Employees Do Their Jobs Best When You Don’t Let Them Die

, , , | Healthy Working | May 13, 2022

I work with a manager who has alienated everyone we work with because of a medical emergency I had. We got so slammed one morning that we were still trying to catch up at noon when my relief manager came in. My friend was working on breakfast dishes. I was trying to clean the egg grill when I got dizzy all of a sudden and passed out.

From what I was told, [Friend] saw me and ran right over, got on the ground, and held me up so he could check my pulse and make sure that I was breathing and that I wasn’t bleeding from the head. Someone alerted my manager, who had my cashier call 911 while he walked around aimlessly.

[Friend] started giving the cashier my medical history.

Manager: “[Cashier], get off the phone and get back to work!”

My friend took the phone from her so she could do that, and he took over giving dispatch information while still holding on to me. Thirty seconds later:

Manager: “[Friend], leave her and get back to work.”

Friend: “No way! I’m not leaving her until the paramedics get here”

Finally, I woke up and tried to sit up by myself, but [Friend] had one hand on my back in case I fell.

The paramedics came in and checked me over. They told [Friend] it was a good thing he had stayed with me; my heart rate was so high that I could have gone into cardiac arrest.

Manager: “Good thing I told you to stay with her, [Friend]!”

Everyone denied this. Later, [Friend] told our General Manager everything that happened.

Sadly, the idiot still has a job.

Empathy Is Collapsing

Due to working too many shifts over multiple jobs, one of my coworkers actually passes out as they’re coming back from bringing food out to a customer.

I see the customer run up to the coworker on the floor and get down near them, and just as I think they’re about to help them, they say:

Customer: “You forgot my daughter’s Coke!”

Should’ve Stuck With Donuts

I worked at a donut shop on midnight shifts. One night, I had a drunk couple come in. They both ordered chili and went to sit in the corner. About ten minutes later, the man came up to the counter.

Man: “My wife is sick.”

I walked over to the table and the woman was sitting there with this stupid grin on her face. She had thrown up her chili and it was all over her, the table, and the floor.

I went and grabbed a roll of paper towels, handed it to the man, and told him:

Me: “She’s your wife; you clean it up.”

That was hands down one of the most disgusting nights of my life.

Their Common Sense Is Inaccessible

I am a volunteer in a performing arts theater. We have plays, musicals, music artists, etc.

Like most venues, we have certain disabled spots where chairs have been removed so that they have wheelchair access and no stairs, and they’re set up so that people are able to see the show without any difficulties.

For most other seats, you need to walk up or down stairs to get to or need to walk through the aisle to get to a seat if it’s two to forty seats into the row. Logical, right?

Example #1:

A person buys a ticket for the front row center but they are in a wheelchair and can’t understand why we can’t take out non-removable seats five minutes before the show starts as they are unable to get out of their wheelchair and didn’t tell the ticket office they can’t walk.

Example #2:

A person buys their teenagers tickets to their favorite singer and gets them seats at the center of the theater, up two flights of stairs. The youngest child is in a large motorized wheelchair, and the siblings don’t know what to do as the parents dropped them off so they can have a date night.

Example #3:

A person in a walker buys the cheapest ticket in the theater near the back, up three flights of stairs, or up the elevator and down two flights of stairs, and doesn’t understand why the elevator doesn’t go to their exact seat, which is also not wheelchair accessible.

In all three of these situations, we were able to work it out, but not before a lot of confusion and three unhappy groups as they ended up in the accessible area in the back of the house as the front was already sold out.

On our website, and at the ticket office, both in person and by phone, once you say “wheelchair,” “hard of hearing,” “sight-impaired,” “ADA,” or any type of keyword, they bend over backward to give you the same great show that everyone else has. All of the above “didn’t think it mattered.”

So, please, if you or a family member have a permanent disability or a temporary one, i.e., you broke your leg after you purchased tickets, or your grandparent had a stroke and now needs a wheelchair, CALL THE TICKET OFFICE and let them try to help you.

A Whole New Level Of Skin Peel

I’m working at a store that sells things like vitamins, supplements, and sports nutrition. We also have a whole section dedicated to beauty supplements and weight loss products.

Customer: “My wife sent me in to buy hydrochloric acid.”

Me: “Hydrochloric acid? You’re sure?”

Customer: “I’m sure, that’s what she said.”

Me: “Did she mean hyaluronic acid?”

Hyaluronic acid is a supplement that is supposed to increase skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles, and so on. I point out all the various hyaluronic acid beauty products we carry.

Customer: “No, I know she said hydrochloric acid. If you don’t sell it here, where can I get it?”

Me: “Sir, I’m afraid I don’t really know where you’d be able to buy hydrochloric acid! It’s a dangerous chemical. I’m fairly certain your wife wants hyaluronic acid.”

Customer: “Well, if you’re not going to help, I’ll just have to buy it somewhere else.”
