I mean. Come on.

Okay so people think I can be mean and I have a short temper at times and what have you. I will admit that I am irritated really easy and that shows but some of that is people mistaking my sarcasm for me being serious. It is what it is.

Anyway, today at work I had a decision to make. This is the situation. There's this shelf in front of the register in the store that has all the testers for the lotions and shea butter for about 8 different scents. So this couple walks in and they're looking and smelling stuff on the shelf. So I hear them start complaining about how they didn't like one of them because it didnt smell like anything. So I look and they're smelling the one labeled...get this... 'Unscented'.

So. At this point I could do one of two things. I could either make them feel like fucking idiots for being loud and dumb or just leave it alone and let them move on. Now if I was as mean as people think I am I would have said something and said it loud enough to embarrass them. I know I wanted to. But I decided against it.

I also didn't point out to another lady who thought it was hilarious that one of the lotions that she liked said 'sausage' on it when it actually said 'savage'.

I am becoming a better person little by little. Very little by very little.
