We Want To Be Here Even Less Because Of You

, , , | Right | June 9, 2019

(This is one that actually happened to my coworker, but I love it too much to not tell.)

Coworker: “Hi, ma’am. How can I help you today?”

Customer: *glares at him*

Coworker: “Can I help you?”

Customer: *sneers and continues to glare*

Coworker: “Are you… buying something?”

Customer: *places a vase on the counter* “Well, OBVIOUSLY.” *continues to glare at him*

Coworker: “Okay, well…”

Customer: “I don’t even want to be here! I just had surgery; I can’t believe you guys made me stand in line for so long! The doctor said I shouldn’t even be out of bed right now!”

(My coworker decides to disregard questioning why she is even here, then, and goes on professionally.)

Coworker: “Well, I apologize; we’re a bit busy because of the holidays. But I can ring you up quick!”

Customer: *throws her card at him*

Coworker: *irritated now* “Was… was that really necessary?”

Customer: *going red* “You’re being incredibly rude right now!”

Coworker: “I’m sorry, I’m being rude?”

Customer: “YEAH! YOU ARE! I DON’T EVEN WANT TO BE HERE! I DON’T EVEN WANT TO BUY THIS, YOU IDIOT!”

Coworker: *nods, grabs her vase* “All right, go home, then.” *walks away with the vase*

(She went away cursing, and our manager got a call from her later saying how he told her to go home, and she wanted him fired. After hearing his side of the story, though, it’s safe to say his job is safe. We’ve been laughing about what he did ever since.)
