So I was sitting here thinking of all my past jobs and all their low points. Here are the top three:
1.) Working Fast Food- One day while cleaning off tables I was approached by a gentleman who proceeds to ream me for "using chemicals around [his] wife when she has severe chemical allergies." I was at a complete loss for words and actually apologized... excessively. How was I supposed to know that his wife could die (which he made very clear) from cleaner? Of course later I thought of all the great replies... isn't that always the case? (Oh, and he finished his meal INSIDE while his wife finished hers outside... what a great catch.)
2.) Jewelry Sales- Telling a guy that I wasn't sure if a watch we sold was "quartz." He then informed me that quartz meant battery-powered. Who knew? I felt so stupid; even though my knowledge of diamonds, pearls, precious stones, gold, kinetic watches, adjusting watch bands, etc. is actually quite extensive.
3.) McDonalds- A cute boy came through drive-thru and after handing him his food, he asked what time it was. I looked at my analog watch (see I told you I know my jewelry!) and proceeded to tell him the time. He gave me an odd look and drove away. I then realized I mixed up the hour and minute hands... yeah.
