made to order

2

It turns out I’ve been posting my art on the internet for a DECADE now (wow wow!) so I decided to dig way back in my deviantart for some old art to redraw. It was kind of fun but also a little embarrassing!!!

This is Jacob and Rick from a story I had made when I was 14 called Angelic Resonance. It’s a very long and tragic story, but at the same time I think it’s a little half-baked and needed a lot more research than I was able to put into it at the time haha. Here’s a folder with all of my drawings from 2009-2012 of them, if you care to take a look! U///U

Fuck customers, and bless customers

Today at the golden arches we had a man come in, claiming that his order had been made incorrectly at the drive-thru, and he had come inside so that we “hopefully wouldn’t fuck it up this time”. We made it again, exactly as it was printed on his receipt (which, oddly enough, was how it had been made the first time) because that was “how he wanted it”. He started screaming about how we were all morons and idiots, and we had made his order wrong twice. Well, sir, you were the one who said that it had been rung up correctly. He read his receipt to “prove us wrong” and then started screaming that we were overcharging him and he wanted a refund. Everyone was staring, because of course this happened during a rush, and even the people at the drive-thru were looking at this man in disbelief.

The manager gave him the refund and he demanded that we make his food for free. The manager began to explain that she couldn’t allow that and he continued to scream about how he “owned a fucking company”, “none of his employees were this fucking stupid”, and “he was going to get our asses fired”. At this point, three of the other customers stepped in, telling this guy to leave because he was being an asshole, and he started screaming at them too, telling them that we were useless and “couldn’t even get a single fucking order right”, claiming that he had 300 employees in his company and he came to order for them. Really? This guy had 3 meals and some value menu items, hardly enough for 300 people.

Eventually, after continuing to scream at my tiny manager, every single employee, (the girl on drive-thru came up front to help get orders out, and the grill team was visible from the counter) and most of the customers, this guy threatened to punch the manager and fight the customers standing up for her.

At this point, one of the grill members poked his head out and said he was calling the police. The guy turned to him and screamed “Call whoever the fuck you want! I don’t give a shit!” He stormed out after that, so obviously, sir, you did care. My manager went into the office after this and called the police to make sure that the man had actually left the property and wasn’t going to return. As soon as she hung up, she started to cry.

The three customers who had stood up for her waited by the counter for her to come out (she was only back there for less than a minute, her face was still red but she wouldn’t give herself more time because it was still busy) and they told her that she had handled the situation well and went to sit down. Even after the cop showed up and subsequently left because the man had gone, the three customers stayed in the lobby to make sure the guy didn’t return.

Honestly, if my manager decides to quit after this, I’m 100% behind her. This isn’t the first time that she’s been screamed at, but this is the first time it’s brought her to tears. And I have never, ever, heard a customer threaten to hit an employee here.

Welcome – an introduction

Marginalia Education Portal is a website that collects education resources making these more available to everyone that is interested.

Everything on the website is made by students who want others to grasp the material presented more easily than they did – by sharing the way in which they would have wanted the material presented to them in the first place.

The website consists of:

  • Notes taken by students – in other words: How they understand the material best.
  • Guides made by students in order to help the readers go through the same as they did more easily.
  • Information useful to those who want to study abroad.
  • A blog where different topics are discussed in order to gain new perspectives on the topics.
  • Other resources that might be helpful – e.g. books, websites etc.

Marginalia is built upon a concept that includes a mission, a vision, values and objectives (read about them here)


We are also determined to build a positive community on social media and we think that the studyblr community is the right community to reach out to and join.

All of the options for made to order Mandrake Roots!

I’m keeping it fairly simple for the first batch - I don’t want to drive myself crazy with lots of customization! That being said, I will be making more options and some of the limited edition mandrakes available later on - like the Valentines Roots, Lunar Mandrake Roots, and maybe even the Celestials.

The first batch of made to order Mandrake Roots will be in the familiar shop Wednesday the 15th at 8pm EST //  $60 each

Customization posts for Mothmen and Teacup Demons will be up tomorrow!

Thanks for looking, and happy hunting!
