(A man walks to the counter.)
Me: Can I help you with anything?
Customer: No. I need to wait and check with the boss.
Me: Alright. After you check with the boss, let me know what I can get you.
(I go back to work)
Coworker: How can I help you?
Customer: I’m waiting for my wife.
(He goes back to work. )
(A few seconds later his wife, “The Boss” walks up. She she’s her husband waiting by the counter)
The Boss: (gesturing in disbelief at my coworker and me) Is anybody helping you?!?!
Customer: No. I wanted....
The Boss: Hello!!!! Can we get some damn help here?!?!?!
Me: (running over) I’m sorry, ma’am. I asked your husband if he needed help.
Customer: He asked. I was waiting for you.
Me: What can I get you?
(The Boss then spends 40 seconds looking over the case and talking with her husband. I stand there; I don’t dare walk away)
The Boss: Do you have hamburger that’s leaner than this?
Me: I do in the counter out there. It’s already priced, you can grab whatever you want.
(She storms off with her husband trailing behind. )
