Thursday's Tirade...

Yes... I realize today isn't Thursday. However, my Thursday was full of work and other things. So I didn't have a chance to tirade like I wanted...

I just had my first workout in... well... let's just say it had been awhile. Afterwards I realized I was falling back into my old, lazy ways. Mostly because my legs felt like lead and refused to move. Which-- naturally-- gave me a segue into thinking about how lazy people are-- which of course made me think of where I work... Thus, a tirade is to be had. This one will focus on the workplace. I see lots of interesting things happening there...

Things that annoy me in the working world:

1. People who wear their pajamas out in public. Really people? You had absolutely no other choice but to wear your pajamas outside of your house? Where are all your other clothes? Do you even OWN other clothes? How hard is it to take 5 minutes and change into normal clothes? And I am not referring to children here- I am talking about adults. Do us all a favor and go buy some normal clothing you would prefer to wear over your pjs. Thanks.

2. People who try on the same shirt-- same size-- in 2 different colors. Once again-- it's the same size. It's going to look the same. Just do me a favor-- as a sales associate-- and just try on one shirt. Cause chances are you aren't going to get either one, and I'll end up having to board fold them back to perfection.

3. Placing larger sized clothing on the bottom of a shelf or pile.This is not the fault of any particular person. But seriously, we need to realize that larger people tend to be less willing to bend back down and return that larger size to the bottom of the pile. Instead, they are going to fling it everywhere else. Or maybe this is just people in general. For shame.

4. Customers who steal things and leave the evidence behind. In random places. First of all-- how cheap are we that we need to steal makeup from a store? Or how about an ice-cream bar? Or a soda? You'd be surprised how much is stolen from a store on a daily basis. And you'd be even more surprised by the items stolen. I've found evidence of all of the above stolen-- plus things like jewelry, cameras, video games, and various items of clothing. As a society we are so cheap. Just fork over the few bucks and buy it. And please stop leaving behind the evidence-- stuffed in a pile of dress pants.

5. The "customer needs assistance" bell. This one should be self-explanatory. I heard the bell the first time. It takes me a minute to walk to the dressing room. But if you would like-- I can try sprinting there. Then maybe you won't feel the need to ring the bell 10x in a row. Oh- and in case you didn't realize- we left the dressing room doors unlocked. I hope you feel a little stupid when I open the door without a key. *cue smug face*

I'm sure there is much, much more to be found in the workplace. Do you ever see annoying people habits where you work? Or do you ever notice the same things I do? I hope I'm not alone. Maybe I'm just getting grumpier in my old age...

  1. I will mostly agree with your tirade. However, I am the person who will try on the different colored shirts. Cause I want to know how each color will look! But I try to be a polite customer and either put the clothes back myself (if I can make them look nice) or I hand them to the dressing room attendant with that apologetic smile... That makes it ok, right?

    The problem I have at the bookstore is with rude people. I get customers who snap at me for things that are beyond my control. And even as I apologize, I'm thinking that I want to call their mothers. Or people will come to the register on their cell phones and instead of asking the person on the phone to hold, they continue their conversation and still expect me to ring up their purchases quickly. I have to ask at least 3 questions per transaction (sometimes more) and then they get huffy with me because they are on their phone!

    It's good to vent!

  2. I particularly agree with your first comment about pajamas. Also, those velvet jump suits that you see ladies wear should be lumped into the same category. If you're going to go work out, fine, wear them. But seriously, try and dress halfway decent when you're not. - Your Bro.
