To you I must seem rude
But I am just quite tired
You see everyone was late today
Except for the guy that was fired
You scream into my ears "Hold on!"
Then that yell you're ready now
I bite my lip, make your meal
And resist throwing it at you somehow
You have a specific, bothersome request
And I tell you it will be late
With a smile and a sigh I bring it to you
"Can I have it free, since I had to wait?"
Speak incoherently into the speaker
Act frustrated, but have no regrets
So if I slam my face in the window
Please don't assume that I have tourette's
Extra sauces, extra cheese, what else
I tell you what the total will be
"Wait a minute, girl, cancel all that.
I thought the extras were free."
I get to hear all your complaints
On my tired ears they are laid
Please tell me why you curse at a manager
For a meal her employee made?
Senior citizen, I'm dying here
I've explained this now thrice
You can't get your coveted discount
Unless you pay full price
Madam, with the enormously large meal
That's made for more than two
You're ordering a diet coke
What good will it ever do?
Young driver order a large water
With a meal of minimal price
If I were to charge you a cent
You'd ask instead for a cup of ice.
Idle cook complain again
How you don't get the pay you deserve
Please save your gripes and cook some food
As we have guests to serve
I call you guests as a courtesy
(Something you seem to think I lack)
But if invited into my home dear guest
I wouldn't have you back.
"Come night, come darkness, for you cannot come too soon or stay too long in such a place as this." Charles Dickens
