    Pregnant With Anger

    | Stevens Point, WI, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Health & Body

    (I am pregnant, and have to stop at a store to pick up a prescription. While waiting, I decide to look at their maternity clothes. Two female workers are standing around chatting. Worker #1 is very young, and Worker #2 is definitely middle aged.)

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Workers: *chatting*

    Me: “Excuse me!”

    Worker #1: “Yes, can I help you?”

    Me: “Can you point me in the direction of the maternity section?”

    Worker #2: “I’m so sorry; we don’t have a maternity section!”

    Worker #1: “We do have plus sizes though, right there.”

    Me: “Yeah… Maternity is NOT plus size.”

    Worker #1: “What’s the difference? If you’re getting huge, a bigger size should work anyways!”

    Worker #2: “We’re really sorry; we really DON’T have a maternity section.”

    Me: *to Worker #1* “Actually, there is a difference. Maternity clothes are longer in the front than the back, and are in the same size as pre-pregnancy.”

    Worker #1: “Well… we still don’t have it. So if you want clothes, just go to plus size!”

    Me: “Don’t EVER say that to a pregnant woman again.”

    (I begin to walk off, and as I’m moving away, I hear her talking to Worker #2:)

    Worker #1: “I don’t understand why she’s mad. What did I say?”

    Worker #2: “SERIOUSLY?”

    Coked Up On Misleading Facts

    | PA, USA | Coworkers, Food & Drink, Health & Body

    Coworker #1: “Hey, Coworker #2, do you want a Reeses’ cup?”

    Coworker #2: “No, those have sugar and eating too much sugar leads to diabetes! I don’t want to get diabetes.”

    Coworker #1: “And how much sugar is in the Coke you’re drinking?”

    Hard As Nails

    | USA | Bad Behavior, Employees, Health & Body

    (I am going to a new nail salon in the mall for a manicure. The nail technician is clipping away with nail clippers very fast, and cuts into my skin.)

    Me: “Ouch!”

    Nail Technician: “Sorry!” *keeps cutting rapidly into my skin, causing it to bleed*

    Me: “Ouch! OW!”

    Nail Technician: “Sorry!” *now uses a nail file on my cut and bleeding nail bed*

    Me: “Ow! Stop!” *snatches my hand away*

    Nail Technician: *annoyed* “I said sorry already! Beauty is pain, you know, so stop complaining!”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    (She says nothing else and finishes my manicure. I am dying to get out of there, and go up to pay. My poor fingernails are still bleeding and throbbing. She follows me.)

    Nail Technician: “You know, you should really wax off that mustache! We have good prices for waxing!”

    Me: *glare*

    (Needless to say, she didn’t get a tip, and I didn’t go back. Last I heard, it was made into a clothing store!)

    Has A Hand In Bad Management

    , | FL, USA | Bosses & Owners, Health & Body

    (A coworker has turned the temperature dial in my hot case all the way up to 10, when it’s supposed to be at 4.5. When I reach in to grab the metal tongs to serve a customer, my hand gets burned badly and I end up with blisters on my fingers. I go to a manager to find out where the first aid kit is.)

    Me: “Look at this. I got blisters all over my hand.”

    Manager: “Next time, use your other hand.”

    There Will Be Bloodwork

    | ON, Canada | Employees, Health & Body, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I have a severe aversion to getting bloodwork done. While I know it’s all in my head, I’ve managed to faint and have seizures several times. To make everyone’s life easier when I absolutely need bloodwork done, I make sure to tell whomever is doing it about the problem. USUALLY they find a way to work with me…)

    Me: *explains my problem with bloodwork* “It’d probably be best if I can lie down, if possible.”

    Male Nurse: “You’re a grown up. No one likes needles. You’ll be fine.”

    Me: “It’s more than that. I’ve had seizures…”

    Male Nurse: “Look, if anything happens, I’ll catch you. Okay?”

    Me: “Um… okay…”

    (Bloodwork begins. The next thing I remember is everything going black. I wake up on the floor.)

    Female Nurse: “Are you okay?!”

    Male Nurse: “She’s faking it. No one faints from having blood drawn! She just wanted to lie down. She even asked for a bed.”

    Female Nurse: “That’s WHY we have a bed.” *to me* “Sweetie, did you know this would happen?”

    Me: “I told him I’ve fainted and had seizures from bloodwork, and asked to lie down, so… Yes?”

    (Female Nurse helps me up, walks me to the room with a bed, and lies me down, leaving juice at the side table beside me. Once I’m okay to stand up again…)

    Female Nurse: “Do you want to try again?”

    Me: “Um… can you do it?”

    Female Nurse: “Sure. Don’t worry; he’s gone home for the day.”

    (I got my bloodwork done, lying down, and managed to not black out, though I still did get lightheaded. Thank you, nice lady nurse.)
