*not about the service, but about trash treatment of employees by a male customer & his wife
I was early to pick up my food, so I saw this entire interaction…
Cute, young girl, assuming high school/college age: “Hi, what can I get for you?”
Guy, older middle-aged male with his wife: “So you’re not gonna say hi welcome to chipotle?!” *insert babbling and flailing arms (as if she did something wrong or out of the ordinary)*
Guy: “Try it again, try it with me – Welcome to Chipotle. What can I get for you?”
*Girl stands their awkwardly*
Guy: “Go ahead, try it.”
Girl: “Hi welcome to chipotle.” *face turns red*
Guy: “There you go.”
*****girl finishes making the first part of the order, and now the guy is onto the next employee for selecting his toppings*****
Next girl, also cute and young (and obviously wearing a mask): “What would you like?”
Guy: “Why aren’t you smiling?”
Girl: “I’m wearing a mask you can’t see my face.”
Guy: “I can still tell.” *laughs, and so does his wife.*
Girl: *is over this guys bs after just watching how he treated her friend* “I don’t smile. Ever.”
Guy: “What why? How? And you have a job?”
Girl: *explains herself*
I’ll just stop there bc I’m shaking typing this and my heart is racing so fast after just being a bystander of that entire thing.
I went up and talked to the girls once the guy and his wife left.
I’m not going to go on and on about what should have not happened / how to treat people / the madness behind this… you’d think it’d be obvious… especially during a time like now…..????
In situations like this, I usually can’t hold back and I always step in. But with this one, I was honestly almost in tears to see this guy treat these girls in this way, while his wife just stood there and supported/laughed the entire time.
It’s like I was in that place for a reason and to share this. If you resonate with this in any way, do/take what you need from it. ***Especially in 2020, especially during the holiday season, especially during the middle of a pandemic, especially *insert all of the other thousands of reasons*.
