Cleaning Out The Trash

| Right | August 14, 2014

(It is 10 minutes after closing, and my manager hadn’t locked our front door. Two customers walk in. Our focus is on customer service as a business, so we allow them to shop. I am currently mopping the floor, which is filthy because of the snow.)

Customer #1: “Ew! Something smells disgusting over here!” *walking towards mop bucket* “Ugh, it’s this!”

Me: “I’m sorry, it’s strong cleaning fluid. Our floors get nasty in the winter.”

Customer #2: “Do you really need to do that right now? We are trying to shop!”

Me: *eyetwitch* “I’m very sorry, ladies. We closed 15 minutes ago, so I am just trying to finish the nightly chores so we can go home. I haven’t mopped in the direction you’re headed, so it shouldn’t bother you after this patch.”

Customer #1: “…rude.” *both of them walk off*

Coworker: *who has been watching quietly* “Actually, I just finished mopping over there.”

Me: “You’re my favorite.”
