When I used to work in a customer service department at a grocery and at a clothing store many customers would ask me often “Do you guys have more of this ?(holding that product/merchandise in their hands and showing it to
me)”.My throwaway answer to that chewed up question would always be “Whatever we have is out there on the sales floor” .I know most of the times my answer was wrong meaning we sure had more of that in the stock.But why should
I take time out and go above and beyond my job duties and go to the stock room and look for something if I don’t have to or more so I don’t want to especially when I know that I am not going to get paid extra either by
employer or by a customer.
