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.

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.

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.
