too many work things.
me work in hotel on long island, in the restaraunt part.
today i answered someone's how are you with "good, n you?" he said "if i was any better i'd be you"
whaaat? mmmkay....

some guy was outraged by his bill, so the office girls called the cops to come make him pay. it was hil-ah-rious. they were like getting the handcuffs out and he's like, okay okay okay i'll pay.... took hours though.

there are 2 other americans who work with me, the rest are europeans, puerto ricans, and russians, so you can imagine there are many misunderstandings.
todays telephony word problems-
summer soup turned into salmon soup. the guests were not excited.
we thought the salad guy was saying "a girl outside is juggling" (hmm, nice, okay...) but really "a girl (this girl was like 50 years old) out there wants yogurt" yogurt, juggles... same thing.


sigh. fun.

I used to work at a coffee house in the ghetto part of a suburb right outside Boston. There was a bar next door and almost daily we had a handful of bad ass bikers in to get their java (with a side of "now, bitch") and sober up for another night of boozing.

One day as I was walking in I noticed that there seemed to be an especially large group of bikers outside the bar, and it was fucking 5 am. I shrugged it off and went in to open the store. At around 8 all these dudes in their leather with big beards and crazy long hair started filing in and it got to the point where the line was out the door and around the building. But instead of black coffee, I was overwhelmed with orders for cappucinos with vanilla soy, a bit of cinnamon, 2 equals, and various other incredibly feminine drinks.

Yeah... it was a gay biker rally. We served about 800 gay bikers that day. EIGHT HUNDRED. It's a sad day when I'm the most masculine person in the area.




current mood: exhausted

Welcome to Work is a Jerk, a new community where you can post interesting stories about your job. The only rule is as follows:
NO LAME STORIES. C'mon. If you're gonna say something, it'd better be good. Funny, unnerving, scary, whatever, just nothing like, "I checked out a black guy at work today and he winked at me."


Unless you're a guy.


Anyways, I need help with two things right now: I need help with good keywords, and I'd also like if someone has any Photoshop talent, make some good icons for the community. Either of these would be a great help to me.

Thank you for joining, and have fun!
