    We All Get Screamed At For Ice Cream

    , | Cedar Rapids, IA, USA | Bosses & Owners, Food & Drink, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I’ve just begun my shift, so I speak to my manager to check on things.)

    Me: “Is there anything I need to know, like anything we’re out of, can’t make, or trying to push?”

    Manager: “No.”

    (The manager walks away, totally emotionless and uninterested. Note that I’m at the drive-thru register, far away from everything else in the restaurant.)

    Customer: “Yes, I’d like two [ice cream product] please.”

    Me: “Your total is [amount]. Please pull forward to the first window.”

    (Suddenly, I hear my manager shout from the front of the store.)

    Manager: “WE DON’T HAVE ICE CREAM!”
