I Don’t Work Here, Does Not Work Here, Part 16

, | FL, USA | Right | September 10, 2014

(I went to check out a sale at a clothing store. While browsing the clothing racks, a lady runs up to and violently grabs my arm and start yelling at me.)

Customer: “About d*** time someone showed up. I’ve been looking for you for ten minutes now!”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Customer: “Don’t give me that! I give you guys a lot of my hard earned money and all I get is crappy service.”

Me: “Um, ma’am, I’m sorry, but I think you—”

Customer: “Now listen here. I don’t have time for this. I’ve got places to be, so just do your d*** job and help me!”

Me: “Ma’am, I don’t work here.”

Customer: “Work, you got that right! You just get paid to sit on your fat a**. If it was up to me you’d be fired!”

(At this point the store manager has heard the commotion and comes over to see what the problem is.)

Manager: “Excuse me, ladies. Is there a problem here?”

(Customer angrily points at me.)

Customer: “Yes, there’s a problem! Your sorry excuse of employees stand around all day while your customers have to suffer!”

(Looking at me, the manager understands what’s going on and is trying to not burst out laughing.)

Manager: “I’m terribly sorry, ma’am, but if you would have asked a store associate for assistance instead of yelling at another customer, perhaps we could have assisted you.”

Customer: “Well, I never!”

(Confused, the lady looks at me and finally realizes I’m not wearing a store uniform or name tag.)

Customer: “Oh, um… Ah, I think I’ll just come back later.”

(Looking extremely embarrassed the lady rushes out of the store without even apologizing.)

Manager: “I’m sorry, miss. Are you all right?”

Me: “I’m really confused but yeah. I guess. Are all your customers like that?”

Manager: “That’s not even the worst of it.”
