As like all retail places, our store has a horrible playlist of current popular songs.  Aside from Christmas, and maybe two songs, it’s been the exact same playlist for nearly a year.
I want to find the people that decided this, tie them down, and make sure they listen to the music every day they work.

A quick robin phrase guide:
"I am not allowed to do this." = "Corporate/store/etc. policy says I can’t do this. If I do this, I will get written up and possibly fired."
"I am not allowed to do this." =/= "I am just choosing not to do this because I want to screw over customers."
In a retail setting, won’t = can’t = “HOLY FUCK I AM FOLLOWING CORPORATE/STORE/ETC. POLICY BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO FUCKING GET FIRED. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, CALL CORPORATE/STORE/ETC. CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER AND COMPLAIN ABOUT THEIR POLICIES THERE BECAUSE I HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THIS.”
It’s really not that hard, customers.

Last night, I was short staffed due to another store stealing my cashier. So I was the only one open at register one with the light but I was 5 feet away from the register scanning damaged merchandise while standing. A man saw me by the balloon counter and my co-worker who was cleaning the floor by seasonal. He decided to put his stuff down on register five belt, stood waiting to be served, and then staring directly at me as i was looking at him. Another customer comes up, I say ready and pointed to register one the old man finally comes over. Like I don’t fucking understand, how do people remember to breath or walk?!?!

PEOPLE ARE LAZY!

Remember this; just something that came to my mind after a typical exchange with the boss when he ‘demanded’ respect. Should be up in every office as a reminder.

There are many examples of this, but I’ll only list a few. Each has to do with impatient customers who can’t take two seconds to think, but just act. A common theme among all of them is that, if they’d just take a second to relax and wait, they’d realize I’ve got the whole thing under control.
1. The customer who swipes their card every 10 seconds.
Our card readers in the checkout lines display “Please swipe your card to begin transaction” as the default screen. That is, when I’m scanning a customer’s items, but haven’t actually hit “total” for them to pay, the card reader displays those words. The readers used to say “Transaction not started,” which was better, but still managed to confuse customers into thinking I wasn’t doing anything at all, when clearly the scanner is beeping every time I scan one of their items. But I digress. I get at least three or four customers a day who swipe their card every single time they see the words “please swipe your card,” even if it’s obvious there’s no price total on the screen indicating that I’m ready for them to pay, swiping their card before I’ve even started the transaction, or at the stupidest, swiping their card after the transaction’s finished and I’ve given them their receipt. Sometimes I’ve even had customers whom I’ve told, “I’ll let you know when it’s ready for your card,” who still continue to swipe it without me saying so. It’s like they’ve got the memory capacity of a goldfish: every time they notice the screen they swipe their card, get denied, look away for 10 seconds, look back and notice it again, and the whole process repeats.
2. The customer who walks away without their change
These people assume that swiping their card is all that’s required, if that. They’ll swipe and walk away, and I have to call them back for their change and receipt. When I’m working at the service desk, customers assume they just have to give me the item and let me scan it, and somehow I guess the money is magically returned to them without them actually receiving it. Like the people in number 1, I have to call back three or four a day who walk away without getting their money returned, which is what they came for in the first place. It even seems like it’s becoming more often the longer I work there, because customers in general refuse to stay for the entire transaction, no matter what they’re doing.
3. The customer that can’t tell you about their return without picking it up and waving it around
This customer jumps the gun because they can’t just wait three seconds for me to do their return, they have to pick it up and show me everything about it, describing every detail about its purchase and why they want to return it, as if they’re scared I won’t know what to do if I don’t know all these things. When someone puts items to be returned on my counter I will immediately flip them over so the barcode is facing up, making it easy for me to scan, but these people will then pick it up again and flip it back over. I had one lady who did this, so I flipped it back over to the barcode side. She then picked it up again, and put the barcode face-down. So, I turned it over again, barcode up. And again she flipped it back over, talking the whole time.

4. The Customer who tells you their phone number too early/too fast.

Trigger Warning: Rape, Violence, Torture

oyukiria

So, a while back I stumbled over the character Quiet from Metal Gear V.



The first time I saw her and the whole story about Kojima trying to justify his design with ever shittier arguments, I just got really really sad. Sad and angry actually, because even hardcore macho gamers admitted that this design was shit. Kojima’s excuse was that she’d been tortured and raped, and that’s why she was running around in a thong. You mean to tell me that in all that time she’s never found anyone who’d sell or give her some pants and a shirt? Isn’t the game taking place in a fucking desert? Where’d all her wounds and scars go? And her sunburns? What the fuck where you smoking to think that this would be a god idea?
I think I can say without bragging too much that even with my lack of knowledge concerning army stuff and outfits, I did a better job than Kojima on this one.
This can’t even be considered a redraw. It’s like starting a dress-up game from scratch.

This makes me incredibly mad. Usually, RHA is a mix between humor and seriousness when it comes to criticsizing bad female designs. However… when you go as far as sexualizing rape victims, that’s when I lose my cool.
I didn’t like Quiet’s design to begin with, nor the arguments they had in the beginning. But now… agh! There’s just so many things WRONG with how she’s designed now! If you’re going to write about something so serious and painful; make sure you do it with respect. You can’t justify this. You can’t. I could make an entire list why.
As for your Fix, good work! Now she DOES look like a character with an actual backstory now. One that fits both her setting, character and the backstory.

It’s easy to forget to zip-up your suit when your hair hinders your eyesight like that. That’s something I’ve learned in my never-ending quest to be more fashionable. Yes, hiding my face is fashionable. I have a face that was made for blogging. Much like Ooze Rachael.
