Short Sunday Anecdote/Apology/Applause time:
SO while I was gone for a lil bit on Friday during lunch, it seems we ran out of ice and our ice machine wasn’t replenishing in time. So instead of begging for ice from our various neighbors (we might have been in the middle of the lunch rush), my HILARIOUS staff opted to: FAKE like we had ice and ACT like we had some.
APOLOGY: I’m so sorry for those of you that found out afterwards, but read on.. it gets better. Btw, the fountain drinks actually stay cold w/o the ice for a while too (just in case you were wondering)
This (gets even better) even involved going through the act of pretending like they were getting ice for each drink, but obstructing the view of the ice/cup each so people couldn’t see. Pretty ballsy, right?
Well, seems like 30 minutes after confidently (I’m not sure if they were actually confidently doing it or were scared SHITLESS every time, I didn’t ask because this part made me laugh so hard) serving people ice-less drinks, one lady (pretty much your hero in this story) decided to shake her drink for some ice and was like:
"Uh-UUUUUH.. you ain’t serving me my coke without any ice!"
Needless to say my staff was FLOORED that someone finally discovered their dastardly plot to rob people of ice cold.. ICE with their soft drinks. LOL One of the guys had to uncomfortably tell her that the ice machine was broken (without mentioning to her that they had already been doing it for 30 minutes of course haha)
Now, if you can picture all this above and still don’t think this is funny (what’s wrong with you?), I can demonstrate for you how I envisioned it because it seems pretty DAMN hilarious to me. ^_^
(btw, I’m happy to admit I was told this story while sharing some “recreational herbs” with my staff the other night too… that could have helped make this story funnier too… except I’m completely sober right now and still think it’s funny LOL)
APPLAUSE: Here’s a big Asian in Lederhosen THUMBS UP for you staff. That took some balls, and made me laugh so hard I could hardly breathe. Bravo chaps… BRAVO (and get some damn ice next door next time foo’s! LOL)
