Not sure if anyone recalls-prob not it was an earlier grocery one-about a regular customer. It was a Saturday and we had been bantering until he told me not to squish his bread.
Anyone who has read enough of me knows that is like waving a red cape in front of a bull. I made a few under the radar sarcastic comments, such as he ruined my fun of dancing on it, etc. when he said:
There is always someone above you I can talk to.
Since that day I have seen him on more then one occasion. Total cow too, me that is. I make eye contact and no smile, no hello. Keep on keeping on so to speak.
Last week I was coming up to the front and there was a wee line up at tills. Nothing they cannot handle-no need for me to drop everything and jump in
As I am trundling on who do I see but Mr. Threat. Standing at the end of a line with a person in front of him. Their cart was a little full. His was not.
He saw me coming. He put a smile on his face like we were best friends. I know he thought that I would pull him and quickly ring him through a till.
I walked right passed him.
And made eye contact the whole time as I was walking up and by. No return smile on my face.
I love my job. I love my customers. I do not love being told how to do my job. A job I have been doing forever. I do not appreciate being spoken to like I am an idiot.
Petty revenge? Absolutely.
Maybe next time he will think twice about threatening someone over a joke.
