store is open

TalesFromRetail: I'm going to tell everyone to boycott you!

I can’t believe I almost forgot this one! This week is whipping me out. This will be short because it’s mostly what I heard from my coworker.

So she was telling me of a lady who was complaining because one of our doors was locked. We have doors on both sides of our store and our opening manager unlocked one side but forgot to unlock the other. This lady walked up and the door didn’t open. She claims that one of our coworkers saw her and just walked away. The lady wasn’t able to say which one though. (And even if that was true they may have been looking for someone with keys since only two people currently in the store have keys)

Lady continued to tell coworker about how she’s going to boycott us and tell all her friends not to shop at (store name) in (city). She also says how she’s already been boycotting (same store name) in (next town over).

She complained to one of the managers who did apologize about what happened but people are human and makes mistakes.

Apparently as angry as this lady was she wasn’t too angry to buy her stuff.

Really hope she takes her boycott serious. Bye!

Hey guys! My tictail store has been renamed and will be re-opening pre-orders for some brand new keychains! :D

There will be options to buy these individually AND/OR as a fullset.

Please note these are pre-orders. Orders won’t be shipped until Mid-Late April. If stock arrives before its expected date, I will ship them out early-mid April instead! n_n

The store will open tomorrow (Saturday 11th) at 5PM EST (10PM GMT) and Pre-Orders will close March 25th.

What are some of the biggest lies you hear from your customers?

•They did it for me last time.
•I’m never coming back.
•I’ve been shopping here 10 years. (Stores been open 3)

Let’s see how many you can add to the list.

EXO: late night adventures

Xiumin: 

-  so he’d text you in the middle of the night bc he can’t sleep, and practically drags you out of your bed to go to the grocery store that’s opened 24/7
-  and he’s like babe…ilysm idk how you can stand me and my randomness but I really couldn’t sleep bc I kept thinking about you and tbh I was coming over anyway and I just needed an excuse
-  so now you’re drinking your third slushy and he’s talking about getting married and traveling the world with you
-  whenever you’d scoff at his wild suggestions, he’d move closer to you on the pavement and put his arm around you
-  "I’m serious. Then I wouldn’t have to take like 3 busses just to come over to your place, and we can finally have our own slushy machine to make them at 1 in the morning, jagi"

-  he was working late in the studio one night and asked you not to wait up for him, but you thought you’d surprise him (low key you just wanted to watch him dance)
-  so after hugging you for an hour, he leads you to one of their studios since there’s no one there at this late hour, and shows you this new track they’ve been working on
-  and he’s so mesmerized by your expression and smile, and the way you’re nodding your head to the beat
-  and he’s thinking ‘why don’t I invite her to the studio more often??? …oh yeah bc I’ve got those flock of puppies to look after’
-  after spending some hours goofing off and making diss tracks about each other, he saves it onto a flash drive and sleepily heads home with you

-  Yixing had just come back from a long schedule in China, and he’s so happy to finally be back in your arms and your shared apartment
-  neither of you could sleep, despite the late hour, so he suggests taking you to this place he discovered while out with the boys one day
-  it’s an abandoned building, where you both sat on the roof and stared at the night sky of the city
-  he’d smile in awe as you yawn and lean your head on his shoulder, but you two would keep talking until there’s nothing left to talk about
-  he’d protectively wrap his arms around you when the sun started to rise, and whispers to you that he wants to come here every night from now on (sike, it’s too cold yixing, you’re lucky I love you)

Baekhyun:

-  you’d just finished watching a midnight viewing of this new movie, and both of you were now standing outside the theater, with baekhyun’s lips lazily tracing your jaw and neck 

-  "y/n, what do you say we go back inside and watch another movie?“ He asks mischievously. “Didn’t you say you spent your last dollar on those twizzlers???”
-  and he’s like “well, I said nothing about paying for our tickets. Let’s go.” Lmao he’d drag you back inside and tries to act nonchalant
-  you’d pretend to be looking at the schedules for the movies and avoid all the workers until you get close enough to the entrance near the ticket line
-  he’s like an actual puppy and he’s holding your hand while running over to the nearest movie playing. It just so happened to be the same movie you just watched…nice going

Chen:

-  he wouldn’t do anything too wild, probably suggest a karaoke match-off when you tell him that you can’t sleep, and this is great bc he can’t focus on his work either 

-  so this is a much needed break. Plus, it’s a chance to show off his vocal skills and have you rolling your eyes
-  pulls you in his arms during duets and stares into your eyes and he’s basically serenading you
-  might take it too seriously and go full *exo chen* mode, with the dance routines and everything
-  and although he’s mostly playing their songs now, you can’t help but to sing badly along with his angelic voice and you finally understand why opposites attract

Chanyeol:

-  he takes you out to an amusement park and you two would spend the whole day together, not realizing that it’s REALLY late now but neither of you wanna go home 

-  so since they’re gonna be open all day and all night, might as well make it a night to remember
-  you’d ride the ferris wheel so many times, to the point of the vendor just going “look, there’s literally no one here but you so idc, yall can go on it as much as you like, just press this button and wake me up when you’re done”
-  he’d be pointing at the random buildings in the city and claim that’s your apartment, that’s where you’re gonna live next, and that’s where you’re gonna have your kids playing in the backyard
-  ofc with his arms wrapped around you, he’d keep whispering cheesy stuff in your ear and kissing you every now and then

D.O.:

-  not the type to do this often, but he sees you’re really stressing over your work and offers to take a walk with you around the area 

-  he’s loving the fact that no one’s awake at this hour, and it’s just you two walking peacefully, hand in hand
-  would get butterflies in his stomach when you shiver and move even closer next to him, then he’d offer his jacket and wrap it tightly around you, all while scolding you for not bringing one
-  he’d suggest stopping at a local ice cream shop and buys you your favorite flavor
-  when you try and mess with him by placing some on his nose, you better run bc you’re about to be attacked with tickles and kisses

Kai:

-  late night adventures are a constant thing in your relationship and you couldn’t live without them, esp when he’s always suggesting random places to visit in the middle of the night, like the park near your place
-  you’d be childishly playing on the swings as he loudly cheers you on from the top of the slide
-  having dance battles in the sandpit, and flicking sand on him to mess him up (nice try, he can’t mess up even if he tries)
-  once you’ve settled down and sat on the benches, you’d cuddle into him as he quietly talks about his childhood and how he always used to come to the park and mess around
-  then ruin the moment by randomly giggling at some random memory he had and now he can’t stop slapping your knee and wheezing

Sehun:

-  he’d be hella sassy and tell you to bother someone else since you can’t sleep. Then he’d be like aw I took it too far, she just wants to hang out with me
-  so he’d be like alright, let’s go to the beach, jagi, bc what could go wrong this late at night? So you’d happily walk over to the beach near your shared place, and he’d immediately proceed to take off his shirt and dive into the freezing water
-  you’d take out your phone and take hella pictures of his dorky self, and threaten to post them if he doesn’t stop and come sit next to you
-  after trying aegyo and failing, he’d dry off and use your body head to warm him up bc he was too dumb to bring a change of clothes
-  it would be really peaceful, sitting closely to him and listening to the sound of the calming waves and the complaints of your freezing boyfriend

Påskveckan - Easter week 

Swedish kids are free from school the week of, or the week after easter. In earlier days, all the stores used to be closed on good Friday but now most of the stores are open as usual but are closed during the easter weekend. It’s most common to do the actual celebration on Easter Eve, we usually meet with the family and eat together. (As you may know, Sweden is a very irreligious country so it’s very uncommon to go to church during Easter)

Påskkärring - Easter witch

Swedish kids usually dress up as witches (påskkärringar) on Maundy Thursday or Easter Eve and go around to their neighbors giving them a small hand-made card or present to get some candy in return. This tradition has its roots in the witch huntings during the 1600′s when it was believed the witches travelled to Satan at Blockula to feast on Maundy Thursday. The modern tradition stems from the 1800′s. The children are often dressed up in a dress, an apron and a shawl and may also have a black stuffed toy cat, a broom and a coffee pot.

Godis och mat - Candy and food

Candy and food is a big part of the Swedish easter tradition. The kids (and sometimes the adults) usually get an easter egg filled with candy and maybe a small gift or money. Here the Swedish phenomenon of bulk confectionary comes in handy because the parents can pick and choose the quantity of candy they think their child should eat. It’s said to be the easter bunny who comes with the eggs. For the food there is often a big buffet or smorgasbord of things to choose from. Some classics are boiled eggs, fermented herring, salmon and boiled potatoes. (Very similar to the food we eat on every Swedish holiday) For drinks there are the alcoholic brännvin and snaps and for the kids there’s påskmust which is a carbonated drink kinda similar to coke (but also not at all, because it’s so much better. Also there’s julmust during Christmas which is exactly the same thing but with a different branding).

Dekorationer - Decorations

How much you decorate for easter varies from family to family but we decorate less than for Christmas. We usually have something similar to an easter tree which basically is a few branches of birch which gets decorated with colorful feathers and decorations in the shape of chickens, eggs and easter witches. The decorations are mostly yellow or pastel and it’s very usual for small children to make their own easter decorations in kindergarden or primary school to hang in the easter tree.
