I HATE when customers do that. And we have Splenda on the side, yet the seem adamant that *we* do it, as if my adding and stirring that toxic waste in myself will make it taste better.
EXACTLY. It depends on my mood. Like, if you’re a sweet little old man, I’ll probably do it. If you have a broken arm, I’ll do it. If you are in no way incapacitated and you’re demanding I put in 2 1/2 splenda packets, you can do it your damn self.
This couple walks up to order. The man orders 2 large coffees, and the woman orders a medium latte. I start steaming the milk for the latte (for those of you who don’t know, espresso machines make noise, it’s not deafening or anything, but it is quite loud), and while I’m doing that, I pour the 2 coffees. In between me finishing filling the coffees and walking them to the counter (not even a half of a second), the woman goes “OOOHH put a splenda into my latte!” I put the coffees on the counter and she goes “Oh good, here it is, did you put the splenda in?”
1, you can hear the espresso machine. It isn’t quiet. You can SEE the espresso machine from where you’re standing. 2, those are 2 large cups, you ordered a medium. 3, IN THE HALF SECOND IT TOOK ME TO TURN AROUND AND PUT THE CUPS ON THE COUNTER, AT WHAT POINT WOULD I HAVE HAD TIME TO PUT A SPLENDA IN? What kind of space time continuum do you operate within?
It is amazing to me how stupid people are sometimes.
A tattoo is permanent. Very permanent. If not permanent, at least very expensive both initially and to have removed (not to mention painful both times).
If your main language is English, and you fuck up a foreign language tattoo, that sucks.
But if you actually speak english, and you misspell a word on your own body, you deserve the ridicule that goes along with your dumb mistake for the rest of your life. I just saw a tattoo with the words “My Theif” under it. Wouldn’t you want to spell-check that shit before deciding it was a good idea to have it tattooed? It’s not even that hard. I don’t know about your guys’ computers, but just typing it the way it’s typed above produces a little red squiggly line under it. It’s my computer’s way of saying, “hey, dumb fuck, that’s not how that word is spelled”.
How do these people get through life?
"It looks great in person!" aside from the fact that now everyone can tell how stupid you are before you open your mouth.
“There are about three hundred billion stars to a galaxy, and more than eighty billion galaxies in the known universe. That means that if only one in a million planets can support life, and one in a million of those actually HAS life, and one in a million of THOSE planets has INTELLIGENT life… then there are at least one and a half million civilizations out there.”—Neal Shusterman, “Everfound”
