First Job Story

Savvy Community: I Had to Return... a Smoothie

This story was shared by SavvySugar reader HeyKristen in our Wacky Work Stories group.

When I was a lowly assistant at my first job, most of my job meant doing absolutely anything the boss asked. From running her calendar to answering her phone, parking her car, picking up the kids... anything was fair game. But one day, she took it to a whole new level when she asked me to return a smoothie.

I bought the smoothie in question, and she left it on her desk as she got pulled into an unexpected meeting. When she came out of the meeting the smoothie had congealed (as I expect smoothies do) into a weird, layered, gross-looking drink. As she asked me to return it for a replacement, I thought she was joking. Once I realized she was serious, I took the smoothie outside, dumped it in the garbage, spent $5 of my own money buying a new one, and cut my losses. Happy boss, and (mostly) happy assistant — at least, five years later, I have a great story to tell.
