For once, I would just like to have a normal graveyard shift go by without any kind of incident. Between then alcoholics trying to buy even more beer when they come in or the homeless guys from down the block trying to steal some food before going into hiding for the night, I would like to have just one uneventful shift.
I really wouldn’t mind sitting behind the counter most of the shift waiting for a customer to come in and calmly buy a pack of smokes or a cheap lotto ticket. I mean, why the hell do the morning and mid-shifts get all of the polite people while I get all of the weirdos?
And why the hell am I always on my own during this? Thank god there’s a security camera to catch this all going down.
The old lady shouted as she headed for the exit, “The service here was nothing but rude manners and unhelpful employees who don’t know how to help the elderly. They won’t even allow a slightly old coupon to be used.”
Thankfully it was late at night and no other customers were in the store, so I shouted back at her for fun, “That coupon was over a year old, you dumb bitch.”
She gasped when I called her that. She shouted one more time before leaving, “I’m gonna lave you a one-star review online!”
I shivered in a mocking manor.
