Conversation between me and the girl working the drive-thru at Burger King:
Girl: Mwhaksjl Whopper nkfska adsndk jdajj?
Me: I’m sorry, I couldn’t hear what you asked me?
Girl: I said “WOULD YOU LIKE THE WHOPPER WITH CHEESE MEAL TODAY?”
Me: Yes, that is actually what I was going to get. I would like my burger with Ketchup, mayonnaise and lettuce with a Diet Coke please.
Girl: mhweljfh mnldakh cheese adklsad diet hajwof. cndkseu djalkdjw first jdaksdj. msfhjkdfisy tisifh khdf $5fjsdfhid.
I drive up to the first window.
Me: I’m sorry, Five what?
Girl: (with a big groan) $5.35!
I hand her my money and she hands me my receipt and a straw. I take it from her and put my wallet into my purse and then notice my cell phone on the seat. I put in my purse (while I am waiting on my food). When I finish I look up at the window and the girl is leaning on the counter with her chin in her hand and staring at me as if to say “Lady, how long are you going to take just sitting there?”
Me: Oh, I’m sorry. (Realizing that I was supposed to drive to the second window)
Girl: Gives a weak smile (as if saying “Yeah whatever”)
I want to know something from you, the wise internet, whatever happened to people being nice to the customers and being grateful that they have a job? Could she have not just said “Ma’am you can pull to window two to get your food.”? That’s all I’m saying. Very simple. I had to bite my tongue not to tell her to cheer up and act like she is enjoying herself. When I was that age and was working retail or fast food restaurants we would told to always be nice and that customers were always right. If you did not act properly with customers you were reprimanded. Today’s generation has not been taught that. No one wants to work anymore. It’s pitiful. I am going to teach my children to respect others and be grateful for the things that you have.
I took Hurricane A to the doctor this morning. She has had a rash on and off for a week and a half on her hands and arms. For about a week before that she had a rash on her cheeks. A friend of mine mentioned that it looked like she had Fifths Disease. I got home and looked it up on the internet and sure enough that is exactly what it sounded like. According to that information once you developed this rash you were no longer contagious. The rash on her face appeared for about 2 weeks and went away. Shortly after that she developed the rash on her hands. I assumed it was something different since there was a couple of days in between them. What was so strange was that this rash would come and leave as quickly as it appeared. For instance, I made her appointment this morning and then went to wake her up. The rash was not there and I even reconsidered taking her today. She took a bath and then I rubbed lotion on her hands. As I am rubbing in the lotion it is appearing on her hands. By the time we get to the Dr. it is gone again. When the Dr. comes in it is very faint on her hands. You almost can’t see it. While we are looking at her hands and arms we see one developing in the bend of her arms and then down around her wrist and then on her hands. It is truly weird. The doctor said that she felt it was still consistent with Fifths disease and that this could continue for a couple of weeks. So, if you were around my child oh… a month ago, I am truly sorry.
