Seeing The Funny Side Of The Complaint

| Right | February 13, 2015

(I am the assistant manager at a video rental store in a very small town. Most of the people who work here are friends outside the job. The store manager calls me and another girl into his office because there has been a complaint from a customer. He has to work really hard keeping a straight face while he tells us:)

Manager: “A lady has complained that you were smiling too much while you worked. I made her repeat herself twice because I couldn’t figure out what her complaint was. She got mad and said ‘your employees enjoy their jobs too much; work shouldn’t be fun!'”

(Since it was such a small town, it wasn’t very hard to figure out who the sour puss was and we made sure to put on our super serious faces whenever she came in. I’m not sure how effective it was since we’d always dissolve into fits of giggles whenever she wasn’t looking.)
