Nausiating but True

Yesterday at work, a couple came in and asked if they needed to order at the counter. We told them to have a seat. They went outside and walked right past the big "section closed" sign to sit on the patio. I went out to take their order and asked them if they wouldn't be more comfortable inside. Most of the people who started outside moved indoors because the breeze in the shade was quite fall-ish. They informed me that they ran hot.

They were idecisive, and when I brought their food, the lady pulled me aside in a confidential manner and asked for extra onions. She just loves a lot of onions. I went to the computer, ordered onion and brought it to her. Upon bringing the check, she grabbed me and asked about the $.25 spinach charge. I told her that was her extra onion. She sat and stared at the bill for a long time. I heard her saying "Well SHE...." to her husband as I cleared the table next to her. Finally they left. And on their credit card receipt was a $4.00. Then under it -$.25. Then under that a total of $3.75.

People are rediculous.

In the other realm of nausiating but true, Alan and I were watching Batman last night, and over the credits was lovely Danny Elfan scoring. At one point the music played the following (stay with me): Dum da Dum DUMMMM! (!) Without hesitation or consultation, and in unison, both of us sang: Dum da DUUUUM! (Re...mi...fa) And then burst out laughing. In the soundtrack was the first four notes of the Indiana Jones Theme, and we both obliged by singing the second line. At the same time.

Sad, that.
