    Always remember to pick your feet up when you’re running.

    That is all.

    Ugggghhhhh, I think this year has made me realize the really lousy side of retail outside scheduling conflicts.

    Shooting occurred in my work area so we had to close and made sure customers leave in safety.

    People were honestly irritated at us and even asked if they could at least finish shopping in the store...That was only the beginning of the idiotic things. From people literally waiting at our locked doors expecting us to open to phone calls asking if we're open so they do something.

    People. There. Is. An. Armed. Man on the loose not too far from us. Do you even care about your own safety?

    While we were thankfully told it was safe (as safe as it can be), management up top demand we finish the shift anyway.

    ...We closed ten minutes early cause no. We were done for the day. No more idiots at the last minute BS.

    Jeez....that is some craziness, man. I'm glad you got through it, but...I imagine it won't feel particularly good going in to work again.

    Thankfully I'll live but it's just been a stressful weekend. Saturday I got the rambling homeless man who was slowly getting verbally hostile (thankfully escorted out of the whole area by mall security that took their sweet time getting there) and now this.

    I thought the fur protesters and that undercover smuggling drug bust at the parking lot were going to be the most outrageous thing to happen at work so far.

    Yeah, management got weary over this since again...This stuff never happened in the store until recently.

    The problem does seem to be getting worse and worse.

    Sounds like a weird location to work in. Are there any safer areas you could work at?

    It's like 2020 and now 2021 decided to troll around my workplace now and not in the amusing way. 5 years working and suddenly this kind of crap happens.

    I work at a clothing retail store of all things. Normally we just get thieves and an occasional dumbass but recent events decided to up the freaking bar by miles apparently.

    I know the feeling. A weirdo once got into an argument with a customer at my own place and threatened to come back with guns. Thankfully we called the police and they handled the situation, we haven't seen him since and he's been banned from the premises, but I was shaken up over that for days.

    Glad you're still with us Iron. You're awesome.

    Yeah. Thankfully after tomorrow I'll just get two days off straight. Away from work would let me relax a tad.
