I cannot wait until they raise the minimum wage!
I have a local store I go to a few times a month. You may have been to one of these. They’re the kind that has everything you need under one roof. Their prices are lower than anyone else (so they say.) They’ve “kicked out” all of the mom and pop stores in the surrounding area. I’m not going to name this place, lets just say it’s a mart that has wal(ls) around it.
I’m not going to get into the good and bad of these stores. They’re here to stay. My problem with them is the employees that work there. From my experience they don’t seem to care about the job. By the job, I mean their customers.
On one recent visit I went in looking for…. something. Not sure what and it doesn’t matter. (Don’t you hate it when someone is telling a story and they forget a detail that is the least bit important. They just go on and on trying to remember.) One employee just about ran me over with her stock cart. No excuse me, no apology, just a glare. I felt like I was in her way! I was in her path however I’m the customer. I would hope she would at least say “pardon me sir would you mind if I pass through?” Not one of us would say no. Here’s a thought how about “Hello sir, are you finding everything ok?”
This job would be so much easier if it wasn’t for the customers!
