Just Another Day at Work

“So, you’re saying…that I shouldn’t buy this?” the woman asked for the millionth time.

“No!” I practically screamed as I wiped the sweat from my brow. I could feel my stomach aching and my head pounding, “I mean yes!

“Does the toaster oven work?” she asked, wide-eyed.

“Yea-no! Yes, it should!” I could have fallen on my knees and begged her to just buy the piece of crap, but my mouth went off once again, “But it doesn’t work, I know, because I can’t lie and you shouldn’t buy this because you’re going to return it anyways, and the manager is going talk you into buying another bigger item and then it’ll be hell to pay in my debt!”

I could have sworn the entire aisle had gone to complete silence, and all that was needed was a tiny little cricket to chirp.

Damn, and I had thought for those first few minutes I had woken up this morning, that I could just possible be living in a fairy world.
How far away was I from the truth…?
I wasn’t supposed to be working in a store anyway.
