All In A Day's Work

Me: Hi! Welcome to Cracker Barrel. Can I start you off with some sweet tea?

Woman: I'd like coffee. Starbucks, please.

Me: *laughs for a second before realizing woman is serious* Um. We don't have Starbuck's coffee.

Woman: But, it's my favorite!

Woman: But I don't want Royal Cup. I want Starbucks.

Me: I realize that. But you're in CRACKER BARREL.

  4. Yeah...I work in customer service...and it's FUN. *rolls eyes* In my case I take claims at an insurance company and boy...the stories I could tell. People are...interesting. :)

  5. I go to Cracker Barrel AT LEAST once every time I go back home to visit. Lordy I miss TN!
