At the Five and Dime

The two store cashiers were laughing.  The supervisor approached them, “You need to be cleaning or practicing aggressive hospitality to get customers to your lane.  The district manager is in the area and may show up at any time.”

Teri said, “You know I already zoned and cleaned my register and there are not many customers.  Can I put returns back on the floor?”

The supervisor said, “No, we already did that.  Just pay attention to the customers, I don’t want to get in trouble for letting you two talk.  Try and at least look busy.”

The two said, “Thanks!”

    1. I was pretty lucky that it was more often customers that tried my patience over managers. But a few of them I remember “fondly” – like the guy who said I was starving babies, when I wouldn’t sell him over our formula limits. Ugh!
