Kissing Is All Better

| Working | January 29, 2016

(I work at a large department store famous for its cash back system bearing its company name. We are understaffed and overstressed.)

Me: “Okay, I’m going out to organize the necklaces… again.”

Coworker: “Hey, spread some of that excitement over here, why don’tcha?”

(As I work, I noticed something on the shelf above me. It is a Hershey’s Kiss. I think maybe some little kid had left it, so I take it over to the counter.)

Me: “I found a Hershey’s Kiss over there.”

Coworker: “Lucky you.”

(An hour later, I am sorting jewelry sales on the other side of the department and came across another Hershey’s Kiss. I bring this one up and show it to a fellow employee.)

Coworker #2: “Hey, I found one too, by the customer service desk.”

(A few other people notice and come over.)

Coworker #3: “I found a few as well. They were in the women’s’ department.”

Coworker #4: “That’s so weird; I found three in the shoe section, all sitting on shelves.”

(Our boss approaches us then, holding a few Hershey’s Kisses by the paper.)

Boss: “Hey, anyone care to explain the invasion of Hershey’s Kisses all over the store?”

(He never understood why we all started laughing. We deduced that a generous, sweet-hearted customer had left them anonymously around the store in places we’d see them. We never did figure out who it was, but we were finding them for almost a week. Whoever you were, Hershey person, kisses from everyone at the store! That was the cutest thing ever!)
