I was working the register over the busy weekend. A customer and his wife come up to my register to check out. Suddenly he coughs directly in my direction without covering his mouth. I quickly take a couple steps back and check them out as fast as I can. As soon as they are done checking out, I rush to the bathroom and scrub my hands as best I can for 2 or 3 minutes.
I don't suppose any of these idiots have ever heard of a small epedimic going around called the swine flu?! Or have they been living in caves?!
I have had this happen before where customers just cough or sneeze in my direction and don't give a crap in the world if they get us sick, and of course we can't say anything to them or run the risk of getting a complaint.
Now I will ask all of you to please forgive my paranoa. But my best friend's stepdad has the swine flu, he's probably got it in his system right now but hasn't shown symptoms yet, and now my nephew who lives with us has caught it. So yes, I think I have every right to be afraid and concerned.
Getting back to the main point, I just can't believe how stupid customers can be (then again they are customers and need
) and that they just go around coughing without covering their mouths. What pisses me off even more is the fact that there are some who actually don't give a shit if we get sick. You'd think people would be mroe careful about spreading germs with something like swine flu going around. Then again, we all know how stupid customers are.
