RE: Ranting corner
Annnnd I'm drunk.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Just lately, customers at work have been pissing me off so much with their stupidity. I like to think my customer service and patience is very good at work, but by god my patience is basically gone. If the customer is good I'll be good, helpful, nice etc.. But like the shoplifters especially, no time or patience. No I don't give a shit how broke you are. No, I don't give a shit how many kids you have. No I don't care that the company I work for can afford it. No I don't care about your gang family members who will come and beat me up. No I don't care how many names you call me. No I don't care if you never shop here ever again you're trespassed anyway and I don't want your friends or family in here. You were planning on buying that tshirt you just shoved down your jacket, yea I don't think so get the fuck out. No I will not stop escorting you out and no, I don't care how embarrassed I'm making you feel. No, we don't have a toilet we just shit down the aisles, retard. No I don't give a shit what the other security guy lets your kid ride around the store on this little push ride on toy things, I'm not the other guy. Yes I saw you just leave your empty starbucks cup there and yes I am staring at you and than towards the bin, yes I am suggesting something. Oh? we close at 9pm, that's funny because I've worked here almost 3 years and I'm fairly certain we're always closed at 8pm.. but what would I know, it's not like I close up 4 days a week or anything... Yes we have 3 minutes before 8 and no I don't care, that's close enough to closing time I'm not letting you in. I don't care about your parking issues that's not my problem. I don't care how much of a rush you're in. No, you can't look at the cameras. No I haven't seen your friend or child or wallet or car keys or common sense.

Your second paragraph about sums up how I feel sometimes when working with the customers of my store. I mean fucksake I wonder, really really wonder how some people manage to get out of bed without soneone holding their hand.

Oh, and how 'bout treating me like a human being? Personally, it doesn't bother me too much, but would you walk up to a register yacking away on your phone if your parent/sibling/friend was behind the counter? And proceed to ignore them or huff when they need you to do something on the frekkin keypad?

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

I know the feeling. I am in sales now though and get paid far better than before.

RE: Ranting corner
Okay, I've been in town for less than a day and I'm ready to go home. It's about 10 degrees F warmer here than I'm used to and my parents are "conservative" with the air conditioner. Their phone rings off the hook and they glare at me when I reach for food with a disapproving can-you-really-afford-to-eat-that look on their faces.

Did I mention the heat?

Meh.

It is a lot hotter here than it was in NJ. My wife and I keep the air at 71 and our electric bill is only $69 a month.

I have no idea what my electric bill is (cause I don't pay it), but I keep it at 74 and I'm comfy. My parents keep the house at 78... less comfy.

RE: Ranting corner
Next door neighbor came over and rang my bell. When I came to the door he motioned me out without saying anything and pointed to his trash can, lying on the ground. We'd had thunderstorms all night so I wasn't impressed. Nor was I sympathetic.

"Bummer."

"Yours are still upright!"

"Yeah?"

"Why are you cans 'special'?"

"Well, they each had about fifty pounds of used kitty litter in them."

"And?"

"You have a nice day.

Meh.

We cool our house to 79ยบ. What I object to is leaving the TV and lights on when nobody is in the room. I just got up and turned the lights in the living room, family room and kitchen off.
