So I went into Woods on Baggot st this morning for my bacon roll and a danish. These two items are almost always enough to keep me going until six in the evening and more to the point, they're addictively tasty. They've had a new employee in there for the last month or so but I try to avoid being served by her since she seems sort of.... creepy.
It's nothing I could firmly put my finger on but anyone who takes a bread roll and stuffs ALL the bacon into the middle bit, leaving the ends bacon free, well... that's not normal - in fact it feels to me like she might have anger issues.
Anyway I didn't have a choice this morning as she was the only one behind the counter. I ordered my roll and picked out a danish from the heap.
In the meantime, two more people came in behind me, the first one gets himself a sausage roll, the next one gets himself a danish. Now, I'm at the front of the queue but she decides to deal with us mere customers in reverse order, which didn't so much bother me as puzzle me. The last guy paid up for his danish and then she asked the sausage roll guy for 4.85 euro which he paid without comment. Then it was my turn and she rings up six euro on the till and asked me for it.
I said "err... no, it's three for the roll and 1.70 for the danish"
She replied "Yes, six euro"
Wondering what the hell was going on, I pressed the point "No, three plus 1.70 is 4.70, it's 4.70 for a roll and a danish"
She spent a while looking at the price board behind the counter and turned back to me and said "Oh, ok, five euro".
I dunnow, maybe all her bills arrived at once.
