I admit, i'm guilty of torturing my customers sometimes. For a guy to walk into a home improvement store, like the one i work in, and admit he needs help with a project is difficult for some guys. It's rather De-masculating. So i ask lots of technical questions in a very matter-of-factly tone of voice just to make sure he says ' I don't know' as often as possible, even when i know the answer and i know he doesn't. Then i usualy give a slightly surprised look when he says it, just to make him feel stupid. Sometimes I make them grovel a little for help with larger oblects, or better yet if they ask for help lifting or moving somthing i just do it myself, especially if thier wife/girlfriend is present. It's quite fun actually....juvenille, but still fun.

As a person who actually goes to this WaWa it doesn't surprise me at all. Ok I understand your underpaid and have to deal with the idiot general public but to be such a f#ckin moron in public in absurd!

It seems to me that your day would have been a lot less aggravating if you didn't smoke. It's bad for ya anyway. So is lack of sleep, and since I have to get up for work in two hours, who am I to talk? Getting my ass back to bed now. And yeah, employees suck too, especially my co-workers.

Good point, too. Double whammy...short- and long-term, and I put myself right into it!
