversations like this, we always read back the order, and tell them the total and how long it will take to be ready. This call takes place at 5:50 pm.)

Me: “All right, ma’am, your total is [total], and it’ll be ready in about 25 minutes.”

Customer: “No! I need it to be ready at quarter after six.”

(She gets really upset, and is adamant that the order be ready at quarter after six, not realizing that that’s exactly 25 minutes from now.)

Me: “Okay, thanks. Bye.”

(I hung up.)
