We’re all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Standard

Taking payment for some theatre tickets from a German woman, she interjects.

Customer: Where are you from?
Me: Wales.
C: You have a great voice, so clear.
Me: Thank you.
C: Really it’s very nice. Very precise.
Me: Well I’ve worked here a while. Most customers aren’t English, so you get used to speaking clearly.
C: Why does someone like you work here? You should be doing something else with your life, you’re better than this place I think.

*I can’t believe it. Finally someone is seeing the potential in me, she understands I’m destined for greatness*

Me: Do you think so?
C: Yes! You could be teaching foreigners to speak English.

*Oh.*
