No one knows pettiness better than retail and food service workers of the world. When you have to grin and bear whatever your customers say to you, you quickly realize there are other ways you can get back at them. If you work at a coffee shop, you can give a cranky customer a coffee with way too much “room” for creamer, or you can wait a few extra moments so their drink is cold. Or if you work at a restaurant, you can try and sneakily give mean diners a smaller portion of fries or wilted lettuce for their salad. If you do it correctly, the customer might not even notice your passive-aggressive plan. Instead, they’ll just have a slightly worse day—same as the did to you. The possibilities are endless once you use your petty imagination!
