I worked in Food Service in the past...
It was an excellent experience!
I learned a lot from it.
One thing that annoyed me about working with people was them "ordering" me to do stuff.
Look dont get me wrong... I didnt mind someone coming in and being strait to the point.
It never bothered me that someone didnt say thanks to me...
But the people who came in and looked at me like I was their servant and commanded me to bake them a pizza... I didnt much care for that... none the
less I did it with a smile... Cos I was getting paid for...
...Ok so the other day I walk into McD's and headed for the counter and in a stern voice
"Give ME a Cup of Coffee!" I ordered this teenage kid
I realized what I did...
Typically it goes like this...
"Hey how you doing?, Can I get...."
Not this time... I said "GIVE ME!!!!!!" and was looking at him like I could kill him.
So I stopped and laughed, and said
"I'm Sorry, Can I get a cup of Coffee"
The kid just looked at me with a stupid glance.
Didnt matter... I just knew that was something I didnt like hearing... when I was behind the counter... So I made amends. Guess i was justhaving a
caffeine fit! lol But i dont know what came over me.
So yeah buni11687 I like using polite manners and thank you, when I order food, or any sort of cashier transaction.
It meant a LOT to me when people were polite, when I worked that sort of Job.
so STAR and FLAG for being polite !!!
