Welp I'm about to get fired. Getting completely bitched at for spending time outside my work cuz theres nothing to do so I am having a cigarette with a friend. Honestly fn ridiculous. Literally being forced now to stare at a wall for like 3 to 4 hours of my shift because I get everything done early but its ok to stare at a wall when I dont have customers but if someone shows up and I want to talk for like 10 min I cant do that. Like WTH!??!?! I do everything in that fn place and I'm getting punished because I finished my stuff early

Showoff thread finally!!!! : )

When I worked at the ice cream place, all of us would regularly sit and talk with friends - or even complete strangers that sat at the counter and struck a conversation up with us (which usually meant a nice tip, to boot). It wasn't everyone at once, so other people would pick up the slack if we were busy, since A) they can make tips and B) it's essentially a good customer service practice, and makes them feel welcome and want to come back.

There was one time I ended up talking to a guy and his wife outside for like an hour, as he pulled in with his red 1985 IROC-Z, and I had my red 1986 IROC-Z there.

I'm assuming that the ice cream place was a family owned business and not a franchise thing though haha, I could never work for a franchise again..

Franchise = soulless conglomerate

Our place can be less than professional at times, but it's essentially one big family and we usually get along great. It's when staff start sleeping with other staff that things get weird lol

Yup - been there over 50 years. I only know of one person who actually applied to work there - everybody else knew the family (my dad knew them from wiring their house for whole house stereo, and also wired all the speakers for the music inside and outside at the store).
