I've realized that I can only handle working two days in a row at the store. I only work 4 days a week, but they are broken up into 2 day chunks.
This past week I had to work 3 days in a row, and I thought I was going to kill someone.
I never realized it, but by the second day at work I'm always crabby and can't wait to get home. I noticed that it's probably because I'm tired of seeing the same people every day. And I'm tired of talking to them about the same things every day. For example, the weather.
We had a snow storm the other day and for two days in a row that's all people talked about. Like there was nothing else to talk about in the world, but the crappy weather. Well, if the weather is so bad, then why are you out buying a 75 cent newspaper and then heading back home? Aren't you contributing to the traffic and dangerous driving conditions? Is your shitty newspaper worth it?
I literally rushed out of the store yesterday after my shift was over because I couldn't wait to get away from the place. It also doesn't help that I'll be on vacation in a few days and was stuck working this whole week instead of getting ready and packing.
I wondered this week what it would be like to tell a customer to go fuck themselves, but then I remembered that I didn't win the lottery and that I have to come back to work after I get back.
I will post a little next week, but I'll mostly be getting a much-needed break from shithead customers. I'm already dreading coming back to work in a week.
