We’ll go down in history, remember me for centuries..

I find myself often looking to the past. Back when life was simple. Back when I came and went as I pleased. Back when I had no real responsibility in life. Back when I was truly..free. If I had to write myself 10 years ago I would tell myself a few things:

1. School is super important. Once you stop the harder it is to get back in.

2. While partying and hanging out with your friends is important, there will be plenty of that later on in life. I should stay focused on my goals and making sure I try hard to achieve them.

3. That boy that you thought that you couldn’t live without? You can. You will be just fine at the end of the day.

4. Mind your friends and the people that you hang out with. Some friends you will keep for the rest of your life. Others will come and go. And some people will try to drag you down. If they’re bad friends get rid of them.

5. Take the time to figure out who I am. It’s alright to have different interests. It’s alright to just be myself. And if people have a problem with that? Fuck them.

Although I’m sure there are a dozen more, I cannot think of them at the moment.

“Happy Holidays.. can I have a discount?”

Holiday season is absolute Hell this time of year. It makes me always wish I had made better life choices and had finished school when I was younger so I wouldn’t be where I am today. That being said, it’s not that I hate my job. I actually like my job. I love my co-workers. They make all of the bullshit that we go through somewhat tolerable. It’s the customers.

“Do you have any holiday sales?”

“This button is missing. Can I have a discount?”

“I found this on the $5 rack. So I want it for $5. It’s false advertising”.

My response?

But really my reaction is:

My company is actually pretty generous with the return policy and with coupons. But asking about coupons when you get to the register not only pisses off the people behind you, it pisses off the people who have to stand there and wait for you to find said coupon.

Not only that, then there’s the customer that wants to argue with you about every sign, every discount, etc. The only upside is now that I’m a supervisor I can tell people no. I’m just trying to get through this season smoothly.

All I do is work, work, work, work, work..

I’ve reached a point in my life where I’m (almost) ready to settle on what I would like to do for the rest of my life.

I like my job. I do. I can deal with customers asking me the same questions over and over again. I can deal with the self-entitled assholes who think that a 30 day return policy is the most asinine thing in the world. (But seriously..an entire month to return your item and you can’t find time in 30 days to return a shirt?) I can even deal with people yelling at me and being disgruntled because I couldn’t help them.

But working for my new SM has annoyed me so much that I’m about ready to quit.

It’s only been 3 months.

Today she called me “closed minded” because I mentioned a former SM in training is hiring for a DM position but I would never work for her because she was condescending. Then every time I mentioned something that happened at my former store she always had a rebuttal as if everything I said HAD to be preposterous. My patience is wearing thin and I’m over it. I’m over a lot of things, to be honest.
