I was doing shopping at my local mall and decided to use the bathroom at the Macy's I used to work at. After doing my business, I went to exit when I passed a couple of old workers and friends on the sales floor and started chatting with them. As we were making small talk, one of the newer department managers breezed past me and got in the middle of our conversation.
DM: You seem really friendly.
Ex-Coworker: He use to work here.
DM: *sizes me up* Oh really? You know the holidays are coming up. Would you like reapply to Macy's?
Me: *politely* No thank you. I already have a job.
DM walks away and in my head I'm thinking, HELL NO! I wouldn't work for Macy's if my life depended on it. After dealing with all their corporate B.S. for almost five years, no way would I come crawling back there! Now come to find out that they're taking away their employees' holidays by making them work Thanksgiving Day? Absolutely not! I'd rather boink Kim Kardashian's diseased hoohah than work for the Big Red Star! MACY'S CAN SUCK IT!
