I work in a restaurant. It is usually a fun job, and I like and value the relationships I have with my coworkers. It can be tough sometimes when people are rude to you and you have to smile and just do what they want. Zac had a table of four people that sent back their smoothies..what could have been wrong with them? I think it is pretty hard to mess a smoothie up. Some people come in with the attitude that they are going to get stuff for free by complaining, and it is hard to deal with them because they are taking advantage of the restaurant. Of course, if something is wrong, we want to fix it, but don't make other people's lives harder for no reason. So I told Zac (an atheist) that I would pray for them not to complain about anything else. I was hesitant to tell him that because if they kept complaining then I would look foolish. They proceeded to send three other items back, called the manager over, and basically were miserable the whole time. I felt a little silly that I prayed about those people, obviously to no avail, until it started raining. Over their table. Inside. The ceiling started leaking...a lot! They had to get up and move. Luckily, they were almost finished anyway, but it was pretty hilarious, and I have to say I didn't feel bad for them. I gave God the credit, but I don't know if anyone believed me. Zac thought it was pretty awesome, but I guess they could just call it a coincidence. I know better.
