A Harried Hurry

, , , , | Right | May 27, 2021

I work in the front end of a pharmacy that offers photo printing services. I am helping a customer on one of the photo kiosks located right next to the checkout. I am also the only employee up front, as it’s a slow season and we have few hours to go around. While I am still helping the photo customer, another customer walks up to the checkout.

Me: “Hi there, I’ll be with you in just a moment.

I continue helping the photo customer, as we are almost finished.

Customer: “HELLOOOOOO! I’m ready to check out now!

Me: “Yes, sir, I’ll be right with you as soon as I’m done helping this other customer.


I ask the photo customer to please give me a moment to ring this man up, as he seems awfully impatient. I ring him up with no issue until the receipt printer freezes up as it sometimes does.

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, I’ll have your receipt in just a moment. Sometimes the printer stops in the middle of printing a receipt, and we have to wait a minute for it to finish printing.

Customer: “Oh, it’s okay. I’m not in any hurry.”
