Happy New Year

Radio Question of the Day:

Of all those who work in retail this time of year, 13% of them will be doing this once the shopping season ends. What is it?

Y'all be careful out there. And be nice. Nice is a good thing.


Answer to the Radio Question of the Day:

*Seeking therapy for customer-related abuse. Whoa! You guys! Think it over. These people don't make enough money to be abused that hard.

Wishing you and your family a very prosperous 2007, TLP.

Yes, they're all out there, these are the people who carry their agression into the car parks and onto the roads as well I think.
I wish you and your family a very Happy and Prosperous New Year. May there be many blessings in your lives.
Cheers Margaret

Well, if they didn't insist on $14.95 for some silly gift basket with summer sausage and cheese balls, I wouldn't have to beat them!

Happy New Year, TLP! That's sad about the retail folk... but yeah, shoppers are RUDE!

Peter said...

Hi Lucy, I hope you have had a good holiday season and you and yours have a great New Year too

mmmmmmmmmmmmsummer sausage and cheese balls mmmmmmmmmmmmm... I think the worst abuse must come from self-proclaimed perfume experts who are always proclaiming how much more they know than the poor sales associates, who they say are always standing between them and the free samples. Me, I try to suck up to the sales associate for the samples, not be mean to them. Or just come up behind them and quick! Swipe the sample! But that's just who I am, as you know. Happy New Year, TLP!!!! ♥ xoxo

Oh please! WAAA people are mean to me at the return counter.

Too many people in this nation have thin skin. Know what I would do?

1. I AM sorry and stuff, but no returns without a recipt! did I say I am sorry? I lied. I am not very sorry at all. NEXT!

2. You are returning this Christmas sweater because it is ugly? Good thing nobody bought you a mirror!

3. It is store policy to work at 1/3 my normal speed and take a lot of breaks when the customer yells!

4. No. I do not care if you never shop here again. Do not let the automatic door hit you on the ass!

5. I am the manager. My name is "I do not give a crap about you".

6. Attention customers! Because THIS GUY RIGHT HERE is an asshole, EVERYONE has to stand in line an extra 30 minutes! That is right, EVERYONE has to just stand around for 30 minutes while we cater to every whim this guy has! By the way, everyone also gets a bar of soap and a large towel, you know just in case you feel like beating the crap out of someone.

I could totally revolutionize retail. People would fear the customer service counter.
