Won That Closing Argument

| Seattle, WA, USA | Working | July 20, 2017

(I’m a cashier watching the store’s self check-outs. As I’m also sales floor trained, it’s not unusual for me to be pulled to help the sales floor. The store has a second employee with the same name as me, with the same training. At 6:00 pm, the sales floor manager walks over.)

Manager: “Has anyone told you the game plan tonight?”

Me: “No?”

Manager: “We had a call-out, so we can use your help on the floor. Would you mind doing that?”

Me: “Sure! Oh, you are aware I’m off at eight, right?”

Manager: “That’s not what I was told? I was told you’re off at eleven.” *she checks her employee list*

Me: “No, but I did start at 11:30 this morning.” *realization hits* “Wait, are you looking at the right [My Name]?”

(Pause.)

Manager: “No, I’m not.” *slinks away*

(I spent the rest of my shift on the lanes.)
