Yeah, he's a banned spammer. Normally we'd delete this thread too, but people were having too much fun with it by the time we got here.

Went to work on my day off to deliver the door key (we have 5 people who need the key and only 3 keys so sometimes someone has to come in just to drop off the keys) since I was there anyway I decided to do some shopping.  I am not in uniform, I'm wearing jeans and a t-shirt.

One of the semi regular customers saw me and asked me to go up and open one of the registers.  I nicely apologized and said that I am not scheduled today so the system would not let me log in to run the register.  On my way out saying goodbye to the manager he told me that said customer complained that I was rude to her and refused to open a register for her last night(the night I worked).

I told him that she just asked me to open the register just a few minutes ago, and that she wasn't even there last night.

What is wrong with people?  Do some people just think others exist only to serve them?  I am always happy to go out of my way to help her and our other regulars when I am working, my manager even tells me I do that too much and need to focus more on my assigned tasks throughout the day.  But the one time I legitimately cannot help her, and she goes and complains about me.

Ontopic:  I'm afraid to look, how big is the sigtext thread now?  That thing has to be nearly a decade old by now.

I like to think of it as a gallery of art: Some are exquisite and hand crafted, some are just incomprehensible. And yet we admire both, even if just for ironyís sake.

I'm amazed you've managed to go any amount of time in the service industry without already realizing this.

Yes, some people are hilariously entitled brats who don't even consider service employees as people, let alone actually care about their feelings. Or work schedules. Or anything that isn't directly concerned with getting them exactly what they want right now.

It doesn't matter if it isn't in stock, or isn't on sale anymore, or even if it doesn't physically exist. They want it, therefore it needs to be provided to them. If it's not delivered immediately, someone will have to pay for this slight on their honor.


It really doesn't even matter at that point if they get the product or if the person who gets punished had anything to do with the process, all that matters is that they get to be "right" about something and exert power over someone else. That's really all it is; it's a power play by someone who generally isn't very powerful.



Thankfully, these people are relatively uncommon... More or less. You will get some absolutely clueless individuals who quite frankly do not understand how anything works and really don't grasp the concept that the person behind the counter actually has a full life beyond work, because they've only ever seen that person when they're standing behind that counter. These folks are mostly just shocked by revelations to the contrary, and will be fine so long as you manage to avoid them feeling threatened or insulted; in which case they get defensive and lash out.

But then there are some pointedly assholeish characters who specifically cause and exacerbate problems so that they can exploit the structure of the service industry, and play out a little power fantasy. And those people make sure that alcohol continues to be consumed in large quantities.


And no, this isn't a millenial/baby boomer thing... Fuckwittery transcends all generations and cultures, it is truly the great equalizer.

Most come from various conifers, or are otherwise volatile organic chemicals of botanical origin, which were evolved defenses against fungal infestation.   There are several artificial ones as well,  and artificial non VOCs such as concentrated peroxides or ozone.

I thought this was discussing the post before it until I checked the quote.

Entitled mold has been infecting our society since the beginning.

Reading his name would trigger it. Thinking of him would trigger it. No other circumstances would trigger it- it was strictly related to the concept of Bill Clinton entering the conscious mind.

I invite you to Ameripol if you want to discuss that but if you're just venting then that's cool too.

That's just me venting up, so I don't expect anyone to debate me. And I doubt that someone will want to protect the honor of Libertarians of all people.

I got some libertarian friends but they don't like Putin AFAIK and they can defend themselves.
