People Talk!

Have you been hearing people talk lately?!

That is one thing you learn, whether you want to or not, I guess!!! No matter what your career choice…be it a waitress or a billing clerk, your training is not considered replete without doses of banter. It might have all started out with the best of intentions. Never hurt anybody to be friendly to people. So, you get to a restaurant, and……….
She (waitress): Good evening! So, how are you doing today?
ME: (clears throat)
She: Good ….I am glad to hear that. The weather these days is getting a bit hot, isn’t it? (I am still trying to get a word in edgeways to say that I did not really answer that I was fine, but it is drowned in the volley of things that come naturally )
She: SO, I hope you are ready for a lovely meal.
Me: Yes, thank you!(A glow of satisfaction on my face that I finally said something!)
She: Well, here is your menu. I do hope you enjoy your meal. What would you like to drink?
Me: Well………………, yes thanks
She: blah, blah, blah, blah
She: blah, blah, blah, blah
She: blah, blah, blah, blah
Me: blah
She: blah, blah, blah, blah
She: blah, blah, blah, blah
She: blah, blah, blah, blah
Me: blah
She: Well, here is your check. And now, you have a good night ok? And enjoy yourself
Me: (meekly accepting the order to have a good night) well….thanks. Good night to you too!
Ahh well…..who am I to complain. I am known for my tongue too. So, enjoy talking everybody!
