Man, I am over retail. I know I’ve said that like four hundred times, but I am so over it. Customers, mega corps, and having a boss… Work is just not worth the stress that it gives you.
Relax Deryn, you’re just stressed... I don’t know if it’s the pandemic or people are actually dumb, but my god. With everything getting bad again, I feel like I’m losing my mind. And because the company I work for is what it is, I don’t speak on behalf of the company. These thoughts are mine and I hate people most of the time…
We have plexiglass between us and the customers right now, and yet people don’t understand that. My boss and I have been running into interesting arguments of sorts with almost everyone. There’s been too many instances where people have straight up pushed the glass off my counters. I understand you’re lazy, but please don’t lean on the counter. The sanitizer smells terrible and if you touch anything I have to spray it. And I don’t get why people just refuse to listen to me.
Right now people are either on edge, or just don’t care about anyone. Man, I hate dealing with arrogant people and all their unnecessary crap. There’s signs all over my store asking people to not touch shit, but of course, no one in the world can read. We’re working on it, but holy frick, and asking anyone to stop touching anything in my store is impossible. It becomes a fight not worth having.
Ranting isn’t my favourite thing to do, but thank you for coming along with me today! I just don’t understand why people can’t be kind. I was talking to my boss about getting a raise, and my lovely roommate chimed in with a really good piece of advice. “why invest my time into a career I’m not passionate about when I could invest my time into what I really want to do.” I can’t thank her enough for being in my life.
But, that’s all I have for today, as you can tell, I’m almost an hour late today.
My bad... Thanks for stopping by, adn be safe out there!
