.Anyone who wants to bitch or talk about the fun they had at work today, can post here.
Be a good way to pass some new interesting stories around the forum, and to blow off some steam.

I don't have to many complaints today. My boss is awesome. That's just about it.

Well there was one shit thing that happened today.

This old lady comes in and asks one of our volunteers (good friend of mine) about curtain rods. He takes her to the curtain rods and she says they're not the right size. Volunteer then says we do have some more in the back but I am afraid you can't go back there. It's off limits to the customers. I can run back there and see what we have. Then she says in an aggravated tone "why can't customers go back there?"
Volunteer says "because, that's where all the new invictory that hasn't been priced yet is.
She says thank you for nothing to the volunteer.
We have a downstairs in our thrift store. We keep things like ovens doors windows air ducts, and other shit down there. It is cold down there because of the shop door is open all the time, lots of people drop their donations off there. She hobbles down there and is gone for like 5 minutes. Meanwhile I am at the front desk pricing new invintory. My boss was working the register. That old bitch comes back up stairs and says this to us.
"You people aren't very nice."
My boss is like excuse me?
Then the old hag says this
"That man shouldn't be working here!" pointing at the volunteer.
"He told me you had more curtain rods downstairs, but there isn't! It's freezing down there!"
The volunteer walks up and says "excuse me mam, but I am afraid you misunderstood me. I said we had more curtain rods in the back. Not downstairs."
I don't get why she didn't like the volunteer, he was very polite to her. I was there and witnessed this whole event.
The damn hag almost went into a fit!
Finally my boss asks "what size is your window?"
The old lady then says this.
"What has that got to do with a curtain rod?"
"We can't help you if we don't know what size your window is." my boss replied.
"You are no help at all the service here is terrible (bullshit, since we always ask a roaming customer if they need help, and our timing on delivery is impecible). The old bitch finally leaves.
I still don't get it, the volunteer (sorry vagabond, he where prefers to be called a vagabond than a volunteer, loll) is the best man anyone can ask for. In fact today he got 5 compliments out of 6 customers.

Just some crazy ol bat.

Really you kinda had to be there to see how the boss handled it. I could tell she was getting mad, but she kept a smile on her face. Lol.
