“I would like two medium Sprites”, I said to the manager of the Quiznos inside the San Diego airport. The manager received a call on her cell phone while taking our order. She had a personal conversation while attempting to operate the soda fountain. Apparently it is difficult to fill two cups with ice and soda with one hand. She took several minutes to fill the drinks but didn’t miss a beat on the phone. I looked over at another worker who seemed embarrassed by her boss, she gestured with her shoulders.
I took out my trusty camera phone, isn’t technology great? Finally we had our drinks in hand. The manager had the audacity to joke about her phone call with me and how difficult it was to fill the drinks. I was not amused.
