The Flogging Will Continue ... Part 2
Wasn't it just spring? Didn't we just have a bright, new season ahead of us? Weren't the concessionaires nice?
I try to be positive, despite the climbing temperatures, the growing belly and the team's win-loss record, but I can't help but wonder where our happy-to-serve-you concessionaires went. You know ... the ones who spent weeks learning how to love their job and believing the customer is always right? And while there is no one more sympathetic than a pregnant woman on a very hot day, I don't understand why the people working the concession stands have gone from happy to belligerent in a matter of months. Is it really so hard to be nice to a person who politely asks for a hot dog and soda? Yeah, it's hot working the grill. Yeah, the Nats are terribly inconsistent. Yeah, the pay probably does stink. But why do you have to be so mean?
