Can I Rant?

I work in service jobs, I’ve got three of them on the go. Girls gotta make money right? I deal with a lot of people in a day, like it’s absurd how many faces I see. When you work around so many different people, you get to the best and the worst of ’em. There are some things that I cannot stand!

1) YOU HAVE ZERO REASON TO BE RUDE

I’m not a punching bag! Why are you shouting and swearing at me? I have done nothing but my job the whole time. Like c’mon rando

2) I HAVE NO CONTROL OVER PRICING

If I say something is a certain price, that’s because that’s what it is. No I’m not joking, no I can’t mark it down. And especially, no, I cannot make it free. You think I get paid enough to make something free and lose my job because you don’t want to buy it online for a third of the price? Nah. Not at all how that’s going to go.

3) Trying to be “Funny” or Prank Calling me Wastes Our Time

Yes I said “our” because now I have your phone number. And I am one hundred percent okay with reporting that number for as many different things as I can. It’s 2019, I can pay the dollar and have your phone number on the internet as a “do not answer” number. Like buddy, leave me alone. Call a pizza joint or something.

4) Yes I’m a Woman. Yes I’m Nice. No I am NOT FLIRTING WITH YOU

It’s literally my job to be nice to you. I act that way with every single person who walks through the door. Thank you and good bye.

5) I have an EXTREME Perfume Allergy

Why do you have to wear so much perfume and cologne? Take a shower and wear deodorant. Or you know you don’t even need the deodorant. Just reduce the man made scents so I can breathe please. I’m coughing because my throat is swelling and I actually cannot catch my breath.

I’m sorry about this rant but I needed to say something before I go insane. I am a FIRM believer that everyone should have to do retail or fast food at some point in their life so they understand the struggles people like myself put up with.

I don’t believe I’m asking too much. I just wish people were more respectful. I’m really not trying to make your life difficult.

Thanks for reading!
