Yeah, okay, I know the title sucks but it's much nicer than calling him the drunken douchewaffle from hell. Okay, maybe that just has a much nicer ring to it LOL
Anyhow, we have a dude who stops by regularly demanding a cup of water and he's none too nice about it. He barks his demand as he makes his way to the bathroom and doesn't give a shit if there's a line-up or not when he comes back - if his water isn't ready when he's finished in the bathroom he gets quite rude and belligerent.
Well, today he came in and he did his usual. He found out that I will NOT tolerate his behaviour.
He barked at me for not having his water ready and started getting rude with me in front of another customer. Not that Water Guy is a customer anyway, but y'know what I mean. I turned around and told him that I had told him I'd get his water when I was finished what I was doing and if he kept it up I'd kick him out and ban his arse. WG's jaw almost his the floor and he actually thanked me when I got him his water.
The other customer (the paying one) said afterwards that I have a lot more patience than he'd ever have and tipped me $3 on a $2 drink. Every little bit helps...especially seeing as how cooking at home right now just isn't happening, and sometimes a treat from Tim Horton's is very welcome
