I work at the mall.
I figured I might as well try to get something positive out of this experience, so I’m going to start posting about things that happen while I’m at work.
A couple of weeks ago, a customer came to the store to return a pair of pants. A manager walked over and the customer, a woman, explained her situation.
Customer: I need to exchange these pants for a smaller size. I’ve lost a lot of weight recently, due to stress. My mother just died.
Manager: That’s great!
This is insane. Talk about a “silver lining.” Maybe this applies to other, supposedly “tragic” situations.
Customer: I came in to buy a whole new wardrobe because my house burned down and I lost everything.
Sales Associate: A whole new wardrobe? That’s awesome!
Customer: I know!
Lesson learned. Remember to look on the bright side. Although most people may go with “I’m sorry to hear that,” it’s not your only option!
