Boss Overheard When This Customer Warned His Employee To Get Her Fired From The Job.
Older lady comes to the register with 30 jars of pickled onions.
Lady: all of these are out of date!
Me: confused because those just came in: I’m sorry?
Lady: these are all out of date! I checked them all and look they’re 6 months out of date. What kind of shop are you running?
Me: could you pass me one please?
Lady: huffs and slams one down on the counter, I think it’s despicable that the staff here aren’t doing their job, Just disgraceful!
Me: having read the dates on the jar and immediately realising what’s happened: oh I see, if you look just here the date you were looking at was the production date, the best before date is just below it.
Lady: I know how to read a date!
Me: it’s very easy to misread the label on these but I assure you they’re well within date (it’s not easy to misread, very clearly says production on the first line and best before on the second)
Lady: How could you be so rude? I’m going to call corporate and have you fired!
She left in a huff and my boss (and the owner of the company) who had watched the whole thing burst out laughing.
