I was working on Thursday afternoon and my boss pulled me to the side for a couple of minutes.
She advised me that a special customer contacted the Chicago marijuana dispensary for delivery.
The customer placed the order online and it was supposed to be a discreet delivery. My boss told me that she had been thinking about me for a management position and this was my opportunity to prove to her that I was a team player and could handle the responsibilities of the job. I promised her that I would make the delivery and keep the name and address of the recipient a secret. We frequently have calls from some of the famous people that live around the Chicago area. This was something a little bit different. A rock and roll band was playing at the theater and they requested marijuana products from the Chicago dispensary. The rock and roll band has an image to maintain, but they were playing in a state with legal recreational marijuana, so they weren’t doing anything illegal. My boss promised me a raise and a promotion soon if I could keep this transaction a secret. I delivered the items to the band. I didn’t even know who it was until I saw the name of the band on the side of the fifty foot tour bus. I suddenly understood exactly why it was so important to keep the transaction from the public. I was hoping to meet a member of the band, but one of the people in suits saw me and gave me money and told me to get lost. The guy was rude, but he gave me a $53 tip.
