Oh, that's fine, EB, if you have nothing to rant about at the moment. In fact, I need to just hear some non-rant talk.
No, my lap rants are just that, nothing euphemetic. For a basic rate, I just sit and listen, trying to appear at least halfway interested. I will
react with facial reactions, like an angry scowl, for a small fee. Then if the customer wants me to verbalize, that's another fee, but I can sure get
into the verbal stuff..."No way!", "That's terrible!"...stuff like that.
The big bucks are when I use my hands and arms to gesture wildly, while I say, "WTF??" I keep it all above waist...I'm not into physical abuse,
like kicking the customer's shins.
I will role play. Say a customer wants me to react like his wife or mother or mother-in-law, in that case I might say things like, "Oh, darling, you
were so brave to yell at the cashier like that." or "You stupid jerk! You said what?! Now I'll never be able to face those people again!" or
"Mad, schmad. Getting angry like that is not good for your health.".
Actually, I should be paying my customers. After listening to other people's rants, mine seem less important.
