(Posted stuff yesterday in backwards order, so I re-did it. I just don't like my top post to be not a "real" post. I'm strange that way. :) )
I was saddled with a table of seven today that had been standing around the bar in everybody's way for about half an hour. They'd all gotten their drinks at the bar, and paid for them there, naturally, so that cut about thirty bucks of their tab with me. Most of them were fine, friendly enough and unremarkable. But one of the woman was just a pain in the ass from the start. Just generally irritating and indecisive. But what chapped my ass was when I brought her extra plate (because of course instead of choosing her own meal and making a decision, she decided to “just share”).
“That plate is pretty warm,” I warned her as I set it on the table in front of her.
Of course, she promptly reached out and set both hands on the plate just because it was there. “OW!” she screeched, then glared at me. “You didn't tell me it was hot!”
Stupid bitch. Maybe you should have another drink.
