What the hell does that mean??? No clue!!!! But it’s an old expression, yes???
Well, it’s the FIRST thing I thought of when I slid open the mall Doors this morning to open the store. And a big black bird flew in from the mall. There are a couple things about this that is weird. First, we ALWAYS get birds in the summertime and it FREAKS me out every single time. I hate birds. They scare me. I don’t know why. Maybe in a past life I was killed by one. Maybe in a past life i WAS one. Nonetheless, not a fan of birds. So, it was with a sinking heart that I slid open the doors to a big black bird flying right over my head. (Incidentally, I was always taught that a bird in the house is a harbinger of death. In much the same way as if you drop a knife, you’re going to get in a fight, and if you drop a fork that means company’s coming… Weird superstitions I know). Anyway, I decided to take that as a good omen rather than a bad and I said “we are going to have a great day!!” I shouldn’t have said that. Why did I put that out into the universe?? Why? My day deteriorated at an alarmingly rapid pace. It started with a woman I dealt with on Saturday who had a complaint about BCBG and wanted the district managers number. I researched it, called and gave it to her. She called back and wanted the regional managers number. Then, there were the 4 clients who never received their phone ordered packages via Fed Ex. They didn’t receive them because we never SENT them. I almost had a breakdown and wanted to scream at the shipping associate: “THERE IS NO FED EX FAIRY WHO WILL DO THIS FOR YOU!”! How do I explain to 4 people that we just didn’t send them out!? 8 days ago. Next lets talk about the 3 associate problems: 1 associate Swears the other needs anger management classes or she’s not going to stay and work. A different associate is crying because her co workers (all 30 years younger than she is ) went out for drinks and posted pictures (without her) on social media. Crying. Really. One associate is angry with his roommate and fears they will be evicted. Oh and in the middle of all of this.. We DO manage to sell a LITTLE makeup.
I ended my day with an irate man who couldn’t find or remember WHEN or WHERE he dropped off his suit jacket to be sent for alterations and berated me for not doing the alterations in store. (Look mister.. I don’t even OWN a sewing machine) and THEN… 20
Minutes AFTER the store Is closed.. A small family of 3 appears out of nowhere (mental note check bathrooms) and yell at ME because the entire mall closed at 6 and they had NO CLUE!! NO IDEA!!! and it’s MY fault!!! Of course it is. I looked at them and said “the mall called me. They asked what I thought and I said ‘close at 6 and don’t tell a soul!'” I shouldn’t have said that. Not very professional.
Ahhh, Sunday at the big D. You all know how I feel about THAT!! It’s like the black abyss of hell mixed with a full moon on Friday the 13th. The only thing that would have made today better were zombies and vampires!!! 😂😹. Ah, well, tomorrow IS another day.. And I do work with MRS G tomorrow!!! Woo HOO!!
