    Cease-Fire Is Over When You Can’t Be Fired

    | Toronto, ON, Canada | At The Checkout, Awesome Customers, Awesome Workers, Top

    (I am working my very first shift at a new job. The coworker training me has stepped out to make a call. A middle-aged customer comes up to the counter looking cross. As he does a young woman comes through the door and sees him.)

    Young Woman: “Oh, no! Oh, no, no, no! No you don’t!”

    (The man turns around to face her in shock.)

    Young Woman: “Not a chance! You came in here every single day for a year just to bully and ridicule me! You made me wait on you hand and foot, and complained the whole time, and you’ve yet to actually buy anything! Every day that you came in here—and made my life h***—I went home and cried! You are nothing but a mean, pathetic loser, and I’ll be d***** if I let you treat this poor girl the way you treated me!”

    Customer: “EXCUSE ME? YOU WILL BE FIRED FOR THIS YOU WORTHLESS B****!”

    Young Woman: “Nope, not this time a**-hole! I don’t work here anymore. I got into college. I’m going to make something of myself. Now you go back to your sad angry little life, and don’t you dare harass anyone who works here again!”

    (The man turns red, but leaves. The woman comes up to the counter smiling brightly.)

    Young Woman: “Hey, you must be the new girl! I used to work here; just dropped by to pick up my last pay-check.”

    (She notices my shocked expression.)

    Young Woman: “I’ve been bottling that up for a long time. He shouldn’t bother you again.”
