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.

She Leapt Out At Me

I face south and have sunshine all day long. Because of this I need plants/flowers that will thrive in direct sunlight. Today as I passed by the floral department at work my eyes fell upon the above beauty. And I have brought her home.

She is a lavender plant. Needs bright light constant sunlight. There will be a need to do a lot of watering but that is so okay. I love lavender. Wish me luck that I will be able to keep it alive.

I was asked this week if I wanted to do the Food Safety Champion job as the girl doing it now is too busy with subbing at the schools and does not have the time to keep up. It takes three hours a week. Which means I am now going to only be scheduled in a till for 5 hours a week.

I am so pumped. I love my curbside. I love being on the floor helping customers and believe it or not facing the aisles. There is an intense sense of satisfaction to look down the aisle and see it all straight and lined up. I even told the boss that too. What I do not love? Standing still in a till for 8 hours. Not always busy. And I am not able to handle that.

Then to make things even better I was asked if I wanted to work tomorrow. A five hour shift. Doing the tidying up, refilling, facing and sorta keeping an eye on the younger kids at work. Which cut me down to only three hours I would need to work which i am doing Friday when I go in at 8 for training.

But my weekend starts at 11 a.m.

Then I am back on Sunday because drum roll please…..May 19th I begin my holidays at 10 a.m. I cannot wait. I am going to read. I am going to write. I am going to indulge myself in some sitting out in the sunshine. I am going to recharge.

10 days off.

I cannot wait!!!!!!!
