Customers Bring Spill-Tidings

, , , | Right | May 29, 2018

(The store that I work in sells giant fountain drinks. I’m walking down a narrow aisle, putting things away, when I come across a big puddle of soda. I stand right in front of the puddle to guard it and call someone to bring paper towel, as I’m required to. As I do so, someone tries to shove their cart by me. I turn around to see a man scowling at me.)

Man: “Excuse me!”

Me: *caught off-guard by his rudeness* “Uh… I can’t move from here.”

(The man gives me an incredulous look.)

Me: “I’m guarding this spill.”

(The spill behind me is an entire large drink, and is very obvious.)

Man: “Well, I guess I’ll just go around you.”

(He then shoved his cart forward, effectively pushing me to the side and driving his cart right through the spill, with his family behind him, creating a trail of soda down the aisle and around the way, all instead of just going a few steps back the other direction. His little kid at least had the decency to look embarrassed.)
