“A doctor came in to get some ice cream.
As he checked out, he said, ‘Darn I left my wallet in the car.’
I assumed he was just going to go get it, but nope.
Doctor: ‘Can I just get the ice cream?’
Me: ‘Yeah, the total is seven bucks.’
Doctor: ‘I left my wallet in the car.’
Me: ‘I can grab you a new ice cream when you get your wallet.’
Doctor: ‘I’m not going back to my car, then coming back, and going back. I’m a DOCTOR. I’m tired, and just want my ice cream.’
He was pretty loud and clearly frustrated, but I didn’t care.
I thought, ‘You’re a doctor. You probably make more money than me. You can afford ice cream, and you can walk for 2 minutes.’
Me: ‘When you pay for it.’
Doctor: ‘I WORK HARD! I’M TIRED! I DON’T WANT TO WALK!’
Me: ‘THEN YOU DON’T GET THE ICE CREAM!’
He went to the service desk again to try to get free ice cream again, but it didn’t work. He was visually red and angered. This whole scenario was 10 minutes, which was plenty of time to go get your wallet. I’m not saying doctors are not hard workers or they don’t get tired, but you pay like everyone else, you’re not special.”
