How can she walk into my store, look at me, and say “Well look who it is?” Exactly, look who it is. The guy you dumped. The guy who you dated, not once, but twice, and still decided it wasn’t worth it. The guy who put everything on hold just to spend some time with you. The guy who fought to keep the relationship going, even when things were going downhill. The guy who told you the truth, instead of filling your head with lies just to be with you for one night. The guy who thought everything would work out in the end, but it didn’t. Look who it is. And now, with heartbreaking memories of false love, and isolated nights, with tears he keeps to himself, he looks back at you and says…
We were packed at work. A lot of customers out of nowhere. And that’s when I realized I was helping a LOT of people. I shouldn’t have been, because there should have been 3 of us in that section of the store. I looked to my manager, “Hey, why does it feel like I’m the only one here?” He looked to me. “No, Ethan is behind you working the other desk.” I looked behind me to Ethan who was working as hard as I was. “Hey Ethan, shouldn’t there be 3 of us here? Where’s the other guy?” I could barely hear him over all the hustle of the store “He left man. He got sick or something.”
Now the guy who left isn’t very…reliable. It seems like he leaves at least once every month because he gets “sick” or something. Seriously he misses/leaves work 12 times a year. I constantly wonder how he’s still employed. After 30 minutes or so I hear Ethan’s voice “Hey I’m hanna go help the other department, they’re about to close and they need the help.” Why the hell would he leave? “No man, I’m the only one here and we’re hanna get busy again.” He looked at me with a smile “Oh you’ll be ok man.”
I was the only one in my section of the store, and 5 minutes after Ethan left, it was busy again. I was alone. My manager came up to me in the middle of an order, “Hey I know you’re the only one but do your best tonight. I’ll be here, just not in this department.” He left.
I was the only one for an hour and a half, and when we were closing I was helping my last customer. I was just confused how my manager thought it would be ok if Ethan left me alone. It’s been one of the worst work experiences I’ve had in a long time.
It was hard as fuck also, because it’s a japanese band so I could ONLY order it from japan. The cd has been out of stock for around 3 months…pretty sure it’ll be sold out again within a week O.o
