Yeah, he's generally only staying there due to the benefits they get. The pay isn't fantastic to start (and he negotiated it higher since he's a licensed mechanic), but it's more than he made at his last job.

Oh lordy. The customer stories Brando comes home with.

He works at a very small computer repair shop. I'll leave you with that and let your mind go wild.


One time they got a huge cockroach infestation because someone brought in their computer tower and when they opened it up it was completely infested with cockroaches.

About a month ago some guy was claiming he didn't know how to view the images on his flashdrive (but apparently he knew how to get them ON the flashdrive as well as name them) and made Brandon pull it up to show him. On the particular kind of OS the man had when you plug in the flashdrive the images always display in thumbnail form and when it opened up all the images where of the customer naked and holding his dick with image titles like "Big dick for my wife".

That's not even the worst of it. Well. The dick guy was up there that's for sure.

When he first started working Boyfriend was going through the notes made on certain customers that are kept in the computer system (they will actually make notes "person was a dick, do not give favors or discounts" and stuff like "customer was super cool, gave small discount" so other employees know who's a dickface)and found one note that read;

Customer urinated on front door, banned from store.

Apparently some lady didn't appreciate the awesome discounts at the store and took a pee on their front door. I guess she had good aim.

Wow. .___.

I play mom/teacher at a daycare all day. But my daycare is tiny and one room with 30 kids, so it's loud all the time.
It's not even the kids that can be the really awful ones, it's the parents that know better.
My favorite thing is when a kid has really bad behavior issues and we offer the parents free resources and the parent doesn't do a thing. And then they look at us and say, "Why is my kid still doing this?" or "I'm not happy that you haven't worked with so-and-so, he's still misbehaving."
Sorry for doing everything we possibly can in an environment where we don't have constant one-on-one time and we can't come home with you to be their nanny and teach them right and wrong.

I can't even fathom people like that! Dx

.....ew. (And I'm reminded of "Creepy guy" from the dance school. I think I mentioned him before- he was very creepily/almost obsessively watching the dance classes, including the LITTLE girls as well as the grownup women, at the front window, annnd one time took a whiz on it. DURING a class.)

Wow that guy's a fuckin' creeper. I do remember you mentioning it before, but can't remember if anything was done about it? I imagine that parents would have complained about him?

Eh, he just disappeared. Every time the cops got called on him he'd run off before they could catch him. And then he just never came back again. (And yeah, Ebon- our dance teacher/school head- was not happy about the guy. Especially when he came in one time to ask if there were any dance classes starting soon. He got a "No, not until much later today", no time given, as a response and then creepy guy left. And then he kept the big curtains shut for the evening.)

We've had similar things. A lady once showed up in a skirt and left us steaming turd when she walked away. That's the caliber of people we deal with on a daily basis. I remember my uncle telling me about this stuff when I was younger and just thinking he was a racist, making this shit up. But after working a counter for 2 years, I've seen everything he mentioned and more.

I hope he didn't scare the kids.

I'm guessing he did. But most of the little kid classes are on Saturdays and afternoons whereas adult classes are in the evening (and drop-ins at noon), so I never found out for myself.

I think I'm destined to never have decent counter space. Curse you old New England houses and your awkwardly laid out kitchens! I also can only reach the bottom shelf of our cabinates.

I just want to be able to have a place to cook where I don't have to climb on the tiny counters to reach my supplies! Is that so much to ask?!

These stories make the customers who put trash behind product on shelves sound like angels.
