Frustration Station

April 19, 2009

What I wish I could announce over the PA system:

“Good evening bookstore customers. The time is now 9:45 and the store will be  closing in 15 minutes time, at 10 o’clock. If you have left any stacks of books on or beside chairs, coffee cups on shelves, or piles of magazines on the window sill, now would be a great time to put them back neatly, exactly where you found them, so that we don’t have to clean up after your piggyness. For your shopping convenience, we will re-open tomorrow morning, at 9:30 AM. Thank you for shopping at our store, and have a wonderful night”.

..Because honestly, sometimes it gets to be too much. Yes, I am there to shelve books, and mildly clean up after you. But I think it’s rude to leave piles of books sitting on tables or hundreds of magazines scattered. I mean, who does that?? I would actually never even do that, even before I worked at the bookstore. It’s RUDE. Don’t do it. You have no idea how annoying it is. Oh and while I’m at it: don’t just leave books/magazines from one shelf on another shelf. That’s how books get lost if somebody doesn’t notice, and that’s what you get mad at when you can’t find that one book. It’s your fault! Just leave them all on a kiosk or somewhere visible, if you must. If you must. Yeah, it’s my job, but only to a certain extent.

It’s a rant, folks. I’ll still perform my job, but every so often, screaming is necessary.
