"28 school yards in four weeks? F**k off." That's what I wanted to say some time last July to my boss. Now, I didn't say this because I had a sneaky suspicion I would lose my job if I did. but my steely gaze and me speaking through clenched teeth probably spoke volumes about what was going through my mind.

Yes, I'm 10 minutes late back from lunch. Just consider this my smoke break. You never say anything to the smokers who take 20 minutes every hour (at least) even though policy only allows smoking during the 10 minute morning and afternoon breaks and during lunch.

Don't any of you morons know how to operate this death ray? I mean really, how hard is it to hit Paris with a giant laser. We all took that seminar on getting the most out of your Death Ray and it's not like it's brain surgerny.

No, you can't pet the sharks. Yes, their lasers are lethal.

If you do have to smoke down in the yard, couldn't you at least stay outdoors until you've aired a bit? (And have a mint, please, or stop exhaling in my office)

I also work in a retail setting, and while I understand wanting to say rude things to customers from time to time, actually doing so is downright unprofessional. If I or one of my colleagues has to deal with a rotten customer we do so professionally and then have a moan about it out of earshot of any customers. We're lucky in that management is very supportive of us when dealing with difficult customers, but in turn we're expected to be professional at all times. It's a fair deal.
Treat others how you want to be treated.

Would you help a costumer if they were whistling at you like a dog?

Honestly. I'm a human, treat me like one. Your reply was just the easy way out.
