apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad f**k” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
My hero shines on. Also, I’m gonna totally download The Boss. :D
Oh god it got better!!!

australian service desk veteran in a store where prices are “ok”
my least favourite kind of return customer, worse than people with 5 receipts for 5 items or people who want me to refund and re-do their entire transaction because someone forgot their own rewards cards, are people who think they can return just about anything because they have also worked in retail.
fucking congratulations! why are you trying to fuck me like this when you know how stupid and annoying you are? i had a lady try to return a jacket which was easily three months old with no receipt because it had fluff balls on it and some of the stitching under the arms was coming undone, fucking normal wear and tear. it was not in a resale-able condition, and when i told her ‘no’ she whipped out the above line and i knew it was going to hell.
i offered her a store credit at the price it was currently scanning at (some clearance ass price like two dollars since it was OLD STOCK), which she didn’t want since she paid around $20 for it. luckily i had a cool manager on that day who gave her a copy of our returns policy and basically told her to jam it, but to this day i have a highlighted copy of the returns policy under the desk and i’m ready to duel with thorough knowledge of the ACCC guidelines at any point in time.
having worked in retail doesn’t give you a special pass to fuck everyone who still does! i can’t magically give you the price you apparently paid for it unless you have PROOF OF PURCHASE, which you definitely know as an ex-manager! don’t try me, you are NOT getting a cent more out of me than you deserve.
you kids these days with your rapidly growing concern for the state of the world and your knowledge of important issues at increasingly younger ages despite having been told your opinions don’t matter by the adults who put you in these situations
This time last year I was unemployed, broke, and suicidal.
Today, I just got the keys to my first house.
Give it time.
