Christmas and All That Crap



Now I remember why I hate the holidays so much.

People are so fucking rude around Christmas time.

Yes, I get that you have to go buy gifts for everyone. I get that you have to fight through the crowds at the mall and I also get that everything is so freaking expensive.

But it's not my fault and you shouldn't treat me like shit when you come into my store.

I hate the holidays. It's full of people that don't say a word to us when they walk into the store. Almost everyone belts out what they want before we finish even saying 'Good Morning' to them. God forbid I make a mistake on the register because then I have to get yelled at about how I made a mistake and they aren't paying $20 for a pack of cigarettes. It's a mistake, you asshole, chill the fuck out while I fix it.

My favorite part about the holiday is Christmas morning. While everyone is waking up early or sitting around opening gifts with their family and getting ready to have the in-laws over for the holidays, there is a 3 hour window when I'm all by myself in the store and not one customer comes in that morning. It's bliss.

Merry Christmas, and remember to be friendly to your local cashier. They have the shitty job of ringing you up on Christmas morning.

  1. Everyone whose ever worked as a cashier can appreciate this. I know that I'm always extra nice just cuz I know exactly what it is like around the holidays in retail.

  2. I used to be a cashier and I made the mistake of getting the wring size of some old man. He came in raging and yelling and caling one lady "bitch". As a result of this scene I was fired.

  3. I'm sorry that you have to work on Christmas, that totally sucks.
    All those idiot people who don't observe Christmas as a holiday should be the ones working it.
    Merry Christmas to you anyways.

  4. Oh I love the people that belt out orders before you finish greeting them. It really sets the tone for the rest of the transaction: irritation.

  7. @ venom...why are people idiots because they don't observe Christmas as a holiday? That is just plain rude and unnecessary.

  9. Wow, you're blog is really interesting (I've added it to my reader). And yeah, I used to be a cashier too...I definitely aware of how sucky people can be this time of year.

    Anyway, Merry Christmas! I look forward to your next blog!

  10. Hope your Christmas was better than mine. I got cussed at for refusing to sell a guy lottery tickets for his clearly underaged daughter. I didn't mind the cussing so much. I was just appalled that he did it in front of his young daughter and other customers. Ugh.

  11. Christmastime, ironically, can bring out the worst in people.

  12. Shit, that blows that you had to work Christmas!!! I only take jobs now where the biggest holidays are closed days, because I can't tolerate those snot-nosed, self-entitled stupid motherfuckers who think the world owes them something. Bad enough tolerating them the rest of the year.

    I hope your Christmas was still a little bit merry! ;)
