When Life Doesn’t Give You Lemonade…

, , , , | Right | January 2, 2021

I’m the assistant manager at a popular fast food restaurant. A customer comes in and asks for a lemonade. It’s important to note that we have a self-serve Coca-Cola Freestyle machine in our dining room with Minute Maid lemonade, and behind our service counter, we have a fresh lemonade bubbler that customers can order from. The bubbler lemonade has an upcharge because it is better quality than the Minute Maid lemonade.

Me: “Hi, welcome to [Restaurant]. What can I get started for you?”

Older Man: “Your f****** lemonade is out!”

This means that we have none in the store until our truck comes in two days.

Me: “I apologize, sir, but that means I won’t have any lemonade for another couple of days. Our Freestyle machine has over five-thousand different combinations, and you are more than welcome to select a different beverage in our dining room.”

Older Man: “F*** that s***. Give me that lemonade behind you.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but there is an upcharge for that lemonade. I can certainly pour you a glass if you don’t mind paying the upcharge.”

Older Man: “I am not paying a f****** upcharge because your gay a** doesn’t have my drink. Give the s*** to me for free.”

Me: “I won’t be doing that today, sir. Help yourself to any drinks out there. Have a great day.”

I then walk away and go back to our dish area, out of customer view. As I walk away, all I can hear is:

Older Man: “F*** you, you [homophobic slur]!”
