Ignorance is bliss. Thats my story and I am stickin' to it.
Anyway, I have only worked three shifts so far the longest of which was 3.5 hours. Tonight I worked my forth shift and instead of make-up (building and baking pizzas) I was trained to be the pizza runner. This is the person who brings the food to the table after going through an elaborate ritual of figuring out which pizza it is, whether it was paid for and where it is really supposed to go.
On a completely different note... Billy Crystal was on Jay Leno tonight. I am getting old. I can tell because every time I see a celebrity I grew up watching I think, "boy they are getting old."
Billy Crystal is one of my favorite actors who is, quite frankly, beginning to look a little pasty. That means I'm not too far behind. I do admire him though for letting it happen and NOT pulling a Kenny Rodgers permanent surprise but in denial lift.
If I close my eyes I can picture in my minds eye that Jay is actually interviewing Mike Wisowsky and all is well.
AnYwAy, I also know I am getting older because the antics of teens, specifically the rude ones, gets on my nerves. I brought a medium twist (six garlic bread twists) to a table of three teens, two girls and a boy. It was accompanied by two little tubs of ranch dressing...standard. The boy asked me for an extra ranch. I knew there was a .25 cent charge for extra tubs but was unsure of how to collect it at that point.
I checked with another employee and went back to the table and said, " I'm sorry, it is my first night serving and I was told that extra ranch is .25 cents would you still like one?"
After looking at me like I had hissing cockroaches climbing out my nose he answers, dripping with sarcastic teenage angst, "NO, reeeaaally, I'll be just fiiiiine, but thanks A LOT for bringing extra plates, yep, thanks."
Completely ignoring his tone I respond cheerfully, "You're welcome, enjoy your meal and have a nice evening." Because that is what I am paid minimum wage to do... ignore the fact that someone in this teens life has neglected to tell him that he is not owed a thing just by being born and that not everything in life is free even if you whine for it. All the while thinking... between the three of you you couldn't scrounge up a lousy .25 cents!?! Really!?! You are copping attitude over a quarter cup of ranch!?!
OOOooo... Prince is on Leno too... I... oh my word, seriously? ... nah... I won't go there.
