Today was extremely busy. So busy, in fact, that I got pissed off at a regular customer.
This woman has been coming into our store for about 15 years now. She is, of course, a lottery customer. Ever since I started working there full-time, she made sure that I was the only person that printed her lottery tickets. So for about 8 years now, I've played her tickets for her.
She's become the most annoying person on the planet.
She will come in and get angry if I'm not there. Get angry as in yelling at whoever IS there about why I'm not there.
If I haven't pre-warned her that I'm taking a day off, she will bitch about it to my co-workers. She complains about me, yet buys me Christmas presents every year.
She sometimes calls on the phone to give me her numbers if she's going to be late. If I don't answer the phone, she repeatedly calls every 60 seconds until someone answers the phone. One time I refused to answer the phone and I swear it rang 20 times within a half hour before I couldn't take it anymore and picked up.
The thing that irritates me most about this lady is that after every transaction with her, she will confirm with me what day I am working next. I've been dealing with this lady for 8 years now, you think she'd know my freaking schedule by now.
Fortunately I pissed her off today by telling her that I won't be in on Saturday. I could see the steam coming from her ears. I swear I even think I saw Satan in her eyes.
Hopefully she wins the lottery one day and leaves me alone for good.
