Something I need to talk about here. Just a little story.
There is this waitress at Mike's whose life is like a Jerry Springer episode. She's recently separated (I think) from her third husband, who has turned out to be a drug dealer, a thief, AND a bigamist. Of course, she herself has been known to dabble in illegal narcotics herself, and her Camaro has been cited by both the Banner Elk and Newland police departments for its shabby condition and broken windshield. Imagine, a car in worse shape than mine. *shudder*
Anyway, we were working together (along with 4 others) Tuesday night, and closing the store down for the night. We had everything done but the vacuuming, when all of a sudden this couple waked in the door, 10 minutes to close. They brought cups in with them, and let me tell you, they weren't sippin' Kool-Aid.
Anyway, Waitress X went to serve them, and the rest of us tried to look like we weren't staring right at them, waiting for them to haul their drunk tuckuses out of there. They stayed 'til 9:30, sipping out of their "go cups", and eating the flounder that W-X brought to them; she spent some time talking to them too. They finally finished eating and left, only to each come back in after several minutes and use our bathrooms (which HAD been meticulously cleaned an hour before.) Finally, they left the parking lot at 9:40, but not before the drunk woman nearly drove their Jeep off the embankment by the restaurant.
I found out last night that the reason W-X was talking so much to the couple was that she and the drunk woman had spent time in jail together. *shakes head* I don't really know the point of this story, other than to say "customers SUCK!"
PS, thanks to Cali for putting in the comments box on my blog. Good webmistress! :D
