SImple Disappointments...

(forgot to post last night)

Simple Dissappointments
Even trivial, it's just a bummer.

I live in a small town, the ice cream parlor is across town.

My folks wanted Banana Splits and I had been jonesing for a Hot Fudge sunday for a few days. So I hop in the car make the trek, order the stuff.

Watch them MAKE the banana splits WELL before I make it to the window since I can see inside.

I get to the window:

No personality Drive-Thru Attendant: "We're out of Hot Fudge, Do you want another topping?"

Me: Thinking: "WHAT? How can Foster's Freeze RUN OUT of Hot Fudge. That ingrediant is in EVERYTHING YOU MAKE practically" What I say: "You couldn't tell me that when I ordered 15 minutes ago? No, I don't want another topping, and give me those splits please before they melt into SOUP already."

Attendant: "I could scrape the can"

Me: O_O *GROSS* .... "I don't want the DREGS that have been stewing in the can all day EITHER, can I please have what you already made It's ice cream, I've a 10 minute drive they are MELTING."

Attendant: Hands me messy containers (No bag)

Me: "They are dripping everywhere, how about a BAG?" (thinking) "Do you have a brain in there anywhere?"

Attendant: (Slams them in a bag)

I am now pissed off. EVERYTIME I go there there is always SOMETHING wrong. There is NEVER a cheerful employee ever, they never get shit right ever and It's like their paper bags must cost a million bucks because you have to ASK FOR ONE every time.

They are always rude, They either fuck up my change, fuck up my order, or like tonight RUN OUT of a basic ingredient.

My parents got soupy Banana SPlits, I got NOTHING, I get attitude immediately from stupid drive-through idiot with ZERO COMMON SENSE.

I WISH we had more than ONE ice Cream joint in town. I hate going there because I KNOW I'm gonna drive away angry, blown away by stupidity or disappointed.

I drove away tonight all three.

*pouts* I know it's stupid to get angry and upset over stupid ice cream. But ya know, it's disappointing and it's like a PROCESS to get there and back without it melting all over my car.

(watches parents eat... *pouts more*. I want some. :depressed: But I don't like anything else. So if they're out of the only thing I DO like ice cream wise, it's sort of pointless... I only like Vanilla with Hot fudge. :( )

Le sigh

Go to the supermarket, buy some vanilla ice cream and some hot fudge, and take it home so you can have them whenever you want? It is so very sad to not have a good ice cream parlour! I run into places being out of whatever it is I want all the time; I know how you feel. It seems like such a trivial thing but you WANTED it! And your stomach's all I'M GETTING A HOT FUDGE SUNDAE! I'M GETTING A HOT FUDGE SUNDAE! and then doesn't. Wah.

I haven't had a hot fudge sundae since... well, it's been a couple of years at least, I'm more of a shaved ice person myself. But I second the suggestion of just buying the ice cream and the fudge-in-a-jar and doing it yourself even though it's not soft serve. Will save you aggravation.

*nods to the buy your own ice cream and hot fudge at the supermarket thing*

I've never heard of an ice cream place taking orders though, besides for ice cream cakes ^^:. But dyamn, you called them and placed your order, they could have had the decency right then and there to tell you "Oh, me sorry we out of de hot fudge, durrr". Idiots...

But damn... now you're making me crave something from Dairy Queen... andandand I have sinus headache big time.. dun wanna drive.. but want iiiiice cream T^T.

dire need of ice cream social
God I'm so glad we have decent ice cream parlors in town. Two of them are family owned, the best in town, and one of them is over a 100 years old, they have the soda fountain and everything. Not to mention we have a few Cold Stone Creamery's lying around. If I was jonesing for some ice cream and couldn't get what I wanted, from an ice cream parlor, I would be royally pissed. That's when I go to the grocery store and grab a pint of Ben&Jerry's. Next time you come down, we'll have to go to that ice cream parlor that I took you guys when you last came to visit, it's simply the best.

All of my therapists have always told me that nothing that upsets you is minor ... if it upsets you, it's obviously important to you.

So don't apologize over putting what appears to be too much weight into a minor thing. Sometimes, when you are looking forward to something and expect it to be pleasant and enjoyable, and it turns out to be a horrible, it can turn your whole day bad. Nobody thinks it odd when you suck all the pleasure you can out of a small thing; nobody should find it odd when the reverse ends up being true.

I'm sorry that you didn't get ice cream. :(

Okay coming from a chick who was one of the best drive-thru cashiers our store had (fast food, ice cream, pretty similar to me)...

#1. If they didn't slam the window in your face, they were probably having an average night. (I've actually dealt with customers being rude to me and slamming that window does feel good. And after so long, that window gets slammed to turn to the others and go "What do you mean we are OUT?! Just as the customer reaches the window you tell me we ran out of ingredient x?! Why didn't you tell me this WHEN IT HAPPENED??"

#2. If they have managers like I did, they are pissed with management and are most likely, sick of having to do the job of management and being the only crew member who has a fucking clue what to do, including management. We couldn't keep a night crew or managers. If we had a good one, they got rid of them.

#3. Being the bitchy person I am, they are glad it wasn't me. "Give me the money I paid, I will go to the damned store, buy the shit and make them when I get home because I am DONE dealing with THIS STORE and it's incompetent employees! I will call the district manager; I will have a complaint filed that way; and I will be glad to get the hell out of here."

So they had a relatively nice time with you. (Okay, I never said I was good at the compassionate part of the comforting process, just the bitching and agreeing part. ^_^)
