They Have Maximum Expectations That You Should Stay In Minimum Wage

, , , | Right | May 19, 2020

I used to be a barista at a well-known coffee chain. Due to the abuse from customers, high stress, and incompetent managers, I finally quit and went back to school for a more professional job.

One of the regulars was always extremely picky and demanding and bought many drinks at a time. We all dreaded seeing her come in.

Several months after starting my new job, my boyfriend and I stop in at the coffee shop.

Regular Customer: “There you are! You’ve been gone forever.”

Me: “Yes! I finished school, and now I’m working at [Local Hospital], which is exciting for me.”

Regular Customer: “Hmph! It was awful after you left. You should have stayed because no one else made my drinks as well as you did!”

She then pays for her items and leaves.

Boyfriend: “Did she honestly expect you to stay here forever so you could serve her coffee?!”

Me: “Sadly, that isn’t the stupidest thing a customer has said to me.”
