I lost my job in October (laid off) and I'm lucky enough that I can spend a few months unemployed and I cannot tell you how grateful I am that I can spend one holiday season out of retail (especially THIS fucking holiday season) because holy shit it would be like this every fucking day practically and I would probably be in prison for murder or something.
The last couple weeks at my store we had a few people like this. Not so much dipshit entitled Trump racist shits (although there were a few of them) as much as people literally incapable of comprehending that "going out of business" means no returns no complaints to the manager, no more company...nothing, and it drove them utterly insane that their perpetual consumer victim role that they have donned for their entire adult life means absolutely nothing in the fact of employees who don't give a shit, managers who don't give a shit, and an entire corporation that doesn't give a single shit. It was a thing of weird beauty to witness like a nature show or something.
I work in a liquor store in a really rich and white neighborhood. The Christmas music started roughly two weeks ago, every day I deal with stressed white women who don't know dick about shit, my boss is socially awkward but thinks she's normal and it doesn't even pay me enough to afford rent.
You know maybe the terrorists have a point.
Can I rp a trump supporter?
HEY YOU GUYS BLACK PEOPLE GO ON RANTS LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME
The steady stream of Trump Trash meltdown videos are gonna get us all through the next 4 to 8 years.

The woman is clearly schizophrenic and needs help. That said, the plastic bag switch-out has been going on for a year in Chicago and you're just now noticing? Was an ass-hole.
Oh God. The whole plastic bag thing. We've just begun implementing this in California. Yes, it seems as if the grocery stores are reluctant to sell more bags than necessary (they cram the bags full). The choices remaining are: Reuse the bags and bring your own, put the items in a grocery cart without bag, or buy a bag(s) at the mercy of the store (they decide how many you get).
You notice how wasteful it was before though? Did I really need a separate bag for my eggs, my bread, gallon of milk, 6 pack of beer that has a handle...etc, etc.
Stater Bros I go to just immediately switched to selling big sturdy reusable plastic bags (or paper) for 10 cents each, and I'm getting used to keeping them in the car.
I've been keeping canvas shopping bags in my car for years now, and I didn't pay one cent for any of them. I don't see what the big deal is.
Yeah, its pretty wasteful, and the bags end up blowing around in the wind. B-but doggie doo bags!
We've had the bag law in my city for quite some time, and people generally like it because the 10 cent bags they DO sell are incredibly durable and will never break just because they're packed with heavy liquids like soda bottles and what-have-you. They also sell very cheap but sturdy fabric bags, which our household has been re-using for years.
She wouldn't leave the store because she knew someone would be in the parking lot waiting or her.

I wonder if any of these public fits stem from Trump supporters realizing deep down that Trump is not, in fact, a revolutionary who will save America and is much more likely to be the scandal-prone figurehead for a less competent version of the Bush years' Republican leadership.
Admitting that, of course, would be admitting that you were duped, and it's easier to scream about your fellow airline passengers or some department store's checkout policies.
I think it's because so many of the people who's pinned their hopes on Trump did so because they're losers. They'll soon find that they're lives still suck even with Trump in office, and that the steel mill isn't coming back.
michaels is such a magical place
I work for a liquor chain that recently opened their first store in my state. They had the well-intentioned idea that, out of good will for the community and to get more people through the doors, they'd offer free pilsner glasses and free wine totes--no purchase necessary--through a local mass mailer and newspaper.
We blew through at least 15k of each item in the first week and are still inundated with furious calls from locals demanding that we honor their coupons for free swag, despite the fact that 'while supplies last' is clearly visible on the offer. I've never seen so many people lose their shit over something so trivial.
Five stars for what the fuck.
She gives a lot of the mannerisms and ticks of mental illness. This seems to be less about Trump or anything like that and more that she just has problems.
Apparently she was videoed doing this exact same thing at a coffee shop (video is off the web for the moment) and is well known in the neighborhood for basically doing this everywhere.
To the credit of Michael's, they are actually standing behind the employees against the woman as opposed the usual, gutless corporate bullshit most business do of just firing/punishing everyone and then saying "OH SO SORRY TO EVERYONE FOR THEIR NEGATIVE CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE"
Gutless corporate bullshit is the MO, but videos like this are hard to fight. Anyone having public freakouts like this should shut up and apologize the moment they realize they're being recorded, but she's likely so full of herself that she thinks the internet will take her side.
