(Due to it being my time of month with a heavy flow and a very nasty sinus and ear infection, there are a ton of medications in my system but I still get myself to work as I don’t feel that bad. A half hour into my shift I suddenly become very weak and my legs become very shaky. Still I put on a brave face to not worry my coworkers and customers and just lean on the counter and carts for balance. I’m catching my breath when I notice a customer coming up to the counter.)

Me: *assume acting face* Hi, how can I help you.

Customer: *not convinced* Are you alright? You weren’t looking that good and you’re pale.

Me: I’ll be alright it will pass.

Customer: Are you sure? Do you need anything like water or food?

Me: Maybe but I’ll hold off till my break, how much do you need?

Customer: Four yards and I’ll be right back.

(I begin to measure out her material while she runs up to the front. She returns a few minutes later with a chocolate bar in hand.)

Customer: There you go.

Me: *shocked* Oh wow…you didn’t have too.

Customer: Chocolate makes everything better. You’re blood sugar might be low so this should help.

(She was right. After a few nibbles on the chocolate and a quick break, my strength returned and I was able to finish my shift with no problems. I saw the same customer a few days later and she was very happy to see that I was doing better and that the chocolate helped.)
