*this is going to be a negative rant post, so reader beware*
Today was a crappy day at work, which could have been less crappy had I adopted a better attitude about it. In all honesty though, I'm so sick of my job I could scream. I literally feel like telling every single customer off every single day, even the ones who feign politeness. Do something about it you ask? I have been trying. I qualified on a test for a job as a wire technician at AT&T, but have not heard back about an interview. FML.
I work in a bakery, so I get nothing but idiotic questions from brain dead people who can't think for themselves. Technology has made us all so stupid that we can't even look up from our smartphones let alone use the minds God gave us to deduce even The SIMPLEST OF PROBLEMS.
For clarity's sake, here are some of the questions that I get asked regularly when I'm at work. I write them all down because I had this vision that one day I would make a comic strip out of the whole experience and then laugh at it. Oh and the format is as follows: What I want to say, followed by: (What I actually say)
-"Do you work here?" NO lady I just wear a hat, apron, and name tag with my name on it for the f of it.
*smiling* (I sure do!) :D :D :D
-"Is this the bakery?" No it's not, but there's a wonderland of baked goods sitting in front of your stupid fat face, and a HUGE BLOCK LETTER sign, IN 1000 point font that says "BAKERY" above your head.
*smiling* (IT SURE IS!) :D :D :D
-"How much are bagels?" Maybe if you would read the sign, in front of the BAGELS, that clearly states HOW MUCH, the bagels are, you would know.
*smiling and pointing to the effing sign* ($3.09 for 6, $3.99 for 9, BUHBYE NOW, hope you can find your way to the bathroom when you need to go) - wait i thought this was what you actually said? :P
-I'd like to order a cake. Well right there over yonder is a STACK OF CAKE ORDER FORMS, WITH A PEN.. right over there, you may have missed it though.. IT'S A GIANT CAKE ORDER FORM FILLER OUT STATION that PRACTICALLY JUMPS OUT AT YOU saying "Oh please FILL ME IN!
*smiling and pointing to the cake order forms* (You can fill out an order right over here ma'am)
-How do I unthaw bagels?
These are just some quick examples of stuff that I get asked ON THE REGULAR. I could go on and on.
Anyway, today sucked, tomorrows my birthday. I was supposed to have the day off but my manager asked me to come in for a little while. Oh the joys of being a wage slave. I could have said no, but since he's really cool I agreed to it.
Woe is me, etc. etc.
Thanks for listening to me vent! I had to get that out.
