Is there a full moon tonight?

Today was bring a crazy to the Bookstore day. I swear everyone that came through my line was insane or cranky or both. Lets take for example the lady with the blue sweater on. She came up nice as could be and was very normal while I started ringing her out. I made the idle chit chat, blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda and she just kind of stood there looking at me. No problem I’m a bit of a chatter box. So when we get to the end I HAVE to ask if each customer has a Rewards Card. I have to. Yes, I hate it, no, I don’t care if you do or not, just answer my question so I can get on to the next step.

So I asked, “Now do you have a Rewards Card?” Ms. Happy Blue Sweater replied (in a snotty tone), “NO and I DO NOT want one either.” Ok, fine, Snot Ass, WHATEVER, was what I was thinking. Well I hit total and she had over $60. Now, that is a lot of money to just throw away by not getting a rewards card not to mention they FORCE me to ask this stuff. Very nicely, I said, “Oh wow, you have a total of $60….” Before I could finish she looked me dead in the eye and said, “SO??”

Yeah yeah, sew buttons on underwear bitch (is what I thought). I never blinked. I finished the transaction with a smile and then it came for the receipt and her coupon. I handed her both and said, “Here is your receipt and there is a coupon but if you decided to use it then you will need to register for a Rewards Card.” She snatched it out of my hand and just stared at me. I never stopped smiling and I never looked away and I said, “You have a nice day.” Happy Blue Sweater lady screwed up her face like she had smelled poop, stuck out her tongue and rolled her eyes like she was in mid fit then stormed off.
I was a bit stunned.

OK, Happy Blue Sweater Lady, let me clue you in on some things. First off you didn’t piss me off by doing this, you made me laugh. Not only did you make me laugh but you gave me something talk about for the rest of the day. As a matter of fact for the next three hours that face was made over and over and over again. You did not hurt my feelings or make me feel bad that I had asked you this because, seriously I don’t really care if you get a card or not. You did not make a point other than to bring to light that you are rude and a tad bit insane. And lets not forget this, oh Happy Blue Sweater Lady, your life lesson for the day, you just never know who blogs!

Thanks so much, Happy Blue Sweater lady for giving me my topic for the day! (making that crazy tongue stinking out face right back at you)
