You would think that teenagers would be the rudest customers when really it’s mostly old, middle-aged people.
No fucking joke, my absolute favorite customers are teenagers. They are always polite and patient. The older the customer is, the more nervous I get when they approach my register because nearly every single time they are absolutely patronizing and rude.
AMEN. I had an older lady approach me today and since I absolutely adore older people, I was blindsided when my reply of “3:33” to her quesition of “What time does Transformers at 12:30 get out?” apparently warranted me being screamed at (??????????????) I will never be disrespectful or rude unless it’s done to me first, completely unwarranted.
"It gets out at 3:33"
"EXCUUUUUUUUUUSE ME???!? WELL IS IT PLAYING IN TWO THEATRES OR SOMETHING?"
"Yes, it’s playing in a few different ones."
"WELL I DIDN’T KNOW!!?" with the most sour look on her face

She asked if I’m a lover
I said I’d try to be
She said love until your heart breaks
Cause there are no guarantees
I read several dozen stories a year from miserable, lonely guys who insist that women won’t come near them despite the fact that they are just the nicest guys in the world.
..I’m asking what do you offer? Are you smart? Funny? Interesting? Talented? Ambitious? Creative? OK, now what do you do to demonstrate those attributes to the world? Don’t say that you’re a nice guy — that’s the bare minimum.
“Well, I’m not sexist or racist or greedy or shallow or abusive! Not like those other douchebags!”
I’m sorry, I know that this is hard to hear, but if all you can do is list a bunch of faults you don’t have, then back the fuck away..
..Don’t complain about how girls fall for jerks; they fall for those jerks because those jerks have other things they can offer. “But I’m a great listener!” Are you? Because you’re willing to sit quietly in exchange for the chance to be in the proximity of a pretty girl (and spend every second imagining how soft her skin must be)? Well guess what, there’s another guy in her life who also knows how to do that, and he can play the guitar. Saying that you’re a nice guy is like a restaurant whose only selling point is that the food doesn’t make you sick. You’re like a new movie whose title is This Movie Is in English, and its tagline is “The actors are clearly visible”."
