It’s Beginning To Smell A Lot Like Christmas

, , , , | Right | December 24, 2020

I am cleaning the store on Christmas Eve and the two managers are running around trying to figure out where a burning smell is coming from. They find a guy burning the incense we sell in the store. I don’t know what they say to him when they find him, but the bell rings and I hop on a register to manage the line.

A guy and his girlfriend come through my line with over an $80 total and the manager tells me to ring them up for an extra stick of incense, which is only 20 cents. The guy gets angry, yelling, “I’m not spending another dime! If I wanna light things on fire in the store, that’s my prerogative!”

My manager has to explain that since he used up the stick of incense he has to pay for it, just like people who eat candy in the store still have to pay for it. Their total comes to over $80 and his girlfriend, who looks super embarrassed already, is $10 short and he makes her start going through their bag looking for stuff to take out. She looks like she is about to cry before he finally gives her the $10. As they are leaving, he threatens to go back to shopping at a competitor, to which my manager’s response is, “Good!”
