I’ve already had fights and cursed out about 5 relatives including my mom, dad, brother, husband and cousin.
I’ve had verbal words with about 5 clients as well, mainly over their lack of wanting to pay my invoices in a timely manner and/or get services for dirt cheap or free as if I am The Salvation Army or something.
Now, I need to reign in my terror especially when it comes to those closest to me like my family and those who have the power to keep me in business (clients). I know they’ll excuse my craziness and let me blame the pregnancy, but still there really is no excuse for taking them for granted.
But for the rest of those crazies out in the world…hmph! It’s every man and woman for him/herself.
Case in point: I went to the ghetto discount grocery store yesterday. I only ventured in b/c it was on my way home from the local university where my oldest son takes Kindermusik class.
I just wanted to dash in and get a few items, but of course 2 turns into 3 and next thing you know you have a shopping cart full of items.
It was okay until I got to the check out line and my oldest started helping me load the items onto the conveyor belt of aisle 5 just as the last customer was wrapping up her purchases.
Just then, the check out girl, turns off her light and tells me she’s closed.
At that point, she was a good candidate for a verbal bashing because I started loading the items BEFORE she turned off her light and if I didn’t tell myself, it’s late, I have to pee and this is the “ghetto” supermarket after all, SHE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN IT GOOD THEN!
No… her verbal lashing would have to wait…for unfortunately only 2 minutes!
Just when I go to another line and halfway through loading, I see her ask a passing by shopper looking for an open line if she has WIC (WIC is women infants children, a government food subsidy for low income families).
When the woman nods “yes,” she shakes her head and shoos the woman away.
I’m thinking, “hold up, she’s not picking and choosing her check out customers, is she?”
I was right! I overheard her ask another passing by customer if all she had was the 5 gallons of water in her cart that needed checking out? The woman said, “yes”
She called the woman over and checked her out!
Of course, Raging Preggers Hormones Nelly over here was not going to let her get away with that madness.
“Excuse me. I thought you said you were closed. You see I’m pregnant right and made me unload half the conveyer belt and then I see you take another customer!”
Just then, I noticed that I had a shopping list in my hand and that sucker probably thought I too had WIC certificats and she just didn’t want to be bothered with whatever extra 1 or 2 steps a cashier has to go through to check out WIC customers.
If my son didn’t tell me he had to go pee and I too myself didn’t have a bladder full of pee, I was going to search for the Supervisor and report her lazy ass!
See the mediocre poor customer service craziness that shoppers in lower income areas must suffer through?
I think I calmed down once I got home and told my husband about it, but on the way home, I was so going to call the shoppers and report her behavior!
