RPCC — After waiting impatiently to be swiped in, Phoebe Adams, ‘20 was bothered when a local cafeteria worker didn’t return her bland, apathetic “Hello.”
“I went to get dinner just like I do every day and gave the person at the register my usual indifferent greeting. I thought they would appreciate that,” said Adams, who went on to angrily demand extra chicken wings from another dining staff member.
Adams believed that her monotone greeting warranted more than a simple smile and nod of acknowledgement.
“I even went as far as to ask them how they were. I didn’t want to hear any of it, but I thought it was courteous, yet I get nothing in return,” added Adams
Adams ended up eating alone in frustration, beleaguered by less-than-friendly service workers, and left without bussing her plate.
