i am a woman with needs

Why ihate retail!

Let me tell you about my customer service experience today..
this woman, probably in her 40’s or 50’s walks up to my counter, ignoring my questions asking how she was doing and if she found everything okay. She then slaps her stuff down on the counter.
I start ringing her out and she’s like

“These are for Christmas.”

Now I kind of give a little chuckle because it’s not even October and this lady is buying Christmas presents.
She immediately says “Is something funny?!?” And I’m like.. oh…

“No ma'am, sorry.”

“DO YOU NEED TO MARK THESE??”

And I’m like ?? Mark them?
“I’m sorry, I don’t underst-”

“CAN I SPEAK TO YOUR MANAGER!”

And so I’m like uhhh yeah? And call Sam (my coordinator at the time) over. She then proceeds to ask Sam about marking the items so she can return them. Sam says that we can give her a gift receipt and that will be sufficient to return it.
Sam walks away and I explain that with a gift receipt it’s going to be store credit.

“THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!” Is the woman’s response.

So I’m like,
“Ma'am that’s store policy. That’s how it goes. Even with the original receipt, by time Christmas rolls around, we will only be able to give you store credit because we have a 30-day return policy.”
She grumbles to herself for a second and then says:

“Well I’m just going to come back in 30 days and return it and repurchase it. I’ll work the system I DONT CARE.”

I just look at her and give a slight nod. I finish ringing her items and she goes:
“WELL WHERE ARE MY GIFT RECEIPTS???”
“Oh.. sorry ma'am I must have misunderstood.”
I printed out her gift receipts and she walks, not responding to me telling her in a EXTRA nice tone to have a nice afternoon.

Please please please remember that when you’re acting crazy or do something like this to a cashier or anyone who serviceyou in any way,

1) you’re talking to a real human who cannot control the policies of the store and must abide by the rules set in place

2) You will be made fun of. We will go tell our friends, coworkers, parents, bosses, etc. We will tell the story over and over as a way to prove that customer service is HARD.

This woman in particular would have gotten what she wanted regardless of the way she acted. It was a simple request. It just shows that some people seemingly go out of their way to make those who service them miserable.

Sherlock: Honey?

Molly: What?

Sherlock: Where’s my coat?

Molly: What?

Sherlock: Where’s. My. Coat?!

Molly: I, uh, put it away.

Sherlock: Where?

Molly: Why do you need to know?

Sherlock: I need it.

Molly: Uh-uh! Don’t you think about running off doing no daring-do. We’ve been planning this dinner for two months!

Sherlock: The public is in danger!

Molly: My evening’s in danger!

Sherlock: You tell me where my suit is, woman! We are talking about the greater good!

Molly: ‘Greater good?’ I am your girlfriend! I’m the greatest you are ever gonna get!

OPTION C: who’s to say?

Night has closed in and Craig needs a place to sleep. The Jack Daniels has worn off, and his body is sore and cramped from sleeping on the park bench. He keeps walking until he comes upon a house and sees an old woman sitting outside on the steps; he decides to approach her because he’s tired, weak from hunger and desperate.

Craig: Excuse me ma’am, can you help me?

Hetty: Whatchu doing out here this late young man?

No resident of Appaloosa Plains would be caught dead this side of town at night.

Craig: I need help. I…I’m hungry. I haven’t eaten much of anything today. Could you spare some food?

Standing up Hetty assesses the stranger. She is a sucker for anyone down on their luck. He seemed harmless enough so she decides to invite him in.

Hetty: I’m Hetty. Don’t have much, but I can offer you a bowl a soup.  Come on in.

Craig: Ma’am I thank you. The name’s Craig.   🎃

Hey Bendy~ you are fa-fa-FABULOUS! In this dress ;) but you are not the only one that hates dress. And i'm a woman... Who am i kidding, i am kid ;-;

Bendy: I’m a goddamn MAN FOR FUCK SAKE. Do I need to get an approval by showing my D all the time?!!! Heck no. NOW STOP CROSSDRESSING ME ALL OF YOU.

anonymous asked:

Ok I need help. I'm nonbinary (female assigned at birth) . I am attracted to women exclusively. What does that make my sexuality?? Some people think I'm included in the lesbian community and some don't. I'm confused help

I can’t speak for the lesbian community on who is allowed to identify as a lesbian. But I do know that there are woman-aligned nb’s and demigirls who identify as lesbians.

There are also plenty of unaligned nb people who don’t identify with the gender binary or traditional sexuality labels. Plenty of new terms have been coined lately for nb people to use.

Nblw (nonbinary loving women) is one you could consider as well.

Which labels you identify with is up to you.

Today a customer at self-checkout was having trouble with her avocadoes and I came over and told her the machine needed her to input how many she had because we charge avocadoes by amount and not by weight. And this woman turned to me, angrier than a woman just buying some produce at 7 am should be and said “I SHOULDN’T BE EXPECTED TO KNOW HOW MANY THERE ARE”. Like I didn’t even have anything to say in response to that, I just sort of apologized and looked in her damn bag and typed in the amount for her.


She had two whole, entire avocadoes by the way.

I can see people’s auras… and it’s a curse.

Yes, I can see people’s auras.

And I hate saying it so bluntly. It makes me sound like some hack psychic who fakes the ability as a means of exploitation and a paycheck. I’ve never made money from my ability. I’ve never taken advantage of it. And, until now, I’ve never spoken of it to anybody.

But I really do see them, and I’m starting to view it as more of a curse. I have a reason for typing this out and I assure you, there isn’t a happy ending.

professor marston & the wonder women movie review

Yesterday night, I was very lucky (my bank account, not so much) to go to London to see Professor Marston & the Wonder Women, a movie which I’d been waiting for ever since Luke Evans was cast in it. The reviews were positive and my friend @johnsmoore had loved it after seeing it at TIFF, but despite my excitement (which had already increased after seeing Wonder Woman), part of me was still a little nervous, and I hoped the movie would make my trip 100% worth it.

It did.

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women is a love story. But not just any love story: it’s a love story about ‘unconventional’ people (as they say) but told with love, care and respect. If I hadn’t been so focused on trying not to noise my never ending feeling of satisfaction and gratefulness, I would have cried all the way through.

I didn’t cry, but I laughed a lot (it was so, so funny!), and I spent (almost) the whole movie smiling so hard I had to bite the inside of my cheek to remind myself to chill if I didn’t want my face to hurt by the time the movie was over. And this movie… it was pure and honest and beautiful and fun and so, so full of love.

Elizabeth is bold and hilarious and fierce. Olive is brave and soft and strong. William is good-hearted and passionate and determined. You’re gonna love that trio. You’re going to feel for them and hurt with them and fall in love with them at the same time they fall in love with each other. I know I did. The cast did a wonderful, wonderful job. Rebecca Hall was simply phenomenal. Luke Evans was full of strong gentleness. Bella Heathcote an example of strength and vulnerability combined.

Now, anyone who knows me a bit also knows sex scenes and I aren’t friends. At all. So when pretty much every review I read mentioned the sexual content, I started getting a little bit worried, because reviews don’t usually talk about that. Though they were reassuring, being anxious and a sex-indifferent bordering on sex-repulsed asexual, I needed the movie to reassure me. And it did. 

First of all, it was far from the explicit thing people seemed to promise. I’ve seen much, much more explicit sexual scenes. I’d almost say these were soft. But the point is… they were so, so well done. Sex wasn’t there just to show hot people making out for the sole purpose of having a useless sex scene. Here, sex was passionate and loving and fun! It was such a refreshing take on scenes that usually make me cringe because of how boringly all-the-same and seen through the male gaze and lacking actual feeling they too often are.

Then, you know how biopics can be nice but there’s always a moment when you wonder “okay it’s good and all but how far in are we now”? It’s not a thing here. The movie flows so well, and honestly too fast. When the end was near I was like, “what? already?” I didn’t see time go at all. I wished it would never end. And the penultimate scene! That scene was incredible. It was funny and sad and it will make you want to go on your knees and beg for things to be alright.

When the movie ended, I was an emotional wreck. I couldn’t believe what I’d just seen. A movie about bi women told by LGBTQ+ people? A movie where a woman being in love with another woman and three people loving each other equally is normal and filmed like any ‘classic’ movie romance usually is? A movie that shows a kinky poly and gay relationship in the most simple, positive, and respectful way? 

I’m so thankful this movie exists. I’m so thankful for the laughs and the moments of simple, precious domesticity, of the consent all throughout the story, of how healthy and beautiful it all was, even though it wasn’t always happy. And on a personal level and as a queer person myself, it meant so, so much to me to see my favourite actor in such a story. I have no words to say how much it means to me, but you can believe me when I say it made my heart burst with love for the movie even more than it already was.

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women is shining with love and there is no way you won’t want to give all yours back.

I think it’s important to have women in our mainstream entertainment whose beauty doesn’t lie in the way in which they were born. It’s about the choices that they make. As an actress, I find that interesting and exciting. The characters that I want to play are interesting women. I don’t care if they’re good women or bad women or vulnerable women or women with a lot of faults or women that we dislike intensely who are malicious. I am interested in looking at the female and I’m as interested in stripping all of that away and exploring it for, hopefully, years as I am interested in playing a woman that conforms to more traditional female norms and conventions of beauty. I think that, certainly in Britain, we’re feeling a real movement. I would chance saying globally there is a feeling that female empowerment has, at last, become a topic that is fashionable, and more power to that. You know, a million actresses have said, “There are so few female parts” and “We need to be stronger women!” I agree with all of that, but ultimately, I am just an actor in a show and if that entertains people then I’m thrilled. If it makes them think then I’m even more excited. — Gwendoline Christie

I am screaming. I didn’t know if I could pull off Kobayashi but here I am

Garrus: I thought you needed some time to… figure us out. Are you ready to be a one-turian kind of woman?

Shepard: the only thing that made leaving earth bearable was knowing you were out there somewhere

Garrus: I felt the same way. The worst part about the galaxy going to hell would’ve been never getting to see you again

Shepard: well here I am. Exactly where I want to be. I love you Garrus Vakarian

Me:
