I switched shifts tonight at work with one of the other girls. We are switching permanently as of today and I am taking her blue Friday 5-9 and she's taking my 1-5. Got to work with Abby who is awesome cool and stuff. Which was good. An old HS classmate came in tonight and actually recognised me. We chatted. She is an artist in Chicago and has a VERY interesting exhibit. Check it out: http://www.re-title.com/artists/Lacie-G
Then the stupid happened.
I was working and when I turned around, there was a bearded man staring in the barrista door. I walked over and was trying to talk to him. He asked if he had to go around to the other door and I said yes, that the door he was standing at was JUST for the people who worked there. He said "Oh, okay. This is a nice door."
Who the hell says that?? So I told Abby to lock the door. She told me I was overreacting.
The guys come in and order coffee. I get them for them. The bearded guy went to the bathroom and the younger kid got the coffee. When the bearded guy came out, they were giving me the weird, creepy incest vibe as the kid hung all over him. It took them an extremely long time to fill their coffee cups. I took another order and looked over at the bearded guy and smiled.
"Flaming. I'm sorry, that's the only word I have for it."
He mumbled some other things and wandered out to the seating area.
The kid comes back just after that while I am making a drink and asks how much the artwork is. I found out from Abby and went out from the counter to tell him. They were sitting at tables beside the works they were looking at. I told them they had to contact the artist and showed them where her number was. The bearded man's cell phone rang and he said, "Hey, maybe that's her calling now."
"Speak of the devil," the younger stated. I went back behind the bar to help Abby with drinks. We made a couple of drinks and a customer came back.
"Did you know that a couple of guys just took paintings and walked out with them?"
"Are you SHITTING me??"
"No, they just walked out with them." The customer walked back out into the seating area. The customer I was getting an order for pointed out the window.
"That's one of them right there."
We got the plate number of the car. The customer who alerted us to the attempted theft brought in the paintings.
"Here. I took these away from them."
The guy went outside and TOOK the art away from the guys stealing it. LOL
So then we called everyone necessary. The police came. The girl didn't want to file a report since her art was recovered.
Stupid fuckers. Can't believe they did that.
So that was my crazy frigging night. LOL
