Not Crying Over Unspilled Milk

, , , , | Right | December 21, 2018

(I’ve had a long day, with a lot of people yelling at me for things out of my control. A coworker has come over to cover my break for me, and I am just about to sign off when a man comes up to my register.)

Customer: “Hi. I got this [Milk Brand that the store doesn’t carry] the other day, and it’s the wrong kind. Can I get a refund?”

Me: “We actually don’t carry that brand of milk.”

Customer: “Are you sure? I have the receipt.”

(He pulls out the receipt, which my coworker and I read through. Lo and behold, there is no milk to be found on the receipt.)

Me: “No, there’s no [Brand] milk on here. Sorry about that.”

Customer: “Huh. I don’t know where my head is today. Don’t worry about it. Sorry about holding you up. Have a nice day.”

(He leaves with his milk and I turn to my coworker, both of us dumbfounded at what just took place.)

Me: “Did he actually just not get really angry about that, or was I just imagining it?”

Coworker: “No, that definitely happened.”
