  • I entered a bathroom stall at work and saw it had a horrible unflushed mess. I flushed the toilet though it didn't clear everything and I went to a different one. After I washed my hands and was leaving a co-worker wandered into the same stall.
  • Co-worker: Ewwww!
  • Me: You should have seen that before I flushed it!
  • Co-worker: No! I don't want to know!
  • Me: ...uh, after I came in...

Sample(d) data.

I presume they’re trying to show the growth of the growth, ie. in February they gained 240 jobs which is some % up from the last month.  There there are several problems with this including a missing axis and a time period too short to rule out passing and seasonal effects.

what if we all got paper lol

This post is just darling!
The last time this happened as described on August was 2008.  Last time in any month was March 2013.
This will not happen August of 2837.  Our current calendar wasn’t even around in 1191, but if it was, this wouldn’t have happened in August of that year.  Also, while I’m not any kind of authority, I don’t think this has anything to do with Feng Shui, which is largely concerned with directional orientation.
But I’ll give them this, at least they’re correct about this month’s calendar.

There are two kinds of Kongregate games

The ones who put their one file neatly into a folder inside an arbitrarily numbered folder inside a gamez folder inside the main folder,

And the ones who say, “Oh no no, I’m in the big league here” and dump their files in the main folder.

  • Female Host: Who might you have decked out with some jewels this evening?
  • Male Guest/Host: You mean who's wearing my jewels tonight?

That’s funny at first I thought it was just a compression wave and then I looked at the individual lines, saw them changing thickness, and realized it was supposed to be 3D, and then I could see it.  It’s like the spinning dancer but for 2D/3D.

  • I was training a new cashier at the time a former cashier came by who had, if I remember correctly, quit because she didn't like the stress of interacting with customers. This exchange happened right as she was starting to pay.
  • Customer [to me, not the cashier]: This item is wrong. The sign said 9.99.
  • Me: 9.99?
  • Customer: It said items 17.99 for 8.99.
  • Me: Oh, this item is regular 19.99. That's why it's ringing up different.
  • Customer: The sign said 8.99
  • Me: That's okay. [To cashier] You can go ahead and adjust it because it's just a few dollars difference.
  • I guide her through the adjustment, which is made to 8.99.
  • Customer: That's what the sign said. 17.99 for 8.99.
  • Me: If you like I could have the housewares person make sure it's correct.
  • Customer: You know this place has really gone downhill since I worked here. I can't believe they allow you to act this way.
  • Me: I'm sorry?
  • Customer: You're pretending I'm lying. That's terrible customer service.
  • Me: I never intended to do that...
  • Customer: You're supposed to believe the customer and mark down the price. I don't know what has been happening here but it's really changed since I left!
  • At this point the cashier interjected that I changed the price, to which the customer continued insisting I was mistreating her.
  • I checked the sign at the end of the day. it read, "40% off. Original 14.99, Sale 8.99, Original 19.99, Sale 11.99."

Most ungrateful customer of the year goes to…

At the end of my shift I was asked to give a break to a cashier on the other side of the store, and I quickly went over and filled in for this coworker, who said she was supposed to take a break 40 minutes ago and was at the end of her rope because the other cashier on her side was gone.  She took back some recovery with her.  An old woman came by five minutes later and demanded to know where the clothes she left were.  I called the cashier over the intercom who came running back, and when I asked about the items she said she’d just taken them, so she left to get them back.  The customer started complaining to me, saying “There’s no excuse.”  In just a couple minutes the cashier returned with all the clothes and apologized a few times.  She stayed for a bit, explaining how she’d turned to a co-worker and asked where these clothes came from, and neither of them knew.  After she left the customer turned back to me and spent the rest of the transaction complaining about her, using the phrase “there’s no excuse” several times.  She then demanded I give her a coupon she’d forgotten, and when I said the one she asked for was expired she interjected, “How do you know!” but ultimately settled for a nearly-as-good coupon, making sure she could do a repurchase “when I find that my coupon is good.”

The exchange delayed the other cashier long enough that I had to stay 15 or 20 minutes after my shift longer than I would have.

Post reblogged from Clients From Hell with 1,736 notes

clientsfromhell:

I was doing headshots of physicians for a local hospital.

Client: Yeah, this is no good. You need to Photoshop this one. He looks too mysterious.

Me: Mysterious? 

Client: Yes. We don’t want our doctors looking mysterious. 

I still haven’t figured out what they meant by “mysterious”. I ended up removing a few crow’s feet and that seemed to suffice in removing any “mystery”.

I like this.  When I get crow’s feet, heaven willing I live long enough, I’ll say, “I’m not getting older.  I’m getting more mysterious!”

Oh no

It’s already Back To School season.

Then as soon as school starts comes Halloween Season.

Then after Halloween comes Thanksgiving.

And that’s just Christmas which brings us straight through into next year.

The year is over, basically.
