Ok, so after browsing many a letter on this site, I have come to realize that the vast majority of people who right to LettersIllNeverSend are writing about love. Whether it be love lost, love gained, or someone pining for love, there is a common theme. I am sorry to those who are reading this particular letter but this is not about that.
This is about my job.
I am 17 years old and my summer job is at a small ice-cream shop right by the ocean. I just got off working a 9 hour shift and I have noticed something. Many people who come to get ice-cream are rude. Not rude as in they don’t say thank-you, or they grab the free sample spoon from my hand instead of taking it gently (though many people also do this). I mean rude as in, “You are very stupid,” and “have you even been to school before?”. People roll their eyes at me, yell at me, and are just a horrible raincloud on a perfectly sunny day. You would think that people who come to receive ice-cream would be ecstatic to come and choose their favourite flavour of a delicious treat. While this is the case the majority of the time, many many people are not. A woman asked me if I was stupid today because I told her that I was not allowed to mix 2 flavours into 1 scoop. It does not feel nice to be treated poorly by complete strangers.
So to whomever is reading this, though it may not be quite as interesting as the lost or gained love, please please treat others with kindness. It seems like common sense but you would be surprised how many people in this world manage to ignore that one simple piece of advice. Treat others as you would like to be treated.
Also, in conclusion, do not fuck with those who are serving you food.
