From Morty_Goldman: Who remembers the first time they took their parents to a Japanese restaurant?
Hello! I with a story; one that stuck us all in awe! This is a long one so bear with me! This happened just on Monday
It's another typical day at my retail pharmacy chain, I work the front store portion. It was a newly transferred coworker (who NEVER treats anyone badly and is a pretty cool dude), and my Assistant Store Manager (who is too humble and knows how to really treat someone). Overall, all 3 of us are the dream team when it comes down to customer service. We have a normal customer who comes in every day, and normally can give us a bad time because she wants it her way and her way only. Everyone in the store has had problems with her... besides my ASM and newly transferred coworker. Things start to get interesting. We will call the customer LFH (lady from hell).
LFH: (To ASM) Hello, sir, come over here and help me find this travel clock you guys had hanging on one of these aisles.
ASM: (Though he has to leave for his lunch or else he might get an MPP) Sure thing ma'am.
As he is helping her, I had finished ringing and went to an aisle to help a customer. As I'm walking back to help ring again, she spots me and calls me over.
LFH: Hey, ludwig99, get over here. Help me find this travel clock you guys have.
ASM: I'm still looking for it, ma'am, bear with me.
This threw her into crazy mode.
LFH: YOU CAN SEE I'M TALKING WITH LUDWIG99, THAT WAS RUDE, YOU JERK.
I was in shock and so was he. I signaled him so he can just go to his lunch while I took the brunt of the force and got stuck with her.
As we were looking for it, she spots it.
LFH: Found it!
LFH: You mean I found it, not you!
Me: Yeah...that's what I meant...I'll let the ASM know we found it.
LFH: NO! I FOUND IT! YOU TELL HIM I FOUND IT!
I say okay and go. And this is where it goes onto my coworker.
He had rung her up, very simple and easy transaction, except he over scanned 1 item. She spots it when the transaction is done, goes to him and points out his mistake. CW will be for my coworker.
CW: Oh, I'm sorry about that ma'am, let me do a refund for you.
LFH: No, I don't want a refund!!!
CW: Sooo...what do you want me to do?
LFH: I want to talk to a manager!
CW: Ludwig99 is there is you want to talk to him (My ASM was on lunch and I was acting manager due to me being a head cashier in the store)
LFH: No, I want the manager!
CW: I'm sorry but he's on his lunch, he can't come right now.
LFH: Oh my god! Can't anyone here do their jobs correctly?
CW: Well, what do you want me to do? Do you want a refund or your coupon back?
LFH: Stop asking me that!!!
CW: Well I'm just trying to fix the error on my part, I'm only asking on wha-
CW: Well, my manager will be back soon, if you can let me just help out the next customer in line.
Next customer in line just looks at her and says: He was only asking you a simple question!
She was livid at this point, I've never seen so much rage from an old person.
Bad timing for my ASM, as he had just clocked back from his lunch and shesprings right towards him. She talks to him and I cover for my coworker at this point to go to his lunch.
It's been 25 minutes now, the line has been so consistent I wasn't able to get anything done at this point. People were complaining left and right but I had to tell them the manager is dealing with a complaint while my only cashier has gone to lunch. Thankfully, I was able to keep most of them happy until my coworker came back and took over again.
I'm going to get a drink of water and she spots me.
LFH: YOU HAVE NO IDEA IN HOW MUCH TROUBLE HE IS IN!! HE HAS NO IDEA WHO HE IS DEALING WITH!
I just stare in disbelief on how much trouble this lady is causing over nothing. She goes to our blood pressure monitor, complains to the ASM that it's too high and it's all because of us not being able to do our jobs and that she knows how to do it better than all of us and will gladly show us how to do it and after this she will end up owning the store and all of us and firing every single one of us.
She leaves, and when we close the store we have our laughs and get to finishing the tasks she didn't allow us to get to. We haven't seen her since.
GLENDALE, Ind. – A woman who found herself annoyed in the check out line suddenly had a change of heart when she witnessed the kindness and patience a clerk showed the elderly customer in front of her.
Sarah Owen Bigler shared the experience that cooled her anger in a Facebook post.
Bigler said she was upset at first that the elderly woman in front of her was paying for each item, separately, in change.
But she said as she and her 1-year-old daughter watched the cashier patiently help the woman count the change in her shaking hands, she was no longer angry, she was happy for the lesson in kindness.
“BUT then I watched the young employee with this woman. I watched him help her count her change, ever so tenderly taking it from her shaking hands. I listened to him repeatedly saying “yes, mam” to her. When she asked if she had enough to buy a reusable bag, he told her she did and went two lines over to get one for her and then repackaged her items. Never once did this employee huff, gruff or roll his eyes. He was nothing but patient and kind.”
She said she realized she had not been inconvenienced at all, quite the contrary.
Bigler said she was grateful her daughter Eloise got to witness the valuable lesson.
She then found the manager and told her about the stellar employee, Ishmael.
“After tracking her down and sharing the story with her, we left Target with a cart full of consumable items, but what is more a heart full of gratitude for such an invaluable lesson.”
From alaskaisachillplace: We have a durable medical equipment reuse program at work and I found this while I was inspecting a walker someone had donated to us. Looks like grandma was a partier!
I have a feeling that if I had that much meth on me and it was mine I would want to keep it a secret and not call the police station and have a cop come down and pick it up. It was a rollator,which is a four wheeled walker with a seat and they typically have a bag which has a number of side pouches. I was inspecting it because our cleaning machine notoriously gets clogged with whatever is in the items donated.
I recently began work in a moderately large book retailer, and I've very much enjoyed it so far. Stories like this one occasionally keep it interesting.
Like every store, we have those things standing at the door that detect and prevent theft. I don't know the technical term for them, but hopefully you know what I'm talking about. Those come into play, and will hitherto be referred to as "grey theft things".
So I happen to be standing near the entrance greeting customers, and an older gentleman walks in, and comes up to me right away. I will be M, Older Gentleman will be OG, and my general manager will be GM.
OG: "Are the grey theft things turned on?"
M: Yes, of course.
OG: "You need to turn them off right away. I have a pacemaker, and the electronic signal they send out messes with it."
M: (completely at a loss of how to handle this one) "I'm not sure if it's possible to turn them off, but I'll check with my manager." (I go get my manager, who confirms what I thought; that we can't just shut off the grey theft things. She comes to speak to the OG)
GM: "Hello, you were wondering about the electronic signal from the grey theft things?"
OG: "Yes, you need to turn them off. It can mess up my pacemaker."
GM: "I'm afraid they can't be shut off manually by us, but I can assure you that we've used them for twenty years and have never had a problem with them."
OG: "Maybe not, but I felt a twitch in my pacemaker when I walked through them."
GM: "I have the guarantee of our supplier of grey theft things that there is no chance of their affecting a customer, and I can promise you we would never take that chance."
OG: "Well, I'm not walking through them again. What will you do about it? Is there another exit?"
OG: "Well, I'm not doing that. It's your store, you have a responsibility to protect your customers. You know if anything happens to me because of your store, you'll be hearing from me! You won't be able to stay in business."
GM: "Sir, the only other thing I can offer is to let you through the emergency exit that leads to the back corner of the building, though even I'm not supposed to use that door."
OG: "But it's dark out and I might stumble."
GM: "I'd be happy to walk with you with another employee and a flashlight."
OG: "No, that's too dangerous."
GM: "I'm afraid I can't do much more, sir. Again, we have been using these grey theft things for twenty years and never had an incident. I can call the company that makes them and confirm their safety if you'd like."
She proceeded to call the grey theft thing company, where they confirmed, of course, that there was no safety issue. (As if they'd ever take that chance.) I went back to working the floor after that, so I'm not sure how the rest of the conversation went, but we weren't sued, so I imagine our security devices didn't kill him after all.
