This Should Have Been A Piece Of Cake

, , , , , | Right | October 26, 2018

(I work in the bakery of a grocery store. A woman comes up to the counter at about 9:40 pm to place a cake order. This shouldn’t be a problem, even though we close at ten. I take the order with no issue, but it requires a deposit; also something that shouldn’t be a problem.)

Me: “Ma’am, this needs a deposit, so would you mind coming to the front now so you can pay it?”

(She agrees, and we go to the registers.)

Customer: “Oh, wait, I still need a few things, so I’ll be back in a moment to pay for that.”

(Because I need to make sure the cashier gives me a copy of the receipt, this leaves me sitting there. The woman doesn’t come back until after the manager has made the announcement it’s time for the store to close, and then there are three people in line in front of her.)

Customer: “Oh, I didn’t realize you would have to wait for me.”

Me: *later, to coworker* “Why the h*** did she think I personally escorted her up there?”
