Note: my mom is known to be a little scatterbrained on occasion.

I run into my mom at the grocery store, and we shop together for a while. She then begins to wander, claiming that she’s just following me, even though I’m walking behind her. Later, when she jabbed, she parks in a no-parking area, presumably to look for something in her car.

Me, driving by: “That’s not a parking spot!”

A few minutes later, I see a car backing up into traffic a few lanes over. I realize it’s my mom.

Me: “That’s illegal!”

Italy | Unfiltered | September 30, 2015

(When I was in 8th grade, my school offered a week-long trip from the United States to Italy and Greece. Our first full day on the tour buses, everyone gets handed out a weird sack breakfast to eat when we stop at what we were told was a rest stop. Our guide leads us into a building that has a lot of chairs and tables, not unlike our school’s cafeteria, and then disappears. Suddenly, a large angry man begins shouting at our teachers.)

Angry Man: *mostly shouting in Italian* NO! YOU GO! NO NO NO!

(Our guide came running back in, and after a quieter conversation, told us we all needed to get back on the buses immediately and eat there. Turns out, we had been lead into a closed restaurant; the owner had just arrived and forgot to lock the door behind him. The whole rest of the tour was plagued with bad scheduling and logistics: the company expected restaurants to be able to seat all hundred of us without any warning, and for four buses of students, teachers, and parents to be able to all use the same pair of one-seater gas station bathrooms in 10 minutes. Explains why the whole thing was so “affordable”!)

This happened when I was the only cashier on duty, on an evening shift. The store was full of customers.

Customer: I need a roll of quarters.

Me: Sure, just give me a second to pull it from the safe.

I exchange the cash and hand her the roll of quarters. She then asks me to ring up some spray cleaner.

She walks away and I start to serve the next customer. Suddenly she flies back to me, screaming at the top of her lungs.

Customer: You didn’t give me my roll of quarters! I gave you a ten dollar bill and you didn’t give me my quarters! That’s theft! You stupid f—ing b— can’t even exchange money! What the f— is wrong with you!!!

Me: I’m so sorry, maam, but I can’t access the safe without a deposit. I can have my manager count it at the end of the shift and call you…..

Customer: GIVE ME MY MONEY NOW! I WILL COME IN HERE AND SHOOT THIS PLACE UP! GIVE ME MY G–D— MONEY!!!

Me: Get out of my store or I am calling the police. NOW.

She leaves and about ten minutes later I see her pull up outside the store but she doesn’t come in. I call the police.

She got out of the car and just as she tried to enter the building, the cops showed up and stopped her. She started fighting them and screaming, scratching them with her nails and kicking.

I relay the story to one officer while she continues to shriek at me for “stealing her f—ing money.”

Finally my manager comes in and we count the safe – and it isn’t over $10. All of that nonsense and felonious assault on an officer, for a scam!!

Time for another tale in the series, “Bush League Lumber”…

Recently, 2 more yard employees have quit and not been replaced (not an uncommon thing here). Then our yard foreman’s second-in-command went on leave for a week, unexpectedly. As we are nearing inventory, the yard needs to be cleaned up and organized, so the owner decided that we would get a temporary worker from the unemployment office (EI).

EI set someone up for Saturday to come in, but on Friday, that person apparently mentioned to a friend of his that there was no way he was cleaning up a lumberyard and wasn’t going to show up.

His friend then showed up in his place and explained to the foreman that his friend wasn’t coming, but he could use some money if we wanted him to clean up the yard for the day.

He was immediately hired and was sent out of town on drywall and shingle deliveries within an hour of walking into the yard.

No interview with store management.

No background check.

No training.

No paperwork signed.

Instantly delivering thousands of dollars worth of material into brand new homes in a company vehicle.

This is a monthly, if not weekly occurrence here…
