what’s the magic word?

2014-3-31

There are a few coffee shops and restaurants in chilliwack where the servers simply will not put up with any kind of one’s crap.  The servers are so used to getting sassed that sass is their default setting; animosity older then the earth itself has built the counter that separates these people and their patrons.  It always catches me by surprise when my request is met with (at best) passive aggressive snark and (at most entertaining) outright hostility, and I never know what to say in reply… Although, seeing as they have all the power in the transaction (and they do, because their product is that good) I guess I just gotta say what they want to hear, which is not a pleasant social interaction, but the weeping and gnashing of teeth.
