One of my favourite volunteers at the shop, was ever so obliging in showing me stuff and was even pulling out other pieces knowing the kind of things I like. Then another volunteer second all up in arms I was being shown things. We will call my favourite volunteer Beautiful B, piped up to the other volunteer saying, if it’s going to another location to be sold anyway and Trudie’s willing to buy it (for the asking price), what’s the problem?
I can’t really tell you how or why things went down hill from there, but it resulted in both volunteers heading off outside and next door to the hairdressers where the shop boss was having her hair cut. Thankfully the shop boss knows me well, but I had no way of stopping how quickly the said incident happened and the upset it caused, between the two staff. I left with some goodies in hand and with an agreement that I may be interested in other items if they aren’t sold on the weekend and they are willing to split up the items I’m interested in.
The incident resulted in Beautiful B going home for the day, because she was annoyed by the rudeness of the other volunteer towards her and she couldn’t be bothered dealing with it. Thankfully Beautiful B knows I adore her and I gave her a kiss and cuddle on leaving and wished her the best for the rest of the day.
Perhaps I should bake a cake or scones or something and drop them into the shop next week as a peace offering, what do you think?
Has your op shopping or thrifting caused any major incidents?
