Employees Are People, Too

, , , | Right | February 27, 2021

I work in a stand in a mall. The top shelves of the stand have glass covers and are where most of our product is laid out. I spill a glass of water on the floor whilst serving a customer, so when they buy their items and leave, I run to the restroom to get some paper towels. We don’t have our own restroom; we use the public ones.

When I come back, I have three groups of people around the stand waiting for me, which is normal. What isn’t normal is that one couple has decided they couldn’t wait for me to come back, so they opened the shelf themselves and checked out the products.

I am shocked and just stare at them as I go behind the stand.

Customer: *Annoyed* “Oh, so it’s rude that we took a look around ourselves?”

Me: *Deadpan* “Kind of, yes.”

Customer: *Still annoyed* “But you not being at your workplace isn’t rude?”

Me: *Deadpan* “No. Am I not allowed to use the restroom?”

She gasped and mumbled something under her breath as they walked away. Honestly, the nerve of some people.
