My boss was shadowing me at the register on my first day, and things were going okay but I was pretty nervous with her watching over my shoulder. Midway through my shift a customer comes up and recognises me from my previous job. I can’t remember her for the life of me, so I have no idea if our previous interaction(s) had been good, bad, or unmemorable. Lucky me, though, because she launches into a whole speech about how amazing I am! Right in front of my boss! I wanted to reach across the counter and hug her, she completely made my day /and/ gave my new boss an incredible first impression of me. She’s a regular now, calls me “hun” and is always so kind. She’ll forever be my favourite customer.
