Ladders And Tall Guys And Bears, Oh My

| Working | September 27, 2013

(The employee helping me is quite tall.)

Me: “Could you get me these shoes in a size 10 from those shelves up there?”

Employee: “Yeah, no problem. Stand back a bit; I don’t want any boxes to fall on you.”

Me: “Okay…?” *steps back*

(The employee grabs the bottom box in a stack of 8 or 10 and attempts to balance the entire stack while getting them down. They fall with a loud crash. The manager sticks her head into the aisle and sees us picking shoes up.)

Manager: “What just happened?”

Me: “There was a bear.”

Employee: “A big ol’ grizzly.”

Me: “He’s gone now.”

Manager: *sighs* “Just get the ladder next time.”

Employee: *sing song voice* “Somebody’s getting a discount on their shoes!”
