Some days you just wish you were somewhere else

So finally the boss is on holiday. Hooray. About time.

Sometimes I am so ashamed of working at that crappy store.

So, ok, that Arabian family tries to get stuff cheaper at times, like those plants a while back. Well, and why not? It’s not as if our plants are the freshest. And the boss can always say no when they ask.
But if foreign people ask, it’s because they’re foreign, and would like to cheat us of our well-earned money. While their money of course is not well-earned at all because they’re all drawing our welfare money anyway. (Hey, stop throwing your rotting garbage at me; I was just quoting.)

Anyway, I’m getting sidetracked.
Those Arabian customers don’t speak German that well, plus, well, people make mistakes. The man meant to say that they had 1.50m of sold by the meter tablecloth. What he actually said was that the cloth was 1.50 Euros. The boss’s wife already started making a scene because of that.
While I took over the till (yeah, ringing up the sold by the meter stuff is d-i-f-f-i-c-u-l-t, so she can’t do it ;) ) she saw that they had already carried 4 garden chairs through without letting ‘em get scanned. Which of course was an attempted theft. After all, it was already clear what kind of people those were, right? The scene she made then made me want to state in a loud clear voice that I just work there and need the money, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
I mean, hello-o! They didn’t grab the chairs and run, they just did what for some bizarre reason tons of people do, which is assume that “large” goods like that don’t need to be scanned, and that it is enough to say at the end “oh, and those 4 chairs, please”.
(Do I have to point out that not only foreign looking people do that? Well, I’ll do it just in case. Not only foreign looking people do that.)
In addition to it being common behaviour, those people are regular customers, and apart from daring to be foreign and - very occasionally - haggling over the prices of not quite ok goods they never did a thing.

And to make it an all perfect day the boss himself gave a customer false information on the phone, causing the poor dude to drive quite some way in vain. He had specifically said that he wanted a red one, but the boss only called down and asked me if we had the product at all. So I innocently told him, yup, two. They were both blue…
People usually cuss a bit and then leave, and anyway, what’s wrong with telling the truth? When I fuck up, I bear the consequences; when I don’t, I don’t see any reason to. So I said that unfortunately the boss didn’t tell me I had to check for red ones, and that I was very sorry about the whole incident.
This customer though sought out the boss to heartily thank him for the false info.
After that he came back to me and informed me that my boss had just told him that I was full of shit, and that he had specifically instructed me to check for red ones.

I don’t earn enough money for this.

    i know all about this kind of thing. it happens everyday at my store.i’ve gotten quite good at making absolutly no promises about anything.

    nobody can say “brad said this! whaaa whaa whaa!!”
    and you know why? because i NEVER promise anything, and if sombody says my co-workers said somthing, i say go talk to them then.

    tmm

    Well, I didn’t make the promise, Braby, dear, the boss did.

    Anyway, time for an update of yesterday’s entry later after work.
