‘I can’t believe they’re making you work today!’ says reason you have to work today

In a shocking turn of events, local retail employee Jane Doe was reportedly overwhelmed with joy this afternoon, after a customer attempted to empathise with their situation by stating ‘I can’t believe they’re making you work today!’

Customer John Wallace, seemingly unaware of the fact that he would not be able to do his last minute shop if staff were not required to work, stated that “those corporate suits really are scrooges aren’t they?” before expressing condolences for Doe’s unfortunate circumstance, completely oblivious to the fact that he was the reason for her being at work in the first place. “I just feel so bad for you having to be here on a day like this,” he said, as Doe silently resented the fact that he had interrupted her 2 hour customer free streak. “Well at least I’m giving you something to do while you wait!”

Asked whether he might consider shopping on a different day in order to let retail staff have Christmas eve off, Wallace explained that this simply wasn’t feasible. “The fact is I simply couldn’t have done my shopping any other time,” explained Wallace. “It just wouldn’t be Christmas if I didn’t do all my weeks shopping at 6pm on the 24th of December, and then have a meltdown at a 15 year old after being told the store sold out of roast chickens 3 hours ago.”
