Corpse Run 160: Eye of the beholder



It's 2:14am, I haven't slept at all today, and I'm still pretty beat from Black Friday... none of which is really an adequate explanation for the strangeness you saw above...

On Sundays, I'll often set one or two TVs to the football games so customers (and myself) can keep an eye on the scores throughout the day. There was, however, one lone middle-aged man (let's call him Bob) who was bent on throwing a wrench into our weekly tradition.

The guy wanted to view one of the TVs playing the Jets game, but demanded I changed the channel first so he wouldn't see the score (he was recording it). I figured what the heck, and changed the channel.

Then, the rudeness started. I was with another customer when Bob pulled me away and would not let me go. I asked Bob to wait his turn, but he was having none of it. From that moment on, he was incredibly nasty to me while we were talking, and shooing away other customers who were standing between him and the TVs.

Another employee walked by.

"Hey Alex, where's the game?"

"Oh I changed the channel, this gentleman here (Bob) is trying to avoid hearing the score so he can watch the replay at home.

"Oh, the score's 21-21." Said, the employee.

Bob was furious. I was thrilled.




I laugh loud reading this comic, the picture itself is fun, I just hope this will continue. - JustFab

My husband got a job and they want motorcycle license test answers him to transfer his CDL. We just need to know how much it is because the DPS office is too far to drive to just go in and ask. If you know, please feel free to answer this!.

Thanks!  Glad to know that someone out there reads my strip!


Also, I'm thrilled to learn that you are a pleasant customer to deal with; guys like you are a welcome change to the ones that make banging my head against a wall desireable.  

I just made this account to say that I really enjoy your comic, and I enjoy your retail store stories even more! I mean, it's pretty insane what you have to go through every day. I'm glad that I've always been polite with employees in these kind of retail chains, even to the point that I try to avoid bothering them because I always think they're probably doing something important that would be disrupted should they be accosted by a mere client like me.
