Heather's Sarcastic Saturday

Them and You

Would you like fries with that? Did I order fries with that?

For an additional ten dollars, we can add on a super-duper gadgety thingie that you’ll never have any use for. I’m sorry, do I have fool stamped on my forehead?

Can I interest you in upgrading to our newest model? Okay. Did we not just have a long drawn out conversation where we decided this was the best model for me? Not two seconds ago, it was perfect for me and now you want me to UPGRADE? May I give you my first born, too??

You and Them

Can I have extra whip on that? Sigh, sucks air through teeth and rolls eyes.

Can I have the gravy on the side? “Um.” Twirls hair around finger and pops gum. “That’s not how we have it on the menu, so I’m not sure.”

Could you make those separate checks please? “Separate? But you’re all sitting at the same table, you aren’t separate.”

They offer what you don’t want and won’t give you what you do want. No fries, fool is not stamped on my forehead, no upgrade needed. Give me extra whip before I smack you, put the gravy on the side and separate the checks!

It takes all kinds. Not sure why, but it does. :D

I'd never offer my first born, he's so sweet, they'd keep him!!!

You got that right, Pammer.

And as for "you vs. them" whatever happened to the "customer is always right" and "no hassle, no haggle"?

I had a customer service rep haggle me the other night when I called to close a credit card account with a low limit and higher interest rate than a new card I have with interest rate HALF of what this other one is and a higher limit. The woman just wouldn't take 'no' for an answer until she had finally run through everthing in her "goodie basket" and I still wouldn't reconsider.

Then, it was, "would you like a letter?" and 'Click!'

Ouch! No more business there. Sheesh.
