Cry Me a River

Why must people piss me off so early in the morning?

This customer came in today, he's a regular, and this time he was drunk.

It's hit or miss with him. Sometimes he comes in drunk, other times he's fine. But when he's drunk, he likes to serenade us at the register.

He'll bust out in song and ask us if we take requests.

This customer is about 45 years old or so, and on one of his drunken mornings, asked my 80 year old co-worker for her phone number. She's innocent and didn't think anything of it, just figured he needed someone to talk to.

Well he did call her, and asked if she wanted to go out on a date! This guy is married with 3 kids, and tells us all the time about how his wife hates that he drinks and makes him sleep in the basement. Why she doesn't get rid of his drunk cheating ass, we will never know.

So anyways, he comes in today and makes a big deal about how I never say hi to him. It's 6 in the morning, I had a difficult time getting my ass out of bed, and I'm not in the mood for some shithead to harass me.

So I ignore him and he just comes closer. I tell him to step away from me so he starts yelling louder about how I won't talk to him, but at least he left after that.

I wasn't sure if he had been drunk or not, but my coworker said he reeked of stale alcohol. Maybe next time I'll just call the cops on him. Then his wife can let him sleep in jail for awhile.


  1. This guy is a mess. I feel sorry for his wife and kids. Wait, I feel sorry for all of you having to put up with his sorry ass too. Just saying.

    Have a terrific day and I'm sure you will right after your shift is over. :)

  2. Do you know, people behaving like that really bother me. I am embarrassed for them and I just want them to go away. Not sure the police would do much but it might give him pause if they came to talk to him.

  3. I would just call the cops and let them deal with him. You don't need that crap.

  4. Hopefully he is walking and not driving, either way though he is a hazard on the road. Folks are funny to me.

    Peace, Love and Chocolate

  5. We would get people like that when I worked at A&W, many years ago. I lived in a touristy beach town and every day/night was party time for them. I always had the morning shift and in would stumble the drunks at 7am, bleary-eyed and just reeking of booze. Obviously hadn't been to bed yet and the munchies were kicking in so they wanted their breakfast. I was too timid and "nice" back then to say anything about their loud, obnoxious behaviour, the stumbling and annoying attempted conversations. But one co-worker, I loved when she was on shift with me, she didn't take crap from noone and she would literally stand at the door when she saw them walking up the restaurant and flat-out refuse to let them in, "No drunks allowed on the premises!" and they would meekly turn around because she was a TANK. Haha.
