Friday Fictioneers: The Customer


PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.

“Um, Miss?”

“Yeah,” I say as I’m closing down my food truck. I have just sold all the food for the day and ready to head home.

“Are you closed?”

“Yeah,” I answered. “Can I help you?”

He shakes his cup of ice, “I was hoping you’d refill this?”

Puzzled, I say, “Sorry, I don’t do refills.” If I did, I’d be broke.

“Oh,” sounding disappointed, he returns to the picnic table beneath a tree, on it are two other cup and a ketchup bottle.

Feeling resigned, I grab a backup bottle of cola and join him at the table.

  1. What would we do without the “refillable” drink???? For many small businesses it is a huge burden, and yet, it does breed customer loyalty… and that breeds regulars, and regulars are what pays the everyday expenses. Good take on the prompt this week.

    • Thank you. I have visited some restaurants, especially food trucks which don’t offer free refills. Personally, I’m fine with it but obviously, it’s important to some and you’re right, it earns customer loyalty.
