Adrian's favorite store was the $1 Store. This store had everything, from fresh produce to birthday cards to gasoline additives. Everything was one dollar. Usually, he got very good deals; occasionally, he got ripped off.

A few days ago, Adrian bought six packages of ink for his printer. Then he found a deal on better ink at the local computer store. So Adrian went back to the $1 Store to exchange the ink for some other items.

He put the ink into a plastic bag and tied it up. When he entered the store, he immediately showed the bag to a clerk and told her that he was returning some items. She looked at him but said nothing. There were about ten people in her line. She was obviously very busy. Not knowing exactly what to do, Adrian put the bag into a push-cart and started shopping.

He was midway through shopping when a female employee suddenly stopped him. "Sir," she said sternly, "you are not allowed to carry a plastic bag of items around in this store. What's in this bag? Show me what's in the bag!"

Adrian was taken aback. There was no need for her to yell. He opened the bag and showed her the six packages of ink. "I'm returning these to exchange for some other items," Adrian said.

"You should have left the bag with the clerk when you entered this store. Let me see your receipt!" the employee demanded.

Adrian was embarrassed. He felt like a shoplifter. He looked around to see if anyone was paying attention. He showed her the receipt.

"Perhaps in the future you'll learn how to follow store policy. Leave this bag here with the clerk. You can have your receipt and bag back when you check out."

By the time Adrian had finished shopping and exchanged the items, he was angry. How dare she treat him like a criminal? He went looking for her. He wanted an apology. He found her in the produce section and asked what her name was. She mumbled something. He asked her again, and this time he heard "Ursula."

"Ursula what?" he asked. She yelled at him, "Ursula!" and stormed away.

When Adrian got home, he called the store's corporate headquarters. This rude employee was about to lose her job, he said to himself. He described his unpleasant experience to a customer service representative. She was sympathetic. "Our employees are taught to be polite. We will not tolerate such behavior. Give me your phone number and I will call you back."

Two days later, Adrian received a phone call from the representative. "I'm sorry," she said, "but there's no one at that store named Ursula. Can you describe her? I'll find out who she is. I assure you, we do not tolerate rude behavior, nor do we tolerate lying to customers."

By this time, Adrian had calmed down. He didn't really want the employee to lose her job. He told the representative to forget about it.

Kiểm tra túi của bạn ở lối vào cửa tiệm

Cửa hàng yêu thích của Adrian là cửa hàng $1. Cửa hàng này có mọi thứ, từ những sản phẩm mới sản xuất đến thiệp sinh nhật đến phụ gia cho xăng. Mọi thứ đều giá một đô la. Thường, anh có nhiều vụ mua bán tốt; thi thoảng, anh bị lột sạch.

Vài ngày trước, Adrian mua sáu hộp mực cho máy in của mình. Rồi anh thấy có bán mực tốt hơn ở cửa hàng máy tính địa phương. Nên Adrian quay lại cửa hàng $1 để đổi mực cho những thứ khác.

Anh bỏ mực trong túi nhựa và cột lại. Khi vào cửa hàng, anh lập tức chìa túi ra cho nhân viên bán hàng và bảo cô là anh trả lại vài món hàng. Cô nhìn anh nhưng chẳng nói gì. Có khoảng mười người đang xếp hàng chổ cô. Cô rõ ràng đang rất bận. Chẳng biết phải làm gì, Adrian bỏ túi lên xe đẩy và bắt đầu mua hàng.

Anh đang mua giữa chừng thì một nữ nhân viên bỗng dừng anh lại. "Ông," cô nói nghiêm khắc, "ông không được phép mang túi chứa đồ trong cửa hàng. Cái túi này có gì ở trong? Cho tôi xem có gì bên trong túi!"

Adrian lui lại. Không có gì để cô phải la lên. Anh mở túi và cho cô ấy xem sáu hộp mực. "Tôi trả lại những thứ này để đổi những thứ khác," Adrian nói.

"Anh phải để cái túi này ngoài chổ thu ngân khi vào cửa hàng. Cho tôi xem hoá đơn của anh!" nhân viên yêu cầu.

Adrian bối rối. Anh cảm thấy như là kẻ cắp trong cửa hàng. Anh nhìn quanh xem có ai để ý không. Anh cho cô ta xem hoá đơn.

"Có thể trong tương lai anh học được cách làm đúng qui định của cửa hàng. Hãy để cái túi này với cô thu ngân. Anh có thể lấy lại hoá đơn và túi khi đi ra."

Lúc Adrian mua xong và đổi xong đồ, anh tức giận. Làm sao cô ta dám đối xử với anh như tội phạm? Anh đi tìm cô ấy. Anh muốn cô xin lỗi. Anh thấy cô trong quầy sản xuất và hỏi tên cô. Cô lầm bầm cái gì đó. Anh hỏi cô lần nữa, và lần này anh nghe "Ursula."

"Ursula gì?" anh hỏi. Cô la lên, "Urshula!" và xông đi mất.

Khi Adrian về nhà, anh gọi trung tâm của cửa hàng. Cô nhân viên thô lỗ này sắp mất việc, anh tự nhủ. Anh mô tả sự không hài lòng với nhân viên đại diện dịch vụ khách hàng. Cô rất thông cảm. "Nhân viên của chúng tôi được huấn luyện lịch sự. Chúng tôi sẽ không tha thứ cho thái độ như vậy. Hãy cho tôi số điện thoại của anh và tôi sẽ gọi lại cho anh."

Hai ngày sau, Adrian nhận được điện thoại từ người đại diện. "Tôi xin lỗi," cô nói, "nhưng không có ai ở cửa hàng tên Ursula. Anh có thể tả cô ấy không? Tôi sẽ tìm cô ấy là ai. Tôi đảm bảo với anh, chúng tôi không tha thứ cho tính thô lỗ, chúng tôi cũng không tha thứ việc nói dối khách hàng."

Lúc này, Adrian đã bình tĩnh lại. Anh thật sự không muốn người nhân viên bị mất việc. anh bảo người đại diện thôi quên điều đó đi.

Cửa hàng ưa thích của Andrian là cửa hàng 1 đô-la. Cửa hàng này có tất cả mọi thứ, từ sản phẩm tươi sống đến thiệp sinh nhật đến phụ gia xăng dầu. Tất cả mọi thứ với giá một đô-la. Thường thường, anh giao dịch mua bán rất tốt; thỉnh thoảng, anh lại bị bắt chẹt.

Cách đây vài ngày, Adrian mua sáu gói mực cho cái máy in của mình. Sau đó anh phát hiện mực được bán với giá tốt hơn tại một cửa hàng vi tính trong khu vực. Vì thế Adrian đi trở lại cửa hàng 1 đô-la để đổi mực in sang các mặt hàng khác.

Anh bỏ mực in vào một chiếc túi nhựa và cột nó lại. Khi anh đi vào cửa hàng, anh đưa cho cô bán hàng xem tức thì và bảo với cô là anh trả lại một số món hàng. Cô nhìn anh nhưng không nói gì. Có khoảng mười người trong dãy của cô. Thực tình thì cô rất bận rộn. Không biết chính xác mình phải làm gì, Adrian bỏ chiếc túi vào một chiếc xe đẩy và bắt đầu mua hàng.

Anh đang mua sắm giữa chừng khi một nữ nhân viên đột ngột chặn anh lại. "Thưa ông" cô nói một cách nghiêm khắc, "ông không được phép mang túi hàng hoá loanh quanh trong cửa hàng. Có thứ gì trong túi? Đưa tôi xem có thứ gì trong túi!"

Adrian sửng sốt. Cô ta đâu cần phải la lối như thế chứ. Anh mở túi và đưa cô xem sáu hộp mực. "Tôi đang trả lại loại hàng này để đổi lấy các mặt hàng khác," Adrian nói.

"Ông phải để chiếc túi ở chỗ nhân viên bán hàng khi ông vào cửa hàng. Đưa hoá đơn cho tôi xem!" cô nhân viên ra lệnh.

Adrian thật ngượng ngùng. Anh cảm giác như mình là một kẻ cắp ở cửa hàng. Anh nhìn xung quanh để xem có ai để ý hay không. Anh đưa cô xem tờ hoá đơn.

"Có lẽ về sau này ông nên thực hiện theo nội quy của cửa hàng. Hãy để cái túi ở đây cho nhân viên thu ngân. Ông có thể nhận lại hoá đơn và túi lúc ông tính tiền xong."

Vào lúc Adrian mua sắm và đổi hàng xong xuôi, anh vẫn còn bực tức. Sao cô ta dám đối xử với anh như một tên tội phạm thế kia chứ? Anh đi tìm cô. Anh cần một lời xin lỗi. Anh thấy cô ở trong khu vực sản xuất và hỏi cô tên gì. Cô lầm bầm điều gì đó. Anh hỏi lại lần nữa, và lần này anh nghe "Ursula."

"Ursula gì chứ?" anh hỏi. Cô ta nạt lại anh, "Ursula" và giận dữ bỏ đi.

Khi Adrian về nhà, anh gọi cho cơ quan chủ quản của cửa hàng. Cô nhân viên khiếm nhã sắp mất việc đến nơi rồi đây, anh tự nhủ. Anh diễn tả kinh nghiệm không vui của mình cho nhân viên chăm sóc khách hàng. Cô tỏ vẻ thông cảm. "Các nhân viên của chúng tôi được huấn luyện phải tao nhã. Chúng tôi không chấp nhận một hành vi như thế. Hãy cho tôi biết số điện thoại và tôi sẽ gọi lại cho anh."

Hai ngày sau, Adrian nhận được cuộc gọi từ nhân viên chăm sóc khách hàng. "Tôi xin lỗi anh," cô nói, "Nhưng không có người nào ở cửa hàng đó có tên là Urrsula cả. Anh có thể miêu tả cô ấy được không? Tôi sẽ biết được cô ấy là ai. Tôi cam đoan với anh, chúng tôi không dung thứ cho hành vi thô lỗ, chúng tôi cũng không tha thứ cho việc dối trá với khách hàng."

Vào lúc này, Adrian đã bình tĩnh trở lại. Anh thật tình không muốn cô nhân viên ấy bị mất việc. Anh bảo cô nhân viên chăm sóc khách hàng hãy quên chuyện đó đi.

@quynhnhu: Trong tiếng Anh check có nghĩa là kiểm tra, theo bài này cũng có nghĩa là gửi lại.

LH chưa từng đến Mỹ nhưng có đi làm, khi vào khách sạn người ta dùng từ check-in.

Xem ra người cũng là một dạng "hàng hoá".:)
