bagel bitch

Every day i go into a certain purveyor of coffee and baked goods (rhymes with 'Dimmies', which adequately describes the staff) and ask for a bagel with cream cheese on both sides of the bagel. for years, this request has been met with blatant eye-rolling

Every day i go into a certain purveyor of coffee and baked goods (rhymes with 'Dimmies', which adequately describes the staff) and ask for a bagel with cream cheese on both sides of the bagel. for years, this request has been met with blatant eye-rolling, 'oh lord..' glances between between staff members, and downright rudeness, including one girl who snapped at me, "Uh, YEAH, we do that anyway" then, Lo and behold, i get to the office and my bagel has one gigantic clump of cream cheese on ONE side.

I tip a dollar or close to it every time, i say it politely and with an apologetic smile, and i offer to pay extra if it appears there is hestitation. so i don't understand why when you go to get a bagel, you either get a huge glob on one side, or the most meager, paper-thin ration on both sides.

I know you guys are brainwashed by corporate DVD-ROMS, but once in a while, try to think of logic: When you're making a bagel at home, do you put butter or cream cheese on just one side? Christ, its not like I'm asking you for a kidney or your first and second born children. All im asking for is a normal-people bagel. it's like asking for ketchup for fries, i dont mind having to ask, but don't be such a dickhead about it when i do.

i love cream cheese
