The Plan Fell Down

, , , , | Right | April 13, 2018

(I work at a small grocery store, and we have a floor machine to clean the floors. Even though the vacuum usually sucks up most of the water, there’s usually a trail of water throughout the store, so we have to put wet floor signs around our produce section after we scrub it. I have been running the floor machine around the store when I pass by an older woman on her phone.)

Customer: *on phone* “These floors are all wet! Someone is going to fall on these wet floors!”

(She continues complaining about the wet floors on her phone. When I get back to the front of the store, she is leaving, and I hear my coworker talking to our store manager.)

Coworker: “That lady just said, ‘If I slip and fall, I own this place.’”

Store Manager: *laughs* “Let her try and sue us. We have awesome lawyers!”

I was ringing up a customer at my register, and I was very focused on what I was doing and didn’t hear my manager at his register saying my name. He had said my name three times already and I hadn’t heard him, so he finally yelled it at me.

Manager: (My name) do you have any tens!?

Me: Oh, my bad, yeah give me a second to finish this transaction and I’ll get them for you.

Customer: Wow. You shouldn’t talk to her that way just because she’s a woman! What, you think you’re better than her just because you’re a man!? Shame on you!

Me: No, it’s really okay. He was just yelling because I didn’t hear him.

Customer: That’s crap, you can’t just treat your employees that way because they’re females!

Manager: Lady, I’m not Donald Trump so don’t give me any of that crap.

Customer: Well she’s in the middle of a transaction!

Manager: So am I, and I need tens!

She stormed out and the customer behind her told my manager that he’s a wonderful person.
