Default If itís in the store then itís mine mine mine.

So this is from the height of the pandemic when people were still very much panic buying everything. We provide, free of charge, hand sanitizer in the form of liquid or wipes for customers. It is expected that employees also use them between customers.

Now a thing to note is are liquid hand sanitizer smells like bottom shelf gin. Very very strongly.

Due to the fact Iím apparently allergic to both the gloves and our hand sanitizer Iíve got special permission to use my own hand sanitizer at work. As such Iíve been using a lot of it to make up for the fact I canít where the gloves provided. (Ever stick your hand in stinging nettle? Thatís what it feels like. Not to mention that Iíd start with a small glove and end the day in an XL). My stuff is super expensive stuff that goes for about $30 a bottle.

It doesnít smell like cheap gin either.

This SC decides that she needs to sanitize her hands. Which is what our shit is there for anyway. No big deal. I get it, pandemic going on you wanna keep healthy and all. So I offer the usual choice of wipes or liquid.

Oh no.

She wants my stuff instead.

I explain itís my own personal sanitizer that I bought with my own money. Iíve received special permission for because Iím allergic to the stuff provided by the store. I want to avoid getting sick too and all that. Usually people accept that and move on.

Not this lady.

Oh no, sheís SpEcIaL.

I have to give her mine because it smells nicer and sheís a customer. And going on about how ďI canít deny her legal rights...etcĒ. First of all, legally, we donít even have to be open much less provide you out of the stores pockets access to hand sanitizer. Second of all I bought it it is mine therefore not yours.

She finally left when she realized she couldnít bully me into anything. But not until after holding up the line (keeping in mind we couldnít let anyone in until someone left)

Talking Legal rights

Everyone claims something is their legal right until you ask them to call the police if that is so.

The really bad ones really do believe such nonsense that they will even call 911 to demand what they want.

Does not work in those cases either.

I'd have been sorely tempted to hand her the disinfectant we use on the belts (I work in a grocery store) if she doesn't like the proffered hand sanitizer.

Is there any way you can tuck yours more or less out of sight?

Entitlement knows no limits.

Like just about everyone, I don't like government tissues so brought my own. When I got rotated to the lobby of the food stamp office, I brought my box with me and hid them under the counter.

At least once a week, a client would demand to use my personal tissues (which they assumed I had because nobody likes using the government ones). Even better, once I felt nice and held my box out for someone to take a tissue. She tried to take the whole box.

Luckily in my job one of the options in the uniform is an apron. I asked for one, and kept all that stuff in the two large pockets, so the stuff was pretty much invisible to customers.

Nowadays, of course, hand lotion is irrelevant, given that I wear gloves for my shift.

Never mind the mentality of wanting something that has been explained is your own personal property, that's just the typical sucky customer selfishness. Where do these idiots get this "legal right" bs from? This kind of thing is never stated by any official, there is nowhere from which they can get this belief because it does not exist. But there they are, spouting of imaginary "information". STFU idiot.

I think they're just working on the theory that announcing "legal rights" or "it's a law!" will cause a knee-jerk reaction that results in them getting what they want ... usually, of course, they just get laughed at.

You work for a government organization that buys tissues for general use? I've been with three government agencies now where I'm lucky they buy us pens, let alone tissues.
