With the holidays upon us, stores are going to be busy, tempers short, etc...
As a sort of, kind of, night manager in a supermarket I am going to be trying my very best to get you in and out of the store so you can get to your
next appointment. Really, I am...
But you know what? Things happen, computers crash, registers jam. People forget stuff. A little patience on your part will make things a lot
better. It does no one any good at all, for you to stand at the back of the line yelling at the poor bastard running the checkstand. He's doing the
best he can, it's not his fault the bloody flippin' computer jammed up, or crashed. It takes a minute to reboot, if you don't have that minute,
you need to plan your day a little better. As the old saying goes "Piss poor planning on your part, does not constitute an emergency on mine."
I have two checkers on the clock at night, that's it, you rude wanker...one of the computers has crashed, that means I got one checkstand open, and
the guy running it is going as quickly as he can. In a minute I'm going to have the other register back up, and we'll get you out the door. So
shut the hell up, and be patient.
But no, you just gotta stand there harrasing me, and my guys...so, guess what pal. You just said the magic word, you really shouldn't have started
calling the checker a bleeping blank. You want that case of beer? So sorry, you bleepin' blank, go get it else where. Get out of my store.
Buh-bye. Oh? you're going to kick my ass later? No you're not, because I just called the cops. Guess who they're going to believe...won't be
you, you hopeless wanker.
Now then, folks, can we get on with buying our turkey and cranberries with much beer on the side? Cool...
Thanks so much for your patience...
