i like liking things that no one else likes

  • Mood:


the nite at work was rather eh.. not good or bad just there & thus eh.. my fellow scallywag Tom called out sick & then i ended up staying until 2am to help my manager with some much needed moving book-shelves around & such.. customers were rather annoying today, for i got a argumentative 'i am bored lawyer & it is my day off' sorta guy -and- then this random guy who started off our conversation by asking, "i don't want you to take offense, but can i ask you a question?".. i mean come on!! as soon as someone pulls a line like that outta their ass, then i am already super-defensive with my knives drawn & my teeth bared.. our conversation went as follows:

H & manager are talking about random boring book shelve placings when aforementioned customer walks up & looks eagerly in their direction

manager: "may i help you sir?"

blarg customer: "i'd like to talk to her" points at H

H: "how can i help you sir?"

blarg customer: "i don't want you to take offense, but can i ask you a question?"

H: "okay? i won't take offense depending on what kind of question you ask me!"

manager: looks on with interest at the scene that is unfolding before him

blarg customer: "i have talked to you many times before & you seem to be a reasonably intelligent person, also rather attractive & i have seen that you have had many different piercings through your eyebrow & tongue, so why do you do that to yourself?!" points at H's vertical labret piercing

H: *chuckles to hirself & takes a closer look at the customer, comes to the decision that ze has never seen him before in hir life* "well sir i must tell you that i have never had a eyebrow or tongue piercing, because i don't find either attractive & as for why i do this to myself, well i do it because i enjoy it!!"

blarg customer: stares back expecting more of an argument and/or detailed explantation of maybe a spiritual, satanitc or BDSM-related meaning to the terrible piece of metal through H's lip

H: stares back with a sly grin across hir mutilated & vertically pierced lips

blarg customer: loses staring contest & walks away

H: "have a nice night sir!!"

manager: "what the hell was that all about?!"

H: "i have NO idea & welcome to my life"

H & manager go back to talking about random boring shelf placements

~*EL FIN*~

*teehee* entertaining eh?

oh. my. god.

welcome to like every day of my life at borders.

well at least once a week anyway.

and i get the same assumptions with people thinking i have every possible thing pierced when i have one nostril and my labret.

people suck.
i had one lady go up to my manager last christmas and say "do you have to hire people like THAT!?" and my manager said "yes...yes we do" and walked off.

"mommy, what's in her lip?" "well, it's like how i have an ear ring in my ear, only she has one in her lip"

"mommy, i want purple hair" "not if i have anything to do about it!"

"so did that hurt?"

"oh my god, what is that in your ear!"

"how big are those holes in your ears?"

"did that hurt?"

"so...what ELSE do you have pierced?" -dirty old homeless guy!!! AHHHHHHH!!!
*teehee* yeah i have gotten all of those comments many times before.. once a customer was gutsy enough to ask to speak to a manager & when the manager came up to talk to them, they told her that they had a problem with me & when the manager asked them was i rude, or did i not find what they wanted, etc & they replied 'no'.. well the manager asked what the problem was then & they replied that they didn't think that they should hire people such as me & the manager replied with, 'what creative-minded intelligent people who have their own opinions on what they should look like'.. the customer huffed & walked off.. geez i miss that manager, she was the best!! *sighs*
