Response to What The Hell Is That Thing Called?:
8/10, but to be honest I feel like at least a couple of these are less “real name of the thing” and more “regional name of the thing”. Like the party horns.
Sorry, if your opinion is that letting people who love each other get married is EQUIVALENT TO A FUCKING TERRORIST ATTACK, then yes, you do deserve to get bashed for it…
Ugh, yes. I swear if I swept the floor one more time it was going to start wearing a groove in it. This is what every manager I’ve ever had insisted on having me do, because it was “looking busy but not too busy”. If I could’ve cleaned something that needed it, then sure. But I wasn’t allowed to walk anywhere out of arm’s reach of my register. There’s only so much you can clean.
A good bit of these won’t work if you’re stuck behind a checkout lane. You have to look “busy but not too busy”. If you look “too busy”, a customer won’t feel that they can ask for help. If you DON’T look busy, a customer will assume the company is full of lazy people who don’t do anything.
Also even if you’re working the floor, the “chatting up a customer” thing doesn’t always work, especially if you have a manager on a power trip. I got written up once because I spent like an hour with a customer, because she was telling me about her cats and I was helping her decide what to get for her new puppy, because she hadn’t had a dog before. The manager saw “she’s playing with a dog instead of working”, wrote me up, and told me that counted as my lunch break so I wasn’t going to get one. (It didn’t seem to matter that the woman bought over $400 worth of crap for this puppy by the time I finished helping her.)
Honestly the panicking gay guy was pretty much on point so…go him. I loved the creativity in some of these responses (chipotle, kicking in the shin leading to a date, lol)
I got Joey.
Then again, these options were so incredibly obvious that I specifically avoided anything that would give me Ross. Thank god.
