My Lovely Co-workers Part 2
Here's something funny about my retarded co-workers and employees:
Yesterday I went into my store to finish the schedule for next week. I was on my own time and I told them from the get-go not to bother me with work-related stuff.
So one of my "managers" comes running into the office where I was, looking like someone was attacking her with pepper spray or something, and said, "Oh, my God! We just saw a beetle or something! I think it came from yesterday's shipment!"
I blank-stared at her and said, "What?"
She continues, "I was showing a customer a shirt and a bug fall off of it and started crawling on the floor. I think it came from our shipment because this shirt is made in Vietnam and I think it's like a Vietnam beetle or something!"
Keep in mind that (1) our clothes may be manufactured overseas, but they are distributed to stores at a distribution center located in Phoenix, Arizona, and (2) she's saying all of this in a very frantic way, like the sky is falling.
So I continue to blank-stare at her and I asked, "So what do you want me to do about it?"
She replied, "Well, I don't know what to do?"
I said, "Why don't you kill it?"
She said, "I just don't want the store infested with Vietnam beetles."
Realizing that she can't handle submitting a work order to have the Terminex man come spray the store since she's worried about Vietnam beetles, I told her I would do it and to leave me alone so I can finish the schedule.
About 2 minutes later, a co-worker, who thinks the manager and everyone else who works with us is stupid came into the office.
She says, "When 'manager' came into the office, 'employee' was standing there watching the bug. And when I told her to kill it, she said she wanted to wait and see what you had to say."
I said, "Lord have mercy, you mean she wouldn't kill it until she found out what I said about a bug?"
She laughed and said, "Yes!"
I dropped my head into my hands and thought, "I have got to get away from these morons." Then I told the girl, "All I told 'manager' was to kill it."
She laughed again and said, "I told her that's what you would say. What else would you say? Then she stood there and watched the bug crawl into the wall. Now it's going to multiple and we'll have a real problem."
Again, I dropped my head into my hands and thought, "I have got to get away from these people."
