Dressed To Unimpress
 
So this happened just this morning.

I work for a small company. We have no uniform, instead the dress code is merely smart, tidy and sensible. For most of the time that translates as clean slacks and either a shirt or a plain no-logo t-shirt. I almost always wear a plain shirt, black trousers, black braces and a plain tie.

This mroning a customer came in a d asked for the boss man. I called him out and the following conversation ensued:

Sc: Morning. I've got a complaint for you
BossMan: Oh
SC: Its about boggles.
ME: oh
SC: Well more precisely it's his appearance. I think you need serious words with him. On Sunday he quite frankly looked scruffy and a mess.
BM: that's odd I don't recall him looking scruffy that day.
SC: well he was when I saw him. He was wearing scruffy tracksuit pants and a sweaty t shirt.
Me: oh yeah. I was wearing that when I saw you.
BM: Really?
Me: yes. It was about five hours after we closed when I was leaving the gym!
BM: ok then. I don't really think you've got grounds to complain then I'm afraid.
SC: You won't do anything then? Well that's appalling. I Won't be coming here again then.
BM: ok, bye bye.

:headscratch: So this guy is upset because of what you were wearing when you were off duty?

:no: Wow.

Some people have no lives if they're watching you at work...

What, do they think that retail workers become <insert size of choice here> by magic? If so, I want some! :D

I think he genuinely didn't realise I wasn't working.

People get used to seeing me evry morning when they go to work, every evening when they come back from wok and every weekend when they are out shopping so they can't handle seeing me outside of a retail context. It's the same with people who see me in the village pub and think it is acceptable to start work talk because they can't cope with the concept of off-duty.

Can anyone say stalker? You may want to start keeping track of any contact you have with this person...just in case.

He gets corrected and still persists on a complaint!?!

Why hasn't anybody designs a cranium-anus extraction kit yet? It seems that so many people suffer from a improperly-stored head.

They have. It's called a "crowbar," and can be picked up easily and cheaply at your local hardware store :D
