Would you like fries with that?
Now I'm not the kind of bloke to bang on about something (unless we're
talking football) but customer service is so important.
I went to McDonalds (asking for trouble, I know) and the bloke who
served me was a freak. First of all he didn't look at me when I was
giving him my order. He was looking at the counter, playing with
some little badges. "Hello, are you listening to me?" I asked.
"Yes" he said indignantly. "Well you're not looking at me!" I said
with a hint of agitation. When my brother was very little, he used to
demand that people looked at thim when he was talking. "You're not
listening with your eyes!" he would pout.
So Weird Boy took my order, and after being given all the signs of
a customer ready to snap, he managed to bugger it up. If anyone out
there can tell me the similarities between a fish burger and a big mac,
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I retreated to the YHA hostel in Holland Park, where I was spending
the night. I stumbled up to the room, and sat down on the edge of my
bed. It creaked very loudly. "Good thing you're girlfriend's not
staying in your bed as well!" laughed an Australian voice from the bunk
next to me. Yeah, I thought, those imaginary girlfriends sure can
make a lot of noise.
And this bloke was yet another Carlton supporter! On Monday I was on
the train and a bloke started staring at me. I thought this a little
strange. I glanced back later and he and his wife were both gawking
at me. Bizarre! They got off the train before me, and he gestured
towards my jacket, "Carlton Football Club ay?" Bloody Australians are
everywhere. "That's the one," I said. I then informed him about the
humiliating loss to last year's wooden spooners. Put a downer on his
So I've met a few Carlton supporters, a Richmond supporter, and one Collingwood supporter.
No Essendon supporters yet. I guess that's because 14-year-old girls
can only travel overseas with their parents. I LOVE YOU MATTY LLOYD!!
