Top Ten Reasons To Never Piss Off a Service Worker
By Amy Lane
Cory Kirkpatrick starts out in Vulnerable as a gas station clerk, working her way through college. Now, a lot of us worked our asses off to get that college degree—and a lot of us have the battle scars to prove it.
So we all know that the kid serving our coffee or selling us Cheetohs one minute might be the next CEO of a Fortune 500 company the next—but that’s not the only reason to treat your service workers with respect.
Top ten reasons to never piss off a service worker—coming right up, with a smile.
10. Cold coffee
9. Warm water
8. Lost mail
7. Lost cable during that big game—no matter what game it may be.
6. Bad karma
5. Guilty conscience
4. Angry big brothers/husbands/monarchs
3. Mysterious explosions
2. Unexpectedly related to that hot girl/boy you were crushing on
And the number one reason not to piss off your service worker is…
He or she may actually be the bearer of a sexually powered nuclear fusion weapon that emanates from his or her body.
Be nice. Tip well. Never condescend.
Blurb: Working graveyards in a gas station seems a small price for Cory to pay to get her degree and get the hell out of her tiny town. She’s terrified of disappearing into the aimless masses of the lost and the young who haunt her neck of the woods. Until the night she actually stops looking at her books and looks up. What awaits her is a world she has only read about—one filled with fantastical creatures that she’s sure she could never be.
And then Adrian walks in, bearing a wealth of pain, an agonizing secret, and a hundred and fifty years with a lover he’s afraid she won’t understand. In one breathless kiss, her entire understanding of her own worth and destiny is turned completely upside down. When her newfound world explodes into violence and Adrian’s lover—and prince—walks into the picture, she’s forced to explore feelings and abilities she’s never dreamed of. The first thing she discovers is that love doesn’t fit into nice neat little boxes. The second thing is that risking your life is nothing compared to facing who you really are—and who you’ll kill to protect.
Author Bio: Amy Lane is a mother of four and a compulsive knitter who writes because she can’t silence the voices in her head. She adores cats, Chi-who-whats, knitting socks, and hawt menz, and she dislikes moths, cat boxes, and knuckle-headed macspazzmatrons. She is rarely found cooking, cleaning, or doing domestic chores, but she has been known to knit up an emergency hat/blanket/pair of socks for any occasion whatsoever, or sometimes for no reason at all.
She writes in the shower, while at the gym, while taxiing children to soccer/dance/gymnastics/band—oh my!—and has learned from necessity to type like the wind.
She lives in a spider-infested, crumbling house in a shoddy suburb and counts on her beloved Mate to keep her tethered to reality—which he does, while keeping her cell phone charged as a bonus. She’s been married for twenty-plus years and still believes in Twu Wuv, with a capital Twu and a capital Wuv, and she doesn’t see any reason at all for that to change.
