Holidays Needed

I am very aware that my holidays cannot come fast enough. 10 days off.

10 whole days to read and chill. Decompress from the influx of other people’s energy. Purge myself of the need to slap a bitch or punch a prick for being an ass.

Yesterday was not a bad day for customers. No one made my eyes blink rapidly by asking stupid questions. I know we say there is no such thing as a stupid question but I may have found it.

Now Tuesday I had a string.

Customer #1 never listens to me when I speak to her. Ever. So once again when I asked if I could bag her groceries she snarled that she had her own bag. I stopped running her groceries through until she stopped and looked at me. I repeated my question and again she snarled that she was perfectly capable of bagging her groceries.

Me: i am sure you are capable of bagging your own groceries however it is a part of my job. One I enjoy doing.

She did not speak another word to me. Not even when I smiled and wished her a good day. I have to assume that she will actively avoid me when I am in till.

Customer #2 knew my job better than I did. While I was explaining that it was best to sign lotto tickets before leaving home, she shrugged and indicated it was only $5. I said if it was bigger it would be her loss. She informed me if it was bigger she would not be coming to store.

Then omg I accidentally scanned 6 instead of only 5 Crossword tickets and she snarled at me.

Maybe it is me causing the snarling. Maybe it is me with the problem? Am I the toxic one?

When she goes to pay she hands me her Air Miles card. I explained that you could not earn Air Miles on lottery. Which is when she took me to task for not taking it.

C: They swipe my card at Safeway in the city and I earn Air Miles.

Me: Ma’am you would be purchasing other items then.

C: No I get points.

Me: You can tap or insert your card when you are ready.

Inside my head the inner Jay bitch is rearing her head. She wants to take on the beady eyed little snot in front of her but CS Jay who can make you feel an idiot with a tone has risen to the occasion.

Me: Thank you and you have yourself a fabulous day.

That was with a smile on my lips. Here is what the tone expressed that I could not.

Raging Jay in head: Would you like to see the Air Miles policy? I have one here and I am pretty sure that I know their policies better then you, you stupid little troll of a woman. Do you live under a bridge?

Three hours are all I am working today. 10 a.m. I am clocking out and not looking back. I need cat food and am getting that before I head home. I need a small grocery shop but I am going to use Curbside tomorrow.

Three hours. I can so do that standing on my head.

I am not a Runner

Anyone who knows me and a few who don’t realize I do not run. Except under certain situations. Such as the one that arose yesterday.

My 10 a.m. regular Tuesday morning curb order arrived for pick up. All was wonderful. As I loaded up her groceries I was letting her know I was on holidays next week and who would be doing orders. Also reminded her that it was a Tuesday after the long weekend so she would need to wait for a call.

I closed the trunk of her SUV and pushed my cart back. Waved good bye and entered the building. I pushed my cart against the wall and struggled with the door. It is an emergency exit so I have to lean against the bar to flick the door thingie that keeps it closed. I don’t know what else to call it.

As I was leaning there I glanced over and realized that her box with her bread and bananas was sitting on the shelf.

Shit!!!!

I grabbed the box and bolted out the door. She had begun to drive away and I began running after her vehicle. Pony tail swinging. Legs pumping. In my head I am laughing maniacally hoping like hell I was not about to wipe out with her groceries and fall on my face.

Thank goodness my customer takes her time. Had she been going faster I never would have caught up with her. I think I shocked her when she finally saw me. She stopped and I put her box in the back of her vehicle and waved her off.

I was walking back across the parking lot laughing at and congratulating myself. Another successful pick up completed. Then stopped in my tracks. In my desire to get to my customer I had not flicked the thingie that keeps door open.

Thankfully there is a way I can get in without having to call for help. I mean it was not -40 so walking around would not have been a chore. But if you know how to do it no one has to know that you just locked yourself out for the 101st time. 不不不不不不不
