Just some thoughts:
“Are you the owner of this place?”
That is what I heard a lady say this morning as I stepped away from the cashier at my coffee place. By the tone of her voice I thought, “I’m sure glad I’m not the owner or the manager, neither one.”
The party answered the lady telling her he was not the owner but he was the manager and could he help her in some way. “Yes you can, you need to tell your people to put more cream cheese on these bagels. This is awful. Also, cream cheese should be spread evenly and at least one inch thick all over a bagel. One inch thick” And she said this in “no certain terms.” Wow.
The manager was very nice to her he did say, “We instruct our help to put two scoops of cream cheese on all our bagels but if you would like more I will certain see that you get such.”
As I stepped away and went to a table to sit down I thought to myself:
“Lady are you kidding me? You must be a piece of work.” This early in the morning and you are complaining about cream cheese on a bagel and that it is not thick enough nor spread evenly.
You ever wanted to say to someone, “Why don’t you go walk the halls of a local hospital, or visit a rehab center, or a nursing home, or..or…” I’m sorry but I don’t have a lot of patience with folks complaining about “How their cream cheese appears on their bagel.”
You ever stop and think about the things man/ we complain about?
