It appears I have become persona non grata at the charity shop, kind of.
I went in yesterday and the manager was kind of friendly in the way she is with customers but also a little bit distant, which is unusual. Then there was the general gossip and chatter, none of which I was involved in. So I just got on with the cleaning I'd started last week. One of the other volunteers said to me "If no-one else is going so say it then I'll say you're doing a good job with that cleaning" a couple of customers agreed and then the manager came over and said "I do appreciate it you know..." I think I heard a but in there somewhere!
She warmed up a little then, but there's still a certain something I can't quite put my finger on, it's just not quite the same as it was. The only thing I can think of is that I let her down when I couldn't go in to keep an eye on things the day after I hurt my knee. I offered to do extra jobs, I've been told it's not necessary but then the manager has been complaining of not having enough people or time to do the work.
I haven't even told Dan, there's no point, I already know what he'd say. When it comes down to it, it's not my problem and not me who is struggling. You can't please all of the people all of the time so I'm not going to think about the place until next week when I go again. Easy peasy.
