I was that kid too, in PE (I was terrible and always had to pick the team to be on because no one wanted me) and in all other things. My religion teacher told me that she was afraid of looking directly at me because the attention would make me cry.
Yes! Team Cry At Everything is assembling!! Yeah I picked the PE teachers for the illustration but I’m reasonably certain that I had a teacher see me cry for every subject except maybe ‘Philosophy and Ethics’ which was boring and didn’t feel like it played a major role in my education.
Oh man that sucks. Yesterday there was a lady who kept insisting everything was on sale, so I had to get a manager to help with her. So about 10 minutes later I finally got her checked out, and she went to the next register to have them go through the receipt and make sure everything was taken off.
UGH UGH UGH when the customers go to another member of staff to try and get a different answer / confirm your stupidity, that is one of the worst things! UUUUGH
Similarly one of the fraudulent underwear returners was very angry that I hadn’t given her her receipt when I had. She took all the receipts out of her bag and snottily demanded “where is it then?”. I picked it up from the pile and gave it to her and she stormed off without a word, at which point I picked up her bag to throw it away and found the “”“missing”“” price tags…
Rude customers uuuuugh
Ew. This is why I refuse to be register trained and start work at five in the morning, three hours before our store opens. I have zero patience for BS anymore and I’m sick of people being so entitled and having tantrums.
GOOD. CALL. Being entitled and having tantrums sums it up exactly, and the Deliberately Physically Intimidating Male Customers make me wish it was OK to put on a clipped English accent and say “You’re having hysterics! Snap out of it!!” and slap them soundly across the face. For their own good, of course.
Yeah I’m thinking about asking for night shifts for that reason, I mean they start and finish at times when it’s safe to be walking around on my own so there’s not really a problem… But tomorrow and the day after I’m gettin’ trained in some admin duties so I won’t be on the shop floor AT ALL!! I’m not allowed on the tills AT ALL!!! It makes the 6.30 wake-up almost worthwhile!!!!
And on that note… I’m going to bed
