So there's a woman who comes in every week and (I think) she's as rude & blunt as a tenderised Joan Rivers.
Anyhow, it is clear that her taste in movies is quite different to mine. I know this because she will constantly say that she only asks what I think of certain movies so she can avoid the ones I like. For a while I would argue that if she ignores ALL of the movies I like then how does she know if she's missing some great films? Anyhow... now its gotten to the point that I am so sick of her going on and on about how much my taste sucks that I just lie and tell her that various movies are crap (but I actually love em) and she returns them saying things like "you hated this? it was great!".
I had to laugh because a few moments ago she came in with the movie Big Stan and said "its a good thing I'm not homophobic" and she went on a tyrade about how much "poofy" content there was and that there's no way she would expose her kids to this sort of crap. All the while my thoughts were stuck on a loop of her saying "Im not homophobic, Im not homophobic, Im not homophobic".
Anyhow, that little incident certainly perked up my day. There's some characters out there, that's for sure..... to be polite.
These are some of the films she's ignored because I liked them:
- The Reader
- Ghost Town
- Gran Torino
- Burn After Reading
- The Wrestler
- The Boat That Rocked
- Lakeview Terrace
And these are some films that she thought were fantastic
- Confessions of a Shopaholic
- Surfer Dude
- Bride Wars
- Make It Happen
- Nights In Rodanthe
You get the picture....
Boy am I having "one of those days"....
I've got a most notorious pest/member phoning up every 5 minutes to ask if we've got certain titles. After 10 calls I had to tell him to stop. "Mate, compile you're list of enquiries and THEN call."
I've got some old couple arguing that they didn't know that the dvd "Knowing" was a new release. Of course they did! They took it from the new release shelf, paid the new release price and the cover is clearly marked with "1 Night New Release" (they claim it wasn't). I offered to slice the late fee in half but they were still stroppy.
My delivery of Pink Panther 2 was seven untits short and the distributor's system is currently down so I cannot track where the other copies have got to.
Some kid trambled muddy gumboots through the shop.
Some dickhead forced their after hour returns through a small covered slot beneath our front door. They had to break the seal in order to do so when there is a perfectly good (and large) returns box less than a meter away.
Some guy tries to use his sisters account but didn't have a membership card. He cracked the shits and gave me attitude and said "Look, we've been through this before" to which I replied "Oh, so you know our policies and know importance of having a membership card?"
Some bitch cracks the shits at me because the titles she wanted to rent are currently out to other members. Sorry, not exactly my fault.
And it's only lunch time.
