It’s The Most Wonderful Time To Quit

, , , , | Right | December 23, 2018

(A few days before Christmas, I’m put on the register at the start of my shift. Several coworkers have called out, claiming that either they or their children are sick, so my manager and I are the only ones available to work registers. Because of the holiday rush, the line quickly builds across the entire store.)

Customer: “We waited in line for 45 minutes! Can’t you open up more registers? You have at least nine of them!”

Me: “Sorry, ma’am, but six of my coworkers called out today. My manager and I are pretty much the only ones here.”

Customer: *snootily* “Well, you should have hired more people.”

(Thanks for the hindsight. If it matters, both the manager and I quit within the month.)
