Clogged By Her Own Entitlement

, , , , | Right | July 8, 2018

(I am a third key manager at a national dollar store chain and it is pretty much the only store in the area. For a few weeks, we haven’t been receiving $1 toilet paper on our truck shipments. An older woman asks me to help her find the cheapest toilet paper left.)

Me: “Right now, this is the cheapest we have.” *holds up a pack of $2 toilet paper*

Customer: “Two dollars?!”

Me: “I apologize. We just haven’t gotten any more in for a while.”

Customer: *glares at me* “Whatever. Just show me where you all have napkins.”

(I lead her to the napkins, and then go up to the register so I can send the cashier on break. A few minutes later, the customer appears at my register.)

Customer: “Look at this! You all are robbing the poor blind! Two dollars for toilet paper is absolutely ridiculous! Who would pay that?! Look what I have to use!” *holds up the napkins* “I hope you all go out of business!”

(She pays with change, though she has a $5 bill in her hands. She continues ranting at me, saying it’s all my fault. I just stay silent, as I’m not sure what I’m supposed to say. She then storms out the door and I wish her a good day. I then watch her walk across the street to the drive-thru tobacco shop.)

Me: “I hope her toilet clogs up.”
