Another Toll Booth Troll Story for you.
About two weeks ago, Rachel #2 gave me a frozen 'garlic chicken pizza' to take to work with me.
At lunch time I took it out of the cardboard and it smelled SOOO strong of garlic that I could actually smell it through the celephane wrap AND from about a foot away....so I decide NOT to eat this at lunch, because it would have killed my future clients...I starve myself ALL day and decide to heat up this pizza and finally eat it while driving back home to SF.
I devour the pizza in my car and approach the toll booth on the Bay Bridge.
I roll my window down, and stick my $5 bill out to the women who is taking money. I say, "Can I have a receipt please". She winces as if she is in extraordinary pain and YELLS!!! "WHHHHHEEEEWWWW!".
I don't say a word, I am not sure if she is have a convulsion or a coming to Jesus, or epilepsy or something.
I stare at her....she reaches with her three inch fingernails for my money. She is careful to ONLY let the tips of her fingernails touch the corner of my bill, and she rips it as fast as she can out of my hand while YELLING AGAIN, " WWWWHHHHHHHHHHEEEEWWWWWWW" !!!!!!!!
I am catching on now that she has a problem with the garlic smell coming from my car.
I still sit there speechless and wait for my reciept.....
She proceeds to yell as loud as she can...
"stank" "Stank" "STANK" " SSSSTTTAAAANNNKKK" !!!!!!!!!!! as she throws my dollar bill back at me.
COME ON LADY !!!! Yes I get that I smell like garlic...but it's not like I smelled like SHIT or B.O. or a myriad of other offensive odors....I mean....
how Fing RUDE are you???? Did I pull up and yell "EWWWW" "FRIED CHICKEN!!" " EWWW" "EWWW"...no, I didn't ..you wanna know why?????....It's called curtousy you Gery curl wearing, Lee Press On Nail having, Loud Mouth, Evening at the Apolo, Dramatic, Screaming to Jesus......Byoch !!!!!!!!!!!
Oh I said it...and you know why?? I said it because no matter how bad someone smells...its called common courtesy. I have NO IDEA what Toll Booth Trolls have to do in order to get their jobs, but CUSTOMER service is NOT involved in the training process. I have done my share of retail, sales AND customer service and I would have been FIRED on the spot if I treated people the way these TOLL BOOTH TROLLS treat me. Am I the only one?
