Fun Among Us

Sat 12/29 morning before the Driscoll family Christmas. Santa will be attending and parents are responsible for filling his sack

Heidi walks into the store alone. Usually, Heidi has three in tow and today is extra nice.
After shopping stress free she approaches the cashier and is accosted.

An effeminate, middle age man holds the position, while he tally's up Heidi's gifts he informs her that when she enters the store, with her high energy kids, all of the store clerks Head For The Hills! Heidi is high maintenance, the staff does not appreciate it, or her business. He is just telling her because he likes to be truthful.

Monday, 12/31 New Years Eve, I get out of work early and head straight to Fun Among Us.
I ask the woman at the desk if the man who was on duty Saturday is present.
He is not, so I ask if she is his boss, she is, her name is Eileen. When I tell her the story she is floored and apologizes. She will call the owner, Elizabeth, and make her aware of Jared's behavior.

That evening Eileen calls the house, apologizes and relates other stories of Jared's poor behavior.

Heidi feels a lot better.

Wednesday 1/2/2008

I returned to Fun Among Us to ask Jared what his intentions were, when he offended my wife.
Jared was not there, turns out he called in sick.
Elizabeth the owner was there and she told me the "Story of Jared" and that he has been at the store, hanging on by a string, for awhile now.
She would fire him today but she does not know how to go about it. She needed the body for the holidays and now he is no longer needed. Elizabeth is afraid that he will sue her.
He has (asbirgers?) disease and has been offending people, not customers, since he started. He works there as a favor to a friend. He is scheduled to be leaving for Florida in a couple of weeks.

Until then Elizabeth plans on reducing the number of hours he works at the store naturally.
Elizabeth gave me a gift certificate, is going to document Jared poor behaviors and work towards his removal from the store.

The owner and her staff did a great job handling me and the situation initiated by her employee. Heidi will continue to shop at Fun Among Us, as long as Jared is not behind the counter. Hopefully she will never see him again. If I see him I hope I don't punch him in the nose.
