An Interesting Interview…

22 07 2009

I recently interviewed a friend that after 10 years of retirement, he went to Wal-Mart to supplement his income, especially with this economy. Here’s what he had to say….

“So after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter, a good find for many retirees, I lasted less than a day…… About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, unattractive, mean-acting woman walked into the store with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.

As I had been instructed, I said pleasantly, ‘Good morning and welcome to Wal-Mart. Nice children you have there. Are they twins?’ The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say, ‘Hell no, they ain’t twins. The oldest one’s 9, and the other one’s 7. Why the hell would you think they’re twins? Are you blind, or just stupid?’ So I replied, ‘I’m neither blind nor stupid, Ma’am, I just couldn’t believe someone slept with you twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.’ My supervisor said I probably wasn’t cut out for this line of work.”

I wouldn’t be cut out to be a greeter, either. Actually I’m not cut out for much of anything requiring having to deal with the public though I’ve been forced into it most of my life. But I certainly relate to your experience.

I once worked for a company that made great cleaning products for boats. On the label of each product was an 800 number and I was on the receiving end. The last phone call I received and the one that got me canned went like this:

“Good afternoon, how can I help you?”

“I have a bottle of your awning cleaner but I don’t quite understand the instructions.”

“What’s the problem?” I asked.

“Well it says add one part cleaner to six parts water. What’s a part?”

There was a stunned silence for a few beats… “A part is anything you want it to be.”

“I don’t understand.”

“Do you have a shot glass?”

“Yes.”

“Okay the contents of the shot glass would be a ‘part'”

“Huh?”

“One shot of awning cleaner added to six shots of water.”

And then the caller said, (no sh*t) “But that won’t be nearly enough.”

There wasn’t any pause before I said, “How the hell did you ever find your way home from the store?”

It was about 20 minutes later that the big boss came to my office and told me to pack up and leave.
