Bike Lanes
See those lanes on the side of the road, separated by solid lines? Those are called bike lanes. They are often used as turn lanes, sometimes parking spots, but you are not supposed to be in them. What happens when drivers assume that they can go into the bike lanes? The bikers deem it unsafe, ride in the roads instead, and hold up traffic. 

Right of Way
When you are making a turn, make sure that there is nobody coming first. If you see someone coming, don't go. It is VERY important to make sure that if someone is coming that the have enough space. If that person is coming, then don't go. Wait for them to pass. If you keep on going, you are going to crash into them. And if someone swerves out of hte way to avoid getting hit by you who evidently got your drivers license as a prize out of a cereal box, don't blow your horn at THEM. THEY should be blowing it at YOU because they just prevented a car accident. This action just saved both of you, mostly YOU, as you would have been found responsible for not respecting the Right of Way. 

pedestrians
See that little walk light? That means they get to go. Yes, you can make certain turns when the light is up - but you must make sure that they are not in the way, first. And if you nearly hit a biker, they have every right to bang on your car. Don't blow your horn at them. If you stop dead, make sure that pedestrian isn't a jaywalker - if they are, then they should be held responsible because YOU just kept them from getting run-over. 

GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR APPS!
I can understand texting at lights - but watch the light. PUT it away so you can pay attention! 

Turn Lanes
Stay in your turn lane. If you cut someone off mid-turn, the ywill stop dead. And do not flip them off because they used their horn at you - they have every right to when you swap lanes mid-turn. 

Truckers, the rules of the road apply to you, too.
You have to pick a lane. You have to use your turn signals. You have to turn from a turn lane. You have to abide by the speed limit. You have to stop at lights. You have to go at lights. You have to stop at stop signs. Having a big-ass truck does NOT mean you get to ignore them. 

Parking
See those two lines? Your car must fit inside them. You must be parallel to the lines. Not perpendicular. A bigass truck is NOT a compact car. A hummer is NOT a compact car. A minivan is NOT a compact car. Get out of the parking spots made for sedans and miniature cars. 

Trash
If you have trash, you put it in the trash can. Not out the window, not on the road, not in somebody else's window, THE TRASH CAN. 

Lights
Green means go. Red means stop. Red does not mean "randomly go through and cause a car accident". 
You know that stereotype about how construction workers are full of men who're assholes and stupid as hell on top of that? well, the construction workers that work next to this store definitely seem to reinforce that stereotype a LOT.


We get a couple dozen of them every day - usually around the same time. Let's go over what happens at least once or twice a day with them:

-Customer manages to forget what they JUST ORDERED within the time it takes to make the damn sandwich and when the person at the register (who didn't see it being made) asks. How do you get through life if you have memory problems that bad? 

-Customer responds to "Do you want chips and a drink with that?" with "I don't know". I love how the person literally says "...you don't know?" 

-Customer stares at the female employees. 

-Customer says they want chips and a drink... then AFTER PAYING, say "I didn't want that". Why in the hell did you say you wanted chips and a drink then you idiot? 

-Customer comes up with some bizarre name for something they want. When we say we don't know what it is, they just repeat it louder and louder. Try using a damn synonym!

-Customer puts the damn cup UPSIDE DOWN in the soda fountain and complains that it makes a mess. 
:iconheaddeskplz:

-Customer walks past two signs saying "We don't take bills above a $20" and tries to pay with a $100. And when we tell them we can't, they keep trying and think maybe this time it'll work. 

-Customers just leave their trash all over the table. 

-Customer spills. Leaves the mess for us to clean up. 

-Customer uses the men's room. Ftr, if you are in your 40s, you should know that if you have to use the bathroom, you do it in the toilet. Not on the floor, not in the sink, not in the trashcan, not on the mirror, THE TOILET. 

-Customers place their nice muddy shoes on the TABLE.

I truly think that 2007-2009 might have been my "Golden age" on deviantART, especially 2008. I mean, that's when I met... most people. That's when most people I still talk to today are here. I've used dAmn so much, even in the years following that. I think that was more when I started looking at things, seeing interesting things... and really fostering my interest in other things. 

Apparently, I think horns are a cool thing to have.

That is to make sure your brain to mouth filter properly functions.

Customer: "What do I want?" 
What I wanted to say: "When I was six years old, I was hit on the head and as a result, suffered brain damage that caused me to grow up without my psychic abilities. Please tell me what you want with your mouth"
What I actually said: "Please look over our menu."

Customer: "You're out of Cherry Coke"
What I wanted to say: "Are you sure you should be pursuing a university degree? university requires a lot of reading. Judging by the fact that you have just placed your cup underneath a sign that quite clearly reads, 'Out of Order' that you cannot read."
What I actually said: "The Cherry Coke is out of order."

Customer: "You need to have a deal going - these $10 lunches are killing me."
What I wanted to say: "You could start by looking at the menu and selecting an alternative that is cheaper, such as not ordering one of our most expensive subs on the menu. From then on, you can order a six inch rather than a footlong sub. Skip over the things that give you an additional charge like extra meat, bacon, and cheese, and you could then go into the SHRINE of the SILVER MONKEY! Get past the veggies without ordering avocado and then try deciding not to order additional cookies for your lunch. Go to the register, and then not upsize your drink to a large which adds on an additional charge, or even not order sides at all. Pick up the sandwich and then walk out and take your ridiculous lack of human logic elsewhere."
What I actually said: "I don't control the deals."

Customer: "I would like to use this coupon" *holds up a Silver Mine Coupon*
What I wanted to say:
:iconspartaplz: THIS. IS. SUBWAY!!!! 
What I actually said: "We don't accept those coupons here - those are for Silver Mine." 

Customer: "Your soda fountain is broken"
What I wanted to say: "You have to put your cup UNDER the spigot to receive soda. No wonder people find it hard to believe in human evolution, since the laws of natural selection state you should have offed yourself before you reached reproductive age."
What I actually said: "You have to put your cup under the spigot." 

Customer: "Uh, I forgot"
What I wanted to say: "Oh wow! you cannot remember what you JUST ORDERED." 
What I actually said: "What did this person order? They forgot." 

Customer: "Chicken."
What I wanted to say: "Oh my freaking god we have several kinds of chicken sandwiches you idiot." 
What I actually said: "Which kind?"

Customer: *takes out a $100 bill to pay for a $0.59 order*
What I wanted to say: "As a construction worker who is apparently paid in $50s and $100s as opposed to a check, would assume that you would know more than anyone else that stores do not accept bills that are above a $20, and that you should probably walk to the bank to break that $100 down into something that you can use. Why do they pay you all in $50s and $100 bills anyway? And why oh WHY do you pay for an order LESS THAN A DOLLAR with a HUNDRED?!?" 
What I actually said: "We cannot take that - we don't accept bills over $20." 

Customer: "I want white cheese please."
What I wanted to say: "oh my freaking god all of the cheeses are white you idiot."
What I actually said: "Which kind?"

Customer: "Why is my sub so expensive?"
What I wanted to say: "Maybe it's because you ordered a footlong? Then you asked for Double Meat, which adds $3 to the charge? Then you asked for bacon? Then you spaced out when we warned you that would be an additional charge? You would know this if you actually read the bloody menu rather than order what you see on the commercials."
What I actually said: "You ordered double meat and bacon which are all additional charges." 
Do you mind if we cut our payments to you by 50%? I mean... seeing as you only take our recycling half the time, then we should only pay you for the weeks you actually DO your jobs. 

Alternatively, maybe we'll keep paying you the full amount... except on one condition. You give your employees a better vision plan. Judging by the fact that they somehow can't see an overflowing recycling bin with the word "Recycling" written in bright orange tape placed right where you instructed us to place it on collection days when we signed up for your services.... 

By the way, if you changed your schedule recycling collection, a little notice would be very much appreciated. It's not like you collect on a consistent pattern that we can figure out (Eg every other week). 

Oh, is it because we're not using the recycling bin you gave us? Well then tell us how we can get a new one then - none of your customers on this street have those recycling bins because when they're empty, they're light and they got blown away. Or maybe because that recycling bin is really really tiny anyways so I'm pretty sure it got blown into another state. 

Clearly because this is a private business it should be better than the government "monopoly" even though they actually pick up the recycling every week and let people know when they won't be there.

"I remember when that kook said to use raisins or baking soda and lemon juice to whiten your teeth. "

WTF? That sounds gross. My teeth are fine anyway, if not I'd just use whitening tooth paste like normal people XD

I don't want gross crap like baking soda in my mouth and raisins..eh.

You're better off using the "baking soda toothpaste" since that contains sodium fluoride and it's normally the safe method.
