Hasn’t Given This A Second Thought

| Working | November 24, 2013

(It’s my second day working for a small shop within a store. As I walk in, my supervisor looks up from some personal work she’s doing on a machine we’re supposed to be selling.)

Supervisor: “Hey [My Name], I’m getting off at five, so you and [Coworker] are going to be closing with her today.”

Me: “Okay, has she closed before? Because I’ve never closed before and I don’t really know what to do.”

Supervisor: “It’s her second day too, but I put my number by the register so you can call me if you need anything.”

Me: “Wait; let me just see if I’m understanding this: you’re putting two people together, both of them on their second day, leaving them alone in the store, and expecting them to close with no experience doing so and with no instruction?”

Supervisor: “Yep!”
