Compassion Also Died That Week

, , , , , | Working | November 29, 2017

My mother-in-law passed away during the week. I went to work the day after but was in too much of a mess to stay. I arranged someone to take over for me, did all the tasks that I knew she couldn’t do, and sent emails to my line manager to explain my situation before heading home. The next day was my rostered day off.

When I got home I noticed a huge bouquet of flowers on the table and realised that [Husband]’s work had sent them to him.

What did I get? A message from my line manager at 8:35 am the next day, demanding to know why the store was closed. We don’t open until 9 am, and the opening staff was already inside the store.

Question of the Week

Tell us about a customer that lied or scammed to get what they wanted.

I have a story to share!
