i just remembered that livejournal is for venting about shit that doesn't really matter (with no character limits!) so that's exactly what i'm gonna do right now.|
one thing i've learned from years of retail is that people without control of their own lives like to create something to complain about because it makes them feel powerful. it's the laziest way to feel empowerment. these people are incredibly hard to be around, but instead of feeling anger, you should pity them. everything we do is either out of love or a cry for it. think about how sad it is that the best part of their day is ruining yours! think about all the other people they come into contact with that they treat exactly like they're treating you--at the bank, the grocery store, the car wash, their neighbors. they are constantly being disappointed! that really sucks for them. it's not personal, and sometimes you just can't help them.
