One of the Lucys was a real peach, she was always ready to point out mistakes or look down on you past her ridiculous reading glasses perched on the end of her witch nose… I ran into her a local cafe after her Mom has passed away about 6 month after my getting laid off. (I wasn’t bitter I mean I completely understand after only 4 years of working together to have my name spelled wrong on my dismissal papers that my boss had completed was an added insult to injury right?!?) So I say I was sorry to hear of her Mom’s passing it must have happened quickly. She goes on to correct me that no it wasn’t quick. Regardless of the details I was not her employee for the past 6 months it wasn’t her place to still be correcting me anymore. As with any kind remark the answer should be thank s or gratitude.
Lucy is a also a huge Sons of Anarchy fan. She usually actually watches it twice live and loves to spoil it for anyone who didn’t watch it. Yesterday she was recapping it for a co-worker and got lost in the story so I jumped in to clarify something, which Lucy quickly took back over to tell my why I was wrong. This was super interesting since one I had watched the show and two I had read the recap online.
I think my favorite Lucy story is someone called her out for not liking their color so they were not doing business at the shop. Lucy who doesn’t seem to understand in 2014 we keep our racist comments to ourselves in a management meeting no less told us all how shocked she was! I almost died listening to the crazy hypocrite carry on. She ended by telling the customer that she had recently hung out with a black man and that the shop is located in the ‘hood. I still to this day am amazed when I pull up to work and there are no protesters out front
