Holiday Who-be-whattie?

Can a girlfriend get her holiday complaint on for a hot second?

It drives me up the wall when I go somewhere and the people who work the stores/banks/restaurants etc. are cranky!

I know that this is not an uncommon phenomenon for this time of year.

And I realize that people can be a pain.

But ya know what?

You chose to work that job.

I can say all of this because I used to work in PUBLIC SERVICE where people are the worst kind of hateful on a regular basis.

It is the norm rather than the exception.

At some point, you have to recognize that because of whatever strife that person is currently facing is why they're not their jolly self.

I realize that it isn't right for those Scrooges to treat you the way that they do, but you know what you can do instead of let it affect you in the wrong way.

You can choose to be in a great mood and kill them with kindness!

In my experience, their attitude changes 9 of 10 times.

They remember that they are in fact jolly old elves and even smile in spite of themselves!

And they usually take that holiday cheer and spread it elsewhere!

In the meantime, you have a good day too!

Rant over.

Merry Christmas!

I totally agree!!! I worked at Wal*Mart for ONE Christmas, and was always extremely nice to customers. Now that I have the experience there, I know how hard it is, but that makes me even more annoyed when a worker has a bad attitude there. I always kill them with kindess, a big smile, and a
"Merry Christmas!!" :)
