Ha! I totally missed the fact that this Wednesday fell on "R" day! How perfect!
Lucy Lately Award:
We received a Customer Survey Feedback where the customer complained that we had almost no children's Easter books and she was very disappointed. We were quite stymied by this complaint, since we had had an entire table filled with both Easter and Passover books covering everything from the Easter Bunny to Jesus' Resurrection to Seders.
Then one of my coworkers looked at the date the customer had visited the store. Yeah, we probably didn't have many Easter books a week and a half after the holiday.
Apparently the Easter Bunny was running late at their house.
Caffeine Deficiency Award:
A woman came up to the cafe counter and asked if anybody had turned in a set of keys. There was nothing in the cafe, so the walkied the rest of us, but no one had turned anything in. The woman stood there insisting that she had only been to the cafe, so her keys had to be there. The barista asked us again. We checked around information, but couldn't find anything. The woman kept insisting that they had to have them somewhere.
Then she paused, walked over to the garbage can and looked inside. Yup. There were her keys. She had thrown them away by accident.
Because this is where I always keep my keys so no one else will take them.
Most Annoying Award:
One of my coworkers, J, was helping a customer when a man came up. He asked where the puzzle books were. She asked him to wait a moment while she finished with the other customer. When she was done, J turned to him and said, "You were looking for puzzle books?"
"Puzzle books! Puzzle books!" he bellowed. "What are you, deaf, lady?"
She should have been wearing this shirt.
Books That Frighten Me Award:
I don't know which scares me more: the fact that this book even exists,
or the fact that it's in the bargain section.
Well, that's it for today, kids. Tune in next week for some more retail craziness.
And don't forget to enter my contest! This is the last day for entries so clickety click your way onto the owl picture up top and I will reveal the winners soon. (I'm thinking of roping my brother, Dave, into helping me pick the winners in a ridiculous way, so it might take a couple of days for me to get them up. But have patience dear readers - if I do, it will totally be worth it :)
