dearest customers

Post by Terrene » Mon Dec 22, 2008 8:26 pm

Yes I work here. I am not folding clothes because I enjoy it, it is my job (okay I kind of do enjoy it. sooo soft). Also, notice the name tag? Is it too small or do you just think I am some clothes-folding weirdo that likes everyone to know her name?

You are not Paris Hilton, you are not even rich. If you were you wouldn't be shopping here (though our clothes are really nice, rich people are snobs and only purchase expensive things). So leave the ridiculously tiny dog at home.

Speaking of dogs, you, lady with the doggy stroller? You're stupid and a nuisance. Your dog does not need a stroller. Your dog has legs. You are absurd and I hate you.

And lastly, people with dogs on leashes: please do not be upset when I approach your dog going "awwww widdle doggy!" I love dogs.

PS dear guy who keeps asking me for a dollar: NO YOU ARE NOT GETTING MY MONEY. You are not even filthy like a beggar should be, also you are fat and I do not trust a fat homeless person. If you want my money you be quiet and hold a sign and look depressed like everyone else.

Peta is not to blame for this, since they think owning a pet is enslavement.

Boy, I know how you feel. I work for a college bookstore, and I feel like the most hated person in the world. I'm sorry that your textbook for your accounting class costs $200, but I'm not here to listen to your life story. And I really wish we could charge some kind of restocking fee for the people who ask for their books...only to write down the ISBN of the book to find it online. I'm sorry, but you're a very brave person. You're putting a lot of trust in the fact that the person selling the book is putting down the right information. You're trusting that he's not going to send you an instructor's copy or an international edition that you can't get rid of. You're trusting that he'll actually ship the book to you in time for your class. And quite frankly, people that do that are more than a little rude. We do a lot of work to unload and stock these books. We're completely under-appreciated for the work we do. And it's really bad when someone comes to sell back their books. I'm sorry, but name any other place where you can buy something, use the crap out of it, then bring it back in four months and expect to get any decent amount of money for it. Stupid people.

Please. Invest in some paragraph breaks.

Less than that actually. We have a smaller markup than most textbook stores.

And exactly why am I a dick? I don't like doing all the work I do and then get spat on. Not literally, but you know what I mean.

And paragraph breaks, to my knowledge, are to break up ideas, and I was working with the same train of thought.

Actually, they are to improve readability.

You write for an audience. No one cares if you don't use a paragraph break in your journal.

Ideas =/= train of thought.

Paragraph breaks are there to avoid great walls of text.
Rather than thinking 'Why should I use one?', you should be thinking 'Could I use one here?'.

Your self-righteous rage over people wanting to save hundreds of dollars by purchasing their text books online, and your anger at having to stock and shit. That is what you are paid to do. Get over it.

Next time you need something right now and can't wait for shipping or pay for it expedited, remember the whiny sales monkeys you have to rely on.

Of course, they'll probably just spit in your eye, because that's what people should do to asshats.

Well, if you ever go into an American Aldi's, you'll get a taste of that wonderful German hospitality to their customers.
