It’s Happening to Everyone!

I started work at 7 this morning because T had a filling appointment at 2.
So I was working 7-1:30 and taking some holiday hours.
It was brutally dead.
Finished my first two orders by 8:30.
Puttered around looking for things to do.
We have a supervisor who is right over the top.
I have talked about her before and how she stresses over the most silly things.
Making herself sick at times because she gets so worked up.
So I kinda did this thing.
Me (sidling up to her): Hey J while you were on break an oven in bakery blew up.
J: What? Now? Are you…..
Me (bursts out laughing): I’m sorry I just had to. 😂😂😂😂😂😂
J (laughing): You are so mean!
Me (laughing): Do you really think I would let you finish your break if the oven blew up?
I later explained to her that I only do that with people I like.
And it is true.
I get things so backwards sometimes.
I had gone upstairs to check for orders when the phone rang.
I answered.
Some days I wonder about my inability to let the phone ring.
Today is one of those days.
Me: Good morning thank you for calling Steinbach Sobeys this is Jay-lyn how may I help you.
C: Is the manager in?
Me: No I am sorry he is off today, would his second be able to help you?
C: Well maybe you can help me. You are taking back that space you gave up before right?
Me: Yes we are increasing by 5000 sq feet.
C: So you are getting bigger.
Me: Yes m’am we are gaining another 5000 sq feet.
C: Are the bathrooms getting done? Those bathrooms of yours are awful.
Me: I am sorry m’am I have nothing to do with the redesign or renos of the store.
C: I am afraid to lock the door when I used the bathroom. People have gotten locked in there. There is a sign.
Me: No m’am the sign is to say you only need to push the knob in not turn it. 🙄
C: But people are getting locked in there.
Me: I have never heard of anyone getting locked in the bathroom. 🙄
C: Well I guess I will have to try to trust you. But what if I did get locked in there how would I get out?
Me: We have a key we would be able to let you out. 🗝🗝🗝
C: Well how is anyone going to hear me?📢📢📢
Me: If you bang on the door, call hello, yell help someone will hear you.
C: Are you sure? 🤷🤷🤷
Me: M’am I personally walk by that door at least 100x a day. Someone will hear you.
C: Ok I guess I have to believe you.  🤦🤦🤦🤦 But could you please let the manager know that the bathrooms need renovating.
Me: Yes I can.
And I did.
Indicating I had taken a call from a customer who would like to see the bathrooms renovated because ‘people are getting locked in the bathroom.’
I am most impressed with myself that I did not laugh or anything.
I had to repeat myself a lot about no one ever getting locked in there because she was sure I was wrong.
I always love when customers know more about the store I work in than I do. 😂🙄😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
