Well, even though it's Sunday, I suspect today's not going to be a day of rest for me... I work... at the store. I had to deal with a really bad MAGA head yesterday. A short, middle-aged woman without a mask. "I need blinds cut," she huffed, and walked over to our roller blind section. "Three room darkening." I pulled out three light filtering and she barked "those are the wrong ones! I said room darkening." Another customer wearing a mask, who also needed a blind cut, joined us. After cutting them, she said a fourth was needed, 37.5 inches long. I informed her I'd have to cut a larger, more expensive blind. "Well cut it!" I looked through the larger blinds and found no room darkening. I told her. "There's a million blinds there," she yelled. "You didn't look! Move! I'll look myself." And she gave me one of those 'you are so damn stupid glares.' Believe me, wearing a mask does not mean you can't glare back. I did, as I politely said. "Well, let me check," and I pulled out every blind in the bin, over twenty. I stacked them nicely in the next bay since I didn't want to lay them on the floor. No room darkening. I told her. "You didn't look through all of them!" she yelled, pointing to the cream colored and fabric blinds. "I've never been treated so rudely! I don't want your blinds! I'm going to Lowe's!" and she stormed off, leaving me with the blinds I'd already cut. The customer who was waiting patiently, nodded her head and said "just count to 10." I believe the real problem was that I was wearing a mask.
When you look at someone who refuses to wear a mask, you are looking at the face of the Idiot Jerk's base. And they are angry. The core of his base has always been angry. Through him, they vent their anger... and he's losing. That makes them angrier. His not wearing a mask legitimized their beliefs in him. The pandemic is a hoax, they believe... and then yesterday he wore a mask in public. That will make them angrier. They will think he caved... and he did, out of desperation. While I can stand there and count to 10, they cannot. They can't even get to 5 before their anger boils over. They're furious because their savior is turning out to be a loser... just like them.
Here's a little bright spot. Another one of my dahlias.
And remember, all we have to do is count to 10, and wonder if they'll even make it to 5.
the MAGAts have to use all their fingers and toes just to count to 5. hope that cunt didn't find anything at lowe's either.ReplyDelete
she didn't, their customers usually come to our store.Delete
I love your dahlias! I love all of your flowers.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I love to grow them!Delete
That other customer was very astute in which she said. And again, I COULD NOT DO YOUR JOB!ReplyDelete
It actually doesn't bother me that much. I have a talent my mom used always complain about: in one ear and out the other.Delete
Another beauty! Keep them coming! Thanks, Dave.ReplyDelete
Thanks! Rain tomorrow might dampen my pics.Delete
Wow. I couldn't do your job either. It was nice of that lady to say count to 10. There are still some considerate people left in the world. Maybe you are right...you were wearing a mask and that pissed her off.ReplyDelete
I really believe that. Most of the people we see wear masks, those who don't do seem to have a bit of a chip on their shoulder.Delete
I think everyone has a short fuse right now, good to see you can keep your temper in check.ReplyDelete
