them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman

Dumbest exchange of the weekend.
Went into Wendy's to order. A girl in the 16-22 years old range took my order.
"Will that be carryout or eat in?"
She prints the receipt, gets out a dine-in tray, and puts it on the tray. The slip is face up and clearly says, "carryout" in all caps to anyone who even glances at it.
I stare at the dine-in tray. She's buzzing along not really noticing. Another worker and the manager is standing within her body space (those kitchens are small). No one says anything. Finally I say, "Uh, it's carryout," noting the tray. The girl looks confused. I repeat it.
The girl reaches under the counter, gets a carryout bag (hooray, success!), the manager and the other coworker put my food in it... and then the girl dumps the bag on the carry-out tray and slides it across the counter it to me.
I'm confused. "Do you just want me to leave the tray here? It's carryout."
The girl looks at me blankly, half-frozen smile on her face.
"Thanks," I say after another ten seconds of awkward exchange, take my bag and soda, leave the dine-in tray on the counter, go get my salt and straw and napkins, and just get out of that place.
I'm hoping she was new and she had ESL. Otherwise her future career options are not looking so hot."Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
