Oh The Drama

Last night I received a call from the manager at work asking could I come in. Seems there was a "situation" and the one that was suppose to close after I left wasn't there to do it. I told him I would but it would take about 45 minutes to get there and he said to just tell him what to do to close the department. I explained it to him. He called later with questions. I called back to check about 10pm. I asked would she be there in the morning to open with me, he said he wasn't sure. I went early just in case and I knew there would be a mess to straighten out as well as a trunk show to get ready for on top of a big diamond sale that had started. I was right! What a mess they made putting up merchandise! I saw the her briefly in the morning. She went to tend to something and never came back. The store manager stopped by while I was setting up the cases and so did lost prevention, asking that I confirm the counts and let them know what it was when finished. I took care of all this and customers alone in the department till 2pm. It appears we are short a pair of diamond earrings worth $2,500.00. No manager would tell me exactly what was going on or what transpired last night that prompted the call to me. Today before I left, the manager asked if I could open tomorrow. The other woman was suppose to. I guess we may be short a full time person now. Hummmm.......

I hope you took advantage of the situation and grabbed something for yourself that she'll take the blame for. Just kidding. It always amazed me how many people thought they could steal and not get caught!

Hmmm, you were just saying you wanted a FT position. Sometimes fate works in your favor . . . be the *dependable* one now, and I bet more good things come your way.
