    I delivered to a movie set the other night. $507 order. Filled my car up with pizzas and calzones.
    My windows were all fogged up and I was sweating.
    Food was supposed to be at the set at 9:30. Didn't come out till 9:36.
    Takes me ten minutes to get to the place because they had all the streets blocked off, and I had to keep pulling over to let the trucks and vans get by.
    This one bitch complains that the pizzas weren't labeled which is an honest concern since there were like 30 of them. She tells me to tell my people that late and non-labeled pizzas do not fly with her people.
    Tipped me $28.
    On the plus side, I saw Drew Barrymoore and I'm not bragging or anything but she smiled at me and totally wanted my dick.
    See, I love it when they blame the workers inside and not the driver, cause it's usually not our fault.

    retail...blah. Customers are the devil. Some guy got pissed at me because I would give him 30 % off his whole freakin' purchase. I'm not risking my job so you can save 10 dollars.

    My bookstores changing it's return policy to no longer accept returns without receipt at the end of the month, and people are already bitching at me about it. It's like they think we have no right to have a policy.

    I's really thinking about finding a job that has nothing to do with the general public...

    You know, the nice thing about being one of only two IT people in a company with 10 locations across canada is that there is virtually no chance of me losing my job unless the entire company goes under or we are bought out by somebody so huge that they don't need another Tech (in which case I'd probably get an awesome severance package).

    Still want to win the lottery though.

    That "The customer is always right" theory is bullshit.

    The more accurate saying would be "The customer is almost right, 10% of the time, maybe."

    When I work on the floor and it's busy I get mad tips plus profit sharing.

    My hope is to hire some reliable help soon that will ultimately stay on, so in two or so years the place can pretty much run itself.

    Yesterday was crazy busy since people stayed home Sat because of the Hurricane, and all the goddamn high schoolers need to come in and get there required reading.

    This one damn girl was looking for "Catching Rye" by that "J.D. Salmender Guy" and the computer said it would be in "Some sort of fiction area". Her mom looked so embarrassed.

    That's really why I had to get out of retail, people getting angry at me for reasons beyond my control

    The funniest part was that as I was waking to the section the girl kept trying to help me and saying shit like "J.D. SalaMENder, in fiction" and the mom was all, "She knows where it is", but then the dumb ass kid would start again, "Remember, Catching Rye"

    Interestingly I'm in the process of leaving a job in which I'm one of 4 IT people in a company with 30+ branches across the UK. My job was basically to sit on my arse all day, answer support queries and generally do very little actual work whilst spending 90% of my time playing flash games or reading.

    I'm leaving it to go to a job that's more challenging, and will actually require me to do some work.

    i love people who think theyre entitled to a discount just cause its a display model

    we fucking built the bike yesterday you asshole and were waiving the assembly fee what the fuck is wrong with you

    the most we can offer them is 10% which even for the most expensive bike comes out to be only $15

    if you ask for a display discount before i offer to waive the assembly charge then i will call the cashier up front to make sure they charge assembly, which is $10
