Some Situations Just Require A Call For Backup!

I used to work in a big box store, and there was a woman around my age who worked in cosmetics. She was very nice, but she would frequently page people for help with even the smallest tasks.

One evening, I was sitting in the break room with a few people from around the store, including the guy who was on “store standards” (cleaning, carry-outs, cart retrieval, etc.) that shift. The girl from cosmetics started paging him. He ignored it because he was on his break, but she persisted. She finally called the break room to talk to him.

Coworker: “I need a spider removal!”

Our store had recently gotten those “spider” locks for expensive items that require a special key to open, so he assumed it was that and went to go deal with it. He came back several minutes later, laughing.

Store Standards Guy: “[Coworker] didn’t need a spider lock removed. There was a spider crawling across the cosmetics desk, and she panicked and wanted someone to remove it for her.”
