RETAIL ON STRIKE

The awful woman screams at me.
In the queue behind her there’s some impatiently foot tapping customers who huff, tut and clear their throats with a fake cough.

Perhaps in doing this it would encourage the other sale assistants to hurry up with the customers they’re already dealing with.

The yelling and the finger pointing carries on from the awful screaming woman. I cant fathom what shes trying to convey. Its as if shes bored. Maybe her husband doesn’t stimulate her anymore in and out of the bedroom. This is how she gets off now.

I often think wouldn’t it be great if for once as the customer was moaning I went off script and said…

“Go fuck yourself, cuntface”.

To see their face in complete shock. Or how about,
Slam their complaining face over and over again into the counter.
And when I have finished beating their skull on the hard surface. Say,

“I don’t get paid enough for your shit”

It would be great if the whole retail sector went on strike.

To witness the whole country have a massive shit fit.
Not gonna lie I think it would be well worth seeing. I’d even pay for a front row seat.
A load of angry consumers unable to get their fix. Like penniless drug addicts.

It would be like black Friday meets zombie apocalypse.
The doors would be closed, yet they would persist on getting inside in their droves. Like rage fueled apes.

I always feel for the sales assistant. Witnessing them getting verbally assaulted.
The public can be a vicious ill mannered piece of freshly laid dog turd
.

The only defense for the sales assistant who all day gets bombarded is to put on a polite smiley face.

Their cheeks must hurt from smiling all day as the soul destroys minute by minute as they say “Thank you, have a nice day.”

When really all they want to do when they are getting used as a verbal dart board is grab the tantrum objectionable shit stain and suffocate them with a 5p carrier bag.

Humans like to consume.
I’m guessing a strike of any kind would never happen.
Even people who work in retail, consume.
Its hard not to these days.
When everyday is Christmas with Amazon.

Having dealt with the screaming woman. She is on her way to tell her friends how she kicked and shouted until she got her own way against someone whose getting paid minimum wage.

He asked her

They both gazed out the spare bedroom window.
The sunlight shone enhancing her goddess-like appearance and at that moment he knew.
His heart could stop and he would die in complete awe of her.
Nothing would matter.
He adored her, more than any words could ever describe.
As she looked at him, he looked deep into her eyes only to say with full commitment.

Will you marry me?

Non parents are annoying

Non Parents AKA your parents, siblings or close friends.

Most of the time they seem to get more attention from your child than you will.

When Tilly and my good lady got to know one another and began interacting. Not gonna lie, I was proper pissed not to mention jealous.

Once I took a step back and observed both of the loves of my life interacting, playing, painting or whatever games they conjured up. Even though im left on the side line with a sulk on. It melted this shabby heart of mine.

There’s a reason why Tilly see’s my good lady as a better alternative when we’re all present. Its because a light bulb moment has occurred in Tilly’s 5 year old brain. She sees my good lady not as second mother, but as an ally. When the two of them are together, Tilly feels safer in numbers, and becomes more mischievous – not in a little shite kinda way although she now sees this as an opportunity to gang up on ole Daddy-o, because in her mind i’m now outnumbered.

Your child isn’t after replacing you,

or maybe they’re…

Whether it be Aunties, Uncles, Grandparents, friends of the family, etc. Non parents are a vital part in a child’s life. Not only for the interaction. But also they can give Mum/Dad a chance to break off for five minutes to regain focus, take a deep breath, grab a quick caffeine fix, do some chores or even sneak off for a hard drag on a nicotine stick – remember go down the bottom of the garden at all times think of the kiddies lungs.

When your child is interacting with the individuals who are present at that time. They are not only after some sort of stimulus and to make new allies, but to learn and play without the need for discipline from their MA and PA.

Remember non parents aren’t the ones for setting the bar for rule and regulations and how to act accordingly.

That’s not their role. When you’re a parent that’s your responsibility.

Non parents are your child’s new companion, their new plaything, the new must have. And with knowing and understanding this. I no longer feel the need to feel jealous or feel as if i’m being pushed out of the picture, I always know I can get involved and can play too. But while they are busy I’m gonna pour myself another coffee.

Why you should free yourself from your current job

 

Don’t quit, not straight away, don’t be a shitstick, not advocating that. Especially if you’ve a family to provide for, bills to pay, etc. If you’re a free spirit, then you can get your coat. But before you dash for the door, showing your boss the middle finger, and saying
“Fuck you, you tight arsed shit-cunt, I QUIT!”
Here’s some things you might want to consider.

Start Observing

Time; you should observe how much the job you’re doing is sapping up most of your energy and time, preventing you from doing the things in life you want or should be doing.

Happiness; don’t stay if the job you’re in, is emotionally dragging you down.

MONEY; always ask for more money don’t stay if the money is shit – know your worth. Ask for a rise. Remember, you have bills to pay, children and yourself to feed.

One way in which you could to ask, no screw that, demand – not petulantly, but seek for that rise, and also more perks. Get what you want to say to your employer, prepared and ready to go, and say it with some balls. Especially if you’ve been there for a while on the same wage. If they come back with some nonsensical excuse, such as there’s no money in the company, or times are hard, you say;
“No, shit!”

Don’t let them fleece you of your capital for their gain.

Still having doubts about leaving, maybe because;
“But… I have friends there…
Oh we have a laugh, proper great banter…
My boss is a nice person, i’d feel like I’m letting people down”.
Fuck em!
Look after number one – think of your own interests. Better yourself. Know your worth. You are more than just a number. Or of course, stay there trapped, stagnant and continuing to gather dust, living out the rest of your days, wasting away like part of the furniture. Its your choice.

Now, before you forget, in no typical order here’s the Three vital components;

TIME = You not only have more minutes but you will have more energy to do the shit you care about.

HAPPINESS = Happiness

MONEY = Show me the money

If these three ingredients aren’t tell signs or giving you the slightest of an incline that its time to royally fuck off or change your current situation. Then the only person getting exploited is you, and you’re doing it to yourself.

How to keep the connection with your child – before the world and it’s despicable fuckers get their cunthooks on them.

 

Keep the connection with your child – before the world and it’s despicable fuckers get their cunthooks on them.

Start whilst they’re young. Call it their time. For example, Tilly’s time. Or as Dr Laura Markam https://www.ahaparenting.com/ puts it “Special time”

Let your child direct play for 10-20mins

Give your lil one nothing but your undivided attention

Set a timer

No phones – No TV – Just you and your lil one.

Why do this?

It’s great to improve your relationship with your child, plus it will help them dissolve any feelings of unease.

It’s about connection. You have to be their role model – set the bar. Don’t let the media, their peers or any other outsider, tell or show them the way.
After all, its your duty, so be their guide.

HANDLE YOUR SHIT

 

Your first responsibility as a parent is becoming aware of your own inner shit – you can achieve this by mindfulness.

Becoming more mindful will not only help you become aware of what you’re feeling, but you won’t act on these negative feelings that are constantly shoving you closer to the fucking edge.

Children have this ability to show us unresolved issues from our childhood. This will not only make you more patient, empathetic, compassionate not to mention selfless. But, it’ll push you to be the best parent you should be.

A child’s needs must come before their parents.

TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR SHIT NOW!
For you, your family and child’s sake.
What happened in the past has been and gone, the emotional scars may still be there, however as long as you remain mindful, aware and stay in the moment with your child your unresolved baggage will be of no concern.
Allowing you to put all of your effort into becoming the best guide/coach/parent that your child truly deserves.
