It’s just not my day today.
I woke up with sore muscles in the legs and thighs… thanks to running down 16 flights of stairs while carrying Job in my right arm and an umbrella stroller in the other arm! How’s that! Aside from the sore legs and thighs, my back is aching terribly and I have no idea why. And the greatest factor that made today simply just not my day was the customer (an Asian one, Chinese specifically) who was let’s say a little bit “rude.”
I felt like I was on fire for no reason, I was vented out with emotions that I know I should not be getting. I couldn’t care less of whatever was in her car (that was she said, that there was something in her car, because she was in a hurry), all I know is that I am following rules and store policies. And because I am in the front-end, I get to absorb the good, the bad and the ugly of retail, sales and customer service.
I went home with a heavy heart, I was reprimanded (again for no reason), reminded of what not to do, and for about 15 minutes, I felt like I want quits. But when I saw my school boy, I thought of otherwise. I said to myself, it’s part of being in the front-end, but then, customers are not always (all the time) right. I am a customer myself, we all are, let’s just be responsible and not lash out at the people serving us, we are all equal, we are all customers.
Oh well, today is just one of those days…
