I have to say she did do a good job of putting the wishy washy pagen in her place.

But then that's what she gets for jumping to a conclusion without a net.

I guess he could get her on being "too grumpy"...

THAT is a very good question. On one hand...Penny was very rude. On the other hand, Penny was very rude to Beltaine.

I think it would depend on whether Penny is a temp hire, permanent hire, or family. Oh, wait, she's family which means she gets neither because she's working there in order to fulfill a family obligation.

Now, be fair: Beltane made a social blunder by opening with "sister" when the target displays no Wiccan symbols. If anything, the cross earring should've been a warning, assuming one knows nothing about the neo-Gothic subculture. (That seems to be a safe assumption here; greeting a neo-Goth in any cheery fashion is an automatic social blunder anyway.)

(Sub-note: Beltane's greeting was appropriate only if greeting a Wiccan. Otherwise, it is overly familiar at best.)

But, be equally fair: As Ben pointed out, this is his business; Penny needlessly antagonized a potential customer, as well as making blatant insinuations about the nature of the greeting. Whatever his feelings about Beltane, and however faux-Wiccan she may be, that still doesn't excuse Penny's behavior.

Short-term: A reprimand. No long-term unless she makes this a habit. Remember, she's required to help out in the arcade, but she does get paid for it. That makes her an employee, same as the others, and that means they can tell her what to do until and unless she gets another job.

Yours truly,

The wolfish,

I agree she should be reprimanded. She's not be nice with a potential customer. I still wonder why Beltane came here but it's not the point. As annoying that a customer can be you have to be respectfull towards it.

C'est le mauvais côté de travailler avec le public.

S.P.P.

I think the appropriate response here is "Bad Penny. Don't be rude to customers again. Here, have a small bonus."

The fact that Ben promptly apologized on her behalf tells me that she is not going to be rewarded.

Might I say, I'm not used to seeing Beltane cheerful, even fleetingly.

OOoooo, Florence King would love her. :twisted:

But a customer is still a customer. Especially if the customer was trying to be nice.

Is sales training part of Goblin Hollow's business plan?

"Merry met"? What, does she simply assume that everyone she meets is drunk?

As for Penny, it's time she was set down in front of her favorite ice cream snack and made to think about what she did.

Should it be served in a skull-shaped bone-white mug with

Hehehehe! Well, the big thing I see is that in the pigeoen scenario the target was actually doing something illigal so he was fair game. ;)

I dun' think we've seen everything Beltane's complaining about.

Matter of fact, I'd like to think this is just prelude. We haven't even gotten to the good part yet.

But could someone please explain the whole "winning a toaster off my behind" bit to me? I'm feeling dense today.
