The Cold Reality Of Working Weekends

I’m serving an elderly female customer at my till. This is during the height of the summer heatwave.

Me: “Is that everything today?”

Customer: “Why is your air-con on so high? It’s so cold outside!”

Me: “It is?”

I turn away from the customer to look out the window at bright sunshine.

Customer: “See?!”

Suddenly, she reaches over the counter, grabs my neck with her hand to show me how “cold” it is, and then just walks away.

Colleague: “Are you okay?”

Me: “I hate Saturdays.”
