The Total Package
The woman rushed inside to buy her food - "Got to hurry times a-wastin' "
The cashier is so slow, come on come on hasten, hasten!
Finally, it is my turn to tell her what I need.
Hmm, this girl is not very friendly, downright indifferent indeed.
Does she realize it is my money that her family feeds?
I wonder if she heard me say bread without any seed."
"Ok, ok here I stand at this counter patiently waiting.
Will I even have time to eat now I am debating?
On my tray, she haphazardly places my food.
My goodness, how utterly, utterly rude!"
The woman took the cup that was only half-filled with drink.
She grabbed the tray and thought, "I must tell the cashier what I think!"
"Excuse me, Excuse me, I'm talking to you Miss
I feel I am not receiving proper service, look at this!"
The cashier said, " I am truly sorry for the half-filled cup.
Here you go - now there, it's all filled up.
I am having a really bad day;
That is no excuse, but I must say,
It is hard to work worrying about my little girl.
I love her more than anything in the whole world.
She is very sick and the doctors aren't giving us much hope.
I need this job, but with all this, it is really hard to cope.
The woman stood there with the filled cup and her hand kind of shakin'.
She said, "I'm so sorry" and knew she had been mistaken,
To have labeled this girl as uncaring and rude.
All the woman had been worried about was getting her food.
Now, what label did this girl place on the woman do you think?
