Note! Unlike the others, these ones are NOT edible nor should they be ingested! These potions are for anointing or bath magic.
None of these potions are made with the crystals in the water! I ALWAYS put my crystals around a jar or cup of water to charge over night. SOME OF THESE CRYSTALS SHOULD NEVER GO IN WATER!!! So please just place them around your jar of water over night, not in it.
Okay so this just happened today (24/4) and I’m still laughing.
So I work in a place that has a print department. Sometimes someone gets something done in that department and then wants to continue shopping, so the person working there will print out a quote for them to give to the cashier later so they pay for the whole lot at once.
An older lady came up to the register with a quote, a packet of photos she’d had printed, and a couple other items. She says ‘everything’s been scanned on this quote’. I’m used to people saying something similar when they come up with a quote, so I scan it and then ask, gesturing to her other items, ‘and you’re getting these as well?’. I start scanning them because I assume I already know the answer, I’m just chatting to be friendly, when she says, 'no, they’re all already scanned.’
So I’m vaguely confused, and I look at the quote closely. It turns out that whoever served her at the print department quoted her for the photos and the other items all together, which isn’t wrong or bad, just weird and confusing. I say, 'oh, sorry!’ and take off the extra stuff I’d just scanned. In a very cheerful, passive aggressive voice, that patronising kind of voice that makes it clear that you’re an idiot, the lady says, 'I did tell you, but you weren’t listening.’
I immediately fell silent and spoke very little through the rest of the transaction because I was in shock. That tone was totally uncalled for and ridiculous. I made a mistake? One that was easily fixed? And a mistake that was to be expected with the way we usually do our quotes? I probably could have explained it to her, but I was honestly so mad that she felt the need to comment that I didn’t want to say anything other than what I had to.
But it’s been a while now and I’m just laughing at how needlessly nasty she was. Especially when I got praised at the end of the day for my consistency and care in greeting customers.
