You are a rock star.Not one of my proudest moments, but it felt right at the time. In my last job, I worked as a sales rep for Pepsi. Som I’m standin at the Casey’s gas station one Monday morning here in my hometown, fixin to go over my order with the store manager before it gets delivered the next day, so that she can modify it if she wants to. As I’m standing there waiting for her to end her conversation with the lady in the kitchen, another lady walks in the door. I like to call her type “stamp champs.” This lady walks over to the doughnut case and grabs a white cake doughnut. Proceeds to walk over to the cold vault, and grabs a can of Monster. She walks up to the register and sets her doughnut down on the little piece of wax paper that she grabbed the doughnut with, then places the Monster can down. Lady then pulls out her link card. Michelle, my store manager says, “Ma’am, I’m sorry, but you can’t buy monster with a link card.” So the lady walks back to the cold vault and puts it back on the shelf. She then grabs a can of Mtn Dew Amp. Comes back to the register and Michelle says “ma’am I’m sorry but you can’t buy amp with a link card.” So goes back to the vault, comes back with a can of Rockstar. Michelle’s response once again, “ ma’am I’m sorry but you can’t buy rockstar with a link card either.” Some now she flips out and gets aggressive acting like a two year old little brat who isn’t getting her way, and she yells at Michelle, “WELL SHAT CAN I GET THEN??!!” Michelle says, “the only energy drink that is approved by link is Red Bull.” The lady says, “that stuff is disgusting, it tastes like carbonated bubble gum!!” So, she returns to the cold vault to return the Rockstar, and grabs a can of Red Bull. Lemme remind you, the only people in this station during this time, are the lady working in the kitchen, the stamp champ, the manager Michelle, and myself. The way this lady snapped back at Michelle over not being able to get an energy drink ticked me off, cuz I didn’t feel that she honestly needed the doughnut either. So when she turns her back to replace the rockstar and grab the red bull, I reach down and grab that doughnut, and take a bite out of, then set it back down on the wax paper on the counter. My manager is standing right there behind the counter at the register like . I hear the door to the fridge shut so I know Ol girl is on her way back. I turned to look out the front door as I tried to choke this thing down. She comes back up and looks at her doughnut, and has the same reaction. She looks at
Michelle who just shrugs her shoulders, as to say “wasn’t me.” She then turns to me and says, “DID YOU EAT MY DOUGHNUT??!!” I said “no ma’am, I did not eat your doughnut, I just ate the piece that I’m paying for.” She threw a little fit and stomped out the door, leaving the Red Bull and the remainder of the doughnut sitting there. Michelle asked, “why in the world did you do that?!” I told her I didn’t appreciate her tone and the was she was acting, over not being able to get “free” items to her, whenever her and I hafta work everyday to not only feed our own families, but also other peoples family’s with that mindset. She then says, “welp, I guess you’ve got a doughnut to pay for.” Lesson learnt!!!
