Marty's told me all about you.


You find 389 Neopoints!!!

You find a Jhudora Stocking of Treats!!!

You also find a Bucket of Coal!!!



Slept like poo. I finished the last two pages of The Subtle Knife - not even enough to get me into the plot much, but the sucker gave me nightmares. I remember wandering around a world with people eaten by Spectres. I had even started reading Feist's Krondor: the Betrayal afterwards.

I'm watching The Big Lebowski for the first time evur at this moment. I'm liking. I think I currently have Samurai Champloo, Vol 4 and The Cannonball Run in the mailbox, should I decide to go get it.

Thank GAWD I have the next two days off. Today was another hellish day of people screaming at me. I'm beginning to get used to angry people. I cheerfully followed a foot behind a shuffling, screaming elderly man all the way to the exit, professing my gleeful wish to help him, which pissed him off even more. I followed him half outside, yelling "I hope you have a nice day, sir!" He bellowed over his shoulder, "NO!!! YOOOOU have a nice day!" I turned to a customer to ring her up and said, "I WILL have a nice day... now!" Something tells me I need to reign in a bit of the snarkiness.

"You can all go to hell!"
"I'm here to help you, sir!"
"Not anymore, you can't! I won't let you!"
"I'm all yours as long as you need me!"
"It's too late, I'm never coming back!"
"Are you sure? I'm happy to help!"
"#$*&(%(@@!!!!"
"You have a nice day, sir!"
"NO!!! YOU have a nice day!"

My favorite response ever to my telling a screaming angry person to have a nice day was "DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!!!"

.... okay. :)+

Whoozzat? Oh, Remus Lupin!

Gawd, it must be a full moon. The loons were out in force in clinic today and that's saying something for where I work. Your post reminded me so much of a patient of ours with a blood pressure of ridiculously high over ridiculously high.

"Does your blood pressure usually run high?"
"NO IT DOES NOT."
"Are you feeling okay right now?"
"YES I AM."
"Any dizziness or anything?"
"I TOLD YOU, BITCH, I FEEL FINE, HOW MANY TIMES DO I GOTTA SAY IT?"

Hey, I just don't want a stroke on my watch.

I just keep telling myself that I just have to deal with them for a few minutes - there's people out there that have to live and work with them!

Hi, I'm a customer, I'm cranky and I don't know why but I feel the need to express it to those who job it is to help me. Actually I want to do all that I can to make you want to murder me and no it doesn't make me feel better

With love as always,
The Customer.

It's beyond frustrating, too, that corporate has restricted our payroll so much that when we DO have an onslaught of customers, there's no one available to help them.

I bet, and how can you keep a large store like that secure?

I also have another fear but I'm not going to say it, I just hope and pray for the best.

YOU CAN'T FUCK WITH THE JESUS!

Watch it again sometime. It gets better upon repeated viewing.

Also? HAHAHAHAHA "YOU Have a nice day!" Mostly my customers just hang up on me. (Why you'd be rude to people who have your name, address, email, and possibly credit card number, I have no idea.)

Ha! That's just about as bright as people who are needlessly rude to people that handle their food while they aren't looking :D

If you've worked in a restaurant or seen "Waiting", you should know better. Period.

(BTW, if you've seen "Waiting", I AM Naomi, the angry one.)

Oooh, I haven't!! I have worked in fast food, though, with people who will spit (or worse) in someone's food without thinking twice - afterall, it's "only" a fast food job.
