From Rihannaisaturkey, Tales From Retail:
At my job, if I'm not doing stock I'm cleaning the store. I've been doing this since November so I've gotten used to the fact that even if I'm standing right there, customers will still proceed to just drop the stuff they don't want on the floor.
Well yesterday I was cleaning up the infants section. I saw this man in the infants section holding like 5 men's shirts and a baby blanket.
I finished cleaning the infants section so I went to the men's section. Then I saw that same guy come all the way from the infants section back to the men's section.
We have like 9 different racks for different types of clothes. I've seen 3 different ways people put stuff back.
Most lazy: drop them on the floor
less lazy: hang the shirt over a random clothes rack
even less lazy: put the shirt back on a random clothes rack, but not according to size(large shirt in medium section etc.)
When I saw him come back I figured he was going to hang his shirts over a random clothes rack.
Well he didn't. He went to the right rack and he hung the shirts upaccording to size
This guy came from the infants section all the way to men's, hung his shirts back up on the right clothes rack and even hung them up in the right size sections. I've never seen someone do that before. If someone was in an entirely different section they'd just leave their clothes there. Half of the time I clean infants, most of the mess is women's clothing. No one would ever be bothered to walk to an entirely different section to put their stuff back.
I had to talk to him about it and tell him he literally made my day with that. I work at a retail chain so I asked him if he worked at another location and he said no but he worked retail like 7 years ago so it stuck with him.
