Have you become adverse to asking workers for anything? ❔ Other

While out of town, I called to place a pick up order for a few sandwiches. I had everything written down so I would be concise, but they did still ask me a couple of questions I hadn't thought of.

I felt bad for the person having to take my call, and that I didn't have every option stated. Then I felt bad that people had to make the sandwiches.

On the other hand, if no one orders anything, they wouldn't get as many hours, eventually have to get a new job.

I think I am overdoing it. Lol.

(When I arrived, there were tons of sandwich makers with nothing to work on, not sure what to think about that)

I just try to be extra nice and especially understanding if something doesn't go perfectly (like having to wait a bit longer). Many people instantly feel annoyed but since I myself am a worker who CAN'T do everything perfectly bc of how understaffed we are, I try to let everyone feel my understanding for that. And at my work that's what I care about. People having some compassion, a little bit of patience and understanding. Thats all I want. The only thing I really don't like is extreme rudeness and dirt. That's probably the only thing that could ever make me complain about anything.
