One of my customers told me she shaved her dog, which is bad because it prevents the dog from being able to keep cool. When I said that, she told me her vet recommended it and she'd been a vet for eight years, graduated from A&M. I started to say that didn't mean she was right, but I could tell she was getting defensive. So I mentioned that my son worked with dogs and showed her his card.
Apparently, she either called the store later or talked to one of the supervisors before she left because I got called into "the office" and was warned not to step over the line or to promote my son's "grooming" business...which it isn't.
No one else has ever resented my giving out my son's cards but this lady was just upset because I questioned her vet's judgment. I could tell as she left my lane that she was a bit put out and I expected trouble...and I got it.
I am SO ready to get out of there and the way Target kisses the customer's behind all the time.
