On The Need For Hazard Pay, Part 24

, , , | Right | March 17, 2021


The thrift store where I work has a large warehouse attached, with a garage door that is opened at all times. The first thing you see when approaching the building is the garage door, but the entrance is a bit further up ahead. It makes many people think that they can enter the store through the warehouse, and we mostly politely send them in the right direction if they do.

A woman in her twenties comes wandering into the warehouse.

Coworker: “Excuse me, this is the warehouse, not the store. Would you please go back outside and walk around to the entrance?”

Out of nowhere, she starts flipping tables and shoves stuff off the racks.

Customer: “You w****! Don’t tell me what to do! Stupid b****!”

She starts attacking and hitting my coworker, an older lady, in the face! Another coworker, also a senior lady, rushes over to help. She also takes a pounding, but they manage to drag the frantic woman outside, who is still kicking, hitting, and screaming.

The next day I come to work, I hear the story and I call over my coworker:

Me: “[Coworker], I heard you got beat up yesterday? Must have been scary!”

To my surprise, she giggles.

Coworker: “Yeah, I guess she was some druggie or something. Her pupils were huge! She managed to snap my glasses right in two! But hey, can’t say this job is dull now, can I?”
