You’re Not Going Crackers

, , , | Right | January 15, 2019

(I’m in a grocery store to pick up some empty boxes and grab a few ingredients for dinner while I’m there. While I used to work for the company, I left over a year ago and never worked at this particular location. I’m dressed in a black sweatshirt with a large event logo that looks nothing like the store’s logo.)

Customer #1: *pointing to wrapped cucumbers* “Excuse me. These are cucumbers, right?”

Me: *picking one up for my own purchases* “Yep, they’re the regular ones, for $1.69.”

Customer #1: “Thank you!” *he looks over at me* “Oh! I’m sorry, I thought you worked here.”

Me: “That’s okay, I used to. Glad I could help.”

(I continue through the store and end up in another aisle looking around for a smaller item. A lady approaches me while I was looking.)

Customer #2: “Excuse me, could you recommend me some crackers? Oh, I’m so sorry. I thought you worked here!”

Me: *laughing* “No, but I used to. Tell you what. I was always good with pairings, and I need to get some crackers myself. I’ll take you over there and help you find some.”

Customer #2: “Oh, thank you so much!”
