I thought about going about this in a sarcastic and brutal way, but then I remembered how being in retail has taught me to be polite even in the worst of circumstances. So, in keeping with the theme of this blog, I’m going to clue some of you in on the Do’s and Dont’s of shopping in a retail store. Maybe you are guilty of some things and perhaps you were unaware of others. Read and learn. Then apply.
1. Return your items to the store in which you bought them.
If there’s one thing you take from today, it’s this. You may not realize it, but you’re actually hurting my sales at my store when the store you originally bought it from still gets the credit for your purchase. Yes, our stores are part of the same company, but returns hurt our numbers and when my store gets at least 20 returns a day…it adds up. Also, don’t be that guy who comes in 10 minutes before close with a huge return. That’s a make or break. (And by break, I mean I break your face) Kidding.
2. Think twice before picking up your phone.
This is one of my biggest pet peeves. I understand we all have busy lives, but I would think that phone chat could be put on hold for 2 minutes while I try to have a polite conversation with you. It’s not only rude, but awkward. It makes me uncomfortable when I have to ask you a question or for payment. That line of customers behind you shouldn’t have to wait while you talk about how “So and so is such a whore.”
3. I run a business, not a daycare.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen kids as young as three running around, being loud and screaming in my store while their mom or dad shops. Too many parents let their kids go unsupervised while I have to constantly watch while they pull stacks of shirts off tables or make a nice tangled ball out of necklaces. It’s sad when I have to discipline your kids instead of you. I also am not at all surprised when you have to call security when your kid turns up missing. Maybe you should get one of those leash things. They make them in cute little animal kinds now, so it’s not as cruel looking!
4. That shirt you found online?
Oh yeah, we don’t have that one. Also; no, we won’t get it. And no, we don’t have it in the back either so don’t ask me to go double check. It’s what we call “Online Exclusives.” Yeah, I’m positive we don’t have it. The other manager you go ask will tell you the same thing too.
5. Don’t just bring a list. Bring pictures.
I like to think that I’m pretty knowledgeable about our product, but when you come at me with a hand written list that says, “Brown belt” or “Spirit Eagle Sweetie Pie Tee” I have no idea what the hell that is. Your guess is as good as mine, Grandma. Bring me a picture or a sku number and I’ll find it a lot faster.
6. When I say, “Hello!” I’m being polite. You should try it.
It’s pretty amazing that most people don’t know how to respond to great customer service. I’m honestly just being polite. I was kind of raised that way. (Thanks Mom and Dad) The least you can do is acknowledge me and say “Hi” or even “Thanks!” I also saw the way you just looked me up and down and then continued walking. Bad idea. You, my friend just gave me an invitation to follow and greet you in an even louder tone until you say hi back to me. It’s not a good situation for you to be in. To those that respond back with a happy and genuine, “Hi! I’m fantastic!” I love you. Thanks.
7. Be nice.
Let’s just take a minute to realize that I work early mornings, late nights, weekends and holidays. When you’re at home with your family enjoying Thanksgiving dinner, I’m home asleep in order to prepare for the biggest day of the year. When you’re opening presents on Christmas day and watching A Christmas Story with your quirky family, I’m at home sleeping to prepare for the next biggest shopping day of the year. (You know, the one where you return all the stuff you got the day before.) I never see my family. I deal with a lot of ungrateful people who think they deserve service at the drop of a hat. You can yell and be rude, but I have to smile, nod and tell you to have a nice day after you just called me a bitch.
8. Here’s the thing with receipts; They kind of prove that you bought it.
Understand that if you don’t have your receipt, you’re not getting cash back and you’re most definitely not getting the original amount back that you paid for it. Don’t get angry if you feel otherwise. Also, trying to return that pair of shoes that you allegedly “never wore” when the soles are worn out? Lady, come on. You’re not fooling anyone. I also cannot make “exceptions.” Rules are rules. You forget sometimes that I don’t make them. My corporate office does.
Meanwhile….That shirt that you wanted online is still not here. I told you we wouldn’t get it in. Oh yeah, it’s not in the back either. Would you like me to run in the back and make it for you?
9. Do I really have to tell you the price of every thing I ring up?
I mean really.
10. If you don’t like our prices, go to Wal Mart.
Believe it or not, I’m not a fan of trying to help you find items when all you do is whine and complain about the price of that $40 pair of pajama pants. Take your “That’s ridiculous” and “I’m just gonna go somewhere else” ….somewhere else.
11. “It doesn’t have a tag on it so I guess it’s FREE. Right?!” “Hahahahaha”
12. I don’t get paid to be a housekeeper.
Are you really that lazy that you have you leave your cup of Starbucks on my table of brand new sweaters? And before you ask, No. I cannot throw your smoothie away. It’s still full. Are you mad, bro? Walk 3 steps out the door and throw it away in a trash can. I do enjoy how you try to hide your sample cups of chinese food on shelves and inside fitting rooms though. I actually was kind of hungry.
13. If I tell you I can help you find a size, I’m not being polite…
I’m telling you this because in some way, you’ve managed to destroy my store. Do you know how long it takes to board fold a table of shirts? (It’s roughly 2 to 3 hours) And yet, you’ve demolished every stack in less than 2 minutes. I’m actually here to help you. I’ll find that size XL for you and I can probably do it a lot faster than you could have.
14. The mall is closed. You may leave now.
Imagine you’re at your job. It’s 5:00. You’ve had a long day and you’re ready to get home and relax. The problem is, you can’t because your boss is talking your ear off and doesn’t know when to stop. Doesn’t he know what time it is?! You start cleaning your desk off and grab your keys. Maybe he’ll get the hint. He doesn’t. You slowly start walking toward the door. Why is he talking about You Tube videos?! You start screaming in your head wondering when you’re ever going to leave this hell that you call work?! Oh, God why!? You just wanna go home! Ahhhh!!
Yeah, that’s how I feel when you stick around after close. I might even turn the music off just as a polite reminder. (But I know you won’t notice anyway) The mall may be closed, but I’m actually here 2 to 3 hours past closing time in order to finish paperwork and straighten the store. The only thing you’re doing is getting in the way of me being home on my nice comfortable couch with my 6 pack of Stella.
*Looks like my sarcasm worked its way through by the end of this blog. My apologies. In all seriousness though, my job is pretty awesome. The amount of good outweighs the bad. Sometimes I run into some difficult people, but it only takes that one friendly and appreciative customer to turn my bad day into a great one. Also, the people I work with are a delight.*

I will reblog this everyday until midterm elections come around, if that’s what it takes, so help me god.
Ah, the Dingbat Squad.
(I am having such a case of schadenfreude today. It would be unalloyed if their stupidity hadn’t cost good hard-working people money and damaged the US economy, and if they hadn’t also, entirely offhandedly, sat around for the guts of two weeks idly dicing with the fiscal welfare of the rest of the planet.)
I feel the same way. There are some political upsides to this, but the amount of damage done by their fucking temper tantrum is appalling.
You should remember these names. These are the people who voted to destroy the US’s credit rating and crash the global economy (which has only recently been brought back from the brink of another Great Depression, and yes, 2008 IS recent) rather than help poor and working-class people get health insurance. They voted to keep millions of government workers unpaid (thereby ruining not only them, but all the other private-sector workers who depend on that income) rather than let the first Black President’s achievement stand.
These are people who hate Obama more than they love their country. It’s not treason by the letter of the law because they didn’t do anything illegal, but it’s treason in spirit.
It is worth noting that, of the list above, only these Senators are up for election in 2014:
motherfuckers will say how things are “in Africa” like it’s one big place that’s homogenous throughout
but god forbid you say “Britain” when you mean “England”
But when you’re referring to Britain you can also be referring to Scotland and Wales… I’ve met some English people that got offended when I called them “British” and just wanted to be called “English”. Others didn’t care. I guess it’s all relative.
Yeah, and when you refer to “Africa,” you could be referring to Algeria, Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, São Tomé and Príncipe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, South Sudan, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia, or Zimbabwe, and those are just the 54 recognized sovereign states listed on wikipedia
Not to mention the fact that there are around 62,641,000 (62 million) people in the handful of countries in the UK, while there are around 1,032,532,974 (just over a billion) in the dozens of countries on the continent of Africa
Do you see why it’s a problem that people get who don’t give two shits about the “Africa” thing but still get super worked up about the “Britain” thing?
HEY EVERYONE CAN I TALK ABOUT TAGGING FOR A MOMENT?
If you tag a fandom or whatever by a very short abbreviation often it’s impossible to put it on tumblr savior without blocking a TON of other stuff.
So like, don’t tag your Game of Thrones posts just ‘got’. That’s going to block a million other things! People should be able to be able to block Game of Thrones without having to block the word ‘got’. Considering the content of Game of Thrones from time to time, this is especially important because there are people who are legitimately not comfortable seeing it. And I’ve noticed that tumblr likes to block really random stuff if it’s just a short, short abbreviation on tumblr savior even if you can’t find that letter combination in the actual posts (I used to have 2P on tumblr savior for 2ptalia, but I had to take it off within a couple of days because a good 1/3 of my dash was being blacklisted for some weird reason).
Another example- A ton of people on my dash tag Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan as just ‘SNK’. Please don’t do this. Attack on Titan is especially an issue because often the material being posted is really gory, and I know there are a lot of people out there who are not comfortable opening up their dash to see people being eaten.
This applies to any fandom though. Don’t tag just using abbreviations. It’s okay if you want to use that tag ALONG with your normal tag (for example tagging it ‘game of thrones’ and ‘got’ both), but please make sure a full series name is there.
(To tumblr users who are struggling with blocking these things, you can add a hashtag before what you put on tumblr savior- i.e. #got, which should help some, but in my experience it still doesn’t always work?)
Jury nullification. Pass it on.
Jury nullification is so fucking important.
This is something that more people should be aware of, if only because (in many states, at least) defense attorneys are actually prohibited from mentioning it to jurors. The law allows a jury to return a “not guilty” verdict contrary to the facts of the case, but not for the defense to inform them of that power or to argue for its application in the current trial.

So, by now you’ve heard that Walmart workers are walking out on strike on Black Friday. Here’s a quick primer on why they’re striking.
Let’s start with the basics. Walmart is the largest private employer in the world. They help set labor standards for almost every country on earth.
Walmart generated at least $405 billion in revenue last year, making it the 23rd largest economy in the world. Larger than Sweden.
Walmart remains an incredibly profitable company. But Walmart’s profits are America’s loss. Between 2000-2006, Walmart imported so much stuff from Chinese manufacturers that it eliminated nearly 200,000 U.S. jobs.
Walmart pays employees so little that they’ve cost taxpayers an estimated $1 billion per year in government assistance to their workers.
The result? Walmart is crazy rich.
So rich, in fact, that the Walton family — which owns a 49% stake in Walmart — is worth more than the bottom 40% of all American families combined. That means six people are worth more than an entire third of America.
But paying employees poverty wages isn’t enough for Walmart. They’ve also settled lawsuits alleging rampant wage theft from employees.
Locked workers in the store overnight.
And systematically pushed out full-time workers in favor of cheaper part-time workers.
This year, they decided to hike healthcare premiums for store employees by as much as 36%. And they don’t even offer health insurance to their part time employees.
They’ve also been messing with employee schedules, insisting on a new “flexible” scheduling policy. It’s flexible for Walmart, but not so much for workers. And let’s not forget they’ve chosen to open Walmart stores at 8pm on Thanksgiving Day this year.
Eventually, Walmart associates got fed up.
Two years ago, Walmart employees formed the Organization United for Respect at Walmart (OUR Walmart). Now they’ve got thousands of Walmart associates nationwide who are organizing around issues like erratic hours, low wages and retaliation by management in their stores.
Nothing like this has ever has ever happened in Walmart’s 50-year history. It’s an unprecedented moment for workers’ rights in America.
But Walmart has responded by attempting to silence its workers. Walmart even called the police and handcuffed a former employee who had simply been inside the store, talking to ex-coworkers about the Black Friday strike.
Then Walmart filed an “Unfair Labor Practice” (yes, we had the same reaction) last week.
So, now we’re three days away from the first nationwide strike of Walmart associates ever. How can you support the cause? There are a number of ways:
1. Show up on Black Friday and support the strikers.
2. Sponsor a Walmart striker by donating towards a $50 grocery gift card.
3. Donate your Facebook & Twitter account to Walmart strikers on Black Friday.
4. If you work at Walmart, become a member of OUR Walmart.
The bottom line is this — OUR Walmart is just getting started.
Hey loved ones. I know that many of us are stuck in the cycle in which we can’t afford not to go to places like Walmart. But we *have* to respect when workers call for a boycott. Workers are calling for you to boycott Walmart for Black Friday, which apparently starts on Thursday this year. So please stand in solidarity with Walmart workers, don’t buy anything from Walmart this weekend. In general, please don’t ever cross a picket line. And please try to join a protest with Walmart workers demanding justice, there’s one in every area!
I ain’t buyin shit from WallyWorld this weekend.
Since yesterday was the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics, here’s a round-up of some gender and sexuality related news for this year’s games, the good and the bad. Above is a Reuters photograph of Sarah Attar, a middle-distance runner, and one of the two Saudi Arabian women sent to this year’s Olympics, as she took part in the Parade of Nations yesterday. Here are more photos of Saudi Arabia’s female athletes at the opening ceremony.
- This is a pre-Olympics article from this June on Deadspin, but it’s a truly fabulous article. Marking the retirement of Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, Dvora Meyers looks at how critics and the public discuss female gymnast’s bodies in code. Unbelievably insightful and relevant to the coming weeks.
- This will be the fourth Olympics for Australian swimmer Liesel Jones, who first competed at age 14 and has since collected three gold medals, four silvers and a bronze and holds a number of world records. Some people, though, just want to take some page space to consider the important question of whether or not she’s gained weight.
- Clare Malone wrote yesterday at The American Prospect about female boxers, aesthetic femininity and our perceptions of women we see as competing in men’s sports. This is the first Olympics to feature women’s boxing.
- And, of course, there is the hormone question. Rebecca Jordan-Young and Katrina Karkazis wrote a mid-June op-ed for the New York Times decrying the IOC’s policies on sex verification, which will ban women with hyperandrogenism (naturally heightened levels of testosterone) from competition because it gives them an advantage deemed unfair. In the conversation had on Andrew Sullivan’s the Daily Dish, a number of points were brought up, including that other biological advantages, like Michael Phelps’ genetic disorder that gives him long limbs and hypermobile joints or other athletes who have unusually large aerobic capacities, are not treated in this way. (Oh, and remember Caster Semenya? She’s now reportedly receiving some sort of treatment that allows her to qualify under IOC hormone regulations and is being hailed as more “feminine.” Dear lord.) Check out Feministing’s mid-June post about policing femininity in sports and the Olympics.
- Quite disappointing news… Afghan female boxer Sadaf Rahimi was originally extended a wildcard invitation by the IOC despite not qualifying officially. The International Boxing Association, however, has decided that she cannot compete, citing concerns over her abilities in the ring. Check out some amazing photos of her, though. She’s still a trailblazer.
- Keelin Godsey also won’t be attending the games. He was hoping to be the first openly transgender competitor.
- In awesome things that have come out of the Olympics, though, the US managed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Title XIV in true style by sending more female athletes than male to London, a first for us.
- It’s also a global first: the first time that all participating countries are sending women to compete in the Olympics. Saudi Arabia, Brunei, and Qatar have ended their tradition of sending only males to compete.
- Saudi Arabia’s female judo competitor, Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shahrkhani, is currently in negotiations to be able to compete in a hijab.
- Over at the Washington Post, Nadia Mohammed considers the pivotal roles played in 2012’s Olympic Games by Muslim women.
- And check out some pieces profiling women athletes… The Atlantic on 17-year-old US boxer Claressa Shields, AKA “T-Rex.” Buzzfeed profiles America’s strongest person, Sarah Robles, who lives in poverty and remains ignored by sponsors despite her weightlifting prowess. Vogue has an awkward profile of flyweight US boxer Marlen Esparza (Vogue is awkward, not Esparza), but her story is definitely worth a read.
I will NOT be checking my tumblr dash. It just doesn’t load that well on my phone, and I’m not bringing my laptop. I WILL be checking livejournal (I have to moderate USxUK at least), but I won’t be replying to comments and I’ll probably miss some posts.
If you need to get in touch with me feel free to send me an email (everything . is . magic @ gmail dot com).
See you on July 5th!
Also if you are not following Harocation2012 already, here it is. This will be my trip photoblog, and I’ll be updating it throughout!
”THROUGH A RAPIST’S EYES” (PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS. it may save a life.) Reblog this!
It seems that a lot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such a situation. Everyone should read this especially each and every girl in this world.
THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD INFO TO PASS ALONG…
FYI - Through a rapist’s eyes! A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:
1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle. They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun, braid or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.
2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women whose clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.
3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.
4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.
5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.
6] Number three is public restrooms.
7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.
8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.
9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas, or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.
10] Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.
POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:
1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk: can’t believe it is so cold out here, we’re in for a bad winter. Now that you’ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.
2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.
3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.
4] If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and armpit or in the upper inner thigh - HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.
5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.
6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.
7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, go with your instincts. You may feel little silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.
FINALLY, PLEASE REMEMBER THESE AS WELL ….
I know you are smart enough to know these pointers but there will be some, where you will go “hmm I must remember that” After reading, forward it to someone you care about, never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do it.
2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans : if a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you…. chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side,put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU CLOSE the DOORS , LEAVE.
5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
a. Be aware: look around your car as someone may be hiding at the passenger side , peek into your car, inside the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. ( DO THIS TOO BEFORE RIDING A TAXI CAB) .
b. If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the
passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
c. Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).
7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!
8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better safe than sorry.
this is legit read this
Trust me, I live in a city, this is legit shit. Don’t think it won’t happen to you, be paranoid and safe!
I do most of the precautionary things already (I’m pretty paranoid), but there are some really great tips here I haven’t ever considered.
Reggie Clemons was sentenced to death in St. Louis as an accomplice to a 1991 murder. There was no physical evidence and since allegations have arisen of police coercion, prosecutorial misconduct, and a ‘stacked’ jury in the Clemons case. Despite so many lingering questions, Missouri is still planning to execute Reggie Clemons.
I actually live in Missouri right now. Normally I list Kansas on these things because that’s still my legal address, but I put Missouri this time in hopes that higher numbers within the state will help.
Can I ask you a favor?
