As my last post would suggest, work today was FUN. Had an asthma attack in the middle of my shift and couldn’t leave because there was only one other person in the store since everyone else called out…. I would rather not have to do that again ever.

PSA to anyone who goes to any store ever.

If you’re in a long line and there’s only one worker there, chances are they know the line is long and have already called for backup at least once before you got in line.

Shouting at the employees to hurry up or get someone else will not help the situation. Maybe they’re already going as fast as they can. Maybe their help keeps getting stopped by other customers as they make their way up. Or maybe there just isn’t anyone else available for one reason or another.

Please do not make their job harder than it already is. Minimum wage is already insult enough to the bs they have to put up with each day.

Oh, it’s fine. I was in school for a while but ended up having to quite because it was too expensive. :< I work at at Joann’s craft store to help support my hobby. lol the discount is nice but since it’s a retail job it’s automatically kind of cruddy. xD

And I just turned 23 in December. :) I haven’t had to say my age out loud since then AND IT SOUNDS SO WEIRD. LOL

Work today was pretty chill until I got a lady arguing with me and trying to return an item that she didn’t even buy from our store. lol

Customers who put their change on the counter for me to pick up and not directly in my hand are the bane of my existence.

While at the checkout with a customer at work today, I noticed her small child was holding an item so I request it so I can scan it. It’s only when she sets it in my hand and tells me she she didn’t want it that I notice that it’s drenched in saliva and distorted from the moisture.

But, you know, the customer’s always right. I’m so PISSED that this is something we just have to let slide, like, NO YOUR CHILD IS GROSS AND DESTROYED THE ITEM NOW PAY FOR IT LIKE A DECENT HUMAN BEING.

ugh so gross

How customer service works…

i.e. people are cuuuuuuuunts. 

I have to deal with shits like this at work, thankfully my supervisor is lovely and fully understands people are shits.

I once had to show a customer on 4 different calculators how their total came out to what it was because they wouldn&#8217;t believe that it was rung up correctly(&#8220;that&#8217;s too high!!&#8221;). 4 DIFFERENT FUCKING CALCULATORS because even though the total came out the same on each one, I WAS STILL WRONG

I really hate parents sometimes. A lady came into my store with her kid and he was messing around on the shopping cart and ended up tipping it over and on top of himself. The kid starts screaming of course and the mom just picks up the cart and kid and continues on.

Like, holy shit. No, either inspect the crap or of the kid before doing anything or you leave the store.

But either way, bad parenting and uuuugh

GUH my work scheduled me on days I haven’t worked for over a year and it’s screwing up my cosplay schedule. @_@

Today at work a guy from my graduating class came in. I recognized him immediately as one of the Jocks that tormented me on a weekly basis, but he didn’t remember me specifically. Lets just say I got more attractive and changed my style after high school. After a minute of him trying to flirt with me, I broke it to him how we knew each other and almost immediately his eyes widened and he finished his shopping quietly. I can’t stop laughing evilly on the inside.

sometimes I need to entertain myself at work. my maturity shines in these moments.

People are getting ballsy.today at work (I work at a fabric store) some guy grabbed two bolts of football team fabric and ran out of the store.we were still able to see him running two blocks down.

Today at work cute little old man gave me this slip of paper and explained that it was his happy birthday song to America and he even sang it to me. Idk I just thought it was really cute and he just seemed so happy and he called me a patriot. lol
