Seriously, FML today...

During our morning ritual of emailing back and forth Rose told me this story about how she went through the drive-thru at McDonalds, where she had a really rude drive-thru window person (I don't know what their official "title" is). To make a long story short, the drive-thru window guy commented on something that was not his business.

I hate mean/stupid people.
Next Story.

In my line of work I get to talk to "needy" people ALL FUCKING DAY LONG. I love the people I work with, but really dislike most of the people that I am trying to help.

Anyway, my phone has been ringing non-stop today. These people can't get enough of me. So, this dude calls me. He sounds upset...oh no. So, I start talking to him. He's angry with me and the system. I explain to him why I have done everything that I have, and even tell him that there is still hope (big fat lie, but whatever)...what does he do? HE TELLS ME OFF! He starts cussing and fuming at me. All I can do is sit with the phone up to my ear saying "Yes", "Yes sir", "I'm sorry" and "I understand", when all I really want to say is "If you have such a problem with what I'm doing, why don't you go get a fucking college degree, get up off your lazy ass, get a job, quit your mother fucking complaining and go on with your life."

I even tried to transfer this guy to my supervisor...she wasn't at her desk. Eventually he starts cussing at me and then just hangs up. Nice.

So, the moral of today's stories is to be nice to people you don't know (either at all or barely)...that a way, you 1. Won't be fired (hopefully) for something stupid you said to someone and 2. You will benefit from another's kindness and willingness to help you.

What is wrong with people these days?
