Sometimes you have to believe the good in people out weighs the bad intents you're receiving; for the annoying feeling you perceive may be your own inner working not being able to rightly adjust to the love being shown because of your lack of being able to give a 100% of it of yourself; maybe.
Talk about an epiphany, Glenn. You must be correct. How else could someone with such insight gaze into the soul of a perfect stranger and rectify his wicked, wicked ways?
I have been approaching these people - these customers who I thought were merely making my life difficult - unaware that they were actually displaying inspiring amounts of love and good will.
Like that pregnant woman who told me to go "fuck myself" when I forgot her side of sour cream. I see now through your prose that she wasn't condemning me; she was nurturing and encouraging me, challenging me to put my all into the passions of my day job.
Like that grumpy old man who kept calling everyone a "faggot," who sneezed on my hands as I set down his food and did not leave a tip. Surely through his actions any logical person would have seen miraculous evinces of unconditional love and empathy, the kind of human spirit stuff that truly tugs at your heart strings.
Or like that warlock of an Armenian man, who upon seeing that we serve our Ahi tuna salad at a cook-recommended medium rare, proceeded to dump it on the table in front of his companions for their amusement. Only someone blind, deaf and dumb would have misconstrued that for anything less than love.
So thank you, Glenn. Henceforth I shall approach these gentle souls with only the kindest of thoughts and the most flattering of descriptions. I will shortly rename this blog "GRATEFUL WAITER" and will regale everyone with stories of generosity and selflessness not seen since Jesus addressed humanity in the Gospel.
Go in love, everyone.
