Title: Lady asks to see my manager at the store I actually do work at to complain about the fact that I don’t work at the store she wants help in
Lady asks to see my manager at the store I actually do work at to complain about the fact that I don’t work at the store she wants help in
This is my second post in this sub and I’m starting to think I just have a face that makes people think I work for them.
I used to work at a pet shop but recently left for a job at a large retail company that sells body care in the U.K.
The uniform is all black and I work on a busy high street not far from a popular clothes shop, which I have gotten into the habit of popping into after my shift to browse the clothes.
The uniform at the clothes shop is also all black everything, which isn’t usually an issue considering it’s not odd to see people walking around in all black, or so I thought until today.
My shift ended at 4 pm and being a few days after pay day I fancied a new top for work, so I nipped into the clothes shop and started picking up bits to try on.
I get to the changing rooms, clothes in hand and make my way down a corridor to a vacant changing room to try on my stuff, when a lady, around 40? Hands me a bunch of garments and tells me that she doesn’t want them, and then asks me to fetch her a top in a different size. Not politely either. To paraphrase;
‘Don’t want these. Want this in a 12. Be quick because I’ve got to pick up my kids’
I’m usually a bit gobby, but my shift having just ended I was still in work mode and am terminally polite to rude members of the public in this state of mind.
‘Oh, I’m really sorry, I actually don’t work here’ I say or something along those lines, laughing it off to spare her any embarrassment.
She went very red in the face and then...I shit you not boys, asked to see my manager.
I reiterate that I don’t work there, that I work at the body care shop (3 guesses for what shop it is) and apologise again.
She then asks me to take her to see my manager. My manager at the body care shop. She literally asked me to take her back to my place of work so she can complain to my manager about me not working at the clothes shop.
At this point I am confused, tired, and getting irritable. So my gobby side starts emerging, and I straight up tell her to fuck off and drop the clothes she handed me.
Thinking back on it now, I told her where I work and then swore at her, so I wouldn’t be too surprised if she actually did go to my manager and complain. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow, will update!
Update: so first let me clear up some confusion in the comments.
My store is literally a few stores away from the clothes store, so she didn’t need to drive.
Ok. The update. Oh my god boys, strap in cos it’s madness.
I started my shift at 12 today and just got done. When I got in my manager immediately asked to see me in the office. Yep, that’s right, the lady some of you are calling “Karen” legit delayed picking up her own children to go to my store and complain about the fat girl with the purple hair who swore at her.
Ok, the fallout. Apparently my manager had given her a shit load of free samples and booked her a makeover that I WILL HAVE TO DO before she was appeased.
So my manager informs me that I will have to do this ladies makeup at the end of the month when she booked it for, and then informs me that this discussion is recorded and the first strike on my record towards a disciplinary. Which I understand. Fair enough. I was rude to a lady who I then told where I work, so it’s my own fault. HOWEVER I have to give this lady a full makeover at the end of this month which i presume will be awkward as fuck, therefore I will give another update when it happens. My manager was kind of cool about it, she agreed that the lady was a pain in the arse but really had to take action otherwise it would look bad on her. She did not have to do me like that though booking me to do her a makeover, but she’s a player like that.
