This happened earlier this morning.
I work for a dairy distributer that supplies restaurants and grocery stores with milk, cream, etc.
We get to one of our first stops, a small coffee shop at 6:30 am and always walk in the back door, drop off their order, leave a receipt and bounce.
NOT TODAY! It's cold as shit today so my partner and I are wearing hoodies over our uniforms, as we get to the door it's locked.
Frustrated we try to yank, bang on the door so they'll let us in for about 5 minutes or so.
About when we were gonna say fuck it, we turn around to two cop cars flying into the parking lot, they jump out start screaming at us to freeze, hands up etc.
they do a full felony stop on us because we were reported as burglars.
Turns out the coffee shop had a new opener today, a 20 year old college girl who (rightfully so) mistook us for two burly, shady looking thugs trying to break in.
It took about 30 minutes and half dozen phone calls but it's all sorted out now.
Our boss told us to come back ASAP where we were just given strikes for 1) not wearing appropriate uniform 2) violating professional protocol which doesn't include loudly banging on
the retailers locked door.
It was also 'strongly recommended' we write an apology to the shop employee we frightened this morning.
TL:DR-tried to deliver milk to coffee shop, get mistaken for a burglar, cops point guns, slap on handcuffs, but quickly let us leave, formally written up by management.
EDIT: I'm surprised Reddit didn't get me strike 3, cause you fucks blew this post up!
Yes we had cold weather clothes provided, but it wasn't strictly enforced this time of year so we wore our own shit.
This sub is about how I/WE f'd up yesterday so I'm not looking to pass blame off on anyone, but appreciate how some of you were in our corner.
P.s. Also, glad this post gave the guys with milkmen usernames their overdue chance to shine:)
