(I’m having an absolutely miserable day at work… I’m the only one on and there’s easily 5 people’s worth of work to get done before a delivery tomorrow, “Aunt Flo” is on her way into town, my boyfriend and I are struggling financially, and to top it all off I potentially broke a finger and there’s nobody to come relieve me. It is a beautiful, sunny afternoon and I’m all but in tears by the time this gentleman walks in)

Me: *as cheerily as possible* Hey! How’s it going today?

Him: Things are great! Thanks for being here today. I’m sure there’s a ton of things you’d rather be doing but it means a lot that you’d give up your Sunday to be at work. Keep it up!!

(It’s the appreciation of my customers that keep me busting my butt, despite a minor injury and despite a complete disregard for my personal life by the corporate office. Thank you, sir, that was exactly what I needed to hear to stay motivated).

This happened during the closing shift of a restaurant in California.

Customer: Hi, do you have any soups available?

Me: I apologize but all of our soups were gone since 1:30PM.

Customer: So you don’t have any soups and closed the station early.

Me: No, We make our soups from scratch and served a lot of soup on our catering orders and also in-store today. So we ran out of all of the soups at 1:30PM today.

(Customer gives a smirk and decides that she’ll order at the kiosk).

Customer: OK, I’ll just order a salad instead, and after a few minutes… I’ll just order at the kiosk.

Me: Sure, go ahead.

* After several minutes, the customer was ordering on our kiosk, and I was doing closing procedures in the lobby and front counter section (cleaning and closing down). Customer sat down in the dining area, and waiting until her order is ready.

After a few seconds, a receipt was printed and saw she ordered a scone.

Me: I approached to her politely. I’m sorry we are out of cranberry scones, but we have a special BOGO cookies.

Customer: But this is what I ordered… don’t you have any?

Me: No, we don’t I can walk you through the bakery case, and get you any cookies and discount for BOGO.

Customer: Customer was demanding and still wanted a scone… I could see her eyes that she was begging.

Me: Hold on a few seconds let me get a manager…

*The manager talked to her about apologizing most of the pastries, scones are out, and he offered Buy 2 cookies and get one Free to replace the scone she ordered.

Manager: Hi, I’m sorry but we are out of the cranberry scone that you ordered, and can definitely replace that with cookies on our bakery case. He said we are out of scones, and they both approached the bakery case, and switched to Get 3 cookies for FREE. The customer still made excuses about BF not liking any of cookies. (It seemed she can’t decide for herself). It took several minutes after describing what kind of cookies we have in the case.

**Transaction was made after. Of course, I remained firm and polite to the customer.

**After I got the cookies and gave it to her in the lobby area. She asked me of what kind of syrups we have for hot drinks.

Me: I told her just come again at my register and would be easier for both of us what she wants.

(We offer more than 15 types of syrup, and it has been 2 months I have worked there.) Asked her what would you like to drink?

I only suggested hazelnut and vanilla, and was trying to jog my memory and almost said the other options to her.

Customer: OK, I want a vanilla and hazelnut latte.

Me: So you want a hot latte with 1 pump hazelnut and 1 pump vanilla.

Customer:Yes, with soy milk

Me: OK

**I did another transaction with her. But I still remained calm and composed.

Then her order was ready, and the manager was still on the floor. And gave her order, and also swiped the table for her too.

After 1 hour…

Customer: Can I have this to go?

Manager and Me: Sure.

Manager: Manager asked if he wants it to do it.

Me: Sure… (I was still cleaning and doing some closing procedures at the front counter area. Even dealing with customers like taking their orders)

**Manager wrapped the sandwich for her, and thanked her.

After a few minutes, as she walked out the door.

Me: Thank you…See you next week.

Customer: She smirks and gave a face where she doesn’t care and says OK???

My gym teacher seems to not like me very much and from the first day of school hasn’t been very nice to any of his students, but especially me. He skips class whenever we have health so we all have gotten almost no health lessons all year, which already makes me not like him. He also has completely ignored my past injury (I broke my foot and the doctor said it would never heal) so that just makes me dislike him even more. I was sitting out one day just casually playing on my phone because what else could I do? when this happened:

Teacher: [My Name], you need to participate.

Me: I can’t, my foot-

(He cuts me off)

Teacher: You can’t just sit out, you need to get off your phone and participate in class!

Me (getting really frustrated): My foot is hurting today-

(He cuts me off again)

Teacher (practically yelling at this point): You need to participate or you need to go to the administrative office!

(I try to explain again but I can hardly get one word out before he cuts me off again, so I start treating him like he’s treating me and ignore him. At this point the other students near us had stopped what they were doing and were listening)

Teacher: [My Name]! You need to get up!

Me (Actually yelling now because he was frustrating me so much): I’m SORRY that I broke my foot, it’ll never heal and it’s hurting!!

Teacher: Leave right now or I will call security.

(I was so shocked that he threatened to call security that I left without a word, went to the bathroom to be alone, texed my mom what happened. She called the school to set up an appointment with the assistant principal. He sent his assistant down to unlock the locker room so I could get my backpack and he showed me where the assistant principal’s office is. I filled out a witness report that got what happened in writing in case the assistant principal forgot something and got my mom to pick me up early. For the rest of the week I stayed out of his class but when I had to go back, he was being overly nice, he probably got yelled at by the assistant principal, and wrote me a pass to the library so I could work on some homework if I wasn’t going to participate in class. The next day, he gave me a packet on the rules, history and how to play soccer and sent me to the library for the week so I was at least learning about the unit the other students were doing. That is what I’ve been doing since then. It’s been over a week, but it still makes me uncomfortable being around him.)

My little sister was watching Phineas and Ferb special episode with characters of Marvel while my other sister and I had dinner.

Me: That’s impossible! They can’t trade powers because not all of them have powers!

Sister: I know right! If they’re going to do it they should do it right.

Me: Yeah, Iron Man doesn’t have powers.

Little Sister: Iron Man does have powers! He can fly!

Me: It’s just the suit, it’s all technology…well, I guess his super power can be his mind.

Little Sister: Oh yeah! And his good looking-ness!

Never been so proud :’) lol

(This story takes place on April 20, which is the unofficial International Marijuana Day.)

Friend 1 (to Friend 2): You might want to get out quick after school’s over. There are probably going to be a bunch of drug deals around here.

Friend 2: Um… why?

Me: Because it’s 4/20. Weed day, you know?

Friend 2: Oooh.

Friend 1: OH MY GOD [My Name], DON’T DO DRUGS!

Me: I won’t, I swear!

Friend 3: Yeah, [My Name], you better not!

Me: Do I seem like the kind of person who would buy weed? Haven’t I already told you that I’m not interested in that type of thing?

Friend 1: Well, you never know.
