WTFness and Yayness

Today was a day of ups and downs. Or more precisely, a down then an up.

Firstly, I got to deal with my first sucky customer.

A man wanted to buy a little shell trinket box thing, so I rang it up, he gave me some money and then when I tried to input the amount I managed to press the wrong button and the till beeped at me in annoyance. I tried to fix it, but just ended up making it worse. I haven't worked there long and the till is so old we don't have any easy way to void mistakes so I went to the back to ask someone to help me. S came out and I explained what I'd done. He asked what the man had bought and at this point the man pulled the box out of his back, threw it on the counter and demanded his money back. (I was still holding the 50p he gave me) I gave it to him, feeling quite bewildered, and he started ranting about us accusing him of being a thief. He continued his ranting, saying how rude we were as he walked to the door. Meanwhile S was explaining to him that we were doing nothing of the sort and that he hadn't done anything rude. At this point the man pointed to me and said "but she was, she was damn rude" and left.

My mum says he must have had a guilty conscience, that's the only reason he would immediately jump to the thief conclusion. Unless he thinks that we have some kind of secret shop code where "I made a mistake on the till" translates as "THIEF! THIEF!"

But the good news, I have two more rats. Mum and I got them after I left work. They are so cute, and it worked out so well. There were three of them, but I only wanted two - specifically the two black and white ones - and I felt so guilty about leaving the third girl by herself that I was thinking about getting her as well, but before I was able to say anything about which ones I wanted, one of the girls there said that she really wanted to take the grey one home. So it all worked out perfectly! Especially since the black and white ones both came up to greet me and Mum while the grey one stayed in their house.

They don't have names yet. I'm letting them explore their new home for a bit and get adjusted to it before I disturb them too much by asking them what they're called.
