Some people are idiots

I accept electronics for recycling. I'm working today (and yesterday). I gave my staff the week off to be with family because my hubby is away and I'd just be depressed at home. That's the background.

A woman phone because she was sitting directly in front of my door and the door was locked. I told her I was standing at my door and didn't see anyone. Her tone was accusatory as she swore she was at the right address and I was being wilfully ignorant by not opening the door for her. We are in building 14 and she was at building 20.

I had two able-bodied men drive up with a heavy Sony TV. All they did was complain that it was really heavy and did I have a cart to use for moving it.... The van door was two feet from my loading dock door. Lifting the TV out of the vehicle and onto a cart would be just as much effort as lifting onto the floor of the loading dock. In fact, using a cart would have taken more effort than just holding it for two seconds longer and setting it on the floor. I finally got sick of listening to them and started to lift the 150 pound TV by myself. Did either of them help? No, they stood back and watched as it fell on my foot. Not only did it fall on my foot, it missed the steel toe and will definitely leave a bruise. As they were leaving they commented, "That was painless." I doubt they even realize the irony of their statement.

All I can say is that after two days of lifting really heavy TVs, I am definitely going to need some muscle relaxants. My back has been in spasms for most of the day. My foot is now throbbing. I have another three and a half hours to get through before the end of the day and I'm just hoping I don't kill some idiot.
