highlights from the joys of working retail on Black Friday:
- No, your coupon does not work today, it’s fucking black friday and it’s already 75% off, so stop complaining thanks
- yes, the line is long and no, I am not going slow, you are going slow with your obnoxious items and payment methods and general lack of common sense
- white ladies sure like juicers and panini grills and other pointless things
- white ladies sure can complain
- please stop writing that check and pay with a debit card like the rest of society
- thanks for telling me that we shouldn’t have to be open Thanksgiving night, great story
- I only have super large shopping bags left for your pair of socks, that ok?
- if you decide your deal is “not good enough” don’t scoff at me and leave your six items on the counter
- your child/spouse/relative will hate this item
now to feel guilty
now to feel anger because i’m not even at the job I left subway for anymore
now to hate the existence of these feelings because it’s not my responsibility
all i wanted was to see if i qualify for an ikea credit card, i didn’t need to feel bad about myself at the same time, thanks you swedish bastards
it is only juggling work schedules and extra body spray and no sleep
I had a deep, shaking laughing reaction to this
+ had my first day at all three new jobs. Feeling better & more confident with most of the training out of the way. They all say I’m doing great, so that’s comforting, but still nervous/anxious. Working lots next week, let’s hope it all goes well. It’s not as hard as I thought it’d be.
+ one of my new jobs is writing articles online for WebProNews, which is the one I’m most excited about, because it’s my first real paid writing job. I wrote my first article about Jameis Winston and it’s short and to the point and I can do better but whatever, but I’m excited to keep going.
- almost 2 weeks without my iPhone and I never realized how much I relied on it. New phone needs to get here now
+ was found not at fault for my car accident, so today I get to hand over my car for repairs and drive a sweet rental. And I’ve been seeing the chiropractor and the adjustments and massages are just amazing. So, thanks for hitting me, dude?
…. there is no how to, there is only scrawled times in a planner and training manuals everywhere and $100 on new pants, new bras, new deodorant, new hardworking attitude and a crushing fear that you’re doing too much and they will all be gone tomorrow
