Dear Customers: If you had to pull the door open to get into the store, why do you assume they're automatic on the way out? They will not become automatic doors just because you now have a cart full of stuff.

Happy Valentine's, everyone!

Today at work was return hell. But on the upside, my manager noticed annual employee reviews had been overlooked for three years (even I'd forgotten about them!) and did them all. The end result? I got a raise!

To celebrate inventory finally being over, I treated myself to a new game: Monster Rancher DS!

It has eaten my attention since.

Sorry for the lack of..everything. Inventory at work has been kicking my ass.

So, it's a well-known fact that new muses are very ping-sensitive.

It's a little bit lesser-known that even atheists will use phrases like "oh god" in exasperation.

It's very well known that this is one of retail's busiest months with the least patient and most careless customers.

Long story short:

[ profile] bound_creator kept getting accidentally pinged at work. We're both irritated with each other.

The angels are quietly amused. The others are openly amused.

I barely got any sleep. Normally, this means I would crash after classes are over and take a nap, but I can't do that today because I have work after school.

Anyone have any tips aside from coffee or apples(already using the former, don't have the latter) to renewing energy during the day?

Ugh, sorry, DR guys. Too tired to tag today.

Damn you, inventory. x_x

Maybe tomorrow morning before work.

This happened today. Seriously.

(I'm working the register, and as I finish a transaction, the phone rings.)

Me: Thank you for calling *****, how can I help you?

Customer on Phone: Hello, ma'am, are you a manager?

Me: No, ma'am, I'm not, would you like to-

Customer: Do you have a Caucasian manager I can speak to?

Me: (trying to keep my voice calm) ...Ma'am, may I ask why that's important?

Customer: Oh trust me, I have a reason. Is there a Caucasian manager I can speak to?

Me: No, ma'am.

Customer: Is there a manager in the store?

Me: Yes, ma'am, would you like me to-

Customer: Is she African-American?

Me: ...Yes, ma'am. (by this point, I've failed at trying to sound helpful and my voice is completely flat)

Customer: And she's the only manager in the store right now?

Me: Yes.

Customer: Could I speak with her, please?

(I put the customer on hold and called the manager in question to the front. I never learned what she said to her, but this came as a shock. Most of our customer base is very open-minded.)

Today has just been all downhill. Nyx is sick and I'm worried, I worked half the hours I was supposed to and I need those hours, and my income tax refund is only two digits large.

On top of all that my boss is angry with me for being a slower worker than the new girl, and won't take "you misinterpreted what you saw" for an answer. (I was not "standing around", you happened to walk by while I was getting more security tags for the clothes!)

I don't want to find a new job, I know the store like the back of my hand and that makes things so much easier on me.

I dunno. Maybe I should just go to bed and hope tomorrow makes up for it somehow.

I don't wanna go to work today...there's gonna be so many people...and I'll probably have to stay until 9... (that's 10 for the majority of people I tend to play with) Argh. I love the customer base at Tuesday Morning, but sometimes I just hate retail.
