Tuesday Teaser

Just a quick tease this morning! Hope the day is good to you! 

Christmas Eve…
“Do you think you have this in a size 16 in the back?”
Lanie took a deep breath. A smartly dressed business woman stood in front of her holding a pair of black slacks. Her teeth clenched and she forced a tight smile.
“No, ma’am, all our inventory is on the sales floor.”
“Could you just check?”
Her nails bit into her palms and she closed her eyes. She took a deep breath and held her smile in place. There were twelve people waiting in line.


  1. lol... Did I capture the moment? I was channeling my retail working friends! lol

  2. LOL, I've seen sales people handle this by walking into the back and then coming right back out again. "Sorry, ma'am. We don't have any more of that item in the back."
