This happened to me in 2013. i was over 30, had gone back to school, and it was the Friday before finals week on my last semester to finish my CE degree. Bordering around campus, it’s rather low income and not highly educated, and not a place I frequented.
I walked into a gas station, we’ll call it Square L, about 7:30am. Locally, that’s 30 minutes after they start selling alcohol, county is dry between 3am and 7am. Grab two of the largest packs of cheap beer they sell, and head up to the register. No big deal, just stocking up for a small “study party” with friends on campus later that day.
The person behind the register eyes me suspiciously as I set them on the counter and tells me I’m not buying them. I politely explain it’s after 7am, and I don’t see a problem. The manager, denoted by dress shirt instead of polo leans over and tells her to get my ID, so she asks me for it. I’m like fine, whatever, and I fidget around a minute before realizing it’s in my car. I say as much and offer to grab it, and she told me to go ahead.
The Background: This happened a few hours ago. I work at a large chain of pizza restaurants. Let’s call it Pominos Dizza. Like most places, we get a few prank calls a week from pre teens. Usually it doesn’t bother me and I’ll go along with it because it gives me something to do when it’s slow. But being a Friday night, we were busy and I wasn’t having it. Me will be me, and K will be kid.
Me: Hi thanks for calling Pominos Dizza, how can I help you tonight?
K: trying but not succeeding in holding in his laughter Hey is Mr Wall there?
This is a very tame story /w a fairly satisfying end.
During college I worked a fair amount of crappy jobs. One of them being McDonalds. I had worked my way up from Grill guy to running the back end. This is not a promotion, it’s barely a change of physical position, but it is less hot. One of the perks is that I get my very own headset to listen in on all the orders so that I can get a head start on making the items as the person is asking for them.
First time poster; be gentle. P.s. this is going to be pretty long. Tl:Dr at the bottom.
Set up; I work at a big box retail store. Like the biggest. You know the one. And I’m a customer service manager. My job has a lot of responsibilities, and as the closer I have an extra one. My shifts are 2-11, with an hour lunch at 6 (usually 730).
As the closer, it’s my responsibility to pull all but a couple register tills in the store every night by 9pm (I would have to start at 8 for this) and by 10 I needed to have a certain set of registers set up for 3rd shift, because at midnight it’s a new day and this is how they keep track of sales.
Seems simple enough, right?
So, there’s there’s a large, greedy software company – let’s call them ‘Orrible, since that’s the most printable name we use for them. They actually have reasonably good albeit expensive tech support.
We had a problem with their software and placed a tech call. Because the problem was causing a production outage, we escalated priority – from one business day to 4 hour response. In addition, we set the “continuous coverage” flag.
