I work at Chick-fil-A, and today a woman drove up to the window and added a strawberry milkshake to her order. The girl at the window asked the woman to pull around to the front, because the shake was going to take a minute or two. The woman flatly refused, stating that ‘If I have to wait, the rest of the line can wait too.’
First of all, terrible logic. She was the one that ordered late, she was the one that wanted a shake. Essentially, she brought the wait upon herself. There was no reason for anyone else to wait because of her decisions. Second, I can’t imagine having the mindset that everyone should suffer from my mistakes. Everyone has their own problems—the rest of the world need not hurt from yours.
