The Harsh Realities Of Management

| Working | January 14, 2014

(I work at a 24 hour diner. It’s about 4 am Christmas morning.)

Me: “Thank you for calling [Diner]. Merry Christmas.”

Caller: “Um, hello?”

Me: “Yes, thank you for calling [Diner]. Merry Christmas. How may I help you.”

Caller: “Oh, making sure you are a real person. I take it you are open?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am. We never close!” *customer hangs up*

Coworker: “What was that about?”

Me: “It sounded like [Manager], but they asked if I was a real person?”

(A couple hours later, the manager walks in.)

Me: “Hey, [Manager]. Did you call here earlier to ask if I was real?”

Manager: “Umm… possibly.”
