This Is Egg-sactly Why I Do This

, , | Right | September 26, 2021

I used to often get the job of stacking the eggs at my fruit store. I would check the cartons as I put them out so we could contact the company for refunds if there were too many breakages in the delivery. It slowed things down a little, but I figured it was a good business idea. I would also check my customer’s eggs in front of them so they knew they were taking good eggs.

One day, one of my customers came back.

Customer: “All of these eggs are broken!”

The carton had clearly been dropped. I knew their eggs were fine when they left but the manager gave them a refund anyway.

Me: *To my manager* “This is one of the reasons I ‘waste’ time checking the eggs.”

I got told off for talking back.

You Know Him Better Than That

I was working at a store when George Strait, the country singer, came in. My cashier was losing her mind before he even made it to the counter to pay for a service ticket and I had to send the poor girl to wait in the office. I took care of him away from the main registers and he wrote a check.

Me: “To run a check, I’ll need your ID.”

He just looked at me.

Me: “I’m sorry. I know who you are, but I need the driver’s license information to process the check.”

He laughed and it was all good. For the next eight years, my management laughed about the time I ID’d George Strait.

Kind Strangers Make It Worth “Working Here” Even When You Don’t

I was in a liquor store pacing the aisles for a bottle of adult juice. I like dressing in black: shoes, jeans, leather jacket, and mask, all black. All employees in this store were wearing red/maroon jackets. As I was browsing the shelves, this older woman came over to me and asked in a really soft, but still disappointed tone:

Woman: “You don’t work here, do you?”

Me: “I sure don’t, but can I be of any assistance?”

Woman: “I need a bottle of [Brand] and I can’t find it. Getting old is hard; my eyes aren’t as good as they once were.”

Me: “Of course, I’ll help you. That will be my pleasure.”

I had a look and browsed up and down and side to side, but I couldn’t find it.

Woman: “That’s okay. I really wanted it for my son, but they might not have it in stock; it’s kind of expensive and special.”

Me: “Hold on. I’ll ask someone who actually does work here; they might have a look on their computer and check their stock on it.”

I went over to the till and asked the man sitting comfortably on his chair and asked him. He looked it up.

Employee: “Yes, we have one bottle in stock, but that probably isn’t the one you’re looking for; it is an extra special edition and extra expensive.”

Then, he pointed toward where it should sit on the shelf. He couldn’t leave his till, of course, because of customer flow. I went over to where he pointed and grabbed the bottle and showed it to the sweet old lady and told her what I just had been told. She brightened up.

Woman: *Happily* “That’s exactly what I was looking for!”

Me: “It’s [price].”

Woman: *Nodding* “That sounds about right. Thank you so much! I’m sorry for having to bother you.”

Me: “Actually, this made my day! These days, I hardly talk to anyone, and helping someone as nice as you has been a pleasure.”

Then, we went to the till and paid and went our separate ways. I couldn’t see her smile because of her mask, but I’m sure she had one; I sure did.

Keep On Strolling Right Out Of Here

, , , | Right | September 25, 2021

I was checking out an older black lady who brought up a floor model of a baby stroller.

Me: “Unfortunately, due to safety concerns and store policy, we are not able to sell the floor model. We don’t have any more in the store, but it looks like [Nearby Location] has one.”

Customer: *Rudely* “I shouldn’t have to drive somewhere else to get a stroller! You’re just holding this floor model for one of your white friends to buy. My sick dog needs this stroller, you racist! I’m going to post all over social media how racist you are, and you’re going to go viral!”

Me: *Shrugging* “Well, do what you gotta do, but you’re still not getting this stroller.”

She left, and she never came back, thankfully.

The Moral Of The Story: Never Be Helpful In Public

, , , | Right | CREDIT: chaosqueen73 | September 25, 2021

One day at the local store that I shop at often, I run into a lady who politely asks me if I know where something is. I turn around and point her in the right direction. She thanks me and walks away.

I continue my shopping, and another lady who must’ve overheard our conversation comes up to me and asks me where something else is.

Me: “I’m sorry, but I don’t know what that is. It isn’t something I use or buy.”

Lady: “You should know the products in the store you work at!”

Imagine a redheaded woman wearing a skull mask, black pants, and a maroon shirt. I don’t resemble any of the employees at this store.

Me: “Ma’am, in what world would an employer allow me to wear this getup?”

Still pissy with me, she huffs.

Lady: “Well, you helped that other woman.”

Me: “Yes, ma’am, I did. I knew what she was looking for and knew where she could find it. However, I don’t work here, obviously.”
