How to Not Be a Shitty Customer

1. Understand that we’ve been on our feet all day and probably dealing with shitty customers and bullies since we clocked in. Most of us as students trying to make extra money, and we’re stressed enough as it is without shitty customers making us feel like we fell out of a dog’s ass.

2. Say hello. We’re not servants. We’re people, and we like to be respected. Don’t just throw your shit on the counter and expect complete servitude.

3. Don’t come to us when you’re talking on the phone. That’s the height of rudeness.

4. If you’ve made a reservation or a booking, don’t tell me your phone died, or you lost the letter or email, or give some other excuse which is going to make it impossible to complete your order. If we sent you information on your order, write it down.

5. If you want to complain, do not complain to the person on the till/shop floor/bar/tables. 99% of the time, the fuck-up was caused by a failed delivery, a system error, a stock error or a similar diablos ex machina in the narrative that is retail, and we can’t do anything about it.

6. If we DO fuck up, and it’s easily fixed, LET US FIX IT. Don’t start insulting someone because we forgot one item or some other asinine bullshit that can be fixed in a few minutes.

7. Don’t ask for the manager. Ever. Unless I’m being rude or offensive, don’t ask for the manager. This is peak dickhead behaviour. You ESPECIALLY do not ask for the manager if YOU were being difficult or rude in the first place and I was reacting in my defence (i.e., not letting you walk all over me), or if I’m not performing my job to “your standard”.

8a. If you’re a customer at an establishment where leaving a tip is optional, leave a tip.

8b. If the employee tells you we can’t accept tips, don’t try and force a tip on us. It will fuck up our till and the manager will shout at us because it will be assumed that we stole from the customer, or we didn’t give a customer the right change.

9. Not everyone who works here is fully 100% trained. People come and go every few months in retail and we’re not all at the same level of training. So don’t get pissed off when the new guy doesn’t come zooming out of the stock room with your 11-item order and twelve coupons.

10. If I’m on my break, I’m on my break. End of discussion.

11. We’re only going to be well-mannered if you are. You’re not above us.

12. And on that note, you’re not above other customers as well. There’s a line for a reason. Wait in it.

13. And if you see me on the shop floor and ask me to put through an order for you because you don’t want to wait in the line, you’re the worst.

14. Don’t try to “bond” with me by making fun of other customers I’ve been serving.

15. Don’t say “I can see the item behind you!” if I tell you we have zero in stock. There’s so many different reasons why we might not be able to sell it, including reservations, stock adjustments, recalls, display, or just because the item is unavailable for sale until a certain date.

16. If I say we can’t do something, we can’t do it. No amount of harassing me or my manager will do anything to change that.

17. Complaining that you’ve been waiting for a long time in the store won’t change anything either. We’re busy, we’re working hard, and we’re trying our best to get you in and out of the store as fast as we can.

18. If you snitch on one of my coworkers, I literally won’t give a shit. We’re all together, even the people who hate each other.

19. You have to wait. It’s part of shopping. You wait in line, you wait your turn, you wait for your card to be accepted, you wait for your change, you wait for your item being scanned, you wait for your food/drink/item being brought out, and you wait when I have to walk across the store to help you. Don’t be rude when your order isn’t complete within seconds because it’s entirely unfeasible.

20. Don’t be sleazy to my female coworkers. They’re not interested in you, and they weren’t interested in the five married men who hit on them before you.

21. If it’s out of stock, it’s out of stock. If the store allows you to order in, we can order it in. If the store makes it available for delivery, we can have it delivered. But nothing we can do will make your item appear in the store for you to take home right now, so don’t be difficult.

22. Don’t come in as soon as the store opens or as the store is closing. Honestly. Every single person in the store hates you. We’re exhausted, we aren’t getting paid for the extra minutes we have to serve you, and we want to go home. This is the biggest dick move you can pull as a customer, apart from screaming and asking for the manager.

23. Don’t be rude when we suggest a store card/special offer/product insurance policy. We have to offer this to everyone or we get yelled at. Just wait until we’re done talking so our managers can hear that we’re offering it, then politely decline. We don’t want to sell overpriced shit that will get you into debt, and we know you don’t want it, but managers still force our hand.

24. “If it doesn’t scan that means I get it for free hahaha” We have heard this joke literally more times than we can count so please stop.

25. “It says it’s cheaper on the shelf over there.” Okay, BUT - the tills reflect the current price of the item, and customers LITERALLY come in and switch price tags around so they can cause trouble and get shit for cheaper than they should, which gets US into trouble because our tills don’t have the right amount in them. If there’s an offer or a deal on at the time of purchase and we haven’t changed the price tags, then by all means let us know. But if there’s an obviously easily removed price tag on an item and you’re trying to get it for cheaper, chances are, you’re not getting it for that price.

26. Don’t come into the store with 50 gift vouchers or coupons and don’t try and use some complicated wireless payment if we don’t accept it.

27. I personally work in a store with over 20,000 items in stock. It’s basically a warehouse with tills. I don’t know jack shit about anything we sell other than games and computers. So don’t shout at me when I don’t know if the snooker table you’ve ordered is collapsable or not. No, I shouldn’t “have to know this stuff” because it’s literally impossible for any human being to know the specifics of thousands of products.

28. Clean up after yourself. Don’t leave milkshake cups and crumbs all over the store, because the people who have to clean that shit is US, and it’s NOT in our job description, but we’re made to do it anyway.

29. Don’t shop while you’re drunk or high. I shouldn’t even have to say this but for fuck sake it needs to be said, apparently.

30. Don’t vape in my face when I’m serving you. I have an e-cigarette too, which I use heavily because I’m so stressed out from working in fucking retail, and if I can wait five hours for my break to use it, you can wait five minutes to use yours.

31. I’m so sorry because this one is total bullshit but please don’t bring your dog into the store if you can. WE get shouted at because our managers are the ones who don’t want them in the store, and WE are the ones expected to be total dicks to dog owners.

32. Don’t complain to me if someone brought a crying baby into the store. Don’t complain to them either. Babies cry. That’s what they do. They cry when they’re hungry, tired, sick, dirty or scared. And babies scare easily. It’s not easy being a parent of a baby so cut them slack and don’t cause a damn scene over it.

33. This goes for disabled customers, customers who use mobility scooters, and senior customers with walking canes or Zimmer frames. They’ll take as long as they need and you wait your damn turn. This should go without saying too, but I’ve had customers complain to ME about how we’re “too slow” because the customer before them was using a mobility/support device of some kind. That’s none of your fucking business and it’s NOT something you have the right to complain about.

34. If you’re shopping in a store with displays that are easily messed up (like clothes), don’t just mess it up and leave it there. If you’re taking a shirt out, fold it at least SOMEWHAT neatly before you put it back. And if you can’t, let us know so we can keep the place tidy.

35. Stop giving prank names to baristas. They don’t give a shit. None of us give a shit. It’s not funny.

36. Bring your cups/trays back to the counter/disposal area otherwise mama didn’t raise you right.

37. If your coupon is expired. It’s expired. We can’t turn back time.

38. Nor can we teleport, so if your coupon’s at home, there’s nothing we can do about that either.

39. You need to understand that employees in retail get monitored on everything we do, INCLUDING how much money is in our till compared to the price of every item we sell through that till. So no, we can’t just “knock” 10% off for your inconvenience in the store, we can’t “take the price of the coupon off” because you left it at home, we can’t “just give you” a refund without a receipt even though you “swear you bought it here”, and we can’t “just change the price” of an item because you “think it’s too expensive”. If the store does price matches against similar stores, or if the store has a price promise for items reserved at a cheaper price, then yes, we will change the price for you. But don’t kick up a fuss because you think iPhone chargers are overpriced. They totally are. But that’s not in my control.

40. No, I don’t want the 99.

41. Don’t talk to us like we’re robots. “Good morning. I would like to purchase two items today please.” No offense but what the fuck is that? Why do people talk like this to cashiers? “Hey what’s up, can I buy this book and a stapler?” is totally fine. In fact, it’s preferred. Talk to us like you’d talk to literally any other human being on the planet.

42.. The customer isn’t “always right” and I wanna fight the fucker that came up with this ridiculous egotistical mantra.

Mercury Signs

Mercury is the planet of thought and communication, the mind and our cerebral qualities. It is known as fast moving, a trickster and for being witty.

Mercury in Aries- Infuses Mercury with a bold and brash communication style bordering on authoritative. Often makes thinking go through black and white categories, yet is also known for their childlike imagination. Thoughts erupt like missiles. Can have racing thoughts.

Mercury in Taurus- Slows Mercury down, makes it methodical, efficient and attached to their own point of view. Can also infuse it with poetry and creativity in the way they think. Can lead to anxious or cyclic thinking. Memories last a lifetime here, and they can be retrospective.

Mercury in Gemini- Mercury rules Gemini, often emphasising the Mercurial traits with this placement, therefore Mercury is witty, fast paced and changeable here. May like wordplay and puzzles. Will find their curiosity peaked by many differing subjects.

Mercury in Cancer- Capable of wonderful emotional intelligence and can be talented with both creativity and more traditionally logical based subjects like finance for example. Their mind work like a mood board, changing thought patterns depending on what is in their field of experience.

Mercury in Leo- Bold thought patterns and often takes pride on their sense of belief and self. Likely communicates with style and authority, but also has a very justice orientated mind, where fairness is put to the front and center. 

Mercury in Virgo- Mercury also rules Virgo, making them adept to detail orientated thoughts that can be perfectionistic. They are often good with puzzles, can flourish in fields of science, yet their attention to detail can also lead to wonderful creativity. Anxious thoughts are a possibility. 

Mercury in Libra- Mercury has the ability to unite two opposing ideas in Libra, where the pros and cons of everything are weighed carefully. They may have interests to do with society and people as a whole, psychology, sociology, but are also likely fond of “pleasing” and harmony inducing arts.

Mercury in Scorpio- Infuses Mercury with a detective quality, diving deep into taboos, secrets and subjects that many would shy away from. They can have obsessive thoughts and can often intuitively know the intent of the people around them. Can be immensely passionate about their interests.

Mercury in Sagittarius- Has a mind like a flying carpet, soaring to great heights when it comes to asking questions of the universe. Science, philosophy, the social sciences could all be potential interests, and when they gain knowledge, they are unlikely to shy way from sharing it. Each thought can feel like a jewel.

Mercury in Capricorn- Makes Mercury methodical, practical and efficient, moving like cogs and wheels. When they set their sites on something, they effectively plan ahead to achieve their goals. They like to ground the often flighty Mercury, although an interest in the written word and language is not uncommon.

Mercury in Aquarius- Mercury is inventive, innovative and forward thinking in Aquarius, where old thought patterns and systems will likely be rejected. They can have bouts of chaotic and eccentric thinking, where even in the middle of the night they are up thinking about the weird and wonderful subjects of the world. Will receive lighting bolts of insight.

Mercury in Pisces- Thoughts aren’t structured and separate here, but can all blend into one like a vague wash of colour. They are more likely to doodle their dreams on their maths book than do sums, but are capable of the most wonderful abstract and imaginative thinking, often leading to a different sort of intelligence.

We all know How whipped Jeon is, but what about Jimin? Isn't he like that to all members? The loving eyes, the silly smiles? What makes jimin interections with jungkook special?

Sure Jimin’s a sweetheart spreading love all across the globe. But when it comes to Jungkook, Jimin’s love reaches a whole new level of unreachable heights we mere mortals can’t even dream about. His special kinda love is reserved for his special Kookie and it’s clearly noticeable…

Jimin got Jungkook whipped for him and he fuckin’ knows it and fuckin’ loves it! And I bet my sorry trashy life on it that he doesn’t do any of this with anybody else.

tl;dr

Jimin wants Jungkook to be his bride as much as Jungkook wants Jimin to be his. Rumor has it that they’re already married and just returned from their honeymoon in Hawaii.

I just adore your art style, it's so cute! I'm thinking of making comics myself. Do you think you could give me some tips on angling or facial expressions or overall detail?

Thank you so so much! I really appreciate that! Like, a whole lot. ^^

I’m not exactly sure how much I’ll be able to help you, though I can at least give you some pointers on expressions! I’ll do my best. I’m sorry this is coming a bit late! 

I’m going to use Bendy for my examples, just because he’s super easy to draw and I have him on hand/mind at the moment. But! These can be used on just about anyone.

Keep in mind: this is just my way of doing things. There isn’t one “set” way to create great art! There’s a lot of experimenting, testing and growing when it comes to artwork.

When it comes down to expressions, there are a few things to consider: what are they feeling? How intense is this feeling? How far can, or should you push it? How can you make this feel realistic? In visual storytelling, showing what a character is going through is far more important than telling the reader. In a comic setting, there’s a very fine balance–since you have images to go with the words, but you can’t convey each minute action… At least in a reasonable amount of panels, the dialogue and the images have to work together when they’re used in tandem.

When a character is shouting, you have to push their expression further–it won’t be enough to show them with their mouth slightly open, or with a flat face. Give them wide eyes, or shut their eyes completely with frustration. Open their mouth wide, maybe even get their body language involved if you have enough room. Throw their arms in the air, have them pulling at their hair!

Likewise, if what they’re saying is quiet or somber, soften their expression. Have their gaze ill-focused, or looking to the ground. Their shoulders could be slumped, their brow could be low. Their mouth could be almost, or entirely closed. Or are they happy? Raise their eyebrows, widen their eyes with joy! Bring out that smile! Use as much variety and as many shapes as you can!

Because I’m a visual person, here are a few examples to give you a better idea of what I mean:

(I’m sorry if my handwriting is hard to read)

Which facial expressions are more interesting? Sure, the ones on the left are going through the motions of emoting, but the ones to the right REALLY show how the character is feeling!

Body language is also immensely important when it comes down to expressiveness. Every part of the body can be used to convey a message. The crossing of arms can indicate disgust, or even put a small barrier between two people. Slumped shoulders show disappointment or sadness. Every little movement a character makes can have a massive impact on their overall tone. Here are a few examples like the above:

Even minute changes to a static pose can make a BIG difference! Test around and see what works best.

I’ve noticed that some animators have mirrors near their desk. This is so they can look up at their reflection and make a face into the mirror. They project their character’s feelings onto themselves, that way they can see what sort of facial expression would be best suited to that emotion. Nowadays we can just google this, but it’s still a good idea. Don’t be afraid to look up references whenever you need them. I know I do frequently! There’s no shame in using references!

My friend linked me to this wonderful guide, which goes more in-depth than I did here. Take a look!

I’m sorry I can’t help you quite as much with angles. I feel that I’d need to do a little more research in order to be able to articulate this more fluently. Perhaps some other time I can try and revisit this and go more into depth about perspective and foreshortening, but for now, here’s another great guide that might help you along in the right direction. I use a similar structure for my own drawings! 

Speaking of foreshortening, here’s another tutorial! I don’t use this particular method, but it may work for you!

I know you didn’t ask for it, but I’d like to give you some tips about comic making. If you don’t want them, then I guess you can just stop reading, pfff. Either way I’ll put it under a cut so this post doesn’t take up so much of the dashboard.

One of my favorite things in the whole Metroid series is Fake Kraid from Super Metroid

In the first game, Kraid was pretty much equal to Samus in height, so when you come across Fake Kraid (who is also as tall as Samus) you’re like “oh fuck guess thats kraid” and you kill him in like four seconds

And just as you’re feeling satisfied for beating him so quick you get to the next screen and find REAL Kraid and hes just the biggest, angriest motherfucker alive

Super Metroid is so goddamn good

Once Upon a Time: Meet the New Cast

(Part 1: New cast)

Once Upon a Time’s New and Returning Faces

The ABC fairy tale drama is undergoing a major reboot heading into its seventh season. To keep track of the new and returning characters, EW turned to executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis to get the scoop.

Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle)

Details about the trio of returning stars are being kept under wraps, particularly when it comes to Rumplestiltskin — his Hyperion Heights counterpart has been described as “menacing,” but we won’t find out his name until the premiere. “We warned you season 1 he was a difficult man to love, but at the same time, he did find true love last year and choose love over power, so we don’t know what we’ll be looking at,” Kitsis says coyly. “I would hope that the growth and everything he fought for wouldn’t be erased. But as we know, that’s the day-to-day fight.” To note: Both Emilie de Ravin and Giles Matthey will return as Belle and their son Gideon, respectively, in the Rumple-centric fourth episode.

Regina (Lana Parrilla)

When Henry finds himself in trouble, he calls out to his family for help and Regina comes running. But that’s also why she ends up in a cursed Hyperion Heights as a denim-clad bartender named Roni. “Roni is Regina with the wisdom of six years of the show,” Horowitz says. “She is a tough character, she’s a bartender, she is sticking up for the little people in the neighborhood against the bully who we’ll realize is Lady Tremaine. At the same respect, all the experiences she’s had going from Evil Queen to Queen [have led to] a mature character.”

Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue)

The one-armed pirate also comes running to help Henry, though we’ll find a very different Hook in Hyperion Heights, a despondent cop named Rogers — no, his name is not Polly Rogers, as some internet rumors have indicated. “He is a cop with a very specific mission and a case that has haunted him that he has not solved, and that will be what we’ll be teasing out in the first couple episodes,” Horowitz says. However, Kitsis adds: “He’s a good cop [with] a plate filled with temptation.”

What Emo Fandoms Want To Know

FOB: What is the song bc I cant understand pantrick and I don’t know what the song is *sweats*

P!ATD: What band member Brendon? *plays northern downpour*

MCR: When are you coming back, sersiouly? *cries in emo*

TØP: What’s Josh’s height? What’s his next hair colour?

totally relatable everyday things the signs remind me of

aries: getting unreasonably turnt when a song comes on, seeing someone who is the same height as you & thinking you could take ‘em if necessary, road rage, being betted you won’t do something (which makes you do it)

taurus: when you go to a restaurant you’ve never been to before and go with the safest bet, sinking into that one comfortable spot on the couch; hour by hour slouching deeper and deeper, the scary but motivating feeling of being relied on, when something says ‘take one’ and you grab a handful 

gemini: when your actions don’t match your thoughts - acting generously but thinking ‘ugh this sucks’, the bubbling feeling of curiosity when you see someone being sketchy, being bored so you start making a game out of anything, when you have one eyebrow penciled in and not the other so you start acting like two-face 

cancer: honestly just mood swings; one second you’re elated and the next you’re like what in the world, why does life feel like the worst now??, being reminded of a pastime/nostalgic days, excessive crying over a video about animals, going by the baby section and wondering what it would be like to have one

leo: when your hair is unnecessarily jam-packed with volume, those moments where you act like you’re in some dramatic production, when you have an insecurity that you’re not sure how to go about so you try to play it up in a really big way (fake it till ya make it), blurting random things or raising your voice because you want people to pay attention to you

virgo: rubbing your face on clean clothes because they smell & feel Good, when all the products at a store are lined up but there’s one that’s not and you feel it is imperative to fix it, buying a planner because you think you’re gonna become studyblr goals, looking at something and only seeing what could be improved 

libra: when you’re online shopping and putting everything you like in a basket even though you probably won’t get it, being around colleagues/people you don’t like but you know you have to play it nice, the blank feeling you get when someone asks you what you want to eat, the feeling of loneliness wanting to talk to anyone 

scorpio: cyberstalking people you hate and/or adore, getting annoyed when you can’t remember the name of something that was on the tip of your tongue, finding something that enamored you and obsessing over it all day, having a secret confided in you and thinking deviously to yourself ‘wow i could do something with this if i wanted’

sagittarius: those existential crisis moments where you get fake deep in your head, tripping over your own feet, wandering off from your group because there’s more for you to explore, when you’re driving and think ‘i could just pack my things and go on a road trip right now’ 

capricorn: the dread that comes over you when you’re about to walk up an obscene amount of steps but also the anticipation of reaching the top, feeling responsible for things you don’t have to, seeing something and thinking ‘#goals’, constantly checking the time to ensure you have enough 

aquarius: when you fix a semi-simple problem on a device and feel like steve jobs, thinking you see a ufo in the sky and wishing you would be taken captive (even tho it would be willing), seeing something and condescendingly thinking ‘how original’, saying something off-color just to see someone’s reaction

pisces: the feeling of relief being in a shower after a long day of reality, getting caught up in an activity, daydreaming while songs are playing, finding something to idealize, when everyone is talking about something and you feel like you’re the only one who doesn’t Get It
