Pit, tell me how much trouble I'm in.

So I work at a retail grocery store stocking shelves. A customer was getting bitched at by his wife on the phone about which probiotic he should buy. This carried on for a good 10 minutes. The customer asked if I would take the 2 items to his car and let his wife read the ingredients. My dumbass said yes. She read them and decided after a few very long minutes, during which I realized that I screwed up pretty bad. After she picked which one she wanted, we both walked back in the store with the items. Afterwards he said, "thank you____, I'll be sure to fill out a survey and put a good word in!"

There are numerous cameras around the store, in front of every entrance, and even an undercover security guard patrolling the store at all times. I worked for 2 hours after that and no one said anything. I didn't see any managers around and nobody seemed to even notice. So did I get away with extreme stupidity, or if the guy says too much in the survey... am I gonna get bit in the ass for this? I told my mom and she flipped shit, and wondered how she raised such a dumbass. I'm stressing out now.

I know this much, but on the information given. Is this a likely case?

Erik is right, which as someone who once worked at a grocery store, is actually a good thing.

Do you believe I'd lose my job? Or will this go under the radar?

Hopefully you should be fine. I mean getting fired over a mental fart would suck.

It's not worth losing your job over. But you might lose your job over it, so make it worth it.

Steal everything.

Because you seem genuinely nervous, I'll give a genuine answer. I doubt you'll be outright fired. Most likely will get a talk from a supervisor if management is halfway decent. Explain your side if/when they talk to you and you should be alright.

surely since you didn't steal anything or assist a costumer in stealing anything, the most they'll do is tell you that you shouldn't bring inventory out of the store again.

Because it may have looked like he was taking stuff to her and giving it to her without her paying for it.

I find that you can't see what's wrong with this from a business perspective amusing

You're not going to lose your job.

Worst thing that could happen is possibly getting a write up for it, but I doubt that will even happen. They will probably give you a slap on the wrist and tell you not to do it again.

I worked at a grocery store for 5 years and did shit like this all the time. You'll be fine.

more likely is they won't ever say shit and didn't care...
