A Despicable Lack Of Attention

, , , | Right | October 25, 2015

(We are allowed to wear costumes at work on Halloween. I thought this would make it easier to find out which associate helped the customers, since the customers never remember their names.)

Me: “Did anyone help you today?”

Customer: “Yes, but I forget his name.”

Me: “That’s okay. Was he wearing a costume?”

Customer: “No.”

(I put in the name of the only associate not wearing a costume. Our uniforms consist of black pants and a simple collared red T-shirt. The transaction ends.)

Customer: “Oh! It was him!”

(They pointed to an associate wearing a Gru costume from “Despicable Me”… which consists of a grey turtleneck sweater, a striped grey scarf, and a large Minion stuffy.)
