Its BubbleGirl again!Fucking ARGHHH!! I need to rant about last night!
I used to be in Electronics before I came to run the front end, so I've done a lot of new releases. I released the PS3 and Wii when they came out; I've released years worth of Madden games; Halo 3; Harry Potter books... you get the picture. I'm really good at doing high custy-volume new releases and I actually enjoy it (most of the time.)
There are a few different types of people who show up to new releases:
Nerds- (my absolute fave) are quiet and orderly and know how to stand in lines. I married a nerd for this reason. When other wive's husbands are out cheating at the bar, mine is home playing Final Fantasy XIII.
Jocks- The ones that play Madden and Call of Duty with their 'bros'. They get rowdy and throw stuff around, but even though I'm a small woman, I can boss people around easily so they usually calm down after a bit of yelling and things go OK.Fangirls- high pitched screaming, back talking, mess making, hormone dripping, disaster bringing pre-teens of DOOM.
As you might know, New Moon (from the Twilight saga) came out at midnight last night.
My Wal-Fart was filled with hundreds of screaming pre-teen fangirls half the night.
Screeches of "Team Edward" and "Team Jacob" could be heard all through the store.
It was awful.
We did a re-creation of Bella's Birthday from the movie/book and cake was EVERYWHERE. Apparently between the ages of 10 and 15 you HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO USE A MOTHERFUCKING TRASHCAN.
Someone had the brilliant idea to make punch the color of blood and now the floor around Jewelry looks like a fucking BLOODBATH. I could have slit someone's throat and it would have made less of a mess.
When it came time to hand out the movie all hopes of a line were lost as squealing girls started mobbing and groping our associates in an attempt to grab one of the FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND copies of New Moon we had.
On top of that, it was a Friday night and I had NO coverage for cashiers because I guess everyone got the day off except me.
Fuck my life.
NO, NO YOU STUPID FUCKING COW!! Suspended transactions go INACTIVE after midnight so I had to explain this to her and shes just like "You should have told me!"
WHAT THE FUCK!? She didn't tell me it was a christing EBT order and anyway, I'm not responsible for the fucking foodstamps balance!
So I politley unbagged everything and made her wait. Yay. How many bastard kids do you have to have to get that many foodstamps anyway? Goddamn COW is having COW CHILDREN HELLSPAWN and my TAX DOLLARS are paying for it.
To top off the night, management fired a cart pusher (again) so I had to go get carts (again) while it was snowing (again) because I live in the middle of Cold-as-Witch-Tits Winter Hell.
I was hoping for hypothermia so I could go home early but no luck. Bah.
