    Too Much Worky Makes One Murky

    | Houston, TX, USA | Bosses & Owners

    (Note: I’ve worked in retail for years at several different stores. I’m closing things out after a particularly busy shift when the phone rings.)

    Me: “Hello, thank you for calling [name of music store where I used to work]. How can I help you?”

    Caller: “Um, excuse me?!”

    Me: “Oh, right. Hello, thank you for calling [name of bath and body store where I currently work].”

    (The caller starts speaking again. To my horror, I realize it’s our District Manager.)

    District Manager: “So… what say I call back and we try this again?”

    Me: “That is an excellent idea.”

    (As it turns out, our DM thought the whole conversation was hilarious. The Gods of Retail were smiling on me that day!)
