The semester is almost over. I am so ready for it to be done. I want to get out. Next semester is going to be hella busy. I have to do 50 hours of community service. This semester I only had 15 so it's going to be a big change. I think it is wonderful my major requires it though. I think every college should require community service. The world would be a better place.

Everyone at this university is do damn self absorbed. I helped someone possibly fail a class yesterday. She didn't help at all in the group project and wanted to exaggerate her hours. 15 hours is not much. She left an important event early to go to a party. Community service is a great opportunity and she does that. Fuck her.

I don't think I could ever work in the service industry. People are fucking assholes and I'm too petty to deal with that shit. I work at the front desk of my dorm and when someone walks up and hands me their ID, it's obvious they want a package, but until they ask, I don't move. My record is 10 minutes. And I don't think that asshole would have noticed if I didn't catch the look she gave her friend and I commented that I can't read minds and she should clarify what she wants instead of just assuming I can read minds. I hate assholes.

    People are fucking assholes

Some people are assholes.

I like to remind that to people because it's easy to get lost in such a thought. I'm sure you checked yourself somewhere in the background. I'm sure you've noted that it's the particular kind of people you see often enough that unsettle you. But - what we tell ourselves, or about ourselves, is how we come to feel unless we moderate it. Call yourself an idiot for not solving a stupid problem enough, and you'd come to believe in it.

I don't think I could ever work in customer service for minimum wage again because it's too much bullshit. Having said that the best way to deal with those people is by being super friendly and making them feel dumb . If you wait 10 minutes to ask if they need something then they tell themselves you're just being a salty. Now if you smile big, greet them then start to look a bit confused and ask " do you...need something ?" With your cute little smile intact the whole time they'll feel like idiots.

You know who have these passive aggressive customer service skills down ? The English, it's beautiful to watch.
