So this happened today and figured I'd share.

So I'm at work and I'm busy unloading the truck with my crew when I notice a lady turkey peeking at us from around a corner in appliances. Now this happen alot and usually means they are lookin for help since customers arnt allowed in the unloading bay where me and my crew work. So I tell the guys I'll be right back and go to see what the problem . I go round the corner and it's her and another lady. I say
"Ma'am ,you happen to need help with anything ?"
She looks at me and goes
" Yeees there Is! Where is they Lysol?!"
Guys this is an almost everyday deal now ,people seem to think that Lysol is the only thing that can kill Covid so we always have people coming in buying it since the dollar stores and such are always out. But again it's almost daily deal so I give her the same answer I give everyone. I tell her .
" Sorry Ma'am but we're out but"
She cuts me off
"You unload the trucks right ?"
"Yes ma'am"
"Is there any on that truck ?"
I tell her point blank I have no clue to what's on that truck as the manifest in given dosent list anything under the $1500 price mark even then its usally pretty vauge I know the number of items on the truck and that's about it. And at this point she proceeds to get a little upset. She starts going
" So is there in the back you know about with ya little short self ? I know store be keeping stuff in the back so y'all should have some !"
"Ma'am this store does not operate that way,only thing we keep in the back are appliances and special orders every thing elese gets top stocked out side on the store floor but Lysol has become such a big ticket item lately that we never have it for long at all. Three days is usually the longest a pallet lasts."
Now at this point she pull out her phone
"Well on the website it says right here that y'all have 450 cans in the store ,so why is it y'all telling me you don't? Honestly everyone else seems to be able to get some except me ! I just want two or three cans !" Y'all probably just hiding it for yourselves !"
I tell her ( while trying to hide the fact I think she's being a complete karen)
" Ma'am due to how quickly it's bought when we do have it our systems basically can't redo the numbers quick enough so I apologize but these numbers on items like Lysol currently are usually wrong. Even if you called the store it could be all gone within a few hours. "
And I guess my politeness didn't help because she threw her phone in her cart and just said " Well when the - are y'all going to have some more?!"
I shrugged And told her that we have no clue,with the high demand it may be tomorrow it may be a month, I honestly don't know but in the mean time we had another product that kills 99% of germs and what not like Lysol and it's about half the price and we have plenty in stock.
Now you coulda thought I slapped her fisrt born because she looks like i just did
" I don't want that- I want LYSOL ! L Y S O L lysol ! And i have half a mind to tell you somthing Mr. How ever you say your name ! But I ain't trying to hurt no feelings !"
At this point I'm just done and I tell her bluntly an it much she can say th as gonna bother me honestly.so she leans in and might as well been a dang snake hissing in my ear the way she said it
" You sound like a ole ' white country boy redneck and you need to stop before someone thinks your one of them while you tryin to be polite and -
She leans back with this big grin like you see on one of those liberal arts majors after they made a anti white statement or somthing. I just stared at her for a second and busted out laughing(yes I know not very professional but hay ), which seems to have caught her waaaay off guard because she stepped back like I tossed a frog on her. I told her
" Yes Ma'am I am a redneck I, live out in the woods drive a 4x4 truck hunt fish and trap and anyone in the store could tell you I don't really care what others think. Also it's not an act I was just raised to have manners "
She proceeds to look me up and down like I was insane . I offered to get her a manager to speak with if she liked and her friend just looked at her and said " look I do think you wanna mess with this man any further about some dang LYSOL!" And drug her off the whole while this look of bewilderment and confusion ran across her face.
Guess she though I was supposed to ball up and cry I got so offended or somthing lol. I get older black people telling me something similar at least every other day for some reason so generally it just kinda rolls off of me unless it's something particularly irritating or witty.
On the bright side met another trapper in lumber department and helped him get some stuff to build mink boxes was able to talk trap modding and some other stuff. Was really nice smile
Anyhow figured I share

Good job. No one should take abuse on or off the job, customer or not.
Good job sir.

People are sure enough getting frustrated. As a nation we are not used to "shortages." Jimmy Carter years and the "oil crisis" comes to mind. I don't think this is any different. Toilet paper, ammo, lysol. I wish I knew what the agenda was. The oil crisis made fuel outrageously expensive and profitable. Gave the tree huggers some credibility. I am not sure what the agenda is now.

Its a good thing the world has people like you in it wolfie. My own frustrations usually boil up dealing with people like that. Good on you for keeping your head.

Wolfdog, you will find that some people have learned to get the things they want in life by being a bully and rude.

If you continue to handle annoying situations like this you will go far in life.

I see this all the time. Some people just relish being hateful if they figure they have someone who canít say anything back. I was in line at a hardware store a few years ago when the guy in front of me was chewing out the salesman at the register for about nothing. As soon as he turned to leave I said real loudly so everyone in the store could hear ď Am I next or is this just the A hole lineĒ. But it wasnít edited. Funny the guy that was so tough just kept walking and didnít want to argue with me.

So the question remains good sir, why didn't you let that nice little-old woman buy her little-old can of Lysol?

I don't shop much ( wife dose that) or go where I have to deal with the public often but I see the same mentality on the job from other men. They want to act like a tough guy posture and act like they want to fight while at work and they know no one will call them on ot and just tear into them. On the street or at home they wouldn't dare act that way.

It happend to me 6 months ago. The boss asked me to go do this other guys job becuse he was complaining it was hard. Now the Boss comes to me often becuse I dont argue or complaint I just get it done online 98% of the rest of the crew. But this was the 3rd time that week and 4 th week of it and I had just gotten time to take a break. So I told the boss there is no reason he cant do his own job as a left to get it done.
While getting the job dont the slug didnt lime hoe I was doing it. it got to the point he got out of his equipment and was threatening to help me out of mine.

At that point I lost my composure a little I told him he was to small a man for me to loose such a high paying job but if he would like we could both clock out and drive down the road and discuss the issue further then or absolutley any time he feels the need or urge.
As expected he never took me up on my offer.

I think it is the only time they can feed their insecurity and feel like a masculine male in cases like mine. Its always the same when politely and calmly giving then the opportunity they never take it.

Good job wolf dog and thanks for sharing.
