I Must Be Invisible Today…
I don’t know what it is today. I woke up on time and showered but all day long I slept-walked my way through. I felt as if I were inside a bubble and couldn’t wake up. Everything else just sort of added to the day.
I had to go out about mid-morning to get some carbon paper. My store that has been having so many problems with the manager and the associates is just getting out of hand. I used to be able to order duplicate copy guest checks from our company but they are no longer available so I decided I would make my own. I went to the Wal-Mart and they had no carbon paper. No big deal, I figured they must just be out. On my way out of the parking lot I was almost hit no less than three times. I’m not one to slow down if I have the right of way but these people just weren’t stopping. I had to slam on the brakes twice to avoid an accident.
I went down the street to the Ingles and looked through their school supplies. No carbon paper. I repeated the search at the local CVS pharmacy and they didn’t have any so I decided to ask. I stood at the counter for ten minutes while this MANAGER jacked her damn jaws on the phone. She finally hung up as I was on my way out the door and said “I’m off now”. Go fuck yourself. I have no time for a business that treats it’s customers that way.
I ended up across the street at the Rite-Aid and they had none either. I don’t know what’s up. Did they all have this gigantic run on carbon paper, or maybe the carbon paper thief is back in action again trying to clone himself? Anybody else tried to buy carbon paper recently? There is no office supply place in town that I know of so I called one of the other district managers that has one across the street from one of her stores and asked her to pick up a pack for me. We have the Taste of Carrollton to work tomorrow evening so I will pick it up then.
I don’t know what it is but I just felt invisible to these people today and by the time I was driving home I was in the mood to run people off the road that got in my way.
