I Come Fully Armed

| Working | April 20, 2016

(My coworker only has the use of one arm because of a disability, but she is just as capable and competent as anyone else in the store, even if it does take her a little longer to do certain tasks. She is working our only till when a family asks for all of their items to be gift wrapped, and a queue quickly forms since she has to do both at once. Knowing it will be faster if we split the work, I jump in:)

Me: “Hey, [Coworker], I can wrap those while you work the till.”

Coworker: *defensively and loud enough for the customers to hear* “What? No! I can do it on my own. Go watch people or something.”

(I gave the seven lined up customers a sympathetic “well, I tried” look and they rather sadly watched me fold clothes for the next twenty minutes.)

Question of the Week

What is the absolute most stupid thing you’ve heard a customer say?

I have a story to share!
