Default The SC That Wasn't There

Forgot about this one from last night, but about 40 minutes before I clocked out last night, I got paged to the service desk, and was told a customer had called from the parking lot in need of assistance. I assume she needed me to bring her a Mart Cart, which I had no problem with...but did I mention it was full dark and PISSING down rain, replete with thunder & lightning flashes, and that this woman didn't give me any idea as to her specific location (other than "the bakery side" of the store)? I threw on a raincoat and wandered around for a few minutes, looking into each car I passed to see if I could spot a woman who looked in need of assistance before I said, "Screw it", and came in. She never called back during the remaining half-hour of my shift (of course, the service desk closed a few minutes after her call, so if she did, I don't know where it would have been re-routed), so I have no idea what happened to her, if she was even there to begin with. Jesus, lady, if you needed a Mart Cart, the least you could have done was honked or flashed your headlights, or something!

Rain tends to dampen out certain ESP signals. Also shorted out his give-a-sheets.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn't there!
He wasn't there again today,
Oh how I wish he'd go away!
(From "Antigonish" by William Hughes Mearns.)
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.
One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.
The other, of course, involves orcs." -- John Rogers

I got yelled at by a customer who wasn't where he was supposed to be. I got paged for assistance, and I went to the aisle where I had been paged to, and nobody was there. I waited around for five minutes, checked around close to the area, and then gave up and went back to what I was working on.

About 10 minutes later when I was back to what I had been working on before the page, some guy walked up to me and started ranting about how someone was supposed to help him but no one showed up. I explained that I went to where I had been paged, and no one was there, but he didn't want to hear it. I guess I was supposed to wait all day for him, and that there were no other customers in the store and no other work to be done. I asked him what he needed help with, and he just said to forget it and stormed off.
