Me: ‘Would you like your invoice and your receipt stapled together?’
Boater mumbled something like: “*(&)”
Me as I’m stapling their invoice and receipt together: ‘Pardon, did you say you wanted it stapled together?’
Boater: “I’ll take it whatever way you hand it to me, I’m horrible with receipts anyway”
Me watching as boater takes my nice and neat stapled invoice and receipt and folds it INSIDE OUT. By inside out I mean that all the writing is on the inside and all they can see on the outside is blank paper.
Me: ‘No no no, you don’t want to fold it like that, if you fold it like that then the next time you are looking for a receipt amongst your millions of folded papers, you have to UNFOLD each of them to see what it is’
Boater: “Well, isn’t that the SMARTEST thing ever, I’ve NEVER thought of doing it that way before!”
Me thinking, Don’t I have the most rewarding job ever? I wonder if teachers feel this way everyday?
