Rating: 2/5

Adam Levine stands at the counter, watching the clock on the wall. Only one more hour and then he can go home. It had been a long eight hours. Two customers shouted at him that they gave him the wrong clothes. Another customer said her dress was damaged and that she was going to sue them. Levine shrugged it off.

He put his phone down as he heard the door open and greeted Big Boi. Big Boi began playing with the bell as if were a toy. Levine scolds him and tells him enough. He had mentioned to the owners about getting rid of the bell. However, they stated it was necessary in case everyone was in the back and a customer needed to get their attention. Levine fiddles it with during slow periods, trying to break it. However, a customer walks in every time.

Levine gets Big Boi’s name and starts the search. He looks at the clock and realizes he’s already 45 minutes over his shift. He throws his head back by a pile of clothes. thinking of all the traffic he’s going to hit now on the way home. After an hour, he tells Big Boi sorry and places the blame on the women in the back. Then, as it turns out, Big Boi didn’t know where he was. It was an hour wasted and he isn’t going to get paid overtime for it. Levine clocks out the moment Big Boi turns to leave.
