Who Needs A Soap With This Kind Of Drama

, , , , , , , | Related | February 4, 2018

(While attending post-secondary school, I share an apartment with two of my cousins, one of whom attends a different school. My program is only two years, while hers is four, so immediately after I complete my program, I have to travel away for a job. As I’m not totally moving, I keep paying my share of the rent, so I can have a room to come home to when I have days off from the job. I am at the apartment for perhaps ten days over a three-month period, May to July. My aunt, my cousins’ mom, has come to visit for a few days, in July. The apartment is a complete and utter disaster; there is a horrific fruit fly infestation and mold on dishes waiting by the sink. It’s disgusting. I am in town, as well.)

Aunt: “[Cousins #1 & #2]! This is a complete pigsty! How did it get like this? Have you guys not been doing your chores at all?”

Cousin #1: “Well, I’ve been too busy with school. I was so behind on so many assignments! My professor gave me a summer extension.”

Cousin #2: “It wasn’t my turn to do the dishes.”

Aunt: “Well, whose turn was it?”

Cousin #2: “It was [My Name]’s!”

Aunt: “But hasn’t [My Name] been away for work since May?”

Cousin #2: “Well, yes, but—”

Aunt: “So, you haven’t done any dishes since she left?”

Cousin #2: “But it was her turn!”

Aunt: “Were the dishes done before she left?”

Cousin #1: “Yes, because it was my turn before her.”

Aunt: “So, what you’re saying is that you used dishes, cooked, and so on, and left the dirty dishes for [My Name] to clean up, even though she wasn’t actually living here, and kept piling them up, waiting for her to come do them, because it was her turn?”

Cousins: “Yes!”

Aunt: “SOAP. GLOVES. NOW.”

(It was a huge relief to have them put in their place. They are wonderful girls, but it was absolutely ridiculous that they somehow expected me to be responsible for cleaning up after them when I wasn’t even living in the apartment. One cousin had to do all dishes, while I helped the other scrub out the cupboard to get rid of the fruit flies. Tip: apple cider vinegar will draw them. I now have a major sensitivity to fruit flies, and deep-clean my own house anytime even one shows up.)

Brush That Request Aside

, , , | Friendly | February 4, 2018

(I have a medium-sized makeup collection which naturally includes makeup brushes. I saved up for two years to be able to collect every brush I need to apply my makeup, like specific eye brushes and things like that. All of my brushes are pretty expensive — none of them cost below 18 dollars — hence the time it took to create my collection. Also, being a high school student in my last year, I’ve mostly been saving up from my job and allowance. I sort of justified spending a lot on them because you should only have to buy them once and not again and again. My friend, however, uses cheaper brushes from dollar stores or online. One day, she asks me this:)

Friend: “You know, for [cosmetology class], I’m kind of embarrassed bringing in my old brushes.”

(In our cosmetology class, there are many times where we learn to apply our own makeup with different techniques, and sometimes we do facials, so afterwards we have to put on our makeup again. I’ve already done the class, but my friend just went in.)

Me: *joking* “Just hide and do it in the corner then.”

Friend: “Yeah, but I was wondering if you, like… wanted to switch our brushes for a week?”

Me: *giving her a non-believing look* “Um, really?”

Friend: “I was thinking of it for a long time. It would be fun!”

Me: “No. First of all, you know how long it took me to collect all of my brushes. Second of all, I would have to wash them before I lent them to you, and after again!”

Friend: *shocked* “I can’t believe that you would say no! I would’ve lent mine to you.”

Me: “Well, yours are more… cheap. I’m not lending mine; maybe you should have saved up for yours, too.”

Friend: “I can’t believe you. I would’ve lent mine to you for however long you wanted!”

(She then stormed off. I know that she likes my brushes, but I actually spent a lot on them; I’m not just going to hand them over for a “week.”)

Unfiltered Story #104918

| Unfiltered | February 4, 2018

So I worked last summer at a popular amusement park. At this park there were many different sections (food, merchandise, games, entertainment etc.) and sometimes guest get confused if there is a sale in one department but not others.

[Guest brings two cotton candy bags to the cash. Note: sale going on in FOOD department for two for one cotton candy. I feel deep dread bc I already know how this conversation is going to go] two cotton candies please

[Me]: okay that’ll be $[xx]

Customer: NO! It’s two for one

Me: no that’s only in food sir. But (pulls out map) I can show you the closest place to get that deal

Customer: I got this deal here last year

Me: well I wasn’t here last year but this year it is only at food locations

Customer: let me speak to your leader

I get my team lead whose already rolling her eyes as she walks up to the cash.

She tells him EXACTLY what I said so he wants to speak to our manager. Our manager isn’t in the store so my lead calls her. She refused to come down to our store for such a stupid complaint

The customer started yelling and took down all of our names and numbers and went to guest service

He never came back and now I have a good story to tell at dinner.

I think he saw two young women (both of us were under 18 at the time) and thought he could intimate us

So this story is a nice one about a really pleasant customer

Customer walks in and says her mom bought her something yesterday and she wants to return it. She has the original packaging, bag, and receipt. I felt so blessed because she was going to be an easy sale
Then when I open the box I see its earrings. Earrings are final same due to hygenic reasons even though i can see she didn’t wear them (the plastic cover was still on)

Me: sorry it’s earrings I can’t return them because its unhygienic

Her: oh okay. Is that in the receipt?

Usually we circle where our return policy is but her receipt didn’t have it circled.

Me: oh it’s on the bottom. Usually we circle it.

girl: (reads the receipt) oh ya you can’t return earrings. Thanks anyways

Me: oh it’s my pleasure

This is how you treat people!

Adorableness Is Nothing To Be Sneezed At

, , , | Friendly | February 2, 2018

Me: *sneezes*

Friend: “Oh, my gosh.”

Me: “What?”

Friend: “Your sneezes are adorable.”

Me: “No, they’re not; they’re sneezes. How can sneezing be adorable?” *sneezes again*

Friend: “Well, they kind of sound like—” *makes a cute sneeze noise*

Me: “That is adorable!”
