So, I had an interesting day at work. Interesting being a euphemism for bad.
Example interaction: ” Can you help me find a particular book, please?”
“I’d be happy to. What are we looking for?”
“I think it’s red, there’s a picture of a girl on the cover, and I think it’s written by a guy. But I’m not sure.”
“Excuse me, I spilled coffee on this book I was looking at.”
“Oh, no! Well, accidents happen…”
“So I was wondering if I could get a discount on it now?”
And the crowning glory of my day, as I was leaving the washroom after tidying it, a customer came in through the door at high speed, hitting me in the face with the door, and breaking my tooth (as well as leaving a very impressive lump on my jaw). Some days, I feel like I should get hazard pay.
