Not So Five-Alive

, , , , | Working | March 20, 2018

(My work is hiring for both grocery and cashier positions. It is eight pm, and I’m working on the floor in grocery. A man in his twenties approaches me, carrying a resume. I’m a woman, also in my twenties.)

Job Seeker: “I need to see your manager.”

Me: “We have a manager-on-duty at the moment.”

Job Seeker: *gets a little snippy* “Are you saying he can’t see me?! Why isn’t he here?”

Me: “He was here before five am. He is probably sleeping right now, because he’ll be back here tomorrow at five am, again!”

Job Seeker: *looking a little ashamed* “Oh, I have a resume to hand in.”

Me: “If you go up to customer service, they will give you an application to fill out and attach to it. You can leave both with them.”

(He ran off without another word.)
