Not The Cards You Want At Christmas

, , , , , , | Right | December 23, 2019

(This happens close to Christmas. I come home to find a yellow card from [Delivery Company] taped to my door. It says that an item I ordered is being held at a nearby facility. I drive there right away to pick it up. Because of the time of year, the facility is very busy, and there are several customers ahead of me.)

Customer #1: “I’m here to pick up my item.”

Employee: “Do you have a yellow card from our company indicating that it would be here?”

Customer #1: “Uh, no.”

Employee: “Then it’s not here yet. Wait until you receive the yellow card. Next!”

Customer #2: “My item should be here, but I don’t have that yellow card.”

Employee: “Then it’s not here. Wait until you receive the yellow card. Next!”

Customer #3: “I don’t have that card, either–“

Employee: *growing visibly irritated* “Your item isn’t here until you get that card! NEXT!”

Me: “Hi–“

Employee: “YOUR ITEM ISN’T HERE!“

Me: *holds out card*

Employee: “WAIT UNTIL YOU GET THE CARD! NEXT!”

Me: “But… I do have the card.”

Employee: “What? Oh. One moment, please.”

(She had my sympathy.)
