Having Several Blonde Moments In A Row

, , , | Right | October 18, 2018

(I’m working in electronics when two older women call me over for help. They appear to be mother and daughter.)

Daughter: “Can you help us with the routers?”

Me: “Yes, of course! What’s the question?”

Mother: “We want to know which one is better. Is that blonde-haired boy working today? He helped us last time.”

Me: “No, I’m sorry. He’s not in today.”

(I help them make their selection.)

Daughter: “Do you know anyone we can call to set this up?”

Me: “I’m sorry. I do not.”

Mother: “What about that blonde-haired boy? Can’t he come to our house and set it up?”

Me: “I don’t think he’s allowed to.”

Daughter: “Well, as long as [Store] doesn’t know, he can.”

Me: “No, I really don’t think he’s allowed to do that.”

Mother: “But it’d be his free time! We’d pay him.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but I really, really think he’s not allowed to.”

(After they left, I texted my “blonde-haired boy” coworker to tell him what happened. He said he definitely wasn’t allowed to go to their house to set it up. That, and he didn’t feel comfortable with it.)
