I’ve worked at my job for a year, and I’m one of their best cashiers (I’ve gotten awards for it) and so at this point I have a lot of regulars. I’m very polite, and very quick. I take pride in my job.
I also happen to get horrible period cramps, to the point where I can’t walk. But I still have to work because they’re really understaffed.
Every time this happens I get really slow and don’t really chat as much because I’m in so much pain. I’ve cried at work because of the pain. My managers leave painkillers in my cash drawer for me.
My regulars have noticed this by now and they all tell me to feel better and take my time and try to stay hydrated and basically just try to make me laugh so I don’t feel as bad. One of my favourites actually brought me a present last week because she knew how hard it was for me to stand for eight hours straight when I’m in that much pain, and she wanted to make my day better. It really made my day tbh.
But you were a villain. Didn't you know this was going to happen eventually? You should have let her go when she still had a chance...
