Why is it some people's goal to piss me off in the morning? I'm fucking tired, people, at least wait until the sun is out to mess with me.
I had this customer come in the other day. He was my first customer of the day, actually. He was walking up to me carrying two plastic bottles of Arizona Iced Tea. However, he was holding one of them sideways and I could see that it was dripping all over the floor.
"What are you doing?" I asked, knowing exactly what he was doing.
"This one is leaking," he said, still holding it sideways. "I wanted to show you."
"Okay, well you could have just told me it was leaking instead of showing me. Now you're making a mess and I have to clean it up." God, I hate people.
"Sorry, I just wanted to show you what it was doing."
"I know what a leaky bottle looks like. Turn it back up and stop spilling it everywhere," I said, now thoroughly pissed off.
I think my customers take pleasure in seeing me get angry. I wonder what happens when this guy is at home: "Honey, the baby shit itself. Let me hold up the diaper so you can see it."
Bottom line: Don't make a mess that I have to clean up. If you tell me it's leaking, I'm probably going to believe you. Don't hold it up to show me. I'm not the idiot here.
I was hoping he'd trip on the mess on his way out, but I could only be so lucky.
