• I love my job i love my job…

    Ok, so after browsing many a letter on this site, I have come to realize that the vast majority of people who right to LettersIllNeverSend are writing about love. Whether it be love lost, love gained, or someone pining for love, there is a common theme. I am sorry to those who are reading this particular letter but this is not about that.

    This is about my job.

    I am 17 years old and my summer job is at a small ice-cream shop right by the ocean. I just got off working a 9 hour shift and I have noticed something. Many people who come to get ice-cream are rude. Not rude as in they don’t say thank-you, or they grab the free sample spoon from my hand instead of taking it gently (though many people also do this). I mean rude as in, “You are very stupid,” and “have you even been to school before?”. People roll their eyes at me, yell at me, and are just a horrible raincloud on a perfectly sunny day. You would think that people who come to receive ice-cream would be ecstatic to come and choose their favourite flavour of a delicious treat. While this is the case the majority of the time, many many people are not. A woman asked me if I was stupid today because I told her that I was not allowed to mix 2 flavours into 1 scoop. It does not feel nice to be treated poorly by complete strangers.

    So to whomever is reading this, though it may not be quite as interesting as the lost or gained love, please please treat others with kindness. It seems like common sense but you would be surprised how many people in this world manage to ignore that one simple piece of advice. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

    Also, in conclusion, do not fuck with those who are serving you food.

      Don’t worry your not alone. The consumer is an asshole because the consumer thinks there always right because they’ve been told there always right but neither they nore the employees make the rules so in essence the employer is always right because the employer makes the rules I only wish I could have bought some ice cream from you that day and been nice about it as a customer should be.

      Haha I feel your pain Hun. I work at blockbuster and you’d be amazed at how aggressive people get over movies. Literally had a grown man throw DVDs at me today because he went into our store, took a blu-ray off our blu-ray display and brought it up to the counter to rent it. And when he got home the genius finds that the disc won’t work in his DVD player. So he comes back and screams at me for giving him a “bad disc”. When I told him it definitely wouldn’t work in a DVD player cause they’re different platforms, he told me to fuck off and chucked it at my face.
      Ahh consumers. I hate them. Lolz
