Her Happy Place Is Box-Shaped

, , , | Right | September 15, 2021

While I am helping make food with my coworkers, I notice a woman standing by the front counter, holding about ten flat and empty meal boxes that another coworker probably gave her. I walk up to her and ask her if she needs anything.

Customer: “I need box.”

She points to a box of stored supplies.

Me: “You need a bigger box?”

I reach for our largest meal box.

Customer: “No, no, I need box.”

She points to the same box full of supplies.

Me: “I can’t give you that box.”

Customer: “I need box.”

Me: “We’ve already broken down and tossed all of our empty storage boxes. I’m sorry we don’t have anything to give you.”

Customer: “Oh.” *Continues waiting*

As I walked back to help make food, I brainstormed if there was anything I could do. Suddenly, I noticed that we were low on napkins and that we could easily empty a napkin box. I showed the woman the napkin box and she said, “YES!” I quickly emptied it and gave the box to her. She left happy and I remained confused.
