Not Realizing She Is “Receiving” Life-Saving Service

, , , , | Right | December 16, 2020

Our storefront is right up on the street, which means that the receiving bay our delivery trucks pull up to is on the same side of the building as where the customers park, just to the right of our parking entrance. A truck is backing up to our receiving bay door when one of our grumpy regulars appears. 

Customer: “What is this truck doing here?! It’s in my way!”

Our receiving manager comes over, waving her away.

Manager: “We’re getting a delivery. Just wait a moment and then walk around after the truck stops moving.”

Customer: “So it’s about to move?”

Manager: “Yes, but he’s not leaving; he’s about to back up and block this path off. You’ll have to walk around the front of the truck to get to the other side where the entrance is. Sorry.”

Customer: “But how am I supposed to get in with this in the way?!”

The manager repeats the instructions, pointing.

Manager: “You’ll have to loop around the front, but just wait a moment and— OH, MY GOD, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!”

The lady got impatient and decided to cut BETWEEN the truck and the receiving bay as it was backing up with the ramp descending. She came from the right side, so the driver can’t see her. Our receiving manager leaps from the bay, waving his arms and screaming for the driver to stop. 

The old lady continues towards the entrance, squawking about how inconvenient and rude young people are, completely oblivious to how she almost got cut in half.
