12 Struggles Every Froyo Worker Understands On A 'We're Not The Same As Ice Cream' Level

My summer this year consists of a lot of things, such as taking classes, working from home, and also to earn some extra cash, working at a frozen yogurt shop. It's a cute little side job just so that I don't end up rotting away at home. There's a lot that goes into working at a frozen yogurt shop, which I had no idea until I started working. It takes two hours to open the shop and only one person is working a shift, so it's all on me to have the place running, absolutely no help. Here are just some of the things I go through on a daily basis.

Having to replace entire tubs of toppings because children touched them

Ya'll don't discipline your kids and it shows.

Spending 10 minutes talking to someone and getting 0 tips

I really didn't care about how Timmy's last day of middle school went.

Customers pretending to know how to get their froyo

I'll ask people if they've been here before and they respond with yes, but then confess that they don't know what to do. It's not that deep!

Parents making imaginary discounts up

No there isn't a deal today, oh it's on Facebook? Can I see it? Oh, your phone is in the car? But you were just on it — mhmm that's what I thought MA'AM.

When people ask for sample cups, reuse those cups, and leave

frustration

Um I'm giving you a sample cup so you can try out the flavors you want to BUY. Why would you do us so dirty like that?

When you ask us to make a smoothie without any yogurt in it

confused

We are a frozen YOGURT shop!

Having parents come in, letting their kids make a MESS

Please refer back to #1.

When people don't put the machine's lever all the way back up and wonder why nothing's coming out

We have signs that literally tell you to push the lever ALL the way back up when you are done. You're ruining the experience for the next person.

When it's 3 p.m.

Four words: After. School. Rush. Hour.

 When people don't realize all the cups will add up to the same price

reaction

Whether you decide to weigh the cups all together or separately, it will all add up to the same price, so it doesn't matter!

 When people dip the topping spoons into their yogurt

Now your yogurt is all over the spoon, the rest of the toppings, and the next person isn't going to want that so we have to throw it all out and replace it. It's a topping, it goes on TOP of the yogurt.

 When people ask to just "make some more" yogurt when we run out 

stressed

There's a whole process of thawing, mixing, and freezing ingredients. We aren't magicians.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
