Stupid normies are always rushing everything. Is it some law that I have to know what I want as soon as I step into a restaurant? Anybody experience this?
Former register slave here.
If a customer's in the building management expects you to be up at the register 100%. If they take a fucking hour getting to you, you stand there and wait a fucking hour for them. That's how the job works, even if you aren't actively helping someone you're providing utility just by being available. On the reverse there are also customers that aren't comfortable approaching the cashier first and they'll get upset if they feel like you're ignoring them.
BTW menu starers always made my heart drop because they always seemed to be problem customers. They have questions and they want you to make a thing for them and they're not sure if they have enough money and they like to get angry and complain if they aren't COMPLETELY SATISFIED with their service and they don't care about the line growing behind them while they're torturing you with their bullshit. Obviously not everyone's so bad but it's certainly more irritating then the guy who just came in to get a fountain drink and a snack or something.
what the fuck. are you trolling? you stand there staring at the menu for a minute or two if you really dont know, then walk up and order it
god damn you fuckers make me feel normal about my own autistic bullshit
