you now know my coworker

hey yo @ horrible customers
please don’t call me doll. don’t call me sweetheart. or dear. or honey. or baby.
it’s not ok. you may think it’s harmless, or a compliment, but it makes me uncomfortable.
no, I am not being “overly sensitive.”

why does it bother me? a lot of reasons. You may mean well when you say it. It may be a habit or you’re trying to give me a compliment. either way it still makes me uncomfortable. you wouldn’t call my male coworkers a pet name like that, would you? no? whys that? you don’t want to “compliment” them?

it bothers me because the people who are allowed to call me those names are family. my mom calls me honey. my boyfriend calls me doll and sweetheart. you are a stranger. You don’t get to use personal pet names on me, a stranger. that’s not okay.

you wanna know another reason why it bothers me? I am 5'2. you are big and tall and unfamiliar and weigh twice as much as I do. and I can’t tell you not to call me names like that, because if that makes you upset? there’s not much I can do to defend myself, and yes, that scares me.

Just take your damn coffee and go.

sincerely,
Not Your Sweetheart

ive said this before but my job is like the most calming therapeutic thing in my life?? everyone is very nice to me and i’m working on a tiny box for tiny popsicle erasers. all of the popsicles have lil fruits next to em to represent the flavors except for the american red white and blue one cuz i just put anime sparkles, it’s sparkle flavor.

the feel of solid ground

(according to microsoft word i haven’t touched this since december 2. or: sometimes i write things and get super critical and perfectionist-y and they never see the light of day. but, given the finale, i felt like this was worth bringing out. no spoilers, not canon - but not quite an au - i dunno. it would maybe fit somewhere in 4a, if frozen hadn’t happened - i took liberties, basically. 

but have some emma leaves storybrooke - and killian - angst. inspired by the song ‘so anyway’ from the musical next to normal, which you should most definitely go listen to here.) 

so anyway,

i’m leaving.           

i thought you’d like to know.

The words hang in the air after she says them and she almost wants to take them back but she can’t. Doesn’t want to. She meant it, she—

            “So you’ve made up your mind then,” he says finally. She bites her lip, unsure of how to respond. He meets her eyes, then, and the look on his face makes her want to close the distance between them, soothe him, take it back, it’s okay, it’s okay. But she stays where she is. “There’s nothing I can say to change your mind.”

            She shakes her head in agreement. He sighs, nodding, looking away again. She blinks back the tears.

            “It’s not forever,” she tells him. “I just—”

            “You don’t need to justify it, love.”

            But she does, doesn’t she? To him, if no one else.

            And she needs him to know—she needs to make sure he understands.

            “It’s not you, okay?” And God, it’s such a cliché, but it’s true. “I’m—it’s me, and I just—”

            He doesn’t interrupt her, doesn’t take her into his arms. Just remains where he is, eyes trained on the floor, seated on the edge of the bed. (Their bed.)

(Not anymore.)

Guys I didn’t tell you my boss, who is basically my second mom, called me out about harry at work. She straight up exposed me. She was all like Kaylyn I have to say your Harry Styles infatuation is getting out of hand, like out of nowhere. And that was only based off the fact I posted on facebook about buying tickets. I’m  like Beth you don’t even know the half of it. And now my coworkers know.

And then she started talking about how much she hated his long hair and was glad he cut it. But I’m like how do you know this about him? She was like he used to annoy me in interviews and she imitated him flipping his hair. But like when did she see all these harry interviews? Also don’t do him dirty like that.

It was wild guys just because like if you know this lady,,,I never thought I’d have this convo with her about Harry. And I didn’t expect to be attacked at work like this. Like when they used to play 1d and I had to remain calm.

My Coworker Tumblr Joe

So most of you probably know about my coworker, who I’ll now call Tumblr Joe, who hates white, straight men, and thinks capitalism is the worst thing to happen to the world.  Well we’re used to him shit talking white men, and he yells at people when they say words he doesn’t like (i.e. he complained when our sup said cracker, why I still don’t know). 

Today it’s -7 degrees Fahrenheit here so a bit before the end of our shift my boyfriend grabbed my keys and went to start up the car.  When he comes back inside he says, “I think my external man bits have become internal lady bits.”

When he gets back to his desk though he sees a little message from Joe saying, “That comment was transphobic. :(”

Fucking what?  How?  Either someone needs to explain the transphobia to me or someone needs to explain what testicles, ovaries, and shrinkage is to Joe, because one of us is missing something.
