Gotta love retail.
Customer: I bought this sweatshirt a couple of weeks ago and it was on sale for 19.99, but the computer rang it up for $24.99.
Customer: It was $17.99.
Le’ Me: -ignoring lies-… Really though, if you don’t have the sales ad there’s nothing I can do for you. I could honor it if you had the ad.
Customer: Of course you can’t, I just love to over pay for things.
Le’ Me: You didn’t over pay for it, you paid regular price for it. Do you want your receipt back?
Customer: No, I don’t need that now.
Our henley thermal shirts had been on sale for 17.99 for the Labor Day Sale. As I told her, if she had the sales ad, I would have happily honored the price - but it would not have been honored because she purchased and item that wasn’t on sale. :P

The RANT of the RETURNS.
We get a lot of returns. Very few are legitimate, and while I try so very hard to stay with company return policy, my managers end up making me look like an ass when they break company policy just to make some major dick head happy.
- ”It doesn’t fit” regarding hardware and clothes.
- “It’s the wrong one”
- “I just don’t need it”
- “What’s your return policy?”

Prepping to go to work…
Which means the following is going to happen…
- People are going to bitch about how hot it is, and state how ‘nice’ it is in our store… despite the fact that I will be sweating my balls off because my manager refuses to turn the thermostat down.
- I’m going to have to tell at least 20 people how to use the god damn credit/debit machine, step by fucking step.
- I’ll be forced to handle returns, transactions, bitching customers, customers that need help, customers that want discounts on top of discounts, help customers know where ‘tools’ and ‘pet’ supplies are despite the big ass fucking signs hanging in our store that directs them to the proper aisle, phone calls, help customers over the phone, help customers with horse bullshit then become fantastically enraged when they refuse to listen to me (When they’ll be back in two weeks stating how /their/ way didn’t work)… and then I’ll get to yell at the guys back at service because they are mostly lazy fucks and I hate them as coworkers.
I thought I’d done a good job getting out of my fast food job.
I have never been more wrong in my life. 8(

My Problem Isn’t That I’m Boring…
I don’t party, I don’t hang out with a massive amount of people, I don’t like most people, and in the graced quote of Nick Simmons, I find that most people aren’t worth getting along with. I am however, completely restless.
I can’t stand being where I’m at as far as jobs go. I work retail, and I hate it. I hate the rude, snotty customers, the lies they spill, and the ass kissing corporation I work for. We have very understanding individuals, but these are people who have actually been where I am - they’ve been behind the service counter or behind they have operated the register. They get it, when most folks don’t. These are the people I enjoy, and the people I can joke around with and the people who will listen if I’m just not having the best day because it’s been full of shitty coworkers or shitty customers - but they never retaliate “Well, that’s your job" because they FUCKING. GET. IT. They know I’m trying to escape, they don’t feel the need to point out the obvious.
Nobody really wants to spend their life in retail, but very few individuals have enough drive, motivation and determination to escape it - because they’re too busy spending their money on booze, partying or whatever else is meaningless in life. I however, am one of those people who will not waste their life on such a mediocre ‘career’. I don’t have money because I reinvest it into the several fascinations of my life. Horses, as I’m going to start training next month. Photography, as I am a photographer who is quickly growing a client base. Make up, because while I hardly ever wear makeup, I love doing makeup, and I’m good at it.
People always make the comment to me that I’m talented. Am I really? Maybe I am, I don’t know - but I think it has more the desire to master the skill that has allowed me to progress so quickly in the several factors of my life. I could end up training horses, shooting photos and making faces until the day I die, and I would be as happy as a clam. These windows are opening up for me, while my coworkers, bosses, etc. are stuck in their lives, completely numb to the fact that they are the masters of their own lives.
I am PROUD of the work I do with make up, photos and horses… I can’t say I’m exactly proud to proclaim that I am a ‘team member’ at a store that is more cliquey than high school, a boss I loathe, and a store that has made over 3 million dollars in the last six months and easily tops 5 digit numbers PER DAY in sales, when I am lucky to get a paycheck of $300.
I will never settle for less then what I want, and that’s the reason I will never fit in with today’s society, and for this reason I am labeled boring, a loner, an outcast - when really, I’m just restless, and I won’t stop resting until I have a better, happier life!
