So this story is from a few years back so it’s basically the best I can remember.also I’m super dyslexic so sorry for any spelling/grammer mistakes.
So I took my grandma to one of her favorite green houses to get flowers and some other gardening supplies. My grandma is in her 70’s and sometimes needs to hold on to me if she gets lightheaded because at the time she refused to use her walker.
My grandma see’s a decorative pot on the top shelf she wanted. The shelf had a sign saying please ask for assistance to get items off the top shelf. So I tell her that I can find her a employee but they were all busy so I quickly grab the pot and put it in her cart we start to walk off.
As I’m walking away I feel a slight tug on my jacket and I see this old lady looking up at me and asked if I could also get her one of the decorative pots. I tell her that I’m sorry but im not a employee but I can ask to get you one. She looks around and says” I did ask for some help awhile ago but I haven’t had any help yet would you please just put one in my cart to please?.
I figured why not and reached up grabbed her the pot she wanted and put it in her cart the shelf they were on was barely 6′ high and I could easily reach up and get anything off it with ease. After I put it in her cart and she tanks me. Then we hear a angry voice behind us “can’t you read the sign” apparently a actually employee saw what i did and wasn’t happy.
She started giving me a talking to about how I can’t just do whatever I want and how if I wanted something from the top shelf I had to tell a employee and wait for them to get the step ladder. The old lady piped up and told the actually employee that she did ask and had been waiting for about 10 minutes and this helpful young man was willing to help me out and not just ignore her like some of the actual employees did because they were busy.
At this point my grandma was wondering where I had gone to and came back to find me. She told the employee that seniors like them have trouble standing and waiting for long periods and that young people who are willing to help are a saving grace. After the both of them started defending me the employee let it go but she did tell me that if I do something like that she would ban me from the greenhouse.
