Staying Late For Their Baggage

| Working | April 6, 2014

(We have a sale on just after Christmas. All stock is 40% off but IT gets it wrong and discount items even more. Coworkers go mad after closing to buy stuff.)

Coworker #1: “Hey, [My Name], what do you think of this handbag?”

Me: “Um, it’s ugly.”

Coworker #1: “But I really want to buy a bag when they are so discounted!”

(Coworker #2 walks up.)

Coworker #1: “Hey, [Coworker #2], what do you think of this bag?”

Coworker #2: “It’s ugly.”

Coworker #1: “Yeah, I know it’s ugly, but the lining fabric inside is really nice, and I will be looking inside it more often than looking at the outside. And they are only $11.99!”

Coworker #2: “REALLY?” *dives into the bags to choose several ugly handbags for herself*

(Both coworkers turn to me and tell me I need to get some for myself. Both also state their husbands are going to kill them for buying so much. Coworker #2 asks Coworker #1 to pay for hers so her husband won’t find out. They keep me back 45 minutes because I am the only one who can serve them. The next morning, it’s my job to tidy the mess they made on the handbag table.)

Me: *next to Coworker #1* “Hey, look! I found a bag I almost like”.
