Not such a good day

Today was a terrible day. I even yelled at a customer. I try to control my reactions, even when I'm not treated well, and I think I did fairly well. My yelling at him was controlled and calculated to make him back off. It didn't work because he was completely oblivious to having crossed polite boundaries. His obliviousness caused me to lose my cool, which made me really upset. Kudos to me: I didn't cry in frustration until I was alone.

For the record, three months falls outside the 30 day warranty period and reformatting the hard drive is not returning the system in the same state in which it was sold (with operating system installed and working). Also, constant badgering and invading personal space is cause for banishment from the store.

Apparently, we are not the first store to banish this guy.


*hugs* (I can do that virtually)

All of that was stated for the record is so true...
Thanks for the hugs. I know that's difficult for you.

Someone else gave me a hug and it just made me cry more. I don't know why that is. Why can I not receive compassion without crying harder?

I took today off as a mental health day. It isn't helping yet.

Good gods!
A Romulan at your doorstep.

Story you felt invaded by this man
Thanks for the hugs. A Klingon blaster would make short work of the nasty Romulan.

I took Friday off as a "mental health day". I'm not sure it's working. I've done nothing but sleep and eat candy. I suppose it is a good sign that I haven't yet opened the booze. Maybe I'll do that after I go for my workout.
You've been sleeping a lot and eating comfort food and it is not working? That Romulan has had more impact than I imagined he would. Did he trigger something?
I think a depression has been building and he was the proverbial straw for this camel's back. Seasonal allergies, insufficient sleep, and stress just made me vulnerable.

By the way, I didn't open the booze at all. I'm a good girl, I am.

I'm feeling a little better today. Still allergy-ridden; but less vulnerable.

Thanks for the concern, Emma. It is appreciated.
Glad to read things are developing in a good direction.

This stress was that related to the new business model (the new law?)
I think the stress is just my body telling me to take some time for myself. One day a week is not really enough, especially when that is the day I do school work. Also, allergy season has just begun again. Having moved from the city to a small town, I find my allergies are worse. It must be all the green, growing things. *grin*
Ah yes, if your body is anything like mine than, sooner of later, your body will announce that you should have taken better care to start with.
Re: allergies: are there any NLP Masters that studied with Richard Bandler in your yellow pages ...?
(If Bandler can stop allergies hypnotically, chances are that his pupils can too...)
Alas, even if there are, I cannot afford to see one. I just make sure I get lots of rest so my immune system can fight, fight, fight.

As for taking care of the body, I'm finally doing that. Working out at Curves has allowed me to turn 1.4% of my body weight from fat into fat-burning muscle. Yeah! I'm finally seeing some results.

That's awful. I'm so sorry you had to go through that. That customer sounds like a complete idiot. Well, kudos to you for handling this nasty situation as well as you did. It may not be much comfort, but, in the end, the customer basically screwed himself. Not only did he stupidly ignore those warranty conditions but he also got himself banished from yet another store. And, hey, it's the weekend: the long weekend! I hope you can put this bad day behind you and enjoy it. :-)
Yup, it is a long weekend. I get two days off in a row. I'm looking forward to it.

I've put him behind me and am moving on now.
