Rant your heart out.

Post  Rubydeath on Fri Oct 31, 2008 4:36 pm

Not sure how many of you read the main YPP forums but i was reading this recently.

http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=93015

The general theme of the post is a place to rant any problems, in some parts turning into a blog for regular posters.

Made me laugh so hard.. and actually gave me relief!!! There are people as stressed out with work as me at times.. good to know huh.

Thought, I'd start us off, after the week i've had, I have a need to rant.

(I work in retail as a training supervisor, soon to be signed off my course too (eek!!))

To ignorant customer #1.
You ask if i work here, I realise i'm wearing smart dress, not the company uniform, but do you fail to see my badge, my work fleece and the fact that I'm currently holding our scanner equipment along with paperwork and studying around my department. You then ask if i'm busy, funnily enough I was, unlike my other colleagues who are clearly stood in the next aisle talking. I consider replying, "Yes, too busy right now for your idiotic questions, of which I can clearly see there are more to come", deciding against this, I smile (more like a grimace) and ask you how I can help..

To ignorant customer #2. Personally, I too disagree with paying for a plastic carrier bag, however, whether its raining or not, we aren't obliged to give you one for free. The queue is growing, I can stand here calm for hours with you moaning, you complain we have no signage and that your a valued customer of ours. If you look above my head, next to your own head, onto the till surface, by the "please wait here" sign and if you'd cared to look at the 8ft poster in the foyer, you would have noticed madame. We've actually been telling our "valued" and to be honest all our customers for 4 months now, shows how often you shop here hmm. You kick up such a fuss, just for 1 pence.. I'm beginning to tire of repeating myself now, I'm suprised another customer hasn't thrown the penny at you to speed you up a little. Goodbye now, once you've paid, I'll wait to hear your complaint through to our head office. "Who's next please..." eventually..

To my lazy lazy staff member:I saw you looking through the Christmas magazine, we both know you should be working. You then had the cheek to come up to me and ask which item i prefered, thats it engage me in conversation for the hope that I would turn a blind eye to your laziness, well sorry miss, I'm trying to complete some paperwork as you can see. Now please, have the decency to return to your work and put down the magazine.

To the weird queue jumper #3:Sorry sir, i cannot take payment for items in my hand in the middle of the store, strangly enough too.. I don't carry cash around with me to give you change. I understand there is a slight queue yet you have no right to bypass that, so as i have explained twice, I will start serving on another till to help move the queue down.. Oh! thats not good enough for you hmm? No sir, you cannot pay at the back counter, please take your item to the front desk and stop trying to push your money into my hand.. Now your begging me.. sir.. really, thats so pathetic and your beginning to embarress me, I want you out of my store, follow me to the till please. I ask you to join my till, so you stand staring at me.. Sir! could you come here please, I explain i find queue hopping extremely unfair and that i'm not happy in serving you in such a way, you seem to ignore my words and just tell me i'm a wonderful person for doing this for you.. As you walk away, I wonder how many other stores you've tried that little scene in today with success.

To the lady who can clearly see i'm on the phone:You can see me typing away at the computer discussing a book with a customer via the phone, where does that give you the right to start talking to me, rather rude you'll see, so now I have to tell you I'm on the phone i'll be with you in one moment, then apologise to the lady on the phone, aswell as asking her to repeat what she just said.. once i put the phone down, you ask me where the diaries are.. "right behind you madame".. I wonder if ignorance is hereditary..


To my fellow Supervisor:Your a star, couldn't have got through this week without out you Very Happy thanks!!

More coming soon, I have daily examples of all this.. time for you to let off some steam?

This is an awesome idea Ruby. I have been in situations very similar to yours so i will probably be posting on this very often to vent on stressful days. Thanks for providing me with the place to do it :lol:

Why am I making all day a very stupid assigment?!? It is a lot of work and till now I've seen nothing new or interesting in it. I really don't understand why I have to do this for my bachelor, far too easy and boring.
Argh, I just have to say it and go on with the stupid things...
