Gentle Customer

Posted on Sat, Jan 12, 2013 at 8:23 AM

we truly appreciate the fact that you shop at our grocery store, we
understand that at the end of a very long day, we all get a little tense
and are ready to get home, slip into our casual clothes, slippers, and
relax. Please bear in mind though that your irritation that we seem to not
be working fast enough, is in fact an error. We have to be very precise in
certain transactions, our very livelihood depends on 100% accuracy. I can
only hope that if and when you are the age that my customer is, you will
also hope that the person behind you will be patient and not keep making
such an uproar that I would have been delighted to tell you to "Shut Up!"
However, a cooler head prevailed and I smiled and said politely, "I'll be
right with you, Sir, thanks for waiting." Maybe patience should be your New
Year's resolution.
