Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.

I just had to share this anecdote of a customer today because the utter ridiculousness of it was so extreme that it merits mentioning. Okay, so this dude gets sent over to lawn & garden to purchase a grill that's out front. That's weird in of itself because he's supposed to get that up front, not in lawn & garden. Well after trying to get a clear answer out of what he's looking for, he pulls it up on his phone saying that he doesn't really care about color and we deduce that we do have one in a box. It'll take another person to get it down, but the moron I do not like from sporting goods was there, so it was all good.

"Well, how hard is it to assemble?"

I just stared at him for a moment because I didn't think he was being serious. "...I don't know...?"

"Then I want one from out front." So, I turned to Jason and told him to go get one from out front then.

"I can't. You need a key to get one of those." I just about facepalmed because I kinda assumed that getting a key was implied in my telling him to go get one from out front since we need someone on the register. Before I could tell him this, the customer interrupted asking about who does have a key then. Neither Jason nor myself know. I try to sell him the boxed one again when he asks me how hard it is to assemble.

"I don't know, sir. But it'd be a lot easier and faster to just get this one off the shelf than wait around and try to find someone who has the key and get them to come up and unlock one from out front."

"Well, I don't know how hard it is to assemble it. I want one from out front." My face.

So, I call customer service and get them to agree to give me a key to let me unlock the grill because they're too busy to unlock it themselves. I tell the customer to meet me out front and I'd get it for him. So, I speed off, get the key, and start untangling the grills. I get one free and pull it out just as he rolled up in his truck.

"No, no, I told you! I wanted the blue one!" My face. So, I get one blue one free and am about to start tying the others back up when he demands the middle one. My face. He then opened it up and said, "It doesn't come with an instruction manual or anything?" I was two seconds away from performing a mancheck.

"No, sir. You're honestly only guaranteed that when you buy it in a box."

"Oh, well that's just not right!" So, he starts grumbling and opens up the blue one I have free and takes the manual that was left inside it. "Thank you, Miss Crystal."

I had one of those brief moments of genius where I thought to myself that we should do something fun! What better way to have fun than watch a VAMPS DVD with friends? I've actually opened up a livestream channel for the sole purpose of this! So, for that reason, you have the poll below the cut. Now, before you got scuttling off to the poll, there's some stuff I gotta lay out because dealing with timezones can be wicked confusing.

All the times/dates listed are in EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME (EDT) & not your local time (unless you live in the same timezone as myself)! To be able to figure out what time works best for you, use the World Clock Converter. It's fairly self-explanatory, but here's an example:

Say I live in Tokyo & I'm available on Tuesday (5/17) at 2PM in said timezone. Put in all that information at the top. Then for the "place to convert to," select U.S.A. – Kentucky – Louisville. Then bam! The time that comes out for Louisville's time is the time you'd pick on the poll.

Another important note: all 12AM's listed mean that 11:59PM of that day it's listed under just passed. So, for example for Monday (May 16), selecting 12AM is signifying 12AM between Monday & Tuesday, not Sunday & Monday. That means if something you convert pulls up with May 17 12:00AM, pick the 12AM listed under May 16 to get the right time.

If you're stuck or confused still, just let me know and I'll give you hand.

The time/date + instructions for watching on livestream (and the URL) will be posted shortly thereafter.
Get votin"!Collapse )

I have to share this utterly creepy, horrific story that literally left my face in the same expression for a few minutes. Some of it is a bit old news but I shall recap regardless.
Bit lengthy but omfgCollapse )
I am so glad he quit and that he started to leave me alone even before then. What the actual fuck?

Some animal rights activists are fighting to replace the term 'owner' with 'guardian' to convey a more balanced relationship between a person and her or his pet. Do you agree or disagree with the importance of this mission?

While I don't feel like I "own" my pets rather they are members of my family and would go so far as to say they're my children, I feel that's a little trivial. I know a lot of things often just refer to owners as parents to the pets. I think this is a case of animal rights activists just need something to fight about/over and giving people really concerned with actual animal rights a bad name by making their cause look--well, to be blunt--stupid. Yes, I'm looking at you Peta.
