"7. When a coworker calls out at the last minute and leaves you stranded."

I needed a job badly because I needed to make money. I'm a college student, I need way more money than I could ever make. People told me to go into retail/ food service because it was the easiest thing to get into. Mind you, I'm an INTJ, so I already really dislike people; put myself into food service? I hate them even more now. Here's a compilation of GIFs that describe my experience working in food service.

1. When a customer yells at you [about anything]

2. When you're obviously busy making the customer's food and they come up and ask for a cup of water while it's obvious your coworkers aren't doing anything

3. The customer has to walk past the sides to get to the register, yet they act offended when you don't hand it to them

4. Customers who don't answer, "Hi! How are you?"

5. Customers that come in two minutes before you close

6. Being understaffed

7. When a coworker calls out last minute and leaves you stranded

8. Juggling full-time school and work at the same time

9. Older, male customers that flirt with you

10. Baby boomers seem so angry about everything

11. When a customer says, "Don't worry, take your time"

12. When a customer (non-creepily) compliments you

13. When a customer genuinely wants to know how your day is going

14. When customers leave their trash all over the tables and floors

15. When a customer brings in outside food for their small child and lets said small child throw it all over the floor and not clean up their mess

16. When a customer says, "Give me ______"

17. Heaven forbid you look out of the window for two seconds at the sixth hour of your shift

Mark being a customer.

18. When the shop is crazy busy with a line out of the door and a customer who ordered two minutes ago pushes themselves up to the front and goes, "Uh, yeah, I ordered [insert food here] two minutes ago and still haven't gotten it"

19. When there is a clear, visible divide between the food and drink stations, you hand a customer their food and they look disappointed and say, "Uh, I ordered smoothies, too"

20. "Yeah, I never got my side," said the upset customer, and then I point to the side station that they had to walk by to get to the register

21. An actual thing that actually happened to me:
Me: "Regular or Decaf?"
Customer: *laughs horrendously loudly* "That's a stupid question!"

22. "This was on the menu before!" Friend, you had to pass the massive sign that read "New Menu!" before you walked in here

23. "They made it for me at the [insert other city/state here] location!" Okay, well, I'm not working at that location

24. Being rushed by customers who are far too impatient

25. When customers spit out large orders rather quickly and you just have to hope to God you caught everything

26. When a customer goes, "Actually, can I switch it for that one?" After I've already put the drink in the blender

27. When a customer pays their $5 charge with a $100 bill

28. Making absolutely nothing and still have to deal with a lot of the terrible people in the world

And bonus gif because it's one of my favorites:

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
