it's only january 2 and i am already full of hate

1. man on the subway platform at atlantic/pacific: as the doors were about to open, this guy came from nowhere, to not just cut off the people who were waiting at the sides to enter, but also to cut me off before i could exit! asshole!!!

2. dumb-dumb barista: i've been carrying around this giftcard to starbucks for over a year now and always forget to use it. this morning, i decided to cash it on for a coffee and one of these new controversial breakfast sandwiches. (check the gastronome for a review shortly). i order just that from the dumb-dumb behind the counter. i get my coffee and then i'm waiting. and waiting. after 5 or 6 minutes, i still don't have my sandwich, so i go back up to her and ask how much longer it's going to be for my sandwich. she shrugs and points to the women next to her. "no, i orderd it from you," i say. "oh, i only make drinks," she tells me. thanks for letting me know when i ordered, asshole.

3. not sure who gets blamed for this, but nice to return to work and find out we have no paper in the office. good one.

I am so tired of bad service. If one more waiter/waitress effs up my order or forgets to pay attention in general I'm just going to implode. On Sunday I got take-out from Tavern on Dean and it was enough to give me night terrors. The bartender didn't write down what I wanted and then had to ask me for my entire order again while punching it into the little computer/register thingy, but in piecemeal, as if she sort of knew what I wanted, but really she didn't at all. Then, after waiting a grueling THIRTY-THREE minutes, she brought out my order and reported to me that they did not have baked potatoes and they only had fries and asked if I wanted them instead. Well, um, yeah. Especially since I have no alternative! WTF? And why didn't she tell me that like twenty-four minutes ago? Then I had to wait another seven minutes for my freaking french fries! FORTY minutes for take-away. UNACCEPTABLE.

Who are you people? You are going to give yourselves a heart attack complaining about all this dumb stuff.

Just relax, your food will be ready for you when your server fucking wants to give it to you, you damn elitist snobs.

When I was a waitress, I was the best waitress in the Western Hemisphere. And I once met Alan Lomax and he didn't bitch that I didn't refill his cup of coffee. That's class.
