Woman Accused The Wrong Person Of Stealing Her Necklace

(I work as an usher at a local theater, and one of my duties is to clean up the theater once It lets out. I am also African American.)

My Manager: answering the phone “Hello? This is [Manager]. How can I help you?”

Customer: ‘’Yes, I was at the theater the other day, and I lost my necklace. I think that black usher must’ve taken it.”

Manager: “Okay, ma’am. I’m sorry you lost your necklace, but I’m pretty sure he didn’t take it.”

Customer: “But he’s always cleaning out the theaters once the movie is over. He had to have come across it. You know how these people are.”

Manager: “Yes, that’s his job, and anything he finds, he turns in up front.”

Customer: “Just confront him about it. I’m pretty sure that he has it.”

(A few days later, she calls back.)

Manager: “Hello, this is [Manager] How can I help you?”

Customer: “Yes. I would like to apologize. I called the other day about losing a necklace, and I thought that your usher took it. Turns out it was at the bottom of my purse the whole time.”

Manager: “Ah, I see. . .”

Customer: ‘Um. . . he didn’t get into any trouble over this, did he?’

Manager: “No, because I trust him.”

(He didn’t even tell me about any of this until some time later.)
