What A Pretentious Drip

, , , , | Working | November 1, 2017

(I am youngish-looking, so I often get bad service from places like banks or upper-class restaurants who think I’m just some teenage girl who can’t afford their services and is a waste of their time. It is raining really hard, so I decide to go get a coffee and shelter in a cafe. There is only one employee in there at the time, but it isn’t busy so I get to order right away.)

Employee: “You’re wet.”

Me: “Yes, it’s been raining all day.”

Employee: “Yeah, but you’re wet.”

Me: “I just escaped from the rain.”

Employee: “You’re dripping.”

Me: “Oh, sorry about that. Unfortunately, it rains so often here.”

Employee: “You’re dripping.”

Me: “Sir, can I order now?”

Employee: “But you’re dripping all over my floor.”

Me: “Sir?”

Employee: “Yes?”

Me: “When every other customer came in today, were they wet, and did they drip?”

Employee: “Yes.”

Me: “Did you tell each of them that they were wet and dripping, and expect them to apologize for it?”

Employee: “No.”

Me: “Well, then, can I order my coffee now?”
