Sign With Smoke Signals

, , , , , | Working | September 19, 2019

I’m the idiot in this one. A last-minute order comes in for delivery and I am the one who takes it to the customer. By the time the order is ready to go, it is past our weekend closing time of 1:00 am. I have been at work since 5:00 pm and am very tired and eager to get back so I can finish my duties and go home. It is also important to note that I have severe anxiety and sometimes use a CBD-filled vape to help calm me on worse days.

The transaction with the customer is uneventful until it comes time for them to sign their credit card receipt. I hand them the receipt, then reach into my pocket and hand them what I think is a pen to sign with. It isn’t until the “pen” is in the customer’s hand that I realize I’ve accidentally given them my vape!

Cue awkward apologies and silence for the rest of the transaction. Luckily, my manager is super chill and laughed at the whole thing when I told him about it, but to this day I have not lived it down.
