I work as a Host at TGI Fridays. Sometimes during really busy shifts I’ll help servers out by taking initial drink orders when I seat tables. Well, its Friday night, we’re almost at full capacity and I seat a group of 5 or 6 really “LOUD” people. I see the server for that section busy with a 10 top so I’m like, “I’ll get these guys drinks”.

Well, all is going okay and then this probably 8 or 9 year old girl tells me “I want juice”. I ask her what kind, and she says, seemingly dumbfounded at my question, “Juice”. I’m totally lost so I just ask again and her (I’m assuming) mother says to me “Damn boy just get her the juice.” I ask “What kind does she like” and she says back “What you mean what kind? Its juice”. At this point I’m just done so I guess apple juice. I bring it back and she says “No, JUICE” and nobody at the table seems to think there is anything wrong with this request so I just apologize and get the manager to work it out. Just, holy fuck this little girl is going to vote and procreate one day and I’m just scared for that.
