Ok, so I just came home from working a night shift at a fast food restaurant and seriously, FUCK. PEOPLE! Specifically, drunk and rude people.
It's christmas day and in Sweden, we celebrate christmas on christmas eve, meaning that the 25th is instead party day. And since it fell on a friday too, well... fuck me and my collegues, because after the club closes, everyone came to us since we were the only place open and people had the munchies.
We were also one man short and so six people had to man several stations, while dealing with 30-40+ customers.
I alone had like 20+ people by the cashier. I had to take all orders, call for them to the kitchen and of course deliver them. Add the drive through to that, and only two people in the kitchen, yeah things were slow.
So what happens?
Well, the people I was serving, started to get loud, shout at me, banged with the trays on my desk, complained and even insulted me and my crew, by calling us lazy and slow.
Seriously, FUCK ALL THOSE PEOPLE! Do you SEE how many customers there are here?! Do you see that there are only two people in the kitchen? Do you not see that the Drive through screen IS FULL?! We have shit to do!
I kept telling them, "it's gonna take a while, and I dont know how long." but they still whined and banged their trays. Some even loudly complained that they hadnt even ordered yet. Come on! Let me deliver some stuff first! I need to get rid of stuff!!
Only one guy, besides a friend of mine and her company, WAS NICE TO ME!
Seriously, throughout all this, I was shaking like a leaf, my heart was in my throat, I had a headache and just wanted to scream at people to leave. I felt like a distressed animal in a glass box with crazy children screaming and banging at the glass. I was so scared!!
Yes, I was literally scared. And incredibly angry.
Seriously, I see so much shit being said about people wo work in fast food restaurants, but the reason why the staff "sucks" and are "rude", yeah, that's because of the customers most of the time. Especially in situations like that one. Goddamn.
Sorry, I just needed to vent. Tonight was a nightmare for me...
