So we're at work this afternoon ~ myself and She. Her eldest 21'ish son turns up and has walked a good 5 miles to come and see Her. I say " Hi ****, how are you?" *upbeat* She says "Uh Hello" * turns back to kitchen. The place is dead, we have no customers, so I say 'Oh it's nice of him to come all this way, what does he want?' *joke* 'I can cover here if you want to have lunch or a drink with him' 'I'm cleaning the coffee machine' in unnecessarily harsh voice. 2 hours later... Her son is at a table, laptop plugged in but still watching for where She is. We still have no customers. She decides to make a sandwich for Herself and sits Herself a table away from Her son to eat and pretend to do paper work. My questions are: If your child had walked all that way to see you would you ignore them? If you were offered complete cover time to enjoy that time with them would you not take it? If you'd had issues, whatever they may be, surely a gesture like this would be a good thing. And even if someone offers to cover you for however long, why not take it? I sincerely do not understand this woman.
