So Not Surprised

I decided to go ahead and write a little something to try and keep my mind off dramatiCAT, so here it goes…
When you work at a place long enough, you tend to not be surprised at what people leave behind. One night at the fast food joint, we had a few teens just taking up space and being obnoxious as they waited for the city bus. We were a few blocks away from a high school, so we would always have students in the dining area or outside loitering because it was just the thing to do I guess. At least, if you were one of the cool kids. Anyway, it was a pretty slow night, one of the boy’s ordered a drink, I guess he figured that would somehow secure them all the time in the world to sit there and continuously refill his one cup as he shared it with all his friends. It was getting pretty close to closing time and I couldn’t tell you how many times they refilled that cup, but I’m sure the cost of what they drank was way more than what we made in sales for the entire night. Besides, I had already seen two busses go by. Finally they left and we were getting ready to lock up for the night so we could do our cleaning/stocking and call it a night. Well, I sent Isaac to clean the bathrooms while I counted out the registers and no sooner than he steps foot into the bathroom, I hear him yell for me. “Oh man, what now?), is all I’m thinking. I head over to the bathrooms and he’s standing in the doorway of the men’s room looking straight up. That can’t be good. I’m thinking spit wads because it’s happened on many occasions. Nope!! Think again. Nah-ah. These little shits hocked loogies up onto the ceiling and they were like dripping down. These were like yellow and green, slimy, mucousy stalagmite looking loogies. (Have you got a visual yet)? It looked like an alien nesting ground, it was disgusting, but I wasn’t surprised. I told Isaac to just use the mop to clean it up and that he might want to wear safety goggles so he won’t get a loogie in his eye. Haha. Just another day at the diner.



  1. I did that in my days, the great refill ! You don´t have that here in Spain, plus if it´s cold outside and you don´t have a place to go right away is a great way to recluse yourself from the cold. Except I wasn´t a cool kid, I just read. But I remember that, refill !! So did piss you people off? It pissed me off all the kids that came to where I worked in Burger King late at night after they had been partying, those where really the pain in the behind.
    Still, refill !

  2. I know exactly what you mean. It got frustrating and itritating to say the least but because it was free refills and he was a paying customer, we couldn’t say anything. That didn’t last very long though, the owner decided to take out that soda machine and only kept the one behind the counter and took away the free refills. Hey, I’m pretty sure you were a cool kid. I read all the time and I still do. We are all cool in our own individual way. You know, I didn’t have to deal with any drunks or partiers because we didn’t stay open that late. Thank goodness, but I can imagine what pains in the butt they were.
