Women's Retail Slave here with a WTF moment with people and their baggage. Get over it already.
So, I was working the other day, greeting and selling just like the little awesome person I am, when one of my coworkers comes up and said "that lady over there HATES you."
I scanned the store, and wondered who could it be. Everyone was nice, actually said "HI" back when I greeted them, and listened to my little speech about the current sale, all without any issue. Apparently my coworker went up to her to ask her if she needed help, and the crusty said that she was fine, but that she had an issue with someone who works here.
My awesome associate remained professional and asked if there was anything she could do or if she could bubble it up to the manager, and crusty responded that it was ME, the manager, that she had issue with.
Crusty told my associate that 8 YEARS ago! 8!!! that apparently I was the meanest, rudest thing on Earth, and that she cancelled her card with us and stopped shopping with us all because of how horrible I was. She also said that for years she has been campaigning to get me fired from the company and is shocked that I still worked for the company.
So, here I am with mixed feelings of guilt and sadness along with shock and awe.
2ndly 8 YEARS?!?! move on with your life. You're still shopping here so I must not have done something so horrible that you still want to spend money here.
3rdly I would love to know exactly what I did and offer you a sincere apology, otherwise move on.
4thly, I never heard anything about it from higher ups or headquarters, so you either didn't call or our offices thought it wasn't as extreme as you weave your story to be.
The whole thing had me almost in tears, but at the same time, I'm still here, and I still am going great. Luckily I have a few days off, and have a change to cooldown, and clear my head.
What do you guys think about the whole situation? Should I be worried? Should I get over it? All thoughts appreciated THANKS!
