Now when I go shopping I don’t even touch shit unless I know I want it lol cus I know that pain i’m that person you see folding something and putting it back after i’ve looked at it lol ^^^ And if I can’t fold it back perfectly they’re gonna at least see that I tried. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ All.of.this Worked in retail almost half a decade, and let me tell y'all this is daily, not just Black Friday or summer sales. I’ve had people look me straight in the eyes while they knock over a perfectly folded stack of shirts off a table so they could put down their Starbucks cup. People leave food, drinks, diapers, used pads and bandages, even one time an actual syringe on tables. I’ve had people destroy entire displays and complain about how dirty and “why don’t employees respect their own store” while I was directly next to them frantically trying to fix what they, themselves, just messed up. This shit is so ingrained in me now that I fixed displays while on vacation in Disney World for a full half hour. And before anyone says anything, no, actually picking up after grown adults that should know better, it actually isn’t my job to clean up after you all day. We have customer service, check for product, work the registers, keep the bathrooms clean, deal with angry customers, try to prevent shop lifting, and keep the store running. Recovery (fixing displays) is supposed to be low on our list because people aren’t supposed to be selfish shitheads. If you wouldn’t destroy your friend’s house, don’t destroy retail shops. I’ve literally had people ask me if I work at several stores before because I’m cleaning up after myself??? like they are asking me for help and I’m like “idk I don’t work here” then they are like “then why are you cleaning?” It’s,,, basic manners,,, to clean after yourself,,, what is wrong with people,,,

Books, Children, and Creepy: havingbeenbreathedout Sometimes I think back on the time I spent working as a barista, and it seems SO STRANGE to me that "coffee shop AU" has become synonymous with narratives that are low on conflict, high on wholesome romance. During the year l spent working at a coffee shop A coworker of mine took a bunch of psyche- delics, walked through some strangers' plate- glass door, and threatened them with a bowie knife, leading to his arrest and imprisonment (and, needless to say, a late opening for the coffee shop that morning) Another coworker, an ex-military type with a young wife and a new baby, decided to smoke up for the first time ever with two other mutual coworkers, in the back of one of their trucks; and ended up having a three-way with them which ended his marriage .I had a nervous breakdown, stopped being able to eat food or hold conversations, and ended up sleeping on my coworker's couch for three weeks before she finally called my parents to come collect me Multiple store managers were fired for embezzlement. (Reminder: this was within the space of a single year.) .Yet another coworker, who was seventeen at the time, started dog-sitting for a couple of regulars in their (I'm guessing) early 50s, and ended up in an ongoing creepy and incidentally illegal relationship~ with them both Various employees discovered, in the course of cleaning the bathrooms: couples fucking in the bathrooms; junkies passed out in the bathrooms; drunks puking in the bathrooms; both adults and children weeping in the bathrooms, a woman bleeding all over the bathroom from a gash in her throat (??); a dude standing in the middle of the bathroom floor and pissing in the opposite direction from the toilet, so that when the employee opened the unlocked door she got piss all over her (????) The owner of the bridal shop across the street was exposed as both abusive toward her employees and also cooking the books, which led to my coffee shop taking on a couple of untrained and weirdly conservative bridal shop workers for a few months while the bridal shop was shuttered and sold to new owners. Later the larcenous former bridal shop owner came down with some horrible disease which caused her to lose both her hands There was a regular universally referred to as Sketchy Steve," who came in at 7am for a three- shot latte with room for Seagrams 7, and de drugs to all us baristas. I actually, at one point cannot believe I was this stupid), went Sketchy Steve's house, and allowed him to spend like half an hour showing me his collection of découpaged outlet plates and also soliciting me for sex while I uncomfortably yet studiously declined Right before I started, the store manager had walked off the job in the middle of a shift, and side of the employees had walked out after him None of them ever returned Like, working on the front lines of food service was the most operatically sordid professional experience I have ever had, and one of the most surreal; and it is hilarious to me that THAT, of all jobs, is the one that has come to stand for soft-focus domestic romance in fandom circles wenamedthedogkylo This is the Coffee Shop AU we deserve Coffee Shop IRL

Food, Melania Trump, and Memes: Donald Trump's White House Infested with Mice, Roaches and Ants @balleralert Donald Trump's White House Infested with Mice, Roaches and Ants – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ NBC 4 Washington has obtained several hundred White House work orders, which include several requests to deal with an infestation of mice, cockroaches, and ants. According to reports, mice have been spotted in the situation room and the Navy mess food service area of the historic landmark and home of the Celebrity-in-chief. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cockroaches have been seen in at least four other parts of the White House, while ants have made a home in the chief of staff’s office. However, extermination demands weren’t the only maintenance requirements included in the work order. One request asked for a redecoration of national security adviser H.R. McMaster, while another requested a new Oval Office toilet seat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The mice issue dates back to at least two years, however, other requests from 2017, include new furniture for White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and drapery installation in Melania Trump’s second-floor East Wing office. Although the work orders vary, the U.S. General Service Administration (GSA) says the entire process is a lot of work, considering the age of the building. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s an enormous job. GSA is assigned to manage that job,” former GSA Inspector said. “GSA hires contractors and subcontractors for the [maintenance] work. Then the agency must watch over the contractors.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “They are old buildings,” he said. “Any of us who have old houses know old houses need a lot of work.”

Food, Juvenile, and Memes: Man Arrested For Stealing $1.2 Million In Fajitas @balleralert Man Arrested For Stealing $1.2 Million In Fajitas - blogged by @miss_binky ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A Texas man is facing felony charges of first degree theft after being accused of stealing over $1.2 million in fajitas. Gilberto Escamilla was responsible for ordering food for the Cameron County Juvenile Justice Department in Bronwsville, and it turns out he was ordering a little "extra" for himself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Escamilla had taken a day off for a medical appointment last week, when the kitchen received a call about their expected 800-pound fajita delivery. The woman who answered the call insisted that the food service driver was mistaken, because the facility doesn't even serve fajitas. However, the driver informed her that he has been delivering fajitas to that location for over nine years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The next day, Escamilla was confronted about the delivery, and admitted that he had been stealing fajitas from the company for years. He was immediately terminated, and subsequently arrested after a search warrant turned up packets of fajitas in his home refrigerator. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to District Attorney, Luis V. Saenz, Escamilla had been selling the fajitas on the side. "He would literally, on the day he ordered them, deliver them to customers he had already lined up. We’ve been able to uncover two of his purchasers, and they are cooperating with the investigation." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After more investigating, including going through past purchase orders and invoices, the DA's office determined that over the years Escamilla was able to steal $1,251,578 worth of fajitas.

Bones, Butt, and Family: Gluten Free Intolerant <p><a href="http://en-shaedn.tumblr.com/post/148604766932" class="tumblr_blog">en-shaedn</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://inquisitorladybloomers.tumblr.com/post/148434226294">inquisitorladybloomers</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://theoneandonlykyna.tumblr.com/post/91366996976">theoneandonlykyna</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>My open letter to <a href="http://www.Theberry.com">www.Theberry.com</a> for their photo they potsted of a button stating “gluten free intolerant” that appears to be on a chef’s jacket *shudder*</p> <p class="MsoNormal">My dear berries,</p> <p class="MsoNormal">What you see here is me the sickest I’ve ever been in my whole life. Some doctors had given up on me while others remained baffled.  I was in the hospital with inflamed organs, locked joints, unable to eat, scared, and malnourished to the point of broken teeth, bones, and hair loss.  This is the day they figured out why.  I have Celiac Disease.  The protein gluten found in wheat, barley, and rye had caused my immune system to wreak havok on my body and destroy the villi in my intestines.  Without villi it is impossible to absorb nutrients you need to survive.  A gluten free diet saved my life.  My organs began to heal themselves and with time I was able to trade in my handicap sticker for a 5k bib.  This is the same gluten free diet you made fun of this morning in your morning coffee album.  In case you forgot it was a nice big photo of a button stating, “gluten free intolerant.”</p> <p class="MsoNormal">This disease is life threatening but somehow has become the butt of every joke.  Until now the Berry was one of the few places I could go and not worry about being ridiculed.   I cannot watch TV, listen to the radio, or go on the internet without hearing someone make fun of gluten or call everyone on the diet an annoying hipster.  I realize it is because so many have gone on the diet as a fad weight loss solution.   These are the same people that can’t even tell you what gluten is… As Jimmy Kimmel so kindly showed us.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">The jokes, viral youtube videos, and photos are dangerous and have put me and others like me in danger.   The onslaught of negative gluten freeness on the internet, TV, and radio have caused friends, family, and food service workers to view this diet as a joke rather than medical necessity.  They roll their eyes then proceed to contaminate our food (or blatantly give us gluten) because they honestly do not believe that it will cause any real harm.  It only takes 1/5 of a crumb to cause a gluten reaction.  And no it’s not a tummy ache it’s weeks of vomiting, skin rashes, crippling joint and muscle pain, and dizziness… just to name a few.  Every joke puts a celiac that much closer to danger.  I love the Berry and I am heart broken.  Please rise above the ignorance. Please give us a place where we can go without seeing our disease laughed at. Please, for the sake of those struggling and those who have lost the struggle.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">Sincerely,</p> <p class="MsoNormal">A Celiac survivor </p> <p class="MsoNormal">I’d also like to note that the first response to this was, “lighten up.”</p> </blockquote> <p>This, THIS is how dangerous a fad diet can be. Ever since the gluten free fad started, nobody takes seriously the people who have actual dietary restrictions for gluten. It’s disgusting that this would happen. (I don’t have celiac disease myself but I know people who do and others who simply can’t tolerate it for other medical reasons and the public’s treatment of everyone who eats gluten free seriously affects them.)</p> </blockquote> <p>One of my family’s dear friends has Celiac. He has been on the verge of death twice because of restaurants (once) and airlines (the other once) disregarding his statement that he CANNOT have gluten. He is as responsible as he can be, and sometimes he is still placed at the whim of other people. There are lots of fad diets, but that doesn’t matter. If someone asks for soy, give them soy. If someone asks for gluten free, give them gluten free. Don’t risk someone’s life for your self-righteousness, no matter how obnoxious paleo people are.</p></blockquote>
