I Have No Power To Help You

(A customer with a charger comes up to me on till and asks where she can find an outlet.)

Me: “Oh, well, there’s one over—”

Manager: *not looking up from clipboard* “Sorry, we don’t have any.”

Customer: “I don’t want to charge it behind the cash; I just need an outlet, anywhere.”

Manager: *still not looking up* “Sorry, we have none.”

(The customer huffs and walks away.)

Me: “Did we really have to do that?”

Manager: “Give them an inch, they take a mile.”

(This same manager also doesn’t allow lost children to use our store phone to call their parents. She makes one of our associates take them to guest service.)
