Chocolate Cures All, Part 2

| Friendly | May 9, 2017

(I just got diagnosed with a sinus infection and a really bad ear infection that I don’t feel. On top of that my period had started and is rather painful the first two days. Nonetheless, I still come to work but have a ton of medicine in my system. About a half-hour into my shift, I suddenly lose all strength in my body and fight to not pass out by leaning against the counter and baskets whenever no one is looking. I see a customer approach and straighten myself and put the best smile on that I can.)

Me: “Hello, how much do you need?”

Customer: *looks really concerned* “Are you all right?”

Me: “I’m fine.”

Customer: “Are you sure? I saw you leaning against the basket and you look pale.”

Me: “I just feel very weak right now. I’m on a ton of antibiotics after seeing the doctor yesterday.”

Customer: “Do you want me to get you something? Like chocolate?”

Me: “That… would be nice.”

(As I cut her material, she runs to the front and returns a few minutes later with a chocolate bar.)

Me: “I…”

Customer: “Don’t worry, chocolate is a good pick me up.”

(I finished cutting her material and thanked her, send her on her way taking a few nibbles of the chocolate. About an hour later and a quick break my strength returned, allowing me to finish my shift with no problems. The customer returned a few days later allowing me to thank her once again for the chocolate and she was glad to hear that I got better and that my infection was almost cleared. Thank you so much, miss.)
