Thank You For Coming In But Not Really

, , , , , | Right | April 6, 2015

(Our store, unlike our competitors, is open every day but Christmas. It is Thanksgiving. I’m the bagger.)

Customer: “What are you doing open on Thanksgiving?”

Me: “Well, this store stays open for normal hours every day but Christmas.”

Customer: “That’s not good; you should be with your family.”

(We have been keeping track of how many people say this, something that frustrates us as we would LOVE to be home.)

Me: “Well, as long as it is profitable to be open today, the store is open.”

Customer: “That’s too bad; its a shame they make you work today.”

Me: *to the cashier, after customer leaves* “I think my comment about the profitable was too subtle. Don’t these people realize we are only open because they come to buy things?”

(That day we counted around 200 people saying it was a shame we were working on Thanksgiving.)
