Around 6:00 tonight our store got a phone call, I answered and a lady asked "What time do you close tonight?" Just as a disclaimer, I almost never work on Sundays, today was an exception, and like a lot of other retail places, we have shorter hours on Sunday. I mistakenly told her "7:30" when we actually closed at 7:00, as I was unfamiliar with the hours.
7:00 rolls around and we close, we keep the doors open and let the last few customers finish up and go out, but keep a manager at the door to let people who try to enter know we are closed. I'm working as a cashier while the closing manager is up front. I finish up with the last person and start getting to work doing other duties when I happen to pass my manager in the store. She said something along the lines of "Say, did you happen to tell someone we closed at 7:30 tonight?" after she said that I realized we closed at 7:00 and said sorry, but it was not a big deal. I didn't think anything of it.
Minutes later the phone rings and it's the same lady from earlier. She proceeds to tell me I 'better be fuckin sorry" and that she would be "calling corporate" since I messed up the close time and that I "cost the store big time."
Because get this...
She wasn't coming in to buy 17 pairs of jeans...
She wasn't coming in to buy 170 pairs of jeans...
She was coming in to buy 1700 pairs of jeans.
I know what you're thinking, maybe I misheard her. Nope, she was perfectly clear about the number 1700. She screamed it at me several times. I obviously doubt this, but it's funny she thought this would pass as legitimate anyway.
The funniest part of all of this is that she showed up at 7:35. Even if we did close at 7:30, she would of been turned away anyway.
