We have a new girl who transferred in from a store in Texas, and I'm still trying to figure out if I like her or not. I don't know where she's from, but Dallas will work at a nickname. Every time I start thinking she's nice and friendly, and that I'll end up liking her, she goes and says something weird.
For instance, she asks everybody over twenty why they don't have kids, whether they're married or dating or single. Now, asking if somebody has kids, totally normal. But to follow it up with "why not?" is a little weird, right? She didn't like my answer. But I warned her someone had once told me it was the most cynical thing they'd ever heard.
Later in the night yesterday, I had yet another table come in and order two coffees. Nothing else. I was annoyed by this for several reasons, one of which was these people are regulars and they're shitty tippers no matter what they order, and they're campers. So I'm in back having a mini-rant as I pour their coffee--"why the fuck do people come to a restaurant if they're not hungry? why don't they go to a coffee shop or a bar?" etc.
Dallas looks at me and says, "You're not a very happy person, are you."
I told her I'm a very happy person, I just get annoyed with stupid people.
"Happy people don't get annoyed by stupid things," she sniffed.
"No, highly medicated people don't get annoyed by stupid things."
At that point Idiot Expo jumped in, waving his medical marijuana waiver, and proclaimed that he's highly medicated. Well no fucking wonder.
The rest of my coworkers seem to be on the fence about her too. I guess time will tell.
