Lazy young man, really!!!

We have a walk up window at our pharmacy. I was finishing up a customer when I heard the lady behind her ask, are you next? I couldn't see this person but he said, no, just waiting and she responded, oh you're one of those lazy young men with no job, just hanging out. So I stuck my head out of the window, out of concern for our customers and the lazy young man was my son!!! He just got home from Iraq and came by to surprise me! I screamed and cried, lol My son made it home safely!!! This lady was so embarrassed, but I refused to acknowledge her..Open mouth and insert foot! You never know who you're talking to! Just wanted to share :)

  • Congrats on your son coming home safe! As for that lady I would have handed her a paper towel and asked her to wipe the egg off her face

  • I'm so sorry that that happened. Some people just don't think, they just say what they want without the regards of others. I do hope he told her that you were his mom and he got back from Iraq. Congratulations for you and your son, I know the both of you are elated. I hope she was around to see that moment!

  • How can any employee at ANY store think she can talk to guests that way? Even if he's not buying anything, he's still a guest in your store! I have obnoxious teenagers looking and touching everything in my store all the time and I'm still nice to them! CUSTOMER SERVICE IS PART OF THE JOB DESCRIPTION, LADY!!

    Glad your son made it home safe!
