Newborn Into Service

, | Working | March 10, 2015

(Today I’m working with two female coworkers; I’m also female. During a quiet part of the day, one of our managers comes in with her newborn. None of us have seen her since she went on maternity leave a month ago, so we’re all thrilled to see her and her son. My coworkers are so busy cooing over the child that they don’t notice a customer standing quietly at the counter. I go to serve her.)

Me: “How can I help you?”

Customer: “What are they doing over there?”

Me: “Our manager is here with her newborn. Really, you’re lucky you’re getting served at all!”

(The customer laughed before wandering over to join the group. She did eventually get her items, when they all resurfaced ten minutes later!)
