Congratulating all my fellow retail slaves for surviving another Holiday Season :(

Ours was the usual .... hordes of people who didn't know what they wanted - "You know that thing, on TV, that has the <gestures with hands>" etc.

But we had two calls - CALLS, not even people in the store - who made me say WTF? How are you alive????

Call #1
It's Christmas Eve, about 8:30pm. Our pharmacy closes at 6 on the weekends (need I remind everyone that Christmas Eve was on a Sunday this year?)

RINGGGGGGGGGG!!!!

Me: "Thank you for calling <my store> this is <my name> how can I help you?"
Her: "argabargle why the f** did your pharmacy close early??? argabargle"
Me: "They didn't close early, they closed at the regular time, 6:00"
Her: "NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! They only close at 6 on the weekends!!!!!! argabargle"
Me: "Yes they closed at 6 today, because it's Sunday"
Her: "No it's not. It's CHRISTMAS EVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Me: <dead silence as I tried to wrap my head around that statement> "Yes ma'am, AND it's Sunday"

Well, this went on for awhile. She finally gave up and slammed the phone down.


Call #2

My store manager was the lucky one who got this ....

RINGGGGGGGGGGGGG

Him: "Thank for for calling <my store> this is <his name> how can I help you?"
Caller: "Yeah I bought a drone from you right before Christmas"
Him: "Okay"
Caller: "Well today I was flying it ......... and it FLEW OFF!!! You NEED to REPLACE IT!!!"
Him: <sound of crickets> "Ummm No, you lost it"
Caller: "NO I DIDN'T it FLEW OFF!!!!!! You HAVE to replace it!!!!!"
Him: "Uh, NO. Thanks for calling."

Sounds to me like it escaped and ran away back to the wild

Out local neighborhood listserve had a note from someone who was flying their drone for the first time and it disappeared. He was asking if anyone had found it.

At the same time there were postings about hawk sightings in the area.

And someone posted a video of a hawk attacking and downing a drone. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhDG_WBIQgc)

Even if they can't eat it, they have SLAIN THE INTRUDER! So that's some satisfaction for them. :devil:
