One Of Retail’s Forever Problems

, , | Right | August 31, 2020

It’s about ten minutes after we’ve closed for the evening when the phone starts to ring continuously. Instead of continuing to listen to it, I decide to answer it.

Me: “Thanks for calling [Shop]. I’m sorry but we’re closed.”

There is a slight pause.

Caller: *Sounding afraid.* “Forever?”

Me: “Um… no. Just for the night. We open tomorrow at eleven.”

Caller: *Cheerfully* “Oh, okay!” *Hangs up*

I nearly laughed my butt off over that and forever after made sure to say that we’re closed for the evening.
