I was helping a customer pick a paper shredder when another woman approached us. I was in my full uniform with the shirt that says "STAPLES" and had my nametag on. I was turned so the approaching woman could see all this.

So, rather than ask me for help, she touched my customer on the elbow and said "Excuse me? Could I ask you where something is?" :wtf:

My customer was wearing a white shirt, tan pants, and reddish shoes. In other words, nothing even approaching the attire of a Staples associate. Plus, I was right there. And she decided that it was the customer who was really the employee. :rolleyes:

Anyway, the shredder customer took it in stride and said "Oh, you can borrow him for a minute." :lol:

Are we starting a new "Dave for rent" program? You must let us know if it is a rent to own or simply a loaner.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

You know, from now on, whenever someone asks me if I work there I'll just answer "No. They just pay me to show up. If they want work done, they have to give me a raise."

OMG!

I think I saw somebody do the same thing yesterday! :lol:

I saw these two older ladies perusing some stuff in one of the aisles, and there was a guy kinda following after them and asking them "Excuse me...excuse me...do you know where something is?"

Yes, it was Senior Day yesterday. Why do you ask? :angel:

No need to fight. There's plenty of me to go around. :D

That's okay, I'm sure my neighbor down the street will let you drive his. :D

Hey SilverOrb, I'll share. :devil:

We'll divvy him up... Let's take turn on weeks... Poor Dave, doesn't know what he's in for.

On a "side" note: I had someone try to follow my mother around the store yesterday, kept saying "ma'am" repeatedly. My mother ignored him... A store worker had to stop him. Wonder if he thought she worked there?

Dave - do you come with an EPP?? And if so, for how long? Is it back to base? And upgrades... what can I get? And I've heard things about the 1982 model - do you have something more recent??


:p

Dave, while you're in Texas working for EQ, you're really not all that far from me, and I have some things that need to be done.... DH just had his back surgery and isn't quite up and around yet....

Well.....at least I can keep busy once I leave the hellhole that is my current job!!!! :roll:

And yes, any heath insurance provider would live to sell you an EPP on me. :lol:

You know those EEP's are always a waste of money. Besides, I'm American.... We use up a resourse, then throw it away and get a new one.
