Worker Woes

The shit we put up with.

Homeless people

The homeless man in my neighborhood is named JJ, his favorite food is pizza. He has a dog named Princess. People say being homeless is the fault of the person, perhaps they are drug addicts or spend all their money on booze. Maybe life became so hard for them that they grew depressed and just gave up on life. Regardless, a person is hungry, a person is in need, however they got to that circumstance in life, doesn’t mean that they should starve to death. They say I’ll get taken advantage of, but giving food to a homeless person doesn’t seem like such a bad thing to me. I’d like to think that at some point these people could move forward in life again. Perhaps too quixotic, but I sincerely hope I don’t become so jaded in life that my outlook changes.

cashierstruggles:

Alright, last week I had a really weird dude come to my register and ask me what my bra size was. at first, i laughed because what the fuck? who just says shit like that. and then when he repeated it again, this time shifting closer to where i was, i started freaking out. now, my managers aren’t…

You handled that very well, and quite hilariously. Good on you! Don’t take shit from creeps, you shouldn’t get in trouble for putting up with shit like that.

This is rape culture

That is fucked up

Why are people so scared of murder? Y’all should feel pride that someone risked life in jail just to kill you

Literally that is how stupid these people sound to me rn

Are you kidding me
Those tweets cannot be serious
…..what

Wow.

What the freaking hell is this shit? Has society always been this low or is it a new development?

Who wants to play a game called Spot the Asshole?

I’d reblog this on my other blog but people need to learn about this if they work in fast food and I have a lot of followers on my main blog.
DON’T FUCKING DO THIS, YOU CAN KILL SOMEONE WITH THIS. 

seriously though, i’ve heard stories of people giving “skinny” people regular soda instead of diet… newsflash: high blood sugars make you lose weight. a skinny persom that asks for diet soda could very well be diabetic… and then if you give them regular soda, you could cause some serious damage, even comas or death. i don’t care how you feel towards a customer, GIVE THEM THE DRINK THEY ASKED FOR.

There is a coffee place near my home and they happens to serve sugar-free hot chocolate being a type one diabetic this is great because it has about half the amount of carbs. This one time I ordered it the employee rolled his eyes at me. When I got my drink I thought it tasted differently but I was with friends and wasn’t paying a ton of attention. Later my blood sugar was in the high 400s and we had no idea why, everything was in order. I had to stay up all night to get my blood sugars under control.  I thought of the employee might have something to do with it. The next day I went back and the same guy was working, my mom confronted him and the manager and the guy admitted that he had given me a regular hot coco and had even put extra sugar in it. He tried to justify his actions because ” how was he supposed to know I was diabetic” and ”I thought just thought she was some chick trying to lose weight that she didn’t need to lose” He lost his job and I never went back there.  But it put be in danger and if I hadn’t caught the high when I did I could of ended up in the hospital.

Even if customers are rude, don’t try and kill them! I understand how much people suck sometimes, but the line has to be drawn somewhere!
