November Theme Of The Month: Black Friday!

Time For Giving And Receiving, Part 2

| Robeline, LA, USA | Awesome Customers, Holidays, Theme Of The Month

(My coworker, who has just gotten off shift, is leaning against the counter talking to me when an older gentleman walks in.)

Me: *smiling* “Good evening and Merry Christmas!”

Customer: *frowning* “Why are you here? It’s Christmas!”

Coworker: *smiling* “Well, we don’t close for Christmas. She’s closing up shop, but I’ve just gotten off and am about to go home.”

Customer: *suddenly grinning* “Wait right here!” *turns on his heel and goes out the door*

Coworker: “…Okay, what was that?”

Me: “I have no idea!”

(The customer returns and gives my coworker a $20 bill then lays one on the counter in front of me.)

Customer: “Merry Christmas, ladies, and a Happy New Year too!”

(We both stare after him as he walks out, gets into his SUV and leaves. We then look at each other.)

Coworker: “Wow, that’s the nicest thing anyone’s done all day!”

Me: “Well, this is the season for miracles, isn’t it?”

(I still have no idea who that man was!)
