I’d like to order something cool…”
– Julie London
Bad things come in threes, minions. As if problems and delays in moving to only the only city I have ever loved wasn’t crippling enough (and can you tell that I’m trying hard to maintain this facade of adult-like maturity when I really want to throw a monster temper tantrum?), a very rude patron decided to complain that I was the one being rude to him! In spite of a wide smile and attempts to help him as quickly and efficiently as possible. And then our air conditioning went out and we woke up to a 90 degree flat yesterday morning, an event which was unfortunately repeated this morning as our landlords haven’t been able to fix it yet.
False accusations + heat + crushing disappointments = severe snark. Although I fully admit Sav is having a much worse time.
Perk me up, kittens. What’s going on in your corners of the world?

You already know! Africa interview coming up…fingers crossed.
At least you have a/c to begin with. 😉 Sorry things have been stressful and frustrating, though!
Poor you! Heat literally leaves people feeling murderous…
The only useful thing I learned in retail about nasty customer is that, much of the time, it doesn’t matter what you say or how kindly you behave — it’s NOT about you. I use the phrase in my book, pre-pissed — they’re already out for trouble and you, missy, just blundered into range.
Awaiting a phone call for a possible FT job, trying to stay literally and physically cool. Not much here.
Pre-pissed. That’s it exactly!
Fingers crossed for the job!
BOO! Terrible! Let’s get together soon and angst over something chilled and delicious.
Oh, that sucks. The worst thing going on right now is my face… it’s puffy eyes and clogged up breathing holes and all that 😦
Switched shifts at work recently. Waking up at 5am was never a favorite past time of mine, but my disdain for early morning hours is only intensified now pregnant.
