Doesn’t Take Much To Weed Out The Bad Ones, Part 2

| Sellersville, PA, USA | Working | August 3, 2012

(I usually come in Sunday nights at the convenience store for a few hours to prepare for Monday morning. I bake cookies, muffins, and pull croissants for the breakfast sandwiches. I’ve had a tooth pulled, so these duties fall onto my coworkers while I recover. I come in Monday morning to find none of it done—not even their normal duties—and the dish drainer is full. This leads to me and my other shift working scrambling to do their job before we open on top of our normal duties. This exchange takes place at the end of my shift, when they come in.)

Me: *to the evening coworkers* “You guys didn’t do anything last night. We almost ended up not having breakfast sandwiches for this morning!”

Morning Coworker: “Yeah, you guys are lucky that my husband drops me off an hour early on his way to work!”

Me: “The dish drainer was full, but none of the baking was done. What did you guys do all evening?”

Evening Coworker #1: “We didn’t feel like it. I don’t see why I had to do your job on top of my own!”

Me: “You didn’t even do your job! What did you guys do all evening?”

Evening Coworker #2: “Our friend came over to the store with a fresh ounce of weed and we made pot brownies! They were freaking awesome!”

Morning Coworker: “You made pot brownies in the store where your boss lives in the apartment above… where the sign on the door says we’re a cop stop… and the police sergeant stops for his coffee and cigarettes almost every day, at unpredictable times??

Evening Coworker #2: “Yeah.”

Morning Coworker: *points to me* “…and you just confessed this to the assistant manager, who happens to be the daughter of the manager?”

Evening Coworker #2: “When you put it that way, you make it sound like it was a stupid idea!”

(The boss wasn’t very pleased when he found out about what had happened. One of them was busted for possession a week after they were fired.)

Our Great DiscrimiNation

| Missouri, USA | Working | August 3, 2012

(My coworker and I usually work the registers together. A group of customers come in speaking a foreign language. My coworker waits until they are out of ear shot and then starts talking about them.)

Coworker #1: “If they’re going to come to this country, they can at least learn the language.”

Me: “You don’t know they don’t speak English. Just because they’re not speaking it now doesn’t mean they don’t speak it at all.”

Coworker #1: “I’m so tired of illegal Mexicans coming here and thinking they’re allowed to speak Spanish any time they want. It’s stupid. They need to learn our native language.”

(Another coworker has overheard the conversation and speaks up.)

Coworker #2: *sarcastically* “Yeah, they should speak Cherokee.”

Coworker #1: *shuts up*

(As for the “illegal Mexicans”, they were on vacation from Italy.)

I’m Not The One Having A Cow

| New York, USA | Working | August 2, 2012

(I’m paying for a purchase with a credit card. The cashier looks at my name on the card as she hands it back. She says my first name correctly, but not my middle name.)

Cashier: “Now that’s a pretty name.”

Me: “Uh, yes it is. That’s not my name, though.”

Cashier: *surprised* “Well, what’s your name?!”

Me: “My middle name is [name].” *opens my wallet to put my card away*

Cashier: “Why are you showing me your drivers’ license?!” *grabs my wallet* “Let me see it!”

Me: *speechless*

Cashier: “Oh, you’re a Taurus! That means you’re hot-headed! You’re the exact opposite of me. I’m cool-headed. I just let everything go!”

Me: “Okay…” *takes my wallet back*

Cashier: “Hot-headed!”

Me: “Right, well… I’m just gonna go now.”

Cashier: “HOT-HEADED!”
