#Retailproblems

So I've been working in Retail for almost a year and a half and I LOVE it! But just like every job it has it's downfalls.

Honestly I HATE uniforms, I own more clothes then I can count and yet everyday I'm forced to wear Khaki pants. GROSS. I don't mind the jersey so much but Khakis?! Really? so unoriginal. It is hard to find cute khaki pants let alone a pair you don't have to iron every single time you wear them!!!!

Working at the mall is cool because you get discounts on food but mall food gets gross after a while I can only eat so much chow mien, or corn dogs, or even subway. And not to mention paying a dollar for every drink I buy I'm pretty sure i've spent over $200 on drinks over the past year. And trust me I don't get paid the big bucks. Commission can be great because on busy days you can sell over $1000 but the downfall is if someone returns something you've sold them that money gets taken out of your paycheck faster then it went in.

I never noticed before working in retail but there are so many little things we have to do to make our stores look the way they do. Such as facing all of the hangers the same way (yes that is a rule). or putting shirts in size order. and speaking of shirts I can't stand it when customers 'try' to fold shirts and put them back or even worse hide them!!! I get paid to fold shirts so let me do my job!!!

You've all heard the saying "The customer is always right!" But the actual saying is "The customer is always right, unless they're wrong, and if they cause a scene then they are right." It's shocking to me the lengths people go to just to get a discount on an item. And I don't make the prices so yelling at me won't get you anywhere. I also hate it when people treat me like an idiot, I work at a sports store so YES i do actually know about sports. When you buy a Brooklyn Dodgers hat thinking it's a red sox hat even AFTER I told you it wasn't. You look like the idiot coming back to return it. I understand I'm a girl so you wouldn't expect me to name off players but I can.

We are required to greet every customer as they walk in the store, and if you don't greet them there's a chance they could be a 'secret shopper' a secret shopper is a person that our company pays to come and shop in our stores and grade us on appearance of the store and customer service. The last secret shopper I had come in gave me a perfect score BUT they docked me points because I didn't smile very much...SMILE... um you've got to be kidding me.  We have hundreds of stores and our cooperate people wouldn't know me if they saw me on the street but they know my name and my numbers and now they think i'm some awful person who never smiles...

Honestly I'm super OCD and a germaphob and it drives me nuts when people put their gross hands on our windows. I clean them every single shift I work.

Other things I hate are how i'm not allowed to sit at work. and our stupid vacuum we have the vacuums you put on your back, they look like something you'd see on Ghostbusters. When people steal things, so stupid... and when people come in at 8:59 and stay until 9:20 when I want to get home and sleep!

Pretty much I get paid to watch TV and it's very embarrassing that I can quote about every commercial out there!

PDA and other things people shouldn't do in public

Alright so i'm all for people being happy, world peace and all that shiz. But honestly some people need to understand that some things should not be happening in public. Hence the title of this post *see title of blog post*

That is great that you are in LOVE seriously! But I don't enjoy seeing too much of it going down in the middle of the hallway or at church....yes at church.

Anyways let me tell you guys a story

It all happened last semester I had scheduled a study room in the library. I had a health final coming up so I thought I'd get a little studying done. Little did I know I'd be getting a FULL ON health lesson. As I walked up to the study room I saw it.....well them...DOING IT!!!! *getting it on, getting down, horizontal dancing* You get it. they weren't studying. It was horrifying!!!!!!

So as you can see I am now and forever scarred for life.

No name

I've been struggling guys!  I do fine when i'm with friends or family but when i'm alone I panic! Sometimes I wish I could put everyone elses life on hold so I can take five minutes to worry about myself but it's impossible!

School is stressing me out, I sit down to study and I don't know where to start. I sit in class and worry about my family and my friends. So far I've been doing good this semester in school but this week has been a trial. I'm being pulled so many different directions that it makes it hard!

I don't really like the month of February it brings back some bad memories. But worst of all it's the month I lost my rock in my life. My grandma! I still don't understand why Heavenly Father would take her from me and my family. We never did anything wrong! I wanted her at my High School Graduation, I wanted to show her my pictures from the dances I went to. I wanted her to meet the boys I dated, and most of all I wanted her there when I was struggling.

My past is full of disappointments and heartaches but I know that everyday is a new day and as long as i make it tomorrow i'm doing fine! I'm not going to look past tomorrow because there is no reason to.

I am thankful for the people in my life who have never doubted me and stuck by through all my mistakes and failures! And I can promise you this, I'll stick by every single one of yours if you'll let me! My door is always open and i'm always here to listen!

The Church Is True!



So I know that some people that read my blog aren't LDS but that's okay! I just wanted to share this amazing experience with everyone!

So I was raised in the LDS church (mormon) and have always loved going to church and loved the gospel. But i've always been told that you get that true conversion moment where no part of you denies the church or questions it.

I always thought that I had that moment at Girls camp a few years back. but oh was I wrong.

I love reading books from deseret book they are GRAND! anyways I read one the other night and this feeling came over me. I knelt and prayed and I felt like someone was hugging me!! It was amazing! i couldn't stop crying! I have NEVER felt the spirit so strong!!

I didn't even want to go to sleep! I just wanted to kneel and talk to my best friend all night!!! Guys the church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is TRUE!!!!!!
