New house being built right next to mine. Same builder so the houses look similar, which doesn't bother me.

But why did they have to pick the exact same color siding as us.

People that wait until the very last minute to do their shopping need to be slapped around. I once had a lady come in and ask for service after we were closed.

Me: "I'm sorry ma'am, but we're closed."
Lady: "Can you do it anyway?"
Me: "No, I'm sorry."
Lady: (confused) "Why not?"
Me: "Because we're closed."

LOL!

I used to lie and tell people that our registers closed down automatically at 5 after 9 at the last place I've worked. I would hit the 'print screen' button, and a whole bunch of junk would start printing out. I'd be all 'ooooooh, so sorry! Our registers just went offline so I won't be able to ring you up!'

My friends can't figure out why I get angry when they do that to stores and restaurants. If a restaurant closes at 11 and it's 10:30, don't go. It's not ****ing cool. If a story closes at 8 and it's 7:45, I don't go. I don't like to be rushed while shopping and years of working retail has made me hate last minute shoppers. It's the golden rule. You wouldn't want to deal with it, so don't make others deal with it because of you.

I tried that about a month ago. A couple came in at 9:00 while I was cleaning and wanted to order. I told them we were closed and the lady went and complained, even though I told them that we have pre-sliced meats around the corner for them to grab. I got chewed for that by management, trust me.

Yes, it was a stupid thing I did, I admit that. Telling people that we were closed an hour before it was true? Not smart. But from my perspective at the time, it had been a slow as hell day and I was badly in need of something to do after hours of boredom, so I cleaned. (Even customers mentioned how dead it was...hours before it actually slowed down.) It always amazes me that the store can almost literally have zero customers over the span of several hours, only for people to come in during the last hour.

Exactly. We always say that we can tell if a customer has worked in a similar job to ours, based on how they act. Some are totally understanding, others dont have a clue.

Yeah, I hated that too. EVERYWHERE seems to want experience, even for stuff like filling the shelves, but obviously you're not gonna have any experience if you're looking for your first job. You end up in the depressing loop of "needs experience to get job/needs job to get experience". My only suggestion would be to simultaneously look for actual, paid jobs, while also asking at different places if you can do a couple of weeks of unpaid work experience. If you do get some work experience and you try hard and if you're lucky enough for a position to become available, you might be kept on as a proper employee. If not, at least you've got something for your resumé and maybe learnt some skills for it too. Sorry for the lecture, but I'm trying to use my experience to help out

In our store, we used to close all the doors a few minutes before closing, and start cashing out registers (leaving one open for stragglers still shopping).

When the people inside wanted to leave, that's the only time we'd open the door. And for anyone trying to get in, well, if the locked door they were pulling at wasn't hint enough, we'd just shrug at them and mouth "closed, come back tomorrow"

That sounds nice, but the deli closes at 10:00 and the larger store at 12:00. I always wanted the deli to stop service at 9:00 and the employee leaves at 10:00. But that would cut into profits, so...

Tell me about it. I've been looking for art related jobs and most of them require some years of experience or knowledge of programs I never learned in school, which makes me feel like what I did in school wasn't good enough, and that I should probably get a Master's Degree to better my chances.

But this morning I went to apply for a temp stcokperson position in an Museum store, and even though I waited for over three hours on line, I think I go the job, but mostly because the guy interviewing me said they take a lot of people. But I also went to apply for temporary positions at Old Navy and Macy's because I think there's a good chance that I won''t be given too many hours and the first store. I know I can get better jobs, but right now, something is better than nothing.

The ones who really piss me off are customers who come back once or twice during the shift; and then want to come back AGAIN 30 minutes before closing.

I hate that my ex was pestering my friends on Facebook, and one of them let slip that I was single. I made up a fake boyfriend so's he would leave me alone. He used to message me several times a week till I told him I was seeing someone, then my friend was all like 'no, I have never heard of [insert name here].' Thanks, man.....thanks a lot. Now he's back to constantly pestering me!

Wow, that place stays open pretty late.

One time when I was counting down the registers, and the metal gates were all down, I saw this guy approaching carrying a big bag with our store name on it. He got up to the gate and began shouting over top of the vacuum. I looked up from counting the money and the dude was like:

"Hey! I have a return!"
I said that we were closed.
He said "It's just a return, I don't want to have to come back tomorrow!"
I told him I didn't want him to come back tomorrow either, but I guess we were both out of luck.


I think it should be mandatory that people should have to work 6 months in a service based industry. Like retail, waitress, etc.

Ironically my brother just broke up with his girlfriend for the umpteenth time, and now when I was going to send him a funny video on Facebook his account has been deactivated. Maybe you can try to block him, and if that doesn't work deactivate the account for a week or two. If not then just get Kane to make a gif and it'll all be better after you eat a sammich.

You're my hero. You've said what we all want to say.


On a totally different note, I just had my birthday dinner with friends of my Dad's. We were having desert and the conversation turned to politics (always a bad sign, as I'm much more liberal than the others). We started talking about the Middle East and my Dad's girlfriend (who is a hardcore Christian) mentioned that we should just let the Arabs wipe each other out and "make more room for us." "How very Christian," I thought.

And people wonder why I want to leave this county so much.

Kinda reminds me of what happened to me during the summer, except it involved my two friends who broke up when the girl found out the guy cheated on her. She would constantly pester me about how she was suspicious of him and other girls just because they would post on his wall, and it wouldn't even be anything that hints that were doing anything together. The sad part is that she asked me to be there for him and mentor him, which I did, but all of her friends were talking bad and spreading rumors that she started to believe he moved on, when in reality, he would pester me everyday about how depressed he was without her, and whether or not I had spoken to her recently.

But yeah, like I told them to do, just block or delete him and tell them to do the same, unless he's good friends with them.

This.

I especially hate when I'm in the middle of something and I reply, then I stay a little distracted because I'm expecting a reply that never comes.

Amen. My friends do this too, and don't realize how ****ing rude and inconsiderate it is.

I was 45 minutes late once because this woman literally took like an hour scouring the CDs. It's like, what could you possibly not have looked at by now?
