I got a rude awakening last night. I helped a good friend of mine out by running her store for the day as she was out sick. OK..no problem there. It was kinda slow, so the other helper called up to see how things were going. I told her it was kinda slow, and keeping in mind what happened the previous day, we both concluded it wouldn’t be worth her coming in the snow a half-hour trip just to sit on our thumbs. Well, one of the other guys came in and things started picking up, but we handled it well, and ended the day on a high note.
Until it came time to call the owner with what happened that day…..
Instead of “great job, guys” or “thanks for helping out”, all I heard was “Well, we could have done better with another *good* salesperson on the floor” and “Why was I not consulted on this?” Gee…some show of trust there, huh?
Screw it…I’m done there anyway, and have no intention of going back.
