(It’s the middle of winter. I work the night shift at a large retail chain where home office shuts off the heat at night to save money, since there are far fewer customers. Because of this, we frequently have to wear sweaters to keep warm. This happens on a particularly cold night.”

Coworker #1: “Man, it’s freezing in here!”

Me: “Seriously, I was just about to ask [Manager] if he could do something about the heat, this is kind of crazy at this point.”

Coworker #1: “Don’t bother, I already asked. He said someone asked before me, too, but couldn’t do anything.”

Coworker #2: “I have an idea. *she pulls out a walkie talkie and speaks into it* [Manager] we’ve had multiple customers complaining that it was too cold in the building.”

Manager: “I’ll call home office.”

Me: “There was no customer complaint, was there?”

Coworker #2: *grinning* “Nope!”

(The heat was turned on within an hour)
