Work related ranting (per usual)

I feel very cranky.

Not that feeling cranky is very differnt from me.  I’m pretty much always in a cranky mood.

I have to close at work tonight, and since its *gag* Christmas shopping season *cough, choke* the store is staying open until 10 instead of 9, which means I’ll be getting off work at 11 instead of 10, which means I’ll be getting home at 11:30 instead of 10:30.  I’m sure you see the pattern.

The WORST is the week before Christmas though, when we close at 11pm, and I won’t be getting home until around 12:30. 

Customers may be willing to trample someone to death to get in the store, but you’ve got to break out the bullwhips and cattle prods to get them out again

I’ve been working there for years now and I’ve yet to figure out why its IMPERATIVE to buy lighted pine garland at that time of night.  Its not like they are art students with project due the next day who NEED that paint or clay or whatnot (though even they could have been bothered to come a little earlier I’m sure).  There is no NEED for christmas decorations at midnight.  Really, there’s not.

We’ve got new music in the store.  Popular music of the past decade, with some christmas tunes mixed in for good measure.

I know most of the songs, and I’m tempted to start singing at the top of my lungs about a quarter till close.  My singing has been known to cause ears to bleed.  Surely that will clean the place out.

GAH!

So I’ve turned to Neopets for my stress relief.  Been kicking tush at Key Quest this morning.  In fact, I’m gonna go do that right now.

    I know what you mean about getting customers out of the store. I once left my till when there were customers in the store after closing. I stopped getting paid at 8PM, and they were there at 5 past. Too late, bitches, lol. I fetched my coat and left. Nobody said anything to me about it.

    I don’t see how you do it working in customer service. My mouth has only gotten worse over the years, my patience is exhausted, and I can get ill pretty darn easily. Id probally also get fired & have assault charges on me pretty darn easily too :) haha

    Speaking of you singing…I have a whole cassette tape of that. From singing Achy Breaky Heart to belting out some Heres a quarter, Call someone who cares. Yeah, we were super cool…..
