Patience is a virtue?

I despise that saying. I have about as much patience as a newborn by a nipple. Waiting for things frustrate me beyond anyone's imagination. I. Hate. Waiting.

So today I worked. It was pretty slow in the morning but damn it picked up after noon. And then? It happened. After working in the pharmacy for 3 months, I finally got my first customer that I probably could've killed if I had a gun. This bitch needed a bullet to her head. She walked up bitchy and nothing good could come of it.

My dilemma? Oh jeez, I suck at customer service when the customer is an asshole or a bitch. It takes every ounce of patience NOT to strangle them or unleash my own fury. And believe me, I could've made this woman cry with my venom. I wanted to as well.

Did I? Dammit! No.

I'm kind of pissed at myself for NOT doing what comes so naturally for me. But alas, another day, I am employed.

So, what do you do when someone pisses you off and you can't do a damn thing about it? Are you like me and think of things you should've said like 5 hours later? Do you imagine meeting them in an alley and kicking their fat asses until they're pulp?


Damn. I need medication.

Have a great weekend! Be safe! Wear flame retardant clothing and bring your condoms!

If I've offended you or expressed anything you don't agree with, don't worry, I'll probably do it again.


  1. Yes, I do all those things, though I don't have to do customer service, just put up with my annoying boss nagging me a hundred times a day through Email even though we're like 10 feet apart.

  2. Ugh, I saw we make a gang. We could even have a gang sign and kick everybody's ass who's ever pissed us off that we couldn't do a damn thing about it. :)

    I do feel somewhat comforted that you do the same thing. Weird?
