"Sure," I say, because I love dreaming up visual displays. Unfortunately, that particular day was very busy due to a downtown "Wine Walk" event, so I don't have a chance to do anything but strip down the old display. The window was basically empty. It looked terrible.
I came in the next day for my shift, figuring I'd finish the window that afternoon. As we're switching out, my coworker Buddy and I have the following conversation:
Buddy: Hey, have you met Cindy?
Me: Cindy who?
Buddy: The new employee.
Me: ...I didn't even know we had a new hire. When did she start?
Buddy: I don't know, [Boss] said that she'd be doing the windows.
Me: ...are you sure that she didn't say 'Suzi'? Because when I talked to her last night, I was doing the windows.
Buddy: No, she definitely said Cindy.
Buddy: I'm sure of it.
So I don't touch the windows.
I popped into the store on Sunday to pick up a roll of red paper that I needed for an art project. I notice the window hasn't been touched. Steve, the husband boss, is at the register.
Me: So...like, do you want me to come in tonight and finish the window?
Steve: Yes! We don't have anyone else to do it.
I come in after hours, I do a pretty bang-up job getting the window looking awesome, I go home to bed.
The next day, when I arrive to set up for the Hobbit Day party, Buddy and I have the following conversation:
Buddy: Have you seen the window?
Me: Yes, I-
Buddy: Cindy did an amazing job!
Me: Thanks. That was me. Suzi.
Buddy: What happened to Cindy?
But yes, it did turn out pretty well, I think.
