The other day my husband and our youngest one where out, sitting in a well known fast food restaurant, waiting for our order.
And I did something awful! I looked at the staff behind the counter and wondered if they didn’t learn something proper that they have to work in such a place.
But seconds later I realized what I did.
I did the same many do to me when I am at work, which is also a big fast food chain:
People come in and they look you up and down, often have a smirk on their face and are impatient when you don’t type in their order fast enough.
Little do they know, that sometimes people have no choice but to work in shops well known to employ without work specific knowledge, degrees, diplomas and I don’t know what else, because it is the closest to where they live and they can’t afford to work further away, like me.
Usually I don’t mind they’re looks but when it does get to me, I think:
Just out of their nappies, still wet behind their ears and giving me “the look”. I have so much work experience, it would last for two lives!!!
So though the staff might not have realized my look, I do apologize. It was thoughtless.
