so it's now 1 am and i just ... REPEAT: JUST... got home from work. the store manager was oh so kind to call us 2 hours before closing - from the comfort of his home (hee, i almost typed 'your home' - now wouldn't THAT make ya paranoid? hee hee.) to inform us "oh yeah. by the way, the VP is going to be in tomorrow, so i expect the BEST CLOSE EVAR. or else." everyone had to leave, so i ended up sticking around with poor Manager Roxana to super clean everything.

way to delegate, Mr. Man.

but it's my friday. AND NOW MY BROTHER'S BIRTHDAY! WOOO! everyone race over and wish brosely a happy one! go on! i'll wait right here while you do so...

.... doo de dooo.....

as i immediately have heart failure and almost scream because the cat attacked my fingers from between the desk top and keyboard tray. all i saw was something move out of the corner of my eyes and felt something tap my fingers. *violent shudder*

oh, and want to know something else JUSHT SHUPER? remember AssWhore Lady from yesterday? she called the district office, and the d.m. gave her HER FREAKING MONEY. she wouldn't listen to our side of the story at ALL, and in fact called and talked to a manager that wasn't there during the whole *waves arms emphatically* ordeal. ryan and i were so.... GRAH! i can't even BEGIN to describe how.. GRAH.. i felt. *fumefumefumefume*

not to mention i can't really see very well. it feels like someone licked my eyeballs, my contacts have been in so long.

i heard Bacci chomping on something earlier, before i went to work. i wanted to see what in the world she was eating in my bedroom.... and discovered a string hanging out of her mouth.

now. i think "silly kitty!" and pull...... and pull.... and pull.... and pull.... all the while, Bacci is starting to squirm and GAG as i'm pulling a gigantic long piece of string that she had been swallowing inch by inch. maybe it's a good thing i'm not mating at the moment. if i can't keep a kitten from sucking up random string like a long piece of spaghetti, what in the WORLD would i do with an infant?!? i'd be one of those parents that spaced them off and left them locked in the car on the hottest day of the year, for sure.

anyhoo. i'm so tired now that my stewp? stoup? when a soup and a stew love each other very much, boys and girls... this is what it is. stewp.

anyhoo. i'm so tired now that my stewp hath hit my stomach (along with some scrumptious roast beast that faetal made...), that i simply MUST go to bed.

It's companies that do that that make people just constantly want to talk to someone higher, because they know that eventually they'll talk to somebody who will just say, "It's $8/$50/$300/$5000, is it really something worth 'losing' a 'customer' over?"

I get off work at 9:00 and am going to the gym right afterwards, so I hadn't really thought to.

Yes, the more rarified the air of corporate management they breath, the more likely they are to just cave and get rid of the icky pushy customer and give them what they want, despite any company policies on the matter.

and make their underlings look like they're even more underlingish and completley incapable of making "correct" decisions in matters like that.

jerks.

that sort of a customer? yes. very worth losing a customer over. and any one of us can tell anyone higher up that she is NOT a regular and does NOT spend high dollars in office max. i can almost see doing it to appease someone that comes in and drops $500 or more a month on office supplies, but not $35 once.

there should also be a principle that says that you freaking stand by your employees in situations like that, because folding and giving her what she wants only makes those of us that refused her look bad. i used to deal with that all the freaking time from managers, i would repeatedly tell a customer no, the manager would come over, listen to only half of the story and IMMEDIATELY give them their way, then leaving, and me having to stand alone in front of the customer and feel stupid because mommy or daddy overrode our decision.

thanks for your well wishes, i'm certain that after the holidays are over...

we generally close at 9 and are out of there on a LATE night around 1030, generally by 10 at the very latest.

They gave her the money anyway???
That irks me because that's why people go through life acting like butts. The world seems to be catering especially to BUTTS!! BIG BIG BIG BUTTS! ALL OF THEM!!!

I'm going to find out where she lives, break into her house and take her 8 bucks. That will teach her! *jk*

I'm glad Bacci is ok, our dog ate some string once and he had to have surgery to get it out.

Re: They gave her the money anyway???
hee hee. yup, they gave her the money, anyway. good to know that our district manager listens to and supports us fully.

i think i cursed us by saying that most of the buttheads have realized their attempts are futile or have finally followed through with their threats to no longer shop there as it had been quiet.

HAD BEEN.

maybe it's the impending summer... the kids are home and driving them BONKERS.

so far, so good with bacci, though i still CONSTANTLy find her gnawing on a thread with a needle at the end. it irritates me, as i know that III am not the one doing the sewing around here! especially since i lost my sewing kit over 6 months ago ;)

Re: They gave her the money anyway???
EEE@needle! that's scary! Why do pets go for what's bad for them? It drives me nuts.

Maybe all the buttheads just went over to another store.

Re: They gave her the money anyway???
i read in a book at barnes and noble the other day that cats will chew/eat on things that are not edible, like clothing, plastic, etc., because it's ... it has something to do with their natural wish to hunt and kill their prey, that if you do something to make getting their food harder, like hiding it in different places, placing a small branch over their food, etc, that they will stop eating random inedible stuff. they said it's called 'pica'.

i just read that in browsing, but have been thinking about it lots, so i shall read more on it next time i'm there!

Re: They gave her the money anyway???
hmmm maybe I should try that although my cats are pretty good about not doing it (although Lily does like flowers)

This morning I found the box of my renaissance clothing completely upsidedown on the floor. And when I picked it up to put it back, Lily jumped out of it. She must have crawled in there and it fell on top of her! heheeh what a horrid death to be crushed by clothing! But thank goodness she is a sturdy breed :-P

Re: They gave her the money anyway???
BAH HA HA, hilarious. poor Lily!!! reminds me of when i was a teen and we turned the washing machine on after closing the lid and the lid started bopping up and down because one of the cats had been sleeping on the dirty laundry inside. i want to say that another one took a short spin in the dryer once, too. very short.

yup. eight buckaroos. and the district manager refunded her every penny she wasn't entitled to, without listening to the full story and without seeing any documentation or anything.

she even then called and talked to a manager that HADN'T been there about the situation, although the manager that had kicked her out was there the entire time.

I remember as a kid my mom had to help my cat Stretch get a long piece of string out from his rear end! Be thankful you caught it when you did!

LOL i used to have to do that with my cat years ago, Luna - she was always eating rubber bands, which was her FAVORITE for some idotic weird psychotic reason. i could SWEAR that i had removed every single rubber band from the house, and lo! i would come home and she would have found one i had forgotten somewhere and be chomping happily away on it. i was always finding the things in her litter box, and occasionally one would be stuck in her butt. i mean, what do you DO, if you accidentally let it go, and it snaps her in the ass....

I HATE CLOSING!! I had to stay until 1am over Thanksgiving break and I work at American Damn Eagle! Why do they really need me walking around picking fuzz off sweaters and re-folding already folded things to make myself look busy until 1am?! And AssWhore lady and people of the like are completely lame. They really must be stopped.

Dec. 12th, 2004 07:47 pm (UTC)
LOL it was about the same for me day before thanksgiving, i stayed until 1230, walking around, setting out merchandise that was free after rebates, taking garbage back, making sure the registers were pristine for opening morning.

and the second the doors opened day after thanksgiving, i had NO clue as to where anything was and was more lost than i think i had ever been while working there, though i've been there a year and a half.

they really DO must be stopped. they're evil. kharma will catch up to them eventually, i'm certain. it always does.
