kc series: until kingdom come: (rough edit teaser)

My favorite part of working customer service is when customers don’t treat you like a person, and not even in the way of “oh wow, you’re a rude asshole who yelled at me for ten minutes,” but like “oh I spoke to you and you didn’t look at me, I asked it I could help you and you pretended you couldn’t hear me, I said hello and you resolutely avoided eye contact” and there’s just that realization on your part that you are not a person to them at all, you are a mascot of capitalism to be dodged, and if you exist in their minds, it’s only to note how much they don’t want to interact with you
