Sometimes your customers say the darnedest things.

10 Things That Ice Cream Scoopers Are Tired Of Hearing

Being an ice cream scooper definitely has perks from the endless amounts of ice cream to take home, or the fact that you're the sole reason why someone is smiling. The job can be fun, but when you're dealing with so many people, it sometimes can be very overwhelming and frustrating when your customers aren't as cooperative as you'd like them to be. In a perfect world, a customer would pleasantly order their ice cream in the correct size, cup and toppings with no questions or error. But this isn't a perfect world and customers very rarely please you. Here are just some examples of things customers say that may make my eyes roll on the inside.

1. "I actually wanted that on a cone."

Hence the reason why I asked you if you wanted a cup or a cone in the first place.

2. "Can I actually have this to go?"

Can I actually go home?

3. "Gummy bears, Oreos, m&m's on top please!"

How about you take a second to check if we actually have candy on the menu, I don't want to take five minutes explaining every topping we do or do not have.

4. "What are your sizes?"

Even if I tell you we don't have a medium size, you're still probably gonna order one.

5. "How much is *insert menu item*?"

Do you order something from a restaurant without looking at the price on the menu first?

6. "What's the best flavor?"

I'm just trying to earn money to pay for school I don't need this kind of pressure in my life.

7. "What is in the Oreo ice cream?"


8. "Can I taste seven flavors that I'm not even going to end up ordering?"

Of course you can, but please.

9. "Can you make an exception for me?"

I don't care how little you tip me after, you cannot have two flavors in one scoop it just doesn't make sense!

10. "I'd like that quart wrapped up please."

No one ever gets their quarts not wrapped, please let me wrap it up in peace after I set it on the counter.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
