Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt3)

Tomorrow is my last day of work with normal hours, starting on Monday our extended holiday hours start. My store is not in a shopping area where having extended hours makes sense, so basically this is a huge waste of time.

Definitely not looking forward to it, and it will probably mess my sleep up even more

Waiting for the cab to pick me up in about 15 minutes. Have to leave for the airport early so will hang around there for 3 hours before the plane leaves.

Yes. another 20 minutes, I estimate. Since my mom needs wheelchair to help her getting on the plane, I will be on board early.

Troicki gets a lot of unfair criticism, but I can't say I'm a fan. It's good to see at least someone sticking up for him, though. I like this Troicki avatar, though. It's nice.

It must suck during the holiday season working in retail. For just about every other profession, it's a nice time of year.

Oh, awesome. Have fun with it, and don't break it!

No worries. As I said to star, everyone chooses who they want to choose. There should be no apologies. Besides, I made it through anyway.

Well when I started following Viktor, it was Cincinnati 2006, and I expected nothing from him. He and Nole were hanging out together all over the grounds and Viktor did a few things that made me laugh at some of Nole's matches I wanted someone I could follow in challengers and I figured he could someday be ranked around 150 or so So everything he achieved is a shocking but pleasant surprise to me. I go into every match of his expecting very little, and I usually get it

I'm pretty sure at the US Open this year he left his smashed racket intending for me to get it because he impaled it on the gate right in front of where I was sitting, but then some teenage boy got it instead. That would have been my prized position

There are pros and cons. Pros: when people are courteous and appreciate that you are there to HELP them. If I actually work with a customer and help them put together outfits that their daughters will like... that's fun I especially enjoy helping customers who are buying gifts for an angel tree/mitten tree type thing. I don't know if people do that outside of the US It's like, at a church or somewhere there is a tree, and hanging off of it are things that people in need would like for the holidays, people pick things off the tree that they'll buy and then put the gifts under the tree by a certain date. It's pretty common around here. There's no set amount you have to spend on what that person has requested, it's really up to you, knowing that it might be all they get for the holidays. So, a woman yesterday came in with one of those for a 7 year old girl who wanted clothes or a jacket, and it had her clothing sizes on it. Most people would just buy one complete outfit and be done, but I asked the lady I was helping how much she wanted to spend and she said $200 We got this little girl 3 complete outfits, a winter coat, a purse and two arts and crafts type kits It's was fun because she doesn't know this girl so she was completely open to my suggestions

Cons: When people get mad that we don't have the EXACT thing they want or complain that we're sold out of sizes. We always try to show other things or call other stores, so when people get upset at US when it's not our fault... that's the really frustrating part. So we go in the back room, and vent to another employee about how rude people are and then have to go back out there. I just really hate rude people in the holidays, because then they also expect favors. I've had customers say that since they don't feel like driving to another store for their item that they MUST HAVE that I personally should drive there on my own time and pick it up for them to which I say (politiely): HELL NO. It's as little as acknowledging the store associate when they greet you when you walk in. Is it normal behavior to remain silent when a fellow human says to you, "Hi! How are you!" Since 95% of people respond with "Good thanks, and you" I don't think it is. Some people don't even make eye contact with you. I have said to people, "Hi! Welcome to _____ (store name)! Just so you know the entire store is 40% off!" and gotten no response whatsoever. Normal people at least say "Okay thanks!" and then I leave them alone... but the rude people just ignore you, act like you're invisible, and then expect you to break policies and do favors for them. Pleeeeeeeeease. You get what you give

It's okay, we need to teach you makeup first

Just saw Nole on the news they were showing the thing with Prince William yesterday and they showed him talking to McEnroe and I was like "WAIT WAIT HE IS TO THE SIDE OF MCENROE and then I saw him for a bit looking so good
