I've never skirted around the fact that I don't like this time of the year. I've been working food service/retail for some time now and I have really grown to dislike the holidays. I deal with it in my own way. I try not to burden others with my hatred for the holidays. (Maybe that will be my new philosophy: Hatred for the Holidays) Nonetheless, it can be trying BUT it only lasts for a month of so; after which, I am fine.
What I don't understand is why people get so ugly around this time of year. Ugly as in:Yes, ma'am. It's ridiculous how many people are shopping for food on the weekend before Thanksgiving. I swear, the nerve of them. What?!?!?! Wait in line?!?!?!!? On the Monday night before Thanksgiving?!?!?!! Atrocious! Goodness, sir. Why on earth would anyone be in a grocery store on the Tuesday before Turkey day. Oh, the humanity. Oh, you've never ever been in a grocery store before and you decided to cook dinner for your 15 family members visiting you. And you have a list of things that you have no idea where to get. Well, let's start with this part... all the veggies are in produce. Oh, Produce is where they put all the vegetables. That area you walked through to get to me. I know, silly us.
I am a firm believer in the fact that Customer Service no longer exists. But here is my question: did people stop caring about the customer or have customers become so difficult that we stopped trying to please their impossibly ridiculous demands? Think about it while I take my meds so I don't kill anyone in the next 7 days. Later.
