it's all about position [15 Mar 2004|12:22am]

I've just decided that it really sucks to have my manager (Heather) be on maternity leave.  On top of that, we have a new manager and assistant manager.  Today I was basically training them both on what to do and everything.  Gosh, I feel like I should be the manager.  I feel so awkward telling what to do or even worse what not to do.  It is kind of fun especially in front of customers. =)

Don't even start swearing at me bitch [22 Feb 2004|03:14pm]

Yesterday I'm at work selling maternity clothes to moody pregnant ladies. The worst part about it is that the bitchy customer was not pregnant. First of all, I had the flu and I am at work...that sucks right there. The last thing you wanna deal with is a stupid customer who cannot listen to simple instructions. I had to leave the register and go sit down for a while. I come back out and start to straighten up. Then Kelly calls me back to the register. There is a line mind you and this lady is there with her husband and kids. She wants a refund for this shirt that she bought her friend. Now, we NEVER do refunds. We ALWAYS say that at the register and we even have you initial that we told you. Apparently, Shelly who does not usually work at my store was working the day the lady came in to purchase the shirt. She told her that she could bring it back for a cash refund if it did not work out. What makes it even worse is that Shelly is the sister of our district manager. Kelly politely tells the lady that we cannot give cash back only in store credit or exchange. The lady does not like this of course. I tell her the same thing. Our register won't let us give money back and we do not have the authority to do anything about it. The lady is getting more and more upset. Tells her husband to take the kids outside. Then she proceeds to have a temper tantrum.."What the f... am I supposed to do?" blah, blah, blah...that's where I just stop listening and having any sympathy to try to help you. There's no need for that. What the f am I supposed to do? I wanted to tell her that she could wear the shirt...it would've fit her fine. To make it even worse, the lady behind her (who I was helping out..she had a gift purchase that was puschased in January which is way past the time you are supposed to exchange it..and i let her look around and exchange it for something) she chimes in something about giving store credit is the same as cash if you give it away...whatever. I wasn't even in the mood for listening. It just pissed me off that she would butt in knowing that I was doing her a favor. I am really in the wrong line of work. It's either that or the food industry for now...gotta have some money to pay bills while going to school.

I would just like to post a quick note to say that now that I have more quality time on the internet I would like to get this community up and running again.. We had great momentum, but everything just kinda dropped off.  So, to get the ball rolling, here is a story that happened a few days ago.  x-posted in my journal.

Why are people so stupid? I work in customer service, in the returns department. Here's our latest batch of idiots:

1.) Guy yelled as us today and cut up his credit card on the counter. Why? He wanted to rent our truck, and he didn't have any proof of insurance on him. In this state, it's illegal to drive without insurance, and you're required by law to have an insurance card in your vehicle. This is all we require.

2.) Guy yelled at 4 of us seperately because we couldn't give him 50 cents back from a gift card.

3.) Crazy woman yelled at me for 15 minutes because I wouldn't return her 3 piece lamp set. The catch? She only had 2 of the lamps there.

I went to my school's bookstore the other day and bought, among other things that I actually needed, two CDs. Well, I of course put the bag with the CDs and whatever else on my floor where I didn't really worry about it for a couple of days - until tonight when I decided that I wanted to listen to the CDs - and realize that the hard plastic casing that is supposed to deter people from stealing the CDs - were still on. Um, isn't that stuff supposed to be taken off at the checkout so that I can actually listen to the CDs? And I suppose that I should have noticed this at the time - but ya know what - it's not my job to take care of that stuff - it IS theirs. Idiots.

Hello all, i'm new here! Anyway on with my complaint about humanity :D

I was at work helping this old couple with some things they were purchasing while two other employees were screwing around by the register. They were being obnoxious (their usual selves) and were using some "bad language" Anyway, i'm having a conversation with the old people trying to be nice and all, and helping thing when the old man explodes on one of the guys. "You need to watch your mouth, there is a lady here *points to his wife* and i don't appreciate you talking like this! Where is the manager! Get the manager right away!" So i tell the guy i'm sorry the manager isn't here at the moment. So then he completely ignores me and continues to yell at the guy, "Do you work here?! Huh do ya?!" so the kid replies, "Nope, i'm from the bronx" when really he worked there, but wanted to act like his stupid self and say he was from the bronx.

I received an invoice in the mail from the university that I'm about to attend, expecting to have a $1298 credit all nice and ready for me to receive as a nice, fat refund check. When I opened it up, I was very pissed off to see that they had credited my account with my scholarships, and then CHARGED ME for them. How do they CHARGE ME for scholarships that I'm supposed to be receiving? Anyway, I've called many times and been told that it would be taken care of, but it hasn't. I can't pick up my ID, get parking tags, buy books, or even attend class until my record shows that I don't owe the university $3,770. I should go to the student accounts office and camp out until they fix it. Incompetent morons. OK, enough ranting.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Those Live Journal "ratings" communities are the most pointless, self absorbed, pieces of crap that I've ever seen. I don't understand why people would want to join them so badly, or be so upset if one of the communities rejects them. It boggles the mind. Eh, maybe it's just a teen/highschool thing.

Thank you for your time.

I'm getting really tired of rich spoiled people where I work. This guy interrupted me while I was helping other customers to inform me that he needed to put in an order. I paged the guy that does the orders, told him it'd take a couple of seconds because that guy was helping someone else, and the guy tells me, "I've already been waiting here for five minutes, I'll go to [competitor], I bet they'll serve me."

He had made the person I was trying to help wait five minutes with his antics and tirades.

While my mother and I were driving down the expressway we got to enjoy the lovely company of the car beside us. You see, they thought it would be fun to yell and scream out their window while driving 65 mph at me to ask if I was single. Not to mention they were swirving all over the road and started to creepily follow us. What the fuck are people thinking?

If anyone wants to see the first part of this then go to my journal where I posted about my dumb coworker. A long story short though on Friday I entrusted a guy who works under me to go ship a laptop I had fixed to a employee in Canada. He shipped it UPS instead of FedEx Cause he couldn't find a FedEx. Today I was greeted at my desk by frantic phone calls from people in my company ranging from the guy in Canada to the VP. Apparently when he shipped it UPS he screwed up the declaration of value to the point where instead of it being insured as if it was worth 2,000$ the Canadians thought that the guy in Canada was buying it for 2,000$ and refused to deliver it until the guy paid a duty on it. They also decided that the best way to make the guy in Canada pay the duty on the package was to send it to God Damned Kentucky, which for anyone that may not be great at geography is nowhere near Canada. So now the laptop that absolutely needed to get there on Saturday is being held in a customs office requiring several attorney documents and a large sum of money to be paid before they will take it back to Canada and deliver it. Some days I just never should have gotten out of bed I swear

Shopping... Blah. [20 Jul 2003|07:40pm]

You know what drives me insane? When I'm in line at a store...a long line at that.. and people behind me are complain to me that people need to hurry up. What makes you think I have controll over the line? What makes you think that the line will magically go faster if you constantly bitch at me? Perhaps if the person who's checking out knew how to write checks, or didn't buy 55 cans of on sale potato chips, or actually had the math skills to estimate the price of their purcheses before checking out so they knew they had enough money for it, the line would go a little faster. Sure, I admit that I get tired of waiting, but I try to just keep to myself and keep myself occupied. Usually I'll look at the tabloid magazines while I'm waiting. Or I'll make up little games in my head like "If I scratch my nose while looking at people how many people will scratch their nose as well." Try it. It's actually rather fun.

i was looking
at this article when i thought of something I saw the other day while driving.
An african american woman was driving with her four children in the car. There were two in the back, looked around ages 4-5.
There was what looked like a seven year old in the front, holding a 1-2 year old in her lap! The mother keep fussing at the 7 year old, to hold the child properly or something. Since she wasnt paying attention to the road, her car kept swerving in and out her lane. I couldnt believe how she put her children at risk, next time get a damn car seat. You can get one used at the Salvation Army i bet.

France Bans the Term 'E-Mail'
(AP) - Goodbye "e-mail", the French government says, and hello "courriel" the term that linguistically sensitive France is now using to refer to electronic mail in official documents. The Culture Ministry has announced a ban on the use of "e-mail" in all government ministries, documents, publications or Web sites, the latest step to stem an incursion of English words into the French lexicon. The ministry's General Commission on Terminology and Neology insists Internet surfers in France are broadly using the term "courrier electronique" (electronic mail) instead of e-mail a claim some industry experts dispute.
