The other day a customer came in and asked for beef (remember, I work in a curry house where you choose your own meat or vegetable toppings) and so I asked what spice level he would like and he said level two, and then I followed up with what rice size he would like — and he responded by setting the menu down, crossing his arms and condescendinly saying “did I ever say I wanted rice? No. Why can’t you hear the words coming from my mouth?” then waved me away
I almost cried
A few weeks ago my friends and I went for some boba after an unfinished game of bowling. The boba place had to close so after we got our drinks, we went outside and sat at a table directly in front of the storefront windows. We told ghost stories until maybe 2am (?) and during that time, Paul took pictures of us and in this photo (I’m sitting just right of the shot) you can see a very distinct hand in the glass window behind my friend. But in other pictures, the hand is not there.
- Liz: Have you heard of Blogilates?
- Me: Is it a blog about Pilates?
- Liz: YES!
- Me: no
I was at work today (as per usual) and these two people sat down by the window and I immediately recognized the girl but wasn’t confident enough to approach her. I say this because just the other week, I was so sure that this one customer was my old coworker from the Hawaiian restaurant I used to work at but it wasn’t. The embarrassing part is that I was so positive that it was Myles that I just would no let it go and kept saying “aren’t you Myles? Don’t you remember me? I used to work with you”. They had a great time laughing at me after.
Anyway this girl today was also staring at me so I was telling all my coworkers that I think I know this girl and when I was cleaning the big table nearby, she got up and was like “I’m sorry to bother you but I follow you on tumblr”— it was Alyssa! (awkwardness) We’ve been following each other for years and it was so nice finally meeting her and I’m really sorry I could hang around to talk more!
Alyssa, you’re a lot taller than I imagined (despite me saying “you’re exactly as I imagined”)
