Default "Good boy!"

So I was filling stuff in household chemicals this afternoon when some harpy barked at me "Hey! See that stuff the spilled on the floor?"

I looked down, to find a sizable quantity of some kind of clear, light brown-ish water. Not coffee or soda or even pee. The best guess I could make was melted snow off somebody's shoes, but there was a bit too much there for that to be the case.

I told the harpy "Okay, I'll be back in a bit to clean that up."

Her response: "Good boy" in the tone of voice a parent might use to congratulate their kid on not wetting the bed.

I'm 29 years old, lady. I don't need to be talked down to like a 5-year-old. Oh wait, this is an SC I'm addressing.

Filling up the mop bucket in the maintenance room, I thought to myself "If she's still there and she says something else to me, I'm telling her off. I'm not paid enough to put up with this shit." But fortunately for her, and probably myself too, she was gone when I returned.

If there is one thing I cannot stand, it's being patronized. Few things will raise my blood pressure faster.

That's when you take the riding crop from out of it's hiding spot and say "No, you're a bad girl!"

THWACK!

Speaking of which, guess what the DataJager got me for christmas?

Wow Irv, for some reason I thought you were a fair bit older than that, maybe it's because you come across as so worn and jaded by SCs and inept management and/or CWs I just assumed you'd been around for quite awhile.

Irv, if that would have been me, i would have stopped, turned to stare at her rather deliberately and slowly, then go back to what i was doing till she got the hint that she annoyed me. If she leaves then, i would then go and get the mop bucket and clean it up. If she didn't, i would have continued to ignore her. If situation got too tenuous, *throw paper towl onto floor, turn back*



(yes, i totally would do that too)

And i agree with CCtheSecond. I thought you were like...45 or something. Wow.

On the contrary, I keep forgetting that Irv is actually a bit older than me and once in a while I think he's the same age as me.

Ugh, I hate when people do that! Especially when they do it in the sleazy "cooing" voice. It's like, hello, I'm not a flippin' dog!

Eep this reminded me of one of the more awkward/super ultra creepy moments I've had at my current banking gig. I'd forgotten to give this guy his ID back after his transaction, so, naturally, he returned to ask for it. When I got it for him and apologized, he decided it would be appropriate to reply with:

"Ooooooh, baaad girl! I'm gonna have to give you a spanking!"

Me: WOW OKAY you have a nice day, good bye! *runs away to the back room*

Gotta love the way that some customers think that talking to you like you are 5 years old will help them get their point across... If anything, it makes me less likely to want to help you!!!

Like when putting through a plan change on the internet and being told "oh, you are a good girl aren't you??"

What are you going to do? Pat me on the head and give me a doggy treat?
