Those in line at the cafeteria stood watching a woman arguing with the serves. “I didn’t ask if it’s tomato. I asked if there’s pepper in it.”
“There’s no pepper in it,” the server said.
“Probably full of pepper,” the customer snarled. Then she grabbed the soup bowl being handed to the man in front of her and plopped it on her own tray. When the gentleman asked for another order of soup, the women slammed his bowl back on his tray. “Oh, take it,” She growled.
“Is that spinach? “she asked the next server. “Well, I don’t want any” Moving to the next server, she blurted, What flavor is that dessert”
“It’s lime,” the server replied.
“I hate lime. I want mint, not lime. Can’t you do anything right? If I wanted lime I would have asked for it. How ‘bout that applesauce?”
“What about it?”
“Do I have to spell everything out for you? I want some applesauce, but only if it doesn’t have cinnamon in it. But it probably does, so forget it!”
Stupid women, huh? Very irritating. The problem with this customer was the she really didn’t know what she wanted. Because of this, she made life miserable for the poor servers behind the counter as well as the others waiting in line.
Sometimes juniors get confused. They aren’t quite sure what they want, so they argue and fume, concluding that their parents and teachers are real dorks. They think the word is against them. It’s not, and the confusion won’t last. If you’re not sure what you want, don’t insist that everyone try to figure it out for you. Be patient, not irritating.
