My face and head are starting to feel better, but not my nose or my hand which is bruised. I also have found my suspicions on what has been making me kind of ill latelt but I won't know for sure until they decide to send me my scan date.

I have literally like, a thousand stories of ****ty customers and you know what? I think of those times and every other time that someone has made a complaint about me or another person I work with because they gave 'bad' service or were a little rude to someone unintentionally and got fired or disciplined for it. That ONE service person might have been rude to you. Do you know how many rude customers that service person encounters every single day, but we can't utter a single word of complaint? It drives me nuts. And in the retail industry, they literally don't give a **** about you. Most companies treat you as a disposable ass-wipe and are not interested in their employees. You're just a cheap cog in a huge machine. Retail workers deserve an Oscar for their performance on being polite and chirpy after ten people have been unbelievably rude in a row. It's just a shame more people can't have a little compassion or empathy for the people who are literally doing them a service because, as much as the company could throw me away, I could throw them away and get another exactly the same job somewhere else. But I'm here doing you a favour by letting you shop until five minutes after store closing. Yes, I might be pissed you're taking **** off the shelves and making me stay late. I mean it's not like I have a home to go to! Customers are there for leisure and need, customer service employees are there because they don't have a choice.
It was nice when I was the supervisor, and I would tell customers to piss off. I worked at a military pharmacy and so I tried to run a tight shift. You know, keep in disciplined and stuff. And that went for our hours of operation as well. It was clearly stated: we close at 8:00pm. Not 8:01. Not 8:05. 8:00. Because we also opened at 7:00am. Not 7:01. Patients and customers were ready to make sure we knew we were late opening, so I was equally sure to remind them when we closed. If I had a person come up and get huffy with me because we were closing and we wouldn't serve them at 8:15, I would tell them off. If they were REALLY nice, and apologetic and understanding of how they were in the wrong for coming late and making us stay, then I would usually help them. But no one came to my pharmacy on my shift and demanded anything from me because I would quite happily tell someone to bugger off, and their rank be damned.

Because you're right. No one cares about the worker bee. So I took care of my guys and gals. If someone needed to stay late, it was me. If someone had to deal with an irate customer, it was me. It's part of being the supervisor, having rank, but it was also because I was a lot older than most of them.

Anyways, I think everyone should have at least one service job in their life so they know what it's like.

I'm like that a little bit. I mean I don't mind helping someone when we're closing when they know exactly what they want and literally just want to find the item and pay for it but if somebody thinks they're browsing at 5:59pm I tell them bluntly were closing. I used to pretty much supervise at one of my previous jobs (I had management privileges in deed and not title so I could do exchanges and refunds etc and act supervisor if the actual supervisor wasn't in) and quite quickly I became sharp with customers. Like no nonsense attitude, this is how it is. If you don't like it tough titties basically. I eventually was the one called on to deal with all the irate and abusive customers and tbh I liked it because I got to actually retaliate. But in my job they don't really let you get away with that, but Ive given up pretending to be nice to people who don't deserve it. I stay civil but I cba with fake chirpiness
