Not So Closed Minded: Holiday Special

, , , , | Right | December 27, 2017

(It’s the day after Christmas and my boss decided to keep our small dry cleaning store open even though many of our regular customers are on vacation. There are several employees currently working, including myself. Our store lights are on and there are several cars in our parking lot. I am standing in front of the store at the counter waiting to greet and serve customers.)

Me: *greets customer that just walked into the store* “Hello!”

Customer: *walks up to me with a confused expression* “Are you guys open today?”

Me: *hesitating to answer because I’m not sure if he’s joking* “Yes… we are!”

Customer: *looking relieved* “Oh, good! I have a coat in my car that needs cleaning. I’ll go get it!”

(As the customer left to retrieve the coat in his vehicle I looked around me to figure out why he could have possibly thought we were closed. Lights on, several employees busy completing tasks throughout the store, a parking lot with cars in it, and an unlocked door. I just laughed and shook my head before the customer came back in with his coat.)
