Annoy me Much

Had a customer ask me today how it was not wearing a mask. That I must really be enjoying it. And when I indicated that I had been wearing one all of last week given that I had a cold and did not want to share my germs, his response was that the world was now afraid of the common cold.

I looked at him and reiterated that I was being kind to my fellow c0-workers as well as the customers I come in contact with. He back down after that one.

Then he asked if I had seen the Pfizer report. A report that they were trying to hide for at least 75 years but were being forced to present it now. Something like 1200+ known side effects. Now I am getting annoyed.

I said that I had taken vaccines as a child. And it was no different then having my flu shot as well. Which is when I got lectured onto the fact that this was mrna based and had not been trialed enough on humans.

Now I was annoyed. With a smile I said to him that I was ok with being a guinea pig for this vaccine. He said he figured he would say the same thing were he to be vaccinated.

After he left it dawned on me that I should have commented that all those children who were vaccinated against polio were guinea pigs. But of course it came to me much much later, after he was gone.

Sunday Shopping

Yesterday the ex showed up at my till with the new girlfriend.
For someone who says that we were great friends I have no idea who she is.
I also may have gotten a little tetchy with him after the second time of him braying ‘huh?’ like an ass and suggested sharply that he invest in some damn hearing aids.
The customer behind not knowing the situation only caught the part about ‘damn hearing aids’ but I was in no mood to dispel his attitude towards me with an explanation.
I should not work Sundays.
I mean I can work just I should be done at 5 and not work through until 6.
I get irritated at the people walking into the store when we have 2 minutes until close for just one or two items.
$500 later and I am steaming.
Okay that may be an exaggeration on my part as it has never been that bad but I know that K told me about one where it was close to $300 and the customer refused to come to the till until they were done shopping.
Now this is where my customer service differs from theirs.
As a supervisor I brooked no shit with people shopping after close.
We have hours to shop in not before and most definitely not after.
Staff would like to get home and either go to bed or spend the rest of the evening with their families as is the case on Sundays.
I would go and let the customer know that we were closed and to head to the front.
The supervisors today are letting people slip in and shop for fear of upsetting them.
Look we are open 7 days a week.
7 a.m. to 10 p.m. 6 days a week.
12-6 on Sundays.
Please explain to me why you feel the need to wait until 5:59 to run to the store?
I was telling J yesterday that were I to stop at a business and they were closing even in 5 minutes I would turn around and go home.
Nothing is that important that it cannot wait.
I am not going to be that person.
I am just not a Sunday person.
I did not grow up with Sunday shopping.
If you ran out of something you went to the corner store, little mom and pop places where they knew your name.
Even Saturday everything was closed by 6 p.m.
And we are not talking about the 50’s.
In Steinbach our Main Street is shut down at 6 p.m.
Stores in the mall close at 6 as well.
And it is still 2021.
