I’ve started back at work for a few hours a week.
The store doesn’t open until 10, and a customer had been waiting for a few minutes so we opened the store early. He was in a bad mood.
“You know what I hate?” No ‘hi, how are you’.
“What?” I say in sarcastic anticipation.
“I hate cold.
“And I hate having to wait for things.
“And I hate the stupid drivers on the roads.
“And I hate high prices
He went on and on.
I interrupted him, “Do you know what I hate? People who complain all the time.”
“Yeah, me too!” He said without a pause.
I love people who don’t get that they’ve been insulted!
