Okay, so I work at a well-known discount retailer that does not stock shoes for men (or children)—only ladies. Occasionally, we will get some men’s beachwear, like flip-flops, or slippers in the winter. But rule of thumb is that we don’t sell men’s shoes. I was recovering the shoes tonight, when a man approached me and asked where the men’s sandals were. I hadn’t seen any flip-flops out on the floor, so I told him “Sir, we don’t sell men’s shoes here.” He came back with “none at all?”
“Nope, I’m sorry, sir.” I smiled politely as he huffed and walked away.
Five minutes later he comes back up to me, waving a pair of flip-flops in my face. He looked at me like I was an idiot incapable of doing my job and said “I found a pair of men’s sandals over there. Why did you lie to me?” I gaped at him for a minute, and said “I’m sorry, sir. We don’t normally carry men’s shoes here, so any that you find are really just a lucky find.” I tried to smile, but he just glared at me and said “Well, I’m telling your manager that you were very unhelpful and you lied to me,” and he stormed off.
Turns out, on our last truck, we got exactly 10 pairs of men’s flip-flops in, and that guy had found the very last pair, sitting on a shelf below a display of swim trunks.
Yes, sir; because I am supposed to know the EXACT inventory of this store—that I only work in 2 or 3 days a week—right down to the very last pair of flip-flops.
My manager commended me on not punching him. :)
TELL ME YOU WORK AT TJMAXX SO THAT I KNOW I’M RIGHT. OMG. THIS PROBLEM ALL THE TIMES.
