I hissed and gripped my foot when I read this holy fuck are you alright!?
i am ok but my toe still hurts an hour and a half later…i cleaned it and wrapped it up and i’m just sort of avoiding putting pressure on it
luckily it hit near the top of the toenail so i haven’t lost too much of it (yet)
i was rummaging around the fridge and i disturbed a bottle of mayonnaise and it fell and hit my big toe and smashed the toenail
today i was browsing around my store after i had clocked out, and some customers that were in the same section as me were searching, in vain, for nightlights. they said, “he said they were back here by the door! where are the nightlights??”
i took a quick look and found the nightlights on a sidecap and said to the woman who was nearby, “well, there are some nightlights right here!”
she said, “the kind that plugs in?”
i said, “yeah!”
and she went “ohhhh!! you should work here!!”
and i laughed and said, “i DO work here”
and she said “okay”
you can have followers on facebook now??
i’m being followed by someone who friend-requested me, except i don’t know her at all so i didn’t accept the friend request
she’s married to a guy who went to my church, except this guy was in a different age group than me and we never talked to each other. ever.
we didn’t go to the same schools either, and i haven’t seen him for like 6 years
i do not know this woman who is married to him at all
why did she friend-request me and what does following mean on facebook
Bling bling is always a no-no.
ALSO YESTERDAY when i was supervising, a couple came into my cashier’s line with two full sets of dishes that had been marked down from $79.99 to $39.99 (there was a big WAS/NOW sticker that said WAS $79.99/NOW $39.99) and my cashier scanned them in and called me over to look at the screen, which said $3.99 for each set
and the customers were like “is something wrong?” and the cashier was like “well it’s not ringing up at the right price” while i was looking up the price change history on the computer, and the customer said, “ringing up too high or too low?” and the cashier said “too low” and the customer was like “oh!” and i was looking up the price and sure enough, the computer said $3.99, so i called my manager to confirm, and he was like “yeah, that’s right.”
so i said to the customer, “these dish sets are now $3.99” and they were super excited and said, “we’re going to go back for the last set!!!” so i helped them get their third set
sometimes we mark things down and just never bother to update the price on the signs or the stickers and the customers get an incredibly nice surprise
a few weeks ago a customer came up to my line with this scratched up set of $20 wall hooks and she was like “all of the ones on the floor are like this…do you think you could mark it down a little?” so i asked my manager about it and she came up and saw the thing and was like “yeah, they come in like that…the people who ship them don’t package them properly so they all get dinged up…i’m going to mark it down”
now usually we give 10% off damaged merchandise, and 20% if it’s substantially damaged, but my manager was like “yeah 20% probably isn’t enough for that. i’m just gonna give it to you for $5.” like damn that is a 75% markdown
i was shocked but i wasn’t gonna question it because that manager is usually pretty mean and she was being super nice and i didn’t want to ruin it
today i was ringing people up and trying to keep up when i heard my phone beep and go “hello hello sara” so i picked up the phone and my manager was like “ok there are two customers coming up with a folding chair and the lady has a green vest and when they come up just give them a 20% code 9 accommodation” and i was like “ok” and i looked up and they were walking towards me
and they came to my line and i did the code 9 and i logged it and as they were looking at their receipt they were like “UM EXCUSE ME WHERE IS THE OTHER 20% THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE 40%” and they were being SUPER fussy about it, like…ok i don’t know who put salt in your cereal this morning but you need to check your attitude and i said “oh my manager only told me about the 20% accommodation” and they said “NO WE HAD A 20% COUPON [imaginary coupon, that is, because they didn’t bring a coupon into the store and just expected us to give them 40% off when they didn’t even BRING THEIR 20% COUPON AND WE ACTUALLY NEVER GIVE 40% OFF THAT IS NOT A THING AT OUR STORE the max we give is 33% off] TOO YOU NEED TO GIVE US THAT” and i was like okay i will fix that
so i returned their item and rang it up again and added a 20% coupon and ended up giving them like $12 back
and they were like “hmmph that’s right”
but what i DIDN’T tell them is that 20% off something that already has 20% taken off is NOT 40% off, it’s actually 36% off, so they can be ornery and rude all they want because they’re shit at math
i wasn’t but i am now! thank you anon! <3
aww thank you anon!! u//w//u
i blow-dried my hair for the first time in a long time and it looks like i just stepped straight out of the ’70s
