Acgh! I was just mean to a kid and now I feel really guilty.
Kid: Hi. I know you checked already but do you mind double checking for my pea coat in the lost and found?
Me: I mean. We don’t have it.
Kid: Okay. It’s just, my keys are in the pocket…
I huff and puff and walk the six inches to the lost and found cabinet and make a big show of looking for his pea coat, which is clearly not there.
Me: Yeah, sorry, I’m pretty sure if there was a pea coat here I’d see it.
Kid: Okay. Thanks.
Kid exits office, forlorn.
Why must I be so rude? I have some bad karma coming to me. I can feel it.
