Oh I know the feeling. *Huggles*

Not too long ago, I had a lengthy conversation about the definition of "on call" complete with tears and near hysteria. I finally had to explain to her inbetween all of her cries that I know the system is flawed but it is the only one we have. I also had to tell her that if she went outside for a cigarette, she could very well miss her much needed appointment. Oh where or where is that lorazapam mister I so want.(it is a very nice sedative:-D)

btw, you have got to explain to Frank that you have to have more time. lol

*LOL* Almost as good as the flexoril and lortabs that I miss so much (but the hurt back I had that made them necessary is gone, as well as the pills). *pout*

You poor darling. You've just been hammered at work lately. *snuggles* Having gone through the ER this morning for leg issues, I can tell you that I truly do not miss working there. At all. Well, I might miss the money, but nothing else.

*hugs* That doesn't sound like a very good day.

I once had a man call up the bookstore I used to work in asking if I could find him a book about how Hitler was the founder of IBM, only after the first hour did he tell me he wasn't actually sure there was a book like that *headdesk* (In his defense it was a rather 'alternative' bookstore)And I also had a woman on my first day call and yell at me about how long her book was taking.

*more hugs*

*hugs* OMG, Grace! *dies* I knew people called bookstores for random reasons, but that's one of the best I've ever heard!

Oh, hon... *huge hugs* Boy, have I been there. Working at various retail places in and out of the mall for ~10 years, I pretty much saw it all. Overall, people are dumb, they're too lazy to read signs, labels, and packaging, and they think they're always right (when mostly they're not). Which is probably how I came to be the worst retail worker ever - I'd just rather the store be empty and everyone would just go away and leave me alone. *rolls eyes*

*more huggles*

Trust me, I spent all day Sunday repeating "Next job's a desk job...next job's a desk job..." over and over again. Either that or a job like Lush. I could deal with the stupid if I worked some place like that. I'm just really getting sick of rich-beach-folk stupid. Snobby silver-spoon stupid. *makes face and kicks yet another Paris Hilton look-alike*

Urgh, I dealt with that kind of crap when I lived in NC. The places I worked down there were both on Atlantic Beach, and we got all the tourists. Thank gods the locksmith I worked for (I ran the shop) didn't get too much foot traffic - it was mostly calls from idiots that lost their keys on the pier or needed their ginormous beach mansions re-keyed b/c they gave keys to everyone and everyone. O_o

*hugs you*

Though it was quite amusing, I'm sorry that you have to deal with such incompetence on a regular basis.

It wouldn't be quite so bad if we weren't stretched so thin. I miss the times when I had enough time to do my job and make enough hours to justify being there. *kicks them* At least holiday hours are coming up soon, although it brings more idiots with them.

YAY! *tacklehugs* How are things, my Yon?
