An obnoxious young woman dressed in her newly purchased anorak, let an audible groan from her bright red lips as she sniffs the air.
“This place smells awful!” Receiving a puzzled look from the nebbish waiter, she continued, “bring me something that doesn’t smell like it’s been sitting under hot lights for a few days!”
The waiter, also being the proprietor of the restaurant, felt bruised. He remained polite even as the woman lit up a cigarette and demanded an ashtray. When he said there was no smoking, she tossed it into the water glass. The establishment was new and he wanted to promote good will and encourage customers, but this woman had no respect.
His heart wasn’t in it but he had to ask her to leave.
