Mercury has been in retrograde!
It's been a day like this.
A well regarded coworker found another job in retail that pays better than the Beef House and Strip Club. I will miss her because she was the type of person you want to work with. Great ethics, a black sense of humor, and she brought out the best in her coworkers - these just don't fall off the tree with every application. So not only are we short handed, but one of the regular came in and asked for said co-worker, and when told that said employee was no longer with us, Customer launched on another coworker who was trying very hard to help said Customer.
It was ugly. People literally stopped what they doing and listened at the rant.
So a couple of us stepped up to back this co-worker up, get this person quieted down and out of the store ASAP.
Later in the day the husband of the crazy bitch came to the store and spoke with the Manager. The husband explained that the wife was going through a rough bout of menopause and she just felt "horrible". The manager listened, and told about the apology one by one.
"She going through the change of life," says Manager.
Well what the Hell is she changing into? A Harpy?
"Mehbee," said Manager, "she no want to take the hor-monays."
My mother used to say that Menopause is like "riding a wild bucking bronco to Hell for some women."
So riding that wild bucking bronco to Hell during Mercury's retrograde phase must be some kind of special trip.
